A real-life journey that takes a person from a latchkey kid of a loving and hardworking mother in Detroit’s Brewster-Douglass Housing Projects to a stand-up comedienne/movie star/bacon loving television personality is not something that happens easily or often, but somehow Loni Love pulled it off with her usual aplomb. Not to say there wasn’t a lot of hard work getting there, but when Love puts her mind to something, well, you better move out of the way.
Loni Love is currently a co-host of The Real, the one-hour daily talk show now entering its second season on Fox stations. The nationally syndicated show (with a rebroadcast in primetime on cable network BET) was touted by the New York Post as “fun, funny, involved in life, outrageous by nature, warm and, most of all, real.” Along with her talk show duties, Loni and her various wigs will host the upcoming Ellen DeGeneres produced Heads Up game show. Based on the popular app where contestants have to give clues to another player so they can guess which subject is ‘on their head’, the show will debut on the HLN network in January, 2016.
