It's a good day to be one of the Mowry twins. I've adored them both since Sister Sister, so naturally I was obsessed with their reality show on Oxygen. I guess I need to start checking out Nickelodeon and DVR-ing the The Real to get my fix of Tia and Tamera.
Tia has been starring in the show Instant Mom on Nick at Nite, and it's been wildly successful for the network. Meanwhile Tamera's talk show The Real has been picked up by BET and Fox for a two-year run after proving to be a hit in its test markets.
There are some reality stars that sit back and let things happen, and then there are the ones who are constantly part of the hustle. I have a lot of respect for those who are working hard to promote themselves and not just leaking salacious stories to the tabloids for attention (cough, cough, a certain Teen Mom).
While I don't necessarily want to be biffles with Tamar Braxton (I'll be honest, she scares me a bit–I'm intimidated), the star of Tamar and Vince and Braxton Family Values is on top of things. She gets done what needs to be done, and she enjoys the fruits of her labor along the way. There is a lot to be said for that!
Tamera and Tamar will be joined by three other women – Adrienne Bailon (best known for The Cheetah Girls and dating Rob Kardashian), Jeannie Mai (host of Style network's How Do I Look), and comedian Loni Love. According to Deadline, The Real will be a panel style talkfest similar to The View and The Talk, but "with a younger and entirely ethnic panel."
