It was an emotional moment and a walk down memory lane on the 4th episode of The Real Housewives of Abuja as Tutupie revealed that she had been in an abusive relationship.
The Chef further explained that her tantrums are from a good place and are also a defence mechanism she puts up due to her experience. She apologized to the ladies and asked them to get more personal and build intimate bonds.
“I am always on defence,” she explained. “So, sometimes you can just excuse me when I’m too much because I took a lot before I finally retaliated. So, I’m always going to be like this; I guess I have more healing to do,” said Tutupie.
The ladies were receptive and empathetic towards her; one sometimes gets the feeling they see Tutu as a younger sister they want to protect. “To be honest, Tutu speaking about her relationship gives me a little insight as to why she behaves this way,” Arafa commented. “But I don’t think you should allow your past to define your future.”
The ladies go on to have more emotional moments and Arafa mentions she misses her children and would rather not be away from them if she could.
