Amanda Seales Becomes Permanent Co-host on ‘The Real’

The "Insecure" star Amanda Seales replaced Tamar Braxton in the popular daytime talk show "The Real." The announcement was made after nearly four years of rotating co-hosts. 

"The Real" has a new permanent co-host, and it's a familiar face. Comedian Amanda Seals officially became the co-host of "The Real" after serving as a guest co-host in the show throughout 2019. 

Seals will join Jeannie Mai, Loni Love, Tamera Mowry-Housely, and Adrienne Houghton on the set of the hit talk show.

In a video shared by the official Instagram page of the show, Love welcomed Seals as the newest member of the team.

The audience welcomed her with roaring applause as she danced her way on the set. Seals got emotional as she talked about how it felt to be a part of the family. "I didn't expect to cry," she said

In another video, the comedian shared that it was great to be a co-host of the show and how swimmingly the days went by. 

"It’s really just dope to come to a space where there was four women who I get along with on and off-screen. We have different personalities and we have different points of view, but that’s the world."

According to her, it's an honor to be able to have her voice heard and talk to the world every day. This is the first time that the show got a permanent co-host after Tamar Braxton left the show in 2016. 

Braxton stopped speaking to the other co-hosts following her exit from the show. According to her, the other co-hosts had been the reason why she was fired from the show. 

It wasn't until October 2018 that "The Real" co-hosts addressed the allegations. Love revealed that Braxton's ex-husband and former manager, Vincent Herbert, was claiming that the co-hosts were the reason why his ex-wife was fired from the show. She talked about the matter with "The Breakfast Club."

"I called my attorney and I said, ‘You gotta call We TV and let them know if they’re naming us, we’re gonna have to have legal action. We had nothing to do with it. That’s defamation of character."

In June 2019, Braxton apologized to her former colleagues through an Instagram video. She and Herbert got divorced a year later after she was fired from the show.
