*On Wednesday, October 16, the ladies of The Real discuss how they keep the honeymoon phase going in their relationships once the courting stage is over. They also voice their opinions on people who portray lives on “the gram” to look much better than they actually are in real life.
Co-host Tamera Mowry-Housley confesses to feeling enraged enough to throw things during her pregnancy due to uncontrollable hormones, and co-host Loni Love recounts the time she hit a man over the head with a bottle for hassling her friend at a bar!
Then, celebrity entrepreneur, recording artist and DJ, Paris Hilton drops in to talk about her new fragrance “Electrify,” relaunching her YouTube channel, and why she does not want a reboot of her former hit reality show, The Simple Life.
Later, Pose’s MJ Rodriguez stops by to chat about recently attending the Primetime Emmys, having a weakness for nerdy men, playing “Audrey” in a local production of Little Shop of Horrors, and her advice to LGBTQ children without compassionate support systems at home.
MJ Rodriguez’s Advice To LGBTQ Children
Jeannie Mai: You also came from loving and supportive parents. I wanna know, MJ, what’s your advice for children who don’t have supportive parents on their side?
MJ Rodriguez: We, I mean, for most of them I would say, like, you know you have to constantly make sure that you find spaces for your own individuals of the LGBT community that see you, that are like-minded like you, you know, relate to you. If you don’t have that then you’re not going to be able to find the right foundation, you know… And also know yourself as much as you can… and not care.
(The Real audience applauds)
Jeannie: Is there a different way that you talked to your parents in order to foster that?
MJ: Yeah, I mean listen… As all parents do, they go through many trials and tribulations with their kids whether they get a tattoo, an earring, you know. It’s the same thing. You know, I just tried my best to educate my parents when I was talking to them. I tried to make sure that I articulated the way I felt or how I feel to them. They understood. So, it was good.
