Blended Family Rules: ‘The Real’s Adrienne Bailon on Becoming a Stepmom

adrienne bailon

The U.S. Census estimates about 50% of families are some form of stepfamily. The stepfamily has become the modern family.

Today on the FOX daytime panel talk show, The REAL, during its “Girl Talk” segment, co-host Adrienne Bailon discussed becoming a stepmom to her fiancé Israel Houghton’s four children.

During the segment, Hougton (who is visiting but is shown off set to the side), shares what the kids call Adrienne (“A”)  and Jeannie Mai asks what the couple would prefer the kids call here.

“If someone were to say, ‘Who is she?’ What do they say?” Bailon asks Hougton who responds, “They would probably say, ‘My dad’s wife.’  Right, something like that?”

Adrienne disagrees with Loni Love‘s suggestion that the kids may tell their friends that Adrienne is their stepmom, because “it sounds mean,” Bailon states.

Tamera Mowry-Housley then asks Hougton would he be okay with Bailon disciplining the children.

According to our past post about 14 tips for making blended family work, our experts suggests, that the biological parent only should discipline his/her children and the stepparent would only discipline based on rules agreed upon and presented to kids as a couple.”

Adrienne is thus correct in her reply when she tells the audience that she has no intention on sending the kids to their room.

“No, I’m not doing that. We are going to be good cop, bad cop and I am the good one, okay!” she tells Houghton who agrees, ” She’s going to be the good cop.”

Another celebrity is publicly sharing plans to freeze her eggs.

Tune in to Tuesday, May 2nd’s edition of The Real. The married but childless show co-host Jeannie Mai will admit that she is thinking about freezing her eggs. The 37-year old had previously decided that she and her husband would not be having children, but Mai realizes that if she changes her mind, it might be too late.

” I know I’m not getting any younger and I know if I was going to have a kid, I should decide now, today, 5 minutes ago,” Mai retorts.

During the show, Tamar Braxton-Herbert chimes in to support. She reminds the audience that she and her husband Vince Herbert had difficulty conceiving and had undergone fertility treatment before welcoming son, Logan, in 2013.

“I went through IVF and I will definitely hold your hand while you go through this process because, you know, you don’t know what to expect,” she says in the video teaser of the show.  “You don’t know what’s happening with your body and there are some changes that’s going to happen with your body, but you just have to know that they’re not permanent changes, okay.”

We previously blogged that Naomi Campbell, Brandy and Sofia Vergara had also publicly shared plans to possibly freeze their eggs.

Tamar Braxton and Tamera Mowry-Housley’s “The Real” returns September 15 ( VIDEO TRAILER)

Sadly, our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Bethenny Frankel lost her FOX channel reality TV show when it didn’t get renewed for a second season.

But on an upside, our other alums Tamar Braxton Herbert and Tamera Mowry-Housley will debut a full season of their new talk show The Real on the same network this September 15.

The new moms and their co-hosts had a successful  short test run in limited and select markets this past summer 2013 (NY, Philly, LA, D.C Phoenix, Houston and Tampa) that was ratings gold. The show got picked up for a full season and will have a nationwide run starting late Summer.

Actress and Singer Adrienne Bailon (The Cheetah Girls),  comedian Loni Love and  TV host Jeannie Mai (How do I Look) round off the other ladies in the multicultural and younger answer to ABC  channel’s The View. 





According  to a press release announcing the premiere date:

These women are all going through varied life experiences, including new motherhood, new marriages, dating or singledom, that relate to every woman’s own trials and tribulations. Unlike other talk shows, each of the five hosts is admittedly a “work in progress” and fearlessly invites the home audience into their lives. Their fresh points of view, youthful energy and passion will turn the traditional talk show on its head. 

Fun! Are you excited about the new show launching? Catch a promo reel hear:
