Newlywed Tamera Mowry Speaks On Interracial Love & Marriage, Does New Photoshoot With Hubby Adam

​ ​ ​ ​

YBF chick Tamera Mowry just got hitched to her long time love Adam Housley this past May.  And she's still gushing with excitement about their wedding day.  And about how happy she is she chose Adam as her hubby.

 

The bi-racial actress dished to Essence.com about people dating outside their race.  And we've got excerpts of the chit chat, plus the couple's new photoshoot, inside....

When Tamera Mowry--twin sis to Tia Mowry--married Fox correspondent Adam Housley, she did so without seeing any color.  Check ut what she had to say about their interracial love:

ESSENCE.COM: You are no longer a single lady. Congrats on the big wedding! What’s married life like?
TAMERA MOWRY: It’s amazing! I feel like I have a lot more strength, and I have this person who has my back, and no matter what he’s going to be there for me. That just in itself makes me feel a lot more confident and a lot more safe. It feels amazing -- it really, really does. Adam and I, we haven’t lived together, so we’re going through that right now. Moving is challenging, but it’s rewarding. That’s the best I can describe it. Because once you go through a challenging situation then you overcome it you’re like “yes, we can do this." Adam has to do most of the moving so I kind of feel sorry for him in that sense. He’s moving into my place and one of the main things that we’re going through right now is that I don’t want him to feel like a visitor. It’s our place. We’re kind of going through the transition where you say “my place” and then you’re like, “no, wait, it’s our place.” Plus, saying “my husband”, that feels amazing too. There’s something that just goes through your body when you say those words.

 

ESSENCE.COM: Do you have any advice for women considering dating outside of their race who may be apprehensive about it?
TAMERA: Well, I always find these questions so interesting, because I’m a product of an interracial marriage -- and I never really grew up seeing color. I honestly realized that my dad was White when someone told me in middle school. They’re like, “Oh your dad’s White?” I’m like, “Oh, my gosh, he really is White.” I knew what race was, but it didn’t matter to me. Yes we are an interracial couple. The thing is we do still deal with that. People always question that. If anything, it hurts, but we do have more people supporting us than making stupid comments. We kind of just ignore it and focus on the positive. Love is love and a lot of times people might be in the situation they’re in because they put barriers up. Like some people only want to date a model, or an actor, or an athlete. You’re only limiting yourself. Open up to what’s out there because God made us all.

She seems so uber happy and in love.  Check out Essence.com for the entire interview.

And Tamera's also featured in the new Get Married magazine with a new fun & gorgeous photoshoot with wedding dresses and her hubby Adam:

The couple said during the shoot: "I call him Housley. If I call him Adam, he knows he's in trouble." "She never calls me Adam." "Riiiiiiight."  

Fabulous.  And pics of her in different wedding dresses for the shoot:

The "Tia & Tamera" star's full interview will be in the new issue of Get Married on stands now.

Why is there so much

Why is there so much negativity because of someone's choice to date outside their race? It doesn't have nothing to do with you. If that's what they like and God has blessed them to find eachother...then so be it. Work on yourself and just hope someone finds you..It's alot of jealousy here I've noticed. OMG

So she didnt know her dad was

So she didnt know her dad was white till 12 (middle school)!?!? GTFOH!...but then again maybe its different when you have $$...
anonymous's picture

I cannot believe that she did

I cannot believe that she did not "realize" her father was white until she was in middle school. I guess from a year old until twelve, she walked around with her eyes closed talking with her father.

Some of you people are sooo

Some of you people are sooo ignorant. CAN YOU READ? She said her DAD is white...MEANING THAT IS MARRIED WITHIN ONE OF HER PARENT'S RACE (not that it matters anyway)... also why does NOBODY question when numerous/majority of black men date outside of their ENTIRE race and what advice to give etc. She was right...God made us all. Also maybe she was willing to get with a black man but did anybody even ask her if there were any decent offers-hence why she's prob with white. I'm sure alot of black/mixed raced women would marry black men but unfortunately we often are never THEIR FIRST preference of race, so we do what we have to do which is MOVE ON TO MORE MATURE MINDED MEN WHO'LL TREAT US WITH RESPECT! Oh and for the record, I have NEVER dated outside of my race....YET and I will never say never as I don't intend on waiting forever for a black man to settle down properly. MAY GOD BLESS THEIR MARRIAGE.

Did you all ever notice that

Did you all ever notice that it was possible that she might marry a white man and her twin sister marry a black man being that they are half white/black. They both stayed within their race. Congratulations to both Tia and Tamera. I'm happy if you're happy.

Why does it matter who one

Why does it matter who one marries? That's the problem with this country too many people concerned with who people are marrying instead of minding their own. I cannot wait until the day that this world becomes 100% mixed that way no one can no longer talk about skin tone.

don't hold ur fuckin breath,

don't hold ur fuckin breath, the world will never be all mixed and even if it were there would still be skin color variations

I'm black my husband is

I'm black my husband is white. Neither of us had ever dated outside our race, but we trusted each other enough to try. I'm so happy we did. I feel blessed. Color is of no consequence to the heart. Two beautiful beige children has come from our union. I wish everyone could be so happy.

how stupid of u to point out

how stupid of u to point out the color of ur children, as if they wouldn't be just as beautiful if her were of 2 black parents, ur comment is one reason many people hate interracial dating, because a large number who indulge make it seem like it's better than dating someone of ur own race (black men do that especially)

What Tamera meant when she

What Tamera meant when she said to not look at the color of person's skin. Is that you shouldn't stop yourself from being with the person you love just because they're a different race than you. She and her husband look happy together and I wish them the best! :) PS: just because her father is white doesn't mean she isn't black. She is still considered black. Also she did the smart thing like her mother and got herself a good white man unlike you dumb bitches who are sitting here complaining about how "Black men don't wanna date black women" UM! Last time I checked there are so many different races out there especially Italian men who adore black women. While you all are sitting here being baby mamas and never wives my black ass is gonna go find myself a good NON-BLACK MAN peace out!

the interracial relationships

the interracial relationships between blacks and whites are more differcult than with other interracial relationships because of the ugly history that blacks and whites have. Those four hundred years of slavery, not to mention the the miscarriages of justice since slavery can't be swept under the rug like it never happened. Those who say they are colorblind or they don't see color are major supect.
Anonymous's picture

I sincerely hope that what

I sincerely hope that what Tamera meant was that she looks beyond color, not that she honestly doesn't see it. There's nothing wrong with acknowledging that I am a black woman or that someone is Asian or Latino, etc. There is a history and a culture and an experience that coincides with one's race/ethnicity and people need to understand that. With that said, one's race/ethnicity should not be the single defining quality about them, nor should one's race be used as a tool to discriminate against them. It may be a delicate balance of acknowledging/not acknowledging race, but trust me, it can be done. Sadly, what I've experienced with some IR couples is that they espouse this colorblind credo, but the reality is that they need to open their eyes and have open and honest dialogues about race. I've seen too many instances of black friends be offended by their non-black significant other, and rather than discuss it with them, they sulk to me, because they don't want to disrupt the so-called harmony of their "colorblind" coupledom. What kind of love is that?

You are my new best friend in

You are my new best friend in my head! This comment is dead on. Being "colorblind" is a meaningless concept to me. Every single day we see and acknowledge the differences that exist amongst individuals in this world, and the proper reaction is to embrace these differences and share our varied experiences with one another. I am in an interracial relationship and loving my boyfriend means that I understand and accept that part of who he is stems from being a White man in America, though that definitely doesn't define him. And for him to love me, he understands and accepts that part of who I am stems from being a Black woman in America, though it doesn't define me. I want to see color and for everyone to be appreciated for exactly who they are. Whatever that may be. I'm done..carry on.

look at that picture, if she

look at that picture, if she had not told you she had a white father you would never know. Anyone would perceive her as black. Blacks (most), have been mixed with white blood from slavery, since white men raped black women, and they were always considered black and treated as such.

@ Swirlie Curlies you are

@ Swirlie Curlies you are right, besides whites hate blacks, they want to dilute or eliminate you, they just tolerate and pretend. If you have money or fame they tolerate a little more. * Fact*
