Instead of pointing the finger at her husband, gospel singer/reality star Tina Campbell is taking ownership for her part in her troubled marriage. If you’re fans of the popular gospel group, Mary Mary, it’s highly likely that you heard the alarming news, when Tina shared that her husband, Teddy, had been unfaithful in their marriage. She’s talked about it in her explosive EBONY magazine interview, along with the group’s reality show. And now that the smoke has cleared, she’s giving more insight. In an interview with CNikky she says:
“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!’
She adds that she didn’t realize it at the time, but she made her spouse feel small. She shares:
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 are your thoughts on Tina’s perspective? Do you agree that she played a part in her husband cheating?
