Tamera from “Sister, Sister” Shares Her Own Heartbreaking Story of Bullying — and How She Got Through It

No matter what anyone tries to tell you, words can sting.

We’ve all been there — overhearing someone talking about us or reading some nasty comments on our YouTube videos. We try to tell ourselves to ‘gon’ brush our shoulders off, but for real, that can be a lot easier to say than done.

On Monday, Tamera Mowry-Housley — who became famous, along with her twin sister Tia (who’s also had to clap back at bullying fans), during her hit ’90s sitcom, “Sister, Sister” — got emotional on “The Real” while sharing her own struggle with a bully as a teen. “This is a very vulnerable moment for me,” she began. “But I think somebody can learn from it. So, with that said, my sister and I used to read every fanmail ’cause we just love … our fans that much. So, I can remember reading this stupid letter … when this person called me ‘ugly’ and said I was the ‘ugly and goofy’ twin.

Tamera went on to say how she let that fan’s words get to her for years until her best friend reminded her never to let others define who she is — especially randoms she doesn’t even know.

Watch the video below to find out how Tamera finally learned to let go of the haters’ hate and move forward with good vibes only:

P.S. On a lighter note, we couldn’t help but peep her nails as she wiped her eyes. Fly.
