Tamera Mowry took to her blog to put critics of her interracial relationship in check and share a near death experience that led her to have a life changing epiphany.
Khloe Kardashian look what you started! Looks like another celeb has taken to their blog to slam their critics and we’re loving every minute of it.
This time it was new mother Tamera Mowry who had to set critics straight after people posted cruel comments about the color of her baby’s skin and her interracial relationship with husband Adam Housley.
We may have elected the country’s first black president, and interracial couples are becoming more and more common every day but that doesn’t mean there aren’t still ignorant people out there who have the audacity to attack someone’s relationship simply because of the color of their skin.
Well Tamera finally had enough of the ignorance so she posted an open letter thanking her fans who supported her and putting her haters in check.
“Tia and I have always known we have amazing fans, but reading all your messages and comments on this blog make it even clearer,” the letter began. “When people say ignorant things about Aden’s race or my marriage with his daddy Adam, it’s easy for me to take it personally – even after all this time, my skin isn’t that thick!”
She went on to express that the support from her fans has helped her make it through the criticisms, especially when she hears about other happy interracial couples.
“But hearing your stories about your own beautiful, mixed race babies and the love you have for their fathers grounds me back to reality and reminds me of the truth,” she continued. “Skin color has NOTHING to do with love. How Aden looks or grows up to look like – whether he looks more “white” or more “black” – doesn’t matter to me. Why should it? He’s my precious baby boy and my only job is to be the best mommy I can be to him while showing him both sides of his heritage. All I want for him to believe is that love knows no boundaries.”
Tell ‘em Tamera!
Not exactly the cat claws out, rip ‘em apart and take out the trash type of rant that Khloe Kardashian delivered when she was fed up with critics, but we still like it. Perhaps even better since her calm response will probably help more people actually recognize the message.
Meanwhile, Tamera was busy spreading all kind of truth on her blog especially after narrowly avoiding a serious car accident.
The length blog post gave readers a step by step of the moment Tamera thought she would lose her family in a terrible crash but survived thanks to her husband’s quick thinking and reflexes.
“The other day, Adam, Aden and I had a brush with a very scary situation,” the celeb blogger wrote. “We were driving along on the highway, when all of a sudden the car in front of us crashed into the car in front of it. We watched in horror as the car flipped over and over and over again on the highway. It was terrifying… I still get chills now just thinking about it.”
She went on to say that her life flashed before her eyes and all she wanted to do was protect baby Aden.
“All I could think about was protecting our new son Aden,” she continued. “Once we got out of our car and helped the victims, I just held our lil baby and cried.”
In the midst of the crazy situation, Mowry revealed she had an epiphany that she wanted to share with the rest of her fans.
“Life is too short to not do what you have set your heart out to do,” the blog post continued. “Life is too short to hold any grudges. Life is short, and life is beautiful. To have the gift of life is a blessing. Many die daily and if you are alive right now, then you have been given that gift.”
Her close call encouraged her to go forward not being worried about “fears or pain” and to just “trust in God and live every day He’s given us to the very fullest.”
