Tamera Mowry: I’ve Been Called ‘White Man’s Whore’ For Interracial Marriage

Tamera Mowry: I've Been Called 'White Man's Whore' For Interracial Marriage

Tamera Mowry said she has been called a “white man’s whore” and endured other racist comments online for her interracial marriage with a Fox News correspondent..

Mowry has been married to correspondent Adam Housley for the past three years, and said during that time she has been bombarded with racism and ignorance online.

She opened up about the torrid of racist comments during an interview with Oprah Winfrey, wiping tears as she spoke about it.

“I’ve never experienced so much hate ever in my life,” Tamera Mowry told Oprah Winfrey. “I get called, ‘White man’s whore,’ the new one, ‘Back in the day, you cost $300 but now you’re giving it to ‘em for free.’ Stuff that, me as a person, could never even fathom. I can’t even think of these words. It’s very hard for me to think of it because I’m a product of it. My mom is a beautiful black woman and my dad is an amazing white man. I grew up seeing a family. I didn’t grow up seeing, ‘ooh a n***er with a white person!’ So it’s very shocking to go through this.”

But Tamera Mowry said the comments have not gotten her her down, saying she is proud to be in the relationship based on love.

“I love my husband so much,” Mowry said. “I love my family. I love our dynamic.”

Tamera Mowry and her sister Tia recently announced that they would no longer be continuing their reality show, Tia & Tamera, which launched on Style Network in 2011. They did not divulge the reason for leaving the show.

The show featured the Mowrys in their home life, including Tamera and husband Adam Housley.

“Wanted to say Thank You for all the love and support. But most of all welcoming me, my husband, n my son into your homes for 3 seasons,” TIa Mowry wrote in announcing the conclusion of the show.

While Tamera Mowry may be staying out of the public eye for a bit, her sister Tia recently developed the pilot for a comedy series called Instant Mom(working title) that was picked up for a 13-episode season order by NickMom.

    It doesn't matter who you love, it's that you are loved, and loving someone else and loving each other, don't worry about ignorant people they have been around for ages, they where born ignorant, live ignorant and will most likely die ignorant, all ways remember that some people are small minded and will forever live that way, these people are called HATER'S, that are uncomfortable with themselves and everyone around them, they are only permitted to be around ignorant people who think and act like them simply and only because no one with a real brain want's to be bothered w

    As much as alot of people get online, alot of people are also aware of the internet especially being used as a safe haven for a bunch of cowardice losers with no life, who look to mess with others out of boredom or cuz they feel like crap. Honestly instead of being sad by their remarks, you really have to laugh at them and list all the good things you have in your own life because odds are, these trolls in reality are just miserable in some way.

    Tamera dry your tears honey your husband and baby is BEAUTIFUL AND SO ARE YOU! Black Men have been dating & marrying light and nonblack Women for centuries. Than will make a public announcement how they HATE BW. As soon as BW expand their dating & marrying options, we're whores? What do BW suppose to do while BM demonstrate this type of behavior, sit on the sideline cheering for BM? UMMMMM NO BW SHOULD FOLLOW BM leadership and do the same. From Cornel West to Several Pan African Leaders Angola's First President and Kwame Nkurumah to Hill Harper & Jesse Jackson Jr. (including many others) ALL married or date White Women after preaching to BW for centuries about Black Love. BW better wake up and stop following behind BM and FOCUS ON THEIR OWN HAPPINESS AND PLEASE STOP PROTECTING THEM B/C THEY HAVE NEVER DID IT FOR YOU BW!

    I feel so sorry for her but i have experienced that double standard when i have dated white men in the past, you don't see the hoopla when NBA , NFL or ballplayer show off their white wife's. Black women are in general the most loyal to black men but you cannot say the same for the black man. I say love who the hell you want and tell the people who don't like it to step off
