Welcome back to your favorite Married To Medicine recap! I’m so sorry I missed last week’s recap. The feeling of being sawed in half by my lower back going out prevented me from recapping. Thanks to our recap queen Tamara, I’m recovering and back to dishing on our fave Atlanta docs.
We begin with the gang arriving in Mexico for the couple’s trip. Heavenly and Daddy win a dance off for the penthouse suite. I do think Contessa and Scott should have won, but I digress. Everyone has a gorgeous room so they all are winners. Dang, Simone booked Quad’s room practically on the other side of the resort! Simone says it’s so Quad can have quality time with herself. I think it’s more that Simone can have quality time away from Quad. Everyone gets all dolled up for dinner, except for Mariah who is ill.
Dinner With A Chance Of A Huge Disagreement
After a super sketchy ride to the restaurant, they arrive safely to mixed drinks and a gorgeous setting. They are celebrating Cecil and Simone’s 23rd Anniversary. Jackie recorded Michael and Myles giving their parents cute congratulatory messages. Contessa asks Buffie how she’s liking the group trip so far. Buffie takes that as an opportunity to air her feelings to Jackie. She tells Jackie that she didn’t appreciate Jackie putting her on the spot about being infertile. Jackie says she didn’t mean to embarrass or hurt Buffie.
Toya points out the obvious that Jackie should have asked Buffie if she could use her as an example. Jackie insists that she used herself and Buffie as examples of infertility to help the women out there struggling. I get Jackie’s point because I truly don’t think she meant harm. However, she should have asked Buffie if she was comfortable sharing that information. It is up to Buffie if she chooses to share her story or not. Jackie doesn’t see it that way. She is LIVID. There’s a new Jackie in town and she is hell bent on making dinner in paradise awkward as hell.
Everyone is super uncomfortable. Heavenly pipes up to defend Jackie. Buffie loses it and tells Heavenly to shut the hell up! Buffie can dish it back to Heavenly, make no mistake! Contessa takes Heavenly to the bathroom to calm down. Toya wishes that she changed places with Mariah, who is most likely eating dinner in peace. Dinner finally arrives. It doesn’t get less awkward. Simone asks Buffie’s husband David for conflict resolution. He explains that people have to understand others perspectives in order to resolve a conflict. He is absolutely right. Hopefully Jackie was able to receive that.
Broke Down And Over Heated
The next day, the couples discuss the Buffie/Jackie argument. Most seem to be on Buffie’s side of the argument. Jackie is tired of apologizing as she feels that her kindness gets taken for weakness. She will make it right with Buffie in private, though is the last stop on the apology tour. After some 9am shots, the gang convenes to a van for a day of camel riding. It’s 103 degrees and they are crammed in a tiny ass van. Seemingly after they just start driving the van breaks down! I’m not even there and I can feel how much that sucks.
It’s so hot in the van that they all get out and start walking back to the hotel. They walk on the side of a freeway which is freaking Toya out. It seems to be a fairly quick walk back to the hotel thankfully. Safe in air conditioning and with alcohol, everyone is happy again. Except Heavenly. She’s pissed that Daddy is drinking. Heavenly sends Jackie over to ask him to stop drinking, which is a hard NOPE from Daddy. Daddy gonna drink if Daddy wants to drink. Heavenly sulks in the corner.
Bathing Suits And Messy Bootz
They move down to the pool where food and drinks are served. My broken back and I are so jealous of them right now! Oh Lord, Simone has a learning exercise for the group. This is messy, messy, messy. One question aimed for Contessa and Scott is “do you need your spouses permission to change careers”? Contessa feels that it’s a double standard with men and women changing careers. The wives support their husbands but the husbands don’t support their wives. Heavenly says that if she were to change careers, Daddy would support her as a husband should. But, Contessa says that not all husbands do that.
Later, in their joint talking head, Contessa tells Scott that he’s allowed to change careers. Contessa truly feels that Scott flat out doesn’t support her. Scott looks so hurt and walks off the set. Contessa begins to cry. She is yet again alone. This is some deep shit. It makes me so sad that they both are so hurt.
On next week’s Married To Medicine recap: More Scott and Contessa fighting. Quad and the ladies girl talk. The men get revenge for the Sip N’ Paint which puts Daddy in tits view with a stripper. Heavenly doesn’t react well to that news. Thank you all for reading. Can’t wait to hear your opinions in the comments!
