Amanda Seales Slams ‘The Real’ Following Finale Episode Snub: ‘They Can Absolutely Go Duck Themselves With a Chainsaw’

by Shine My Crown Staff

After years on air, daytime talk show “The Real” has come to an end, and the show is busy promoting the finale. However, former co-host Amanda Seales was left out of the celebrations and took to social media to call out the show for the snub.

She is a part of the show’s history, after all.

“So apparently The Real, in their finale episode, did promo,” says Seales. “I am not featured in this thumbnail and I am not featured in the farewell episode, apparently. I’ll have some things to say about that.”

Seales joined the show’s sixth season in January 2020 alongside Adrienne Bailon, Loni Love, Jeannie Mai and Tamera Mowry-Housley. She announced her exit from the show just six months later.

“My contract is up … and I didn’t renew it because it doesn’t feel good to my soul to be at a place where I cannot speak to my people the way they need to be spoken to,” Seales said at the time.

Seales said that she felt that it was not only her voice that wasn’t being heard… but Black voices in general. The new segment was likely a result of her abrupt departure.

“Yes, I’m saying this on social media because the CONTINUED thievery of black people’s work (even when supported by other BIPOC) needs to be called the F out and also because this is the most energy I’ll give it before going on with my day and creating more dopeness that will inevitably be pilfered by the less talented/ethical/ancestrally connected individuals of our species,” she continued. 

Seales was not the only one to notice she had been excluded from the upcoming finale:

On Twitter, a fan asked:

“Did @amandaseales ask to be left out of the thumbnail? Was her contribution not appreciated?”

“Sure didn’t. But they can absolutely go duck themselves with a chainsaw for doing so,” Seales responded.
