Last week, I was contacted to do a fun segment on the new daytime talk show "The Real". "The Real" is shown on FOX networks in LA, Houston, Tampa, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Washington DC and NYC and airs at 11am, 12pm or 1pm depending on the city.

It debuted this past Monday to great ratings (it won its time slot in the NYC market according to The Hollywood Reporter). The show is hosted by a bunch of FAB women: Jeannie Mai of Style Network, Comedienne Loni Love, Music Diva Tamar Braxton, American recording artist/former "Cheetah Girl" Adrienne Bailon and Tamera Mowry-Housley, of Style Network's "Tia & Tamera".

My good friend Miss Jennie Mai--whom I've worked with a bunch of times--had told the producers that I would be perfect for a segment where three "Gay Besties" came on to give uncensored advice--from dating, grooming, to shopping--in short, EVERYTHING we "Best Gays" do EVERYDAY to our best girlfriends. The segment was originally title "Flaming Truth" (LOVE IT!!!) but was changed to "Gays Of our Lives".
