During the last season of “Mary Mary,” most fans watched in horror as Tina Campbell dealt with the reality of her husband’s infidelity. Judging by this season’s trailer, it seems that the singer’s marriage is still suffering from Teddy’s decision, but she assures us that they have survived that storm. Now, both Tina and Erica are offering advice to women who may find themselves in a similar predicament. Peep their interview above.
If you thought the last season of “Mary Mary” was on ten and all of the kinks and wrinkles would have been ironed out by now, you might want to think again. In the season 4 trailer for the show, it seems that while Tina and Teddy are on the road to restoring their marriage, with a few bumps; it’s the relationship between Tina and Erica, and even Warryn, that might be taking a hit.
Evidently, Tina is still not over Erica leaving the group to pursue her solo career. And she’s let people know. Then, to add insult to injury, she’s taking meetings with their former manager Mitch.
Honestly, I don’t know if her partnering with Mitch again is real life or just for the cameras, specifically since Tina has always had the biggest problem with him. Either way, Lord knows he brought plenty of drama and that makes for great tv.
Anyway, check out the trailer for season 4 and let us know what you think. Will you be watching?
Erica Campbell Discusses Struggling With Guilt After Going Solo: “I Felt Like I Was Just Another Person Giving My Sister Grief”
Just as Erica Campbell began to truly flourish in her solo career; it seemed that her sister’s life was falling apart. As we witnessed on the last season of “Mary Mary,” Tina learned that her husband had been unfaithful. The “Help” singer admits that the timing of everything left her feeling guilty and as if she had somehow abandoned her sister.
“I felt like I was just another person giving my sister grief. I was like, ‘How can you do that?’” Campbell recently confessed during a chat with the Los Angeles Times.
The mother of three also feared that her sister would view her decision to step away as a betrayal, but has since been assured that Tina approves of her solo projects. Of course, Tina’s marital troubles weren’t the only issues plaguing the tightly knit Atkins clan. Erica and her sisters were also faced with the death of their father, Eddie. According to the singer, this season of struggle helped her to pen songs that people can easily connect to.
“I’m not a big fan of fluff-and-stuff music,” the 42-year-old explained. “There are times for that, when you just want to affirm that you’re happy. But life is ups and downs, and sometimes you need something to help you feel like you’re not going crazy all by yourself.”
For example, she revealed that “All I Need Is You” from her Grammy Award-winning album, Help, was birthed as she sang to God while driving down the 10 Freeway and concerns about going solo filled her mind. She sang the melody for her husband and producer Warryn Campbell the following day and they eventually molded it into the sweet-sounding ballad.
Thankfully, 10 months after the release of Help, that season has passed, but the journey has been well-documented through song for others who may be experiencing tough times.
“Every time I meet a person, they treat me like I’m their cousin or their friend: ‘Girl, I seen what you going through,'” she said. “I want them to see these down moments and feel encouraged for themselves — like, ‘OK, this is doable.'”

If you follow either Erica or Warryn Campbell on social media, you might have seen the very alarming message he posted on Instagram that his wife later regrammed.
3 days ago, at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Warryn posted this image and request that his followers pray for him.
Though the couple didn’t say at the time, Warryn said he felt like he was genuinely having a heart attack.
Well, the saints know that the power of prayer is very real. Because later that day Warryn was released from the hospital. And the heart attack scare turned out to be just gas. And in celebration, his family gave God a “just gas” praise.
Check it out in the video below.
Well, there’s a happy (and hilarious) ending for you. But in all seriousness, we’re happy to see that Warryn’s doing alright.
Gospel singer, Erica Campbell is in love with her husband, honey. And as some of y’all know, love has the tendency to overflow sometimes. And in the early hours of this morning Erica let some of hers spill over onto social media.
At around 3 am (Eastern) and 1 am (Pacific), she posted a picture of her producer husband Warryn Campbell. Nothing unusual about that. But the hashtags told the full story. See what she had to say below.
Mmmmm this guy sure does make me happy in sooo many ways… #lawdhamercy #goodstuff #mine #chocolatetastegood #grown #maybeishouldgetoffsocialmedia #ummm #goodnight #betterthingstodo #undefiled #latenight #hallelujah #satisfied #nasty
Oop… Christians know the “marriage bed is undefiled” scripture all too well. And for those of you who are unfamiliar, basically, anything goes once you’ve tied the knot.
I’m sure there may be some people who take issue with Erica putting her husband’s bedroom skills on Instagram but personally, I kind of dig it. So many times, we receive messages that sex and fun cease once a couple gets married. And of course the old antiquated attitudes of women not enjoying sex at all or as much as men, still persist. So good for Erica and Warryn.
What do you think about Erica’s post on Instagram? Is it too much or too cute?
If you’ve watched just an episode of the WE Tv reality show, “Mary Mary,” you know that Erica and Tina Campbell are very down to earth and like to enjoy life. And so last week after her performance in Jackson, Mississippi on the McDonald’s Gospel Tour, Erica stopped by Whatta Burger to grab something to eat. But she didn’t just order any ole kind of way, she tapped into her inner Inglewood. Lucky for us, her personal assistant captured the whole thing on film and then someone from Erica’s camp later posted it on Facebook.
Take a look at the hilarious video below.
And then check out how the staff reacted when they learned it was Erica in the backseat.

“You Stole My Life Away From Me!” Tina Campbell Breaks Down When Speaking On Teddy’s “Countless” Affairs
If you’ve been watching this season of Mary Mary, you already know pretty well about the pain that Tina Campbell has been dealing with after finding out that her husband, Teddy Campbell, stepped out on her while she was touring. However, as the season has gone on, Teddy revealed to not only Tina, but Warren also, that he cheated on her with quite a few women, saying there were “countless affairs.”
In a clip from the upcoming episode, Tina emotionally cracks when speaking on the betrayal, and how it has been made worse by the fact that Teddy keeps withholding the full story about his infidelity and tells her a little bit here, a little bit there. She shared her feelings not with Teddy in the scene, but with Erica, telling her what she wants to tell Teddy:
“You stole my life away from me. I’m angry. Why you gotta do me like this?! I was good to you, man!”
In her anger, she says that she thinks she wants to move on from Teddy.
“I don’t want him. He don’t deserve me. I don’t want him.”
However, it’s the words of her sister that get her to calm down. Erica shares how she got through infidelity in her own relationship (yes, she states it clearly in the new episode):
“You said you’ve never been through this, I have…I’m a tell you how you get better.”
Check out the interesting tip she shared with her sister in the clip below and let us know what you think of the whole scene. It’s quite heartbreaking to watch.
This week proved to be quite an interesting one in the Christian realm. Early in the week Gospel artist Tye Tribbett made a rather unpopular statement when he claimed homosexuality is natural and pointed out that what’s natural doesn’t necessarily mean it’s God’s best. At 44, Tyler Perry also revealed he found out the man he believed to be his dad all these years actually is not his biological father and his mother lied to him about it. And Gospel singer Erica Campbell hinted that her sister Tina isn’t the only Mary Mary sister whose been cheated on in her marriage. Whew! That’s a lot to digest but we’re talking about it all in “Did Y’all See?” Weigh in in the comments section.
You may have seen headlines questioning whether or not Erica Campbell’s marriage to Warryn had suffered infidelity, like her sister Tina’s. Fans of the reality show “Mary Mary” know that Erica pretty much addressed this. She all but said that at one point or another someone cheated. Her comments about what had transpired in her own marriage seemed to be pretty clear to me. But for clarity’s sake, let’s rehash.
In a scene where Warryn and Erica are in bed together, she tells him that Tina revealed the whole truth about Teddy’s affair to Ebony Magazine. Not surprisingly, Erica’s husband didn’t think it was a good idea for their brand.
“When we went through what we went through, I made it a point not be bring everybody else in it because it affects everybody else as well.”
So they definitely went through something…something similar to what Tina and Teddy are going through now.
And then if there was any confusion about exactly what happened, in her conversation with the film crew, Erica says this:
“I understand what Tina and Teddy are going through. I really understand. Just like I was strong, she can be strong. We weren’t the first women to go through that and we won’t be the last. “
For those of you who like to see with your own eyes, here’s the clip from the show.
Seems pretty clear to you right? “she was strong.” “We weren’t the first women to go through that…” Arguably, based on those comments, Warryn was the one who cheated and she was the strong one who was able to forgive and got through it.
So we find it incredibly surprising that during an interview with Hip Hollywood, Erica insinuated that perhaps Warryn wasn’t the one to step out of the relationship.
When she said that she knows a little something about infidelity, the outlet pushed her to expound. And that’s when she dropped this bombshell.
“I really understood what she was talking about. A lot of people always assume that it was him. You don’t know who it is. That’s something that’s between me and Warryn. Most people assume that it’s always the guy. That’s not always the case.”
Again, the proof is in the video below.
And while we know men certainly aren’t the only ones who cheat, I’m really not buying what Erica’s trying to sell us here. Seems like she’s trying to mix it up and introduce different theories and speculations so the public won’t have too much insight into she and her husband’s marital issues. Which I understand. Everyone doesn’t want their business on front street. Or they at least want to be able to choose which business they put out there. But she slipped up in that confessional and it can’t be undone. What’s said on camera, lives on forever in this internet age. If you ask me there’s no two ways about it.
But what do you think? Was Erica the one to cheat in her relationship? Or do you think Warryn was the one and now she’s trying to throw people off the trail?
