*The women of “The Real” are reportedly at odds over money and actress Tamera Mowry-Housley is said to be at the center of the drama.
According to the Daily Mail, Adrienne Bailon and Jeannie Mai are not pleased that they are allegedly only being paid a third of what only Mowry-Housley and Loni Love are making. Tamera is reportedly the highest paid of the bunch.

An insider claims the working relationships among the ladies began to deteriorate back in April following the Emmy’s.
“Once they won the Emmy, Jeannie and Adrienne started complaining about how they knew they weren’t being compensated the same as their fellow co-hosts, Loni and Tamera,” the insider told the Daily Mail. “They were even talking about staging a walkout… Initially, they wanted both Tamera and Loni to support them in their quest to get better deals on the show, but when both ladies declined that definitely meant that lines were drawn.”
The tension reportedly worsened earlier this year when Tamera and Loni refused to speak up for their lesser paid co-hosts to receive raises. As such, Adrienne and Jeannie threatened to stage a walkout.
There’s also reported personality issues among the once tight crew. Mowry-Housley is also accused of not “keeping it real” by refusing to acknowledge her Republican views and alleged support of Donald Trump.
Tamera two weeks off after her 18-year-old niece by marriage was gunned down in the Borderline Bar and Grill shooting in Thousand Oaks, California, in November.
Ratings for the show reportedly improved by 13 percent the week she was gone and “The Real” saw its highest growth in more than a year.
The source said: “Of the four hosts, Tamera has the highest salary. And while she was gone from the show, the ratings jumped. Both girls kept saying, “How’s she making the most money and the show is doing better without her being here?” That gave them the leverage they needed to justify their ask for more money.”
