Is everyone ready for their week’s Married To Medicine Recap? This week looks to be a doozy. Catch up on last week if you need so you can be fully prepared for the drama! We begin with Heavenly and Damon having a talk about Toya’s birthday party. Daddy has some issues with it. He doesn’t like that he heard about the naked models from the guys and not from his wife. Producers shade Heavenly when she tries to say that she didn’t want to partake with the nude models. They show Heavenly calling over one of them “little boys” (as she called them) over to get an up close view. Purely for her art. Look, it was innocent. Heavenly should have told Damon, but didn’t. That is surprising to me.
Jackie makes breakfast for the ladies as they are all meeting at Jackie’s to leave for Savannah. Jackie is happy that she and Mariah are in a better place. She hopes it lasts. The ladies are all upset that Aydin blabbed to the guys about the naked models. Oh Buffie is going along on this trip too. The bus arrives so they all get on the bus to embark on their 4 hour journey to Savannah.
The Longest Drive
The ladies tease Heavenly about her participation with the naked models. Simone congratulates Toya on moving into her house. Heavenly sees no reason to congratulate Toya on building a house. I don’t understand that. That was kind of nasty, no? The argument doesn’t last long, but the drive seemed to.
They arrive at their destination, a historic house from 1890. It looks beautiful. Toya says it reminds her of Heavenly’s house, old and historic but without the character. Gina, the house hostess, greets the ladies and regales them with tales of ghosts living there. There are only 5 bedrooms so the ladies have to share. Jackie and Contessa, Buffie and Simone, Mariah and Toya, and Heavenly and Quad will share a room. The ladies are all creeped out by the thought of ghosts. Mariah covers the mirrors in order to protect herself and Toya.
Rewriting Girl Code
The ladies all get ready in their best white ensembles for Jackie’s white party dinner. They begin with a prayer. The buffet looks so good. I need some good southern comfort food in my life. Contessa gets a text message from Scott who says he’s going away for a few days for a friend’s birthday. Toya and Jackie nail it with Contessa being passive aggressive with Scott. Neither should make any moves without consulting the other. Period.
Jackie wants to get down to business with trying to heal the group. Mariah says they’ve tried this over and over for years and nothing changes. Quad says this is a reset for all of them. They all write down one girlfriend code that the group should adhere to. Someone wrote that she needs honesty. Mariah is honestly hurt that she was accused of doing drugs. Jackie is put on the spot about not researching before repeating it on the podcast. She apologizes so they can move on.
You Light Up My Life
Quad had written down something about being received, but the tea here is that her divorce is nearly finalized! That’s great news for her. Buffie has a history of not having close girlfriends as she is Just. Too. Successful. Ummm…okay. I was starting to like her too. Jackie passes around a candle for each lady to light as a symbol to light up each other’s life.
Dinner ends so the ladies all leave the table, except for Toya and Quad. Toya tells Quad that Mariah is still hurt by her drug accusation. Quad says it’s the God’s honest truth. In a flashback we see Mariah getting a drug test done! They take the hair and are able to run it for up to 10 years past. This is to prove to the group that she hasn’t done drugs. Toya says that both Quad and Mariah have too much nastiness between them to even try to repair that friendship. I agree.
Revival and Rebuke
On the bus ride home, Mariah says that she’s hurt that no one has stuck up for her with Quad’s accusation. Heavenly pipes up immediately that she believes Quad. Heavenly says that Mariah made up that she had receipts on Daddy cheating, among other damaging accusations toward the group. Somehow Heavenly and Toya argue to the point Heavenly has to be restrained. I couldn’t understand what they were saying, something about your mama. Jackie can’t find her key to the front door so they are left to argue on the porch. Jackie and Buffie are mortified.
They finally get in the house. Mariah calls Aydin crying about how hurt she is. Toya comforts her, which was sweet. I love this kind, maternal side of Toya. Everyone feels bad for Mariah (to a point) but they know that the friendship between Quad and Mariah is too complex to heal. Jackie feels that the ladies are two teams that hang out together. They are not a unified group. Mariah feels that they all hate her so she feels on the outs all the time. Toya prays with Mariah which was sweet way to end the episode.
Next week on Married to Medicine: Scott and Contessa’s relationship is discussed. A dinner with masks happens. I am watching What What Happens Live because Simone and Toya are on. I’ll give the highlights as they happen. Hair and makeup look great, outfits not so much. Ugh again Andy mentions how he likes the new theme song. The ladies agree. Still a big fat NOPE on that. Andy asks what the ladies thought about Heavenly protesting too much about the nude models. They say she talks out of both sides of her mouth. Both Simone and Toya say she had a GREAT time.
Andy wants to know why Heavenly was so mean about Toya’s house. Toya says she could be jealous. Neither Toya or Simone believe the drug accusation. Then, they play a game about which lady would be the worst friend and all the answers are Heavenly. They feel she’s a hater. A caller asks if Contessa quitting school was a smart thing and Simone says no. She paid her tuition so why quit. Toya said that she should have gone to school in Atlanta. Simone and Quad don’t talk anymore! Oh snap! Cecil and Greg still hang out (as I reported a few weeks back). Then, they play a game where they ladies paint on a half naked man’s stomach. Toya wrote a children’s book that she gifts to Andy for baby Ben. Ok that’s all I got. Thank you for reading, we shall discuss further in the comments!
