*On Monday, March 6, “The Real” co-host Adrienne Houghton makes a surprising admission about the only person she would ever donate her eggs to. She and the hosts debate the best places to take bathroom selfies, and if using an app to help adoptive couples is a good idea.

In addition, “The Real” welcomes actress Anika Noni Rose from BET’s “The Quad,” who talks about the lack of strong roles in Hollywood for women of color.

Adrienne Houghton Wants To Donate Her Eggs

Adrienne Houghton: I absolutely would be willing to donate my eggs, but it’s not for sale. I would not offer up my eggs for sale. I actually have a person very close to my life who would love to have children in the future that can’t have children.

Loni Love: Not me!

[The Real audience laughs.]

Adrienne: No its not you and um I would love to be able to do that. I think that um if I could give somebody that gift of being a parent and they physically can’t do it themselves, I would be more than happy to.


Adrienne: In this particular situation, it’s somebody very very close to me, so I am going to go through the procedure and actually put some eggs aside that he can use in the future. And we have decided that me and Israel would be the god parents of this child. This child would know that I am their biological mother.

[The Real audience applauds.]

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.
