Tamera Mowry-Housley is standing up for her man.
He Worked For Fox News
For years rumors have swirled that her husband – Adam Housley – is racist, despite being married to a biracial woman.
Housley worked as a senior correspondent for conservative network Fox News for seventeen years. Many liberals believe Fox News is a racist and ignorant organization. But the former Sister, Sister actress vehemently denied her husband is racist on her show The Real.
“There are some people who think that my husband is racist because he worked for a certain channel,'”Tamera, 40, explained on her show, The Real.“I’m gonna look in that camera right there and let everybody know my husband is not a racist!”
Tamera’s Emmy award winning journalist hubby recently left the network to spend more time with his family.
In a statement to Adweek, Fox News President Jay Wallace thanked Adam for his devotion to his job.
“We thank Adam for his many years of service – his passion for storytelling, professionalism and dedication to journalism made our reporting stand out on countless stories throughout his tenure. We wish him and his family the very best.”
She’s Received Hateful Comments
This isn’t the first time Tamera has had to defend her marriage.
1n 2014, the 90’s icon broke down in tears over hateful comments she receives over her interracial marriage. Appearing on “Oprah: Where Are They Now?” with her twin sister Tia, she admitted, “I’ve never experienced so much hate, ever, in my life.”
The former reality star says she’s been called a “white man’s whore,” among other things. Cruel commenters even told her, “Back in the day, you cost $300, but now, you’re giving it away for free.”
Mowry-Housley grew up in a biracial family and says the words cut deep. “My mom is a beautiful black woman and my dad is an amazing white man, and I grew up seeing a family,” she said. But she says the worst comment she’s received involves her twin sister Tia, who is married to black actor Cory Hardrict.
“They say, ‘Oh, Tia’s a true black woman because she married a black man,'” Mowry-Housley recalled. “Oh – I’m less of a black person because I married white?”
But the successful TV personality doesn’t let the negativity get in the way of her relationship with Housley. “I love my husband so much, I love our family, I love our dynamic. I’m proud to be in the relationship that I am because it’s based on love,” Mowry-Housley said. “Pure love.”
Tamera and Adam married in 2011, and together they have a son Aden – five, and daughter Ariah – three.
