Christian fans of ‘The Real’ disappointed in Christian co-hosts’ inappropriate responses to bi-sexual guest [VIDEO]

Share “The Real” just got a little too ratchet for Christian viewers, which is why some are expressing their disappointment in the producers as well as its Christian co-hosts.

When the daytime talker welcomed this week’s guest host “Love & Hip Hop” reality star Joseline Hernandez, her sex talk went way too far over the edge for faith viewers.

“I love women. Everybody knows I’m bi-sexual so I love women too and I’ve cheated with beautiful women—some of the most beautiful women in my life,” said the 30-year-old in a “girl chat” segment discussing the lame things some men say to cover up their cheating ways.

“And I’m like a man,” continued the ex-stripper formerly known as Shenellica Bettencourt, “I want it and I’ma get it. I’ma lie and I’ma cheat. And you know men lie and women lie, and we all lie.”

While no one already familiar with Joseline’s history of proudly owning her bi-sexuality and promiscuity was surprised by her sexual forwardness, many viewers were shocked and taken aback by the responses of Tamera Mowry-Housley, Jeannie Mai and Adrienne Bailon—all outspoken believers in Christ.

Instead of reeling in the new mom who just gave birth to a daughter, Bonnie Bella, weeks ago, Jeannie encouraged her.

“This is refreshing to me,” she said, adding that she has “respect” for Joseline’s honesty, and then goes on to suggest that an “open relationship” would be a better option than cheating.

As Joseline, the ex-girlfriend of Stevie J, father of baby Bonnie, reaffirmed her enjoyment of both sexes, she propositioned Tamera, saying, “You’re welcome if you like.”

“Oh my Lord!” replied the former “Sister, Sister” actress with a shocked look on her face.

To the befuddlement of everyone, Jeannie, however, yelled and clapped, “Do it, Tam! Do it! Do it, Tam! Do it!”

This action made others wonder, why would a Christian woman give exuberant encouragement to her married Christian friend to commit adultery by engaging in a same-sex affair?

“Did she say what I think she just said?” asked Tamera, intimating that she was unclear about whether or not Joseline was seriously asking her for sex. “Did you just invite me to your bedroom?”

“Let me tell you something. I’ve had a crush on you since we was like kids,” Joseline replied.

Adrienne, who recently wed worship leader Israel Houghton in a lavish Parisian ceremony chimed in, “Well then Tam-Tam,” using Tamera’s nickname, “some of your fantasies can come true.”

Things got even more baffling when, instead of rejecting the invitation to compromise, Tamera told Joseline, “I feel honored. You’re so pretty. Thank you. You’re very pretty.”

Come again?

You’re honored by someone asking you to dishonor God, your faith and your marriage?

Oh, okay.

Some disappointed fans vented beneath the video in the comments section on YouTube. Here are some of the reactions:

Sabrina Courty:

If you're going to be Christian, be Christian. Stop this. Tamera and Adrienne are married and claim to be Christian- this is not okay. Shameful.


Can someone OPEN MINDED explain to me this....they're so christian right? so when a bi person steps in and invites them to participate in something that is considered a SIN, they're honored, Jeannie yelling "DO IT DO IT" ....like why not just say "i don't swing that way"?? I genuinely feel like these hosts are just suck ups, for the first time ever I WANT TAMAR BACK! She would've been R.E.A.L on this whole cheating thing!


I'm highly bothered by the reaction from Jeannie and Tamera, mostly from Jeannie. I understand Tamera was probably most caught off guard by Joseline's invitation so she laughed it off and asked what was going on. I've been in those situations before so I know how uncomfortable that can be and all you can say is "uh well uh thank you" to avoid the awkwardness…but come on sis, as professing Christians, there are some things you just don't entertain or encourage, even for the sake of girl chat. And adulterous, not to mention homosexual, behavior is definitely one of them. Again, I recognize the convo was all very light hearted, but still, as followers of Christ we're to be set apart in all things. 1 Peter 2:9-12 Peace and Grace.

Micky Rose:

I'm not judging anyone but sometimes I'm confused. Tamera, Jeannie and Adrienne talk about their Christianity a lot but their reaction to sin sometimes makes me go hmmm. It happens a lot especially when they talk about sex. I don't know. I'm not saying that they have to be perfect but if you enjoy or are entertained by something that the Bible preaches against that's between you and God, but don't use your platform to present it to others because it might cause them to sin. I hope I make sense. And again I'm not judging them. I, myself I'm not perfect.

Nunya Biznass:

Besides Loni the rest are so called Christian women and they are all justifying this, laughing like it's cute and acting like little girls, well little girls.....#girlbye

Leah Kozel:

WOW The Real had been killing it with the WORST co-hosts possible. I actually might stop watching it after this string of awful and awkward discussions...smh so disappointed in the decision-making of the producers

Erica Brooks:

The Real is going to hell. This show is just getting more & more ratchet. Ugh. I can't bear to even watch the clips anymore.

Do better, ladies. Your platform is powerful. Don't allow it to be used to undermine faith and biblical values. This certainly is disappointing.
