Ahead of its seventh season, The Real is losing an original co-host. Tamera Mowry-Housley has just announced that she is exiting the popular talk show.
Housley made the unexpected announcement on Monday (Jul. 13) via Instagram after Daily Mail broke the news of her departure.
“For seven years, my home and heart has been at The Real. The friendships that I’ve made there will last a lifetime, and the people that I’ve had the blessing 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 announced that I am moving on from The Real.”
It has not been revealed why Housley decided to leave the show. However, the veteran actress did share that she wanted to spend more time with her family and is excited about her new chapter.
She also expressed her support for the remaining co-hosts, Loni Love, Jeannie Mai, and Adrienne Bailon Houghton, calling them her sisters.
“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.”
