Avid viewers of “The Real” know that the women do not hold back when it comes to giving their opinions on heated topics.

The latest news from Sesame Street had a lot of people debating.

A writer from the popular kid’s show claimed that he wrote Bert and Ernie as two gay men in a monogamous relationship.

This has been something many have suspected for many years.

Hours later, the creator of Bert, Frank Oz, shot down the story. He claimed on Twitter that he did not create Bert to be gay. Oz also claimed that Bert and Ernie are only best friends.

Oz’s comments received mixed reactions.

Many from the gay community were offended, suggesting Oz’s comments indicate that being gay is a bad thing.

But Oz insists that was not the point he was making.

Recently, on “The Real,” the ladies discussed the hot topic.

Tamera Mowry said that she feels like a kid’s show should stick to teaching children how to read, write and count only. When Jeannie Mai chimed in with a different perspective, things got really tense. She rolled her eyes at Jeannie and when Jeannie told her, “Let me finish,” Tamera made it clear she felt disrespected.

This led to many viewers of the daytime talk show complaining about Tamera’s actions.

But she didn’t shy away from the criticism, and she confirmed that she did indeed apologize to Jeannie.

Things appear to be good again with Tamera and Jeannie as both walked out on today’s show arm in arm.

    All of them have been testy and doing too much this season. I guess they want to be more controversial so they can increase ratings.

    Tamera is clearly on edge because her damage control for Adam backfired. She was trying to defend him but he got dragged instead. So she came to work with an attitude the next day. I’m glad she apologized, but she needs to get her emotions in check. If comments on social media are bothering her, she should stop reading them.

      This all day. She was still upset about the Adam stuff. She’s going to have to just accept that there are people who feel he’s racist for multiple reasons. Working for Fox News just wasn’t a good look because that’s the most racist station there is.

    I think Tamera is a republican so she has the same views as Adam.

    She was on 100 for no reason. I know the comments about Adam are getting to her but she needs to get it together.

    Well this show was created to be the urban The View so it makes sense for them to get catty over political topics. It keeps people tuning in.

    I think this is the real Tamera. She’s very conservative and gets mad when someone doesn’t agree with her. A lot like the conservatives at Fox News where Adam used to work at.

    Hi each of these ladies are entitle to their own opinion. I never thought of Bernie and Ernie as gay. I could be wrong but because of the times we are living in things can be misconstrued. I hope Tia and Jennie remain best of friends.

    Jeannie projected onto Tamara’s children how SHE felt regarding whether the puppets should be publicly known as a gay couple when saying “they do care and your kids are learning.” You can’t tell me about MY children then expect me not to interject as if what you’re saying is the unequivocal truth according to your lived experience. Jeannie attempted to infer that since she was able to learn the English language at such a young age, which had absolutely nothing to do with if the Burt & Ernie were “gay, children could learn of diverse orientations simply through observation. As Tamera said, the puppets can be anything but Jeannie was presumptuous at best & attempted to correct Tam on what/how her kids view them so Tan’s defensiveness to that specifically was only natural. Moreover, Jeanie came off as a “know it all” & her “let me finish”, in this instance, was rude so Tamera’s reaction afterwards was a direct result of what transpired, in my opinion. Now let’s be honest here…if an adult isn’t making it a pivotal point to have their child view the sexual orientation of the puppets as gay, are we to really believe that children say “I want to watch Sesame Street because I have two dads/moms & Burt & Ernie are gay just like them!” Sure, Jan, sure.
