*On Thursday, Feb. 6, the hosts of “The Real” discuss how Little Women’s director Greta Gerwig mentioned in a recent interview that making the movie made her introspective about her own girlhood versus her adulthood. While the ladies share how they have evolved since their childhoods, co-host Tamera Mowry-Housley confesses to actually regressing from her confident youth and succumbing to criticisms and doubts as an adult.
And with Valentine’s Day around the corner, co-host Amanda Seales admits that she has never had a valentine but still loves the holiday and is open to someday sharing it with a mate!
Then, actress and producer Patricia Heaton stops by to talk about her sitcom Carol’s Second Act and how the advice that her late Everybody Loves Raymond co-star Peter Boyle once gave regarding his own experience with drinking has kept her motivated throughout her 18-month sobriety.
Later, actor and musician CeeLo Green and his fiancée Shani James pay a visit to discuss participating in Marriage Bootcamp and why they have not yet tied the knot after being engaged for four years. CeeLo also confirms the exciting rumor that Gnarls Barkley is reuniting to create new music!
Tamera Wishes She Still Had Her Childhood Confidence
Tamera Mowry-Housley: I can remember when I was younger… it was actually the opposite. Like… I didn’t think I couldn’t do- I could not do anything. Like, the sky was the limit.
Amanda Seales: Right.
Tamera: If somebody said, “No, Tamera, you can’t do that”, when I was younger, I was like, “Yes, I can!”
(The Real audience applauds)
Tamera: But… it wasn’t until I actually got older when I started making agreements with negative criticism, judgements of other people. So, that little girl started to- to go away and that confidence, I was struggling with.
Adrienne Houghton: Wow.
Tamera: But, I think that little girl back in the day… she’d be proud of the person that I am now.
(The Real audience applauds)
Jeannie Mai: Yes.
Loni Love: Yeah. Definitely. And I wanna…
Adrienne: Bring her back. Bring her back.
Tamera: Yes! Got that confidence, now!
