Actress Tichina Arnold finally discusses how she handled her estranged husband's infidelity on the new daytime talk show, The Preachers.

The Survivor's Remorse star revealed for the first time that she shared the sex tape of her husband cheating to her closest friends.  "I sent them texts messages telling them..'This is over. Thank you for your prayers. Um, but it’s no longer… this is it,' " she explained.

The veteran actress who was applauded for "not looking like what she's been through" says she not a scorned woman.

"I've seen decades of just women staying in the wrong situations, being physically abused, mentally abused and spiritually abused. I've been there and it's not happening any more!" she exclaimed.

After exposing her husband's infidelities, Tichina Arnold admitted that she's happy it created a dialogue among other women who were going through the same thing.

"We need to have dialogue. We need to open up and talk about it. I stand by every decision I made."
