It’s time for a new Married to Medicine recap!I cannot wait to see what these ladies serve us this week. We begin with Heavenly and her daughter Alaura getting their nails done. Alaura has grown into such a beautiful young lady. We flashback to 9 year old Alaura where we are reminded that she’s always been more mature than her mom. Whatever your opinion is on Heavenly, she truly loves her children. That’s been her saving grace many times in this show.
Scott is home making dinner for the kids. Contessa brings McDonald’s at 9:00 at night for the kids. I know she’s not home much but doesn’t that seem late to have dinner? Scott is not pleased. We are seeing serious cracks with their marriage due to Contessa going to school in Nashville. Contessa is full of criticism at how Scott is handling the house in her absence. Scott is resentful that Contessa left in the first place. Y’all know I have gone hard for Contessa in the past, but I may be having a change of heart. MAYBE. Stay tuned.
Heavenly and Jackie meet up for dinner and gossip. They rehash Damon’s Surgical Center party. Jackie wants Heavenly and Simone to stop fighting. She feels in the middle of it. Heavenly owns up to failing on respecting her friendship with Simone. Heavenly points out that Jackie ignored Mariah at the party. Jackie is planning an Emergen-”tea” party so that the women can stop the infighting. Unless it’s Long Island, there won’t be enough tea in Atlanta to end all the bickering amongst the ladies.
Toya visits Simone’s office as a patient. Oh no, she had a miscarriage! Production filmed her giving the pregnancy news to Eugene and the boys. They were all so happy, everyone screaming with joy. Toya feels like a failure and is struggling with her emotions after such a tragic loss. This is brutal. Simone is so loving and kind to Toya in this scene. My heart and sympathy goes out to Toya and her family. I think we all need a moment to collect ourselves after this scene. It was raw, real and just so freakin sad.
Not Everyone’s Cup Of Tea
Quad, Heavenly and Contessa meet up for a night on the town. They look drop dead gorgeous in this scene. Quad has a blonde wig that looks amazing. Contessa reveals her marital woes with Scott. Quad and Eugene’s divorce is nearing the finish line. Heavenly wants to set Quad up on a date. Quad is fine by herself in EVERY way. Until she meets Mr. Right, she is quite content with being alone.
It’s Jackie’s Emergen-”tea” party. She has invited Alyssa from her church to come mediate. Jackie wants her to focus on Heavenly and Simon’s argument. Mariah and Heavenly arrive wearing almost the exact same outfit. Mariah goes in to the party feeling salty towards Jackie. Everyone arrives looking beautiful. In her talking head, Toya tells us how the ladies are good at smiling at each other before launching attacks. Hopefully, Simone brought her helmet and armor tonight. Not only will she have Heavenly to deal with, Quad has things to say to her as well.
Even Jesus Would Shake His Head
Jackie hands out journals for the ladies to write down their grievances with each other. Jackie also has a vase full of cards on a stick that have a word describing their emotions. Alyssa asserts that she wants to help mend the friendships within this group. Mariah starts with telling Jackie how upset she is about her bringing up the drug rumor on the podcast. Simone then states how hurt she is by Heavenly betraying her trust. Heavenly chose “disappointed” but we’re not sure as to why. She uses some quotes that may or may not have been from the Bible?
Toya goes next. She is brought to tears that she cannot share her pain from the miscarriage with some ladies in the group. She doesn’t trust that some of the ladies will be a true friend to her. Quad takes a handful of cards. Giving us shades of Vicki Gunvalson, she has felt nailed to the cross by these women. After a lengthy list of hurt, she comes to healing point with Simone. Alyssa leads the ladies in a prayer circle. Simone and Quad agree to meet separately to talk in depth about their rift. It ended so beautifully. It can only go up from here, right?
Special Of The Night: Dredging Up The Past
Simone arrives at a restaurant to meet with Quad. Quad is super, super late. Simone is super, super aggravated. With no small talk (or apology for being late) Quad comes in hot. She tells Simone that she is still pissed from last season when Simone laid in to her at Heavenly’s crab boil. Simone thought all that was in the past. Quad demands that Simone tell her right here in the NOW why she did that to her. Simone feels blindsided by Quad’s sudden attack. Having zero time for anything other than a resolution, Simone gets up and leaves Quad at the restaurant. Where is Alyssa when we need her?
Next week on my Married to Medicine Recap: Contessa attempts to confide her marital issues with Heavenly, only to be reminded of where a woman’s place is. Mariah is still upset about Jackie bringing up the alleged drug use. Heavenly mortifies Alaura with a sex talk on national TV. Simone springs a talk with Jackie on Mariah. Hot damn these women never disappoint! See you here next week and as always in the comments!
