The Real” has come to the end. 

The daytime talk show starring Loni Love, Adrienne Houghton, Garcelle Beauvais, and Jeannie Mai Jenkins has been canceled by Warner Bros. after 8 seasons at Fox stations.

Rumors of the cancellation began circulating in mid-March, but Loni Love informed the public that a decision hadn’t been made.

She also asked that the public give grace to the 150 crew members a cancellation would impact.

Now, that the cancellation is official Loni released a statement where she shared that she believes COVID costs “killed” the show. 

In the end The Real cast & crew did everything we could to scale the show down..We shot 7-8 shows in 3 days, no audience, made a conference room into a studio, but in my opinion Covid costs killed this show…it’s been a great ride and thank you to the audio for allowing 8 seasons of show that was Emmy winning and historic.

Most importantly thank you to the viewers for riding with us.. this is not goodbye but see you all soon!

No matter what the news u read… I’m so proud of me. Of everything I do. Whether on camera, on red carpets, or just home typing this in my sweats. I’m still that girl from the bay who got here!?!! ????⚠️ ????

I am THANKFUL to experience this life God chose for me. Like magical moments that happened last night!!!

I celebrated the lives of WOMEN who are learning and fighting every day to live heart healthy and strong to be the best moms, survivors, & fighters we can be.

Love to the ladies who walked beside me to raise awareness to the #1 cause of death in women – heart disease ❤️???????? #AHRD #reddresscollection @goredforwomen
