Tina on discovering her husband was having an affair:
Once I became aware [of the affair], I initially wanted to kill my husband…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.
Erica on husband going into the ministry:
I feel like my husband has been called to minister…Now I said, ‘Lord, when I first started dating this guy he worked for Death Row Records, but he was from the church.’ That was a perfect combination for me: a little street, a little church.
A number of people were stunned to learn that a devout Christian such as Tina Campbell would confess to attempting to kill her husband for his adulterous ways and felt she should have not revealed the information at all. The Zulu King, a commenter on this site said: “hεll, Why is Tina Campbell putting her business out there? Never would have known her husband cheated or she ‘how can she just kill man’ crazy. Let me google his name and cheating.”
