On Monday, Nov. 11, The Real welcomes guest co-host comedian, producer and writer Robin Thede of A Black Lady Sketch Show.
The ladies recap the red carpet and all the fun from the E! People’s Choice Awards last night. The hosts reveal if they would step in if they thought a friend was making a bad decision, and while co-host Adrienne Houghton believes in leaving matters of the heart alone, co-host Tamera Mowry-Housley says that her friends know to expect the truth!
Erika Jayne from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills joins the table to chat about her latest role – she’ll be playing Roxie Hart in Chicago on Broadway!
Then rapper, songwriter and entrepreneur Rick Ross stops by to discuss his new book, Hurricanes: A Memoir, his album, Port of Miami 2 and his sneaker line, “Way of Wade Sneakers.” He talks about whether he prefers to make his own music or produce other musicians, and how important hard work is to making it in the industry.
If You’re Going To Be Friends With Tamera, Expect The Truth!
Adrienne Houghton: I believe when it comes to matters of the heart, you leave those things alone, that’s just me and I’ve learned that from experience.
Tamera Mowry-Housley: But like, what if it’s for an immoral reason? Like this dude is just wrong.
Adrienne: Prepare that you will no longer be her friend and she will still be with that man.
Jeannie Mai: What?
Robin Thede: It’s heartbreaking… ok…
Adrienne: Most likely.
Tamera: Even if he’s beating her? Even if –
Robin: Oh no, that’s crazy.
Adrienne: Oh, beating! Beating, that’s –
Loni Love: One person at a time, please!
Tamera: Even if he’s – but that’s what I mean! Sometimes friends can be really blind – love blinds you, you know what I mean? So with me, my mouth can get me in trouble. I just, I can’t sit there and not –
Jeannie: I love that about you.
[The Real audience applauds]
Tamera: — and not say anything. And it’s not what you say, it’s how you say it, so I think I would give a little disclaimer, you know. And then if you’re gonna be friends with me – don’t ask me. ‘Cause you know you’re gonna get the truth. That’s me. Don’t ask me.
Jeannie: That’s what I love about you.
