Tia Mowry Learns About ‘The Game’ Of Football Groupies

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Actress Tia Mowry plays a football star’s girlfriend on the series The Game, but while researching for her role, Mowry learned it’s pretty tough dating a ball player.

Mowry – best known for her role on Sister, Sister, opposite her real-life twin sister, Tamera Mowry – says to get a feel for her role on The Game, she chatted with real NFL wives who said the most difficult part about being a football wife is dealing with gridiron groupies.

Says Mowry: “Football groupies have absolutely no shame. It’s a game for them to try to see which football players they can get with. They’ll put themselves directly in the players’ eye lines during games and walk up to them when they’re with their wives and say, ‘I could be better than her.’ It’s crazy! The football world is a whole other cruel world.”

And while loving a football player could lead to a fumble, Mowry says with the right frame of mind, football wives can score a touchdown. She adds, “You must be strong, love the game, and be able to travel with your man a lot. It’s like you’re the First Lady, but of football!”

The Game airs Mondays on The CW.
