Married to Medicine Recap: When in Shady Grove Throw Shade [Reunion Part 1]

Posted on Jul 14 2014 - 11:53am by Harmony McClintock

M2M Reunion

As  Andy begins his clever introduction, we immediately notice the secret garden to which the Md’s and Mrs. Md’s are all seated.  Andy lovingly calls it a Shady Grove. As we jump into catching babies, casting and catwalks, we get a slight reminder of the seasons clips of the business driven women. Within the first five minutes a jab is thrown at Mariah about her Executive Producer title. Lisa Nicole, Toya and of course Quad, chime in to tell Mariah that she throws her EP title in everyone’s face. Lisa Nicole tells Mariah she sends her Twitter Army to attack her. Mariah snaps back that she’s not the Twitter police and can’t control what people say on Twitter. Andy reacts to Mariah’s assertion about being the Twitter police with a bit of bemusement, and wants to know more about the retweets before deciding if she’s on the force. Tacky Toya has to threw her two cents in and turns things up a notch, accusing Mariah of firing her last season. 

M2M

Mariah stands her ground and lets it roll off her back. She is cool as a cucumber. Quad makes a point to say it’s a vanity title, and that Mariah has no power to hire or fire anyone. This viewer felt like her title may have be rubbed in their face, but noticed that she never mentioned it one time throughout the season.

We jump into the dentist chair for an uncomfortable examination of Dr. Heavenly. With a coffee cup full of Vodka and a smile, Dr. Heavenly says, My truth is my truth. The doctors address when Dr. Heavenly gets defensive when complaining, she was called a b*tch, a whore, and not a real doctor.  Simone and Jackie say that Heavenly came in hard on the doctors. Andy asks Quad why did Heavenly come in so hard from jump. Quad naturally blames Mariah for putting a bug in her ear about Jackie and Simone. Heavenly agrees with Quad and misquotes Mariah, to which Mariah quickly clears up. She corrects Heavenly and says, If you come for Simone, she will come back for you, and Jackie is not the type to do that. Then two seconds later, Heavenly says flat out that Toya is not the brightest one in the group, right to her face. Ouch! Toya is not gonna let Heavenly (or anyone else) get away with telling her she is not smart! Both Simone and Heavenly have made a point this year to mention that Toya isn’t very bright. Andy asks Dr. H, Why did you say that she wasn’t the brightest in the group? Dr. H snaps Because she’s not! Andy just had to laugh when Heavenly clarified the statements she made about Toya’s intellect. And so did I.

M2M Reunion

A mini debate ensues between Simone, Jackie and Heavenly concerning Heavenly not being a real doctor comment. Heavenly said that statement was ignorant, to which Jackie immediately responds, there was a lot of ignorance at the table. To clarify, Jackie acknowledges a dentist is a doctor, it may not be the type of doctor that could be useful on a plane but yes, a dentist is a dr. Dr. H tells Jackie, You know a lot about the vagina, but you don’t know a whole lot about anything else. The ladies forced Andy into a major decision which doctor was smartest — and which doctor he’d want to help him if he was injured on a plane. At the end of the day, Andy decided that despite not having a vagina, he’d prefer an OBGYN to a dentist if things got troubling mid-air. Well he has a point there!

We move back onto the major friend fallout of the season….Quad and Mariah. As we try to get past the superficial reasons these two women went from best friends to fast enemies, Quad feels that Mariah was bad mouthing her and was condescending. Quad tells Mariah, You told her [Toya] I dated a drug dealer? Is that true? Mariah turns to Toya and says She definitely shouldn’t believe you. When Andy tried to get to the bottom of the Quad/Mariah feud, he found that perhaps he was as confused as ever. After some banter we know they really loved each other. Mariah apologizes gracefully to Quad. Seems like Mariah at one point in this conversation falls on her sword to make it better, and the audience is left with no conclusion to repair the friendship.

M2M

Clips of  Heavenly telling her 7-year old daughter, Alura to be submissive to her husband are shown. Lisa Nicole jumps in to tell Heavenly it would be better to teach her daughter how to act like a lady, self growth, rather than submission to a man. Dr. H tries to defend, her truth, by saying her daughter is being taught to be a leader, but that her daughter should be a wife and a mother first, and should submit to her husband. Toya is not going to let Heavenly get a pass on this one. Toya digs at Heavenly for telling her she is not smart. When in a shady grove, why not get shady? Submission to me means supportHeavenly defends her use of the word, which left many of the ladies, including Dr. S, up in arms! Heavenly stands her ground and doesn’t feel the need to guilt herself for submitting to her husband. To each their own. Mariah validates Heavenly’s belief in submission, but with a unique take, arguing Submission is different to every household.

M2M

Now we jump to the nastiness between Simone and Toya. It all started with a dance grinding on Toya’s husband by Simone, to which Simone admits she did go too far. Toya says she feels completely disrespected Simone. Toya tries explaining to Dr. Jackie why she felt disrespected by Simone gyrating on her husband. The action itself is not what bothered her but her refusal to stop after Toya asked her to. You know what they say: a gyration is only have the battle. Toya and Dr. S go back and forth until Simone tries to explain her side of the incident but is cut off by Toya, which escalates matters. Dr. S yells at Toya, If I really offended you why not call me up and say it?” Dr. S says they weren’t real friends and that’s ok with her. It turns into a screaming match with Andy in the middle with constant ringing in his ears. Toya feels like Simone launched a campaign of disrespect towards her. Simone said a real friend would have picked up the phone. Toya argues that she is not close enough friends with Simone to drop her a call! But does she have her number memorized?

M2M

M2M

Now this is were the reunion gets weird. Andy announces time for a  break and you can sense this catfight is not done. Simone tells Jackie backstage that Toya’s excuse for not calling her was due to them not talking everyday and that she could still call her or drive by her house. Toya is eavesdropping outside of Simone’s dressing room and jumps in continuing the fight. Sh*t gets real when Toya tells Simone she’s not a good mother for arguing in front of her son. Snap, Crackle, Pop! Simone responds, are you being a good mother with your raggedy broke ass? Yes, you read that right, raggedy broke ass!  Toya turns right around and Dr. S continues to blasts her repeatedly on her being broke. Toya charges at Simone as both women are held back from going to blows. Didn’t Toya do this last year to Mariah at Carrie’s party? As Dr. Simone’s son stands watching  on, Toya gets pulled back by Quad, screaming, “You’re a bitch for going there!” This battle is clearly not over, and we will have to see the conclusion of Dr. Slash,  Raggedy Broke Ass, Heavenly Hell, Posh Hater, Puppy Couture, and finally Queen Bee on next weeks airing of part two of the “Married to Medicine” reunion.

  • Excellent recap Harmony!!! You captured the reunion perfectly!

  • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

    I agree, your recap is fabulous. Mainly because I didn’t watch this gaggle of cats fighting.
    I soh appreciate your recap! And I’m still very happy and glad I didn’t watch this fiasco!

    • Happy Monday TTaA! Hope you had a nice weekend. The reunion was pretty juicy. I enjoyed it.

    • SAMRA1116

      Touché —- but we can come her to talk crap… lol
      The fun and lifestyle of the show, is lost on petty BS

  • RonnieIsBack

    Excellent recap! these heifas were going for blood last night lol..Dr. Heavenly is hilarious and in her Bravo Blog she slays boring Lisa Nicole and said she “needs to know where her husband is..Keisha was in the hall way” Dayum! Catch that dirt…
    But Heavenly was definitely drinking lol
    Simone was howling like a bat outta hell, my ears were bleeding also.
    I loved it how Dr. Jackie made Andy admit in case of an emergency he would want a OBGYN and not a dentist lol
    TAcky Toya should have kept her mouth shut, and during the break, she had changed her clothes to giver herself some breaking room from her girdle I guess and should not have gone to their room to mess with Simone..she know Simone will get down and dirty too MD be dayumed..it seems like half of the (Quad, Toya, etc.) are living frmo check to check or trying to keep up with Jackie, Mariah, Lisa NiBoring and Heavenly…
    I just cannot wait until they get into that chauwawa (sp?) LisaNiBoring on Thursday…

    • Exactly Ronnie. Toya started it with Simone and was actually trying to fight her just like she did with Mariah last season. Tacky Toya started some mess her stupid ass could not finish and Simone dragged her ass verbally. So Toya is really broke and all of ATL know it. Bwahahaha!!!! Heavenly is messy as hell but so GOOD for reality TV. Her blog was shadalicious! I loved it.

      • SAMRA1116

        I like heavenly —she can laugh at herself—but she wants Big Daddy to think he is in control. lol
        We always in control, even when they dint know it. lol

        • So true! Her and her big daddy! LOL! 🙂

          • SAMRA1116

            My Dr. um I got my own “Big Sexy” that my man for my husband

      • RonnieIsBack

        oooh wasn’t it, I was like Heavelny dayummmmmmmm yassssss!

    • SAMRA1116

      Thank you —–I didn’t want but QUADis the master puppet maker—she is jealous of Mariah and I hope Mariah sincerely apologize to that nasty big UGLY mouth. I never liked Quad—-they ALL do what Mariah persona —-it was all those same women, that turned on Mariah, for standing by a bitch, no one wanted in the room. Catch that shade quad—-Quad showed her true colors —-
      I can tolerate all of them but dr. Jackie —-she fake —-that’s my take —-I don’t like her attitude and superiority elitist stand. Now Simone and Toya —-educated dummies Toya is a broke ass wanna be. I would still be looking for a way to get my 50K back— that’s a huge amount for everyday ppl. Toya needs to get a job, stop bragging and Eugene is sick of your stupid BS. Heavenly the shrinking holy drunk. Gotta love her

      • RonnieIsBack

        Amen!

        • SAMRA1116

          Hey Ronnie — they are a embarrassment to their profession.
          Now that’s just how I see thingees
          But I could still lunch and have a blast with all those two faced women, except DR. JACKIE—she’s sly and superior —but she showed her hood attitude anyway. We all could laugh at the stupid shit we did or said, but dr. Jackie always has that look. IMO

  • italiano bambino

    I don’t like dr simone she reminds me pf the moose with raising her voice

  • Lorn

    Ugh…where do I begin? This travesty of a reunion really was hard to watch with all the yelling and blatant ghetto-ness. I really don’t like any of these women but find their delusions of themselves entertaining.

    Mariah- you’re a liar in regards to your controlling attitude of the other women. You have no power over any damn thing no matter how many women you rallied to be on this ratchet TV show. Have a seat and take your busted, horse face, mentally deranged momma with you!

    Quad- Are you in-love with Mariah? Because you’re acting like she makes your toes curl and heart beat like an R-kelly love song. Please take a moment and turn down the theatrics. Its unbecoming and sooooo fake.

    Heavenly- AKA the new Phaedra Parks. Whats in that cup? I guarantee you its alcohol and tears because deep down we all know you are NOT keeping a tight household no matter how many times you ‘submit’ to daddy. I feel sorry for your child to know she has a mother like you. Instead of building up her esteem to value herself instead of idolizing others who will only disappoint her- you’re emotionally abusing and brainwashing her to believe in fairytales.

    Simone- Girlfriend must be struggling considering her voice is always on falsetto. I’m going to need you turn it down to about a 5. Your message is always inappropriate and aggressive. You really need to asses yourself and recognize that not every confrontation warrants an explosive reaction.

    Jackie- Say something. I’m sick of looking at you like a dear caught in headlights.

    Lisa- I really have nothing to say as I find you forgettable. You had some decent things to say at the reunion but you’re pretty boring. Also, I don’t find you to be a fashion forward designer, your styles are ripped off of other designers from about two years back.

    Toya- They don’t call you tacky Toya for a reason. Get a job and start making your own money, this marriage might not last forever and that rented house will soon provide you with an eviction notice. Keep spending that money you never worked for– to stuff yourself into expensive clothes that aren’t flattering and make you look like you’re auditioning for RuPauls drag race. You also need to stop correcting others on their abomination of the English language when you don’t have a clear grasp of it yourself. Its really hard to believe you are an educator; all the more reason to revamp the educational system.

    So catch [snap] that [snap] dirt [snap].

    • Zoe D.

      Hahahaha…I love your post!

    • SAMRA1116

      Snap snap. Touché

      • Lorn

        Hi Samra! We’ve spoken before. I just don’t post very often due to work.
        Best! 🙂

        • SAMRA1116

          Then u know my brains don’t remember names, good to see u check in, when u have a free minute. Um u do work for a living — and I’m glad to know, that you’re not one of those lazy arse workers, who blog on their bosses time. No tea no shade

          • Lorn

            LOL. I actually didn’t know you don’t remember names but now I know. 🙂 No, I’m definitely not lazy. I have my own business in conjunction to working a full time job, so I have two jobs–my start-up and a full time job.

          • SAMRA1116

            Now you’re my kind of woman —-you are making it happen. Congratulation to you—um u definitely don’t have extra time on her hands. But now I’ll remember you by:::: corporate am —-u will check in just to say something, when ur too darn tired working 20 hrs a day. Side note:::don’t let your employees, suck up free money from you. You are on a mission and nothing is stopping you and you’re earning it all honestly. If more ppl were you you. Awwww
            Now —um back to snarking. lol
            I would like to hear updates on your success—–you are one CENTERED woman. Look out slackers —- u time is up.

          • Lorn

            Thanks; will do!

    • “Quad- Are you in-love with Mariah? Because you’re acting like she makes your toes curl and heart beat like an R-kelly love song. Please take a moment and turn down the theatrics. Its unbecoming and sooooo fake.”<—-yesssss hunty!

      • Lorn

        Kinda makes you wonder which R-kelly song her heart bumps to.

  • RonnieIsBack

    Agreed, whassup Abby!!!

    • Abby_Wabby

      How u doing shuga?

      • Hey Abby! *waving*

        OMG it’s so nice to see you here.

  • RonnieIsBack

    That beaver with his long head needs to go knaw some wood and shaddup…..and take his stretch dresses with him…torturing those poor pups with those tacky clothes..probly itch.

    • Lorn

      LOL. Someone should notify the humane society.

    • Zoe D.

      lol…@beaver!

  • Zoe D.

    The reunion was okay…more of the usual …”let’s blame Mariah”…which of course I expected. One thing I discovered was that…Quad has no REAL reason to be so upset with Mariah…nothing! Yes, they fought…(come on…who hasn’t fought with a friend in a restaurant/bar before?)…lol Mariah, said Quad dated a drug dealer…SO!?! It was her cousin…lol But the way Quad tells it…you would think Mariah, slaughtered her entire family, burned her house down…and slept with her man! The tears…the hatred in her voice…the drama…the gang bang! Chit, for that? Really? Now, I know Quad used Mariah, and when she was done with her…she created this whole brew-ha-ha to get rid of her. Quad, has had a taste of fame…and now she thinks she’s the Chit. You can’t tell her nothing…she’s a celebrity now! Yeah, okay…bye girl! The fight between Toya and Dr.Simone was entertaining. I love that Dr. Simone called Toya a “raggedy broke ass!” Wow…it’s like she read my mind or something…I loved it! Dr. Heavenly reminds me of that girl in high school that everyone hated. You know…the know it all/snitch/teachers pet kind. I’m trying to like her…but I can’t. lol

    If there is going to be a season 3…they need to replace Quad, Tacky Toya and Lisa… Me don’t like them. Maybe Quad, can get them a show of their own show since she’s all brand new and a big celebrity now. I’m not too crazy about Dr. Heavenly either…she’s too much of a busy body. But I can tolerate her..if she’s drinking.

    • Abby_Wabby

      ITA – I just cant with the ungrateful tacky 3

    • Hi Zoe! Very well said. I co-sign you’re replacements also.

    • SAMRA1116

      I’m on your team of cleaning house, also take Dr Jackie too–I don’t like her persona at all…. I’ll keep Quad first–u know that bitch want it all—u can be top dog.
      I like heavenly she sliming down by drinking and speed—but I still like her

  • Zoe D.

    It’s like Reco wanted his 5 minutes of fame…so he took it to Twitter…lol I saw that…and it gave me a a few giggles.

  • Bwahahaha!!! Oh SNAP. You said that. This heeeee HILARIOUS. Especially the Forever 21 line. Love it.

  • SAMRA1116

    Come back over here ABBY—I need you —so we can keep ripping these fools.
    lol
