“The Real” co-hosts, Tamera Mowry and Loni Love have a relationship beyond the cameras, and recently, Mowry shared the Halloween costume gift her daughter got from Loni. Not too long ago, Mowry’s husband, Housley, also called Loni his “sister.”
In the October 28 Instagram post, Mowry’s daughter, Ariah, was pictured in a ladybug costume consisting of a black top, red tutu, and strap-on back. Mowry also shares a five-year-old son, Aden with her husband.
With her hair pulled up in a messy bun, three-year-old Ariah struck a pose on the stairs looking adorable.
Mowry, 40, expressed gratitude to “Auntie” Loni in the caption, saying:
“Thanks Auntie @comiclonilove for this costume. Ariah can’t wait to wear it, and I know I have to be a lady bug too! Again, thanks Loniiiiiii”
Loni also reposted the photo on her Instagram page yesterday, and called Ariah “My love bug!!!”
Although they sometimes have contrasting opinions on their talk show, the “Sister, Sister” alum and Loni have a healthy friendship that connects their families. Last year, when Mowry’s husband, Adam Housley had to be away from home a lot, it was Loni who stepped in to help out.
Housley, a Fox News correspondent at the time, covered the Florida hurricanes, the Las Vegas shooting, and the California fires. In a heartwarming Instagram post, Housley called the comedian his “sister:”
“The last few weeks have been rough. I’ve never been apart from my family for so long and yet I am so blessed to come home to my family and my home. To my wife @tameramowrytwo you are a rock. To @comiclonilove you are a sister I never had...my kids adore you and thank you for being there while I am covering such heartbreak.”
Housley left Fox News in August, but before then, was plagued with allegations of being a racist. His wife used her show’s platform to clear up the misconception multiple times, the most recent being in September.
Flanked by her co-hosts, Loni, Jeannie Mai, and Adrienne Houghton, Mowry said:
“There are some people who think that my husband is racist because he worked for a certain channel. I’m gonna look in that camera right there and let everybody know my husband is not a racist.”
Mowry, who is half-black, half-white, also said in April that “The Real” has been successful because they say things as they are.
“We cut through the B.S. We just say it like it is,” she offered. “We’re not politically correct, and I think now more than ever people want to hear that.”
Apart from pointing out the show’s promotion of diversity, the Emmy award-winning host added:
“We get to come to work, be authentically ourselves, and people resonate with that. They just want to see real people with their real thoughts. When women talk about things that they have gone through and overcome, that’s the only way we can actually learn.”
Meanwhile, there were rumors in May that Loni had been fired from “The Real” and replaced with a white woman.
Loni was, however, quick to shut down the rumors, saying on the show, “It’s totally not true, you guys.”
