During an interview with EBONY magazine a few months back, we learned that the gospel singer attempted to stab her husband, Teddy Campbell, for stepping outside of their marriage. Now, on the current season of “Mary Mary,” Campbell confronts those demons for all of the world to see.
What may be intriguing to viewers, is that Campbell who recently sat down with CNikky, appears to take ” full responsibility” for her husband’s infidelity.
Check out a brief snippet from her interview below:
“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 got a baby!”
While many could argue that if Teddy was that unhappy, he could just leave the union, Campbell continues to defend her husband.
“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.”
Do you agree with Tina? Should both parties should be accountable when infidelity takes place in a relationship? Let us know your thoughts? – ruthie hawkins/@ruubabie
