Hosts of the Daytime TV talk show, “The Real” have reached out to their fellow host, Tamera Mowry-Housley and her husband, Adam Housley, who lost their niece, Alaina Housley in last Wednesday’s California shooting.


After hours of searching for Alaina in the aftermath of the Borderline bar shooting, Tamera and Adam, on Thursday, confirmed the sad news of their niece’s death in a heartbreaking statement. Since then, condolence messages have poured out from people around the world.


Among those people are Tamera’s colleagues: Loni Love, Jeannie Mai, and Adrienne Bailon-Houghton.

On November 8, Love shared a photo initially posted by Adam while they were still searching for Alaina. Love then wrote the sad update:

“Unfortunately Alaina was one of the victims in the mass shooting.. please keep The Housley’s in your prayers at this time. Positive thoughts and prayers to all the families right now waiting to hear about their loved ones from the #borderlinemassshooting”



The next day, Jeannie and Adrienne followed suit. Jeannie revealed the heart-rending conversation she shared with Tamera before the horrible news was confirmed. She said Tamera told her:

"I'm gonna keep praying Jeannie. I've called every hospital ten times...maybe she's just unconscious. She could have escaped the shooting and is just without her phone. Keep praying."



Jeannie continued, highlighting shooting statistics in the United States:

“Hours later, the devastating news is confirmed. I will never forget the sound of my friend's despair, how her cries amplified the anguish surrounding every family of the 12 victims murdered. In 2018, there has been a total of 307 mass shootings in America. And tonight, I feel the reverberating sorrow of every friend and family member affected by the horrific, senseless nightmare that is gun violence.”

Adrienne also mourned the “sweet angel taken too soon,” adding that she was praying for every family hurting from the “senseless violence.”



Cast and crew of “The Real” also sent their deepest condolences and prayers to the Housleys and all the victims’ families during the difficult time.

Tamera and Adam had earlier said in a statement:

“Our hearts are broken. We just learned that our niece Alaina was one of the victims of last night’s shooting at Borderline bar in Thousand Oaks. Alaina was an incredible young woman with so much life ahead of her and we are devastated that her life was cut short in this manner. We thank everyone for your prayers and ask for privacy at this time.”



The Pepperdine student was one of at least 12 people killed when Ian Long, a former Marine Corps veteran, opened fire at the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks, California on November 7.

Alaina, 18, is said to have gone with a group of other girls for a college line dancing event hosted at the venue.

According to PEOPLE, others slain in the tragedy include a college freshman, a recent college graduate, and an aspiring Army recruit whom his father called his “best friend.”

Sgt. Ron Helus, a 29-year law enforcement veteran, also died in the line of duty, and Long, the shooter, is believed to have killed himself.
