Tamera Mowry-Housley, is missing her twin sister Tia Mowry-Hardrict since the pandemic began in March. In an interview with “Entertainment Tonight” on Saturday, Tamera reveals that it’s been about half a year since she last saw her sister.
“I still haven’t seen her physically,” she says.
Tamera explained, “Because I live in Napa and right when we were actually going to head up there, there was a surge in L.A. and it wasn’t wise for all of us to go there.”
Tamera talked about how she recently traveled to the area where Tia lives and that they planned to meet. But Tia’s work schedule conflicted with the times that they had planned to link up.
The 42-year-old continued, “But I know for a fact when see each other, we’re just, we’re going to cry.”
But the twins didn’t let their distance or a pandemic stop them from spending time with each other.
“What we have been doing is every two weeks we Zoom each other and we have happy hour. So we have a glass of wine, we talk about what’s been happening,” she said.
She clarified that they talk more often than that but just in other forms of communication. She said they text every other day, but being able to visually see your loved one, or being in the same physical space as your loved one, is better.
Six months ago, in a previous conversation with “Entertainment Tonight,” Tia Mowry admitted how difficult quarantining has been for her.
Tia said that after just two weeks of quarantining, “It’s starting to get to me.”
When asked about her sister Tamera she tearfully answered, “Not to be able to see my dad, my brothers, and my sister has been pretty hard because we are all pretty close.”
But Tia reaffirmed that, although it was hard being away from family, “Staying at home saves lives.”
