*Starring in a reality show may result in instant fame, but, as Mary Mary noted Monday night on “The Arsenio Hall” show, the platform provides a way to air out personal issues.
For Tina Campbell, the “Mary Mary” show on WEtv provided the perfect chance for her to speak on why she opted to display her marital problems on the small screen.
“Last year, I became aware that there was infidelity in my marriage and at the last second I decided I’m not gonna be hostage to this because if I am it’s gonna make me miserable, and I made the decision that I’m gonna try to forgive and maybe if someone watches me or hears about me going though it maybe they might make the same decision maybe I might heal,” she said.

“We can’t walk around with sheets on and moomoos” – Yolanda Adams
*Yolanda Adams may be one of many beautiful members of the Gospel music community, but don’t expect her to overdo it in favor of being sexy.
The singer recently shared her thoughts on being sexy and the flack her friend Erica Campbell has received for wearing a form-fitting white dress on the cover of her latest effort, “A Little More Jesus.” In Adams’ eyes, sexy was the last thing on the Mary Mary vocalist’s mind.
‘Christians can be saved and sexual — Mary Mary
*Earlier this week, Erica Campbell, one half of the Mary Mary sister duo, had a chat with Essence.com about her latest wardrobe backlash.
Dawning a beautiful fitted below-the-knee-length dress, the singer posted new photos from her latest shoot to promote her new solo gig. She said she thought her look was sexy and appropriate, but others snapped back on social media saying she’s not representing Christianity well.

A week after the photo was posted and the reaction that followed, the Mary Mary signer is speaking out on the situation. In her view the picture was nothing more than a beautiful image of someone who is proud of the way she looks.

“I’m taking it in stride and I’m keeping it moving,” Campbell shared with Essence.com. “When we took the picture I felt beautiful, I felt confident, I felt sexy and I felt strong.”
“I thought I looked cute,” she added jokingly, “but it obviously offended some people, which was never my intention.”
Campbell’s photo features the vocalist wearing a figure-hugging white dress that shows off her curves. Among the people in Campbell’s corner is her husband, who she first sent the photo to, and her family, who never wavered in their support
