Tia Takes New York—and Proves That Moms Can Have Fun!
New York was a really great trip for me because it was nice to get away with my sister. I miss the times where I could say, Come on, Tamera! Let's just get up and go somewhere! It is not like that anymore—at all. I have been obsessed with raising my son and working, and Tamera is a newlywed trying to be the best wife for her husband. We have been doing so many individual things with our personal lives and careers. So, it was nice to get away and focus on ourselves and just have fun with each other. It reminded me of the Sister, Sister days when we were together all the time—promoting our television show and traveling the world. Those were amazing memories.
Meeting Tim Gunn was a thrill. I am a huge fan of his! It was nice to sit down and talk to him on The Revolution.
My sister is all about being the cutesy, fun, girlie twin. I am more of the grounded, "it is what it is" sister. Some editors were telling her to be one way. I was proud of Tamera because she didn't let the feedback alter who she is as a person. In this business, many people try to tell you what they think you should be. At the end of the day, it is all about you being true to yourself. There is only one you. Now if they don't get you, they don't get you. If they do, then they do. It was nice to see how she tackled that.
My whole thing with Tamera trying to find a wine distributor for Century Oak Winery was that she better be getting a percentage of it! She had never done anything like that before. I am all about us trying to build on our brand. Now, all of the sudden, she is so interested in wine and trying to sell her wine. I think it is great that she is taking on something that her husband's family owns. I just didn't want her to waste her time doing it if she wasn't getting a percentage out of it since she was doing the groundwork.
Tamera is so funny! I remember when she visited me in Atlanta while I was filming The Game. I was bumping to some Drake while playing around in front of the mirror. Tamera said, "What are you doing?! You're a mom now! I can't see you dancing!" I was like, Excuse me, Tamera! Being a mom isn't my death sentence. She had this view that moms don't get out and don't have fun because they are moms. I had to prove her wrong and say that is not the case. It's just about us making time to go out. I remember one time when she asked me to go out, I was missing Cree and, at the end of the day, it is all about him. He comes first. If I am missing him and I want to see him, I am going to choose him over going out. But I did show Tamera that moms can have fun, too—and, actually, moms rock!
