Earlier this month we told you that daytime television was getting a little flavor. Tamar Braxton, Tamera Mowry-Housley, comedienne Loni Love, Adrienne Bailon and media personality Jeannie Mai all got together to talk about love, sex, food, dating, marriage and all around women’s issues.
The show which is supposed to debut Monday, July 15, is said to bring a younger, more diverse perspective to the issues the older, daytime ladies only gloss over. The ladies even cover interracial relationships. A topic of particular interest considering Tamera is in an interracial relationship. As she explains the struggles and the side eyes she and her husband sometimes get, Tamar explains that there was a time when she viewed black men dating white women a certain way.
Each of the women have their own unique perspective and share why they’re so excited about participating in the show.
Tamar: 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.
Comedienne Loni Love, a native of Detroit, is a regular guest on “Chelsea Lately” and “The Smoking Gun Presents: The World’s Dumbest” speaks about the show is going to be used to help the ladies discover themselves.
Loni Love:The five of us, we are still trying to figure out our lives…What people are going to find out about me from this show is that I used to be an engineer, I was raised in the Brewster projects, I became an entertainer, and I am still discovering myself.
Adrienne Bailon, the Latina star of Disney’s Cheetah Girls had this to say.
We are Latino Americans, we are mainstream, we speak English, and we want to be able to watch English language television that still represents us.
Jeannie Mai a media personality best known for her hosting job on the show “How Do I Look?” had this to say about challenging Asian stereotypes.
You know what really bothers me, the fact that there are so many Asian stereotypes that nobody has stepped forward to break…I have an amazing driving record, I haven’t had a ticket in the last five years, I can’t play the violin to save my life nor the keyboard, I suck at math and I’m proud…So how do you like them wontons?
Take a look at the preview of the show on the next page. Looks like it should be good.
