‘Tara And I Were In A Real Dark Place:’ Peter Gunz Defends Marrying His Side Chick
So at this point, we’re all pretty aware that marrying the side chick is a common theme in the Love & Hip Hop franchise. Not long after the last season of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta concluded, we learned that Stevie J married his side-chick-turned-main-squeeze, Joseline Hernandez. And as we all witnessed during the last two episodes of Love & Hip Hop New York, reality TV newcomer Peter Gunz is following suit. Most people are still scratching their heads and wondering why Peter would leave his apparent happy home with Tara to marry his “mistress.” During a recent interview with Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club, Peter tried his best to answer that question.
“It’s still the hardest question in the world to answer. I’m with Amina. Amina and I are married. You know what? Again, I know y’all wanna kill me out there, all the women wanna kill me out there. I’m only giving my best explanation and that’s not an excuse. It’s wrong. It was dead wrong, but Tara and I were in a real dark place. I don’t know what you’ll see on the show, but we were in a dark place and I felt like it was the end of the road for our relationship. Me and Amina were friends at first, the we started dealing with each other,” he said.
He added that he married Amina to get her to wait for him.
“Just to show Amina that, you know, ‘Wait for me. I promise,’ and she’s like ‘You lying, you lying, you still there.’ I jumped out of the window and did something I regret. Tara didn’t deserve that. “
Oh, and in case you were wondering, Peter says that he and Amina were intoxicated when they decided to get hitched.
“It was definitely one of those nights where everybody was drinking. And it was like, ‘I promise you, I love you, let’s do it.”
As for those rumors that Tara is a trained actress and this entire love triangle is being fabricated for TV purposes, Peter reassures fans that all of the messiness that they’re seeing is real.
“Tara is definitely an actor and when I got the call to do ‘Love & Hip Hop’ I said ‘Hey, you came here years ago to do TV. This might not be a bad thing for you to do.’ And in Tara’s mind it was like, ‘Yeah, then I can find out what he’s doing behind my back.'”
