Tamera Mowry-Housley Leaving ‘The Real’ After 7 Years

Tamera Mowry-Housley announced her exit fromThe Real on Monday.

“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 announced that I am moving on from The Real,” she said in a statement posted on her social media.

She concluded: “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.”

The announcement was posted the same day that actress Naya Rivera, Mowry’s family friend, was confirmed dead after her body was discovered at Lake Piru in California.

“I had NO intention to talk about this today, especially in light of the news of my dear friend Naya, but now some reports are coming out and I’d rather you hear it from me first,” the Sister Sister star wrote in the caption.

Mowry-Housley has co-hosted The Real since it premiered in 2013.

‘Insecure’ to end with season 5

HBO has announced that Insecure will wrap up with the upcoming fifth season. The critically-acclaimed comedy was renewed last year, in May.

Issa Rae, Insecure‘s lead and co-creator, spoke to Deadline and revealed that it was always her and Prentice Penny‘s (co-creator) intention to end at this mark. “We always planned to tell this story through five seasons, but we couldn’t have made it this far without the tremendous support of our audience,” she said. “I feel blessed beyond measure to bring our characters’ stories to an end, on-screen at least.”

“Issa has turned insecurity into an iconic form of comedy,” said Amy Gravitt, executive vice president of HBO Programming. “The show is as incisive as it is heartfelt, and it has resonated strongly with its audience because of the deeply personal work that Issa, Prentice, Melina, the cast, and the writers have put into it. This talented team has conceived a brilliant final season for ‘Insecure’ and we look forward to having many more stories to tell with this singular group of collaborators.”

The fifth (and final season) featuring Rae’s co-stars Yvonne Orji, Jay Ellis, Natasha Rothwell, and Amanda Seales is set to go into production later this month, and, according to HBO, will air later this year.
