SISTER,SISTER Star Wants Women To Consider Interracial Dating

Tamera Mowry walked down the aisle for the first time this past May when she married her longtime boyfriend, Fox News Correspondent, Adam Housley. Tamera was the beaming bride with her twin sister Tia by her side as they celebrated her big day. Tamera sat down with Essence Magazine to discuss her married life, being a good wife and the persistent question about her interracial marriage.

On the interracial question:

Well, I always find these questions so interesting, because I’m a product of an interracial marriage — and I never really grew up seeing color. I honestly realized that my dad was White when someone told me in middle school. They’re like, “Oh your dad’s White?” I’m like, “Oh, my gosh, he really is White.” I knew what race was, but it didn’t matter to me. Yes we are an interracial couple. The thing is we do still deal with that. People always question that. If anything, it hurts, but we do have more people supporting us then making stupid comments. We kind of just ignore it and focus on the positive. Love is love and a lot of times people might be in the situation they’re in because they put barriers up. Like some people only want to date a model, or an actor, or an athlete. You’re only limiting yourself. Open up to what’s out there because God made us all.

On what it means to be a good wife:

My mom was such an amazing example. She was a mom, wife, and a career woman. I just want to be there for my husband. I don’t ever want him to think that he’s not getting everything at home — love, attention, encouragement, a meal. I just want him to feel the best he feels at home. I think that’s what a good wife is. Someone who is very attentive to her husband.

Tamera and Tia will appear in a Style Network special, “Tia & Tamera” dishing on their wedding and Tia’s pregnancy, airing August 8th.

Would you consider Tamera’s advice and date outside of your race?  Have you done so already?

***what does him working at Fox have to do with their interracial marriage?  imo if you are going to hate on Fox, u best hate on CNN, MSNBC, and the rest of them.  Not a fan of cable news tbh....

Now I've got that Amy Poehler SNL skit stuck in my head, the one where Hillary Clinton sings to Obama "I'M DOWN WITH THE SWIRL"
