Tia And Tamera Mowry Open Up About Quitting Their Reality Show

According to BET Centric, the twin stars say reality TV was a lot of work.  In an interview with ESSENCE.com the sisters explained that the Style network turned into Esquire so they had the option of leaving altogether or pitching the show to another network. They decided they’d done reality TV long enough and it was time to move on. 
“We did three amazing years,” Tia Mowry-Hardrict said. “Having a camera in your home 12 months out of the year for eight hours or 12 hours a day is a lot of work. But we're moving on to other things.”  Tamera Mowry-Housley agreeed. “I had cameras when I was engaged, I had cameras when I was pregnant and then I had cameras around when I had my son. I just wanted personal private time with my family. I think that you should have balance in your life...I didn't want [my son] on camera all the time.”  Tia, 35, said her husband, actor Cory Hardrict, was ecstatic when he found out they were ending the show. Tamera, 35, added that her husband Adam Housley was super happy too.  “I know my husband was thrilled,” Tia said. “You have no idea! My husband would hide from the cameras on a regular basis. I would have to drag him. He's just an actor. He's all about being mysterious and not letting too many people know who he really is as a person. He was really just doing it for his wife and just making me happy. He did a tap dance.”  Our favorite TV twins also discussed competition between them. They said it’s really encouraging and not mean in the way it's been portrayed.  “What's unfortunate is the people outside of us put more competition on us than we do ourselves,” Tia said. “I think ever since we were little there's been this healthy competition. If I see my sister doing something or vice versa it's like 'Oh ok, I can do that too.' If I see her succeeding at it, it's encouraging.  Tamera added, “In Hollywood we actually help each other. When one of us is working, we keep the other one relevant because we look alike. If anything, I look at it from the mindset that we're only helping each other. It was always people outside our family that compared and speculated jealousy or competition.”
