20 Jul Tamera Mowry-Housley Departing “The Real”
Tamera Mowry-Housley announced a big change in her life and her show The Real. The former Sister, Sister star turned talk show co-host, revealed that she will not be returning to her daytime chat show. She didn’t want to make her announcement during the tragic news of Naya Rivera’s drowning. But, she was starting to see reports and wanted to break the news to fans directly.
In Her Words
Mowry-Housley shared the news on her Instagram, “For seven years, my home and heart has been at The Real. The friendships that I’ve made there will last a lifetime, and the people that I’ve had the blessing to interview have changed my life for the better. I’m so proud of what all the ladies and I have accomplished there, including two well-deserved NAACP Image Awards and a Daytime Emmy. However, all good things must come to an end, and it’s with a bittersweet smile that I announce that I am moving on from The Real.”
She continued, “To my fellow hosts, I love you, I will miss you, and I will always be there for you. Thank you for teaching me, supporting me, and loving all of me. Sisters forever. I’ll be rooting for you, as I look forward to spending more time with my family, pursuing amazing new opportunities, and embarking on the next chapter of my life.”
Mowry-Housley was one of the The Real’s original co-hosts. The remaining co-hosts are Jeannie Mai, Adrienne Houghton, and Loni Love. The news of her exit comes after new co-host Amanda Seales’ departure in June. When Seales was able to have real talk in an Instagram live about her time on The Real, she claimed, “It doesn’t feel good to my soul to be at a place where I cannot speak to my people the way they need to be spoken to.” The producers of The Real have said publicly that there are no hard feelings with Mowry-Housley and they welcome working with her on future projects.
But, if fans are concerned that this may be the end of The Real, they can rest assured that the show is picked-up through 2022.
