I know, it seems like every time Tia and Tamera’s names come up, it has something to do with their relationships with their respective husbands. You may or may not be tired of hearing about it, but surely no more than Tamera Mowry is tired of being attacked for who she chose to marry.
We just told you earlier in the week that Tia & Tamera would appear on OWN’s Oprah: Where Are They Now” and there was a super quick cut to Tamera saying, “This is where I get emotional.” But now, they’ve released the full clip and Tamera talks about how hurtful it is to her when she hears or reads things people say about her marriage to Adam Housely:
“This is the big one. They say, ‘Tia’s a true black woman because she married a black man.’ Oh, I’m less of a black person because I married white.”
Tia, on the other hand, says that people have said to her that Tamera’s “done it right” by marrying a white man.
Most of this has to be internet “thuggery” because people would have to really be crazy to say some of the things Tamera says she’s heard to her face. One can also assume that so many negative comments had a hand in them deciding to leave reality television alone and start being more private.
While this episode of Oprah: Where Are They Now? has already aired, they’re always showing reruns so it shouldn’t be hard to catch again. New episodes air Fridays at 8p on OWN.
