Tamera Takes a Little Break—and Thinks Her Sis Should, Too!
Tia was really sad that she couldn't spend time with Cree while she was filming Mistle-Tones in Utah. I wanted to let her know that, as her sister, this was the perfect time to slow down. I wanted her to allow herself to be a mom after she finished the movie, and maybe just do three projects instead of five. But my sister's mentality is, "I'm going to do all five because I want to do all five," and I can respect that. I just tried to give her another scenario. A lot of times, your life just passes you by and you miss some great achievements in your child's life, which is what happened to Tia. I wanted to give her that option. It didn't go so well.
I had to slow down myself and not focus too much on my auditions. Adam helped me realize that it was important to break away so that I can clear my head and, then, refocus. When you focus too much on something, you lose your momentum. You become so focused on being focused that you forget what you're focusing on. It's good to relax and do stuff you enjoy and, then, go back to your goal.
One of the things I did was shop for my Napa home with my friend Cheri. My home in Napa is the biggest home I've ever purchased. Where do I start? There are so many different styles. So, I had a mediator, Eden Rodriguez, who actually was the designer of my wedding. She did an amazing job. She already knew Adam and I as people, so she was definitely able to hone in my likes and his likes and make it into one. Adam loves antiques. He has more of a vintage, eclectic style. I have more of the elegant, comfortable style. When you combine those two styles together, it actually works perfectly.
