Simone Missick: Why Luke Cage is Such a Global Hit

Monica Explains Her Tattoos!

Monica: I am covered like your average gang member…

[Photo of Monica and Shannon Brown appears on screen.]

Monica: [Continued] ..I am, all over. But you know what, each tattoo represents something that I experienced, that I got through. Everything that you see on me, I can tell you exactly what happened. The reason that the face of Jesus is on my arm, my mom said, “You know Jesus, you don’t need to look at him every day!”

[The Real audience laughs.]

Monica: But I wanted to look at him every day because there was a time when I would wake up and I didn’t even know why my eyes were even opening. I’m like, “Just let me go back to sleep, make the pain go away.” And I would look at my arms, even when I showered and I would get this level of strength that I couldn’t explain to other people. So everything on me, my neck’s done. My back’s done. My entire right leg is done. My arm is done. And uh… I wear it proudly at this point now.

[The Real audience claps.]

About The Real

THE REAL is a daily, one-hour Emmy® 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 Bailon, 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.
