*On Friday, Oct. 9, the hosts of The Real speak about how people of color need to come together to fight racism, especially discrimination borne from the Covid-19 crisis.

Co-host Loni Love makes the point that the Civil Rights Act is not just for Black people, and the social justice protests are fighting for many of us.

And co-host Adrienne Houghton admits to not ever working out until after she was a part of 3LW and refers to their music video “No More” as to proof of never knowing anything about crunches beforehand.

Then the ladies welcome Laz Alonzo who talks about where his love of plants came from, his hit show The Boys, and his thoughts on how the NFL is handling racism following the movement Colin Kaepernick started.

What position do the hosts take on the topic of watching porn with their significant others? While Adrienne thinks that porn is hilarious, her co-host Garcelle Beauvais confesses to which kind of adult content she prefers.

Later, Ledisi joins the ladies and discusses her new album The Wild Card, the op-ed she wrote for Billboard on the challenges of being Black in the music industry, and what inspired her dramatic weight loss.

Asian & African Americans Work Better Together to Fight Racism

Loni Love: People of color have to come together.  When you have a leader that is trying to divide and conquer us, it’s no good. So, I believe that by saying “China Virus” and using, like, all these slurs…

Adrienne Houghton: It’s divisive! It’s divisive!

Loni: … to try to divide and conquer us, the thing is that the Asian community typically does keep to themselves… especially when it comes to the Black population. I mean, they have the stores and they have the nail salons, but we really need to start coming together. And, coming together for protesting. Coming together as a people. Because that is the way we make change. We’re all people of color, we’re all going through different types of racism. So, we all just need to come together to fight it.

*EDIT*

Loni: Just because you see Black people out here protesting, we’re protesting for everybody. When Martin Luther King and the civil rights workers were able to get the Civil Rights Act passed, that was for everybody! Civil rights is not just Black people! Sometimes people think, “Oh, that’s just a Black issue,” it’s not. The Civil Rights Act covered women…

Adrienne: It affects all of us.

Loni: … anyone who’s not a white male, it covered. It covered everybody!

Garcelle Beauvais: That’s right.

Loni: So, understand that. LGBTQ, it covers gender, it covers everything.  So, understand when we are out there on the streets protesting, we’re protesting for you, too!

Garcelle: For everybody.

Loni: That’s why we ask for allies. That’s all I’m saying. Just don’t think that it’s just a Black problem. It’s all of us. All of us.

*The Aretha Franklin biopic “Respect,” starring Jennifer Hudson, has been pushed back to summer 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is the second time the film has been delayed.

“Respect” is now moving from Jan. 15, 2021 to Aug. 13, 2021. 

We previously reported… Hudson has spoken out about the biopic, noting that she shared a special connection with Franklin. Before her passing in 2018, the music icon gave Hudson her blessing to play her on the big screen.

Directed by Broadway veteran Liesl Tommy, the film also stars Forest Whitaker, Marlon Wayans, Audra McDonald, Tituss Burgess, Marc Maron, Kimberly Scott, Saycon Sengbloh, Hailey Kilgore, Heather Headley, Skye Dakota Turner, Tate Donovan and Mary J. Blige.

Months after filming on the project wrapped, Hudson said this of Franklin: “I still feel like she’s in me, I really do. I just hope to meet her requests. You think you respect Aretha, but once you see the film and you learn her story, you can’t help but to have a newfound respect for her.”

She also had this to say about her personal connection with the Queen of Soul, “I still have the text chains, so every now and then I look back at them. The last time I spoke to her was Aug. 8, [2018,] and I can honestly say she sang until her last breath.”

In related news, filming on National Geographic’s Genius: Aretha starring Cynthia Enrivo has been halted after a background actor tested positive for COVID-19. The program is slated to debut in early 2021. 

When asked about the competing projects in an interview earlier this month, Hudson dropped some subtle shade, saying  “I know that Aretha was adamant that [her life] be a film. If it’s not a film, it’s nothing. I’m just honored that she picked me to play her.”

Wayne Brady Demands Social Media Platforms Do Better at Protecting Underage Girls [VIDEO]

*Wayne Brady is calling out social media networks to take more responsibility in protecting minors. 

Brady appeared on “The Talk”, and expressed his concern about platforms like Facebook and Instagram making it easy for perverted men to send inappropriate private messages to underage users. 

Brady recalled the experience of his 17-year-old daughter Maile, and how he and his ex-wife Mandie have been monitoring her social media accounts, ET reports.

“Mandie monitors Maile’s Instagram and social media because even when she’s near-grown—’cause she’ll be 18 in February, you are still a child, so we have to monitor that,” he said. “And these grown men see her dancing and whatnot, and they just slide in.”

Brady said Mandie once pretended to be their daughter and interacted with an older man.

“Mandie got on the line with one of them and was, you know, texting back and forth and he was talking slick, until he realized that it was her,” Brady said. “And then she’s like, ‘What the hell are you doing?’ And he’s like, ‘I just broke up with my girlfriend, and I just saw her.’ That doesn’t mean anything. You tell that to your cellmate when we put you in jail. You can talk all about your post-breakup relationship then.”

Brady then called for social media companies to do better at implementing tools for reporting and removing child sex predators.

“You can try to block a person’s account and report them for hate speech… you can report them for trying to be someone else, but in order to really get to them to say, hey, this person is saying something damning or showing images to a young woman or even to a woman who gets a salacious pic, all of the tap dancing you need to do to get that person reported shouldn’t happen,” Brady said. “If this is what social media is, make the tools available to deal with these reprehensible people.”

Scroll up and hear/watch Wayne Brady tell it via the clip above. 

Tune in to “The Talk” weekdays at 2 p.m. ET/PT on Global.
