Tamera Mowry Is Leaving 'The Real' After 7 Years as Co-Host

Tamera Mowry has announced that she is leaving The Real after seven years as a co-host on the show.

The 42-year-old actress and television personality took to Instagram on Monday (July 13) and said she was waiting to talk about the news due to the death of Naya Rivera, but she decided to speak out after Daily Mail reported it.

“I had NO intention to talk about this today, especially in light of the news of my dear friend Naya, but now some reports are coming out and I’d rather you hear it from me first,” Tamera wrote on Instagram.

Tamera also provided this statement: “For seven years, my home and heart has been at The Real. The friendships I’ve made there will last a lifetime, and the people that I’ve been blessed to interview have changed my life for the better. I’m so proud of what all the ladies and I have accomplished there, including two well-deserved NAACP Image Awards and a Daytime Emmy. However, all good things must come to an end, and it’s with a bittersweet smile that I announce that I am moving on from The Real. 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. I’ll be rooting for you, as I look forward to spending more time with my family, pursuing amazing new opportunities, and embarking on the next chapter of my life.”

Tamera‘s younger brother Tahj Mowry used to date Naya and he professed his love for her in a moving tribute that he posted over the weekend.
