On Thursday, March 26, on an all-new The Real, the ladies discuss why most people feel obligated to share their relationship statuses on social media. Co-hosts Loni Love and Jeannie Mai explain why they decided to go public with their respective relationships when they did instead of keeping them private.
And, when is the right time to voice your expectations regarding sex after entering into a new relationship? Loni prefers to get the topic out into the open pretty quickly and gives an example of how she thinks that conversation should go. Meanwhile, Jeannie and co-host Adrienne Houghton would rather see what their new partner has to offer in the bedroom first!
And, co-host Tamera Mowry-Housley confesses she can be so loud in bed that her husband Adam often has to assist her in containing her boisterous outbursts. Surprisingly, his actions have the opposite effect!
Why Loni & Jeannie Decided To Share Their Relationships On Social Media When They Did
Jeannie Mai: I would have loved to stay private about my current relationship. But, it became, um, it became weird to have to bob and weave and hide.
Loni Love: Mmhm.
Jeannie: Something that’s happening that’s so organic and natural.
Tamera Mowry-Housley: Yeah.
Jeannie: So, we were actually dating for a whole year and then we went public. So, people flipped out because it felt too soon too quick.
Loni: Yeah. And they don’t know because they– it ain’t none of their business!
Jeannie: ‘Cause they don’t know. Right!
Jeannie: (To Loni) How long did you wait before you shared James?
Loni: It’s what, what, about a year.
Tamera: A year.
Jeannie: A year. So, you guys did the same thing that we did.
Loni: Yeah, it was like a year. But, it’s like…
Jeannie: Did– When you guys went– When you guys went out in public… (To Tamera) Sorry, Tam. I just wanna ask this. (To Loni) When you went out in public were you afraid fans would see you and catch you with James? And then… get pictures?
Loni: No. No, it wasn’t even about that. It’s my business!
Jeannie: Right. Right.
Loni: Social media, to me, is not my life…
Jeannie: So, you didn’t even hide it.
Loni: It’s a part of my life. But, it’s not my life….
Tamera: But, did you tell…
Loni: I’m not about to let nobody, no stranger, control my relationship and tell me something.
(The Real audience applauds)
Tamera: I understand that. I understand that. Did you tell your…
Adrienne Houghton: But, at some point you did. So, why?
Loni: Well, because the fact is, you know, I’m on a show. It’s something different. I’m talking about, if I was private I probably would have never out him on… until I got married… if I get married…
Tamera: Would you tell some of your friends?
Loni: I’m not saying I’m married. I’m not…
Adrienne: I heard “If”. I heard “If”.
Tamera: Loni, I have a question.
Adrienne: Never heard that before.
Tamera: I have a question. I have a question.
Loni: And, more importantly… let me tell you what happened. My E.P. ran into a party with me. It was Dr. Drew’s party, and I didn’t know that she was gonna be there. I would never had James to come.
Tamera: So, that was my question for you. Did you not even tell some of your friends? Your mom?
Loni: No, my friends knew.
Tamera: Okay, they knew.
Loni: But you guys, you know, you all summer. So, in Summer we don’t really contact each other.
Jeannie: That’s the same thing that…
Loni: So, all this was going– (To Jeannie) yes. Thank you!
Jeannie: When Malika took the picture at my birthday party and posted it, we were so bummed about that ‘cause…
Adrienne: Who told you about it?
Jeannie: Who told? (To Adrienne) Did you?
Jeannie: Wait! Wait! Wait! You did! Oh my God!
Jeannie: Yo! That’s right! Oh my God! And…
Adrienne: I said, “Yo, Jeannie, there’s a picture up on Instagram and I’m pretty sure it’s not supposed to be there!”
Jeannie: And I checked… and I checked, like, The Shade Room…
Tamera: Who posted it?
Jeannie: And I saw it up…
Loni: The Shade Room got it and they were basically… outted.
(The Real audience applauds)
Jeannie: (Runs over to Adrienne and hugs her) Friend! You’re a real one! Oh my God! I totally forgot! Thank you!

It’s All About H.E.R. Music / WATCH
*H.E.R. is a soulful R&B singer, who plays electric guitar with the style of Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton. Yet, she has her own style of singing and her own manner of playing the guitar.
While it is more common to see female singing recording artists playing piano during their performances, it’s a bit more of a rarity to see the combination of a female singer-electric guitarist, especially one that has designed a Fender Stratocaster for the iconic guitar maker. In essence, she is the first Black woman to have her own signature Strat, which she showcased when she appeared on “Saturday Night Live” this past October (2020).
As the show’s musical guest, H.E.R. performed her new single “Damage” and debuted “Hold On.”
During the two-time Grammy-winner’s extraordinary vocal showcase on “SNL”, it was difficult to miss her guitar brilliance and even harder to miss the uniquely designed guitar she was playing.
“The H.E.R. Stratocaster makes a statement as bold as the artist who inspired it,” said a Fender company executive.
“I’ve looked up to a lot of guitar players, but there haven’t been many Black female artists who have been in this position and have been able to represent Black women,” H.E.R. said. “The goal is to inspire with this guitar.”
H.E.R. adds that the idea of what’s she is doing as a guitarist goes beyond inspiration, as she wants to leave a legacy.
“The legacy I want to leave is just to inspire and pass the torch on to the next girls who want to kill it on the guitar,” said H.E.R.
Lakers Re-sign LeBron James and Anthony Davis / VIDEO
*Los Angeles Lakers fans are too thrilled these days because the chances of winning another championship in 2021 just got better. If you haven’t heard, the team announced on Thursday that they have officially re-signed both LeBron James and Anthony Davis.
First up was James’ deal. He inked a two-year, $85 million contract through the 2022-23 season on Wednesday. The extension will take him into his age 39/40 season, but because he’s LeBron James his age doesn’t matter. He’s still performing at an extremely high level.
“LeBron James is a transcendent basketball player and human being,” said vice president of basketball operations and general manager Rob Pelinka in a press release. “LeBron put his trust in the Lakers in 2018, and now this contract extension paves the way for LeBron to further solidify his legacy as an all-time Lakers great. We could not be more honored by this commitment.”
Now, let’s talk about AD, Anthony Davis. He was a free agent this off-season, but he signed his new deal with the Lakers only hours after James on Thursday morning, opting for a five-year contract worth up to $190 million. Many thought the 27-year-old would sign for two years with a player option for the third season, as that would have given him the most flexibility possible and allowed him to re-enter the market for his next deal having just met the criteria (10 years of service) to earn up to 35 per cent of the cap, reports Sportsnet.
“In the Orlando bubble, Anthony Davis proved he is one of the game’s most complete and dominant two-way players,” Pelinka said of the big man. “Now, Lakers fans get to watch AD continue to grow and lead our franchise for years to come. This is truly a blessed moment for Lakers Nation.”
With these deals done, it appears that both players expect to play a good deal (or most) of their respective careers with the Los Angeles Lakers.
Lynn Whitfield’s Sewing Lessons Have Paid Off – Check Out Her First Creation [Pics/Video]
*”Greenleaf” actress Lynn Whitfield took to Instagram to show off her newfound sewing skills and her first design. In the video, she says she feels like a kid in a candy store with all the possibilities.
Here’s how she captioned the video:
“I made this skirt In this time of staying in, I’ve been feeling a passion to make things as I see them… as I imagine them… as I design them to be. Maybe in some intimate way, I can shape what my world would look like, feel like, even in the simple exercise of making a holiday skirt.
“In part it’s nostalgic… The women in my family were always preparing for some event, big or small, and they loved it… Mardi Gras, Easter, Christmas… It didn’t need to be expensive but it always had to be beautiful. The women in my family love a good skirt!
“Making my holiday skirt… this felt like something new for me to explore… a hands-on expression of myself through fashion. It was grounding to imagine and design something as I saw it. And I love it… #xoLynnWhitfield”
