Tia and Tamera Mowry: We Could Kick Some Olsen Twin A**Published by Natasha Fierce on Tuesday, July 17, 2012 at 8:52 am.
In a recent interview with CNN.com, super-twins Tia Mowry-Hardict and Tamera Mowry-Housley may have stumbled upon the next big thing in reality television.
The like-minded, like-faced sisters threw down a gauntlet to that other pair of Hollywood twins, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen: “We would beat them in a fight,” the Sister, Sister stars declared. Are we putting money on this? If so, let me go get my life savings, the deed to my house and all the scrap precious metal I can find and put it on Tia’s left hook. Seriously, the Olsen’s look like you could knock them over with the same feather, so no challenge there.
Other, almost equally obvious things T&T (or, as we will now refer to them, TNT) talked about include the thrill of getting pregnant, and not being the most popular girls in school.
“Our experience as actors in high school wasn’t really the best experience,” Tamera told CNN. “I think a lot of the time kids automatically assumed that maybe you think that you’re better than they are because you’re on TV. And we had big curly hair and buck teeth at the time so they called us the ‘Buckwheat Twins.’”
Tia added that she’ll never forget the time another student “screamed down the hall and he said ‘Your show sucks!’”
Her response to that high school hater is just plain awesome: “I turned around and I said, ‘Well, the checks don’t!”
As for the Olsens, do you really want a piece of this? Yeah, didn’t think so.
