*On Friday, March 27, on an all-new The Real, it’s a Viewers’ Choice Fri-Yay! The hosts answer Girl Chat topic questions from viewers including a mother that is anxious about her post-baby body and is asking for advice on how to improve her self-image. Co-host Tamera Mowry-Housley draws from her own experience of being insecure about stretch marks and that she works on acceptance of her body every day.
Then, Tamera and co-host Loni Love advise a young girl who’s being bullied for having a darker skin tone. Loni points out that she, Tamera and co-host Amanda Seales are three women of different color and they are “all beautiful in their own way”. Tamera recalls the advice she once received from her mother after being judged for her skin color by a childhood playmate.
Later, actress and reality star Garcelle Beauvais stops by to talk about joining the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, experiencing a more emotional side of herself during taping of the show, and reuniting with the cast of Coming To America for its sequel.
Tamera Still Deals With Insecurities About Her Pregnancy Stretch Marks
Adrienne Houghton: Anybody here does not have stretch marks?
(The Real audience is silent)
Loni Love: Exactly.
Adrienne: Right? Not one person put their–
Amanda Seales: I don’t have stretch marks.
Loni: (To Amanda) You don’t have stretch marks?
Amanda: (Shakes her head)
Loni: Because you’re thin.
Tamera: Or… something that you don’t like about your body, though.
Jeannie Mai: No. That’s not true. Thin people have stretch marks, too. But, that’s great!
Tamera: Yeah. Yeah.
Adrienne: But, they’re more common than not. You know what I’m saying?
Loni: A lot of the time, stretch marks are because, one- you could have lost weight. Maybe you’ve had your children. I would think of it in a different, positive way…
Loni: Where, if those stretch marks are on my stomach because of my baby… (To Tamera) Can I say it? I tell her this all the time. I said, “You have two beautiful children. That is your pride mark. That’s a beauty mark.”
(The Real audience applauds)
Loni: “Don’t feel bad about that!”
Tamera: True. I am currently still going through that.
Amanda: Can I ask you that?
Amanda: I feel like sometimes, like, there’s things you may not like about your body and then people kinda like inadvertently make you feel bad about you feeling bad about it. Do you know what I mean?
Tamera: Yes! If I’m honest… my daughter is four and the second child. My skin is, I mean, it’s stretched a lot more, and I am still working on accepting that every single day. Some days, I’m like, “Yes! This was a beautiful house that kept my children safe. You know, I have two beautiful children and there are women out there who would love to have kids and be fine with those stretch marks.” And then there are days that I’m like, “Urrr! I hate this! I feel very insecure. I don’t wanna put on uh, you know, a bathing suit.” And my husband, he loves me as I am…
(The Real audience applauds)
Tamera: Thank you! But, at the same time…
Amanda: But that’s not– that’s you!
Loni: As a friend, I would not let her feel– I’m a friend and I’m not gonna let my friend feel bad.
(The Real audience applauds)
Loni: If that– it’s my job to say, “You look beautiful to me. Now, if you wanna keep feeling bad all day, fine. But, I’m gonn’ tell you that you look good. ”
Tamera: That’s on me. (Laughs) I will tell you this, it gets better…
Tamera: It gets better each and every day. I’ve learned to accept… that.
Amanda: And I think there is a power in just being like, “Yeah, I don’t really like my stretch marks. But, we out here.” You know what I mean? Like, you know it’s just like…
Loni: But, it’s different women…
Tamera: (Laughs) Acceptance.
Adrienne: Acceptance. Again, it doesn’t mean you have to be like, “I love this!” But, you just gotta accept it and be, like, “This is what it is.”

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”

Kenya Moore’s Date with Kanye West That Went Left: ‘That Was A Disaster!’ / VIDEO
*If you missed it, earlier this week Kenya Moore was on the “Wendy Williams Show” in the “Hot Seat” Where she revealed an interesting story about what went down after a date with Kanye West.
“I did go out with Kanye once,” Moore told Wendy. “That was a disaster.”
If you’re thinking, “What kind of disaster?” … you’re not alone. She explained that after the date, they went to West’s home, which is when things got well … interesting.
“Somehow we ended up going to his house and there were some very explicit things on TV,” she added. “I was lost. He left me alone wandering around his house and then when I followed the noises, he was watching something on TV that he probably shouldn’t have been.”
Apparently, that was all Miss Kenya needed to see ’cause she said it was time to go ghost.
“So that was my exit,” Moore recalled. “As much as I love him, that was just the craziest thing.”
Wendy’s show is not the only place she’s shared her experience with the rapper. Check out what the “RHOA” star told Access Hollywood in 2013.
“He was really sweet when I met him. He seemed very humble. I thought he was a great guy. It was just friendly, ‘Hey, I want you to hear some music.’ It was all above board. I’m very happy that he’s found love and that (he) and Kim [Kardashian] are having a good relationship.”
Kanye’s actions towards Kenya do seem strange given her attractiveness. So you have to ask what would make him basically end the date without telling her and go watch porn … by himself with her in another room. Is it just him? Hmmm …
In any event, if you’ve followed Kanye West you know he’s admitted to dealing with porn addiction in the past, so hearing of this incident is not all that surprising.
Meanwhile, the rapper, who recently received a Gospel Grammy nomination, has not responded to Moore’s recollection of their date.
