Tamera Mowry-Housley, an Emmy-winning host, actress, and now author, has announced the publication of her first memoir, You Should Sit Down For This: A Memoir about Life, Wine, and Cookies, published through Legacy Lit.
According to a press release, Mowry-Housley encourages readers to imagine themselves sitting down in her kitchen after a warm hug, surrounded by the smell of freshly baked cookies, and sipping a cup of tea. That's what the former host of The Real wants to read You Should Sit Down for This to be like — catching up with an old pal over a lovely Earl Grey and too many sweets.
The 44-year-old vulnerably wrote in an Instagram post, "I couldn't be more proud of it!" I laugh, I cry, and give you my whole heart (heart emoji)
Mowry-Housley's life will be explored in this book, from her self-exile from the beauty pageants world to the craziness of her dating life. She also discusses the difficulties of juggling family and career, and why women should hide out in their closets when they need a few minutes of solitude.
Mowry-Housley was introduced to our TV screens as a half-sister of the beloved twin dyad on the Fox network show The Real. According to her memoir, the transition from a teenage star to a grown woman took place in the public eye. She also describes being raised as an army brat in Hawaii and being secluded and protected.
You Should Sit Down for This: A Memoir About Life, Wine, and Cookies is characterized as "a lighthearted and delightful glimpse into the life of a well-known actor." The goal of the memoir is to encourage readers to embrace the challenges and triumphs of growing up all while honoring "the snacks and juicy parts of life."
