Nia Long and Sommore are two very well-known and successful ladies in the entertainment business. However, they’re each known as two very separate individuals. Not many know that the two are actually related to each other. If we’re being technical, the two women are half-sisters. They have the same father but different mothers. However, no one would have ever guessed that the two are at all associated with each other as they’re never seen in public together. The reasoning behind it, however, is much more than just a sibling rivalry.They’re two independent and established African-American female celebrities with fabulous short haircuts.
If we’re being exact, they’re actually half-sisters. The long-time actress and hilarious comedian share the same father but different mothers.
The comedian claimed that the two sisters would try to hit each other up for the holidays but we’ve just recently learned that, that may be a lie.
Despite how publicly known each woman is, the relationship between the two is completely in the dark because it’s non-existent.
Nia will be turning 46 years old this year, while Sommore is 51 — making her four years older.
She’s also featured in films like “Boyz N The Hood,” “Friday,” “In Too Deep,” “Boiler Room,” “Big Momma’s House,” “Are We There Yet?” and so many more.
In addition to her stand-up comedy, she’s also appeared in films such as “Friday After Next,” “Soul Plane,” and “Dirty Laundry.”
You might have also seen Sommore do some guest appearances on television sitcoms like The Parkers and The Hughleys. She’s also been featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show.
Nonetheless, many people by now have found out about the two being biological sisters.
Doc is known for being a remarkable poet and author from Atlanta, Georgia. But you might wonder, why are the two ladies never seen together?
Her mother was Talita (née Gillman), who was both a teacher and printmaker.
Nia’s parents were divorced when she was only two years old. When her mother decided to move to Iowa City, Nia went along with her to study fine arts.
Nia’s mother and her fiance wound up calling off their wedding. Nia, however, chose to stay in Los Angeles anyways.
She did much more than the bare minimum. Along with her academic classes, Nia also studied tap, gymnastics, jazz, ballet, guitar and acting. She eventually graduated from Westchester High School in 1989.
She attended Out Lady of the Divine Shepherd and The Pennington School. She later graduated from McCorristin Catholic High School in 1985.
When most people think of African American celebrity sisters, they think of those that are extremely close to each other.
They envision sisters like Tia and Tamera Mowry, Venus and Serena Williams, and sometimes even the Braxton sisters.
In fact, if it weren’t for the media leaking the news that the two were related, nobody would have ever guessed it.
It’s the only reasoning people thought made sense since the two are never seen together.
Although the two sisters have the same father, they consider themselves as technically “not sisters.”
This is actually a common case amongst half-siblings. Because they’re not fully related (same mother and father), they feel a distance that full-blooded siblings don’t experience.
She admitted that even though the two will will act friendly with each other in public, they don’t share any real bond.
Because Nia grew famous while Sommore was still starting out, she didn’t want to use Nia’s name to help set her career.
It honestly doesn’t change much of their relationship. When Sommore was asked if she ever gets asked about Nia, however, she offered a funny answer.
“You don’t know how many men offer, ‘Please can I come to the family reunion, please…?'”
