Tamera Mowry-Housley opened up to Oprah Winfrey about the years of online hate that has been directed at her over her marriage to Fox News correspondent Adam Housely, who is White.

During a taping of “Where Are They Now,” a series airing Winfrey’s OWN channel, Mowry-Housley sat next to her sister, Tia Mowry-Hardrict, as she outlined the hateful messages she has received, mostly on Twitter. “Because when my husband and I are so openly– and we’re fine with showing– is love,” she said. “Love. But people choose to look past love and spew hate. That’s what hurts me because I’ve never experienced so much hate ever in my life. Ever.”

Mowry-Housley shared one of the most hurtful comments someone directed at her: “I get called ‘White man’s whore,’ she said. “The new one was, back in the day, you cost $300, but now you’re giving it to him for free.”’

Tia, who is married to a Black man, wiped away her sister’s tears as she listened to her open up about her pain. Chiming in on Temera’s words, Tia said, ” I get the opposite, actually. I’ve had people say that you’ve done it right by marring a White man.”

But Tamera’s response to the hate is to express the love she has for her husband. “I love my husband so much, she said. “I love my family. I love our dynamic. I’m proud to be in the relationship I am in because it’s based on love. Pure love.” Watch the segment below to see the twins discuss Tamera’s painful reaction to the online hate she has experienced.

  1. I read the comment of Mrs. Mowery’s husband comment and seems to me that he has an issue too. sicne when is one half-Black???? Did he have an issue just saying he was marrying to a Black Woman. Isn’t that what society says, I drop of a black man’s blood, you are Black. So, how did she become half-black? If that is so, why not call Our President half-black?
    What different does it make……stop looking at color and look at what is right!!!

    People need to grow up and let people live their lives. Whether you’re black, white, gay, straight doesn’t matter to God. He loves us because that is what it is about. Like Tamera said, she loves her husband and he loves her. Most of us watched these girls grow up. I’m sure they had problems and issues but they didn’t live it out in the media. They became respectible young ladies and are great role models for our girls of any color. I’m proud of them. Tamera/Tia, I hope you read this and know that you’ve done good and keep it up. And next time some ignoramous say something out the way like that…just say, yes I am and laugh. Continue to stay humble and God bless.

    To the idoits who don’t know her/their father is white! But I guess it doesn’t matter to the idiots who way things like that. President Obama’s mother is white but that doesn’t matter to the idiots either. Some people are just mean, evil, and hateful to anyone who’s born black/white biracial. What about the other interracial groups/ethnic groups spewing the hate about that? i.e., white asain, white hispanic and/or hispanic white, german jewish, jewish german etc….

      Not a bit, why would we be? I watch Fox but I watch MSNBC too- I say let people be free to be what they want to be, do what they want to do, and always live in a Free country. That last part is the real trick- there are many forms of slavery, you just need to be able to recognize when The Man is closing the shackles.
