Tia Mowry and her husband Cory Hardrict have a relatively private marriage. Even when the couple would appear on their reality show together, we never really knew much about their romantic relationship. But recently, we got an unexpected peek.
As you know Brotherly Love stars Hardrict and our girl Keke Palmer. The film premiered in LA on Monday and naturally Tia was there to support her man. Keke Palmer, who is also in the film, was on the red carpet doing interviews.
Early on April 15, two days after the premiere, Tia tweeted something interesting and quickly deleted it. TheShadeRoom saw the tweet and captured it with a screenshot.
Immediately people began wondering who she could have been talking about. It wasn’t long before the internets surmised that it was Cory’s co-star, Keke Palmer. We were all wondering what did she say? Was it really inappropriate? Was Tia really in her feelings? What the hell happened?
Well, in one of the most timely interviews ever, KeKe Palmer appeared on the Wendy Williams show. And Wendy, with the tea, asked Palmer what happened.
Wendy:They were intimating that you were crushing on her husband Cory and then later on Tia Mowry addressed it by tweeting, so what’s going?
I’m sorry to be laughing at this but it is very funny to me because it’s all so twisted. Everything got misconstrued. What happened was, I’ve known Cory since I was 10-years-old. He auditioned for ‘Akeelah and The Bee’ to play my big brother in the film. And in the interview I was talking about how the whole ‘Brotherly Love’ cast, we kind of grew up together. I’ve known Quincy since I was 14. I’ve known most of the cast since I was very young, including Cory. And I was like ‘I’ve known Cory since I was 10 and I was like I’m going to marry this man,’ as a 10-year-old. It was me quoting how I was as a kid.
That’s not my style. But I do love Cory. I do love Cory and Tia.
Wendy: Tia, settle down.
Now all of you trolls out there can stop calling KeKe a hoe/thot or whatever other derogatory name you’re hurling this week.
While Keke cleared her name from this controversy, it still doesn’t really explain why Tia felt the need to tweet about Keke talking about her husband. Maybe there’s more to the story that we don’t know. But from the looks of things it would seem that Tia had a moment of insecurity…or something.
This whole story made me wonder how other women would react in similar situations. Until you get the full details, on the surface this does seem a little sticky.
So I want to ask you, if your husband’s coworker, (past or present), said, openly, that she had/has a crush on him, how would you respond?
Personally, I would skip Twitter, I wouldn’t speak to the woman and I would tell my husband, my man, to keep his eyes peeled. You know men can be oblivious to the subtle flirting signs. I would let him know that she might be plotting and he should keep his antennas up and don’t be caught slipping. Some things you should just keep in house so your marriage doesn’t look fragile and another woman is not needlessly dragged into something messy.
What do you think about this situation with Keke, Tia and Cory and what would you do in a similar situation?
