I think I speak for Sister Sister — and Tia and Tamera — fans everywhere when I say seeing the Mowry twins on the cover of Essence magazine is such a happy moment. For one, we are more than impressed with the way Essence has been switching up their covers this year (kudos!), two, we’re tired of seeing the same run of the mill celebs, and three, who doesn’t love these twin mommies?!
For the April 2013 issue, Essence is talking with the sisters about being “Moms in Charge.” We all know Tia’s been handling her business since becoming a mom to son Cree in June 20011. On her Style Network reality show with Tamera, we watched Tia get back in stellar physical shape for The Game, and then we watched her walk away from the BET show in order to pursue even bigger and better things. Now we’re just starting to catch up with Tamera and see how mommyhood is treating her ever since she gave birth to her son Aiden in November.
As Essence puts it in their feature, “Double Vision:”
Life is sweet for twins for Tia & Tamera Mowry. As successful, married new moms, the reality TV stars are adding a new hyphenate to their resumes: entrepreneur. The two recently launched a product line for mothers and babies called Mama Need. ESSENCE gets the scoop on how they do it all, with a smile.
For Tia, she says the smiling part is pretty natural and what you see on their reality show, Tia and Tamera, is exactly how they are in real life.
“We didn’t want to do a reality show if we couldn’t be real—if I couldn’t be myself. There is no ‘evil twin’ syndrome, though we do have evil moments…”
And that’s why we love them!
