Tamera Mowry quits 'The Real' after six seasons, fans want Tisha Campbell to replace her
‘The Real’ witnessed another co-host exit the show as Tamera Mowry announced on July 13 that she was leaving the Daytime Emmy award-winning talk show. She took to Instagram to share a long note, in which she’s cherished her journey with ‘The Real’ and talked about finding new opportunities.
In the caption of her latest Instagram post, Mowry remembered her dear friend Naya Rivera and noted that she had no intention of making the big announcement, especially after learning about the tragic death of the ‘Glee’ star. However, she wanted to let her fans know about her quitting the show before they heard it from other sources.
In the note she writes, "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. 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,” she adds further.
Mowry’s fans took to Twitter to react to the shocking news, with many saying they would stop watching the show in her absence. One wrote, “Look... I don’t know how The Real plans on moving forward from this tbh... they fired Tamar... hired another co-host who left and now Tamera.. one of the original hosts is leaving... wtf. This is definitely going to be interesting.” Another, suspecting the reason behind her quitting the show tweeted, "Something is up with The Real. I understand Amanda leaving, but now Tamera... something ain't right. I ain't got time to watch a bunch of new people. I'm out.”
Meanwhile, fans of the show are already suggesting a replacement for Mowry to keep the talk show going. "@TheRealDaytime PLEASE BRING TISHA CAMPBELL ON AS A HOST TO REPLACE AMANDA AND TAMERA!” wrote one on Twitter. "Though I'm sad to see both Amanda & Tamera gone from The Real, it's time to shake up the table! A few suggestions...Tisha Campbell, MJ Rodriguez or Angelica Ross (it's time to make daytime history!) Tia Mowry (I know this will never happen but she has sass!)” added another.
