Identical twin sisters Tia Mowry-Hardrict and Tamera Mowry-Housley have always been extremely close, but giving birth has brought their bond to a new, weird level. On the season finale of “Tia & Tamera,” their reality show on the Style network, Tia ate Tamera’s placenta after Tamera gave birth to her son Aden.
Seriously. She almost couldn’t bring herself to do it when she saw some “residue” in it, but Tamera assured her that it tastes good. Finally, Tia mixed the encapsulated pacenta with some brandy and ate it. “Mmm, it’s kind of good,” she agreed.
It wasn’t the first time they’d shared each other’s bodily fluids — after Tia had her son Cree in 2011, she made Tamera drink her breast milk.
“Tasting Tamera’s encapsulated placenta was very interesting!” Tia wrote on her blog. “If you think about it too much, you’re not going to like it, because all you’re going to think about is that you’re consuming placenta. But I was really, really surprised that it tasted pretty good mixed with a little bit of alcohol. It was definitely Tamera paying me back for making her taste my breast milk. I tasted my own breast milk and I still think my breast milk was sweeter than Tamera’s placenta!”
