Adrienne Houghton’s Thanksgiving Dinner with the Jacksons!

Adrienne Houghton:  I actually spent Thanksgiving with the Jackson family.

Angela Simmons:  No, really!

Tamera Mowry-Housley:  I didn’t know that!

Loni Love:  Hee hee!

Adrienne:  Yes, exactly!  And that’s the sound I made [referring to Loni] when I found out I could join them.  I was living out here and I was in 3LW at the time and we were working with this great producer who’s actually Rebbie Jackson’s son, Austin Brown.  Shout out to you!

Loni:  Hey!

Adrienne:  [to Angela] You know Austin!

Angela:  Yes!  We’re friends.  I just saw him recently!

Adrienne:  Inaudible.  Austin invited us to join their family.

Angela:  Awesome!

Adrienne:  It was Thanksgiving dinner and it was awesome, you guys!  Literally, it was in the Encino house.  The house that you see in the movie on VH1.

Loni:  Neverland?

Adrienne:  No, not Neverland.  The original Jackson home.  The house that you actually see in the VH1 movie The American Dream movie.

Loni:  Oh!

Adrienne:  It was in Encino.

Loni:  Okay.

Adrienne:  And the weird part was, you guys, it looked exactly the same.

Angela:  The same.

Adrienne:  The same from the movie.

Loni:  Really?

Jeannie Mai:  Wow!

Adrienne:  It was like all the decorations, all the décor was the same, which is just awesome to see that!

Loni:  Michael was there?

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 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.
