Things got interesting on the set of the famous talk show when the discussion turned towards Tamera’s obsession for her now 2 ½-year-old daughter Ariah’s skin to be brown like hers. Tamara shares her second child with her white husband Adam Housely and she made no qualms about disclosing her inner thoughts to her co-hosts about what she hoped her daughter would look like.

“I wanted Ariah to really look like me. Like, everything, everything. I think she has my skin color and my eye color.”

To this, co-host Adrienne Bailon added,

“You prayed for that! I remember! She was like, ‘Lord, let her be brown. Let her have black hair.’”

It also came up in the discussion that while Ariah inherited some of her mother’s traits, she also inherited her father’s head. Tamera explained,

“She has a big head. Adam has a big head. But I love Adam’s big head”

As honest as she was, many didn’t appreciate Tamera’s candor and expressed their dismay on social media. Some accused her of being mean and insensitive while others didn’t understand how she would be in a biracial relationship and expect her daughter to have brown skin.
