Tia Mowry’s got a brand new role! If you’re around my age (I’m still a hot, young 20-something *winks*), then you grew up watching “Sister, Sister,” living through all the teenage angst Tia and her identical twin, Tamera so expertly displayed. Seven years after we said goodbye to our favorite set of twins since The Olsens, Tia introduced us to “Med School,” aka “Melanie Barnett–” her “bipolar” football wife character who carried BET’s “The Game” to success for five fan-obsessed seasons.
Now Tia is embarking on her first new role since leaving The Game as “Stephanie” on Nickelodeon’s new shot, “Instant Mom”. “Stephanie,” a non-cooking food blogger has just married a man who has three children. She draws on her own experience as mom to adorable two-year-old son Cree for inspiration. “I feel like I am a fun, energetic, sassy mom. I’m not your traditional mom. I am applying that to my role–being fun and nurturing.”
And the role of playing mom to teenagers instead of toddlers is teaching her a thing or two as well like how to tell your kids little white lies to keep their innocence. “What’s interesting is…I feel like I have fast-forwarded what I will be going through in a few years, like dating, lying to my kids for the first time about certain things like Santa.”
But what is going to set “Instant Mom” apart from all the other family shows on TV right now? Tia says, “I think the concept of the show is amazing. You don’t really see a lot of blended family with African-Americans. It’s really cool to see something very relatable. You hear a lot about women getting into relationships with men who [already] have kids.”
Check out our chat with Tia about her cooking impaired character and some of her very own best dishes!
Check out some Tia inspired dishes below:
Tia’s Best Non-Vegan Dish:
With a look of longing in her eyes, Tia detailed her favorite “former fat girl” dish, “Pasta baked with mascarpone cheese, all different types of cheeses, tortellini pasta with cheese in it!”
Tia’s Best Vegan Dish:
“Quinoa with bok choy, cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, garlic, sesame oil, sea salt and pepper…”
Tia’s Guilty Pleasure Dessert:
Quinoa bar [she knows it sounds gross], but when they infuse it in agave and cacao, it’s delish!
