Is Tara Wallace really moving on?
It seems like the Love and Hip Hop: New York star is finally removing herself from the Amina Buddafly and Peter Gunz love triangle. She took to Instagram to share a motivational quote with her one million followers shortly after this week’s episode — subtly letting Peter know that she’s done with him.
“The world isn’t filled with ‘haters’ and ‘toxic people.’ It’s filled with people who are hurting and trying, ineffectively, to give themselves relief,” read the quote by motivational blogger Lori Deschene. “So distance yourself if you must, but try to do it with empathy, not judgment.”
Tara has been involved in a very toxic relationship with the Bronx rapper for the past 16 years. The pair started dating in 2000, and they share seven-year-old son Jamison, four-year-old son Kaz, and 11-month-old son Gunner. When the couple joined the cast of LHHNY in 2013, Peter’s affair with Amina was revealed — but it was his spontaneous 2013 wedding with the singer that really made the drama spiral out of control.
Peter continued to go back and forth between Amina and Tara ever since. Both women were pregnant with his child and gave birth within months of each other — Tara gave birth to Gunner last February and Amina gave birth to daughter Bronx last August. But shortly after little Bronx’s birth, Peter went back to Tara and tried to reconcile their relationship — and she didn’t want anything to do with him.
Fans expressed their support for Tara on her post and many of them explained that they know what it’s like to be in her shoes. Others advised her to focus on herself and her children and begged her not to take Peter back.
“You are a beautifully spirited woman,” one user wrote. “I applaud you for pushing through when [people] are constantly judging you. You love hard and there's nothing wrong with that.”
