Mowry-Housley has been with the show for six seasons. However, she recently announced her departure through an Instagram post after various news outlets started to pick up on the story.
“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,” she stated. “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.”
A representative for the production company Telepictures told People magazine “We fully support Tamera’s decision to spend more time with her family, even if that means she’s not one of our hosts on The Real. She will always be part of The Real family. We look forward to developing future projects with her and welcoming her back as a regular guest on the show.”
Mowry-Housley ended her farwell by adding “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.”
