TV Amanda Seales and Tamara Mowry Leave "The Real"

Amanda Seales is Leaving "The Real": "It Doesn’t Feel Good To My Soul"
by Denise Petski, Nellie Andreeva
June 4, 2020

Amanda Seales is saying farewell to daytime talk show "The Real".

My contract is up … and I didn’t renew it because it doesn’t feel good to my soul to be at a place where I cannot speak to my people the way they need to be spoken to,” Seales said during an Instagram Live earlier this week. “And where the people who are speaking to me in disparaging ways are not being handled,” she added.

Sources tell Deadline she was offered a new deal, but declined to stay.

I’m not in a space where I can, as a full black woman, have my voice and my co-workers also have their voices and where the people at the top are not respecting the necessity for black voices to be at the top too,” Seales said.

She later posted a follow-up statement that her decision to exit the show had nothing to do with her co-hosts.

Do not try to create some false dissension between me and the co-hosts of The Real. Y’all so f***ing corny,” she said. “There is a whole pandemic and an uprising going on, and you still can’t find s*** else to do but try and create some kind of conflict that doesn’t exist? … What I gotta do with my business ain’t got nothing to do with them sisters.
