Tamera Mowry-Housley has been working in Hollywood since before she was 16 years old, which is when she landed her first lead role alongside her sister, Tia, in the sitcom Sister, Sister. The twins also starred in Disney’s Twitches movies and had their own reality show on the Style Network. As an adult, Mowry-Housley is busy co-hosting The Realmaking Hallmark movies, and now authoring a book.
This week on the In Her Shoes podcast, the actress talked with Cut editor-in-chief Lindsay Peoples about experiencing fame at a young age, her evolving career, and how she now protects her peace at all costs. She looks back on the “dream” that she was starring in a sitcom with her twin as a teenager, how she learned to prioritize having fun, and transitioning from stardom at a young age.
In October, Mowry-Housley has a memoir out, You Should Sit Down for This: A Memoir About Life, Wine, and Cookiesin which she says she’ll be sharing her truth and delving into her sex life (something the talk show host says always shocks people because of her outspoken Christian faith).
