Everyone froze during the July 30 episode of ‘Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition’, when Vado physically assaulted his wife, Tahiry Jose.
Vado was driven to his breaking point during the July 30 episode of Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition. He became so mad at something said by his wife, causing him to leap up from his seat while the group was rehashing an exercise they had participated in earlier in the evening, and physically attacked and choked her.
There’s absolutely no excuse for violence, but we should note that Vado’s act of aggression came after a long and painful exercise, during which the housemates were told to shock each other when they did any one of three things given to them on a private list.
For example, if one partner (Tahiry) yelled and yelling was on the other partner’s (Vado) list, that person (Tahiry) could get zapped by the other (Vado).
Things got sour as Tahiry ended up screaming at Vado for zapping her “out of spite”, before she went on to embarrass him on camera by throwing two apples at him. She walked off and joked that he should make applesauce with them, but you could tell that he was internally becoming angrier by the second.
Later, while the group was rehashing the exercise with Dr. Ish, Tahiry tried defending her actions by blaming Vado for her outburst. She said he made her look “extra aggressive”, which then sent him over the edge. He shot a confusing look at her way before he jumped out of his seat and grabbed her neck.
Everyone gasped and Dr. Ish ran over to break up the fight while yelling, “No, no, no, no, no, no!” Fortunately, Vado was pulled off from Tahiry before anything terrible happened, but it was still frightening and Tahiry looked petrified. Vado was escorted out of the room, and he could be heard saying something about how upset he was over the apple throwing.
