WATCH: Adrienne Bailon Recalls Being Sexually Harassed as a Teen

It's often trying being a woman. We have to worry about whether or not we might be raped on our way home. We have to beg for people to believe us when we say a man tried to sexually assault us. We have to fight to be deemed as worthy in male-dominated industries and then when we get there, we often have to worry about the harassment that can come along with it.

This is something that certainly reigned true for Adrienne Bailon, who got her start in the music industry as a young teen. On The Real earlier this week, the 32-year-old opened up about experiencing sexual harassment at the hands of a music exec. "I even experienced an executive that would kiss me on the lips,” Bailon said. “It consistently happened to the point where I was like, ‘This ain’t cool, man. Now he knows I’m not going to say anything.’ Which is not okay.”

The Puerto Rican and Ecuadorian co-host explained that she didn't think it was anything at first and even thought the intitial kiss was an accident, until it kept happening. “Obviously that happened then, I would never allow that to happen now. But a lot of women are in fear,” she explained. “Fear has a big part to do with it. And two, these men are usually...”

“Famous,” her co-host, Jeannie Mai, jumped in to say.

The Real is heavily stressing the importance of standing up to sexual harassment. Bailon is encouraging victims to unite and not be embarrassed to speak out, and Tamera Mowry-Housley wants to remind women to be “brave” and “set boundaries.” Loni Love and Mai said that it's important to remember that both women and men get harassed, and fashion and style should not be misinterpreted as an invitation for advances.
