Actress and talk show host Tamera Mowry-Housley announced Monday that she’s leaving The Real after being a co-host for seven years.

In a post to her social channels, Mowry shared she didn’t plan to share the news today in light of the death of actress Naya Rivera, but that she needed to make her own statement since reports were coming out.

“For seven years, my home and heart has been at The Real,” wrote Mowry. “The friendships that I’ve made there will last a lifetime, and the people that I’ve had the blessing to interview have changed my life for the better […] It’s with a bittersweet smile that I announce that I am moving on from The Real.”

To her cohosts she wrote, “To my fellow hosts, I love you, I will miss you, and I will always be there for you. Thank you for teaching me, supporting me, and loving all of me. Sisters forever.”

Mowry will be the third host to depart the show following after Tamar Braxton, who was fired in 2016, and Amanda Seales, who was hired and chose to leave during the show’s most recent season.

The Sister Sister actress will now be focusing on her family and other opportunities which will hopefully include another project with her siblings Tia Mowry-Hardrict and Tahj Mowry.

The last few months have been unprecedented in loss and pain, but in the midst, stillness, self-discovery and realignment have occurred for so many.

Tamera Mowry-Housley will be missed on The Real; nevertheless, hopefully she will find success in all that’s next for her.
