: One of the sisters on Mary Mary Tina (The RED HEAD) confessed in this months Ebony magazine that her husband cheated on her with a "family friend." She claimed that dude hid the affair for TWO YEARS and only finally confessed to it.
They are a Christian couple so Tina is trying to work it out. But it don't look like she can handle it. Peep what she posted on Facebook yesterday:
Hi fans and friends. It’s Tina. I hope all of you are well and I thank you for all the love and support you’ve shown my sister and I over the years.
Well, Im actually writing you on behalf of my husband Teddy and I. 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. Well since the article, the challenges have worsened. My hope turned into hopelessness & 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 2 decades. The devil wanted to use strongholds that took hold of our lives in our childhood, to remain and destroy us as adult. So now instead of being mad at each other we’re mad at the devil and we’re ready to fight.
Today we began a 30 day fast (May 24th-June 22nd) for complete deliverance & restoration. If u are able to, please fast and/or pray daily that God would answer our prayer and give us a deeper love & commitment to him and to each other. We believe he still works miracles and he can give us the greatest marriage we could have ever imagined. We can pray alone BUT your prayers will certainly help.
Fast . . . girl . . . you need to GET AWAY FROM THAT MAN fast. Any man that would do you THAT DIRTY . . . ain't nobody you need to be forgiving!!!
According to the Bible,divorce is immoral,and it goes against God. So I understand why she is trying to save her marriage. But,d@mn,you know? I can't see myself sticking beside someone that couldn't be faithful to me,when I was faithful to him. That'll be the only thing that I think about when I look at him. The vision of him being with another woman,would've been too much for me to handle. I can tell you one thing,she's better than me,because our marriage would've be over.
Oh Well...........Pagan Baal Christians don't believe in keeping any of Gods laws so She should hav nothing 2 complain about...........All these old heads R deceived into thinking Esau has them on these reality shows Bcus there talented............Esau has one agenda & thats to separate the children of Israel...... he's using these two silly pagan baal peor Christians to do it................Esau can't afford to lose his kingdom & his empire.......he knows his rulership depends on keeping Israel sleep & caught up in nonsense...............Esau is focused on going after the one who carry's the seed of Israel & thats the BLACK MAN...........he's trying to stop the blk man from breeding with his own kind so he will hav more time here in this earth................Getting rid of the blk man out of the house & pushing all of them on white women will leave the blk women by herself.............Esau knows if Ur men walk out on U..........(blk women)...........Ur going to go searching for Ur God but instead of giving U the God of Israel..........Esau is going to give U the God that he chooses for U................& thats this demonic pagan baal Christianity............Esau doesn't care about U worshiping the God of Israel, it's just Esau knows U still have all these little black boys in Ur home raising the True Gods of the earth so Esau can't afford for U to teach Ur kids this truth so Esau gives U a pagan God to push on Ur kids...........this is why a lot of young boys pickup a h0m0sexual demon in these Churches Bcus of these silly blk women teaching them Christianity.............old heads R destroying our ppl & keeping us under the white mans rulership............WAKE UP 1/3rd ........this is all God is looking for & when he gets 1/3rd of Israel in this truth............we can leave this place to BURN!!!
It's always good to have prayer in numbers...that's why she posted on Facebook. Just be glad these internet sites are being used for something that is actually good for the soul....prayer.
For once I agree with you MTO, Adultery is an acceptable reason for divorce in God's eye Matt 5:32 & 9:19. He's not gonna stop for the entire duration of their marriage, I believe "Once a cheater, always a cheater" and with a close a friend at that??!? That's Triflin! smh
People give the devil too much credit. What happened to free will? But two years though? With a family friend?? You let him use this as an excuse, he will continue to not take responsibility for his actions.
Two years. Not one time. This wasn't a mistake but a conscious choice.
Get your life before he take it from you.
I hope that they can work it out, but (and there's always a BUT) I don't think that I could forgive Teddy. Or as they say you can forgive, but you difinetly don't forget. Cheating with a close friend is to unforgiveable. It's just human nature for some men & women to cheat at some point in their marriage or life, which is so sad especially when ther is a lot of young kids involved. It's ok to say GOD this or that, but I don't think that GOD meant for anyone to be a fool or miserable for the rest of their lives. Do what's best for you Tina, and good luck.
I totally agree with everything you all are saying her Husband was whining and always thinking about himself and kept blaming her for praising God and doing what she love doing. Why would any man ask you too choose and then cheat on top of that! I will Divorce him and ask God to forgive me!
It's the same song! Women jump through hoops trying to take care of the family! A family men claim they want! Some even go on TV and scream to the world about loving their man and putting him first as Tina did the whole series! And the whole time! He was singing in the Church and screwing her friend!!!!Â
No matter how sexually/intimate she was (as seen on TV) he still was greedy!Â
Do all men cheat?! I think so! Just because the sun is shining!Â
Do all women cheat?! I think not! Just because their man hasn't given them a reason to!Â
Hahaha! I guess men are head of the house-hold! Lead by example or reap what you sow! 1+1...idiots! Smh!Â
If this was a hit and run ,she should forgive him, and try to save her marriage, but this man had a two yr relationship with this woman, at this point he is in love with the other woman. If he had not been caught the relationship would still be going on. Tina'' Woman up ,and give this man his walking paper.
ON A TELEVISION SHOW called Sunday Best I saw one of these chicks from Mary Mary, who was appearing as a judge. I was not a regular viewer, but I certainly recall seeing one if not both of them on that show.
I was quite disturbed by what I saw on the show, and for that reason I could never watch that show again. It was the behavior of the Mary Mary girl. It may have been Tina, but again I do not know them that well, because I never watched the show again. It was definitely a girl from Mary Mary and she resembles the redhead girl in the photo above in this article.
In any case, here is what happened, which let me know that the Mary Mary girl had some serious issues.
There was a male contestant on the singing competition on the show and the other host Kirk Franklin gave the young man a hug to encourage him. It was a hearty hug and appeared very brotherly. I thought it was something the young male needed, because I could see that he was nervous about the contest.
But when Kirk Franklin hugged that young male, that girl from Mary Mary who was sitting on the judges panel HAD A FIT. I think it was Tina. SHE SCEAMED AT KIRK FRANKLIN and yelled WHAT IS THIS??? As she was referring to the way Kirk Franklin embraced the young man. There was nothing wrong with how he hugged him, I was looking right at it on national TV. And Tinas voice was so blaring that both Kirk Franklin and the young male contestant immediately stopped hugging, reflexively. They were onstage, of course. Tina sounded like TYRANT at that moment, and GOD KNOWS SHE DID. I could never forget it.
THAT RIGHT THERE was a very very very very very very very nasty and judgmental act on that Mary Mary girls part. It really did something to me, God knows it did, and I could never stomach her since that day.
AND NOW in this article about the Facebook post, this same Mary Mary girl states that she struggles with anger, rage, unforgiveness, pride, just to name a few of her shortcomings.
THIS IS NO SURPRISE, because what she did on the Sunday Best show when she screamed at Kirk Franklin for hugging that young male contestant was unspeakable. It was so ugly that I could never watch that show again.
She just does not strike me as a good woman, based on that episode I just described on Sunday Best. It is no surprise at all that a man would not be faithful to her. She is not a nice woman, from that episode I saw on Sunday Best. And I know that I am a very perceptive person. I have a way of discerning things. This Mary Mary girl called Tina struck me as a very angry and contentious woman.
It is better to dwell in the wilderness, than with a contentious and an angry woman.
So her husband was unfaithful. Iâ€™m sure she was not an easy woman to live with. Therefore her husband put her out of his mind in order to find happiness in an extramarital affair. He put her away, in other words. So be it.
She just needs to let that man go, because a woman that contentious could never forgive. There is nothing wrong with divorce.
It hath been said, whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement:
St. Matthew 5:31
Tinaâ€™s husband, therefore, needs to be the one to apply for that divorce, yet many of the women in the community tend to see Tina as the victim, when she has impressed me long ago as the hell raiser.
****MATTHEW 5:23**** YOU HAVE HEARD THAT IT WAS SAID, `DO NOT COMMIT ADULTERY.' BUT I TELL YOU THAT ANYONE WHO LOOKS AT A WOMAN LUSTFULLY HAS ALREADY COMMITTED ADULTERY WITH HER IN HIS HEART. **** DIVORCE: ANYONE WHO DIVORCES HIS WIFE MUST GIVE HER A CERTIFICATE OF DIVORCE. BUT I TELL YOU THAT ANYONE WHO DIVORCES HIS WIFE, EXCEPT FOR MARITAL UN FAITHFULNESS CAUSES CAUSES HER TO BECOME AN ADULTERESS, AND ANYONE WHO MARRIES THE DIVORCED WOMAN COMMITS ADULTERY.****
Almost everyone above had some good points today. I also didn't see true Christian attributes while viewing these sisters at times. But Tina! You mad at the devil? He's your husband girl. Yes, the Bible leaves it up to the injured spouse as far as divorce is concerned but the circumstances sourounding your husband indicate he is a serial cheater and will find a way to do it again. Leave him, repent of your sins and become a new woman in Christ and start over.
She does not comment adultery if she catches him in the act. She has every right to divorce him. Someone said that he did not make a mistake, he made a conscious decision. If she stays with him, she is excepting what he has done, which will trickle down to his children hen they are adults. Reality shows tear families apart, they are no exception.
THESE BIBLE THUMPERS...ALWAYS THE WORST
LOOK AT THESE HYPOCRITES....NO SHAME AT ALL...
TRYING TO SCHOOL US ON GOD ..MAKING MILLIONS IN THE NAME OF GOD...
YET ABSOLUTELY INCAPABLE OF FOLLOWING THE FIRST TENET OF THEIR SO-CALLED RELIGION....
WHAT A DISGRACE.
FOR 2 FULL YEARS HOMEBOY WAS HAVING S*E*X*U*A*L I*N*T*E*R*C*O*U*R*S*E WITH SOMEONE WHO WAS NOT HIS WIFE..
THAT'S 730 DAYS! !!!!!
IT TOOK YOU 730 DAYS TO FINALLY COME CLEAN....YOU HYPOCRITE OF CHRISTIAN????
YOU WERE GOING TO CHURCH EVERY SUNDAY...PERPETRATING...PRAISING HIM FOR MONEY ALL THE WHILE S, C, R, E, W, I, N, G ANOTHER WOMAN
SHAME ON YOU. YOU ARE THE DEFINITION OF EVIL.
AND YOU TINA...WAKE UP.
THIS WASNT A ONE NIGHT STAND...
THIS WASNT THE RESULT OF AN UNFORTUNATE DRUNKEN NIGHT...
THIS WAS A WILLFULL ACT.
AN ACT HE WANTED TO CARRY OUT AS LONG AS HE POSSIBLY COULD.
IT'S THE ONLY SENSIBLE, LOGICAL EXPLANATION FOR HIM BETRAYING YOU FOR A FULL 730 DAYS.
HE'S SORRY BECAUSE HE GOT CAUGHT. NOT BECAUSE HE HURT YOU.
AND TO ADD INSULT TO INJURY THAT DEVIL WAS HAVING S, E, X WITH A FRIEND OF YOURS.
A F, K, N FRIEND!!!!!!
I CANT THINK OF A MORE GINARMOUS BETRAYAL THAN THIS.
NOT ONLY HE DOES NOT LOVE YOU....
BUT HE HAS ABSOLUTELY ZERO RESPECT FOR YOU. ZERO, NONE, NADA.
GO AWAY ON A RETREAT..AND PONDER THAT GIRLFRIEND.
YOU DONT NEED TO FAST...
JUST OPEN YOUR EYES AND THINK WITHOUT ALL THE EMOTIONS.
YOULL SEE THAT YOUR MARRIAGE IS PRETTY MUCH A SHAM...AND WAS PROBABLY SINCE THE BEGINING.
AND IF I WAS YOU I WOULD SEPARATE MY MONEY ASAP FROM HIS...
I'M SURE HE WON'T MIND SINCE HE LOVES YOU FOR YOU...
She must have made herself irresistable.
She may have had her eye on Teddy, for so long.
Jealousy brings out the worst in people.
First things people attack is your job, finances, relationships and health.
2 years..... 2 wks ok...2 mths maybe..but 2 years. that man wasnt having an affair he was living a double life and i bet the chic he was doing it with was smiling all up in her face. Time to take off that holy than thy robe grab your sneakers, a jar of vaseline, throw that weave bag in a ponytail and gets to whippin some ass
Sad what women put themselves through this just to have someones last name. She is stupid to stay and pray. Reasons... 2yrs??? family friend??? And he waited to admit it??? His azz would have to go. No questions asked! Im Sure there are more women he was dealing with. He got caught because he got bold and pissed in his own back yard.
Babies don't equate to a happy home and while she was having all those babies tryna impress people by standing on chairs and chanting over and over I can do this, puleeze, that man was so tired of her and it showed on the show. She left that door wide open when she made that group her primary focus with all those babies at home. And to keep having babies is a good way to lose your husband to another woman. He didn't want to be bothered with all that fakery she called a happy home. SMH...the things some women will do to hold on to a pair of pants. I basically branded her stupid and could not watch the show.
She is foolish!! That man was tired of her dropping a baby a minute. And that's a good way to lose a man anyway, having baby after baby after baby thinking it's all good. At a point, that man will go to the arms of another woman for comfort. She was hardheaded and was running around standing on chairs, and all types of foolishness with a baby. So this is no surprise. It appears he was not as into her as she was into him.
Giiirl, if i fast and pray with you, I'm fasting and praying that God gives you the strength to leave him, and for you to recognize your worth.
Many women blame themselves, the devil, any and everybody but the husband for infidelity. Don't overlook his actions against you AND his 4/5 kids. Plus, your kids are watching your next move to see how they should allow someone to treat them when they get older in relationships. I'm only speaking from experience when my parents finally divorced. Fasting, praying...been there and done all that. God is faithful, but they had to divorce!
What some people fail to realize is that God gives us freedom to sin and to live holy. He said in His Word that He puts life and death before us, blessing and cursing, then He says, 'choose life so that you and your children may live.'
God will not go against a person's free will. So, now that your husband chose what he chose, I'm hoping that you, 'choose life' for you and your kids.
So let me get this straight ..we suppose to not eat cause Teddy is cheatin on her..umm,NOT!!anyway don't believe everything you hear it's all lies ,probably need some ratings for T.V show..there in on it together ,just like porsha and kordell all lies..don't believe the hype!
Your husband has a two year affair with a family member and your solution is starve you for 30 days, try this instead, put that A$$ out grab a burger and get on with your life. Watch how the anger disappear...
OH hell no!! The devil has nothing to do with this sh yt and neither does God. People always want to find excuses as to why they do the dumb sh yt they do. If she want to work it out with that philandering moron then more power to her. It is no ones fault but his and his alone and hers for accepting it. She has every right to be angry and upset. Then to turn around as if she has the problem to soothe her own fears and insecurities is not cool either. Heal yourself and then decide if you want the relationship. If he can't keep his di ck in his pants then he isn't worth it.
LOL Blackryder I like that. She is punishing herself for this adulter. Pray, meditate, take a vaca and find the simple things in life. Get closer to nature cause that is always so much more spiritual and calming.
I'm a huge Fan of Mary, Mary. Sorry Tina but, if I remember correctly ya'll had a reality show and it was you and your husband that were going thru all of the problems on that show, you not being home enough etc., etc. Real Talk, a man is going to be a man if he is hungry and you don't feed him you think he is just going to stay home and go hungry. With all that booty you have, you aint trying to give him none....SMH !!!!
She ia absolutely right! What alot of you are missing is GOD RESTORES!! God hates divorce so if one cheats you have every right to divorce but if they both want to make it work God be the glory! Yes he was wrong but again i say GOD RESTORES!!
cher1e...yours is the most sound and maturely stated post on this entire site. I totally concur. I am a Mary Mary fan. We all have personal issues/quirks about our personalities that can be improved. So I'm not even trippin on Tina having a "bad attitude" as some wanna point out and make the focus/valid excuse for her husband cheating. That's bs...who doesn't have a bad attitude these days in these stressful .a.z.z. times we living in?! Puleeze people!! Fact is...Teddy just aint .s.h.y.t.! I can read a man like a book and I saw that he wasn't .s.h.y.t. when he was crying and complaining to Tina about her working so much when they were in that carriage ride with the horse. I was like...Really dude?! This is what she was doing when you met her...before you married her...after you married her! But now you wanna cry and act brand new?! She putting food on yall table, keeping the roof over yall head...and you crying?! Red flag...Made my wheels immediately turn. I said...Yeah, this .n.i.g.g.a. a dog! He just looking for an excuse to validate some .b.u.l.l.s.h.y.t. he finna try to pull. And lo and behold.......BAM!!! Sadly, I think the only person really surprised is Tina. Even sadder, this friend most likely aint the only person he has banged. Saddest of all, if Tina stays...she is committing herself to a lifetime of grief, misery, emotional abuse, and disrespect. Closing memo: the person your significant other cheats with is often someone that you know of and/or have routine interactions with...friend, coworker, associate. neighbor...its rarely a complete stranger.
Wow....go figure, NOBODY has the perfect life. A husband cheating happens all the time NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE.........but it's gotta be quite deflating to happen on the world stage. Two years of straight untrustworthyness by Tina's husband is a wee bit much. The other woman was more then a jump off.....she was a side piece for two years.......how does a woman deal with such an offense? Personally, I would go into prayer but there would have to be a time of separation. Cause in all honesty, if Tina had not discovered her husband's indiscretion...how much longer would the affair carried on?
I'm sorry Ms. Tina , but I watch u on the show , and I font think its all his fault , ur so mean ,and bossy to everyone , u try to control everything , even ur sister , all u do is have babies , he don't even have time to spend wit u , cause u always gone ,or u pregnant ,I kno he get tired of that , no qualitytime , so he found it somewhere else , its not always about the money honey
Saul, known by many as Paul, was a man who prosecuted and persecuted many of Gods people during the infancy of Christianity, but God used this man who had an evil mind and heart to become one of His greatest prophets and author of many bible books through Gods word. God uses goof and bad people in his mission to teach his people so be mad at the woman but don't be mad at the message that God has sent using her voice. now on the other side of that, I watch the reality show and now I see why she didn't really want to go on tour be gone for longer than two weeks at a time. Her husband is a cheater and she needs to be close to him so that she can keep him from strange away again. Maybe that's also why she can't have no kids. I'm not saying it's wrong to have as many kids as you want, but if your husband is a cheater that doesn't make sense to keep bringing babies into a broken relationship because its not going to keep the man. Still love the message in the music, but now Tina's behavior is explained.
So If she never would have caught him what?????.
Would he have confessed? I doubt it when people stop giving the devil credit he won't be able to enter our lives...the devil? Maybe it was God's way of exposing your wicked husband..You know he been cheating she just didn't want to see it..
SMH, here she go with this "the Devil did this" bullcrap. Your husband decided to stick his meat in some other chick, the Devil didn't make him do anything. Come to think about it, that's a good excuse to say, "baby, the Devil made me do it" when caught in some tush-tush.
Tina is pretty. Actually both women are. What people fail to understand is that some people have different morals and values when it comes to marriage and relationships. Truth is....God is pleased with her commitment to her hsuband because its for better or for worst. Those are the vows. Her husband will answer to God for his adultry so in the meantime.....Tina do what works best for you. True fans would respect her decision and wish them well. Good luck.
Don't give up on your marriage. Take one day at a time. When you make it through this you will be stronger as a couple. The enemy has already stolen enough from all of us, take back everything he stole and be determined to hold onto what belongs to you. Be blessed.
Tina is not that innocent. She did admit to attempting to stab her husband several times because she wanted to kill him. Airing their marriage issues for the whole world to read is wrong. If her husband did screw her friend it was done out of revenge by one or both of them. I don't feel sorry for her at all. Tina knew he was a "fake ass pimp wannabe" from day one, but chose to marry him.
It's craZy how others can come out and tell somebody else what they should do about their relationship when either they going through the same thing, don't have a life of their own, or full of bull! If people judged, talked, or nail jesus to the cross they would do the the same to you. People make mistakes, it's those mistakes they learn from to build, strengthen, and gain what u once had. You sing songs of trust , believing, and not giving up.
God has not brought you this far.................
