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 just 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!

You know what? Sometimes, you've got to push a few coins aside and determine in your mind that you're going to invest into your sex life (if you had a sex jar, this would be easier to do, by the way. You can read more about what that is all about here). If you're someone who is totally down to do that, but you don't have a clue where to begin, boy have you come to the right place! Between the joy of being a writer who sometimes gets samples sent to me, the constant research that I do for the couples I work with and having folks shout-out certain items semi-often, I've compiled a list of 12 sex-related items that may seem random AF (a pun is kind of intended there) and, at the same time, can make sex so much better between you and your partner. Where's your pad at? You're definitely gonna wanna take note.

Recently, I was talking to a friend of mine about someone who once told me that they had an annual week-long summer rendezvous that lasted for over 15 years with someone else. Yep — this individual would meet up with another person who lived in a different state, solely to have sex for a week straight, and then return to their city as if nothing ever happened. According to them, the only reason why this ritual romp eventually came to an end is because the other person decided to get serious about someone else; however, it wasn't until it ended that the person who told me the story realized how attached they actually had become to their sex partner (a cautionary tale). After I completed my lil' tale, my friend simply said, "Oh, I do that s — t every cuffing season. There are some people who I only talk to around this time of year, we f — k around and then that's that until the season comes around again."
