Mowry twins ready for reunion after six months apart

This is the longest the Mowry sisters have ever been apart

Six months is the longest the Mowry sisters, Tamera and Tia, have ever been apart and they’re more than ready to see each other again.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Tamera Mowry-Housley said that she and her twin, Tia Mowry, haven’t been together in person since the coronavirus pandemic hit the U.S. in March of this year.

“I live in Napa and then there was a surge in L.A.,” Tamera, 42. explained. “It wasn’t wise for all of us to go there.”

“But I know for a fact when we see each other we’re just, we’re gonna cry,” said Tamera.

Tamera said that she and her sister get together via Zoom every two weeks and have a virtual happy hour. “We have a glass of wine, we talk about what’s been happening.”

While Tamera said that she and Tia text almost every day, she confided that being with a loved one in person is even better. “Obviously just the human connection, and touch, and hug. And I just can’t wait to do that.”

In acknowledgement of World Mental Health Day, Tamera told PEOPLE that exercise has helped to keep her spirits up during the pandemic.

“Exercising and moving my body really helped me mentally once the pandemic was upon us,” she said. “When we all had to be quarantined for so long, I really discovered the importance of diving back into exercising now that I had the time.”

Tamera has partnered with Zumba to encourage everyone to make time for a mental and physical break. The actress went on to say that when she worked out and moved her body she felt better about herself both physically and mentally.
