RAY J TO REPLACE TAMAR BRAXTON AS PERMANENT ‘FIFTH’ HOST ON ‘THE REAL’?

By: Ny MaGee

Ray J announced on his Instagram today that he has joined “The Real” as the NEW permanent “fifth” host — replacing loudmouth Tamar Braxton and her bad attitude.

Sharing a group photo of himself with the ladies of “The Real,” Tamera Mowry-Housley, Adrienne Bailon, Loni Love, and Jeannie Mai, the “I Hit It First” singer captioned the pic, “Looks like a got a new job!!! Stay tuned!! #TheRealwithRayJ #telepictures#DaytimeTV“.

Peep his IG post below.

Many fans were left shaken by the news. One Instagram user responded with “I don’t (think) a guy should be the one to be the 5th person, it needs to be a girl sorry.”

Another said, “Ray J becoming a co-host on The Real makes no sense to me.”

Others took to Twitter wondering if Ray J is simply “auditioning” for a permeant spot on the daytime talk show. 

“I’m hoping #RayJ is just a guest host,” a Twitter user wrote. “I can’t see him on there permanently.”

But as it turns out, Ray J was pulling a fast one. “The Real” co-hosts have confirmed that it’s not true — he ain’t joining their team. Ray simply posted the photo above for fun.

Wishful thinking, perhaps.

In related news, Ray J and his lovely wife Princess Love are expecting their first child together.

When Ray appeared on “The Real” recently, he revealed that his lady-love is pregnant. But after the announcement, a bunch of folks on social media were calling BS, TMZ reports. 

Ray’s “Love & Hip Hop” co-star Moniece Slaughter fueled the naysayers by claiming that his sister Brandy is their surrogate.

Slaughter wrote on social media, “Yes. Brandy is carrying the baby for them. Her hormones must be raging because aside from her already being off her rocker, she’s losing her mind. Send my mom one more text that you claim you sent to me and I guess it’s a fair fade since she’s always publicly denying her pregnancy.”

But Princess Love fired back at the foolishness by posting a video of her sonogram.

Meanwhile, as we previously reported, Ray J’s Raytroniks (now officially known as Raycon) is getting a makeover, starting with a $31 million distribution deal with New York City-based leading distributor of consumer electronics, Cowboy Wholesale.
