New mom, Joseline Hernandez, will be co-hosting The Real from January 23 to January 27. The show’s website reveals that Hernandez will take a seat at the Girl Chat table for the entire week as The Real’s special guest co-host.
Joseline Hernandez, who rose to fame on Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta, will be talking about the birth of her baby daughter Bonnie, the dispute with Bonnie’s father Stevie J, and her latest project on the new series Star.
Real Drama in Joseline Hernandez, Guest Co-Host’s, Life
One wouldn’t think that Joseline Hernandez gave birth just a month ago. In December, Joseline gave birth to Bonnie Bella Jordan, daughter of Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta co-star Stevie J. Things have not been that rosy for the former couple as they were embroiled in a legal battle.
Hernandez had tweeted that Stevie J. had molested 6-year-old Eva, his daughter with fellow Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta co-star Mimi Faust. Stevie J then filed a defamation lawsuit against Hernandez in July 2016.
Speaking about the fact that the lawsuit was dismissed due to Stevie J. not appearing at the court hearing, Joseline opened her heart to the panel at The Real.
“You know, I’m not even mad at him. You know, people go through things and the thing, the most important thing right now is that we can co-parent.”
Joseline: A Real Woman With Real Issues
Soon after the first episode of Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta aired, rumors were rife that Joseline was a man. To prove her feminine prowess, Hernandez posted a nude picture of herself on social media. Joseline regrets giving into public pressure and exposing herself in such a way.
Joseline also felt pressure in her home life. Growing up poor, Hernandez felt the need to help out financially at home. This she claims is the reason she started stripping.
“Ever since I was 16 I’ve been giving my mom money. I’m talking about $600 a month, a thousand dollars a month; if you need food, if you need to pay for the mortgage.”
The fact that Hernandez has a gay brother, was a struggling dancer and singer, and has an autistic brother makes her someone that viewers can relate to. These characteristics are some of the things that fans value about Hernandez, and no doubt at The Real too. It allows Joseline Hernandez to co-host as an authentic person, somebody that has not had a perfect life.
The Real Has Not Yet Filled Tamar Braxton’s Shoes
Over the last year, The Real’s guest-co-host seat has been filled with the likes of Angela Simmons, Mel B., Monica and Ashanti, in a bid to try and find the right mix on the all-girl talk show. The Real’s producers did not renewing Tamar Braxton’s contract last year and with her abrupt exit, The Real was lacking a co-host. Loni Love confirmed that the quartet of co-hosts would move forward with a fifth co-host on The Realin the future. During an interview at the Tom Joyner Morning Show Love revealed more about The Real’s intentions.
“We don’t know who they’re going to choose…More than likely it won’t be a man…We’re gonna have another co-host.”
At the time Monica, Eve, Mel B. Ashanti’s names were flying around as the main contenders for the co-hosting position on FOX’s The Real. With the recent turn of events, one has to wonder if Joseline Hernandez is The Real’s latest guest host contender and if producers are struggling to find a replacement for Braxton. One wonders if the guest co-host spots are auditions for a likely candidate and if Hernandez will make the cut.
The show may have found a budding co-host in Joseline Hernandez. The Real shouldn’t delay in raking the starlet in though, as Hernandez’s star is on the rise as she makes her acting debut in the musical drama Star as Michelle, a stripper in a club. Here’s to predicting that great things are in store for Joseline Hernandez, and that The Real guest co-hosting gig is just the start of more good fortune coming her way.
