Twins Tia Mowry-Hardrict and Tamera Mowry-Housley cover the May 2014 issue of EBONY Magazine. The ladies discuss their careers, growing up in the public eye, and the public indignity of defending Tamera’s interracial marriage.
The twins have achieved success in all facets of their lives, but everything did not go their way after their popular series Sister, Sister ended.
“After Sister, Sister ended, nobody was calling,” says Tia. “My sister and I were sick and tired of being sick and tired of sitting back and waiting for those phone calls.” Deciding at that point they were going to take control of their future, Tia added, “We had the mentality, ‘We’re not going to depend on anybody anymore, we’re not going to let someone else’s value of us diminish how we value ourselves, and we’re going to put action in place.’ We put our minds together and executed [our plans].”
Tamera also opened up to EBONY magazine about the emotional upheaval she endured when fans questioned her interracial marriage with FOX news correspondent, Adam Housley.
“Honestly, growing up, I [just] knew I was going to marry a Black man,” said Tamera. “But, as I grew up, I learned to just be open,” she added. “I just wanted to be with someone who was confident around me and who I felt comfortable being myself with.”
