Diet Pills And Tragic Fashion Choices — Tia Mowry Tells All!
Tia Mowry wooed audiences for five years on her and twin, Tamera’s hit American 90’s sitcom, Sister Sister. But while the sisters were landing on magazine covers and covering posters plastered around rooms across America, Tia was taking diet pills to stay looking good.
A vulnerable Mowry recalls the days trying to remain thin in her new cookbook, Whole New You: How Real Food Transforms Your Life for a Healthier More Gorgeous You. “I’m not proud of it,” she writes. “I got skinny, but the pills caused my heart to race, and I knew in my gut that I was hurting myself.”
According to the actress, she stopped taking the pills in college and is now healthier than ever.
But while admitting to the pressures of Hollywood, the star is also revealing how her fashion choices have developed since starring on the TGIF program.
She recently shared with Entertainment Tonight’s Nischelle Turner, “When I look back at the show, I go through the awkward stages of, ‘Oh my God! What were you wearing? Oh geez, Tia! What were you thinking.'”
The 38-year-old’s cookbook is available now.
