'Side Effects' play stars Tia and Tamera Mowry's favorite cousin Jerome Wiggins

Reality television star Jerome Wiggins is poised to take his acting career to another level. In a telephone interview yesterday, Jerome speaks to his stint on the show with twin cousins, Tia Mowry-Hardrict and Tamera Mowry-Housely, being in two A.G. Wells Production stage plays and his ministry. With a no-nonesense down-to-earth personality, he is no longer just the Mowry twins' favorite, but he has become everyone's favorite cousin.

Tia and Tamera Mowry have been in the spotlight since they were youngsters and in recent years they've given the world a front row seat into their lives on their self-titled reality series, on the Oxygen network, in which they introduced us to their favorite cousin Jerome Wiggins. In a family of such talent, Jerome has been gifted with several of his own. Singer, songwriter and minister are among the titles he holds besides actor. Each talent, not to be downplayed by the other, has afforded him the platform to serve a higher calling.

Wiggins is very passionate about ministering in song which led him to the studio to record his single “I Will” featuring cousin Tamera Mowry-Housely. On the show, we got a glimpse of him in the studio going over lyrics and handing out directives to Tamera, “do it this way or don't do it at all”, he admonished (click on the video for the full interview). To say the least, Tamera got it together Jerome-style.

Reality television has boosted Wiggins into the limelight, out of the shadows and onto the stage. The fourth weekend in May, Jerome will be apart of two stage plays, “Side Effects...Hurting People, Hurt People” and “Why Am I Still Single?". When opportunity knocked, he answered. Jerome's character, Anthony Alexander, in “Side Effects” has to make some tough decisions on whether he should stay silent and support his sister. In the stage play “Why Am I Still Single?”, he plays the comedic postman, Tim, who's tempted to spill everybody's business. Both stage plays are held at the New Life Community Center in Carrollton, TX.
