Tia & Tamera - Season 3

Way before she was a co-host of The Real (which returns on September 15) Tamera Mowry-Housley was a fresh-faced teen on beloved 90s series Sister, Sister. Naturally this means she's a direct target for all of our burning 90s flashback questions. Fortunately the actress and proud mommy of one was happy to indulge our inquisition and we're kinda obsessed with her healthy list of 90s celeb crushes.

OK!: What's one outfit you wore in the 90s that makes you cringe now?

Tamera Mowry-Housley: It was my first press event that I had ever gone to and it was the Kids Choice Awards. I wore these brown pants with cream stripes and a brown blazer and a big straw brimmed hat. I was 16. Blossom was really big during that time with the hats.


OK!: Who were your celeb crushes at the time?

TMH: I was definitely boy crazy. I loved Jonathan Taylor Thomas. I loved Jaleel White. I loved Brandon Call from Baywatch and Mike Vitar who was from The Sandlot. I could still keep going. I was definitely boy crazy then.

OK!: Was there one movie or TV show you were obsessed with?

TMH: I loved Small Wonder. That little girl robot—she was just amazing. And I loved Out of this World. I always watched them back to back.

OK!: What was a favorite scene you filmed in the 90s?

TMH: I was doing Sister, Sister and it was the scene where I crashed the car. I was learning how to drive. I just loved doing that scene. It was so much fun. It was something I always feared growing up and never did, thank God! I have after in my later years but when I was learning how to drive a car I was perfect.

OK!: Which song did you play on repeat back in the day?

TMH: My song that I loved was Tiffany’s “I Think We’re Alone Now,” but that was probably more 80s. I was obsessed. But I think everyone else was, too.
