Tamera Mowry-Housley Reveals The Real Reason She Quit Reality TV

The daytime talk show host says she wasn't willing to fight with her sister for ratings.

When Tamera Mowry-Housley and Tia Mowry-Hardrict cancelled their Style Network reality show in 2014, there was very little detail about why.

“I had cameras when I was engaged, I had cameras when I was pregnant and then I had cameras around when I had my son,” Mowry-Housley told ESSENCE.com

“I just wanted personal private time with my family. I think that you should have balance in your life. That was something that I particularly needed. I wanted to protect that side of my life. I didn’t want [my son] on camera all the time.”

Three years later, she opened up about the main reason her and her sister quit the successful show while talking about reality TV on The Real with her co-hosts.

“Honestly the reason why my sister and I stopped doing our reality show, one of the main reasons, was because they wanted to turn us into that,” Mowry-Housley said in response to the bickering that occurs on shows like The Real Housewives of Atlanta

“We were not going to have any part of that drama. My sister and I are about positivity and love, and especially for the African-American community.”

While Mowry-Housley went on to co-host the popular daytime talk show, Mowry-Hardrict has been on several TV shows in addition to having a show on Cooking Channel.
