Tia and Tamera...hmmn
I am a huge fan of Sister Sister. It is one of the funniest teenage sitcoms I have watched. Tia and Tamera are amazing actresses and I have come to love them and respect them and their talent. The sisters went further to star in films like Seventeen Again and then Twitches. They have also achieved individual success.
Currently as a lead role in The CW sitcom 'The Game' starring alongside Coby Bell, Pooch Hall, Wendy Raquel Robinson and Brittany Daniels(Sweet Valley High). She also starred in the 2007 movie 'The American Standards. She is also going to be taking the role of Pilar from Crystal Joy in the US National Tour of Legally Blonde. She is also currently married to Cory Hardrict of Lincoln Heights. they got married on April 20, 2008. She is to star in movies Hollywood Horror and Four to The Floor.
She is stars in ABC sitcom called Roomates. The plot revolves around friends who move in together after college. She also had a role on Strong Medicine as Dr. Kayla Thornton and on Family Guy as Esther. She is to star in 2009 movies Hollywood Horror and Fight or Flight.
OK. So what's the deal with them. Well Tia and Tamera are professed Christians who became born again when they were 8 years old. They have talked about their faith openly. For instance
Unlike other professed Christians in the spotlight, Tia and Tamera remained close to the Lord during the height of their popularity. "My sister and I—not naming any names—run into so many people who say before they get famous, 'I will never [compromise],'" Tia says thoughtfully. But then they get famous, and "all of the sudden we see them taking their clothes off."

The thing is people think they are fake. People say as Christians they should not have starred in Twitches or Tia should not be exposing too much skin or sleeping around as her character in The Game does. They claim they are setting wrong examples for their Christian role models who see them as role models.
What is my take on this?
Don't call me biased but I think it is all acting. They say they are Christians then let us take their word for it. If they act a movie about witches...so? I mean we know the plot of that movie is similar to that of fairy tales. It is just unfortunate the name is 'Twitches'. If in The Game Tia's character Melanie is not leaving the Christian life does not mean that she as an individual is not a Christian.
I will keep saying this. We are all human beings and we all struggle with different things. It is not in my place or your place to judge someones Christian walk. Besides, whatever you write about them will not affect them wherever they are. They'll keep doing their thing as always. I'll end with what they said at their interview with Christianity Today:
"We have to focus on the fact that all of this is temporary," says Tia. "The main thing God is concerned about is what we're doing for Him."
