‘It’s Because She Is living Her Authentic, True Self’: Tamera Mowry Proclaims Her Sister Tia Mowry Is the ‘Happiest’ She’s Been in a ‘Long Time’ Amid Divorce from Cory Hardrict

Tamera Mowry is in full support of her sister, Tia Mowry, while she adjusts to life as a single woman. The actress and mother of two filed for divorce last month, citing irreconcilable differences with her estranged husband Cory Hardrict. But one look at her social media accounts, and you’d think she’s been on cloud on nine for weeks.

“I told her, I said, ‘Tia, I’m looking on your Instagram, this is the happiest you’ve been in a long time,” Tamera recalled during a chat with ET Online. She told Tia, “You are glowing! You look different, but In a very positive way!'”

“We will maintain a friendship as we co-parent our beautiful children,” Tia wrote at the time. “I am grateful for all the happy times we had together and want to thank my friends, family and fans for your love and support as we start this new chapter moving forward in our lives.

In discovering her new life as a single mom, Tia is now taking extra care of herself and considering her needs first. 

“I feel like, especially as a mom wearing so many different hats, I’m always in survival mode,” she told People magazine earlier this month. 

“I’m always making sure everybody is OK, everybody’s alive, everybody’s healthy, everybody’s fed,” the “Family Reunion” star notes, “making sure everybody’s fine, they have no holes in their socks, et cetera.”
