Mary Mary is a reality TV show broadcast on the Women's Entertainment (We) cable network. The show follows the lives of Grammy award winning Gospel group, Mary Mary. Erica and Tina Campbell are sisters who are balancing their busy personal lives, along with the demands of maintaining successful recording careers.
Mary Mary's music has been credited with broadening mainstream gospel with the introduction of soul, funk, hip hop and jazz.
As wives and mothers, they also face the day to day challenges of family relationships. Their decision to include family in their careers has posed unique situations for them to deal with. For example, Mitch Solarek, their manager, is doubtful that the women's sister and stylist, Goo, will become capable enough to style at a level to meet the group's expectations. This has created noticeable friction between the family members. In fact, Mary Mary's professional team is in constant conflict with family members, which is a continual focal point of the show.
Undaunted, manager Mitch continues to make every effort to propel Mary Mary and Erica and Tina Campbell into household names. However, Mitch's professional goals are often in conflict with Tina and Erica's wishes to be as attentive mothers and wives as they possibly can.
The women were raised in the tough Inglewood, California area. Their family had nine siblings and all were raised to have an exemplary work ethic. They were taught to put family before everything. As a result, since Mary Mary has become successful entertainers, their family very much affects how their business is run. Of course, this has created a fertile ground for arguments. Because Erica and Tina still remain very career focused, the disagreements can be quite explosive.
Erica is expecting another child, in addition to the other two small children she has with husband, Warryn. Tina has four children with husband, Teddy. Despite Mary Mary's seemingly glamorous life on the road, their situation at home is quite different. Warryn is Mary Mary's producer, while Teddy, Tina's husband, is the drummer on The Tonight Show. Because their husbands also maintain music business careers, they understand the many challenges to be faced.
Regardless of what situations transpire, family seems to trump everything. However, the Mary Mary TV show makes it evident that music is the true passion of these women that is what fuels their desire to reach higher heights.
