Daytime television may be getting its most diverse panel of opinionated women ever when "The Real" hits airwaves starring Tamar Braxton, Loni Love, Tamera Mowry-Housley, Adrienne Bailon and Jeannie Mai. And we're loving it already. Watch the trailer inside....
We previously reported on Telepix has teaing up with several FOX affiliates to announce a younger, hipper version of "The View". And now, the first preview has hit the net.
Starring singer/reality star Tamar Braxton, actress Tamera Mowry-Housley, TV personality Adrienne Bailon, comedian Loni Love and fashion expert Jeannie Mai, the new chatfest, "The Real" is set to debut in several select cities on July 15.
The roundtable style show will feature the five busy career ladies dishing on everything from the latest celeb gossip to their views on love, sex and relationships.
In her cast bio, "The One" singer, Tamar Braxton, said she hopes fans will get to see a different side of her when the show kicks off on July 17th.
"A lot of people think, because they see me on ‘Braxton Family Values’ as the youngest of five sisters, that I’m this brat and I’m just spoiled, but on this show I get to be a woman. I get to give you my real opinion about life, about pop culture, and finally be identified as just a regular lady."
And actress Tamera Mowry-Housley thinks the show's diverse cast is what will really distinguish them from other programs on television.
"I love to be traditional and just because you are conservative or a traditional person doesn’t mean you have to be boring! …The greatest thing about America is its diversity and this show reflects that diversity. No matter who you are, there is someone at this table that will be speaking for you."
