Seales has played guest co-host on the show several times, and it looks like she made a lasting impression, according to The Jasmine Brand. “She guest co-hosted on the show for a while and they loved her, she really connected with the audience,” a source gushed to the outlet.
Seales will potentially be joining Tamera Mowry-Housley, Loni Love, Jeannie Mai and Adrienne Houghton as The Real’s fifth co-host, and the first new hire since Tamar Braxton’s exit in 2016. The nationally syndicated, which premiered in 2013, landed a new contract that runs until 2022.
In addition to delving into daytime TV, Seals appears on HBO’s Insecure and debuted a successful stand-up comedy special, I Be Knowin’, with the cable network last year. Seales recently released the book Small Doses: Potent Truths for Everyday Use, and hosts the podcast, Small Doses with Amanda Seals.
