As Tia Mowry readies for a second season of her top rated reality TV show “Tia & Tamera” she addresses the trending topic of too much drama on TV. Basketball Wives has shouldered much of the blame for the outcry and Tia proudly proclaims that her show with twin sister Tamera Mowry-Housley offers a much needed alternative.
The new mommy of one to Cree Taylor, author of “Oh Baby” and successful actress looks gorgeous on the cover of Vibe Vixen check out excerpts from her interview below:
On Her Style Since Having Cree
It’s so funny you asked me that because Tamera just told me, ‘Your style has really changed.’ My whole thing with being a mom is that you don’t want to lose your identity; you don’t want to lose who you were before. You can still be that hot, sexy mom. If anything, I like to think I’m wearing heels even more. I didn’t wear them that much until the end [of the pregnancy], so I’m now all about wearing heels. I wear a lot of vibrant, flowy, colorful clothes, before it was edgy. I’m a mom now, but when I go out, I don’t forget who I was before.
On Basketball Wives and Real Housewives of Atlanta
I haven’t seen “Basketball Wives,” but I heard about it. I am a huge fan of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” but I just think that Tamera and I have a different take on these reality shows. I remember when we were pitching our show to different networks, many of them didn’t want to pick it up because they felt like we didn’t have enough conflict. My sister and I were like, ‘We aren’t those type of people,’ so it’s all about us being positive role models. People always say it’s nice to see fresh, vibrant, funny women on television, and that’s my sister and I. That’s how our career has always been and we knew we weren’t going to change who we are for the show business, so it’s kind of something that has been accepted.
On Reactions to “The Game” this season and the show changes
I basically agree with them. I do think the show is different and it’s taken a new turn, but it’s not a new show. It is more from a drama perspective now and these last few episodes have been amazing. It’s almost like you are watching a mini-movie, and for the fans that watched it from the beginning, they can’t adjust well to the difference, but new fans love it because it’s a real show. I have to appreciate that these characters are real and they come from a realistic perspective. We talk about topics that a lot of people don’t want to talk about.
Sadly Tia won’t be returning for another season of ‘The Game’ but you can always catch her ‘Tia & Tamera’ premiering June 11th!
