Many of us would agree that reality TV is rarely a good thing for celebrity couples who actually desire to stay together. But despite calling off her engagement, giving her rapper fiancé back his engagement ring and willingly airing out their dirty laundry for the world to see, Marry the Game star Tiffney Cambridge says that being on television has actually helped her relationship with The Game (aka Jayceon Taylor).
“I would say it helped it. I definitely don’t think that it did anything negative, but I think that being able to see yourself outside of yourself, and really watch how you handle situations and how you react, is very helpful,” Tiffney told Necole Bitchie.
“A lot of the times, these shows will tear your family apart or tear your relationship apart. I don’t really think that’s been the case for us. I have really been be able to look at our show and get a good retrospective thought process going on. Like, ‘Wow! That’s you? You really went through that, you handled yourself well girl!’” she continued.
The elementary school teacher also opened up about what pushed her to call off the engagement and how she felt about giving Jayceon his ring back.
“It was very difficult, because I want to be married. I didn’t give him the ring back because I don’t want to be with him or I don’t want to marry him. I just want our focuses to be the same. I don’t want it to be about anything materialistic. I don’t want it to be about a wedding ring, I want it to be about the commitment the ring signifies. What it stands for,” Tiffney confessed.
“How you gonna buy someone a 10k ring with a 2k commitment? You walking around with this big ol’ 10k ring on that you would think the person that gave it to you would make a commitment to be as big as the ring they gave you. Thats what we’ve been working on. Tryna get the size of the ring and commitment to match up. [Laughs].”
She went on to discuss why she believes that on-again, off-again boo isn’t exactly prepared to make a “10k commitment” just yet.
“Because Jayceon is still young, and he is a rapper! They like to go out all of the time. They like to club all the time. They got women around them all the time. They can be disrespectful at times. There are just certain things that a husband should and shouldn’t do. If everybody follows him on Twitter and IG, I mean you can look at it and say to yourself, ‘Okay, if this is my husband would I want my husband to be doing this right here?’ When you’re somebody’s husband you’re supposed to govern yourself accordingly, there are certain things that you just can’t do. We are just trying get him to that point.”
