Tonight’s Married to Medicine recap Quote o’ Night is courtesy of Dr. Heavenly’s husband, Dr. Damon: “I let Heavenly be Heavenly, and she lets me be me — well, sort of…” Anyone who knows Heavenly, join me in a giant “Bwahahahahaha.”
Failures To Communicate
We open with Simone on the phone with Toya dissecting the post basketball brouhaha at Heavenly’s. Toya invites Simone to her swim party with all of the fun people — including past cast members Kari and Lisa Nicole. Damon and Cecil man the Big Green Eggs barbecuing oysters while the ladies lounge in Toya’s pool. They say it’s like a resort. WTF? This ain’t no Villa Rosa poolside. It’s all stark hardscape and not in a cool Mid-Century Julius Shulman way. The ladies laugh as Simon’s wig almost drowns in the pool.
Dr. Scott shows Dr. Eugene and Dr. Damon the office he and Dr. Contessa will be sharing. Eugene and Damon say they would not work with their wives. Scott says it’s been difficult reconnecting after Contessa’s time away at school. Counseling made things worse. Damon thinks the key to a good marriage is to love their spouse for who they are. That’s when he says that Heavenly lets him be him. Again, bwahahahaha. Contessa tells Scott’s cousin their marriage has been the same for 10 years, and not in a good way.
The Long Goodbye
Anila and Dr. Kiran inspect construction at their monstrosity of a house. Kiran says as an elective surgeon, his income has dropped 80-90% because of covid. She beams saying the cost has gone from $1.7 million to $3 million. He tells her that her dream home has become his nightmare. Dr. Heavenly’s son Damon Jr. is shadowing her at work. The 22-year-old premed student has decided to go into dentistry. Heavenly is finishing up on Miracle, the young woman who lost teeth during a peaceful BLM protest dustup with the cops. The permanent crowns are gorgeous. Heavenly tries to give Damon marriage advice as he and the captive Miracle cringe.
Simone and Cecil follow their sons, Miles and Michael, to Lee University. They worry about the racism Michael will face and hope he will stick to his studies. Cecil thinks Michael’s commitment to basketball will benefit him. In the other vehicle, it sounds like Michael is going to major in girls. He’s already got some lined up. After setting up the dorm and going out to eat, it’s time for the teary farewells. I am going to miss seeing Michael. My favorite scenes this season have been Simone and Michael in their ITMs. As we see flashbacks of Michael going back to childhood, I am tearing up too.
Next week: The Rev. Al Sharpton calls Heavenly; Toya brings “recycled friends” to Contessa’s Crystal Party; Damon wants the docs to fly a private jet (for health safety) to D.C. to test people for covid; Jackie and Simone meet to discuss their friendship status.
