Read Twitter Battle that caused Tamera Mowry-Housley to cry on Oprah & how hubby Adam defended his woman

This past Friday, January 10, Tia Mowry Hardrict and twin sis Tamera Mowry-Housley appeared before Oprah Winfrey on her popular OWN TV show Where Are They Now?”.   The show revisits and catches up with beloved pop culture stars of previous generations. 
During the session, Tamera broke down while discussing racism she encountered in social media over her decision to marry a white man. Although the sisters have a white dad and a black mom, they identify black and are generally perceived by audiences as black women. 
We thought we’d share for those who may be wondering, an excerpt of the recap from our October 2012 posting which had a summary of one such Twitter battle which was the cause of much pain to Tamera. 
In this summary, you’ll see her husband Adam Housley come to Tamera’s defense against Twitter bullies.
It happened the night of the Vice Presidential televised debate between Vice President Joe Biden and Republican candidate Rep. Paul Ryan. Here it is:
Tamera Mowry-Housley retweeted Fox News host Greta Van Susteren’s Tweet about Vice President Joe Biden’s constant interruption of Republican VP Candidate Paul Ryan during the VP debate. ” I think i might turn this off if it were not my job to watch it…the interruptions make it impossible to learn anything.”
About 1900 people retweeted it, but because Tamera is Black (bi-racial), and her husband, Adam Housley is White, and he works for the very conservative and right-leaning Fox News that was enough for people to assail Tamera with an avalanche of mean, hateful, nasty and misogynistic tweets.
Even though Tamera did not say she was a Republican and say who she was voting for, simply retweeting Greta was enough to send the Twitter Bullies swinging!

In reply, Tamera tweeted then later deleted:

Some came to her rescue…

via Twitchy

And then Adam went back and forth with a few …

Finally, fed up, Adam went IN….

After that, most of the “@” Tweets stopped and the two started to get more supportive tweets.
Phew! Live and let live people!
Sadly, I can relate.  As a Center Right Independent person who writes about politics for national audiences and have criticized the president in my writing on occasion (even though I am critical of Mitt Romney much too), I have had several hate letters, emails and Twitter attacks calling me all sorts of names from C*nt, to Uncle Tom etc etc. 

At one point, I used to get one a month.  It stings at first, but I’ve learned that when you put yourself and your opinions out there for wide consumption by a large group of people and are perceived to be in a position of influence because of that wide reach, you will ultimately reach large swaths of folks who will not agree. 

Some of those people are simple, narrow-minded, bigoted, racist, and have linear and limited experience that prohibits them from accepting others and not showing disdain for anyone they disagree with…and from behind the comfort of their computer screens, anyone can say smack “@” you that they wouldn’t DARE say to your face. 

Got to shake it off and keep it popping!
Looks like Tamera did last night, sent out a bible scripture and has moved on…

Tia and Tamera Mowry say goodbye to their reality TV show

Season 3 Poster

After three years of starring in a popular and well-ranked docu-series, Tia Mowry Hardrict and Tamera Mowry-Housley have decided to leave the reality TV world to focus on their lives behind the cameras.

Many were wondering what would become of the popular Style channel shows like Tia and Tamera which the sisters starred in, and Jerseylicious after the channel’s parent company NBC Universal  decided to fold it in. Its execs decided that the content on Style overlapped with its other properties: E!, BravoTV and Oxygen networks. It nixed Style and replaced it with a male-focused channel Esquire TV mid season. All of the back episodes of Style channel shows have been playing in replay on E!

Tamera shared the news in a series of Tweets on New Year’s Eve:

Tia Mowry Hardict Battles Back After Gestational Diabetes Diagnosis

Tia Mowry Hardrict recently revealed that she contracted gestational diabetes while pregnant with her second child, daughter Cairo Tiahna.

“After being diagnosed with #gestationaldiabetes, I was lost for words,” she captioned a video of herself and her trainer getting in some exercise. “Never ever did I think, THIS could happen to me. Most of the time, doctors say it will go away after birth, however, it does put you at a higher risk for diabetes later in life. Time to get back on track. Making healthy choices and moving :). ?? Follow my @igtvworld for more updates! Xx”

She is correct! About half of all women who develop gestational diabetes are likely to develop type 2 diabetes later in life according to the Centers for Disease Control. Babies too whose mothers have gestational diabetes are at higher risk of being born early, having low blood sugar, and developing obesity later in life.

The key is to eat healthy, maintain a healthy diet, that includes leafy vegetables, fruits and wholesome food to stave them off. Good for Mowry Hardrict for being proactive!

For those not yet pregnant or still in the early stages of your pregnancy, compared to usual care, lifestyle interventions reduced the overall risk of developing gestational diabetes by 32%. Watch your sugar and caloric intake, get plenty of prenatal exercise in like walking and monitor your food portions and you should be okay!

Meanwhile, the 2nd-time new mom has been keeping her fans and followers updated with her post natal plans and showing off photos of her hubby and son with Cory Hardrict’s dead ringer, baby Cairo Tiahna Hardrict, who has the same monogram  (CTH) as big brother Cree Taylor Hardict, similar to how their cousins, Tamera Mowry-Housley‘s children have the same monogram (ATH): Aden Tanner Housley and Ariah Talea Housley.

Our Fave Mowry Twins 70’s Themed 40th Birthday Party and It Was Every Bit As Groovy As We Imagined It Would Be

Tia Mowry Hardrict and Tamera Mowry-Housley celebrated a huge milestone together: their 40th birthday!

The identical twin sisters brought their closest friends and family together for a ’70s-themed party at Good Times at Davey Wayne’s in Hollywood on Saturday.

“We live very kind of busy lives and I really wanted us to slow things down for a minute and take the time out to celebrate,” Mowry-Hardrict exclusively told PEOPLE. “The last time we had a party together was when we turned 21. We have our individual careers, but I just felt like it was something we needed to celebrate together.”…

And of course, the sisters dressed the part! From funky afros to bell-bottom jeans, the duo and their guests embraced the ’70s decade while dancing the night away, munching on classic bites — such as hotdogs, hamburgers and grilled cheese sandwiches — and indulging in a colorful, retro birthday cake by Dani Flowers Bakery….

And while the duo continue to focus on their individual careers and families (Tia and husband Cory Hardrict share 6½-year-old son, Cree Taylor, and 2-month-old daughter, Cairo; Tamera and husband Adam Housley share 5-year-old son, Aden, and 3-year-old daughter, Ariah), they have an unbreakable bond.

“Feeling grateful and blessed as we welcome our little baby girl into the world!” the couple wrote in the caption, going on to add, “We are in heaven ??.”

The new arrival is the second child with Hardrict for 38-year old The Game alum. The couple of 10-years are also parents to 6-year old son Cree Taylor.

the spouses of 10 years also have a 6½-year-old son named Cree Taylor.

Inside Tia Mowry’s Bohemian Farmtable Baby Shower

This weekend actress and author Tia Mowry Hardrict and her husband Cory Hardrict celebrated the impending arrival of their second child, a daughter, at a Bohemian and “whimsical” themed Farm table baby shower at the Il Pastaio restaurant in Beverly Hills.

The Sister, Sister and The Game alum enlisted the help of celebrity event planner Mindy Weiss  who incorporated pink florals, wooden place mats, and twinkling lights at the intimate evening affair.

The mom-to-be of the hour wore a coral lace maxi dress to the event also attended by her 6 1/2 year old son Cree Taylor, her sister Tamera Mowry-Housley, and brothers Taj  and Tavior.

“I’m literally still on a high from my baby shower,” the Instant Mom alum told PEOPLE about her March 31st celebration. “We chose the boho theme mainly because my husband and I have been looking at a couple of names and have been narrowing down. And we felt like her name fit that theme…So we wanted to give some sort of tribute to her already. Cory and I also love the boho styles and everything. It made a lot of sense. The baby shower was in theme with her name.”

 

They didn’t share what the baby’s name will be but did reveal that her initials will be CTH, same as her son’s.

“I learned my lesson, so many people have so many opinions and this is kind of just between you and your husband,” she told the celebrity site. “I’m definitely going to wait, but we did play a game where guests can guess the baby’s name. And some of them were pretty close.”

“It was so incredibly beautiful. It was family and friends, it was all intimate. Whenever Cory and I throw a party, we always love it to be intimate,” Mowry-Hardrict explains. “We don’t really look for really big rooms, we look for rooms where people when they sit down they’re gonna have to talk to each other. It’s all about the experience. I’m such a nurturer at heart and it’s like, ‘Yes I want to have a great time,’ but it’s all about everyone else celebrating this amazing moment. Everyone getting in on this celebration so it was full of love and full of tears.”

https://www.instagram.com/p/BhBENepBkU6/
Tia revealed that her husband was instrumental for including some of the surprises at the event.

“My husband surprised me, I had no idea. He had Kenny Lattimore come and sing. It was special for me because Kenny Lattimore sang at our wedding. He sang ‘For You’ which is the song I walked down the aisle to,” she says of the special song that also commemorated their 10-year anniversary, which is April 20. “Cory wanted to surprise me with his present. I walked into the room and gasped like, ‘What is happening here?’ and just sang the song. There was not a dry eye in the room. It was just so amazing. It was just wonderful.”

The event was made even more special because of the struggles the couple had to conceive their second child.

“I didn’t think I’d be able to have a second child, and it’s been over seven years since my first pregnancy… I put it off, but I did want to have another child,” she shared to PEOPLE earlier. “I didn’t let my infertility issues define me or define what my goals were and what I wanted out of life. We did try for a long time. It was hard. But I didn’t give up.”

Her husband Cory recently opened up to ESSENCE about his undying love for his pregnant wife:

“I could go on forever talking about my wife [but] I will make sure that I will always do anything that she wants and needs at the drop of a finger to make sure she’s happy… It’s just like how I live my everyday life. [Even] when y’all don’t see that, that’s still what happens in the house. I’m rubbing her feet, running her a bath, doing whatever I can to make sure she’s okay.”

Altogether now….Awwwww!

Tia Mowry Announces a ‘Sister Sister’ Reboot is In the Works for 2018

Full House, Rosanne, Will & Grace, Mad About You… and next Sister, Sister??? The here and now and future are all about revival of 90s hit TV shows.

Current second-time mom-to-be Tia Mowry Hardrict is working on a reboot of her popular sitcom show with her twin sister Tamera Mowry-Housley that ended 18 years ago. Tia updated fans about the plans in a November 15 Facebook Live where she answered questions.

It’s closer than ever, Tia shared with the fans of her page who tuned in for her then-first ever Facebook Live event, which was a behind-the-scenes look at the making of her recent video for her Tia Mowry Quick Fix channel. 

Tia updated US Weekly about the plans early last month.

“I think fans will love it because I just feel very blessed and honored that people are still following my sister and I 20 years later. So I think they’ll be excited to see where we are right now and to see our dynamic right now,” Tia told US Weekly. “We’re just excited to just give back to the fans and make them happy, that’s really one of the main reasons why we’re doing it.”

She added while attending the Santa Monica event:

“We’re talking about working with the producers who were producers on the show 15, 20 years ago… Just to be sitting in these meetings with them 20 years later, it’s crazy.”

Tia and her husband Cory Hardrict are expecting their second child. They are parents to son Cree. During the FB Live she said this pregnancy is different that the first in that she doesn’t have 9 months of extreme morning sickness, has more energy and knows what to expect. Good!

Cory and Tia got engaged in 2006, married two years later and welcomed son Cree in 2011, before her sister Tamera had her first child, and was still a newly wed.

We know Tamera gave birth to children, 4-year old Aden John Tanner and 2-year old Ariah Talea, with husband, FOX News Correspondent Adam Housley while Tia, presumably was trying to expand her family as well.

As far back as 2013, Tia has expressed interest in having a second baby. “It’s something that we’re talking about on a daily basis, so…we’ll see!” she told E! News at the time.

It’s been a long time coming and perhaps she will share some of her journey later with the public… or not! We’re not entitled to know. (smile)

Congrats! We are so thrilled and happy for this news! Both are our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums.

Tia Mowry says People Asking Her if She’s Pregnant are ‘Body-Shaming’

tiamowry-header

Well here is another case of “damned if you do, damned if you don’t”

Back in 2013, when Tia Mowry Hardrict  lost a ton  of weight after having her first child and became vegan, her fans all complained that she was too thin. Some begged her to gain more weight.

Now that the Instant Mom actress has put on a few pounds while shooting episodes of her Cooking Channel show, she’s getting trolled again.

This time, many are suggesting that perhaps the Rosewood star is pregnant.

The constant comments caused The Game alum to address the insinuations recently on an appearance on HuffPostLive

“I just looked at my Instagram […] and someone was insinuating that I’m pregnant again,” she said. “Guys, I’m not pregnant, I am just happy, and I’ve gained these extra 10, 15 lbs. because of my cooking show!”

The Tia Mowry at Home cooking show host added that she’ll drop the weight when she’s ready but until then, leave her be.

“I’m just enjoying life, and when I want to drop the pounds I will, but right now I’m happy with who I am,” she said.

She called the comments a form of body shaming.

“It’s pretty unfortunate,” she told the site. “We live in a society that is so obsessed with being perfect. Why can’t we just be us? Someone even wrote on my Instagram today, ‘Looks like you’ve picked up a little weight. I hope you lose it. I want you to lose it.’ It’s like, really? Why would you say that? Why do you feel the need to say that?”

Excellent point. The former star of the nowdefunct Style channel reality TV show Tia and Tamera also called for more body acceptance generally.

“We need to be more supportive with body images, especially women, showing that all sizes are beautiful,” she said. “I’m talking about in magazines, advertisements, in regards to what’s sexy and not sexy. We all need to be a little more supportive of each other.”

Another Bellyitch alum who loves to cook, P!nk, also had to shut down haters in April when people in social media going on and on about her post-tour weight gain.

“Here’s the issue: I don’t change my eating when I get home,” she told  US Magazine. “So everyone always asks me, ‘What are you going to do after?’ And I say, ‘Get really fat and happy.'”

She set them straight on Instagram  and Twitter.

“I am perfectly fine, perfectly happy, and my healthy, voluptuous and crazy strong body is having some much deserved time off. Thanks for your concern,” Pink tweeted to fat-shamers in April 2015 after she got slammed for looking curvy at an event. She signed her note, “Love, cheesecake.”

Bravo! We agree!

Good for you Mowry!
