Speculation about show executives offering her less money to return led to her departure. But Mowry-Housley says it’s not true. In an Instagram live video, she elaborated on why she left and insists it has nothing to do with her pay.

“I’m going to say this once. I’ve explained it. I’ve been on “The Real” for six/seven years,” she said. “I’m just ready to just try new opportunities and spend more time with my family, that’s it. I am doing a Hallmark film. There’s new opportunities kind of just popping up out of nowhere and I’m just grateful, grateful, grateful.”

Though Bailon says she will miss Mowry-Housley, she’s happy for her friend and former co-host’s future. 

“We know that being with her children, being in Napa with her husband and running their business there, and all the other opportunities and the dreams that she still wants to fulfill – as a friend, we’re all like, ‘Girl yes, you got this’” Bailon tells Entertainment Tonight in a recent interview.

Bailon continues: “We’re like, ‘Damn, we gon’ [sic] miss you, Tam,’” she jokes. “But, we’re also just so proud of her and so happy for her in real life.”
