Ever since Tamar Braxton was fired from The Real over a year ago, speculation has been bubbling as to who — if anyone — would take her place. Many guest hosts have come and gone, but now it looks like one very well known celebrity is coming forward to claim the throne permanently. At least, that’s what it sounds like.
See what recently happened at the Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood reunion in the BET Breaks video, above.
Imagine our surprise when we saw Ray J post an announcement that he would be the one to take over the fifth chair on the popular daytime talk show.
The Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood star recently took to Instagram to hint that he may have just landed a permanent spot on the all-female panel talk show, posting a photo of him with the ladies, supported by the caption, “Loos like a [sic] got a new job!!! Stay tuned!! #TheRealwithRayJ #telepictures #DaytimeTV.”
Take a look for yourself, below:
Now, we know Ray loves the cameras — a lot. When he appeared on a recent episode as a guest host, he was certainly in his element. But does that mean this is a permanent new job, as he says? None of the ladies or the show’s executives have confirmed his claims, so we’re only staying cautiously optimistic. But, if true, this would be very interesting, indeed.
Ray J revealed that he and his wife, Princess Love, are expecting their first child together during his recent appearance on the show.
