Smart, funny and black! Not only do these words describe the multi-talented Amanda Seales, but they embody what she stands for. The American actress and TV personality does not hesitate to speak her mind on important issues concerning the black community, and her short stay on the daytime talk show ‘The Real’ proved this in many ways before her exit from the panel six months after joining the show.
Popularly known as a comedian and author, as well as “Tiffany” on the HBO comedy series ‘Insecure’, Amanda added co-host to her numerous titles after joining The Real earlier this year on the 6th of January. Following several controversial events based on discussions highlighted on the show, the 38-year-old announced her decision to leave during an Instagram Live with her followers on Tuesday, June 2nd.
Communicating reasons for discontinuing her contract after six months on the show, Amanda alluded to The Real as an uncomfortable space. She talked about her voice being unheard, and not being able to express herself appropriately as a black woman.
By June 28, Amanda got the chance to freely express on issues centering on racial injustice and systemic racism in America as she hosted the 20th BET Awards, held virtually due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns.
Asides sharing her intellectual charm, throughout her time on The Real, Amanda Seales consistently served us hair goals in stunning ways we will never forget. Although the 39 year old’s time on the syndicated show was shortened, her uber-gorgeous hairstyles remain sensational in our books!
By Inspiring naturalistas everywhere to embrace their natural hair in all its glory and have fun while doing it, she continues to hold onto her roots in more ways than one.
