Tamera Mowry-Housley Hasn’t Seen Sister Tia in SIX MONTHS! (Exclusive)

Tamera Mowry-Housley is missing her identical twin sister, Tia. The 42-year-old actress reveals to ET that they haven’t seen each other in over six months since the coronavirus pandemic first hit, adding that it’s the longest they’ve ever gone without seeing one another in their lives. Tamera also reacts to Tia’s interview with ET in March, where she emotionally opened up about how difficult it was to be quarantined apart from her sister. Plus, Tamera sheds light on Tia’s memory of the then-child stars being snubbed by a popular magazine because they are Black. For all the ‘Sister, Sister’ fans, Tamera shares an update on the reboot project she and Tia are trying to bring to life. She also marvels over the show’s lasting legacy, what it’s like to meet the new generation of fans who have discovered the show on Netflix and how special it is that her daughter loves the series. Tamera even has an idea for her daughter, Ariah Housley, and Tia’s daughter, Cairo Hardrict, to play them in a revival! Aside from work, Tamera is also making it a point to prioritize her health and wellness by doing regular Zumba exercise classes, leading up to World Mental Health Day on Oct. 10.

    Why is it weird that they don't see each other like that? Maybe they aren't that close. And during covid times, you're not going to go out of your way. They're probably cool but not besties!!!

    I'm not getting this. Seems to be a lot of drama over something they can do quite easily. No one is saying to do a mass group huddle and never break free. The sisters & rest of the family can safely see each other & visit in person in a safe way. See your family because COVID has nothing to do with the fact that anyone anytime anywhere can drop dead in an instant. Tomorrow is not promised. You can do an in person drive-by or stay-in-car meet & greet. They have the resources to get creative in ways the average Joe & Jane can't to pull off a family visit.

    I haven’t seen any of my siblings since our mother and sister funerals. Just before the pandemic. Now another one of my sisters is extremely sick. I’m so depressed that I can’t go to her according to my doctor. I’m about to put my life in God capable hands and trust that if I continue to protect myself and other. Than I will be okay. It’s not having one of our siblings with her. I feel is assisting with her declining health issues. I have been where she’s at this moment. I know well those feelings. They will put you in an early grave without intervention. If you can get to your loved ones, even if it’s right outside of their window. Do it they need it far more than you realize.

    Hello every one my I want to use this medium to appreciate Dr tunde a great spell caster for helping me retrieving back my relationship with my ex lover when he ended and turned back on me for quite a long time now (6 months ago) He performed a spell for me and within 48 hours after the spell had been cast I receive a text from my ex saying that he is sorry for the pains and tears that he had caused me and that he will not do such thing to me again in his life. I was surprised but later accepted him back again. Anyone that is in the same line of problem or different one that want to contact a spell caster should happily contact Dr tunde now on this email address:babatundesolutioncentre1@gmail. com or you can contact him through his whatsapp line +2348143581382

    I think a movie would be a GREAT idea! It could definitely involve their children and use some of the elements like Parent Trap 2 where the sisters switch again but with a more original plot. They could leave it open and it could eventually act as a sort of a pilot in case they want to move forward with a series.

    She didn’t need to work harder after getting rejected. They were better than “good enough” to be featured in the magazine. It’s the management behind the magazine that needed to change their mindset. Also, it must be irritating for Tamera to have to answer questions about her sister all the time. Vice Versa for Tia.

She first asked why they been apart so long, then even pushes tamera to basically verify if the story tia told the interviewer was true....like why even ask that she implying she felt tia was lying...like i dont like that interviewer at allll

    i love you and you and your sister. I understand how black folks must work twice as hard i followed that rule and I was able to get better positions on my job before I retired at 49. But damn how much longer do black people have to work sooooo much harder than anyone else in order to be successful ? When will we be finally treated equally to everyone else? Really is that to much to much to ask that we put in the same effort that everyone else"s race does? It just brings me back to our ancestors working in the fields and the slave master whipping our backs. There is not much difference. No were not getting beat but it till feels that way when other races have things a lot easier for them.

It could just be that they want to be safe and it could be that they do have different schedules. They still talk! She said they text each other and every two weeks they zoom.
