So here we are together all in one room and of course it looks like an operating room! When I'm in am OR it's usually to look diagnose and repair the problem!
Well tonight we are STILL trying to diagnose and repair the problem(s)! It's still some of the same old questions with the main questions being:
2. Who started the fight?
3. Who is friend or frenemy?
4. Will the ladies stay together for another season?
Well there are a lot of hard questions that went out with some tempers flaring and tears almost falling! The one thing I can say is hopefully wounds can begin to heal and we can all stay married to medicine! I do know I will stand firm representing the calm(est) side of things and keep my reactivity to an all time low because ther I no room for any more drama!
Everyone looks beautiful and hopefully can end this season feeling like they have been true to themselves and true to the man or woman that ties them to medicine! It's been a long hard season but I think lives have been changed forever! The world has seen what happens when the white coats are on and OMG have they seen what happens when the white coats come off!
Jackie, you are the most sound and level-headed one in this group. Stay far away for Mariah, she is messy and full of drama, she will pull you in! At next year's reunion, you may be in the hot seat!
Thank you for being a part of the show! You are doing an excellent job and I know you do not need me to tell you! I am a high school teacher and these kids need to see you!! Thank you again!
I like how you handled yourself. I think you should not be on the show. Your to good to be around the drama. But at the same time, I also think you brought balance to the show .
Dr. Jackie thank you for your patience and understanding. We need more women like Dr. Jackie and Dr. Simone on the show. Dr. Simone is fun and funny. I love you both!
Dr. Jackie, the show does need a clear voice of reason. Please stay active and more visible the next season !!
Dr. Jackie please tell me why you are socializing with these women? I know that you are hoping to be the leading example but this is what I call beating a dead horse, these women are not teachable from what I have seen and quite honestly, I am embarrassed by their behavior. As a black woman I cringe, and thankfully your presence would help to erase the stereotyping of black women but the ignorance in my opinion overshadows your positive input. Maybe you can get a spinoff where black women can be better represented in this society. I wonder about these doctors who married these women, things must be tough in Atlanta.
BTW, I am sorry if the ignorance of Mariah has hurt you when she implied that not being a mother puts you in a position to not understand her "dilema' , how insensitive of her. I think that you are a mother to the many babies you deliver and to the women you mentor, God has given you the love and wisdom to Mother those who are open to receiving what you have to offer.
1) Yes they meant to spill Mariah' business. Why was that conversation discussed and who business was it. Sounds like Toya had no intents on keeping a secret because she talked it.
2) Toya started the fight. Keep your hands to yourself especially when you know that you have at one -point spoke upon someone business. Just sad the Mariah's sister conveyed the information at that specific time.
3)Quad and Mariah , Jackie and Simone, Kari and Toya just to lonely souls that have been thrust together through drama.
4) Oh course, all getting paid. Ms. Jackie the public feeds on confusion and Bravo loves it!
Dr. Jacky why are you on this show? This show appears to be all about Mariah and making everyone on the planet know Mariah is the Queen of Everything! It is disgusting and I am appalled you are even associated with it. What positive qualities do you seriously think this show is bringing to the medical community of Atlanta? Very few! Mariah did nothing but constantly make fun of you on the show behind your back and basically laughed in your face about your suggestion of her acting more mature! Evidently the Queen does no wrong! Mariah hates Kari out of jealousy and it will never change. No one gives Kari the respect she deserves. Kari tries to move on and behave properly but is totally overlooked and ignored! Dr. Simone is just showing herself to be a doctor who drinks all the time! Nice behavior modeling there!
I just want to know what the premise of this show was originally. I bet if you asked each lady (and I use that term loosely for many) that question you would get six different answers! I just feel very sad that again Atlanta and the South come across as an ignorant, low class, uneducated, immoral society! Please think about your role on this show and alter the message that is being sent because it is not pretty for any of you!!
I hope you decide to adopt. The system is full of older children who need a break. I don't have any children although I'm capable. I choose to help raise others and I can say I'm better than some that should have had permission. Love is grand and needs to be shared. I hope you continue to bless us with your presence. But beware they will get rid of you first because you are not drama. KUTGW!
Dr. Jackie.....you & Dr. Simone are the only 2 women on this show who live exciting yet drama free lives!!!! You 2 were so refreshing to watch & definitely showed a different side to the women who we viewers are accustomed to seeing on Bravo & other reality shows, where most of the women behave like THUGS!!!!
Dr Jackie, you represent class very well. Dr Simone, Toya, Kari, Mariah and Quad could use a page from your book. I didn't mention Ms Lucy cause you can't teach an old dog new tricks. By the way, I think OWN needs to give you a show. Let's call it "A day in the life of Dr. Jackie". I'd definitely watch. Clearly you don't fit in on Bravo. Anyways I love you!
Miss Jackie, You have certainly try to lead by example! Your etiquette, compassion and class shine through in everything you say and do. If only a few of the others could follow your example. Sometimes you just can't teach an old dog new tricks. Especially when they think loud obnoxious and hoodlum-like behavior is funny and appropriate. When people start avoiding them like the plague will they maybe get the hint. Hopefully it won't be too late for their reputation or quite possibly their M.D. husbands. As I'm sure you know, many times you are judged by the people you hang out with. I hope you continue to stay as lovely as you were in this first season. Kari, Ms. Simone, and you (Toya seemed to be trying towards the end of the season); showed wonderful restraint in your handling of most of the volatile interactions. May God bless you and yours!!!!! You are a True LADY!!!!!!!!!
Dr. Jackie, as usual, you are the voice of reason on reunion 2. If your goal was to be a better example, a better role model for women and girls, you have succeeded. Dr. Simone is right there with you..in her own way. You were trying so hard to get Mariah to see that she is at the crux of all the problems; while trying not to get her riled up. Do you think you could have a chat with Lucy?
Love your calmness Dr. Jackie and sometime God uses us for greater things and purposes. You may not be a biological mother of a child but you are a mother of peace to many. Keep helping others untangle the webs that they weave. I love your spirit and your patiences! Love, Love, Love ya!
Kudos Soror! Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. salutes you and the positive representation of an accomplished, Christian, working Black woman who cares about the community around her. The drama of the other ladies overshadowed anything positive in their worlds. I appreciate Dr. Simone as well.
Please keep the Drs and dump all of the wives. The Drs are measured, mature and interesting to watch. The wives.... there is more to life than sniping at one another and trying to exceed the Jonses - reality show or not. Additionally - people who refer to themselves in the 3rd person are just ridiculous posers and delusional.
@Rebecca535 Yes keep Dr. Jackie and Dr. Simone and show queen b, puppet quad and the rest the door.
Dr. Jackie I am so sorry for calling the lemon squeeze a lemon tea,I knew that didn't sound right. As I said before though I do think that a lemon squeeze is a great way to resolve conflict between a group of friends.
They will know we are Christians by our love!!! By our love and you exemplified what a Christian looks like.
You are an inspiration! You are tough, but fair! I love how you rose above the drama!!! I appreciate you being candid about your breast cancer journey, especially since I am going through chemo. That was so inspiring to me.
Thank you Dr. Jackie for being a faithful, christian, wise woman on the show. I am so thankful that the show has you on the show to teach Mariah, Quad, and Toya how a civilized women should behave. They have not behaved like children but worse, they behaved like savages. I hope you will continue on the show as these women need your guidance. But I will understand if you decide to not continue because Mariah, and Quad and Toya are VERY arrogant and watching their behaviour It looks like even God is below them.They are immature and they are also incredibly stupid, all three of them give doctor's wives a bad name.
They are an embarrassment to the female gender.
Really enjoyed watching you on this show.
1. No I do not think they did.
2. Mariah's Mom & Sister (should of been brought up after the party) Mariah, did start the hair pulling & up in her face first. Then Toya was classless with the wine glass throwing & both were acting like childish.
3. Mariah & Quad - friends if you are on their team & treat Mariah like Queen Bee. Quad is a follower & loves the attention.
4. Hope not. Get rid of Mariah & Quad and maybe the show will have a purpose.
Stay who you are. You were acting like a good friend to all involved and trying to stay neutral. Do not apologize to anyone, you are a class act.
Thank you for being classy! Thank you for representing yourself well! Thank you for speaking well! Thank you for taking the high road! Please continue. Hoepfully, it will rub off. You have your work cut out for you.
I don't understand how Dr. Jackie, Dr, Simone and some viewers can overlook the fact that Toya has not only trampled over some serious societal boundaries, such as gossiping about a 9 year old child's private life and threatening MAriah and Kari with pepper spraying and stun gunning them. Why is this ok with people? Toya attacked MAriah and her child and it is all on tape. Yet it is acceptable for her to continue to openly attack and threaten them.
Dr. Jackie I applaued you for being the woman you are and for trying to be open by allowing us viewers into your somewhat personal life. I must say this also that you are truly a Lady in the realness of being a woman. You tried to accept LaKeisha"Mariah" for just who she is but you know the tree by the fruit it bares!!
Hello Dr. Jackie i do love the peace and the calm way that you bring your point in conversation .Is great to have someone like you around a great example of a Lady.
You are very intelligent and you don't like the craziness, and I get that. But, you speak to these adult ladies like you are above them. What kind of reaction do you think that you will get when you do this to other adult individuals. My prescription for you is: keep your conversations respectful. Respect is not just given; it's earned. Telling someone to shut up is a bit much.
loejj77 I don't get that from Dr. Jackie at all. I think if you are used to "hunty" and "catch that dirt" and "yeeees - she is here", you may think that speaking correct english and articulating your point comes off as "talking down to people". When in actuality, it is simply someone speaking intelligently. Why should Dr. Jackie have to speak like a cartoon character to have a conversation with grown women? Maybe Mariah and Quad need to stop being so insecure....maybe they feel inferior because THEY know they don't have the class or smarts to go toe-to-toe with the likes of Dr. J.
Dr. Simone is very approachable, fun and relateable, as well. From what I have seen, she has not treated anyone as though she is "above" them, but Mariah and Quad continue to insinuate that. Sounds to me like they are the ones with the inferiority complexes served with a side of jealousy.
Dr. Jackie I don't think you talk to these women like you are above them. 1. You don't need their stress 2. You speak with authority and, conviction and 3.you have tried relentlessly to get some of these women to rise to a higher standard. Two people cannot speak at the same time. Your philosophy to agree to disagree agreeably is something that Mariah, Quad and Toya will never actualize. Its going to take something awesome to humble them. Keep doing what your doing Jackie you are a great mentor.
Toya Started the Fight by walking over to Mariah. She confronted Mariah during her husband's party. Toya broke the glass.
Dr. Jackie you are an amazing woman and I am so glad you are on the show to balance out the portrayal of absolute foolishness these other "ladies" bring. Every show needs a Dr. Jackie! Be Blessed!
I agree with Louski32. I like both Mariah and Dr. Jackie, but this time Mariah was acting like a little child. Dr. Jackie was trying to get her point across and really couldn't because Mariah kept jumping in and interrupting her. It was a forum for everyone to have a chance to speak but I was actually disappointed in the way Mariah conducted herself because she just wouldn't shut up and give anyone outside of Quad a chance to really say anything. Like I said, I like Mariah but her behavior was just wrong on Sunday and now tonight she has her sh&t stirring mother coming on..................*sigh*.
02111938 I agree 100%. I like to know why Mariah got bent cause Toya and Keri didnt show up at her home when she was all crazed at Dr Jackie's opening towards Keri. I actually dont blame Keri. Also, Quad who needs a life jumps on Toya, I can see why. Mariah's mother started all the bs comparing stuff at keri's house and saying what she did to Toya, and Mariah acted like an idiot when she walked in Keri's home, so how is this ok to Mariah? Having doubts on her
Toni-Girl I also feel Lucy needs to stay out of it. It doesn't matter how many hatchets Mariah burries with these women, she always finds away to keep the drama ball rolling. She really needs to go get her life.
Dr. Jackie, regarding your first question, did Eugene and Toya mean to spill the beans...no, of course not. They were having a profoundly, private conversation in front of an unrelated third party. It was utterly careless.
What is important is not that they made a mistake, it is how Toya acted after. She should have apologized profusely ( and sincerely ) and then kept her head low. She not only did not of that, she acted as if she was the one put out. She was incredibly mean and nasty. There may be some some things that are still not clear, but what is clear is that when Mariah decided to put together an elaborate dinner to put everything behind her, Toya and Kari didn't show up at the last minute. That is wrong and malicious.
The other known entity is that, in fact, Toya started the physical altercation. It is on video. Toya approached Mariah in an aggressive manner, put her hands on her, she kept slapping Mariah's hands ( when Mariah touched her hair, the same way Toya had been touching Mariah's ) and then Toya threw a glass and drink at Mariah's face. That is indisputable.
What is also indisputable is that Mariah apologized for a couple of things outright without any excuses. Toya has not done so. She blamed Mariah for confiding in her. Toya actually said to Mariah, " You shouldn't have told me your business !" Toya basically told Mariah that she should not have trusted her. That is slimy.
Dr. Jackie, silence may be golden, but staying silent during an injustice is not. And Mariah suffered several.
tealdragonfly22 Outside of who is right or wrong, Mariahs actions are uncalled for at ever event her and her sick kick Quad created alot of unnecessary acts, inluding Mariah's mom. Mariah talks about having this stance about them cause their husbands are doctors, but she is clearly the one acting out.
Also, this is a reality show, you dont come on a show when you have secrets or matters that you need kept quiet. She should have thought about all this before she signed on to invite the world in her home and life. Besides, she shared with others besides Toya, so it must not have been that important.
tealdragonfly22 but what is clear is that when Mariah decided to put together an elaborate dinner to put everything behind her, Toya and Kari didn't show up at the last minute. That is wrong and malicious.
That is simply not the case, Mariah stated at the table her intentions were to lure Toya and Kari to her home under the guise of the "elaborate dinner" to confront them and "kick them out" of the circle. There is nothing "classy" about that.
highheelshadyboots tealdragonfly22 I agree, Mariah is a vengeful person! I mean, how many times must Toya apologize?
Dr. Jackie, I like you however, you were wrong to talk down to Miriah like she was a child! You don't tell a grown adult to stop talking. What you should have done is waited until she finished and then spoke. But it is insulting when you speak to an adult as though they are a child! Be the voice of reason not the voice of discipline to the women!
Mariah never stops talking.....that's the problem. No one can get a word in around her. Maybe if she acted like a grown woman, Dr. Jackie would treat her like one......
Louski32 howgrays Well, if Mariah is not acting up to Dr. Jackie's standards then why should she engage in conversation. Like I said if she can't seem to get her point across with these group of women maybe she should find another platform to be a part of next season.
Louski32 howgrays DR. jackie is not acting like a grown woman. She is acting as if these ladies need to do as she says. Get real, everyone is an adult. She act as if she was talking to one of her employees.
She shouldn't have had to talk to Mariah AT ALL. Andy asked DR. JACKIE a question clearly addressed to DR. JACKIE and before she can answer Mariah has her mouth open because Mariah thinks everything is about her and her childish foolishness, Dr. Jackie had to address her.
1. I don't think that Toya and Eugene meant for their comments to cause Mariah and Aydin pain. I hope that Eugene will think twice before he openly discusses someone else business with Toya because even though he wasn't taking about a patient, it makes me question (me being a HIPAA privacy officer) what else is he discussing with her. Instead of Toya trying to correct things with Mariah she made light of Mariah and Aydin hurt feelings. Toya really made herself look bad.
2. I don't think the question is "Who started the fight?". They both showed low class. Toya showed bad timing with Mariah at the party, Mariah should have handled things better and Mariah's mother showed bad timing and should have let Mariah and Aydin handle that situation at another time.
3. Quad is a friend to Mariah more so that Mariah to Quad. Drs. Jackie and Simone are friends. Toya needs to realize that Kari is a fremeny.
4. As far as staying together for the season...I don't know I guess it depends on what they came on the show for. One thing for sure is that Kari's agenda was to make money and use this stage as a platform for the children's book she wrote.
Mariah and Quad need to calm down with the gay vernacular. With Quad it is funny and entertaining but with Mariah it seems forced and silly and with the two of them together it is sometimes too much.
I like how you try to keep it classy especially when we are living in a time when women fighting and acting unladylike on TV for money is being view as entertainment or "keeping it real". Also your silence speaks volumes and gets your point across because you can sit back and let people tell on themselves.
I don't care how many children you have not born, nor how many Mariah has; you are the one who displays the desired maternal qualities of one associated with "Dearest Mommy", while Mariah displays all of the selfish, self-centered qualities associated with "Mommy Dearest".
