It’s that time of the week again: Married to Medicine recap time! Full disclosure, my zoo was hit with a virus so I’m hopped on cold medicine and the promise of an amazing episode. Let’s hope these women deliver their much needed dose of medicine! We begin with Jackie coming home to home cooked water, courtesy of Curtis. They are on a mission of creating the perfect home. They love the location of this house. Now it just has to be rebuilt to fit Jackie’s high standards. It’s a high price to pay (literally) for Jackie’s happiness. They disagree on a lot but in the end, Jackie will have the house of her dreams.
Contessa and her family have a picnic at the park. Contessa’s children clearly miss her. I’m wondering if Contessa really understands that? She wants Scott to fully take over her role in her absence, which includes lots of love and affection. He can hug them all day long but it won’t take the place of their mom not being there. Outside looking in, it seems like Contessa has guilt about going to Nashville but can’t admit it. So she takes it out on Scott by pointing out how he’s not doing it all wrong. This pop culture PHD is going to take me far! It’s tough to watch a nice family in strife. I hope they figure it out soon.
Decent Party Themes Are Taxing
All the women get ready for the “end of the tax season” that friend of the show Buffie is throwing. Simone and Quad will see each other for the first time since their meeting at the restaurant last week. Oh snap, Bufife has a live in house manager named Sylvia. Where do you get one of those? God my zoo needs one. The current one isn’t working out. Yes, the current one is me.
Anywho, her house is fabulous. Everyone arrives ballin’ with an under 500 dollar outfit budget, per the party rules. Simone greets Quad warmly. They talk briefly and decide to be cool for the evening. (Fun fact: I did a Twitter deep dive this weekend. Simone had a birthday party for Cecile. Only Toya, Eugene and DR. GREG went from the show. Simone and Quad do not follow each other on the Twitter. I think this will be important as the season goes on).
Under 500 Dolla Will Make You Holla
All the ladies gather outside on the couches. Heavenly points out that House Manager Sylvia is very attractive. She wonders if Sylvia manages Buffie’s husband as well. Joseline Hernandez shows up. She and Toya spar about what to call motherhood. I’m honestly confused as to how this is an argument and that it spiraled so quickly, but it did. Joseline seems like she targeted Toya for a fight.
Mariah moves Toya to the bathroom to cool her down. While Toya is in the bathroom, Joseline approached Eugene to call Toya a ho. Eugene is pissed so he and Toya leave. Buffie apologizes to both Eugene and Toya. That being said, Buffie seems kind of in on this attack. But why? I’m just plain confused. Is there a Toya/Joseline thing we should know about? Or a Toya/Buffie thing? Are we missing a backstory here?
The next day Toya and Mariah meet up for coffee. Toya is still upset about the party. She feels that Buffie didn’t have her back so as far as she’s concerned, Buffie is nonexistent. Toya is planning an art themed birthday party for herself. I don’t think Buffie will make the guest list.
Messy Boots Are Made For Walking
Contessa and Scott are at home doing parent stuff with the kids. Contessa has a talk with her oldest daughter who is having some anger issues. It seems to stem from Contessa’s absence. Contessa has a beautiful family. I don’t know what to say about it other than that.
It’s Toya’s birthday party. The ladies are going to paint nude male models. Ahhh Kari Wells from season 1 is here! I have missed her and pronunciation of Duncan. She is shocked to see Mariah and Toya in a friendly place. Everyone is as happy to see Kari as I am. Toya is SHADY! She refers to Quad as Nene’s sister in that blonde wig. I cannot finish this recap. RIP me, officially deceased. Spirit PCK is coming through to let you know that messy Simone is bringing Buffie to the party, despite Toya telling her not to.
Simone Gets Messy
Simone’s all out ignorance of Toya’s clear request has resuscitated your girl here. Simone, Simone, Simone we see you! Messy as hell. Toya specifically told Simone not to bring Buffie. Toya is not pleased when Buffie arrives, but she doesn’t make a scene.
Making pointed jabs at Simone,Toya gives a speech about how she lost the baby. She wants to feel positivity in her life again. Buffie gives Toya a sincere condolence on all she’s been through lately. Then the male models come out naked as the day they were born. The ladies are shocked! They weren’t expecting this. Heavenly won’t tell Daddy…which will bite her in the butt next week.
Next week on Married to Medicine:
The women have fun at the nude art party; Fallout from Heavenly withholding the nude men from Daddy; Contessa drops out of school. This dose of Married to Medicine was indeed just what the doctor ordered! Thank you all for reading. I cannot wait to discuss this further in the comments!
PS: I’m watching WWHL with Jackie and Heavenly. Thank you Nannette for the heads up! Quick synopsis: They all love the new theme song which I just say WRONG. Heavenly seems to have new front teeth? Yup confirmed that she has new teeth. Heavenly feels Toya was set up by Buffie with the whole Joseline thing, which makes sense. It really seemed to have come out of nowhere. All the guys are still friends with Dr. Greg. Toya tweets in that she was indeed set up by Buffie. That’s the gist!
