Married to Medicine Recap: Textual Healing [Episode 6]

 This week’s episode of Married To Medicine is filled with crying, lady parts and puppy couture!  We start off at the scene of “the crime” – Lisa Nicole’s  WEN- Women’s Empowerment Network conference or W(h)EN is the mud-wrestling going to start?  Tears, make-up touch ups, dramatic speeches and a lot of hurt feelings.

M2M

Quad and Mariah have to be the best-dressed brawlers at the conference.  Dr. Heavenly tries to intervene.  Quad in fur stole and elbow length leather gloves delivers a speech on par with Bette Davis or Joan Crawford.  “Don’t do this to me … This is not about the show!  This is my life!”

M2M

The WEN conference has a “Tranquility Room” with make-up artists for participants to use when they need a touch-up.  But this Tranquility room is just seeing a lot of tears and faux-tragedy!  Lots of crying.  Lots of allegations of lying.  Lots of histrionics.

Dr. Simone after seeing all the anger between Quad and Mariah, decides to make up with Toya.  (Side note: this is a good life lesson for all of us.  Follow Dr. S’s lead and reach out to someone you’ve had an issue with.  Put the fur on the elbow-length gloves away and give someone a hug!)

M2M

Enough with the “Trauma in the Tranquility Room,” it’s time for the post-lunch panel at the WEN conference.  Dr. Heavenly wants to know why she was not invited to be a panel speaker. She jumps up there and shuffles all the plates to make herself a seat and starts nodding to anything anyone says.  I guess that’s women’s empowerment for you – if there’s not a seat at the table, make yourself one!

Dr. Jackie’s panel tip: “Looking good (while undergoing breast cancer treatments) made me feel good … health is the best wealth that you can have.”  Lisa Nicole takes the high road and allows panel interloper Dr. Heavenly time to speak.   Dr. H shares the love back to Lisa Nicole and then encourages all participants to Google her!

M2M

At the end of the conference, Lisa Nicole tries to get a group hug with Quad & Mariah.  Too soon, too soon!  Lisa Nicole should just be lucky they are in the same room!

Dr. Jackie and Dr. Simone have a post-WEN conference chat filled with some gyno-speak that I did not need to hear!  Enough with the lady parts chatter! Dr, Jackie pushed to have Dr. Simone “own her actions.”   She advised: “Stay tranquil in the tranquility room” and gave Dr. Simone a prescription for “Shut Your Mouth” – take it 3 times a day.  Give me an unlimited refill on that prescription, Dr. Jackie!  I need it – STAT!

M2M

In return for the “shut yo mouth” prescription, Dr. Simone tells Dr. Jackie she booked her an appointment with an adoption counselor.  I am surprised Dr. J didn’t chuck her appointment pad at Simone’s head!

Back to Lisa Nicole – she put off her tests to see if her cysts were cancerous to make sure the WEN conference went off smoothly.  (Side note:  Readers please – when it comes to your health, do NOT act like the ladies on Married To Medicine.  Get your derriere to a Doctor – STAT!  No conference or other event is worth your health!)  Lisa Nicole and her children pray that the appointment will go well.  She waits until after her children leave to break down in tears and show how scared she is.  Lisa Nicole has a family history of breast cancer.

M2M

Dr. Jackie meets with a patient to discuss temporary and permanent birth control options.  The patient says she has had four children and that’s enough.  Dr. J who wants to make sure her patients are well-informed and understand that permanent sterilization means permanent, says “Who determines what is enough babies?”  Her patient replies: “My bank account!”  Amen, sister!

Turns out that Lisa Nicole’s cysts are fluid-filled with a low probability of being cancerous.  Even though the final cell analysis has not been completed, Lisa Nicole is running around shouting “No cancer!”  Lisa Nicole’s husband says: “If you pray, God answers your prayers.”  I am glad Lisa Nicole’s cysts were benign and I don’t mean to be Madame Buzzkill here, but one test doesn’t clear you for life.  And I am quite sure many people with cancer have prayed to God.  If prayer was all that was needed, we’d have a heck of a lot less cancer patients.  Not to sound like Dr. Jackie – but stay healthy, people and have regular check-ups!

M2M

Dr. Jackie meets with adoption consultant.  Um did I miss the episode where her husband said he now wants kids after saying he didn’t?  Nope, evidently not because Jackie tells Simone to whisper so her husband doesn’t hear!

Jackie begins crying and we see a window into the pain of being a woman who cannot have children who is constantly surrounded by patients who can have children.  Dr. Jackie says that the hardest part will be getting her husband onboard.  This just seems like a recipe to divorce for me.

M2M

Fashion Designer Reco and Quad need to have puppy couture samples done in 30 days to show potential investors.  Cut to a montage of Quad carting rolls of fabric like a hired hand.  I can hear the “Laverne & Shirley” (or “2 Broke Girls” if you’re a young’un) theme song playing as Reco & Quad flit around the fabric warehouse.

Once again we hear another “How was the WEN conference?” rehash. Hello, we saw what happened in the episode.  Do we need to hear all the rehashing with catty commentary and biatchy allegations?  Girl, yawn.

M2M

Reco claims Mariah rents not owns her house.  Quad claims this is another thing Mariah is lying about. Reco tells Quad she needs to invite Mariah to her next charity event – breast cancer awareness fashion show.  Quad looks scared but says she wants to rebuild her friendship with Mariah.  Tune in next week!

    Reco is a messy gator…just like he was on Project Runway…they are trying to set up Mariah…
    I cannot believe how tall Mariah really is..
    Glad Lisa is ok but she is so boring…
    Dr. Heavenly..I can’t..

    • Thank you! That’s why he insisted on Quad inviting Mariah to Quad’s charity function. I saw the clip where he goes off on Mariah and talks about “this goes back 20 years,” what a effing bish!

      I like Dr. Heavenly, she totally cracks me up. I like her a lot.

      • RonnieIsBack

        Yes Reco is hella thirsty.
        I know you like Dr. Heavenly..but didn’t you think that was wrong for her to insert herself on the platform? I think Lisa handled it in a classy way however.

        • I agree with you, it was wrong and unprofessional but it cracked me up. I was like WTF??? She really felt it was her place to be up there. I wonder why Lisa Nicole didn’t invite her on the panel initially. Seems like some shade there on Lisa Nicole’s part.

          • RonnieIsBack

            You never know…just at shady bunch..But if they didn’t know who Dr. Heavenly was before, they know now…or they can google her as she said LOL.

          • LMAO!!! That was soooooo unprofessional!

          • SouthTampaLily

            GOOGLE ME! I was like “do what to you?” 😉

          • Ahahahaha!!!

          • SouthTampaLily

            I’m a Cat Mom – which means the cats didn’t vomit on Sunday- that’s like their version of bringing me breakfast in bed!

          • Primrose

            I see Heavenly as comic relief. I especially like seeing her with her daughter who seems to have Heavenly’s number.

          • SouthTampaLily

            I want more of Dr. H’s daughter – at least 15 min per episode!

          • Primrose

            Me too!!

          • Hi Primrose…..hope you had a great Mother’s Day yesterday.

          • Primrose

            I did. Thnx for that!

          • Same here. The show is so boring, Dr. H brings a smidge of interesting.

          • Primrose

            I agree Doc.

          • SouthTampaLily

            Lisa Nicole said she didn’t know Dr. H when she scheduled the panel – but who knows? I think jumping on the panel was amazing television, but is it smart business for Dr. H’s several dental practices? Who knows? I do applaud Lisa Nicole’s classy way of handling it, but yeah I am still bored with her – they should have had the cancer “storyline” later in the series.

          • Totally agree with all of this.

  • Bonita Gee

    Yes Lisa is boring .. but Reco is a hot mess, he’s ALSO on R&B Divas, that comes on TV1 Wednesday nights.
    I don’t know if he’s a regular on the show. He was on the last episode. Meelah visited his store to find an outfit to wear to a singing event. So he’s on Bravo to with Marrid to Medicine ……… Hmmmmmmmmm ….He must be popular in Atlanta
