It was not a voluntary exit for this daytime host, no matter how much they would like to portray it as such.
Amanda Seales Is Leaving ‘The Real’: ‘It Doesn’t Feel Good To My Soul”
Amanda Seales is saying farewell to daytime talk show The Real.
“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 during an Instagram Live earlier this week. “And where the people who are speaking to me in disparaging ways are not being handled,” she added.
Sources tell Deadline she was offered a new deal, but declined to stay.
“I’m not in a space where I can, as a full black woman, 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,” Seales said.- Source
