Mary Mary’s Baby Sister Goo Goo And Her Boo Boo Justin Have Called It Quits

May 1, 2013  |  


Remember the first day Goo Goo, real name Thomasina Atkins, introduced Erica and Tina to Justin on an episode of “Mary Mary?” The sisters put ol’boy through the ringer immediately, but that didn’t stop Goo from making things official — for over a year. But now the couple has confirmed that they’ve called it quits.

If you’re anything like us, you might be saying “Good!” Not that we’re happy at the thought of two people breaking up, it’s just that Justin seemed like a bit of a jerk, especially when he overstepped his relationship bounds and rolled up on Mitch questioning him about Goo’s work as a stylist. Regardless of outsider opinion of him, Goo insists the split was amicable, telling AlwaysAList things just simply didn’t work out.

“Justin and I are no longer together. It’s nothing horrible or bad or anything like that. It just kind of didn’t work out. There were some things we needed to work on and they just kind of didn’t work themselves out.

“I pulled back and looked at the overall relationship and I just thought it would be best if we went our separate ways just as friends,” she said before adding that Justin is a “good guy!”

Goo was also quick to defend Justin’s image on “Mary Mary,” and said “demanding schedules” and “her inability to travel to Atlanta as much” were a big part of the reason the relationship ended.

“I feel like the show didn’t paint him in the best light,” she said. “Justin has been the most supportive man I’ve ever had in my life. Very warm, very kind, very helpful. Never threatened by anything. He didn’t have an issue with me being me, he always supported that and that was something I just wasn’t used to. If there was something that was important to me, it was important to him.”

Likewise, Justin had only good things to say about Goo after the split, saying:

“I’d like to thank Goo for being the very best woman in the world,” he said. “She is the classiest and most-caring individual I have met to date, and I will always love her!

“I’d just like to express my deepest gratitude to everyone who supported me and Goo and our relationship. It was not in vain. We are still great friends and I hope that our relationship can just be an example of how mature adults handle life and its seasons.”

We shall see. What do you think about Goo and Justin’s split?

    Lol I know Tina is happy! But he really dud seem shady…like potentially controlling and immature. If I heard correctly she’s 10 years older than him so that could be where the immaturity stems from. And btw MN why you won’t let me login!?

    The show didn’t “paint him in the best light” but that’s the only picture of him we got to see so how can we not feel relieved that she’s done with him. It’s hard to accurately judge a situation if you can’t see both sides. Nevertheless, I wish them both well with their future relationships.

    Justin seemed a bit immature. It’s good the split isn’t ugly. Good luck to them both!

      Oh my God, that was the first thing that came to mind to comment about and was still thinking of how to describe it as I scrolled down. I thought it was creepy whenever he did it.
