THE REAL: Sheryl Lee Ralph and Big Freedia Stop by to Visit!

Sheryl Lee Ralph (the real)

*On Tuesday, Dec. 1, co-host Garcelle Beauvais reveals to the ladies of The Real how she spent her birthday/Thanksgiving weekend – in quarantine, due to several crew members on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills set reportedly testing positive for COVID-19. She assures them she herself has tested negative so far and she is thankful she can continue to co-host The Real from home!

Co-host Adrienne Houghton takes issue with the artists who have protested about the recent Grammy Award nominations. She says that disparaging the awards takes away from first-time nominees, such as country star Mickey Guyton, who, Adrienne reveals, was an original member of 3LW!

Sheryl Lee Ralph visits to talk about the 30th Annual “DIVAS Simply Singing!”, the longest consecutive running musical AIDS benefit in the United States. She also discusses how exciting it is to meet the next generation of Moesha fans and that she would be very interested in becoming the next Jeopardy! host.

And Big Freedia stops by to talk about her book, Big Freedia: God Save the Queen Diva!. She shares her thoughts on the progress society has made when it comes to challenging gender norms.

Disparaging Awards Shows Ruins It For First-Time Nominees (Like Original 3LW Member Mickey Guyton!)

Adrienne Houghton: This is my thing: I am really proud of being an Emmy Award-winner, and that means something to me. The fact that Oprah has the same award that we have as hosts is mind-blowing and was beyond a dream come true. What happens is, if you are upset, and you didn’t get a nomination, and you go on and you air your feelings, or you say – you can air that you’re sad that you didn’t get nominated. But to say that the award no longer counts or doesn’t matter – my issue with that is that you take away from the moments of people who are having their dream come true this year who have been nominated. People like Halle x Chloe, Chloe x Halle. When I was – I was scrolling Instagram, literally it went like this: Justin Bieber’s post, The Weeknd, and then I saw Chloe x Halle – and they were girls literally in tears, losing their minds because they were Grammy-nominated. Crazy enough, I – when I got my first record deal, when Tommy Mottola signed me to Epic, the original members of my group actually had a girl named Mickey Guyton in it – she was the original member of 3LW, and she is now this incredible country artist that just got nominated as well. Saw this woman in tears – Mickey Guyton, amazing – she’s actually the original member of 3LW! Fun fact, everybody! She’s the one that got the record deal with us!

Loni Love: Wow!

Adrienne: And she is doing some groundbreaking things in country music –

Garcelle Beauvais: I didn’t know that!

Adrienne: – as a African-American woman. So! I would never want to take that moment away from her or other people that are wildly excited about their accomplishment. When you try to say that these things don’t matter, you ruin their moment. And that’s all I’m saying.

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.
