Issa NEW year, a NEW decade, and one of our favorite shows has a brand NEW look!
That's right, the hit daytime talkshow The Real has officially added comedian Amanda Seales as the show's new co-host. After returning from their holiday hiatus, the hosts made the announcement welcoming Seales with confetti cannons and and an heart warming hoorah. The actress turned authoress serves as the panel's fifth host next to Tamera Mowry-Housley, Loni Love, Jeannie Mai, and Adrienne Houghton.
As mentioned in the clip above, Seales earned her seat on the panel as a guest co-host during last few months of 2019 and with her undeniable charisma, insight, and and regular dose of gem droppin', it was a no brainer to make things permanent.
Yes, while many viewers may take some time to get used to Seales and the interesting new seating arrangement, I am personally overjoyed.
What some may not realize is that Amanda's uniquely broad perspective is desperately needed in daytime television. Seales has been in the entertainment industry since childhood starring in the classic nickelodeon show "My Brother And Me" but Amanda didn't truly return to the spotlight until adulthood allowing her time to live a life of many other eclectic real world experiences.
In that time Seales has earned her Masters degree, lived as an artist/poet in NYC, served as a CNN commentator, 1/2 of of the music group Floetry, forged an impressive career as a host/comedian garnering her own stand up special, and of course starred in the hit HBO show Insecure.
Also let us not forget that time she gathered Caitlyn Jenner like 90's side ponytail.
Ahead of her daytime debut, Seales even wrote a book, titled "Small Doses: Potent Truth for Everyday Use" inspired by her extremely successful podcast, of the same name, where Amanda gives introspective self help advice for listeners.
As a part of The Real, Amanda stands to elevate the already heightened importance of the program's goal, to give a voice to underrepresented minority women. If nurtured properly, Seales will be able to fully flex her education in African American Studies, provide a raw/unfiltered wisdom, and clarity into the many stories discussed at the table as the fabulously successful, single, and sexy 38 year old proud Grenadian woman that she is!
In short, this is gonna be GOODT!
