Tamera Mowry Hurt Over “White Man’s Whore” Comments

By  | 

Swirling hasn’t been easy for 35-year-old Tamera Mowry. On an upcoming episode of Oprah: Where Are They Now?, the actress details some of the outrageous hate she endured after marrying Fox News Channel correspondent Adam Housley in 2011.

“White man’s whore,” and “Back in the day, you cost $300, but now, you’re giving it away for free” are among the comments Mowry received on social media after marrying outside of her race.

“See, this is where I get emotional, because it’s hurtful,” Mowry explains in an interview with Lady O. “Because when my husband and I are so openly — and we’re fine with showing — is love. Love. But people choose to look past love and spew hate. That’s what hurts me, because I’ve never experienced so much hate ever in my life, ever.”

Mowry, who grew up in a biracial family, says she’s baffled by some of the things people have said about her and her partner. “My mom is a beautiful black woman and my dad is an amazing white man, and I grew up seeing a family,” she says. “I love my husband so much, I love our family, I love our dynamic. I’m proud to be in the relationship that I am because it’s based on love,” Mowry says. “Pure love.”

Oprah: Where Are They Now? airs Fridays at 8 p.m. ET on OWN.
