*On Friday, October 30, it’s Halloween on The Real!  The hosts celebrate this spooky holiday by representing The Most Outrageous Moments of 2020 with Loni Love as The Last Roll of Toilet Paper, Jeannie Mai as Naomi Campbell in her COVID Airport Attire, Garcelle Beauvais as The NBA Bubble, and Adrienne Houghton as Teddy Riley vs. Technology in his Verzuz battle against Babyface.

The ladies discuss the second wave of the Coronavirus that is being predicted and whether they plan on hoarding supplies as many did during the first wave of the pandemic. They also reminisce about the mistakes that they made the last time so that they will get the best bang for their bucks!

Also, co-host Garcelle Beauvais talks about her son Jax’s attachment to a pretty pink bow that he insisted on wearing during his first week of preschool, and how she decided to handle it.

Then, Angela Bassett drops in to chat about returning to production of 9-1-1after the COVID-19 quarantine, the importance of voting, and her experience being in South Africa during their first democratic election.

Garcelle Beauvais: Do you have a memorable voting experience?

Angela Bassett: Absolutely! Years ago I was invited to South Africa on the eve of their first democratic election– and to go there for seven days and go into the townships and cities and the back country to encourage people to vote for the first time– when they were, you know, maybe told by those that they work for– you talk about voter suppression– that they, “I will know who you vote for”– but to let them know that their vote was their own; it was private and secret. And then to see long, long wrapping lines of voters, some on canes, some being helped, just to have that opportunity and that privilege, I’ll never forget it.  Some, as you know, in their 90s just, you know, in– just taking up that mantle. So I always remember that with fondness. So when I came home it was something that, in my right mind and in strong body, I was never going to take for granted.

Fresh points of view, youthful energy and passion have made THE REAL a platform for multicultural women. Produced by Telepictures Productions and distributed by Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution, THE REAL is led by Executive Producer, Rachel Miskowiec (Good Morning America, Katie, The Tyra Banks Show, Judge Hatchett, The Ricki Lake Show) and Co-Executive Producer Tenia Watson (Judge Mathis, Lauren Lake’s Paternity Court, WGN-TV Morning News, Just Keke, The Test) and shot in Los Angeles, California.

The new prices take effect Thursday for any new members signing up while current subscribers will receive a notification 30 days ahead of the price increase. 

Netflix said the price hike is so that the company can continue to “offer more variety of TV shows and films.”

“We understand people have more entertainment choices than ever, and we’re committed to delivering an even better experience for our members,” a spokesperson said in a statement. “We’re updating our prices so that we can continue to offer more variety of TV shows and films — in addition to our great fall lineup.”

*Before “The Lips” was revealed as Wendy Williams on Wednesday’s episode of “The Masked Singer” (watch above), the daytime talk show diva delivered a wildly off-key rendition of Odyssey’s “Native New Yorker” in which she repeatedly spoke to the audience, and even laugh-snorted at one point, which she followed up with an, “Oops.”

Watch below:

It was a train wreck, but it was all part of the fun. Wendy, the judges and folks online all had a good laugh over the whole thing, especially after it became quite obvious that The Lips was indeed the native New Jersey-an.

Watch her ask host Nick Cannon about his ex Mariah Carey during her unmasking interview (video at the top), and she recaps her entire experience on the show in the backstage interview below.
