It’s already time to check back in with the ladies of Married to Medicine LA! We begin at the dramatic rooftop ever from last week. Shanique Drummond has accused Larry Blankinship of cheating on Asha Blankinship. According to Shanique, she called Asha to let her know that the ex would be at the dollhouse brunch. Asha walks away to call Larry to make him aware of the allegations. Larry is nonplussed. Asha tells Imani she will only come back to the group if she gets an apology from Shanique. Imani Walker asks Shanique to apologize. Shanique backtracks. She says she did not mean to imply that Larry cheated. She apologizes. Mmmmkay.
Imani wants to give everyone a chance to speak. Britten Cole says that she feels Jazmin Johnson is not authentic. Jazmin wants to hear that from Imani Imani owns up to the drug dealer comment. Jazmin is pissed. She tells Imani that her “level” of success is much lower than her husband’s. Imani is a psychiatrist and knows how much a psychiatrist makes. Imani is SHIVERING WITH ANGER (my new favorite phrase). Shanique and Asha get into it again. Shanique and Jazmin leave. Asha blames the remaining ladies for not defending her, which they did. As Imani says, the night is a shit show so it’s time to go.
Re-Hash Is Not Just For Breakfast
Asha sets up champagne and jacuzzi for herself and Larry. They discuss the sit down. A producer asks Asha if Larry discusses his ex with her and she says no. Isn’t that kind of weird? I mean, I know about my husband’s exes but whatever. Shanique and Robert Drummond are in their bed rehashing the party as well. Robert is upset that Shanique is a part of this issue and says she should apologize. Asha does not know if they can be friends.
The next evening, Imani tells Phil about the conflict at the rooftop event. Phil asks if Imani apologized for the drug dealer comment. She says she left it behind her. What is that supposed to mean? Imani doesn’t believe that Jazmin’s husband is a “just” a psychiatrist. To be honest, Imani seems way too invested in this.
A Mother’s Love
Back in the city, Noelle Reid’s daughter Gaby is at home on a school day. Gabby e is having a hard time adjusting to her new school. The new school is not diverse. Gabby does not feel she fits in. Noelle struggles with Gabby hurting. The new school is much better academically but lacks diversity. Ugh! My heart breaks for her right now. Our little confident Gabby from last week is sad and full of anxiety. I want to hug them both right now.
Later, Noelle and her husband Erin Vines discuss what happened with Gabby. They have been married two and a half years. He seems like a great guy. Erin things Gabby should stick it out at the new school. Noelle struggles with seeing Gabby upset. She is relieved to have Erin to let her guard down with. I have tears with this scene. The hardest thing in the world is watching your child hurt and not be able to take it away. They are a loving family and I have high hopes that Gabby will be just fine.
The Struggle Is Real
Across town, Jazmin and Shanique meet for drinks. Ugh! Right away, I want to fast forward. Jazmin says she ate one piece of bacon and is up a whole pound! Jazmin is stressed. She says being a stay at home mom is hard. She has a nanny! Shanique is stressed. She says being a working mom is hard. And, she doesn’t have a nanny. This scene is so vapid that I am feeling stressed!
Shanique and Britten go househunting fifty miles outside of LA. Britten is frustrated with the three month ultimatum Mack Major has given her. Mack says if she can’t find a job, and a house very soon, she needs to return to her family in Orlando. Is Britten filming Married To Medicine LA Mack’s real issue? Shanique regales us with her real estate knowledge. The house they have come all this way to see is nice but dated. This is an issue they could have known about from an Internet photo. Someone wanted this house on the show. Shanique says the decor says a lot about the neighbors and the neighborhood. Britten jokes it seems to be a “final resting place.” The search for the Cole family home continues.
Britten Cole goes on a job interview at a plastic surgery office. The team is all female which Britten loves. As a Vet, Britten has seen a lot medically. She is now quick on her feet and can stay cool under pressure. I know people have mixed feelings about Britten, but I am really impressed. The interview went well. So, hopefully she gets the job.
Tattoos and Turmoil
The next day, Imani Walker and Britten head to a tattoo parlor. Imani is getting a tattoo. Britten tags along for emotional support. gets a tattoo. Britten has tattoos that aren’t for public display. Imani and Britten talk about the rooftop event. Imani makes it clear she does not compare herself to Jazmin. She is self made, not married for success. Britten tells Imani about the ultimatum from her hot husband. She really feels under pressure.
Mama Knows Best
Imani’s mom stops by for a visit. Her mom is an accomplished author. She has met Barack Obama! Wow. She strives for excellence and accepts nothing less. Imani tells her mom about the drug dealer comment. Her mom is not happy that Imani made that statement. She points out that Imani embarrassed Jazmin. Imani takes in what her mother told in a way she would not with anyone else. She respects the mother’s opinion. She considers apologizing to Jazmin for hurting her. Wow. Her mom is magic.
Next week, on Married to Medicine LA: Hot Mack sticks with the ultimatum. Imani’s mom dashes her dreams of a reconciliation with her father. Imani apologizes but Jazmin does not accept. There is an “intuiter” that clashes with Britten and Jazmin. See you next week!
