Tamera Mowry defended her husband Adam Housley for working for Fox News on her talk show The Real
Tamera Mowry-Housley is standing by her man.
The mom of two, 40, discussed the assumption that her husband Adam Housley is racist because of his affiliation with Fox News, whose primetime commentary tends to be conservative-leaning, during her talk show The Real on Tuesday morning. The network hired Housley as a Los Angeles-based reporter in 2001, but he left last month, according to Politico.
“There are some people who think that my husband is racist because he worked for a certain channel,” said the former child star, who is half-black. “I’m gonna look in that camera right there and let everybody know my husband is not a racist.”
The comment came as the Real hosts also discussed Les Moonves’ ousting from CBS following sexual misconduct allegations and his wife Julie Chen’s decision to leave her show, The Talk, seemingly as a result.
“My heart goes out to her. Because one, she still probably loves him,” Adrienne Bailon Houghton said. “I think of my marriage, and I think of, ‘Oh my god, god forbid something like this were to ever happen,’ I think you have to do some soul-searching, and the soul-searching has to be, one, do you think he really did it?”
Then, fellow host Loni Love cut in. “My heart goes out to the victims, okay?” she said, adding, “There’s 12 women accusing him.”
Love, 47, continued, “I think it’s appropriate that she leaves. I think it’s appropriate because … to me, you’re taking about women’s issues, you’re talking about things … it would look hypocritical.”

But Houghton, 34, pushed back. “This is the time that she should be talking about it. If you have the greatest platform on daytime television to speak to the people, to say your voice, to say what … if you believe that he is innocent … and if she stands by him, then she should stand by him. … Don’t hide!”
