Loni Love is ready to bring some fresh faces to The Real — and she already has a few names in mind.

Love has revealed her potential picks to join the daytime talk show, which she currently co-hosts with Jeannie Mai, Adrienne Houghton and Garcelle Beauvais. She suggested Keke Palmer, 27, and Raven-Symoné, 35, for the job.

"Keke is always working. That's why we can't get Keke. If we could ever lock her down ... She's that young, fresh, fierce, fearless girl that we really, really love," Love, 49, told Entertainment Tonight. "The viewers love when she comes on. I love when she comes on, too. Keke, when you get unemployed, call us."

As for Raven-Symoné, Love said seeing her reunite with her former Cheetah Girls costar would be fun to watch.

"Oh my gosh, two seasons ago we had Raven come on and it was just so magical seeing her and Adrienne," Love said. "I would love that. She's such a fearless person. Plus the Disney stories?! I would love it."

Raven-Symoné hinted at the possibility of returning to her talk show days and joining The Real last year after the departure of former hosts Tamera Mowry-Housley and Amanda Seales.

"There's always conversations to be had," she said. "But I'm gonna stay true to what I've been setting goals towards during [the COVID-19 pandemic], and that's to focus on my skills as a director and EP and a creator, and really take what I've learned in the industry and pass it along to people that are beginning."

No matter who joins the show, Love told Entertainment Tonight she's excited to bring some new perspectives to the table, saying, "New people always keep the conversation fresh."
