Exclusive Interview: Tia & Tamera Mowry Talk Rejection & Loving Their Bodies In Spite Of Hollywood Standards
The fabulous twins, Tia and Tamera Mowry have been in our hearts and in our homes (through the television) for nearly two decades. The gorgeous young mommy’s are gracing the cover of Essence Magazine for the April edition and we had a chance to have an interesting conversation with the ladies as well!
Cherise Nicole (CNikky) and our associates EURweb spoke to Tia, Tamera and their friends, Life coach, AJ Johnson and actress, Essence Atkins during the Essence Women In Hollywood luncheon. We spoke with them about their SHeroes, their past bad relationships, becoming new mommies and learning to love their bodies in spite of Hollywood standards.
When I Asked them If they experienced a bad break-up:
“If you haven’t had a bad break-up, you won’t appreciate love and the relationship that you’re in.”
If you could go back give yourself advice during your worst break-up, what would you say:
“Girl, let it go and move on! Move on..it ain’t worth it, And I tell all my girlfriends that and of course, they can’t see it. But I couldn’t see it then. And I always say, rejection is God’s protection. And it’s the truth! It really really is! It is a blessing. I’m like Thank God! What the hell was I thinking!”
Has the pressure of Hollywood ever made you insecure?
“The whole point is to live your truth. I became insecure about was not living my truth. I took a step away from the business to create my passion and live my purpose with my healthy living company. But again it’s the insecurity of wondering if people are going to accept your truth.”
“I’m in that moment right now, I just had a baby and you see a lot of these women after they have babies and you know I have to give it to them, I don’t know how they did it, but they look amazing. For me being in Hollywood and knowing that I’m not gonna loose the weight the way some of these women have, I have to learn to love every ounce of my body and every phase of it.”
If you’ve ever wondered if you’re the only one that wears spanx…Tamera let us know…
“I have three of them on! And I still have curves.”
