*On Wednesday, April 27, on “The Real,” Hollywood newlyweds Michael Jai White and Gillian White (who both star in the upcoming Never Back Down: Never Surrender) reveal details of their most romantic – and exotic – date. Married a little less than year, Gillian also shares what she’s crossed off her bucket list and shows off her latest finger adornments. Plus, a fashion show featuring fashion rules that are meant to be broken.
Jeannie Mai: Let’s see that ring girl.
Gillian White: Oh yes! [Gillian shows her ring.]
[The Real co-hosts gasp.]
[The Real audience cheers and claps.]
Tamar Braxton: You did good.
Gillian: He did a good job! He did good!
Jeannie: High five on that. [Jeannie and Michael Jai White high five.]
Michael Jai White: Thank you.
Jeannie: Okay, so what’s the most romantic thing that Michael has ever done for you?
Gillian: Okay, let’s see. Well a couple years ago, he was shooting a film in Thailand again and I always had on my bucket list, I wanted to ride elephants in the jungle not just you know, just at a zoo or something. So I flew out there and he surprised me by…
Gillian: Imma let him finish ‘cause he tells it better.
Michael: Well, yeah I wanted to keep it a surprise, right. So we flew up to northern Thailand, she didn’t know what was going on. There was a truck that picked us up from this place called Anantara which is like a elephant reserve, right. So I wanted to keep it secret and the driver is asking us “Is this your first time?” And I’m like “Nope, don’t say anything.” And so you know, we’re riding up there, it takes about an hour and they had these complimentary cookies in a tin thing and I open the thing up and there’s a bunch of elephant cookies.
The Real co-hosts: Oh my God!
Michael: So I’m like “we can’t have that.” So um I’m distracting her while I’m biting off the elephant head right?
