(L to R) Dr. Jaqueline Walters, Quad Lunceford-Webb, Toya Bush-Harris, Mariah Huq, Kari Wells and Dr. Simone Whitmore
As I type this I’m yawning because basically and let’s just put it out there, I’m sicka reality shows! They all have the same plot, same kinda cast and we all know when there is a bunch of women, there is bound to be some bickering and fights! I guess Bravo is trying to ‘class it up’ with this new reality show called, ‘Married To Medicine’. I was at Nene Leakes’ Christmas party and met Dr. Simone Whitmore, her practice is up here by where I live and I need to call her and make an appointment soon lol. I’m sorry but I won’t be tuning in, the title along turns me off and sounds BORING as heck! I might be wrong though, time will tell. Here is the cast with the ladies bios if you are interested. I’m going to lay back down, I’m still recovering from New York Fashion Week! The show will air March 24th at 9pm on Bravo. xoxo
Update: There is already a petition going around from some medical students asking Bravo to remove the show like they did with Shawty Lo’s All My Babies Mamas. They say it’s hard enough for the 1% of female doctors to try to work and this will only set them back, oh my!I just watched the trailer and just like I figured its a bunch of ratchetness, lawd why would these ladies jeopardize their careers for fame like this? Couldn’t be me!
