*On Monday, March 9, the ladies of “The Real” discuss the need for prenups and non-disclosure agreements (NDA) in certain relationships, especially for those who are up-and-coming in their careers. Co-host Loni Love reveals why she made boyfriend James sign an NDA and co-host Adrienne Houghton wonders if all the hosts should have signed one, too, knowing that Loni has a memoir being released soon.
Then, the hosts confess to the bad habits that they have been recently attempting to break. Co-host Tamera Mowry-Housley’s description of her habit has her co-hosts “cracking” up!
Later, actress and author Grace Byers stops by to talk about her latest children’s book I Believe I Can and the love/hate relationship she has with New York City following a traumatic experience of being hit by a truck during an already difficult time in her life.
Also, rapper Waka Flocka and his wife Tammy Rivera drop in to chat about their reality series Waka & Tammy: What the Flocka and how their relationship has evolved since their vow renewal. Waka talks about striving to be a positive example to his community by becoming a psychologist someday and by ending the stigma of rappers have to be “hard” by him publicly showing love for his wife and children.
Loni Made James Sign an NDA
Loni Love: In certain relationships, and you know if you coming up, that you need to make them sign a NDA. Because…
Amanda Seales: What does NDA stand for?
Loni: Non-disclosure agreement.
Jeannie Mai: Non-disclosure agreement.
Loni: I don’t care whether you on television or not. If you know you’re coming up in the world and things are happening- ‘cause you notice how all of a sudden- like, Jessica Simpson and all of them are writing these books? And they’re telling their side of the story and everything?
Loni: Possibly, if they had an NDA, they couldn’t do that. ‘Cause that could ruin your brand. Somebody making false- I’m not saying what she’s saying is false…
Adrienne Houghton: But, just in general.
Amanda: But, your perspective is different.
Loni: In general- You know what I’m sayin’? It could really hurt your brand. It could hurt, you know, you as a person.
Adrienne: That’s a great point!
Loni: You might consider that.
Adrienne: So, if you’re doing prenups or agreements contractually before moving in together, maybe before going into a serious relationship, you should consider an NDA.
Loni: Yeah. I mean, I’m just sayin’. I have one, you know. I made James sign one.
Jeannie: It’s not gonna stand…
Tamera: You did? Whoooa… You made James sign one?
Loni: Yeah. Because the NDA isn’t for him. It’s because of the people around him.
Adrienne: Question. Question. You wrote a book. Should we have signed an NDA?
Loni: Yeah, you should have.
(The Real audience laughs)
Adrienne: That’s why she’s saying it! That’s why- she just put us- a warning out there… But the warning for us is a little too late.
Amanda: Not for me.
Loni: But, I did not say anything ba- (To Amanda) No, you’re not in the book, yet. ‘Cause that’s another chapter.
Loni: But, I did not say anything, um… defamatory… about you. You know what I mean? I wouldn’t that. See, that’s what I’m saying. It depends on the person, too.
Loni: You get with a person- I know James isn’t gonna, you know uh, “She’s a freak.” Uh, yes I am.
