Fans are eagerly awaiting the third season of The Real to see what transpired from the scouting of replacements for Tamar Braxton, who was booted from the show earlier this year. While some loyal viewers may have already made their choices of whom they wanted to sit in the empty seat, it looks like that's not the route the show's going in, as The Real is now officially a four-woman panel.
According to the show's season three teaser, the show will move forward with the four remaining co-hosts: Adrienne Bailon, Loni Love, Jeannie Mai and Tamera Mowry-Housley. Reports say that executives ultimately decided not to replace Tamar and just keep going with what they've got.
With Tamar's exit, the co-hosts are reportedly more equally yoked in their respective "personas," with each having their own specific identity to bring to the panel. Adrienne is the youngest who brings the "fresh perspective" and now the only singer on the panel; Loni is the comedian; Jeannie is the fashion expert; and Tamera is now the sole mother on the panel.
The third season of The Real premieres on Fox on September 12.
