Loni Love looks like she can get her boyfriend James Welsh to do just about anything.
During an exclusive clip for the latest “Celebrity Game Face,” the comedian competes on the game show by watching clips of TikTok dances while attempting to coach her beau into imitating them. The catch? James can’t see what Loni is witnessing.
As soon as host Kevin Hart gives the count down, Loni begins describing the first viral boogie being performed by a young TikTok user.
“Um, fly like an eagle,” she tells James, as he begins to flap his arms. “Fly like a ballerina! Fly! Fly free, you’re free!”
“His name is James. We met online. He’s a wonderful man,” “The Real” co-host Loni Love, 48, tells Rach and co-host Nate Berkus. “We just really, really get along. To be an older woman and to find love — that’s what I talk about in my book [I Tried To Change So You Don’t Have To], that it’s never too late to find love.”
ET’s Deidre Behar spoke with Loni Love and her boyfriend, actor James Welsh, via video chat as they self-isolate together at home amid the coronavirus pandemic. The couple spoke candidly about living together for the first time, what they’ve taught each other and how they’re keeping their romance alive. Loni also shared the skills she’s been honing during her time at home, including cooking and braiding her own hair. Also keeping her busy, her work as a co-host on ‘The Real.’ Loni gushed over her co-host Jeannie Mai’s recent engagement to Jeezy, shared what it’s like filming the talk show from home and even showed off a new role: sound control operator! Loni’s book, ‘I Tried To Change So You Don’t Have To: True Life Lessons,’ is out June 23.
(Los Angeles, CA) – Last Friday, people were on edge to see who would compete on the second episode of RuPaul’s Secret Celebrity Drag Race.
Cameras panned the stage and a voiceover read, “I’m a comedian, author and talk show host. I have no experience with drag…at all.” As curious viewers wondered, in walks the one and only Loni Love!
The award-winning comedienne started by acknowledging that Drag Race represents confidence. This boldness wasn’t specific to any size, skin tone or race. As a talk show host, Love wanted to go outside of her boundaries, be someone different for a moment and have a good time!
Joined by celebrity competitors actress and former Miss America Vanessa Williams and reality star Tami Roman, Love knew for a fact the competition was about to get real.
The ladies were very excited about the opportunity to reveal who they were throughout their drag race experience. The series challenges RuPaul’s Drag Race fan favorites to give all their A-listers drag makeovers for a chance to win $30,000 for a charity of their choice.
Immediately, Love was tasked, along with Williams and Roman, to create a mocha man look on her own. Before you knew it, the ladies were snatching wigs!
It’s business as usual for Loni Love. Since she’s been self-isolating due to the coronavirus, the Real cohost, 48, is sticking to her everyday routine more or less. The only difference? She’s just doing it all at home!
The first thing on Love’s agenda is giving her skin some TLC. At 7 a.m., she puts on a sheet mask for 20 minutes. “It allows to me relax a minute and think about the day, and meditate, and be grateful for some things,” she says exclusively in the new issue of Us Weekly.
