During an interview on “Today With Hoda and Jenna”, the actress shared how the family is coming together to rally around her sister during this tough time.
“I support her. So, whatever she wants, the Mowrys have her back,” the You Should Sit Down for This author said.
Tamera added that she knows that her sister is strong and deserves privacy during this time.
“I love her dearly. She is strong but I know right now she just kind of just wants to, you know, just kind of process it all, take it all in and be a little private about that,” the Sister, Sister star said. “As a sister, you know, I’m just going to respect that.”
On Tuesday, Tia, 44, announced that she had filed for divorce from Hardrict after 14 years of marriage.
