WATCH: The Real Rings in 1000 Episodes with Ellen DeGeneres!

Publish date:

Congrats are in order for The Real! The talk show celebrated its one thousandth episode on Monday, Feb. 18, with the help of a very special guest: Ellen DeGeneres!

Adrienne Bailon Houghton expressed gratitude for the show's fans, reflecting, per People:

We really are the show that people doubted for a really long time. They never thought that a show like ours, that represents women of color and women in general, would make it to the 1000th episode.

DeGeneres popped in and praised the ladies for their hard work:

It’s hard to have a talk show work and last. And number one, it’s about the chemistry, it’s about the content, it’s about what you bring the people, and y’all have that.

Loni Love gave a shout-out to a former co-host, per OK!:

We also want to say something. I want to say: Tamar Braxton, you are still our sister. This is your 1,000th episode too.

Talk show queen Oprah Winfrey also delivered a special message for The Real.
