The Real co-host Loni Love sat down with MadameNoire to dish about representation and the challenges she faces being a full-figured, dark-skinned woman on a hit daytime talk show.

Although her co-hosts Jeannie Mai, Adrienne Houghton and Tamera Mowry-Housley are also women of color, Loni noted their differences are why she has to always be mindful of what she says on air.

“Being on a show like The Real, I’m the darkest and I’m the biggest girl,” Love said.

“You have to understand, even though they’re women of color, you have to look at the women of color I’m sitting next to. If there’s a certain subject, there’s a certain way I have to deliver things because if I have this thin Asian chick next to me and I’m barking at her that’s the way it’s going to look to America.”
