Good evening y’all!!! Here we are again to do a check-up on our favorite Married to Medicine ladies. Dr. Jackie and Simone meet up at Jackie’s office to talk. They recap Dr. Jarrett’s housewarming party and are puzzled as to why Mariah would shut Quad down when she was just starting to open up about her marriage. Jackie wants to have a slumber party for all the ladies to reconnect-comfy pj’s only, no lingerie. Simone drops the big bomb that she and Cecil FINALLY had sex! Whoo hoo!! Jackie is so happy for her and hopes it will make her less grumpy.
Dr. Contessa is recovering at home from her double mastectomy-or is trying to. Her kids keep coming to check on her and it’s cute but exhausting. She’s in pain but doesn’t want to take medicine. Scott wants her to take her medicine so she can rest comfortably and hopefully she listens.Scott says that doctors make the worst patients and he ain’t lyin.
Mariah makes breakfast for Aydin, who is afraid he may be out of a job. His group is merging with a bigger group so he thinks they could have to relocate to a different state. Mariah is freaking out because it’s all rumors as of this point and they don’t have any concrete information. She is afraid to move out of Atlanta and relocate their kids. Aydin promises her they will be alright and whatever happens they will figure it out together.
Dr. Heavenly meets with Saint Dr. K, her anger management counselor. She tells him about her trip home to Miami and how she had a panic attack when she recalled her father dying in her sister’s room. She remembers crying a little at the funeral but not really mourning him. Her parents didn’t seem to be around much as they worked a lot so she felt on her own at a young age. Saint Dr. K thinks her insecurities stem from the lack of love and attention. She tells him how she has a negative reaction to Mariah and her mouth, and that she reminds her too much of her sister. He tells her she doesn’t have to respond to what people say to her. He wants her to keep doing the work on herself to get her to a point where she doesn’t react at all. We shall see about that but it’s very optimistic to think that.
Quad has moved out and is moving in to her new place. Her mom and aunt are helping her and they ask if Quad has talked to Gregory. She hasn’t really but is still wearing her wedding ring. Her mom says that she and Quad’s father had a difficult marriage and she doesn’t want that for Quad. They are supportive of her moving on.
Toya and Eugene are at home and Toya sees that Quad filed for divorce on her Instagram. Toya’s pissed because she found out via social media. Cecil and Simone see Instagram as well and are surprised and saddened by the news. Eugene tells Toya that Quad is an acquaintance and doesn’t think that she would have told her personally. Simone hopes that Quad will still come to the slumber party. She’s upset that Quad didn’t confide in her as they had been close in the past and is hurt that she didn’t find out personally.
Jackie has rented a hotel suite for the slumber party and is hopeful all the girls can come to a place of peace and support. There’s food, alcohol, games and props-nothing can go wrong, right? Jackie found out about Quad’s divorce by the blogs as well but offered her support to Quad-and Quad responded in kind. Heavenly is going to try to be quiet because she too is offended that she found out about the divorce via the blogs and doesn’t want to fight. Mariah arrives and Heavenly practices her silence. Jackie wants them to exchange pleasantries, which they do but with a bit of snark on the side. Quad arrives but is apprehensive. She’s guarded but greets everyone pleasantly. Heavenly asks how Quad is and Quad says she’s doing alright but doesn’t want to talk about it. She’s super defensive out of the gate so it should be a fun sleepover!
Jackie calms her down and Mariah assures her that it’s a judgement free zone. Yes, she said that with a straight face! They facetime Contessa who was going to try to come but ultimately can’t. Jackie pulls out her first game and it’s an imitation game. One lady picks a name out of a hat and has to imitate the name she picked while the other ladies have to guess-a M2M charades game if you will. Jackie thinks it could be fun and enlightening to see how others see a person.Only Dr. Jackie can pull this off! First is Simone who picks Heavenly. Mariah imitates Contessa and to quote Heavenly-”it was wrong but it was funny”. Heavenly picks Toya and Toya picks Simone. Jackie picks Quad and all the ladies are funny and not offensive.They all get a kick out of it. Next they pick questions that were asked prior and written down. The first question is about friendship and Heavenly wants to know if they should leave Quad alone or let her talk about the divorce. Quad says she doesn’t want to answer any questions but that if they give her space, she will come around and open up to them. Heavenly asks point blank if she’s ok and Quad says she’s dealing. Toya begins to talk but Quad shuts her down because she doesn’t want her to ask questions. Toya is pissed and they start screaming at each other. .
Heavenly feels that Toya needs an exorcist to get those demons out. Toya is most upset because she cares about Quad and wants to be there for her but is being iced out. Jackie feels that the fight is about love and that Toya is fighting because she’s really hurt. Quad and Toya end up crying and hugging! Jackie is magic y’all! Magic. Quad just sobs on Toya and even Mariah is in tears. Quad apologizes to Toya and Toya laughs about it. It ends with all the ladies feeling supported and loved. Another reason to love this show!
Next time: Toya is inappropriate in front of her kid, Jackie tries to lure Contessa out of the house, Mariah hosts a black power-couple party it looks she and Aydin come as Quad and Gregory? Not sure but Quad ends up in tears. Looks to be another great episode!
