|It got real ugly on The Real.|
The Real is a daytime syndication show that features Tamara Mowry-Housley, Adrienne Bailon, Tamar Braxton, Loni Love and Jeannie Mai.
The Real is on BET during the nights, Fox and CW-owned television stations during its normal run.
The show is similar to juggernauts The View and The Talk.
The five host talk about issues that involve pop culture, politics, women's issues and family.
Warner Bros. Distribution owns the rights to the show.
According to the Council on American-Islamic Relations, two women who were watching a taping of The Real were told to move out of their seats after complaints from Mowry-Housley.
The Raw Story and Addicting Info obtained information about the controversy.
The women were allegedly asked to sit off-camera during a taping of the daytime show The Real in Los Angeles this past February. CAIR’s Los Angeles office said in a statement that, while the women complied with the request, the studio had no legal authority to enact such a rule.
“No studio should maintain such a discriminatory policy that prohibits people wearing religious head coverings from being seen in its studio audiences,” said Fatima Dadabhoy, a civil rights attorney for the group. “It’s especially baffling that this particular show would want to hide their visibly-Muslim viewers, when the show purports to cater to a wide-ranging audience with its diverse cast.”
CAIR’s statement also highlighted a remark from one of the show’s hosts, Tamera Mowry-Housley, gushing about the show’s diverse outlook.
“I love to be traditional and just because you are conservative or a traditional person doesn't mean you have to be boring!,” she said on the show’s website. “The greatest thing about America is its diversity and this show reflects that diversity. No matter who you are, there is someone at this table that will be speaking for you.”

“Warner Bros. policy is to welcome everyone and anyone into our studio audience,” the studio said in a separate statement. “The Real is a show that was created to represent and celebrate diversity. We take this inquiry seriously and are looking into the matter.”
Tamara and her sister Tia Mowry-Hardict are the famed Mowry twins. They are very close at most things. Politics is not one of them.
Mowry-Housely is married to Loserville radio host and contributor Adam Housley.

In one response he said, “The fact that in this day and age, we get attacked for our interracial relationship is beyond sad…it is pathetic. Yes I am white. Yes she is half black. Marrying a white man does not erase her color and marrying a woman who is half black does not mean I am blinded. The problem isn't pigmentation…the problem is backwards, bigoted thought from people who should know better.
I guess Adam got into Tamara's head that Muslims are "Oh so scary" and the repeated talking point about "radical Islam" in our country.
Tamara had a fit and told producers to get rid of them. Only accusations and not proven fact. But due to her political standings on issues, it's likely fact.
