Popular American 90s sitcom ‘Sister, Sister’ follows the story of twin sisters Tia and Tamera who get adopted into different families as babies, only to meet years later. One day at the mall, the twins meet each other in a chance encounter in a clothing store. Tamera’s adoptive father Ray Campbell reluctantly allows Tia and her adoptive mother Lisa Landry to live with them because the twins don’t want to be separated anymore. But they are anything but like each other – Tia is an intelligent city-girl while boy-crazy Tamera is suburban. They often get into hilarious scrapes due to being identical. The show ran for six seasons, originally from 1994 to 1999. Curious to know where the cast of ‘Sister, Sister’ is now? Here’s everything we know.

I’ve lost to date 68 pounds since giving birth to my daughter. I’m very proud that I did it my way and in my time. I didn’t feel rushed to snap back. I enjoyed breast feeding and spending quality time with #cairo and my son #cree. To all the women who are feeling pressured after birth. Do YOU! Do what makes YOU proud and do it in YOUR time. Not anyone else’s. ❤️
Tia Mowry-Hardrict plays the brainy twin, Tia Landry on ‘Sister, Sister’. Her character was adopted by Lisa Landry, an aspiring fashion designer. Tia, now a married mother of two, is still acting and also expanding into producing. Most recently, she signed a three-film deal with Lifetime Channel to star in and produce three holiday-themed movies for their It’s a Wonderful Lifetime slate. Tia, alongside her twin, went on to star in the Disney Channel original movies ‘Seventeen Again’ (2000), ‘Twitches’ (2005), and ‘Twitches Too’ (2007) after ‘Sister, Sister’ ended.
Since then, Tia has also done a string of Lifetime and Hallmark movies, has acted on multiple tv shows like ‘The Game’, ‘Instant Mom’, and ‘Family Reunion’.

Additionally, Tia also has a web-series of her own – ‘Tia Mowry’s Quick Fix’ – in which she shares tips on cooking, parenting, and exercising (among other things).
Tamera plays the goofy twin Tamera, who lives in the suburbs with her adoptive father. After the show ended in 1999, Tamera also continued acting, like her sister, in Lifetime, Hallmark, and Disney Channel movies. In 2013, Tamera started hosting the daytime talk show ‘The Real’, where she worked alongside comedian Loni Love, actress Adrienne Bailon, and TV personality Jeannie Mai. In July 2020, she announced through an Instagram post that she was stepping away from the show after seven years to pursue other projects. The 42-year old actress has recently found peace in cooking with her family, something she started doing quite often during the quarantine months.

They sold the studios in 2015.

I am a black man… I build… I don’t tear down other black men!… I have felt the pain of being torn down and I have decided I will be deliberate about building others! All too often, we men find it easier to criticize each other instead of building each other up. With all the negativity going around let’s do something positive!! Let’s build each other up, instead of tearing ourselves down. ✊🏿✊🏾✊🏽🤎🖤 #IamABlackManChallenge #IAmABlackMan
