Tia Mowry Takes Charge On The Cover Of Rolling Out Magazine!!!


Tia Mowry is looking sexy and confident on the new cover of Rolling Out Magazine! She definitely has a reason though! She recently landed a starring role on Nickelodeon's new sitcom 'Instant Mom,' her business ventures with her twin sister are taking off, and she has an adorable baby and cute husband at home! Tia is definitely living the good life. In her interview with Rolling Out Magazine she discussed what motherhood has taught her, what attracted her to her role on 'Instant Mom,' and more! 




On playing a young step mother on Nickelodeon's new sitcom 'Instant Mom'

"I like the family dynamic of the show. I'm a mom and to be able to play a mom for the first time on television, I was really excited about that. And she's not just any mom, she's a smart, sassy, hip step mom. I liked the whole angle of that. I thought the writing was very smart and I really enjoy working with kids."

On what attracted her to the role of Stephanie on 'Instant Mom'

"What attracted me to the role in the script was I felt that there was a void. [There was]  a lack of programming that families could sit down and watch. Right now, you see television shows that are predominantly focused on kids that adults can't watch or shows for adults that kids can't watch. It kinda causes this division within the family when you're talking about sitting down and watching television as a family. "



On the show providing diversity

"I have to credit Nickelodeon for allowing diversity. And what that said, this isn't a show that just for  African Americans. This is a show that sees no color and that's what reminded me of 'Sister, Sister.' It was universal. It was a show about a black family that black families could relate to, but not only black families--all families. I think that's what makes a smart show because that's what the world is. We're interacting with different cultures and different races. Isn't television supposed to depict reality? I felt very privileged and excited to be a part of a show that shows African Americans in a positive relatable light, and smart kids. I thank Nickelodeon for allowing that platform."

On doing the reality show 'Tia & Tamera'

"I don't necessarily focus on misconceptions that the public has of me. I live my life for myself and my family. I don't allow other people's opinions and perceptions of me to validate who I am. But when you do a reality show, such as 'Tia & Tamera,' I thin though it is a reality show, it's still television. It's still a show. I am allowing cameras to come in and see my life, but it's just a window of my life. It's not my life. So when people make judgements based off of what they see on television, I think that's unhealthy."



On the public's perception of her

"I think people think [I have] a strong personality. But just part of me, it's not all of me. I do have a sensitive side. I have an edgy side--but I also have a side that likes to be a princess sometimes. When you do reality shows, people tend to put you in a box. People would depict me as the more aggressive twin or I'm the stronger personality between the two. But it's very scary to allow other people's opinion and views of you to validate who you are [so] it's definitely not something that I focus on."

On being a working mom

"It's very hard to balance family and career. When you are a mother, it's hard in general. Being a mother is a 24-hour job--you're constantly taking care of another person.But when you're a working mom and wife, it adds other pieces to the pie. I have all these pieces that I have to try and cut evenly and divide. But some parts of my life are going to have a bigger piece or a smaller piece.The key is prioritizing those pieces. "

On what mother hood has taught her

"Motherhood has taught me that I really am a patient person [laughter]. I think being a mom, you have to learn how to embrace patience. And that's the positive side. "
