Tia & Tamera Mowry: EBONY Cover Girls

Twins, and Sister, Sister stars Tia Mowry-Hardrict and Tamera Mowry-Housley, grace the May cover of EBONY and dish on family, career and growing up in the public eye.

Tamera on discussing racism with her son Aden: “What I learned to just tell him, ‘They don’t know any better. This is what they’re taught.’ And those [people exist] on both sides; [There are] people who are racist against Blacks and people who are racist against mixed people. All you have to say is, ‘They don’t know,’ and just love them any way.”

Tia on their moments of hardships: “After Sister, Sister ended, nobody was calling. My sister and I were sick and tired of being sick and tired of sitting back and waiting for those phone calls. We had the mentality, ‘We’re not going to depend on anybody anymore, we’re not going to let someone else’s value of us diminish how we value ourselves, and we’re going to put action in place.’ We put our minds together and executed [our plans].”

Tamera on her interracial marriage with FOX news correspondent Adam Housley: “Honestly, growing up, I [just] knew I was going to marry a Black man. But, as I grew up, I learned to just be open. I just wanted to be with someone who was confident around me and who I felt comfortable being myself with.”

Tia’s hair looks photoshopped or something. It’s horrible…with that said they are beautiful successful women!!! No need to mention race!


I agree it’s ether bad photoshop or CBS just has a bad copy. They both look terrible on the cover someone went crazy with the brightness and contrast.


Funny you say that. I was on another blog and commenters were saying how awful the photo was. One person said Ebony magazine is notorious for having bad covers and taking good looking people and making them look funny. This is not CBS’s fault its definitely Ebony’s. The cover is atrocious!


It’s easy not to mention race when you’re never forced to think about it.


People are also racist against white people! Just teach your children that ignorance exist but there is no need to be one. Love and learn to coexist!


two beautiful women!
