Loni Love Really Feels For Single Mothers

Loni Love: I grew up in the projects, in the 80’s, during the crack era. I can tell you this, I’ve never heard my mother say one bad thing about my dad.

[The Real audience applauds]

Loni: And I’m going to tell you how that helped me. Because of that, I think my mom surrounded me around people… with people who wanted to be with me…

The Real hosts: Uh-huh.

Loni: … who loved me. So that’s all I remember growing up — as matter of fact, I didn’t even really know we was poor until I really looked at television. And I’m like, “People live differently than we do.” You know what I’m saying?

[The Real hosts laugh]

Jeannie Mai: Yeah, this is so true.

Loni: It was like… because it wasn’t a big deal.

Jeannie: Ignorance is bliss.

Loni: Exactly. And that’s…so I have to commend my mother for that because she never said anything bad. Even though there were sometimes that we weren’t eating….

[Loni begins to cry]

Tamera Mowry-Housley: It’s okay Loni. It’s okay.

Jeannie: Right.

Loni: I feel for this single mother.

Tamera: Yeah.

Loni: Because as a single mom sometimes you’re lonely, sometimes you want to use your child. Um… and you shouldn’t use your child. Even if you’re lonely, even if he may be going through something and he may have found someone else, don’t put your child in it. Concentrate and focus on your child and when you need a break, you know, try and get a babysitter and go out and live your life. Because that will help you and the child. It’s really hard for single mothers, it’s hard.

[The Real audience applauds]

Tamera: Yeah… yes.
