Happy Friday Everyone! I hope you all are here with me, as I only found out Married to Medicine had changed nights AGAIN when I finally sat down on the couch and noticed the DVR was recording it at 9! Good Lawd Bravo peeps, knock it off! This show is too good to keep messing with it’s viewers-I’m getting PopCulturePISSED lol. We begin with Dr. Jackie seeing a patient. Jackie is now investing in Curtis and not working like crazy. Her patient wants an epidural (good call!!) and Jackie wished they had epidurals for heartbreak. She’s glad she stayed strong and pushed through to be with Curtis.
Simone and Cecil have a date night and go to dinner. Cecil tells Simone that he loves her and she tells him that she’s adjusting to living with him again. They talk about getting their relationship back on track but Simone seems angry. She feels that Cecil doesn’t understand how much she was hurt by his friendship with Tammy, his female best friend. Simone tells us that he went out with Tammy for dinner when Simone really needed him and it still hurts her. Simone gets angrier as the conversation continues then storms out of the restaurant. Cecil is left with a confused look on his face and it may be safe to say we all share that look. That escalated very quickly.
Contessa is at home where she and Scott are doing their daughter’s hair-super cute scene. They call Contessa’s dad on speakerphone and the kids get to talk to him. Contessa tells her dad she’s buying him plane tickets to come see them and Contessa is happy to finally have a good relationship with him.
Mariah surprises her daughter Lauren with a stylist to help her transition into high school. He brought a rolling rack of clothes to help Lauren feel confident going into 9th grade. Lauren tries on a bunch of clothes and has fun with it. Mariah tears up talking about how Lauren changed her life and I think every mom can relate to how Mariah is proud of her daughter-it’s a nice, human side to Mariah.
Toya facetimes with Simone and tells her that she set up a winery trip for all the ladies. Simone asks her why she’s planning anything after the Antigua trip, but Toya wants a second chance to not be so emotional and dramatic. She calls all the ladies to invite them, including Contessa.
Heavenly arrives at an empty church and promptly sits down to pray. Mariah then walks in, so let’s hope they prayer works! Mariah is hesitant to meet up with Heavenly, but Heavenly seems humble and ready to make amends. Mariah appreciates the effort and feels that it’s genuine. Mariah wants to know what the real issue is with Heavenly so that she won’t repeat it. Heavenly says it’s lying and Mariah said she repeated what she heard about Damon, she didn’t lie. Heavenly opens up to Mariah and tells her that she reminds Heavenly of her sister whom she doesn’t have a good relationship with. Mariah wants Heavenly to get to know her and not equate her to her sister. They end up laughing and leaving on good terms. Never thought I’d see the day!
All the ladies meet up at Toya’s house to take a party bus for a day of wine tasting. Mariah says that Aydin isn’t feeling well so if she gets a call to leave, she has to go. Simone says that things are awkward with Cecil at home as they argued the entire ride home from date night. Toya says that they should all say what they want to change about themselves, and Simone jumps in to say that she knows she needs to be more patient and less loud. Quad and Heavenly agree with her. Quad says she’s extremely stubborn and is working on that. Contessa says that she is too factual and tit-for-tat, but Simone feels that she’s not saying anything that she can work on. Simone feels like Contessa talks behind people’s back. In Antigua, Toya had accidentally hit Contessa in the chest and Scott had told the group that Toya elbowed her. Toya says that Scott lied and Contessa says that Toya is asking to get choked out saying something like that. Toya stands up to confront Contessa which is insane because Contessa would wipe the floor with her. I like Toya but sit down sweetheart.
Quad tries to settle Toya down and Contessa says she will not allow Toya to get her to be violent. Jackie is hoping for an exorcism but they have to settle for a beautiful wine tasting instead. Contessa and Toya keep making passive-aggressive comments at each other,so Jackie won’t drink in case she has to stop a choke-out. They have a beautiful lunch outside and Contessa brings up how Toya picks on Eugene for his weight but they have the same BMI. Dang! Quad says that Contessa is wrong to think that Toya purposely hit Contessa and Contessa owns that she may be wrong about that, but isn’t wrong about Toya. They move on to the vineyards where Mariah gets a call from Aydin saying that he’s going to the ER-his headache isn’t better and he’s really sick.
They all enjoy wine outside overlooking a beautiful vineyard. Mariah keeps to herself as she’s worried about Aydin. Simone opens up to Jackie about her hurt feelings regarding Tammy and how she feels Cecil made a Tammy a priority over Simone. Jackie advises Simone to open up to Cecil about how deep that hurt is and to let go of her resentment. Mariah gets another call from Aydin saying that he’s been admitted to the hospital. He has viral meningitis and Contessa says that they will all leave in solidarity with Mariah to go be with Aydin.
Next week is the season finale: There’s a party, Cecil and Simone talk to their therapist, and Aydin is shown in the hospital. I hope y’all got to watch and maybe a person or two will comment! See you there!
