Tamera Mowry, 44, became famous as the twin sister on the popular TV series Sister, Sister from 1994 to 1999. She went on to star in a variety of television shows, including Detention, Strong Medicine, Roommates and more. She also produced and starred in the Hallmark movies The Santa Stakeout, A Christmas Miracle, Something to Sing About and Seventeen Again. She later co-hosted the syndicated daytime talk show The Real alongside Adrienne Bailon, Loni Love and Jeannie Mai. She has since hosted a reality series following her and her twin sister's life called Tia & Tamera and competed on the food competition show Table Wars.
She has also narrated the children's book The Christmas Chronicles. She's also slated to host Amazon Studios' baking competition series Baker's Dozen with pastry chef Bill Yosses and will appear in the Hallmark movie Girlfriends' Getaway in 2022.
In November 2018, Mowry-Housley's world was rocked when she learned that her niece, Alaina Housley, had been killed in the mass shooting at the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks, California, along with 11 other people. She has since spoken out about her loss and has dedicated her upcoming memoir to her late niece.
In the book, entitled You Should Sit Down for This, Mowry-Housley sheds her "good girl" image to empower women to step up to life's challenges and surprises. The memoir is available for pre-order now and will be released on October 4.
