*On Thursday, May 9, the ladies of The Real discuss whether new mom Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex should feel obligated to reconcile with her estranged father and half-siblings so that her newborn son can develop a relationship with them.  Also, when the co-hosts bring up a recent behind-the-scenes challenge Adrienne reveals her fiercely competitive side.

Then presidential candidate Senator Cory Booker visits to talk about what drives his passion for gun control, his proposed bill to combat maternal mortality and whether his girlfriend, actress Rosario Dawson, is up for being First Lady if he wins his bid for The White House.

Later, actress Lorraine Toussaint (pictured above with the ladies) stops by to chat about her television series The Village, her psychic abilities and her thoughts about doing nude scenes at the age of 60.

Jeannie Mai: Now, we all love your girlfriend, Rosario Dawson. She’s amazing!

(The Real audience applauds)

Jeannie: Ok so, how is she dealing with the fact that her man is running for the highest office in the land?

Senator Cory Booker: Yea, talk about putting a challenging dating environment… but, uh, we’re really doing incredibly well.  And in many ways, the challenges are giving us opportunities to bond even more.  And so, I just feel every day I wake up with, I mean she’s gifted to me just a better perspective on life, what’s important, and just more energy.  I just feel like I’m the most blessed person on the planet now to be dating her and to be running for the highest office in the land.

(The Real audience applauds)

Senator Booker: She makes me more courageous in my heart and to speak on this campaign trail about issues that really matter to people at the heart level and not just the head level.

Senator Booker: I feel very, very committed to our relationship, committed to this and so who knows what the future’s gonna hold in politics and all of that. Politics is temporary.  Your life partner, should we get there, that’s forever, so…

(The Real audience applauds)

Loni Love: You kinda stumbled when you said “life partner”.

Senator Booker: (Laughs) I don’t want to get myself in trouble.
