Tamera Mowry-Housely Leaving 'The Real' Is A Reminder That You Don’t Have To Work Somewhere Forever

Living the life of your dreams and securing a bag are not mutually exclusive.

Celebrity News

There's a thin line between paying your bills and pursuing your passion and I don't know who needs to hear this, but you can do boffum.

Living the life of your dreams and securing a bag are not mutually exclusive and if your professional environment is no longer serving you in that capacity, there's no shame in exploring your options, sis. Just ask Tamera Mowry-Housley, who announced that she would be ending her 7-year hosting gig at The Real to spend more time with her family and pursue new career opportunities. She wrote on Instagram:

"For seven years, my home and heart has been at The Real. The friendships that I've made there will last a lifetime, and the people that I've had the blessing to interview have changed my life for the better. I'm so proud of what all the ladies and I have accomplished there, including two well-deserved NAACP Image Awards and a Daytime Emmy. However, all good things must come to an end. And it's with a bittersweet smile that I announce that I am moving on from The Real."

One of the hardest parts about leaving a job is saying goodbye to the ones who held you up while you were there and Tamera could totally relate. In the post, the star went on to thank her fellow hosts and shared her appreciation for the lifetime bond that they've managed to secure with another.

"To my fellow hosts, I love you, I will miss you, and I will always be there for you. Thank you for teaching me, supporting me, and loving all of me. Sisters forever. I'll be rooting for you, as I look forward to spending more time with my family, pursuing amazing new opportunities, and embarking on the next chapter of my life."

Tamera, who has recently decided to shift her attention to her acting career and is starring in the upcoming Hallmark movie, Christmas Carnival, is proof that although a job may be good for a season, you don't have to work anywhere forever. The announcement came only weeks after Tamera's former co-host Amanda Seales departed from the show after experiencing differences with producers. Amanda shared in an interview:

"It doesn't feel good to my soul to be at a place where I cannot speak to my people the way they need to be spoken to. And where the people who are speaking to me in disparaging ways, are not being handled. I'm not in a space where, I can as a full Black woman, have my voice and my co-workers also have their voices, and where the people at the top are not respecting the necessity for Black voices to be at the top, too."

We're wishing both of these ladies all of the luck in their future endeavors!

Your October 2022 Horoscopes Are All About Finding Flow & Alignment

October is a month of balance. With some energy moving direct and some energy moving retrograde, there is a middle ground to find this month between what is unfolding and what you are letting go. The month begins with Mercury officially moving out of retrograde and going direct in Virgo. Mercury this month is cleaning house and sprucing things up after the somewhat tyrant energy it’s brought over the past few weeks. Now that Mercury is direct, there is less interruption when it comes to daily flow and plans, and this is a good month to start setting things into motion.

The Myth Of The Sex Drive & How Libido Changes From Your 20s, 30s, 40s & 50s

No one prepared me for how horny I would be in my late 30s. All the elders in my life prepared me for random chin hairs, weight gain, and menopause but no one said a mumbling word about my sex drive. Something happens the closer you get to forty. I went from wanting sex here and there to wanting it all the damn time. Is there a support group for this? I can’t be the only one who has the sex drive of the Energizer Bunny. Upon my research to figure out why I felt like a cat in heat, I discovered several theories surrounding women and our sex drives–including one that says the concept of having a sex drive is a myth altogether.

Black woman with an afro and tube top laughing

If you have been on social media for any significant amount of time this year you may have come across women saying that they are in their “villain era.” For these women, being a villain means embracing the negativity and judgment from others that comes when you say “no” to people, and living your life unapologetically. For them, being a villain means letting the chips fall where they may when you no longer allow other people’s ideas about you to restrict you from living the life that you want and deserve.
