Now y'all know I love Tamar Braxton and her departure from the daytime talk show "The Real" really hurt my feelings. The show, co-hosted by Loni Love, Tamera Mowry-Hously, Adrienne Bailon, and Jeannie Mai, had been running with just the four women since Tamar's abrupt exit in 2016. Tamar had been with the show since it debuted in 2013 and was the first co-host to leave. She seemed unbothered at the time but the following clip from "The Braxton Family Values" showed otherwise.
After filling the empty seat with guest hosts the producers at "The Real" have decided to permanently fill the seat with Ray J Norwood!
That was my face when I saw the announcement!
I was surprised but not in the least bit disappointed. I think it's a good look for the show to add an male co-host. No other show has such a diverse mix and honestly, Ray J has a baby on the way and all extra money is good money! Folks were wondering what Tamar felt about the choice but, trust me when I say, Tamar ain't worried about being replaced, she's got a lot of other fish to fry. I'm kind of excited to see what's in store for "The Real"! Congratulations Ray J!
