Amina Buddafly rejects the “home wrecker” label and considers Tara Wallace weak for resorting to physical violence.
“People call me a home wrecker. First of all, what is that? A happy home cannot be wrecked. That’s what I think,” Amina told DJs at Hot 97 radio station in New York.
Amina maintains that she wasn’t aware how serious things between her husband Peter Gunz and his babymama Tara were before the two got involved. Though scenes in “Love & Hip Hop: New York,” made it seemed like she was pressuring Peter to leave his family, she said Peter pursued her.
“At the end of the day, this is his mess. I’m just a part of it,” she said. “He came on to me. It’s not like I was pulling him away, trying to have him with me. In the beginning, him and I were friends. I was with somebody else. My ex broke up with me, and Peter was a mutual friend and Peter became the person that I kinda like grew to like him as a person. We were friends for a while before anything started.”
Amina admitted that she’d met Tara before, but Peter never introduced Tara to Amina as his girlfriend. Also, Tara said she’d seen Peter with a number of other women. So, his relationship with Tara just seemed like one of many.
“I didn’t know her. I didn’t know her, know her. I had met her, but I hadn’t met her like, ‘Oh, this is my…’ He didn’t introduce her to me like that,” she explained.
Though Amina didn’t know Tara well before the show, they were reunited when Tara confronted Amina about sleeping with her boyfriend of 13 years. That’s when Amina learned first hand that Tara has a bit of a violent streak.
“I just didn’t know she was that type of a woman. I don’t fight. That’s stupid to me. That’s like a sign of weakness. I don’t come from that,” said Amina who was caught off guard when Tara slapped her. “If I would have known, I would have been ready.”
Amina has already conceded that Peter will likely cheat on her the same way he cheated on Tara, and she doesn’t plan to just suck it up and deal with it.
“I don’t think I can take it. I’m not going to do it. I even tell him all the time, we might not be together that long. He’s trying, and I really believe that he really wants to, but is he capable? We’ll see,” she said.
Amina explains why she loves Peter. Is it his bedroom prowess? Listen.
