*Amanda Seales feels like the odd man out and has revealed that she declined to renew her contract on the hit show, The Real.

Seales has been criticized for how she reacts to topics and her sometimes animated facial reactions when at the table tackling hot issues with her co-hosts, Jeannie Mai, Loni Love, Adrienne Houghton, and Tamera Mowry-Housley. She told her friend, Brandon Victor Dixon, that she just didn’t feel right moving forward.

“You know what happened to me today. I’ve arrived because my contract is up at “The Real” and I did not renew it because it doesn’t feel good to my soul to be at a place where I cannot speak to my people the way they need to be spoken to and the people who are speaking to me, in disparaging ways, are not being handled. I’m not in a space where I can, as a full Black woman, have my voice, and my coworkers also have their voices and where the people at the top are not respecting the necessity for Black voices to be at the top too. So you know, you just reach a point…even when it comes to Hollywood in general, you’ve seen me transform me into a way where I just can’t function in the same way anymore. I just can’t.”

Jeannie Mai, her cohost who she was sometimes at odds with, is probably sitting somewhere with a big grin on her face.

Later, in a follow up posting, Seales went at folks who suggested that her departure was based on her relationship with the other hosts.

“Y’all so f–ing corny. There is a whole pandemic and an uprising going on, and you still can’t find s–t else to do but try and create some kind of conflict that doesn’t exist? …What I gotta do with my business ain’t got nothing to do with them sisters,” said Seales.

Seales joined “The Real” in January 2020. It was the first time the show had a fifth permanent co-host since 2016 when Tamar Braxton was shown the door.

*We just got word that Nicki Manaj has given birth for the very first time. So, congrats to Nicki and husband, Kenneth Petty for the birth of their first child.

Knowledgeable sources tell TMZ that Madame Minaj gave birth on Wednesday in L.A. However, the new parents have yet to share the sex or the name of their new bundle of joy.

Nicki announced her pregnancy back in July, posting a series of photos showing her looking at least 6 months along and captioning one post, “#Preggers.” She did the photoshoot with famed photographer David LaChappelle.

Nicki’s planned to become a mom for quite some time … remember, last September she claimed she was retiring from the rap game to start a family. She eventually got back into music but also got married to her childhood friend.

by the way, word is that her hubby was right alongside Nicki when she gave birth.

It looks like the barbs have someone new to fawn over.
