Mowry opened up about acting with the Olsen Twins, sisters Tia and Tamara, the state of TV family sitcoms today, ABCFamily’s Baby Daddy, a possible Full House Reunion and comments on fellow child-star Miley Cyrus and her infamous VMA performance.

"I’m a fan of the Miley… I like the image that she’s letting people know that ‘hey I’m a grown up I can literally do what I want to do. It’s allowed.’ I completely agree with what she’s saying."

Favorite Memory of Full House and Olsen twins (10:25 - 10:54):
"Growing up during Full House, I remember being in a scene and the twins were so young that they didn't memorize their lines, they just didn't. So I'm like wait, I know my lines...why is there a lady like hunched over whispering. Like they would have some one whisper the lines to them in the scene...wait can you help me out."

On Full House Reunion (11:48 - 12:00):
"People loved those shows, so I am totally down for those things and just to be around that group of people you grew up with awhile would be amazing and the fans would love it."

On working with Sisters Tia & Tamera (14:18 - 14:38):
"There's always been that helpful line between each other, sure we did start at the same time pretty much, they don't ask me more than I ask them, its just like if we need help, we just go, its pretty natural and its cool cause its family."

On the State of TV Family Sitcoms Today (24:22 - 25:04):
"I think that's why people gravitated towards shows like Sister to Sister, Wayans Brothers and Smart Guy, because even though it was you know predominately a black cast, any race felt comfortable watching it and we hit on issues that every color goes through, so um, I think that's sorta missing now a days..People say it all the time, TV is not like it used to be, you can't sit down really with family and watch a really good sitcom anymore...except Baby Daddy...which is one of the things that I was so attracted to cause I had a sense of a color less TV show."

On playing Tucker on "Baby Daddy" (45:40-47:50):
"Its my first time jumping out of myself completely and becoming this character that is Tucker, because he is so ridiculous and so crazy. It really requires you to go there for some of the jokes because if you don’t you will just look stupid. Tucker can be mean sometimes but he is also very loveable. He’s like an onion there’s always something else you find out. Tucker has got a little ghetto in him, so every once in a while I’ll say something really hood."

On Miley Cyrus (1:03:58-1:04:55):
"I’m a fan of the Miley… I didn’t really like her performance at the VMAS. But I like the image that she’s letting people know that ‘hey I’m a grown up I can literally do what I want to do. It’s allowed.’ I completely agree with what she’s saying. She should maybe not twerk all the time, but I feel like maybe its just for that single."
