Loni Love has defended the new co-host of The Real, Amanda Seales, after Twitter dragged her for her mean facial expressions last week after Love cried on-air about Black women not knowing how to eat healthily in the hood.

Speaking to Madame Noire, Love said the following:

"She personally called me, and she was like, 'Yoo…you were talking and the next minute you started crying,'" Love explained. "And it's like, 'Girl, that's what we do on the show.'"

"It caught her off guard, and that's why you see the reaction that she had," Love continued. "She was like, 'Do you want to do an [Instagram Live to clear this up]?' I said, 'No, Amanda, this is a show. This is "The Real," and this is what we do.' And like I said, she didn't have time to come back and go, 'Loni?' We just had to get out. So, it is what it is."
