They look alike, sound alike and have maintained the same initials despite marriage, but Tia Mowry-Hardrict and Tamera Mowry-Housley said the upcoming season of their reality show will prove how different they are.
“I think in season 3, my sister and I, we focus on our differences,” Tia told the Hallmark Channel. “We are very different.”
While viewers are used to seeing the sisters get along with rarely any serious conflict, the twins said things get intense this season.
“We have our biggest disagreement ever—I think even in our life—on TV,” admitted Tamera who said she’s “nervous” about what will actually air.
Serious arguments are so rare between them that it took Tia and Tamera a while to realize that they were engaged in something other than their usual sisterly squabbles.
“We didn’t even know that it was a disagreement until it happened,” said Tia.
Although there was some tension, the sisters assured fans that they’ve gotten past the drama.
“We’re fine. We love each other,” said Tamera.
The ladies have shared many of the same experiences, from having the same parents to working the same TV jobs at times, but the twins said they’ve each grown up with different perspectives and preferences.
That’s evident when it comes to their parenting styles. While both are moms to young sons, they don’t do everything the same.
“I’m more of an attachment parenting style. I co-sleep with my son,” said Tia about her son Cree who’s entered his “terrible twos.”
“He has an opinion. He’s developed a personality. It’s fun, but there are some challenges,” she said.
As for Tamera, she tackles parenthood differently.
“I’m a little bit more, they call it ‘non-parenting’ style,” she explained. “My son was sleeping in his crib at 8 weeks.”
Though they do things differently, they respect the other’s choices.
“I think our different lifestyles call for different parenting styles. I don’t think there’s a right or wrong way to parent a child,” said Tamera. “There’s a right way to parent your child for your family. There’s no right or wrong, just what’s right for you.”
Season 3 of “Tia & Tamera” premieres July 14 at 8 p.m. EST on Style.
