*Season 7 kicks off welcoming the show’s newest co-host, Garcelle Beauvais, and her fellow co-hosts have a special surprise for her from her longtime friend Jamie Foxx!
Then co-host Loni Love addresses how important Season 7 of The Real is in today’s changing world.
The ladies welcome The Bold and the Beautiful actress Denise Richards, who discusses her decision to leave The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and how Garcelle’s friendship helped to get her through a difficult season. In addition, Garcelle answers the question of whether she’ll return to RHOBH next season!
The hosts share their opinions on the recent monetary settlement in Louisville, KY between the city and the family of Breonna Taylor, who was fatally shot in her apartment in March. While it includes changes to police policy and there remains an ongoing investigation, the ladies discuss how it’s only a first step in changes that are needed.
Later, the hosts talk to Janaya Khan, International Ambassador For Black Lives Matter, who clarifies some topical issues under discussion recently, including “defunding” the police.
And if you discovered your significant other was cheating on you, how many times would you be willing to forgive before you would end the relationship? Garcelle shares about the time she discovered her husband was cheating on her and why she made the decisions.
