On this season of WeTV’s Mary Mary, gospel singer Tina Campbell contends with the shocking news Teddy Campbell, her husband of 13 years, cheated while she was on tour.
“Life got real,” Tina told Wendy Williams this week. “I revealed it. I don’t like being hostage to my own secrets and all that. I’ve watched people live with shame and embarrassment. I’m going to do shame for a little while, embarrassment for a little while, then I’m gonna get over it ’cause life goes on.”
Tina’s raw emotional state was also apparent in a Mary Mary season three sneak peek: “I got to get on the stage and I got to act like everything is all good… And it’s not all good. I’m dying inside. I need all the help that God can give because my situation is toe up.”
Despite her evident heartbreak, Tina was determined to make her marriage work — even though finding forgiveness and regaining trust for Teddy was easier said than done.
“In the middle of it, I thought, ‘Why did I do this? This is too hard. Everybody sees me falling apart,'” Tina told Bossip. “Now, that I’m smiling again, I’m not mad that I did it. Because if we don’t see that people make it through stuff, sometimes we don’t know that we can.”
In a previous post to the Mary Mary website, Tina said part of the healing process involved being introspective.
“My hope turned into hopelessness and despair and I became unwilling to forgive and fight, until God showed me myself,” the mother of five said last May. “My husband’s struggle, was with sexual immorality BUT I have struggled with anger, rage, unforgiveness, pride, just to name a few, for over two decades.”
Since then, it seems Tina and Teddy have made strides toward repairing their relationship. There are absolutely no signs of separation — and she even posted a picture in January calling Teddy her “favorite guy.”
