The explosive third season of “Mary Mary” has started and viewers got a first look at what one of the Marys, Tina Campbell, went through after her husband, Teddy, stepped out of their marriage. Tina revealed the affair a few months ago in an interview with “Ebony” magazine, but now with the show being aired, it looks like Tina is taking the blame for her husband’s actions.
While speaking with “CNikki,” Tina opened up about their relationship:
When asked about her husband’s cheating she said:
“I, Tina, assume full responsibility for the issues that I contributed to the relationship. I was controlling, talked too much. And you can never be heard over me because when I wanna talk I got the floor and ain’t nobody gonna get it from me until I give it up. Real talk. That was the way it was and I have to work on myself. You know what I mean? I was selfish. When we started having children it’s like, I forget that I have a responsibility as a wife. And I’m questioning you like, ‘Really, what you want me to do? I gotta baby!’
Even though that’s sometimes what you’re faced with, that ain’t the right spirit to do it in. And what happens is, you’re going on and you’re busy and you’ve got children and you’ve got work. And what happens is your husband is last and you don’t realize that he’s last. And if he has a problem with being last you’re like,’Well, what am I supposed to do? You know that I’ve got a career? You know that I’ve got these babies, you’re the one that got me pregnant!’ You want your husband to be the man and to take his place, but because ‘I’m a strong woman, I’m a this woman and I’m a that woman’ we busy stepping on our man. Making him feel small. And you know what? I did that. And I take responsibility for that.
What do you think? Should Tina take responsibility for her husband’s decision to have an affair?
