Toya Wright has a big decision to make. In a sneak peek of Friday’s episode of WE tv’s “Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars,” Toya confides in one of her cast mates about her struggling marriage to Memphitz (Mickey) Wright.
In a promo video for Season 5, episode 5, Toya is seen talking with Lisa D'Amato about her and Memphitz’s problems and admits that she’s not sure if she still wants to stay married to him. Toya tells Lisa that Memphitz told her that he wants “to be alone” and doesn’t “want to be married.”
“I just feel like, I love Mickey enough to … you don’t want to spend the rest of your life unhappy,” she says. “And if marriage is not for you, then go ahead, be free.” Toya then starts crying and says that she asked Memphitz if he was ready for marriage before they tied the knot in 2011. Toya, who used to be married to rapper Lil Wayne, admits that she’s not as affectionate as her husband but is doing everything she can to make things work.
While Toya is opening up to Lisa, Memphitz is inside the house talking with the other cast members about his marital problems. “I’m tired,” Memphitz says. When former “Basketball Wives: LA” star Brittish Williams asks him whether he should be married to Toya, Memphitz responds: “I just don’t know how to do this. I can’t be controlled. I don’t know how to be in a situation where I have to acknowledge someone else’s opinion.”
On last week’s episode of “Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars,” things turned ugly between Memphitz and Toya when he started yelling in her face. The show’s counselors Jim and Elizabeth Carroll made it clear to Memphitz that his attitude wouldn’t be tolerated and he tried to apologize to Toya but she was too upset.
Following the episode airing on TV, Memphitz took to Instagram to issue a public apology to his wife. “I want to express my deepest humility & publicly apologize to Toya Wright right now for my actions as seen on Marriage Bootcamp. Even tho it was a year ago, & we were going thru it, I can’t help but hurt for her because she does Not deserve that,” he posted, adding that it was “super hard to watch” their relationship fall apart and he hopes they can help other people save their relationships.
Memphitz’s ex-girlfriend, K. Michelle, also commented on the explosive episode, tweeting her support to Toya. K. Michelle and Toya previously feuded following claims K. Michelle made that Memphitz was allegedly physically abusive towards her. “I could be petty and bitter, but honestly I have no hate in my heart. Your pain is very familiar to me. Cried with you,” she posted, adding in another tweet. “Even if the world questions your character learn from me. I now know GOD TOLD ME WHO I AM, SO NO ELSE CAN. I believe him.”
“Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars” airs Fridays at 9 p.m. EDT on WE tv.
