Tamera Mowry-Housley has announced she will be leaving the hit daytime talk show The Real.
For six seasons, Mowry-Housley has been a reoccurring host on The Real.But on Monday, the actress announced that she would be leaving the show she’s been on since 2013. “For seven years, my home and heart has been at ‘The Real.’ The friendships that I’ve made there will last a lifetime, and the people that I’ve had the blessing to interview have changed my life for the better. I’m so proud of what all the ladies and I have accomplished there, including two well-deserved NAACP Image Award and a Daytime Emmy,” she said in an Instagram post.
She continued: “However, all good things must come to an end, and it’s with a bittersweet smile that I announce that I am moving on from ‘The Real.’ To my fellow hosts, I love you, I will miss you, and I will always be there for you. Thank you for teaching me, supporting me, and loving all of me. Sisters forever. I’ll be rooting for you, as I look forward to spending more time with my family, pursuing amazing new opportunities, and embarking on the next chapter of my life.”
The show originally aired with Mowry-Housley, Tamar Braxton, Loni Love, Adrienne Bailon, and Jeannie Mai. Since then, Braxton was let go from the show, and actress-comedian #AmandaSeales joined the program in her place back in January. But after roughly six months, Seales announced that she would not be renewing her contract with the show, saying negligence was shown in a variety of ways from production.
Prior to her announcement, Mowry-Housley made a post remembering the late #NayaRivera, whose body was found in Lake Piru after she was missing for five days. “My sweet Naya. I love you. Will always love you. I’ll never forget your sweet smile, your amazing voice, and your warmth and love that has always welcomed me,” Mowry-Housley wrote.
