Did He Do It For The Cameras? Tara Wallace Says Her Relationship With Peter Was Semi-Normal Before ‘Love & Hip Hop’
I remember watching the first episode of the current season of “Love & Hip Hop” and thinking to myself, “There’s no way that someone living as foul as Peter Gunz would sign up for a reality show.” Who in their right minds would know that they’re doing that much dirt and still volunteer to have their dirty laundry put on blast on national television? But just maybe it was all done to keep viewers engaged. During a recent interview with Mara the Hip Hop Socialite, Tara revealed that prior to the cameras rolling, her relationship with Peter was pretty normal.
“Before the show, we were functioning as a family,” explained the reality star. “We definitely had our issues; it was definitely things that I was fussing about, but nowhere near us not being together. Whatever the issues were, I kinda thought he was going through something, and that I needed to back off sometimes, or maybe I was being too hard on him, so we weren’t in the best of places, but I had no idea the severity of where we were.”
She went on to say that when filming for “Love & Hip Hop” first began, Amina was in a relationship with someone else.
“As far as I knew [Amina was in a relationship with someone else when they began filming], and they were still kind of going back-and-forth,” Tara continued. “So that’s kinda the place I was in my head, which is even why when we talk on Instagram, and people go ‘well why didn’t you see those pictures?’ Because as far as I knew, she was still going back-and-forth in her relationship, and her and Peter had just become friends. Now when I saw the pictures, of course I began to question, and I’m like that doesn’t make sense. I ‘m like, wait a minute – what’s going on here?”
Whether it was done for TV purposes or not, unfortunately, there are children stuck in the middle of the messy love triangle that Peter created. But so far, it looks like they’ve been shielded from the drama, as they aren’t even aware that their parents are no longer together.
“Our children don’t know exactly what’s going on,” said Tara. “Our children don’t understand that we’re going through a breakup, so I do bite a bit of the humble pie for the sake of our kids so that we don’t disturb the functionality of the household. But I’m moving to another apartment in the next couple of weeks, and we will not obviously be moving together, so they will know at some point. Very soon I will have to tackle and address this issue with my boys.”
One thing is for sure, Peter’s messy antics definitely secured them all a spot for next season.
