Hi Tia *Royce The 5’9 voice*
BET star, Reality TV star, Author, and Mommy Tia Mowry sits with Vibe Vixen to let her fans know what’s been going on in her life as of late.
VIBE VIXEN: Congrats on your upcoming book! How did you venture into writing and this book deal?
TIA MOWRY: I’ve always wanted to write. Actually in college that’s what I kind of excelled at. I loved just putting all my thoughts together and jotting them down and basically doing research and all that kind of stuff, and I always wanted to write books. You know how you always had a vision? Well writing a book was always my vision, I just didn’t know what kind of book I was going to write.
VV: What was your favorite part about the entire writing process?
TM: Two things: my whole process and I’m so happy I wrote it this way. I wrote it from a journalistic perspective, so I was jotting down stuff in my journal during my pregnancy because I wanted it to be authentic and from a realistic perspective and approach. You know it’s funny how you forget. In those 10 months, you really do forget your experiences—you remember them but it’s hard to relive them, so I really liked that part [of reliving them]. I also liked the tone of it. It’s how you would talk to your best friend or your girlfriend, very conversational. When you’re a mom you have so much information in your head and you want to try and figure out as much information as you can, but I didn’t want to seem like I was teaching a course in college; I didn’t want it to be like that. I wanted it to be a fun, crazy funny conversational piece.
VV: How has your style changed since having the baby?
TM: It’s so funny you asked me that because Tamera just told me, ‘Your style has really changed.’ My whole thing with being a mom is that you don’t want to lose your identity; you don’t want to lose who you were before. You can still be that hot, sexy mom. If anything, I like to think I’m wearing heels even more. I didn’t wear them that much until the end [of the pregnancy], so I’m now all about wearing heels. I wear a lot of vibrant, flowy, colorful clothes, before it was edgy. I’m a mom now, but when I go out, I don’t forget who I was before.
