Earlier this month Instant Mom actress celebrated five years of marital bliss with hubby Cory Hardrict in front of family and friends during an intimate vow renewal ceremony. Seemingly still in celebration mode, the Hollywood beauty took to the blog shares with twin sister Tamera, Tia and Tamera Official, to discuss why she and Cory decided to renew their vows after only five years of marriage, share photos from their dating years and reveal how they keep their love alive after being together for thirteen years.
Turn the page for throwback photos of the lovebirds and Tia’s tips for romantic bliss.
There are some actresses (i.e,. Halle Berry, Thandie Newton, Kerry Washington) who get all of the glory, and there are some that don’t get nearly as much recognition. Phenomenal acting abilities have gone with a lack of praise while mediocre performances by non-black women are seen as unparalleled (even when they’re just okay…). You can Google lists of top black actresses, and find that while those women are great at what they do, a great deal of them haven’t even had a leading role in years (if at all). Maybe they’ve decided to take a break from acting, or maybe they are just struggling to grab those big roles, but it’s about time that Hollywood is reminded that there are strong black actresses in Hollywood, and these women need to have their faces back in somebody’s movie sooner than later.
In a sea of failed reality TV marriages, isn’t it refreshing to see a couple still going strong and even rededicating themselves to each other in the entertainment industry? That’s what Tia Mowry and her hubby Cory Hardirict did in Malibu this weekend when they renewed their vows in front of about 20 people in a private ceremony in Malibu this weekend.
Tia and Cory first jumped the broom nearly five years ago on April 20, 2008. A little over three years later, they welcomed their first son, Cree, who will turn 2 years old on June 28, and this time around he was able to be a part of the festivities. An eyewitness told E! online:
“Cory was holding their son, Cree, as he walked down the aisle. Tia was wearing a white dress with cutouts on the sides and had on a sparkly headband. She looked very pretty.”
Tia even told Us Weekly Cree was the reason the pair decided to walk down the aisle again.
“Cree was my motivation and inspiration to renew our vows,” she said. ”Cory and I have been together for 13 years and married for five. However, we now have this new miracle in our lives and I wanted to celebrate our love, and what our love together created — Cree!”
Tia’s twin Tamera and her own little bundle, 5-month-old Aden, came out to celebrate her sister’s vow renewal with her husband Adam. And Celebrity event planner Mindy Weiss was another one of the guests who posted the pic above with the caption “I dos.”
From the looks of things, Tia and her hubby have been having a great anniversary weekend. She tweeted another pic of her and Cory sharing “me-time” at the Lakers game.

I guess the trolls will never learn that when it comes to coming for people on the internet, their children, even if they are the children of celebrities, should be off limits. Unfortunately, the desire to be seen, to elicit a reaction is stronger than the desire to show even a modicum of human decency. Like her sister before her, Tamera Mowry, is the latest celebrity enduring criticism of her new baby boy, Aden. “Fans” and critics (read: Trolls) of Tamera have recently made some rude and disrespectful comments regarding her interracial marriage to Fox News correspondent, Adam Housley. And now that the couple have expanded their family, these same people are now insulting her son by questioning (?) his skin color.
On the blog that she and twin sister Tia created, Tia and Tamera Official, Tamera decided that instead of addressing the critics, she’d respond to the people who left comments of support and encouragement.
Here’s what she had to say:
Tia and I have always known we have amazing fans, but reading all your messages and comments on this blog make it even clearer. When people say ignorant things about Aden’s race or my marriage with his daddy Adam, it’s easy for me to take it personally – even after all this time, my skin isn’t that thick!
But hearing your stories about your own beautiful, mixed race babies and the love you have for their fathers grounds me back to reality and reminds me of the truth: Skin color has NOTHING to do with love. How Aden looks or grows up to look like – whether he looks more “white” or more “black” – doesn’t matter to me. Why should it? He’s my precious baby boy and my only job is to be the best mommy I can be to him while showing him both sides of his heritage. All I want for him to believe is that love knows no boundaries.
Way to keep it classy and Tamera.
‘Having Nephews Is The Best Birth Control:’ Tahj Mowry Says He Won’t Be About That Baby Life Anytime Soon
The lovely ladies over at Sister 2 Sister recently caught up with one of Hollywood’s favorite little brothers, Tahj Mowry, just as he made his way down the red carpet at the ESSENCE Black Women In Music Event. When asked how seeing his sisters with his nephews has impacted his own desire for children, he gave a hilariously truthful response.
“Well, the marriage will definitely come before the baby, not just because that’s the way I want to do it. But, because my mom will beat my a**… I’m in no rush. I’m taking the steps. I got a girlfriend, so that’s good. I always joke with people that having nephews is the best birth control there is. And you know, the show I’m on, we have babies as well. So I’m constantly surrounded by babies and I do not want my own right now.”
“There’s something so great about playing with your nephew and then like, when you’re tired, you like hand him off back to your sister. ‘Here you go, mom!’ But. I’m a great uncle. I spoil them like crazy. I love being an uncle,” Tahj said.
I suppose he has his baby guru, parenting-advice slanging older sisters, Tia and Tamera, who each gave birth to baby boys within the past two years, to thank for that. Tahj’s response is humorous but, true. He seems to have a really good head on his shoulders. In case you’ve been wondering what he’s been up to, he currently has a role in the ABC Family sitcom, Baby Daddy. It’s so hard to believe that he’s the same little boy from 90′s sitcom, Smart Guy. He’s grown up nicely.
Check out the video of Tahj’s hilarious interview on the next page. What do you think of his response?
‘Oh Hell, I’m Not A Gymnast. I Can’t Do That!’ Tia Mowry Talks Brown-Girl Yoga, Getting Her Body Back, And Being An Auntie
We grew up adoring cuties Tia and Tamera Mowry with their fun ’90s style and sisterly antics on the hit comedy, Sister, Sister. And now, they’ve invited us on their journey through motherhood with their new lifestyle site, TiaAndTameraOfficial.com, which is just as popular as their hit reality TV show, Tia & Tamera on Style. They’ve created an interactive community to reach out directly to their fans, as they share lifestyle tips, beauty and fashion picks, and of course photos of those adorable babies, Cree and Aden!
We recently got to chat with Tia, and she is one busy mama! She filled us in about her new yoga DVD series, Calm Yoga and Core Yoga with Tara Stiles, and tips on how the fit mom keeps herself looking so great post- baby. Of course, she dished on her “twindividual style” and that super sweet pixie cut we love.
Check out the interview on StyleBlazer.com.
You might not have known that this was “a thing,” but apparently there are increased health benefits, including better breast milk production, from ingesting your placenta after you give birth. So maybe that’s why Tamera had the hospital preserve hers after she had her son Aden.
But as you know, these two share everything. Just like Tia made Tamera taste her breast milk, shortly after Cree was born, Tamera pushed her placenta on Tia. Naturally, it was a bit of a harder sell but mixing it with brandy was the key to get Tia to swallow.
On StyleNetwork’s site, this is what Tia had to say about the whole ordeal.
Tasting Tamera’s encapsulated placenta was very interesting! If you think about it too much, you’re not going to like it, because all you’re going to think about is that you’re consuming placenta. But I was really, really surprised that it tasted pretty good mixed with a little bit of alcohol. It was definitely Tamera paying me back for making her taste my breast milk. I tasted my own breast milk and I still think my breast milk was sweeter than Tamera’s placenta!
If you had a sister, would you taste her placenta? Why or why not?
Not often do we get to see celebrities grow, mature, and blossom right before our eyes. But, some celebs became stars at a young age and we’ve been able to watch them become even bigger successes. Here are 14 black childhood stars then and now!
Somewhere off in cyber world the celebrity stan and the cyber bully got busy and had a baby. What they gave birth to took on the persistent and stalker-like characteristics of the die-hard stan and the relentless aggressiveness and cruelness of the cyber bully. Their offspring is known as the celebrity antagonist. The celebrity antagonist is the new and improved cyber bully who strictly targets those with fame. Their weapons of choice are normally social networking platforms such as Twitter, Instagram and Facebook; however, in recent news they’ve become a little more crafty and have even begun branching out to platforms such as Change.org so that they can also start mean-spirited petitions against celebrities as well. It is through these social networking platforms that these lunatics publicly taunt and harass their celeb of choice.
Now, I’ll admit I have gotten a chuckle or two in the past from seeing smart or comedic remarks directed at certain celebs that have come across my Twitter timeline, but there are some people who are downright cruel. The most recent hateful act was targeted towards actress Tia Mowry – Hardrict and her one-year old son Cree. Going out of your way to publicly verbally abuse a new mother by attacking her innocent child and calling him ugly is absolutely ridiculous. Another similar situation that comes to mind is when a photo surfaced of Dream Hampton’s teen daughter with Beyonce prior to one of her concerts. Twitter and Tumblr users wasted no time taking shots at the young girl’s appearance. “These are early 20 something Beyonce stans coming for my teenager,” Hampton tweeted in disbelief before disabling her Twitter and Tumblr accounts. What makes this so much worse is that they were attacking a teen girl who is old enough to comprehend what was being said about her. Being a person who knows what it is like to struggle with self-esteem issues, I found this to be absolutely horrible.
The funny thing is that cyber bullying has no loyalty, no one is safe. Well known bullies can catch it as well. Right now the queen bully, Evelyn Lozada seems to be getting a taste of her own antagonistic medicine as a direct result of her recent domestic dispute with soon to be ex-hubby Chad Ochocino. Her Twitter mentions have been overflowing with derogatory tweets ever since the news of her falling out with Chad made headlines. Eric Williams, ex-hubby of Ev’s ex-bff even seems to have joined in on the playground-like taunting by tweeting Evelyn about them having head knots in common now(If you guys recall the season before last Ev frequently joked Eric’s protruding head knot). Many feel that she deserves exactly what she’s getting. I am certainly not an Evelyn fan but I personally feel that bullying is not cool no matter who does it or who it is being done to. I also feel that taunting someone during their time of distress is outright cruel.
Let us not forget about malevolent petition that was put in motion to get Ciara to stop making music. There is nothing that can ever stop an artist from putting out music unless they no longer possess the physical ability to do it anymore. That only goes to show that the petition was created for no other reason than to intentionally disgrace and hurt the feelings of another person. Celebrities are nothing but well known people. They bleed like us. They feel like us. They cry like us. They hurt like us. The behavior exhibited towards them on social networks is disgusting. What can possibly be gained from hiding behind an internet persona and intentionally insulting people that you don’t even know? I understand that it is easy to get caught up in the whole mob mentality thing. I understand that there is a disconnect because we don’t personally know these people, but where is our morality as a culture?

Is it ever appropriate to call someone’s baby “ugly”? I’m going to go with NO, but apparently that memo hasn’t reached the masses and Tia Mowry is the latest celebrity mama to deal with insults hurled at her child.
Tia hasn’t been shy about showing her son, Cree Hardrict, off to the world. The one-year-old has appeared on his famous mom’s reality show “Tia & Tamera” as well as been photographed with his mom on several occasions. Tia is a proud mother who loves to show off her baby. She posts her own pictures on social media networks and the paparazzi also snags shots at every chance they get. Some of those pictures are posted online and have drawn some nasty comments.
If you’ve been hanging around the comment section on various web pages you may have heard harsh words uttered [about Tia Mowry's baby].
“Wow that baby is ugly. What the hell happened,” turned up on one site. “Both parents are attractive. I just don’t get it.”
“You know I’m right, that baby is ugly,” wrote another commenter on [one site] responding to those who insisted otherwise. “That’s why you’re all hyped up about it. Say what you want and don’t act like ugly babies don’t exist. It is what it is. Don’t be at mad me. And just b/c I said the baby was ugly, it doesn’t mean he’ll always be that way. Who knows, maybe the kid will eventually grow into his head.”
Those comments didn’t go unnoticed by Tia herself and she responded on her Facebook page: “It’s disgusting that some focus on looks. I brought a beautiful child into this world.”
She’s right that is disgusting. Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon. When Beyonce finally unwrapped her seventh-month old baby while out on a shopping trip, negative comments abounded. Though it’s highly likely that Beyonce heard about the vitriol directed toward her baby, she didn’t respond. She did, however, refrain from showing Blue Ivy’s face in the family photos she recently posted on Tumblr. Whether that was coincidence or her passive response to criticism is unclear considering that the picture circulated a few weeks ago was a paparazzi photo and not one she published on her own.
Of course, Tia and Beyonce aren’t the only mothers who have had to deal with “your baby is ugly” comments. Other mothers, both celebrities and non have also been blindsided by hateful insults from unscrupulous people.
Some would say that these moms shouldn’t put their babies out there to be criticized for their looks, but I would say that no one should be criticizing a baby’s looks anyway. If there is ever a time when “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all” applies, it’s when it comes to someone’s baby — even when that “someone” is a celebrity and thus you feel entitled to critique every aspect of her life.
It’s not about taking sides on whether or not you believe that “every baby is cute” either. Who cares? Sometimes we don’t need to “keep it real” or “just be honest” because the real, honest truth is, no one should have the audacity to negatively comment on a baby’s looks — out loud or online.
