Jacqueline Walters

Dr. Jackie thinks there are some problems that should not be joked about (OK Quad?).

on Mar 29, 20130

Surprisingly, anorexia is not about food or weight. It often times is a psychological and emotional need to be perfect and fit into society. In Kari's case, it was the need to fit into the modeling society. There is extreme pressure to be thin. Let's not get it twisted, I make references to weight, but I would never reference a person with a known history of an eating disorder. As a two-time breast cancer survivor, it is very important that I eat right and exercise. I may not have any control over recurrence, but totally in control of prevention.

I have the utmost respect for Kari for seeking help. Admitting the problem is always the first step. Eating disorders can be devastating for the person and their families. Without treatment, people with eating disorders can die.

Even Dr Jackie can be more sensitive when it comes to my "Thin is In" motto. Thank you Kari, for the reminder. Education and awareness is the key to health and prevention.

Dr. Jackie you are the one that told Dr. Simone if she thew up she's lose weight so what is the difference? Isn't throwing up to lose weight a illness? A sickness? Please let me know!

Wow Dr. Jackie really brought this home and I love her style.  I know that she is not popular among the other wives but that is so unimportant.  They could stand to gain a lot from her if they just listen and follow, she is truly a welcomed honest spirit that the women need.

I admire a woman with class such as you Dr. Jackie.  I say you and Dr. Simone should become role models for my girl, Quad.  I commend Quad for standing up for herself, but she does need to tone her reactions down a bit.

I'm sorry Dr. Walters I'm not trying to be mean, but you and the other Doc look very good and have nice manners. The rest of the ladies look kinda rough I've never seen that many doctor's wives look so ugly. All that money and their make-up look like Bozo the clown did their faces. Its good to see a nice looking Doc have it going on. You are a class act.

Hello, Quad was not AWARE of Kari's past..... Secondly this coming out, I think will cause this issue to be talked more about and help people dealing with these. So regardless how it came out it came.... So get over it and stop trying to act so righteous.

1. We did not need for you to explain what anorexia is. Get over yourself. 2. I'm sure Kari was under psychiatric care to treat her disease. Interesting that she looks down on that particular area of medicine.

It was a low mean blow,totally uncalled for. Quad is no class act no matter how much she pretends to be one. I hope they are watching ...but in their minds...the probably think all is well. Their husbands should be ashamed and appalled.

I agree, anorexia is not something to joke about, PERIOD! However, one sensitive subject doesn't over shadow another, both were wrong!!!! Kari, started judging Quad and being rude from the beginning. If you don't want people to talk about you and hurt your feelings.... 1 don't go on  reality tv, 2 don't dish it if you can't take it, 3 get your head out of your pretentious butt and carry yourself with real class, not the pretend facade you portray!

Yes, I agree. But attacking someone's relationship/marriage is just as personal and private. Investing in one's health is the same as investing in your marriage. Hopefully, both will last a lifetime. -KAT

You are my favorite cast member so far. It's nice to see a good role model on these shows.

They are all taking pop shots at one another.  If Medical Mistress Kari can't stand the heat she should stay out of the kitchen.  She opened up that can of worms by starting this mess to begin with -- she and Tacky Toya.  All is fair in love and war.

Thank you for being classy Dr Jackie! It's nice to see a woman of any color have class on one of these shows. For some reason, Bravo seems to believe they must have some loud mouthed rude person on the show to make it successful which I don't believe. It would really be great to see some supportive strong women for a change. Heaven knows young women could use some better role models these days!

So true, Dr. Jackie. Her comments were cruel and far reaching.  It's nothing to joke about. 

 

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that you continue to be professional and classy as the season progresses. 

 

The other women have been immature and an embarrassment to the greater physician's wives' community.  Whether they agree or not, they are a reflection on their husbands and their practices and I'm appalled at what I've seen so far.  This is NOT the message that should be sent about the Atlanta medical community.

Way not cool for Qaud to want to showboat at someone's disease expense.  And her hubby's is a what??

 Ginger49 you are SO right.  These women must have NO mirrors.  I've never seen such hideous make up and weaves down to here with some much exposed forehead in my life.  That Quad needs to rethink the hair style and that nasty attitude she carries.
