Tatyana Ali FINALLY had her day in court after suing Warner Brothers and Telepictures for stealing her concept for “The Real” talkshow. Here’s what the judge had to say.

Tatyana Ali pitched the idea to them back in 2012, and she described an “informal” talk show setting with relatively young celebrity hosts and a young (20-30s) target market. The goal was to use a racially diverse set of hosts to reach a younger market than that targeted by other talkshows like The View and The Talk.

So she was understandably insulted when she saw this idea come to life when The Real premiered in 2013. And although she actually appeared on the show as a guest, she was set on getting her just due. Watch to find out what happened in court.
