You can always count on Adrienne to keep it real!
Throughout her seven seasons on “The Real,” Ms. Houghton has poured her heart out, sparing no details about her personal and professional life.
From announcing her engagement (and then marriage) to husband Israel to revealing she was the Flamingo on “The Masked Singer,” Ade has dropped some major news at the Girl Chat table!
In honor of her birthday, here are Adrienne’s biggest bombshells!
Adrienne’s Engagement and Wedding to Israel!
In 2016, Adrienne Bailon became Adrienne Houghton!
A month after they announced their engagement on Instagram, Ade and Israel appeared on Girl Chat, where they spilled deets about their romantic Parisian proposal.
After Israel surprised Ade by bringing her mom Nilda and stepdad Joe to the City of Lights, they enjoyed a beautiful dinner on a private yacht. Right as their boat is near the Eiffel Tower, Israel hands Ade white rose petals — under the guise of a super cool Instagram pic. However, when Ade throws the petals and turns around, she sees Israel on bended knee!
Months later, the couple returned to France and tied the knot November 11, 2016, at the Hotel Plaza Athénée.
“I genuinely just feel so blessed and grateful. I’ve honestly never been happier in my entire life,” Adrienne told People after her nuptials. “I’ve never felt what I feel right now. I can’t even describe what it is, but it’s such a peace mixed with total excitement.”
Truly a fairy-tale romance!

Adrienne Addresses THAT Rumor About Her Relationship with Rob Kardashian!

In a September 2016 Girl Chat, Ade dispelled a rumor about her ex-boyfriend Rob Kardashian, who at the time was expecting his daughter Dream with then-girlfriend Blac Chyna.

“I absolutely never cheated on Rob, and I just want to clarify that,” she exclaimed.

Adrienne Gets Real About Her Music Career
In 2015, Adrienne — who has been in a number of successful girl groups, including 3LW — got emotional when discussing her music career.
When asked why she was not making new music, she answered through tears, “I don’t like the sound of my own voice.”
“I’m scared to fail,” she said, adding, “And it’s honest.”
Though she got a record deal with Def Jam after The Cheetah Girls, Adrienne revealed, “It didn’t go the way I thought it was gonna go. There was so much more to music than just what I love about music.”
“I’m scared,” she continued. “What if people don’t like it? What if it’s not successful?”
Little did Adrienne know, four years later…
Adrienne’s ‘Masked Singer’ Reveal!
Adrienne was a finalist on Season 2 of “The Masked Singer”!
After much speculation, Ade finally confirmed she was the Flamingo and placed third in the singing competition.
Not only was it “one of the most incredible experiences” of Ade’s entire life, she “can’t believe that people like my voice.”
Happy birthday, Adrienne, and cheers to many more!
