*On Wednesday, Jan. 16, the hosts of The Real talk about the new Gillette ad and if it is offensive to masculinity. Co-host Tamera Mowry-Housley says while she feels the ad is constructive, it’s most important to get positive messages from parents. The ladies also discuss the beauty of getting along with your ex, and co-host Jeannie Mai expresses how glad she is that her ex-husband has found happiness.
Then The Real reaches out to a government employee in Lincoln, IL – a mom with six children who has been affected by the shutdown – and lends her a helping hand. The show will be reaching out to people in similar situations during the rest of the week.
Later, Love & Hip Hop creator and executive producer, media mogul and author Mona Scott-Young visits to talk about her new book, Blurred Lines, as well as Cardi B and whether reality show stars are responsible for their actions!

Loni Love: Reality stars often blame the editors and the producers for the way they are portrayed on TV.
Mona Scott-Young: I know.
Loni: What do you have to say about that?
Mona: Wouldn’t it be great if we could just have someone that we could just say, “They made me do it?”
Mona: As we go through life every single day? We all do things everyday that we think about it, we’re not proud of, we don’t love – wouldn’t it be convenient? If we had somebody we could point to and say it was all their fault? You know, like? But I mean listen, I always say, it’s not a magic box, right? That camera? We all do things that we look back at and we wish we had handled differently and maybe not have done or said that, and it’s easy to point the finger and blame producers for that. But these guys know – none of it is scripted, it’s all them.
Tamera Mowry-Housley: Got it.
Mona: Own up to it!
Loni: Own up to it!
Tamera: Own up to it!
