Family meeting is adding some housewives to the fold! ET’s Deidre Behar spoke with Tia Mowry, Loretta Devine and Anthony Alabi before the premiere of the third part, and Mowry was excited to have Brandi Glanville, Kenya Moore and Candiace Dillard Bassett making cameos in the comedy.
“It was definitely entertaining,” Mowry said. “… [I] I have a little behind-the-scenes practice. It is so much fun. Even before we started saying our lines and started acting, each of the girls came up to me and told me a few things about the other … and then the action. It was fun.”
Mowry added that Glanville, Moore, and Dillard Bassett, who appeared in The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Atlanta, and Potomacrespectively, they were “so professional” and “so good at acting” during their time on set.
“They were so wonderful,” he said. “It was a lot of fun, very entertaining, I should say. I was having fun.”
After housewives’ time on set, the actors told ET what their own taglines would be, with Devine opting for “It’ll take two plates for that one” and Alabi choosing “What you see is what you get.”
As for Mowry, she said her housekeeping motto would be: “Don’t mess with my family. If you come for me, I come for you.”

“It’s something you don’t take lightly when you have a show, let alone a hit show that people are watching,” said Alabi, whose character, Moz, is married to Cocoa de Mowry on the show. “I think we know how to get in [it] the seriousness of the decisions we make and the way we represent our culture, because I think that, especially at this moment, it is very sensitive. “
“Making sure to walk that line between opening things up to black culture and allowing people to see different aspects of us, but still having that strong representation of this is who we are, this is what we’ve been through, and here it is. where we go, whatever happens, “he continued. “I think that balance is what makes this show so special.”
Devine, who plays Moz’s mother M’Dear, noted that, in her role, “all you can do is imitate your mother, your grandmother, the women you come in contact with, and the women you know. they love their families.. “
“This is a family where everyone really loves each other and everyone supports each other,” he said. “I think that’s what people love to see, good or bad.”
