Tina Campbell, one half of the Grammy Award-winning gospel music duo Mary Mary, publicly addressed infidelities within her marriage earlier this year and now fans will witness those issues in the upcoming season of her show "Mary Mary."
Campbell, 39, is married to gospel drummer Teddy Campbell, 38, who has also worked as the percussionist for "The Tonight Show" with Jay Leno. The singer first opened up about her husband's previous infidelities in the June issue of Ebony magazine and let fans, friends and family know how she was working to resolve the issue on ilovemarymary.com.
However, in the upcoming third season of her WE tv reality television show, Tina reveals the hurt and pain that she felt after learning about his infidelities.
"I gotta stand in front of these people and be inspirational," Tina says in between tears in a preview of the show. "I am so broken."
In the "Mary Mary" preview that has made its way to WE TV, Tina is pictured video chatting with her husband while explaining her frustrations to him.
"All these years that I spent with you was a lie and it hurts," she tells him.
Earlier this year, Tina asked fans to support her and participate in a fast on ilovemarymary.com.
"I'm assuming that many of you have seen or heard about our article in Ebony that discussed the challenges of overcoming infidelity in our marriage," the singer wrote on behalf of both herself and her husband. "Well since the article, the challenges have worsened. My hope turned into hopelessness and despair and I became unwilling to forgive and fight, until God showed me myself. My husband's struggle, was with sexual immorality BUT I have struggled with anger, rage, unforgiveness, pride, just to name a few, for over two decades."
The singer blamed the devil for using strongholds from the couple's individual childhoods to break them apart and spoke about their plan to engage in prayer while fasting.
"Instead of being mad at each other we're mad at the devil and we're ready to fight," she wrote.
WE TV has yet release an air date for the third season of the series which will also showcase Tina's sister Erica's issues with her voice and solo career along with the group's issues with their former manager, Mitchell Solarek.
