Tina Campbell of Mary Mary Talks About Her Husband’s Infidelity: “I Did Physically Try To Stab Him”

"Ebony"

Well, this is somewhat of a surprise.

Gospel duo Mary Mary has opened their lives to the public with two season of their WE Tv self-titled reality show but there’s one thing that we had no knowledge about: one of the sisters has dealt with her husband having an affair. This according to Vibe Vixen.

Tina Campbell, the more boisterous one of the Marys admitted in the June 2013 issue of Ebony magazine that her husband, musician Teddy Campbell, had an affair and her reaction was one most of us have seen on shows like Snapped:

“Once I became aware [of the affair], I initially wanted to kill my husband,” she admitted. “I was considering adjusting the will, the living trust and all that kind of stuff. I did physically try to stab him. Several times…I never got to the point of physical harm, not really, but my words…My words hurt.”

It should be pointed out that so far, that is the only snippet that has been released about the interview. There’s not been any word on when this affair happened , if there was a reason stated (yes, we know cheating is a choice but some people give reasons for their affairs) or how they got through it.

During season one of their show, Tina and Teddy took a carriage ride and Teddy expressed that he’d not been as happy in the marriage due to Tina’s heavy schedule in the group. It was in that moment that Tina decided to devote more time to her husband and family.

The June issue of Ebony hits newsstands on May 7th.

Are you surprised by this revelation?

    I am KESHYI MENIYE from UK. I never believed in love spells or magic until i met this spell caster once when i went to Africa in may this year on a business summit. I meant a man who’s name is Dr. OBUDO (dr.obudospellhome@hotmail.com) he is really powerful and could help cast spells to bring back one’s gone, lost, misbehaving lover and magic money spell or spell for a good job or luck spell .I’m now happy & a living testimony cos the man i had wanted to marry left me 3 weeks before our wedding and my life was upside down cos our relationship has been on for 4years. I really loved him, but his family was against us and he had no good paying job. So when i met this spell caster, i told Dr .OBUDO what happened and explained the situation of things to him. At first i was undecided, skeptical and doubtful, but i just gave it a try. And in 8 days when i returned to UK, my boyfriend (now husband) called me by himself and came to me apologizing that everything had been settled with his mom and family and he got a new job interview so we should get married. I didn’t believe it cos the spell caster only asked for my name and my boyfriends name and all i wanted him to do. Well we are happily married now and we are expecting our little kid, and my husband also got the new job and our lives became much better. His email is DR.OBUDOSPELLHOME@HOTMAIL.COM

  • justlistening

    I know this statement is late coming, but I just started watching this during their last season. If I recall correctly when erica and tina were sitting down talking about this with someone, tina said that “the affair had been going on during their ENTIRE marriage.” What that tells me is that he was seeing this other woman “before” they got married. If I am wrong, I am sorry. Also, he can’t blame it on her career and her being on the road, he knew what he getting into because he’s an accomplished musician himself. If it’s true that he has been unfaithful before the marriage, then he should never have married her, and maybe all he saw was a bank account.

    I like them, especially Tina. She seems to have real conviction about what she does. It’s a shame her husband cheated, but that was HIS choice, no amount of time with him would have prevented that. It’s her choice to forgive him and I hope God blesses her efforts

    Yes. On the show tina seems just a little to bossey she stop demanding that teddy do this and teddy do that. They both keep on having babies time one sister have a baby next thing you know the other one gets pregnant I know God said be fruitful but come on thats not what he means to me it does not matter if you have all the money in the world give your body a break. And when you get pregnant please please stop complaining so much.Quit doing so many shows and tours and take better care of your husband put him before shows and maybe you can make him happy and next time he will not cheat on you. Let him wear the pants in the house yea.

  • Tony Tony

    It take s a strong women to stay. BUT Tina seems strong hope she’s ready for a lifetime of forgiveness because she’ll never forget this. Their marriage is tarnished now. This probably is not the first time. He just happen to tell her this time. I would leave him because of resentment!

  • hedmaime .

    I think Teddy knew for a while he was losing his job from the Tonite Show. And sometimes when men feel like they are losing control that spiraling emotion is overwhelming. And the result may be infidelity. Not saying that is what happened, but im sure him losing his job had a lot to do with him stepping out on his wife. If a man does not have control over his career, no control at home….he is going to seek out ways to excercise that need for control. Tina is a hot headed, loud mouth, DRAMA QUEEN who will never NOT use an opportunity to throw this in his face. Along with his lack of employment. I hope she gets a handle on her issues with men, cuz she has some serious
    “DADDY” issues. And I hope Teddy keeps his D in his pants.

    I LOVE Mary Mary and am glad Tina didn’t kill her husband, although I understand her being extremely upset about what he did. I’m glad she was able to forgive. She can spend time at home with her family while Erica focuses on her new solo career.

  • ♏ ®

    ROTFL I LOVE Tina Campbell and wouldn’t have expected her reaction to be anything LESS than “I tried to kill him–several times!” She’s not a weak woman at all. Don’t get it twisted–it takes MORE strength to stay than to walk away. Love is stronger than pride….don’t judge a thing you haven’t been through.

    • SOKSOKSO

  • Fergie

    I’m not surprised because Tina kept popping up pregnant. She has control over her own body. I don’t think her husband was consulted about having all of those children.

    • Trena

      If he’s sleeping with her, there is always the chance for pregnancy. If he didn’t want children, he should handle it on his end.

      • Sharon

        Not only handle at his end, Tina is just as responsible for doing her part. Both parties are responsible.

    • Just saying!!

      I don’t understand what this has to do with him cheating. If anything it means he was getting some!

  • Fergie

    I am not surprised at all. I do not like Tina….at all.

    No. i am not surprised. It is sad that people make bad choices to cheat, but the famous excuse “it just happened” Affairs just don’t happen. I wish for once that people will stop cheating and be faithful. If the spouse is not doing what they suppose to do, they need to try to discuss it.

    I LOVE MARY MARY!!!!!!!! NO ONE IS PERFECT!

  • drea

    I love Mary Mary and their songs minister to me and I love the way that they were so real with their lives. Christians make mistakes to.

    • olivia

      Making a conscious decision to have an intimate relationship with someone you are not married to is not a mistake.

      He knew he was wrong and did not care…period. He sought the opportunity and went for it. S3xual relations don’t happen by mistake, he did it on purpose.

      • http://www.facebook.com/andy.hans6 Andy Hans

        With all due respect Olivia, that is a little too judgmental and dismissive. Yeah at the time he made a choice to cheat. It was a bad choice and people make dumb choices which in turn lead to mistakes. Being cheated on is absolutely horrible but life goes on. All of us fall short. We can either stay or go and forgiveness benefits both parties. I maybe in the minority here but we need to stop acting as if cheating s the end of life. It is indeed horrible and devastating to a relationship but why hold on to it? Why let it make us bitter for the next one who may very well be good? And furthermore people cheat for different reasons, some people are dogs and some people are lacking something at home, or some have lost the connection Some can be saved, others not. But all can be forgiven.

        • http://www.facebook.com/nikia.dshiznit Nikia D-Shiznit

          If someone cheats when the opportunity comes, even if they are repentant, who’s to say when the opportunity arises AGAIN that he might not do it again? Forgiveness benefitted the husband. Not only did he get some on the side, he still has his family and that comfortable lifestyle, along with her unconditional, faithful, love. Cheating is a choice.

          • Just saying!!

            PREACH!!! I COMPLETELY disagree with Andy. When you truly love someone you don’t look outside your marriage. If you aren’t ready, don’t get married–PERIOD!!

        • olivia

          I was not being judgmental at all. I really do not care what his reasons were but it was no accident.

          He wanted the affections of another woman, he found one, fed her a few lines and got her in bed.

          Infidelity is a deliberate act, not a mistake. Mistakes are not planned in advance.

        • kierah

          Andy, did you mean to reply to Olivia? All Olivia said is that cheating is not a mistake – it’s a conscious act/decision.

          That is not a judgment. That is fact.
          Whether or not you or anyone else thinks that cheating is a dealbreaker in a relationship wasn’t part of the post.

          • Anonymous

            A lot of people have made a conscious act or decision and later looked back and said, “wow, that was a dumb mistake”. Have you never done anything stupid or ill-thought in your life and looked back once you got older and said, “damn, I shouldn’t have done that. I thought it was right at the time, but I was wrong” and so you then identify it as a lapse in judgment and mistake on your part?Or maybe you’ve never made a mistake in life? Chances are because of the emotional/mental state that a person is in when the decision is made, they don’t view it as a mistake at that moment. But when the smoke clears and growth happens, you’re able to see how and why it was a mistake and hopefully be in touch enough with yourself to keep it from happening again. So yes, cheating is a conscious act/decision but that doesn’t mean that someone can’t come to view it as a mistake. Just simply state that you’re a person who will never look at it as such–but please know that that’s your way of thinking and there plenty of others who don’t think like you and are far more forgiving and understanding of the human emotional and mental design.

          I agree. Not to say that his cheating is justifiable but dealing with someone who rubs you the wrong the way can become too much!

  • Rosemary Davis

    I hate too see anyone have problems in their marriage but it look like she put her career first and her family came second.So now she want too take out time for the husband and kids but sometimes it is too little too late this man has already got the taste of cheating and he probably will do it again and no matter how a couple try to make mends adultery always leave a stain on the marriage one that want wash out trust and loyalty becomes issues in the marriage that some can’t overcome as hard as they may try which ultimately ends in divorce but I wish them the best.

  • blessed

    Sometimes people in the limelight share too much of their personal life. I really do not think this was our business!!! I pray that this story coming out foes not hurt their relationship.

  • Guest360

    It definitely explains her need to be more focused on her family rather than her job. I didn’t really understand why she could be a part of a musical duo yet not want to go on tour and promote the music. It explains alot. I’m glad that they’ve worked it out and I hope they continue on this path.

      No, you’re not! Just saw them at One Love and there’s nothing that impressed me about. Their reality show is more indicative of them than their music. They didn’t bother to make eye contact with anyone as we all stood in line. I won’t be spending a dime on their music.

        I meant as they walked the line past everyone, no eye contact, smile or anything.

          I’m sure had they not been going through some stuff they would have thought more about your feelings. They have to do stuff they signed up to do, but at the time they were going through things like their daddy having stage 4 cancer. Be happy they showed up!

            I see your point but keep in mind, THIS IS THEIR JOB!!!
