Actress Wendy Raquel Robinson met her husband Marco Perkins back in 2001 after hosting an NBA playoff party at her house.
Robinson says she didn’t notice him right away, but during the party she observed him closely. Wendy says,”He not only had an opinion, but a swagger. I felt like we could dine at the White House or hang in the ‘hood.”
In 2003, Wendy and Marco got married on a yacht in the presence of family members and friends.
However, the couple had no idea just how much trials and tribulations they would have to endure during their first year of marriage. After an evening out, the couple returned home to find that an electrical fire had burned down their home. As a result, the fire left the couple homeless with nothing only but clothes on their backs. Sadly, the fire also claimed Wendy’s dog, Ginger. Wendy says, “Looking back now, I wondered sometimes how we’d get through it. But God has blessed us. During that time, I saw what my husband was made of.” Wendy adds, “My mother told us to come home.” I had to wear one of my sister’s clothes and shoes. Wendy reveals,” But going through it strengthened out marriage. Everything was stripped away and all we had was each other….I feel like I’ve been reborn. God has gotten us through a lot. There’s a gratitude journal scrolling through my head right now, and it’s full of so many blessings.”
Speaking Of her new found blessings, Wendy says, ‘God gives you double for your trouble.’ The couple lso added two new dogs to the family.
Aside from continuing her role as ‘Tasha Mack’ on BET’s “The Game,” Wendy spends her off time by running the Amazing Grace Conservatory (a theatre arts school she founded in 1995); being a loving wife; and playing auntie to her nieces and nephews.
