It can be hard to see our parents as full human beings. After all, for so long they’ve been in service to us for decades, that it can be hard to recognize the fact that they were here before us and, in an ideal world, should have lives of their own.
But that’s now how things go. Recently on “The Real,” Tamera shared that her parents, Darlene and Timothy Mowry are divorced and while she’s cool with her father dating, she’s had a hard time with her mom doing the same because she likes to keep her love life close to the vest.
See what she had to say about it below
Tamera: I’ve never really talked about this on television but my mom and dad are actually divorced. So right now, we’re living different phases of our lives. I love that she is living her life like it’s golden but I feel like if we lived together, our roles will be reversed. I’d be like, ‘Whatchu doing tonight? You didn’t come home until what? Who are you dating?’
I’m so overprotective over my mom. And this is new. They’ve been divorced for four years but it took me a while to accept that. And now my mom is out there. I guess she’s dating. But she’s very private. Whereas my dad, I met his girlfriend. She’s Asian. Nana. I Nana. I love you so much. She’s awesome.
But my mom…
Jeannie: She’s private. Why do you think?
Tamera: Because she’s a Scorpio and she knows that I’m going to be very, very opinionated. I will be hard on her like she was hard on me. She can’t just date just anybody. Is that wrong?
Adrienne: It is but I get it.
Loni: She deserves to live her life and you need to let her live her life.
Tamera: I’m not saying that, I’m just saying, just communicate about it.
Loni: She don’t have to tell you nothing, she grown. She had you, you didn’t have her. Check yourself, okay? Leave her alone. Miss. Darlene, do what you want to do.

What do you think about your parents dating, would you be the overprotective child? Or do you agree with Loni that since they were here before us, we should just mind our business?
