The news comes after the death of Mowry’s close friend and former Glee star, Naya Rivera.

“I had NO intention to talk about this today, especially in light of the news of my dear friend Naya, but now some reports are coming out, and I’d rather you hear it from me first,” Mowry said in an Instagram post.

The Real premiered on July 15, 2013, with Mowry serving as an original co-host, alongside, Loni Love, Jeannie Mai, Adrienne Bailon, and Tamar Braxton.

The former Sister, Sister star, becomes the third person to depart the show. Braxton announced her departure from the daytime talk show on May 22, 2016, stating that she wanted to concentrate on her music career.

Tamar’s seat would remain empty, being filled with guest celebrities, until 2019, when the show announced that Amanda Seales would become the show’s newest co-host.

The news was short-lived with Seales announcing her departure after just one season.

“I’m not in a space where I can, as a full Black woman, have my voice and my coworkers 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 in an Instagram Live interview.
