Now a lot has happened tonight! There has been a lot of inviting, disinviting, and reinviting this season. Things tonight have been all over the place. Now it appears that we have healed from all the broken relationship. Maybe that's my fantasy, but I really thought we were moving forward.
Now for me, I am constantly pouring into new business ideas. I am opening a medical aesthetic spa, which is a compliment to my ob gyn practice. The ladies of Married to Medicine were all very gracious to come out and support my grand opening. Now the encounters made me a little nervous, but everybody was very kind and I appreciated their coming out.
I am pleased to have Quad and Simone over for input on one of my next business ventures, "The Power of the Vaginal Flower," an educational blog of vaginal FACTS! My web designer and my nurse were here to help put the final touches. We had a wonderful time and I they gave me some great business ideas. We laughed and drank the lemonade we all made at the LEMON SQUEEZE. I want women to take their unanswered questions to VF-Power.com! Knowledge is power, even if it's a vagina!
I am so sorry, knowing you lost your fertility during cancer treatment, that Mariah would say something so ugly about you don't know how it is because you aren't a mother. You mother mothers, and help mothers mother babies. You are a HERO!!
Dr. Jackie, I am so glad you are on the show. You show what a smart, professional African American woman looks like. Keep your head above the drama. God bless you.
Dr. Jackie i love the thought of a lemon squeeze . i had to borrow that idea and use it with my friends
I really have to tell you that I have nothing but respect for you. I loved you and Dr. Simone because the two of you stayed very level-headed in this mess that was created and that was blown out of proportion. You are a very strong woman, you have proven that by becoming a doctor and by overcoming breast cancer 2 times. My sister had breast cancer in 2007 and now it has returned and she will be undergoing major surgery (mastectomy) on 5/28. I only hope that the outcome will be successful just like you have defeated it twice. I am very worried because I love her with all my heart, she was like a second mother to me because when I was born she was 12 and she dedicated a song to me when I was a baby (Be My Baby). She is the best sister in the world and I am asking that you just pray for her that day because if anything were to happen to her, I don't know what I would do. Dr. Jackie you are truly a mature, respectful, strong, dedicated doctor and woman and my hat goes off to you. I do hope you return if there is a Season 2 because in between all this craziness and phoniness we have you and Dr. Simone. Thank you for being the person that you are. I wish you all the best in all of your future endeavors. Enjoy your summer and BTW I could never have my own children due to health and I took the comment that Mariah said very personally. But I guess she just doesn't get it!! God bless you and your family.
I can imagine your embarrassment being included in ths group of women. You and Simone are in an entirely different class from the others. You certainly handled all the nonsense very well, kudos! It takes someone with the maturity to control their impulses to fair well on these reality shows, and you've shown that in every situation presented. I wish you nothing but great success on your expanding business. Great woman, doctor and frind!
I eel you try to be the voice of reason, the rational one and there is nothing wrong with that except, you can't judge. You seemed to have judged Quad unfairly, you relented in time after seeing that Quad was/is a very intelligent young woman. I think you and Dr. Simone seem to judge Mariah more harshly than you do Toya or Kari. Not sure if you still have some resentment of Mariah saying you were not a mother, but hope you watched the whole show and see the two womeh you're supporting are also lacking in class. Don't know if I can say this on Bravo, but I loved your interaction with Tamar and Vince on the Braxtons.
DR. Jackie I respect you so much you carry yourself like a real woman stay away from mess as a professional you show us that you must remain level headed at all times the ladies really need you your wisdom, kindness and prayers may GOD bless you in all your endeavors
Dr. Jackie I absolutely loved your blog this week - I'm still laughing. Thank you for bringing some laughter to all this mess these ladies have created. You definitely keep it real. Your such a classy lady - don't ever change. Looking forward to seeing you next season.
I must say, I watch quite a few reality shows on Bravo and although I don't agree with a lot of the content I've never until now felt compelled to comment. I, at first, liked this show and the ladies; now my view has changed. Dr. Jackie, I think you are to full of yourself and refuse to see the whole picture. Dr. Simone, you want to be cool with all. The two of you have closed your eyes to what has happened between Mariah and Toya, and judged Quad wrong. You've failed to see Kari is manipulative and, I think, fake and jealous (of Mariah). Mariah, of course. isn't an angel; but wasn't at fault in the situation with Toya. Toya is a wanna be, a liar and truly evil. She said the things about Mariah's daughter purposely, she knew exactly what she was doing!Trying to bring Mariah and her husband trouble, not caring about the child. Kari (and her husband) never tried to find the reason for what happened, she went straight to "it's Mariah's fault," and processed to along with her husband, put them out of their home. They were supposed to be their friends, I'm glad I don't have those kinds of friends!! Kari feels she's above all of you and should be queen bee, that's her problem with Mariah. The green headed monster!
lilliansanb Thank you,I agree 100%.On WWHL,even after viewing the tape SHOWING that Toya started the fight both Dr.Jackie and Dr. Simone said "we still can't really tell who started it".Really?! I think neither of them are big enough to admit they were wrong in taking Toya side from the start.
I love you, Dr. Jackie! People can say what they want; you keep it real! Both you and Simone. My girls!
So hard for me to acknowledge, but I just don't like the pious, self rightgeous behavior of Dr. Jackie. Yes, you do act as if you are a principal, and thank goodness you've engaged Maria, because there's no way in hell y ou'd speak to me in the manner that you do. Your friend, Simone, has said in jest that you personality is truly rotten -- and It seems to be true to me. You have never seemed to be supportive of Mariah, and no it is not childish to write andd say as much. Actions speak louder than words. You speak to Simone (that's good for her, so no compliaints) like they are your children and/or subjects, neither being the case. Maybe you could bring some good energy into the awfully segregated world of Atlanta and its medical community. I find it bemusing that you don't like the attacks of a black woman tby a white woman through a black woman as it is the reason that most Meharry docs never integreat or engage with those from Emory, etc. It could have to do with how you treat each otther, and what you allow into you circle, regardless of the toxic nature. Now, go think on that since you love giving so many orders.
I really loved the interaction between you and Quad when she came to your home to help with your new spa website. I saw a lighter side of the both of you. The interaction between the two of you was real. I saw you laugh for the first time I hope that you become friends.
I hope that you will revisit the fight episode. Toya started that fight at Kari's house and she had a drink in her hand and took a sip before she confronted Mariah. Both women were wrong for fighting. But Mariah continues with her bad behavior. Please read Quad's blog about Toya. I believe the first car incident Toya was not cited due to no damages, but the second instance Toya was cited and Quad listed the citation number on her blog. Toya is always saying either Mariah and her family or Quad is lying on her. On What's happening with Andy, she told him that she didn't leak any information out about Mariah's family secret to anyone. Her husband and her were just talking about it. She admitted in an earlier episode (at the lemon squeeze meeting) that she told her friend/hairdresser in her home and was discussing it with her husband. as well.
What I find strange is both Quad's marriage business & Mariah's /family secret ended up at the hair salon.
firstname.lastname@example.org on WWHL Toya admitted (in so may words) that she started the fight with Mariah. So everyone was against mariah for starting the fight when in fact, as we all knew, it was toya.
Dr. Jackie, you come across as a bit judgemental and preaching to others.....stay in your own yard, do try to keep the peace but don't lecture them. If they can't act like adults, stay away from them.
Please tell Doctor Simone that I think she above everyone else (sorry, including you but you run a very close second) was the most enjoyable to watch this season and I love everything about her!!! She is smart, professional and very kind like you are, but she is more down with the people, if you know what I mean. Either way, I would love to have either one of you as my OBs and am so happy to see women so successful in the workfield and have fun too! Good luck to you both!
Love the blog, but given your personality, how the hell can you stand to be in the company of these hysterical women? I hope you get onto a show more suited to you because I don't think you are ghetto enough to be on this show, nor should you want to be. I will bid you farewell with one of my favorite quotes from you: "If Jesus came down from the cross, he would say forget this people!" (Or something like that) Take Care!!!
YOU AND SIMONE HAD NO RESPECT for MARIAH 'S HUSBAND'S CULTURE. BUT not because you are a DOCTOR that MEANS, that you GOT CLASS and you are A WORLDLY PERSON,that is opened to LEARN about OTHER CULTURES.
STAY with your POWDER DRINKS. LOL.
Dr. Jackie you are my heart. How you stood up and left when those girls couldn't get it together has made you one of the most influential women on t.v. your work with getting other's healthy by promoting exercise and your work with breasts cancer survivors has me awwed and I am so proud to be able to look and see another educated black woman on t.v. We need more and more like you.
Somebody call the paramedics, I am dying of boredom reading your blog. You are not funny at all, so it was a big miss.
out of all the ladies on the show I have to say that you are my favorite you were the only one who acted like you had some sense and you didn't get involved in the messy drama. I hope your new spa does great
OMG...can BRAVO please take Dr. Simone and Dr. Jackie and give them their own show. These doctors are too good for that gaggle of ghetto hags, aka "doctors' wives." Big deal they married a doctor. Who cares? Not me.
Dr. Jackie I will admit that at first I thought you were preachy and not as understanding toward some of the "circle" but as the season progressed I came to like and respect you.
You are so classy. You behavior almost negates Mariah, Quad, Toya and Kari's. Stay classy.
Dr Jackie....be very careful with your second business because the practice of medicine will become a sideline and patients will be the first to see it...and they will drop off...I have seen this very thing happen in my town....you can only stretch yourself so thin...you will have to choose at some point....the spa is not a medical necessity...your practice is for women....so you might want to consider that when the limelight drops off the spa...like most things, spas are a luxury, and women do not always luxuriate...you know that....but a pap smear is vital....
Did I hear you make a comment that if you look cute on the outside you'll feel good on the inside? Are you straight from Fernando's Hideaway a la Billy Crystal on SNL circa 1985?
I thought "good Christian women" know if you're good on the inside, it will show on the outside.
You an d Dr Simone are the voices of reason on this show. I don't understand how you can tolerate being around a few of them. If I were you, I would put a lot of space between myself and them.
I can somewhat agree, but the both of them have chosen a side instead of being neutral. I also think they have issues with Mariah calling herself "Queen B". I think that all females can learn something from these two female doctors as long as they don't allow themselves to be drawn into negative drama. As I stated, they were "BOTH" on Toya side when they knew that Toya was the person that started with Mariah. They don't have to be doing direct about it because they have Toya and Kari going after Mariah. Toya and Keri went after Quad before even getting to know her; they looked down on her and thought they were superior. Toya even had the nerve to approach Quad about the email her husband received from Quad finance (now husband). It disappointed me that the doctors also spoke out of two sides of their mouth when it came to Mariah. I agree that Mariah is at fault as well. She should not have engaged Toya and after that incident, she didn't carry herself like a lady. She seemed more childish with her childish behavior.
@lola95404 It is annoying to you because you are probably like those other tack-heads on the show.
@lola95404 Thank you Lola. She couldn't be calling me to the "principal's office" all the time. Because if she has never had conflict with another woman than how can she give me advice on how to resolve issues.
Dr. Jackie thank you for being normal and having a great heart. Because you are the most levelheaded, let me as this here. Do you read any of the Face Book comments? I did for the first time this weekend and realized that many of the comments are race driven. How did this show turn into a race issue? Did you ever consider this show would create racial tensions amongst viewers?
I really think you should get your own show not because you are so interesting but you are very judgmental women with stockings and open toes what language are you speaking doesnt sound like english i know you are a ritzy doctor but i know you know some slang or something i think this forum is to real for you yes you do have good intentions but what toya said and did you just overlooked and decided mariah should get over it this is this womans family and you dismissed it i think you should be dismissed
You may be a wonderful OBG YN but you need to work on dealing with you people who aren't your patients. We know you are educated now work on life skills.
I have my opinion about all the ladies on the show whether good or not so good. We are all human beings at the end of the day and this is about how people relate to one another. It doesn't matter what professions you are in. For I too work in the healthcare industry and to my surprise it is as realistic as it gets for reality television. I have encountered the same types of behavior in my own world of medicine. Whether they are doctors, doctors wives or husbands, patients and all the in between this is reality. People are not robots there human beings and we act like it. Whether we like it or not this is how people behave in general. This is nothing new to the world. I think even though the world has become better with the new technologies we are lacking people skills. The computer is doing all the work and we don't have the human connections we once had.
@ksmalls What are you talking about? I don't believe that doctor's wives act like these "ladies" act....no way.
I'm a lot older than you dear and people do act like that. You just haven't been around much. Live a little and you will find out. And if you thinks that bad, you ain't seen nothing yet. What you saw was light work. And I didn't say just doctor's wives only? Some people in general are crazier than that in all professions. You are in for a big surprise when you get older.
In my 50+ years I have never seen two grown women fight at a party. I cannot believe that anyone thinks this is normal behaviour.
I cannot believe that you are part of this group. These woman embarrass themselves and the medical community.
lv2watch Respect your Dr. Jackie.
in your bio you did not list your hometown or state?
They don't think so. It is what it is dear. And it has nothing to do with medicine. Just being people. People still amaze me with there stuff. And this is light work. It could have been a lot worst.
Jackie, I know you believe that you are funny but you are not. Having experienced heart failure recently, it is NOTHING to joke about if you have never suffered from it. How would you like it if someone speaks jokingly bout breast cancer? Just saying...
Dr. Jackie, thank you for being the voice of reason. I think you are beautiful and smart but wonder why you can't see through Kari and Toya.
I must admit in the beginning of the season; you were not my favorite; HOWEVER, my opinion has changed 100%! At first you were a little too judgmental for my liking; but, as I said my opinion has changed.
One of the things that I do LOVE about you, Dr. Jackie is that you truly want everyone to get along and there is not (and NEVER has been) cattiness in your tone and delivery. Also, all your methods are genuine and you mean what you say when you want everyone to get along.
Lastly, I hope being label the principal by Mariah is not an insult; because, Mariah clearly respects your opinions and thoughts. She may not agree; but, she definitely respects you.
Can't wait for the Reunion.
