- Tamera Mowry-Housley
As one of the hosts on The Real, Tamera Mowry-Housley has been on TV five-days-a-week since 2013. But still, the former Sister, Sister actress has been itching to get back to her true passion after a “10-year acting hiatus.” It’s only natural that she would lean on her “obsession with all things Christmas” to star in Hallmark Movies & Mysteries’ A Christmas Miracle — her first movie with a starring role in nearly a decade.
Tis the Season
Beyond the magic of Christmas, Tamera, who also serves as the Executive Producer for the movie, wanted a project that she felt personally connected to. “I wanted it to be a reflection of me, and I felt like Hallmark is just that,” she tells GoodHousekeeping.com. In the movie, Tamera plays Emma Sanderson, a single mom “trying to start her life over after getting a divorce.” After putting her passion on hold to raise her family, the former lifestyle magazine writer is in a compromising position: She’s on her own to support her family, and takes an assistant job at her hometown publication to find her sense of purpose (and possibly love) again. For Tamera, the movie serves as a reminder that even if “you have a detour, it’s okay to turn back around and start all over again, whether it’s in love, career, or family.”
Even though Emma’s life is drastically different from Tamera’s — she has two kids with husband of eight years Adam Housley — she still found ways to bring her maternal instincts to the movie. “A mother and son relationship is a different dynamic,” she explains. “Even the way Emma put on her son Tyler’s coat or touched his chin are things that I brought from my relationship with my son Aden.”

To prepare for the role, Tamera leaned on her twin sister Tia, who has starred in numerous TV Christmas movies including Lifetime’s A Very Vintage Christmas airing later this month. “She prepared me for the long nights, and reminded me to remember to have fun in the process. It’s easy when you’re shooting night scenes and ending your day at 5:30 a.m. to lose sight of that,” she tells us.
Even in those “exhausting moments,” Tamera caught “the acting bug,” and confirms that she’ll definitely take on more acting roles in the near future. As for the rumors that Tia and Tamera will partner up for another movie (something they haven’t done since 2000)? “We are such twins because I just said to my director of A Christmas Miracle that I would love to do with a Christmas movie with Tia and Tahj,” Tamera laughs. “It’s magic onscreen when we work together. It’s not something we create, it’s just there.” The one catch: “We’d probably have to film it over a longer period of time because we’d be laughing every single take.”
While there isn’t any specific movie in the works (yet), Tamera is clearly 100% on board. “Maybe next year,” she exclaims.

- The Real’s Tamera Mowry-Housley opened up on October 17 about how she and her twin sister, Tia Mowry-Hardrict, went to sibling therapy to learn to effectively communicate.
- In the episode, the mother-of-two shared that growing up in a religious household, she felt there was a stigma around going to therapy—but “I believe God created humans and humans created therapy. Thank God for that!”
If you were one of the folks who watched Tia and Tamera, the reality show that aired from 2011 to 2013 starring, yep, Tia Mowry-Hardrict and her twin Tamera Mowry-Housley, you may not be surprised to learn that the 41-year-old sisters haven’t always gotten along. Despite what the 90s sitcom Sister, Sister may have implied, the two real life humans have, in fact, had arguments because—well, family. And on an episode of their reality show entitled “Failure to Communicate,” we got to see them going to a therapist together.
As a refresher—in case you blinked in 2012 and missed the pivotal message they were trying to impart about the de-stigmatization of mental health counseling—Tamera recently explained on The Real what they learned in that episode.
“Obviously it worked out great. But I will say this: Sometimes growing up in a religious household, sometimes therapy is seen as a weakness. Like you shouldn’t go to therapy to get it together, you should go to God, and if you were closer to God, you wouldn’t be having this issue. But the reality is, I believe God created humans and humans created therapy. Thank God for that!”
She went to explain that she and the Tia Mowry’s Quick Fix vlogger sought professional help as siblings “because we were so different and we needed to learn how to communicate in a way that was positive for both of us. I’m very sensitive, as the world knows, and my sister is very assertive, and she can handle herself, but we had to learn how to communicate properly with each other.”
Although they are now as close as…twins (“That girl is my best friend. I love that girl!” Mowry-Housley assured fans of The Real), she did mention that she’s had to rein in talking about her family since joining the daytime show. “I learned kind of like the hard way…” Mowry-Housley shared. “Because obviously we talk about our personal lives, so the first season, I got lots of phone calls from my mom, my dad, my sister…‘What’re you talking about? What’re you talking about?’”
Mowry-Housley explained, “I’ve learned not to say anything that they can’t defend themselves in the moment if they’re not here. So now I know my limitations.” Frankly, those are words we can all live by—or as the old adage goes, “If you can’t say it to someone’s face, don’t say it at all.”

Making Digital Twins Work in the Real World
The concept of a digital twin has been around for nearly two decades. However, it is lower-cost enabling technologies that are putting this modern approach to manufacturing within reach of more companies.
Optimizing Digital Twins in Manufacturing
By definition, a digital twin is an exact representation of a physical production system in a digital environment. This makes it possible for manufacturers to see how every phase of production contributes or detracts from product quality. Most commonly, digital twins are used for quality control, improvement, system diagnostics, monitoring, optimization, and prediction of production outcomes and machinery performance. Optimizing digital twins requires investments both in the machinery being monitored and in software that turns data into actionable insights.
Some manufacturers are paying to upgrade or replace their fully depreciated legacy machinery, so they can deploy machines that are equipped with sensors, their own operating systems, and IP addresses. These smart, connected machines are capable of reporting yield rates on specific production runs, providing real-time monitoring and data that enable manufacturers to gain the advances of a digital twin.
The most advanced manufacturers rely on supervised and unsupervised machine-learning algorithms to discover how they can improve quality based on the terabytes of data generated daily in a typical production environment. Both types of algorithms, which are the foundation of digital twins’ ability to deliver valuable insights, need to have process- and product-based real-time monitoring data.
Supervised machine-learning algorithms take advantage of historical trending data extracted from real-time monitoring to seek out and find the optimized solution to a specific problem, such as production scheduling. Unsupervised machine-learning algorithms excel at finding patterns in unlabeled data that comes from real-time monitoring, making these algorithms perfect for root cause analysis of product quality improvements.
When introducing a digital twin strategy, manufacturers need to have a specific business case and production-based purpose if they are going to deliver its full potential. Senior management also needs to “own” the digital twin outcomes and help to remove barriers to its adoption, starting at the pilot level and progressing through production. All digital twin pilots that make it into production have very clear, well-defined metrics and key performance indicators (KPIs) that keep them focused on delivering the results they need to scale and deliver greater value.
Lessons Learned from Digital Twin Early Adopters
Digital twin early adopters tend to focus on improving product quality while also seeking to increase maintenance optimization, including two well-known reliability metrics of mean time between failures (MTBF) and mean time to repair (MTTR). Additionally, real-time monitoring can provide contextually rich data sets that enable machine-learning algorithms to provide insights into how to achieve product quality and maintenance. Digital twins are most accurate when they combine supervised machine-learning algorithms, which take historical trending data and build models across the data points to look for patterns, with unsupervised machine-learning algorithms optimized for finding new patterns of anomalies.
Early adopters are finding that digital twins deliver valuable data and contributions in four key areas of their business.
1. Improved Efficiency. Digital twins are delivering valuable new insights into how end-to-end production processes can be made more efficient. Creating a reliable, scalable digital twin strategy requires every phase or stage of the production process to be monitored in real time. This ensures that the digital twin is an exact representation of the physical system, which enables production and quality engineering teams to test scenarios aimed at improving end-to-end production efficiency, scale and speed.
2. Quality Management. Digital twins help manufacturers to improve quality management by analyzing real-time production and quality data to discover why quality anomalies are happening. Through the resulting insights, these businesses have been able to reduce scrap rates, increase machine and plant yields, and reduce return material authorizations (RMA). Manufacturers are increasingly using digital twins to simulate quality and conduct failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA) of new products during the design stage. This makes it possible to identify all of the possible failures in a design or manufacturing process before a single part is created, and it is invaluable in reducing scrap levels of when entirely new parts are produced.
3. Optimized MRO. Digital twins are proving to be very effective at improving the maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) and asset longevity of machinery manufacturers rely on daily to deliver products. Understanding how specific combinations of material components, machinery load levels, cycle times, operator team training levels, tool calibration, and preventative maintenance activity all contribute to improving MRO is the ultimate goal manufacturers have with digital twins. Knowing which combination of factors most and least impact asset longevity and MRO accuracy and scale are invaluable for keeping a production center at peak efficiency.
4. Cross-Group Collaboration. Digital twins enable manufacturers to achieve greater visibility and collaboration, from initial product design to production, by bringing engineering, production, sales, and marketing together as a common team. By capitalizing on the ability to first simulate and then plan changes to the production process, digital twins contribute to more efficient new product development cycles, improve product quality, and increase yield rates across diverse production systems. As a result, design to manufacturing is now a reality for many manufacturers pursuing build-to-order, configure-to-order, and engineer-to-order product strategies.
The influence of digital twins is already being seen in the development of every type of next-generation product, from supersonic aircraft to next-generation industrial machinery. However, for digital twin strategies to be effective, they must be anchored in a solid business case and linked to a production-driven purpose
Those responsible for advancing digital twins from pilot to production need to be held accountable for the metrics and KPIs that reflect their contribution to a company’s business outcomes. And it’s a must-do for any senior executive to the C-level to “own” the digital twin initiative to ensure its success. All digital twin pilots that make it from pilot to production had a C-level owner who removed the barriers and roadblocks to its success.

If you like your Christmas movies with a little bit of mystery, Lifetime’s A Very Vintage Christmas might be right up your alley with its search to find the rightful owner of a long-lost box containing romantic mementos.
The mystery begins when Dodie (Tia Mowry-Hardrict), the owner of the brand-new Very Vintage Antiques store, finds a hidden box containing letters and mementos of a past romance and makes it her mission to find the rightful owner and discover how the story ended.

“I have done several Christmas movies, and what was so special about this one, there was a mystery to it,” Mowry-Hardrict tells Parade.com in this one-on-one interview. “So, yes, there’s Christmas in the background — you see Santa, and there’s Christmas trees and lights, but in the forefront, is this mystery.”
It was also the idea of the vintage shop and all that it entailed for the character, who is a hopeless romantic who loves all things vintage, that also attracted Mowry-Hardrict to the project. And she shares a secret: When you see Dodie onscreen, she is always wearing vintage clothing and shoes.
“You probably wouldn’t see, but some of the clothes had holes under the arms, and they had to stitch them,” Mowry-Hardrict says. “There’s a specific name of the shoes that I wore – forgive me, I forgot it, and they actually went to a vintage store to get them. So, I thought that that was just a really cool component to the movie.”

And, of course, early on Dodie has a cute meet with the handsome Edward (Jesse Hutch), who volunteers to help her on her quest – and his carpentry skills come in handy, too, when there is a near disaster at her shop on the eve of its opening.
“The love story is, in my opinion, a very real love story, because she’s not so quick to find love because she’s desperate,” Mowry-Hardrict says. “Dodie is not desperate to find love at all. She wants what’s real, and, I think, that stems from her studying other people’s relationships. She’s very fascinated with old things, because she believes that there’s something new in it, and she’s fascinated with the what, the why, the how, and the when to the story behind these pieces. And so, there’s this authenticity to her, and I think that’s what’s so great about the love story, as well. She wants it to be real.”

It was also real for Mowry-Hardrict, too, because she comes from a mixed family. Her mother’s black and her father’s white, so she appreciated the opportunity to showcase that example from her life.
“We’re not living in the 1900s,” she points out. “There are beautiful, amazing families that are thriving because of love, and not because of the color of someone’s skin, and we don’t have to beat it over the head, that this is what’s happening. No, this is a story about two people who happen to work together and fall in love and realize that, yeah, there are some differences there, but there’s similarity there as well, and then, they come together.”
See Ya, Haters! Tia Mowry’s Post on Snapback Culture Is Everything
Why do people love these Christmas movies so much?
I can only talk from my personal experience. When I’m watching a Christmas movie, it just reminds you of all the things that are magical, right? I feel like Christmas is magical.
So, that’s one component. The other component is, when you’re watching a Christmas movie, it brings those nostalgic feelings. For me, when I’m watching a Christmas move, it reminds me of when I was growing up and on Christmas Eve, my family would watch all of the Christmas movies together. We would have Christmas brunch together. We would have Christmas dinner. So, it just makes you just remember all those wonderful memories that you had during Christmastime.
Another reason why I feel people love Christmas movies is because it’s that one time of year where you can forget about the noise that’s going on. Whether it’s what’s in the world or the stress that you’re having at work, you’re focusing on what matters. You’re focusing on the people that are right in front of you, right now, and those are the people that you love. Those are the people that you care about. Those are the people that you’re just spending quality time with, and, I think, that’s just such a warm, rewarding feeling. So, I think that’s why so many people love Christmas movies. Not only that, love is always involved, right? And there’s always a happy ending.

As we mentioned, A Very Vintage Christmas has a mixed relationship, but what’s great about it is it feels natural.
That’s one thing that I will say that I admire about Lifetime is it really allows for the relatability factor, and what I mean by relatability is what’s going on in our world today. They are able to allow the stories to be real, grounded, and represented in a real and authentic way, and that’s what I loved about the characters having this mixed relationship.
What are some of your favorite Christmas movies?
It’s a Wonderful Life, which, of course, is a classic. I think that’s a beautiful story. Home Alone and Home Alone 2, those I grew up with. And Home Alone, I feel like it didn’t depict this perfect family, which is great. Home Alone was this chaotic, big, huge family. They weren’t paying attention to Kevin, so that they actually left him home, you know?
A Christmas Story, again, this was not a perfect family, and they added comedy to that. I thought that that was just so funny with the lamp and then the leg. He was so fascinated with that lamp. It’s like real, you know? And the wife’s like, “Okay, oh, my God. Let’s put it in the house.” It was just a funny, fun movie, and they’re all classics.
Lifetime Reveals Its It’s A Wonderful Lifetime Christmas Movie Premieres for 2019
Do you have a family holiday tradition you can share?
The family holiday tradition that we tend to do every holiday is decorate the Christmas tree together as a family. It’s something that I would do when I was a child growing up with my family, and after we’ve decorated the tree, my mother…she’s very spiritual…we would stand around, hold each other’s hands, and we would pray. We would pray about all the things that we’re thankful for and about each other. I’ve carried on that tradition with my family.
We always go to , where you get a real tree, because I love the smell of the pine, and we put lights on it, and then, we listen to Christmas music. I’m a huge fan of Celine Dion, her CD, Mariah Carey, and Boyz II Men. I sing songs at the top of my lungs, and then, drink hot cocoa.
You have another Christmas show coming up on Netflix on December 9.
So, Family Reunion is this show that I’ve done for Netflix, and we ended up getting picked up for the second season. We shot 20 episodes. They put out the first 10. They’re going to put out the second 10 in January or February, I believe, but in December, they’re going to air our Christmas episode.
And when I say we have this magical moment in the show where, again, it’s almost like a part of my tradition where everybody gathers around and sings Christmas carols. I think we sing “Silent Night,” and to be standing next to Loretta Devine, who has the voice of an angel, singing along with you…it was just a moment for me.
A Very Vintage Christmas premieres Nov. 27 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Lifetime.
‘A Christmas Miracle’s Tamera Mowry-Housley on Joining Hallmark & Playing a Mom
Emma is looking for a miracle in Tamera Mowry-Housley’s first Hallmark movie, and she might just find it, for her job and for herself.
While looking for the right story for the lifestyle magazine where she’s an assistant, Emma clashes — and maybe falls in love — with her colleague, Marcus (Brooks Darnell). As should be no surprise to Hallmark viewers, they’re like “oil and water,” Mowry-Housley told TV Insider. That will, of course change during Hallmark Movies & Mysteries’ A Christmas Miracle.
But what is a perfect match from the beginning is Mowry-Housley and Hallmark, especially for Christmas. In fact, it’s a dream come true for the actress. “If I were a movie, I would be a Hallmark movie,” she said. “Their brand, what they believe in, who they are, that’s who I am. I love love. I’m always positive. I love Christmas.
Here, Mowry-Housley previews her introduction to Hallmark Christmas movies.

The new original movie premieres Thursday, November 14 on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries.
Where is Emma professionally and personally when we first meet her? What are her goals?
Tamera Mowry-Housley: Emma just started working for a daily lifestyle magazine. She is an assistant to one of the main editors there. Her talents are way more than just being an assistant. But she had to take a demotion because she was getting right back into the work force after she got a divorce. When she was married she was focusing on her family and her seven-year-old son, Tyler.
How do she and Marcus cross paths?
Emma thought Marcus was a downer. They meet on her first day on the job. It’s around Christmas time. Emma is obsessed with Christmas because of the meaning of Christmas. She’s a very optimistic, positive person, and she’s passing around mini Christmas trees that actually light up. She took extra time in doing that. She introduces herself to Marcus, and he is like a bah humbug. He is negative towards her right off the bat and doesn’t really appreciate her positivity at first. He sees it more as a nuisance.

And how does that change as they get to know each other?
Emma’s positivity starts to rub off on Marcus. He realizes she has talents as a writer, so they help each other. She helps him see the brighter side of life, and he helps her tap back into her talents and start believing in herself.
How would you describe Emma’s relationship with her boss, Valerie?
She obviously respects Valerie and she wants Valerie to see her potential, so she’s very respectful. She is a bit of an overachiever, so right off the bat, she wants to prove herself to her. She’s aware Valerie can be a little forward, but that doesn’t deter her from showing Valerie who she is, that she’s a warm, loving, kind, and efficient assistant.
The 6 Sweetest Sister Relationships on TV
Celebrate sisterhood by watching one of these six shows featuring the sweetest sisters on TV.
What do you think about Emma stands out to and maybe intimidates Valerie?
The fact that she is what she isn’t. … Sometimes people can see your sweetness and your kindness as a weakness and as annoying. She Emma being so sweet it gives her a cavity at first. Maybe there’s a little part of Valerie that wants what Emma has because who doesn’t want to be happy? Who doesn’t want to change people in a positive way just by being in their presence?
Emma sets out to help a street performer, Santa Dean. What does she see in him that draws her to this story?
She sees he’s more than what he is. Maybe she sees a little bit of herself in him. Emma starts off as this assistant. She knows she is more than this. Then she sees this street performer. She’s like, “Wait a minute. There’s this spark in his eye and also there’s this sadness that I see and then there’s this happiness that I see when he’s around kids.” Being a writer, she naturally sees that there’s more — not a story to write — but that he has a personal story. She connects with him in that way. She has empathy for him.
(Allister Foster/Crown Media)
She knows what Christmas is all about. She got a divorce from her husband. She loves love. She sees here’s a man yearning for that type of family love that he can’t portray or give. By her being able to possibly help him do that, she feels like she’s done her duty as a human being. Emma is a person that has morals and belief and holds onto them — no matter who you are, she wants to help.
You’re also an executive producer on the movie. Is there anything in particular you wanted to make sure was included for your character or the story?
I definitely wanted to make sure the film was diverse. That is a reflection of my life. I am biracial. I work on The Real, where we talk about how representation matters, and having that power of choosing the cast, I wanted to make sure we had that.

I also wanted to make sure I was a mom. I love being a mom. That is by far one of my favorite roles. … I’ve never actually played a mom in a film. Gabriel is so great in that role. We have natural chemistry. I told him I wanted to be his play aunt for the rest of his life. He can’t get rid of me.
I really liked that relationship and the moments we got between the two, especially when he’d been sleeping on the couch.
It’s so cool to hear you talk about these moments that meant a lot to me when I was filming them. I knew that moment in the film was a pivotal one, especially being a mom. All Emma wants is her son to feel comfortable because she plucked him out of where they used to live and brought him back to her hometown. He doesn’t know anybody. He doesn’t have any friends. He just knows Emma’s best friend.

A Christmas Miracle, Movie Premiere, Thursday, November 14, 9/8c, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries
Fans of Hallmark Christmas movies wait all year long to get their fix of feel-good, festive films, and the star of the upcoming movie A Christmas Miracle says that audiences are in for an extra special treat this year.
Brooks Darnell stars in A Christmas Miracle, a film that centers around single mother Emma Sanderson (played by Sister, Sister star Tamera Mowry) who moves to a new city to start a job at a lifestyle magazine. There, she meets Darnell’s character Marucs, the magazine’s photographer who is a bit of a Scrooge, to say the least.
At her new job, Emma sets out on a mission to write a killer story about a Christmas miracle and ends up coming up with a pretty great idea — until her boss devastatingly steals the story out from under her. But things start to turn around when she teams up with Marcus, and the two start to develop an unlikely relationship.

Had a blast filming my new movie @hallmarkchannel @hallmarkmovie “A Christmas Miracle” with the talented and always amazing @tameramowrytwo. Hallmark Christmas Movies have always had a special place in my heart for their positive, caring message. Premierimg November 14th 9pm EST. This movie will make you laugh, love, and fill your home with the holiday spirit!
A post shared by Brooks Darnell (@sincerelybrooksdarnell) on Sep 10, 2019 at 9:02am PDT
When it comes to playing a Scrooge, the extremely personable and Christmas-loving Darnell said that aspect put his acting chops more to the test.
“I’m the total opposite,” he said. “I’m like putting the Christmas tree up with the Christmas hat, putting it on the dog, eating popcorn. I have Home Alone playing in the background on the TV. I have all my soundtracks that I’m listening to on Spotify. I’m the guy that goes to the Thanksgiving Day sale, the day after Christmas sale, camping out, and I pretty much buy out the whole store, so I’m all for the whole Christmas theme.”
Lucky for Darnell, Hallmark did an amazing job of making sure the set of A Christmas Miracle always felt like Christmas, despite the fact they were shooting in the dead of summer. There was plenty of hot chocolate, roasted chestnuts, and even real snow. And apart from the fact that he got to be surrounded by all things Christmas every day, Darnell said one of the best parts of working on the film was getting to work with Mowry, and experience her constant positivity and unbeatable leadership.
“It was just over and beyond,” the Ohio-native said. “It doesn’t matter how you were feeling that day, what happened before you got to set, as soon as you laid eyes on her and you started talking to her, she just radiates this positive energy and it was just so refreshing to go to work. She was a class act, she really helped me bring my game up.”
A Christmas Miracle is Darnell’s second movie venture with Hallmark, after landing a role in the 2016 film All Yours. He said what keeps him coming back is the same thing that has made Hallmark Christmas movies such a hit: the warm feeling each movie leaves you with.
“It’s the positivity, it’s the family,” Darnell said. “They do a great job with casting and they cast people with chemistry. Family first is what Hallmark is about and I think deep down inside, that’s what we all are about.”
You can catch Brooks Darnell and Tamera Mowry in A Christmas Miracle on Nov. 14 at 9 p.m. on the Hallmark channel.
