It’s about to get real for former Cheetah Girl Adrienne Bailon…
The 29-year-old Puerto Rican and Ecuadorian American singer/actress will reportedly form part of The Real, a new syndicated daytime talk show, according to Deadline.com.
Bailon will join actress-singer Tamera Mowry, singer Tamar Braxton, television personality Jeannie Mai and comedian Loni Love on the new talk panel, which will be getting a trial run this summer on some of the Fox-owned stations.
The exact markets and time periods are still being ironed out, the Telepictures-produced talker is reportedly looking at a July 8 launch date.
The Real is reportedly similar in scope to ABC’s The Viewand CBS’ The Talk, but geared towards a younger and more ethnic panel, with all five hosts under 40.
The Real is looking to follow in the footsteps of another Telepictures syndicated talk show, Bethenny, which had a successful summer run on Fox stations last summer before getting a nationwide launch this fall.
It’s been more than five years since they worked together on the MTV movie All You’ve Got… And, it looks like Adrienne Bailon and Julissa Bermudez are picking up where they left off.
The 28-year-old Puerto Rican-Ecuadorian American singer, actress and former Cheetah Girls star and the 28-year-old Dominican American singer, actress and co-host of BET’s 106 & Park will star in a new original series on the Style Network.
Entitled Empire Girls: Julissa & Adrienne, the hour-long docu-series centers on the two fabulous Latina best friends and starlets, in New York City, as they strive to conquer the cutthroat world of show business and find love and happiness… all by the time they turn 30!
Bermudez and Bailon became best friends while filming All You’ve Got, even requesting to share the same trailer. Since then, the fashionistas have been there for each other through thick and thin, as well as their loves and losses—all while making noise and a name for themselves along the way.
Empire Girls will premiere on the Style Netwok on Sunday, June 3 at 9pm ET/PT.
