Tisha Campbell-Martin’s spirits are high just months after filing for divorce — this according to her close friend, actress Erica Ash.
Tisha announced back in February that she and her husband of more than 20 years, Duane Martin, were calling it quits. “After 27 years of being together and two amazing children, it pains me to announce that I’ve filed for divorce,” the 49-year-old wrote in a statement.
She added, “It’s an emotional time and I graciously ask for privacy for me, our children and the rest of our family.”
Since the announcement, the actress has stayed busy working on new projects and is keeping a smile on her face.
“She’s doing so great and I’m really proud of her because I know that’s hard on anybody no matter what your socioeconomic level is or no matter who you are, your level of fame.” Ash told HipHollywood exclusively.
The In Contempt star added, “I’m really really proud of the way she’s handling it.”
Ash even opened up about to being pranked by Campbell last month during an episode of The Real. While on the daytime talk show, Tisha texted Erica and joked that she was in jail.
Immediately, Erica jumped to conclusion that the former Martin star murdered her now estranged husband. “I can’t believe she got me,” she told us. “Whenever anyone says I got him I always think significant other … So I was like ‘she done killed Duane.'”
She continued, “Tisha and I have a really great relationship. She’s always got my back, always been supportive of me … if I hear my girl’s in jail, I gotta get me some bail money.”
