Tamera Mowry-Housley: I met you at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner last year, you met my husband and I.

Cornelius Smith Jr.: That’s right. Yes.

Tamera: What was it like meeting the former president and first lady of the United States?

Cornelius: It was really a treat. It was a dream come true, really in every way imaginable. It was an honor. It was fantastic. It was a little nerve wrecking, but we had so much fun. I’ve never been in that kind of environment before. I had a chance to shake his hand and gave the first lady a hug. And she let me know that she was a very huge fan of mine. And I was like wait a minute, what?!

[The Real audience claps.]

Adrienne Houghton: That is so dope!

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.
