Tamera Mowry Breaks Down Over Interracial Marriage Taunts, Spewing of "Hate"

by at . Comments

In snippets released from her interview on Oprah: Where Are They Now - which airs Friday at 8 p.m. on OWN - Tamera Mowry breaks down while recalling the awful insults she's heard since marrying Fox News Channel correspondent Adam Housley in 2011.

"People choose to look past love and spew hate," the former sitcom star says of reaction to her interracial union. "That's what hurts me, because I've never experienced so much hate ever in my life, ever."

Mowry says she's been referred to as a "white man's whore" and that someone actually said to her once: "Back in the day, you cost $300, but now, you're giving it away for free."

The actress, who was a 29-year old virgin until sleeping with Housely, adds that she simply can't relate to this mindset because she comes from a biracial household.

However, although the insults are painful, Mowry is doing all she can to remain strong and positive.

"I love my husband so much, I love our family, I love our dynamic. I'm proud to be in the relationship that I am because it's based on love," she says. "Pure love."

I have an identical twin and we are mixed. My twin married a black man because she loves him. I married a white man because I love him. It is truly sad that there are people this hateful in the world. I wish I could say that no one has ever insulted me in this way. Stay strong and try not to let the racist steal your joy. I wish you both the best and please continue to be happy.

Actually some of the most racist people on the planet are in IR relationships.Ive heard white women who date non-white men say some of the most heinous,vile,hateful things about white guys.Ive also seen the same things from white men who date asian women say vile/horrible things about white women.If these people are so happy in their retionships they wwouldn't be insulting their same race men /women.

Oh really? that's funny since I'm pretty sure ignorance has nothing to do with skin color and all to do with intelligence and upbringing. What you said right now makes YOU the ignorant one.

Who cares?! A lot of people. People who are interracial relationships and have to deal with crap like this! Why the hell should we, or anyone for that matter, be berated and degraded for loving who we do? Regardless of their race. My relationship with my half black half Puerto Rican husband is stronger, with more love than a lot of the single race couples that I know. Am I saying that in anyway makes our relationship better? No. But it is absolutely ridiculous. People hide behind their damn keyboards and type whatever the hell they want with no fear of retribution and not caring that their words hurt a real person on the other side. It's cowardice because they would NEVER say anything like what they type to your face.

People are so ignorant, leave that girl alone, you should be happy that she married for love. Love really has no color. God loves us all, he didn't pick and choose black or white people, He chose people. Remember the devil is the one who hates, and people who hate, are full of him.

God you are pathetic. People like you don't even deserve to live on this planet. I actually hope all racists people just die. They are pathetic. Just like you. I'm guessing your mommy and daddy didn't raise you better than that. You're parents are just as pathetic as you are.
