The Mowry sisters won the world over with their joint rendition of the soul sisters in the 90s sitcom, “Sister, Sister.” The drama skyrocketed the duo to stardom, and since then, their lives have progressed in the full gaze of the public.
Starring as Tia Landry and Tamera Campbell in the ABC sitcom, “Sister, Sister,” in their late teens, Tia Mowry and her sister, Tamera Mowry, paved their way to fame. Following their five-year run on the show, the pair became household names in the United States.
Over two decades later, Tia and Tamera’s lives are still intertwined with the spotlights. Remarkably, the sisters have harnessed every moment of their Hollywood breakthroughs in their favor.
Now each happily married with kids and enjoying successful careers; it’s quite challenging to picture the successful duo as the jolly teenage sisters who first graced the big screens in 1994.
TIA AND TAMERA MOWRY’S LIVES ON “SISTER, SISTER”
The Mowry sisters landed their roles on the ABC sitcom, “Sister, Sister,” when they were sixteen. The series followed the lives of two sisters forced to live apart after fate separated them at birth. After growing up for fourteen years in different backgrounds and adopting opposite personalities, they found each other coincidentally.
While Tia Mowry starred as Tia Landry, the calm, intelligent twin, Tamera played the exact opposite, an out-going boy-crazy teenager. Following their separation at birth, a single woman working as a seamstress adopted Tia, while a high-society couple, running a limousine service, adopted Tamera.
Their meeting fourteen years later marked the beginning of their new lives together. Tia and her adoptive mom eventually moved in with Tamera and her widowed dad to prevent a second separation.
The series aired for six seasons before its cancelation in 1999.
WHERE ARE THE MOWRY TWINS ALMOST THREE DECADES LATER
After winning hearts for six years in showbiz, Tia and her sister proceeded to study Psychology at Pepperdine University. While obtaining their degrees, however, they never gave up their acting careers.
At the time of their graduation, they already held credits for movies like “Seventeen Again,” “Smart Guy,” “The Hot Chick,” and “Detention.”
As their lives progressed, Tamera and Tia soon diversified their acting, taking on different projects. They also began their own families with their respective spouses.
Today, Tamera Mowry Housley is a mother of two, a wife to Adam Housley, a renowned actress, and television personality. On the other hand, Tia Mowry-Hardrict has also excelled in the movie industry. Additionally, she is married to actor Cory Hardrict, and the duo shares two children.
TAMERA AND TIA MOWRY’S PERSONAL LIVES
The Mowry twins, born into a Christian home on July 6, 1978, became born again Christians at eight. Due to their religious beliefs and upbringing, they were committed to abstaining from sexual activities until they married their significant other.
On May 15, 2011, Tamera Mowry tied the knot with Adam Housley, after dating him for six years. The actress opened up about losing her virginity at 29 and how she felt guilty afterward and resolved to remain celibate until marriage.
Her marriage to Housley at thirty-three yielded two children. Tamera Mowry’s kids, Aden John Housley and Ariah Talea Housley, joined the family in 2012 and 2015. Housley and Tamera’s marriage has remained blissful and scandal-free to date.
Tia Mowry married her life-long companion, Cory Hardrict on, April 20, 2008, years after meeting him on the set of “Hollywood Horror.”
Since becoming a married couple, the lovebirds have welcomed two children, a son, and a daughter. Hardrict and Tia Mowry’s kids, born in 2011 and 2018, have had their brush with fame despite being youngsters. Cree has appeared in movies like “Family Reunion,” and “Career Suicide,” while his sister occasionally features in Tia’s posts.
TIA MOWRY AND TAMERA MOWRY’S CAREERS AFTER “SISTER, SISTER”
In the last two decades, the “Sister, Sister” stars have become leading Hollywood sensations. Together, they starred in “Twitches,” “Twitches Too,” “Strong Medicine,” “Double Wedding,” “Blue’s Clues,” and the reality show, “Tia And Tamera.”
In 2013, the sisters jointly launched the Need Brands aimed at helping mom’s sort out varieties for their kids without stress.
Aside from their joint projects, the sisters have also snagged solo gigs in hit movies and TV series. Some of Tia Mowry’s works include “The American Standards,” “Baggage Claim,” “Indivisible,” “Girlfriends,” “Rosewood,” “Gingerbread Romance,” and “Family reunion.”
She also starred in the Nickelodeon comedy series, “Instant Mom,” and her reality cooking show, “Tia Mowry At Home.”
Meanwhile, Tamera is renowned for her appearances in “Family Guy,” “Roommates, ” “The Game,” “Melissa And Joey,” “Talking Dead,” “Daytime Divas,” and “A Christmas Miracle.”
In addition, the mother of two became a talk show host on the talk show, “The Real,” in 2013. Tamera Mowry’s stint on “The real” ended in July 2020, after announcing her resignation.
HOW THE ALL-TIME FAVORITE TWINS HAVE MAINTAINED THEIR BOND OVER THE YEARS
Despite each taking on new challenges and families, Tia and Tamera Mowry have remained the ultimate sister goals. The pair credited their parents, who raised them in a spiritual household filled with love, for their bond, achievements so far, and scandal-free lives. During an interview, Tamera once divulged:
“They weren’t trying to be our best friends, they were our parents. They taught us that you shouldn’t identify yourself with Hollywood; identify yourself with yourself.”
Embracing their parent’s tenets has paid off through the years. Today, Tia and Tamera are Hollywood veterans, with no negative publicity surrounding their life’s choices. That’s unarguably a rare feat in their line of work.
