"On edge" is probably how most viewers would describe their reaction after watching the season 2 finale; and how two lead characters literally wrapped up the season during the mysterious balcony scene that left fans wondering "who was pushed over the edge?'

Rhonda (Kaitlin Doubleday) confronted and physically attacked Anika (Grace Gealey) on a balcony that ultimately led to someone falling over the railing, as recapped by Entertainment Weekly.

"Who fell off the balcony" is what most viewers, including co-host Tamera Mowry-Housley, wanted answered but Gray wasn't for it and instead jokingly answered "my teddy bear."

Gray, also known as Yazz The Great, did provide some season 3 spoilers for The Real co-hosts and audience, guaranteeing the new season will be their "best work."

"It's gonna be hot - the music, the drama, the fashion," revealed Gray.

He also revealed a new cast member that has joined the ranks of he; Emmy-nominated Taraji P. Henson, Terrance Howard, Trai Byers and Jussie Smollett, for season 3.

Daddy's Little Girls actress Sierra McClain has been added in a recurring role as Nessa, a singer that Lucious (Howard) hopes to sign to his label.

Empire's Hakeem is not the only character Gray gets to portray in a music series but he'll play the role of Bivins, from the group New Edition, in their forthcoming BET biopic.

Bivins, who was also a part of the New Edition-branched-trio, Bell Biv DeVoe, performed many choreographed dance routines during his time with both groups and they have become legendary to fans.

In a Tweet shared by the talk show, Gray decided to show and prove his skils to The Real audience that he too could execute those legendary moves for the upcoming biopic.
