Exclusive Interview: Mary Mary Gives Intimate Details Of The Infidelity, Why Tina Stayed & Why She Was To Blame

Mary Mary & Cherise Nicole

 

Mary Mary has been riddled with personal problems this season on their self titled reality show on We Tv. Their two year relationship with their manager, Mitchell is coming to complicated end (he is currently suing them for thousands of dollars) and the sisters tragically lost their father to stage 4 cancer.  In addition, Tina Campbell discovered that her husband Teddy was stepping out on her while she was on tour.  She confessed her very private issue to the world and in a decision that shocked many, she has decided to forgive her husband and stay together.  Although, her husband is clearly wrong for breaking their vow of marriage, Tina says that this situation has caused her to look in the mirror and take responsibility for her part in their decline.  She admits that their issues began when they started having children and she began to put her husband last.

The only up lifting thing that seems to be coming from this season is the launching of Erica Campbell’s solo career!  Her first solo album drops on March 25th and her single, ‘HELP,’ is fire!  Erica spoke to me about how her new album helped pull her family out of a dark place and why her fans inspire her.

What’s the greatest lesson you learned about yourself because of your husband’s infidelity?

“I Tina assume full responsibility for the issues that I contributed to the relationship.  I was controlling, talked too much.  And you can never be heard over me because when I wanna talk I got the floor and ain’t nobody gonna get it from me until I give it up.  Real talk. That was the way it was and I have to work on myself. You know what I mean?  I was selfish.  When we started having children it’s like, I forget that I have a responsibility as a wife.  And I’m questioning you like, ‘Really, what you want me to do?  I gotta baby!’  Even though that’s sometimes what you’re faced with, that ain’t the right spirit to do it in. And what happens is, you’re going on and you’re busy and you’ve got children and you’ve got work.  And what happens is your husband is last and you don’t realize that he’s last.  And if he has a problem with being last you’re like,’Well, what am I supposed to do?  You know that I’ve got a career?  You know that I’ve got these babies, you’re the one that got me pregnant!’ ”

“You want your husband to be the man and to take his place, but because ‘I’m a strong woman, I’m a this woman and I’m a that woman’ we busy stepping on our man.  Making him feel small.  And you know what?  I did that.  And I take responsibility for that.”

Why did your husband cheat?

“I know that I look good.  I know that I’m sexy.  I know that there’s not a problem when the doors are closed.  I know that I contribute well to my household as a woman and all of that.  And that’s not fronting and that’s not lying.  I know that.  But, when there is a lack of intimacy and there’s distance, how beautiful you are, how much you bring it and how sexy you…that does not matter!  Because you want to feel valued and when you don’t feel valued, sometimes you make the choices to go somewhere else where somebody’s paying a lot more attention and that’s what happened.”

Thanks ladies for being so open and honest with me.  Be sure to watch Mary Mary on Thursday nights on We Tv and pick up Erica Campbell’s 1st solo album available on March 25th!

Part 2 Why Tina Stayed & Why She Takes Responsibility For His Infidelity

 

  1. Dear Tina no one can be responsible for somebody else sins. Your
    husband is a grown man. When you get to Heaven God is not going
    to ask you about him he’s only going to ask you about you.
    From Been There.

    • Hi Jan, what you are saying is so true. But until you have been married and experience what she has experienced then you don’t know. I’ve been in her situation and she is simply stating her wrong in not attending to her husband. When a women doesn’t take care of her husband mentally and mouth en off he not listening he want someone who is listening to him he is human. I don’t justify what he did but everyone has their cross to bear.

    • Jane is absolutely right ! Tina can not take responsibility for her husbands actions .She talks incessantly which is probably indicative that she is in denial of her true feelings about this .

    • Women, our responsibility in a marriage is to love God enough to allow Him to direct your path in your marriage…. in your life. We should never ever feel we are responsible for an unfaithful husband or an abusive husband. You did not MAKE him cheat, you did not MAKE him abuse you!!!

      I have been there before and the 1st erroneous statement I made and felt was what did I do wrong!

      It may make good press or exciting scene on TV BUT, it’s a “Show” for profit. we cannot MAKE him do good or bad.

      • Listen to me,
        The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord. He may be directing your steps but whose directing his? Can you ever trust him again or will you always be watching? I thank you are giving him to much credit. Believe me this will come up again. Concerned

  2. Melinda says:

    Tina-
    I agree with Jane. You cannot blame yourself for what your husband decided to do wrong. He will have to go to God for what he decided to do. I can relate to what you are going through. My husband cheated, and as a result, a baby is now here. You talk about hurt. I ask God everyday to give me the strength. I’ve been tested for HIV and AIDS. Its obvious that my husband not only cheated, but put our lives in danger. Its been over a year now, and the road is still rough. God is able! God is a healer.

    • former same gender lover says:

      former same gender love

      I would like to say to each of you that commented I absolutely get all you are saying,when someone cheats on you it takes so much out of you to forgive and move forward.I have to thank GOD for Jesus I honestly thought I would loose my ever loving mind.See it matters not be it a women or a man married or dating when you have given your heart to someone been with them for many years and have all of your family loves them also.WHAT do you do? I was depressed for two years loosing my mind.Here is the truth of the matter JESUS bore that too forgive them and yourself live your life don’t shut down if you choose to stay communicate the way you did from the beginning get counseling.
      If you move on like I did let that go get help grieve ask GOD to heal that wound let GOD…

  3. I feel that vwhat Tina to forgive not to blame yourself for his mistakes but God forgive those who despitfully use and abuse he forgive 7 times 7 for everything we do. I know were you are trust me my husband cheated on me and it broke me down. Stepped back and looked at myself to see were I went wrong. Its hard but you can make it with gods help. He did it for me and he will do it forbyou
