Best known for starring in 1990's TV show Sister Sister opposite her identical twin, Tia, Tamera Mowry-Housley has been with The Real since it launched back in 2013. She took to social media this week to make the announcement about her departure, highlighting the friendships she made with her co-hosts and the recognition they won, including a daytime Emmy Award.

Mowry-Housely, whose most recent movie role came in the 2019 Hallmark production A Christmas Miracle, and has another one called Christmas Carnival releasing with that outfit for this year's Yuletide season, says in the post that her "home and heart have been at The Real," and acknowledges that she is departing "with a bittersweet smile."

"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."

Mowry-Housley plans to spend more time with her husband and their two young children, but is evidently not turning her back on show biz, saying in her farewell post she is also looking forward to "pursuing amazing new opportunities," though she does not name them. She is quite a talent, so there will no doubt be plenty of choices for her, and Christian Film Blog will keep you abreast of developments as we get them.
