The Real is said to be in the vein of the View and the Talk, but with a younger and entirely ethnic panel. (All five hosts are under 40),” Deadline reports. Fox stations took a chance with the syndicated talk show Bethenny last Summer, which proved to be successful. They are hoping the Real will follow the same pa

Braxton can be seen on the reality series Braxton Family Values, in which her sister Toni Braxton is of course involved with as well. Tamara has been promoting her latest album entitled Love and War on the family centered show. Comedienne Loni Love tours the United States performing stand up, and is also a regular panel guest on Chelsea Lately. Bailon is known for her work on the Disney Channel’s original movie the Cheetah Girls, produced by Whitney Houston. Mai has recently been a host on the Style Network’s makeover show How Do I Look?.
