Tamera Darvette Mowry-Housley is an American actress and television personality. She first gained fame for her teen role as Tamera Campbell on the ABC/WB sitcom Sister, Sister.
Tamera is the latest host to leave ‘The Real’ daytime talk show. The veteran actress has co-hosted the show since its 2013 debut. She took to Instagram on Monday to confirm her exit from the Emmy-Award winning talk show following the then-alleged reports.
“For seven years, my home and heart has been at The Real, wrote Mowry-Housely. “The friendships that I’ve made there will last a lifetime, and the people that I’ve had the blessing to interview have changed my life for the better. I’m so proud of what all the ladies and I have accomplished there, including two well-deserved NAACP Image Awards and a Daytime Emmy. However, all good things must come to an end, and it’s with a bittersweet smile that I announce that I am moving on from The Real.”
She goes on to thank her fellow co-host for the time shared on the award winning showing.
“To my fellow hosts, I love you, I will miss you, and I will always be there for you. Thank you for teaching me, supporting me, and loving all of me. Sisters forever. I’ll be rooting for you, as I look forward to spending more time with my family, pursuing amazing new opportunities, and embarking on the next chapter of my life.”
Mowry-Housley expressed how she had no plans to share her departure following the shocking death news of her dear friend and Glee actress, Naya Rivera.
The 42 years old wrote in an Instagram post that she had “NO intention” to share the news Monday, “especially in light of the news of my dear friend Naya, but now some reports are coming out and I’d rather you hear it from me first.”
The ‘Sister Sister’ actress is the third host to leave the show since its beginning in 2013. Amanda Seales, who joined the show back in January, announced her exit just six months following her debut. Tamar Braxton left the show back in 2016 as part of the show’s original group of hosts. There is no word on whether or not someone will fill the absent seats of Mowry-Housley and Seales.
And then there were 3. Loni Love, Adrienne Houghton, and Jeannie Mai remain as co-hosts of The Real. The show won back-to-back NAACP Image Awards for best talk series and a Daytime Emmy in 2018 for best talk show host.
The TV personality and actress said she planned to pursue “amazing new opportunities” in her “next chapter” and spend more time with her family. She married former Fox News correspondent Adam Housley in 2011 and the couple has two children together: Aden, 7, and Ariah, 5.
