Hello Bravo fans and welcome to my blog.
It was wonderful and exciting to see the first episode on the big screen, after many months of daily filming and hard work.
I had wanted to do this show as I thought it would make for some interesting television, taking viewers into my personal life and shedding the typical stereotypes of a doctor's wife. I feel that I have an important message to share that could in turn help others in their lives.
When watching the show, I was mostly shocked and saddened to hear the Quad thought I had gone to Mariah's party with the intent of hurting her, by saying her husband was a "psychologist" instead of a "psychiatrist." I know the difference and it was a stupid mistake on my part.
I did not mean to insult Dr. Greg. I know he worked very hard to achieve his M.D. status and if my intention had been to hurt her, there were far worse things I could have said, believe me! I do not not waste my precious time in trying to hurt someone. Life it too short. I am a strong believer in karma, so I always try and live a good honest life. I seek to lift up and inspire people, not bring them down, but I will often speak my mind and call things as I see them.
Kari, I think you have been grace under fire given the prejudice shown towards you by Quad and Mariah. They have seen fit to make fun of someone from another culture, one of which they have obvious ignorance. They wouldn't like it if anyone made fun of their cultural roots. Their bullying masks their weakness. Quad's husband must not be very good at his profession. I think a psychologist would have more skill then he evidently has or else he would have married a psychologically (or should I say psychiatrically) healthier partner.
Kari, ou called her husband a "psychologist" even after you were corrected, either you don't listen and are completely dense or you don't care. Either way you are dead wrong.
I don't think your statement was intentional but I do think you classify people. I just don't understand why you put so much emphasis on class. By the way darling...being a Doctor or Mrs. Dr. will not get you to the gates of heaven, let alone in.
My dear, you need a lesson from Lisa Vanderpump. When it comes to class, she is the perfect example. Whether it is money or class, those who truly have it feel no need to verbalize it. Another thing about Lisa Vanderpumps, she respects the intelligence of the viewers and knows that we are perceptive enough to see a person for who they truly are.
Kari is the worst......she is the classic covert "Mean Girl" ....yes she pruposely calls Dr. Gregg a Psychologist because she believes in her warped, , insecure mind that that a Psychologist is inferior to a Psychiatrist....and she responds in true Mean Girl fashion when Quad attacks her overtly. Quad is true to the game and not new to the game...Quad gets it and is serving all of them just what they ask for including that "wanna be" Toya....She wants everyone to believe that she is transformed..... but she is the quintessentsial "hood rat" that tries to keep everyone who tries to come up DOWN........She is so typical!
I am sorry they only showed this side of you! I hope we get to see more - like when you were with your husband - I loved it! Can't wait until next week!
Wow so you single handedly turned your husbands practice around. Thats a hell of a contribution to your marriage! You give and not just take! I like how you tried to take charge when your husband came home but real life does interrupt romance at times. LOL
Hard to believe that you knew the difference between a psychiatrist and a psychologist since you made the mistake over and over in a dismissive way. Not nice. You made it very hard to like you.
Sainbury No way if you are married to medicine for 11 years would you make that "mistake" she knew damn well she was doing. I'd have more respect for her if she just owned it and admitted to being shady.
I'll just give you my new pholosiphy on these shows, since you're on a new show....if a fight or someone's rudeness doesn't make sense, then it's probably fake and someone's probably trying to get more camera time and will probably write a blog playing innocent and deny they went after someone and think that made them interesting. But it didn't. What's interesting is when a woman of priviledge uses her time and money wisely and inspires us to do the same. Try it, the world may become better, nicer, and you could have a tiny slice of responsibility in it!
Love seeing you and your husband. You are very classy and people are jealous....best line of the night #keepitstrange.
People seem to have a problem with strong woman who doesnt act all crazy...people want to judge someone who speaks proper and is a strong woman...you are representing your husband very well #stayclassy
Quad already wrote that there is nothing wrong with being a psychologist, so my question to you is do YOU think that it's unimportant because such a role doesn't have the initials M.D. behind the name? How elitist of you, if you do.
Kari you were cruel weather you know it or not. i hope you saw yourself and realized how you hurt Quad by underminding her husband 's title. you should be a little more careful in your future dealing Quad as you can see she's out for revenge
You were def being condescending. I can't stand people who live vicariously through the accomplishment of others then pass judgement. Kari, I would love to hear what you have done before you met your husband on your own. Getting dressed up every night to appease the breadwinner is not only showing viewers that you have absolutely nothing to do but also reiterates that you don't have a backbone to criticize anyone.
I appreciate you explaining on your blog. Quad was feeling ganged up on and you all were openly talking about her. I believe you were not trying to insult the good doctor, but with all the goings on at that party, I can see why Quad would think so.
Just apologize and move on. I agree that Quad looks bad talking of revenge and I am glad you are moral enough not to indulge. But don't indulge in criticizing and looking down upon people either, because both are ugly. I really enjoyed the first episode, I hope you are true to your word that you don't think you are better than anyone.
I don't believe that Kari explained anything in her blog she wrote that blog because she knew people would go in on her for the way she behaved so she tried to smooth it over to try and make herself look good but the damage is already done. Quad wouldn't have to look bad if Kari hadn't started it now she wants to act like she is afraid of Quad you weren't scared when you kept insulting Quad. So I guess next sunday she will be back her on her blog explaining why she sent the text to Quad
Where on earth are you from? That accent is the most affected bunch o' nonsense. It was the only comedy bit on an otherwise tacky show.
DJ49 TeresaToo As a person who spent three amazing years living in Europe, I am very familiar with the English accent. Aside from Kari's, I have never heard an English accent sound so pretentious and condescending. However, seeing and hearing Kari does provide a good laugh because she reminds of the British comedy series "Absolutely Fabulous". The show's title is misleading, but those who have seen it should know exactly what I mean.
Well said friend!! You are a very well spoken high class lady. You are highly respected in our community and do not have a mean bone in your body!-Julie
I think you meant to say classless because Kari doesn't have a ounce of class in her life
breezie_bre Jagarg@aol.com If Kari is high class, I fear what low class is. Her back pedaling in her blog was insulting. She purposely kept referring to Quad'a husband as a psychologist as opposed to psychiatrist on purpose for the mere fact that she believes her husband being a surgeon is validated in the medical field than psychiatry. Her bravado is embarrassing.

I agree. Classless is more like it and the accent...OMG!!!!! Stop it Kari, it's not cute and neither are you.
Good clean up job in the blog. However, you did come off snooty and condescending. Jumping into the conversation with Toya and Quad and calling Quad out for her behavior when you knew Toya was being messy about something that was none of her business. You two wanted a reaction and you got it and now she's uncouth? This was an episode of Mean Girls last night, but of course that was never your itent...now was it?
You are refreshing. Quad is strange,verrrry strange. She needs her Dr. Husband o give her a shot...of self-confidence. Many people have a hard time trying to ferret out the difference between those two titles. Lay people Especially. However, if you believe you are your title it obviously means a lot. Prefer kind ,decent people above all.
No people don't get the two mixed up. If Kari did get it mixed up then fine but when she said she had a smug look on her face knowing full and well the difference
I don't think you tried to insult Quads husband - it's an easy mistake to make - I am impressed by anyone who works hard to educate themselves to earn a higher degree -its obvious that the Drs are very educated and respected but it seems that Quad is so tied up with the "titles" of trying to equal herself to the other wives by using her husbands hard work and education to try and fit in ! It sad - it's to bad that she can't exist on her own accomplishments.
Birdie99 I disagree. Kari was corrected several times that Dr. Greg was a psychiatrist not a psychologist. She rolled her eyes almost every time. She said psychologist as a dig. Did you not see her facial mannerisms? And Quad knew exactly where Kari was coming from. Kari was implying that her husband being a surgeon had more legitimacy in the field of medicine compared to the field of psychiatry. Quad was simply stating schools that are held in high regards. Most Americans could never get into / graduate from. Highly competitive schools. Quad wasn't hung up on titles like Kari clearly is. She had to go from defending her marriage to clearly defending her husband's chosen field. Kari is as transparent as her injections whether verbal or the ones she has injected into her own face. FYI: I'm all about botox and fillers, but it doesn't hide / mask the massive amount of BS being exuded in Kari's blog.
Kari knew exactly what she doing and saying the whole time I am not buying that she simply made a mistake yes Quad is well educated maybe Kari should take some lessons from Quad so she can educated and not a fool. Quad doesn't care about titles it's clear that Kari is so caught up in being called a doctors wife that she has lost touch with the real world. A lot of people would be insulted if you get what their job is Quad husband worked hard to get where he is and in a quick second Kari tried to take it away from him. Kari needs to educate herself about someone if you are going to go in a talk about them
