Tamera Mowry is the latest star to leave The Real, DailyMail.com can exclusively reveal.
‘She’d had enough, she felt like the time was right to move on,’ a source reveals, adding that it was her decision to quit the Fox talk-show.

Mowry’s exit comes after Amanda Seales left the Fox show last month, citing lack of Black voices ‘at the top’ despite it been championed as one of the most diverse daytime talk shows, which features all women of color as its hosts.
Fox Television Stations renewed the series for the seventh and eighth seasons with Warner Bros. Television Distribution in November, meaning the show will continue into the 2021–2022 television season without Mowrey at the table.
The show describes itself as being led by ‘bold, diverse, and outspoken hosts’ who ‘unapologetically say what women are actually thinking.’

Line-up: Loni Love, Adrienne Houghton, Jeannie Mai, Tamera Mowry, and Amanda Seales
Meanwhile, Seales said recently on an Instagram Live about her experience on the show: ‘I’m not in a space where I can, as a full black woman, have my voice and my coworkers also have their voices and where the people at the top are not respecting the necessity for black voices to be at the top too.’
Seales later stressed that her decision to leave had nothing to do with her co-hosts, Loni Love, Jeannie Mai, Adrienne Houghton, or Mowry.
She had guest hosted several times before officially joining the talk show back in January, replacing Tamar Braxton who had been fired in 2016.
The show is said to surpass its competitors like The View on YouTube, where it has around two million followers.
Mowry and her identical twin sister Tia rose to fame on the ABC/WB sitcom Sister Sister which ran for six seasons from 1994 to 1999.
The siblings also starred in their own reality television series, titled Tia & Tamera, which began airing on the Style Network in 2011 and ended in 2013 after three seasons.
In 2018, Mowry took a brief break from the show to mourn the loss of her 18-year-old Alaina Housley who was tragically killed in a shooting at the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks, California.
