AceShowbiz - Amanda Seales made a huge announcement during a new Instagram Live session. The TV personality revealed to her online followers that she had decided to depart from "The Real" six months after she joined the show as a new co-host.
"Well you know what happened to me today -- I have arrived because my contract is up at 'The Real' and I didn't renew it, because it doesn't feel good to my soul to be at a place where I can not, speak to my people the way they need to be spoken to. And where the people that are speaking to me in despairing ways are not being handled," she explained on Tuesday, June 2.
She went on saying, "I'm not at a space where as a full black woman I can have my voice and my co-workers also have their voices and where the people at the top are not respecting the necessity for black voices to be at the top too."
Despite her exit, it seems like things are okay between her and her former co-hosts, including Jeannie Mai, Tamera Mowry and Adrienne Bailon, as she's still following them on Instagram. However, Amanda and Loni Love are not following each other on the photo-sharing platform.
Instead of being sad over her decision, fans were physched that Amanda exited the morning talk show and put herself above anything. "I'm so proud of @amandaseales for protecting here peace of mind and continuing to do her best to represent us in the most truthful light! I strive to have that level of integrity in my life," a fan applauded her on Twitter.
Another fan commented, "Who's surprised she left,I'm not. The Real is too watered down for Amanda Seales.She was too real for the Real." Meanwhile, someone else noted, "People dislike @amandaseales because she speaks [the] truth and that makes people uncomfortable."
Her exit marks the second time for a co-host to leave the show after Tamar Braxton. Meanwhile, Amanda's former co-hosts have yet to break silence on her departure.
