Do two cohosts of 'The Real' secretly hate each other? Social media seems to think so after a few on-air spats between cohosts Jeannie Mai and Amanda Seales. While Mai has been with the show since its inception in 2013, Seales is a recent addition to the panel. She joined the daytime gabfest in January, three years after the tumultuous exit of original cohost Tamar Braxton in 2016. Seales has brought an academic perspective to the show that has recently discussed deeper issues compared to the usual lighter fare.
