Tia Mowry has been forced to slam pregnancy rumors on more than one occasion, but now, the beauty is speaking out about body shaming.

During a recent appearance on HuffPost Live, the actress revealed that she is not pregnant, rather, happy.

“I’ve gained these extra 10 [or] 15 pounds because of my cooking show,” she explained. “I’m just enjoying life, and when I want to drop the pounds, I will, but right now I’m happy with who I am.”

She continued, “But it is a form of body shaming, I will say that, and it’s pretty unfortunate …We live in a society that is so obsessed with being perfect…why can’t we just be us?”

The 37-year-old added, “We need to be more supportive with body images, especially with women, showing that all sizes are beautiful. And I’m talking about in magazines, advertisement in regard to what’s sexy and what’s not sexy. We all need to be a little more supportive of each other. I think if we start there, we’ll see a difference.”

Last month, a gossip website reported that Mowry was in her third trimester. Clearly, that was false. And back in July, Mowry slammed pregnancy rumors via Instagram with a message that read:

“FYI. For all the people that think I’m pregnant. I’m NOT just enjoying life and eating and cooking some great food! Thanks again I repeat I AM NOT PREGNANT,” she wrote on Instagram, including a photo of a pregnancy test that reads: “Just fat.”

Tia and her husband, Cory Hardrict, are parents to 4-year-old, Cree.

Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
