Some matters are best left private, like the devastating healing process going on in Tina Campbell’s marriage, currently unfolding on WE tv’s Mary Mary.

“Some things are better handled privately,” Cheryl Hamilton, A Milwaukee-based Christian therapist told EEW Magazine.
“When emotions are too raw, it is not a good time to air dirty laundry. Things get too confusing and convoluted.”
