Lynn Whitfield’s Dramatic Face Off With Oprah Winfrey
Loni Love: Now, Oprah’s on the show. Y’all get in some heated arguments. How did you have the courage to talk like that to Oprah?
Lynn Whitfield: I know!
[The Real hosts laugh.]
Lynn: First of all, we did the rehearsal.
Lynn: And, we looked at each other and we were so excited that we got to do something so juicy that we were just doing the happy dance.
[The Real audience claps.]
Lynn: We were like “go team.” And, then when the camera was rolling and it was my close-up and I said I am actually about to hand it, you know just hand it to Oprah Winfrey, right.
[The Real audience laughs.]
Lynn: And what I had to do is I needed “craft.” That’s when craft came in. No, this is my sister, this is sibling rivalry. This is she’s like messing with my family and before I knew it, that finger came out and it was all on her chest.
Adrienne Bailon: Yes! I love it!
[The Real hosts and audience clap.]
Lynn: And then she came right back at it and that’s sparks. That’s what you call drama.

About The Real
THE REAL is a one-hour, daily talk show hosted by the dynamic, Emmy® nominated team of Adrienne Bailon, Tamar Braxton, Loni Love, Jeannie Mai and Tamera Mowry-Housley on Fox Television Stations and in national syndication (check local listings), with a rebroadcast on cable network BET. Led by five bold, diverse and outspoken hosts, these women reflect the home audience and unapologetically say what women are actually thinking. Their unique perspectives are brought to life through their candid conversations about topics ranging from their own personal lives to the news of the day to beauty, fashion and relationships. Emmy® nominated for Outstanding Talk Show/Entertainment in its second season, THE REAL is unlike other talk shows, since each of the five hosts is admittedly a “work in progress,” and fearlessly invites the viewers into their lives. Their fresh points of view, youthful energy and passion have turned the traditional talk show on its head. Produced by Telepictures Productions and distributed by Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution, The Real originates from Los Angeles. Rachel Miskowiec (Good Morning America, Katie, The Tyra Banks Show, Judge Hatchett, The Ricki Lake Show) is Executive Producer.
