End of an era: Tamera Mowry is leaving The Real after 7 years of talk show, DailyMail.com can reveal
Mowry’s exit comes after Amanda Seales left the Fox show last month, citing the lack of black voices ‘at the top’, despite being classed as one of the most diverse daytime talk shows, featuring all the women of host color.
Fox Television Stations renewed the series for the seventh and eighth seasons with Warner Bros. Television Distribution in November, meaning the show will continue into the 2021-2022 television season without Mowrey at the table.
The show describes itself as being led by ‘bold, diverse and outspoken hosts’ who ‘brazenly say what women actually think’.

Lineup: Loni Love, Adrienne Houghton, Jeannie Mai, Tamera Mowry and Amanda Seales
Meanwhile, Seales recently said on Instagram Live about her experience on the show: ‘I’m not in a space where as a completely black woman I can have my voice and my colleagues also have their voices and where the people at the top don’t respect the necessity that black voices are also at the top. ‘
Seales later emphasized that her decision to leave had nothing to do with her co-hosts, Loni Love, Jeannie Mai, Adrienne Houghton or Mowry.
She had guest-starred several times before officially joining the talk show in January, replacing Tamar Braxton who was fired in 2016.
The show is said to surpass its competitors, such as The View on YouTube, where it has approximately two million followers.
Mowry and her identical twin sister Tia became famous on the ABC / WB sitcom Sister Sister which lasted six seasons from 1994 to 1999.
The siblings also starred in their own reality television series entitled Tia & Tamera, which aired on the Style Network in 2011 and ended after three seasons in 2013.
In 2018, Mowry took a short break from the show to mourn the loss of her 18-year-old Alaina Housley, who was tragically killed in a shooting at the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks, California.
