Last year, in an interview with Ebony, singer Tina Campbell admitted to trying to stab her husband, Teddy Campbell, after she found out about his infidelity.
“Once I became aware [of the affair], I initially wanted to kill my husband,” she told the mag. “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. ”
Now, in conjunction with the current season of reality series Mary Mary, where cameras go inside of the issue, the other half of the famous gospel duo takes “full responsibility” for her husband’s infidelity and explains how she forgave him.
“I, Tina, assume full responsibility for the issues that I contributed to the relationship,” she told CNikky. “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!’”
“I decided that I wanted to make a decision to forgive. It was not easy, but I am grateful that I survived.”
But what’s with women being so quick to take the blame for their man’s affairs?
