Ashanti’s Mom Used to Crash Her Dates!

Ashanti: My mom was so similar. She would usually drop me off to my boyfriend’s house. She would actually come inside…

Jeannie Mai: No!

Ashanti: [Continued] I’m telling you. It was so embarrassing. She would come inside. [Ashanti imitates her mom.] “Hi, I’m Tina. How are you? This is your son? This is your dad?” And my mom would sit there in the living room.

[The Real audience claps.]

Ashanti: [Covers face.] And I would be like, “Oh my Gosh, ma! Please don’t, don’t do that.” She was always up in there.

Jeannie: That’s crazy.

Tamera Mowry-Housley: When were you guys allowed to date?

Ashanti: Well I started… Well allowed and sneaking, I started sneaking I would say about fourteen, thirteen, fourteen somewhere around there.

Jeannie: You’re so lucky!

Tamera: Yeah.

Ashanti: Don’t tell her because she’s over there. [Laughs]

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.
