Stephen Bishop’s Advice From Denzel Washington
A Long Lost Brother & Sister Are Reunited After 18 Years
Jeannie Mai: And I know that in your past, Denzel had given you some words of advice to kick off your career? Talk to us about this.
Stephen Bishop: This is the Denzel story. I’ve been holding on to this for a long time, so you guys are going to get the exclusive. About 2000… 2001, I went to Sammy Sosa’s birthday party and I was walking through and I saw somebody over there in the corner by themselves and I recognized the New York hat. And I’m like, “Wait that looks like Denzel.” So I walk over and I say, “Hey Mr. Washington, listen, I don’t want to bother you, but I’m a young actor. I’m trying to do what you do, as well as you do it. Could you give me some advice?” He said, “Yeah, for sure. Don’t ever speak for your work, let your work speak for you.”

About The Real
THE REAL is a daily, one-hour Emmy® and NAACP Image Award nominated talk show on Fox Television Stations and in national syndication (check local listings), with a rebroadcast on cable network BET. Led by bold, diverse and outspoken hosts – Adrienne Houghton, Loni Love, Jeannie Mai and Tamera Mowry-Housley — 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 hosts are 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.
