Tisha Campbell-Martin, perhaps best known for her role as Gina on the hit sitcom “Martin,” kept a huge secret from the public until recently. The married mother of two decided that she has kept quiet long enough and it was now time for her to use her star power to open a discussion up about surviving rape. While making an appearance on “The Daily Helpline,” the veteran actress admitted she was raped at the age of three. “When I was 3 I was raped, by an older person.
