Gospel super group Mary Mary has had lots of success thanks to their long list of hits when it comes to today’s most popular Gospel Music, but the sisters would become the target of immense criticism when they made the decision to do their own reality show. Mary Mary, a hit reality show on WEtv, is doing quite well ratings wise; but the things the gospel group has decided to show on camera has many people questioning if they might have made the wrong decision to open up their lives for the small screen. Regardless of disappointing some of their fans with the show, sisters Tina and Erica say they don’t regret opening up their lives and talking about the things that make a lot of their Christian brothers and sisters uncomfortable, including having healthy “bedroom” lives with their spouses. But now it appears that the sisters are ready to open up about some of the obstacles they have faced in their marriages. In a recent interview with Ebony Magazine, Tina Campbell opens up about the time she caught her husband cheating on her. She says:

“Once I became aware [of the affair], I initially wanted to kill my husband,” she admitted. “I was considering adjusting the will, the living trust and all that kind of stuff. I did physically try to stab him. Several times…I never got to the point of physical harm, not really, but my words…My words hurt.”

    Oh wow. Well it’s good they were able to work through it. Cheating is hard for most couples to overcome.

    I was a fan of these two until I watched their show. All I will say is I’m not shocked her husband cheated…

        Thank you. Negative and hurtful acts don’t have a gender.

    I use to watch their show it was good but that sister goo goo she rubbed me the wrong way. I applaud Tina’s honesty because most people in the gospel world would try to sweep their problems under the rug. I like her honesty.

    Oh wow! I can definitely relate to that anger of having a spouse cheat. I am happy that she was able to persevere and move on from that episode.

    She forgave her husband after he had an affair? Smh, couldn’t be me. I don’t care if we have kids together or not. I bet he will do it again, only the next time, he will be more discrete about it. I just don’t understand people who take cheating spouses back.

    I watch their show and it is very obvious that Teddy cheated or had “cheater tendencies” just by the way he always acted so quiet like (gotta watch them quiet ones) and by the way she always made such a big deal about constantly being home to spend time with him when they were traveling and working! It was obvious during their horse and carriage ride something was wrong.

    I love Tina & Erica! I love the show. And I’m not surprised Teddy cheated on her. He’s very selfish.
