Mary Mary debut reality TV show amidst criticisms

The US gospel duo of Erica and Tina Campbell, better known as Mary Mary have debuted their reality TV show WEtv.
The show which premiered earlier this week has since earned a lot of snide remarks from their fans who had been apparently  disappointed because the show didn’t focus on gospel songs.
In reaction, Erica, who doubles as a producer and a member of the duo, confessed ‘There is a great level of dysfunction’. We’re real sisters. We’re black sisters with egos and strong personalities. But what we do know is that our mission and message is much bigger than that.’



Tina, the other member of the band corroborated her sister saying ‘I think people have a misconception of what a Christian is. I don’t know, do some think we buy Christian soap, or go to like Christian restaurants. Everybody thinks we’re so spiritual, but that’s not the case. We’re gospel artists, but we make mistakes. We’re normal people who praise God and everybody will get to see that on the show.’
The hour-long, 10-episode series delves into the personal lives of the Grammy-winning group as they seek to balance their own households as mothers and wives while promoting their music.
The duo rose to fame with their ‘Shackles (Praise You)’ track contained in their first album, Thankful released in 2000.
 After came, Incredible and Mary Mary, both of which made number one on Billboard Top Gospel albums alnd won them three Grammys.  Their upcoming album, ‘Go Get It’ is expected to be released later in the year.
