ATLANTA — Season 4 premiere of the hit Bravo TV franchise, “Married to Medicine,” pulsated with the type of drama that has made it one of the most popular reality shows on television. It was filled with enough plots, twists and corkscrews to fill a John Grisham novel.
This delicious social cocktail is now becoming a national phenomenon as well as one of the most valuable assets in the Bravo TV portfolio alongside the station’s other reality show about housewives. The red carpet premiere featured the regular cast members, Quad Webb-Lunceford, Toya Bush-Harris, show co-founder Mariah Huq, Lisa Nicole Cloud, Dr. Simone Whitmore, Dr. Heavenly Kimes, Dr. Jaqueline Waters and Kari Wells. But it also included some other luminaries including “Real Housewives of Atlanta’s” Phaedra Parks, “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” star Rasheeda, reality star Toya Wright, and many others.
There are multiple poignant and powerful storylines that make “Married to Medicine” pop like microwave popcorn, including:
She is back this season of Married to Medicine. “I think it was definitely a little bit different just coming back in after being sick last year and just kind of re-adapting to the ladies,” Mariah told the Daily Dish. “But back to the same old drama.”
Lisa Nicole Cloud wanting to get pregnant again in her mid-40s:
“To a certain extent, I just got the mommy baby bug again, and it was like, I always wanted to have a big family, and I figured if that’s something that’s really important to me, I was just gonna have to stop and be still and make time for that because once those years are gone, you can’t really get them back.”
Dr. Simone Whitmore, the human volcano: As her husband said, Whitmore “can go from 0-1000 in a second” with little to no provocation. You can tell there are building resentments of others that she has. But there may be other factors to what makes her strike like lightning on a clear blue day.
“This season started out a little weird because early in the season, I found out my dad was missing, so that was a little awkward,” she told The Daily Dish. “Normally, I’m excited and gung-ho to film. This season was a little different.”
Toya Bush Harris and her husband Dr. Eugene Harris and the IRS:
“It’s very hard to put out there your personal life, and I hope that they’re behind us, and they’re really respectful of our decisions as opposed to getting the hate, the hater tweets, all the negativity and things of that nature,” she said. “I hope they can see the support that came with this situation from between my husband and I.”
