Interracial relations used to be a taboo for the opposite sex, especially among whites who believe they are superior to others. They view interracial relations with contempt and disapproval and therefore try to prevent them at all costs and against all odds. Arthur Adam Housley, a renowned journalist, defiled the validity of this belief and married Tamera Mowry, who is half black and the couple is still living in marital bliss.
Adam Housley married an American actress and model Tamera Mowry, who is currently co-host of the American talk show The Real, on May 15, 2011. On November 12, 2012, the couple was blessed with a son named Aden John-Tanner, and their second child, Ariah Talea Housley, arrived on the first day of July 2015 following the announcement of her imminent birth in January 2015.
The celebrity couple participated in the Celebrity Cupcake Wars on Food Network, for which they were the 2016 winners. They took three other couples for the title with their Chocolate Cabernet, Jalapeño Cornbread, and Vanilla Port Wine Cupcakes. Their prizes from the celebrity Cupcake Wars were donated to the charity SnowballExpress.org, which is known to care for the families of fallen US military heroes.
The fact that Tamera is half black has caused many controversies among the couple. Both Adam and Tamera received many unsolicited opinions from social media because of their interracial relationship and his position at Fox News. Regardless of this, Adam was not disturbed by all the controversies, but he defended his wife and gave her back to the people who raised racial issues in his marriage with harsh words.
Adam expressed his disappointment with people who still practice racial discrimination and said that in this day and age one would expect them to know better. He stressed that marrying someone of another race does not change who you are in any way. Tamera has a twin sister named Tia Mowry, who is an actress just like Tamera.
Adam has earned a respectable annual salary of $50k to $100k from Fox News. This and other income/revenue from his long career in journalism has allowed him to save a handsome amount as his net worth, which is fixed at $3 million.
