Having grown up in show business, Tia and Tamera Mowry say they're lucky their parents were big on the concept of separate worlds.
"We learned to differentiate reality and Hollywood," said Tamera Mowry-Housley, who stars alongside her sister Tia Mowry Hardict in the celeb-reality series Tia & Tamera. The second season makes its Canadian debut Thursday, Sept. 13 on E!.
The twin sisters, now 34, starred in the teen sitcom Sister, Sister back in the 1990s.
"I think what happens with a lot of young children who are in this business at such a young age is they're trying to find their identity in this business," Tia said. "And that's not really good because this business is extremely fickle. Our mom, she taught us not to do that.
"So that's, I think, what really helped us, that we didn't allow this business to define who we are as people. We have a show. It doesn't mean that we're better than anybody else."
It doesn't? Then what the heck's the point?
