A strong marriage is built upon a foundation of many things including God, love, trust, acceptance, and open communication. Despite Duncan's absurd divorce predictions based on my lapse in judgment last week, the bond between Aydin and I will always remain in tact!
I appreciate the fact that we keep it real with one another and hold each other accountable, good or bad, because it doesn't change the level of love, support, and respect that we share. Yaaass, I love my babe and he definitely loves me! #IncredibleHuQ's
This week was a tough one. I had to take some time to gather my thoughts and think of the impact of my actions. It was a good opportunity to truly reflect on my relationships with some of the ladies.
I appreciate Quad's friendship and loyalty through the good, bad, and ugly. I'm not going to pretend that I wasn't hurt Dr. Jackie invited all the ladies to her home except for me and Quad. I suppose Quad's crime is that she's my friend. And I don't understand why Dr. Simone made a rush to judgment without hearing my side, considering that her very profession has taught her to examine all of the facts before drawing a final conclusion. Not to mention our nine-year family history.
I am confused by your statements. I never saw any behavior that the Lord would condone in your actions or thoughts. You certainly are showing another side of Atlanta, a bitter angry and jealous side that really should stay hidden. While I feel sad you have to address the adoption issue before you feel your child is ready, you own a part of this in sharing a "family" secret. "Family secrets" are just that, for the FAMILY. It's a hard lesson to learn. Being adoptive is a wonderful thing but if your views on it (which come across like shame) are sensed by your child
it will have a long and lasting effect. Seek help professionally before broaching this issue. I do wish you well in this matter.
Has everyone forgotten that it was TOYA who approached Mariah at the party - asking her questions about her Mother's behavior???? It's almost as if there's selective memory here - people posting as if Mariah just went after this girl at the party. She appeared to have been trying to avoid her altogether. I can't say that to fight was the right thing, and yet when you're dealing with a confrontational, fake, manipulative, gossip-mongering reacher like Toya, it could be a challenge. Toya is manipulative, divisive, deceptive, disruptive ... and I really am unclear as to why it's not more clearly seen. It always amazes me how the person crying gets the benefit of sympathy, EVEN when they are the perpetrator. She played everyone there and made Mariah look like the aggressor, which simply was not true. Kari ... REALLY? So not relevant!
@Sunsmilewoman So are you saying that Toya had it coming because she approached Mariah to ask why her mother was being mean to her? Are you saying that someone asking a question can be viewed as an act of aggression? Either you have the world all wrong because you were poorly raised or you have the world all wrong because you skipped your meds. In any event, you have the world all wrong.
You continue to be a bad example of a "doctor's wife." You seem to throw it in everyone's face as if it makes you special. My husband is an ER doctor as well and I would never introduce myself as a doctor's wife. Strange that you want to come across as a strong woman, yet the only identity you go by is "a doctor's wife." You are obviously uneducated which is proven by the incredible amount of grammar and spelling errors on your web site. I won't even get into how insulting you we're to adoptive parents tonight. Finally, my husband is a successful, sought-after ER physician and I know how much money he makes. I find your portrayal of wealth to be hilarious. I guess you feel rich when you come from....
Mariah, please Suga take the high road from this day forward! You and Quad are my absolute favorites on the show. But I really want you to stop make Toya relevant in your life honey she is trying to make a name for herself and shes like one of the crabs in the barrel, shes trying to pull you down, to stand on your head in order to make a name for her foolish self. Also, please stop giving Kari anymore of your time. Kari is prejudice, how can you not see this?
Mariah, I love you and your family but please know who your real friends are and don't share anything that you do not want to see the light of day.
Toya needs to apologize to Ms. Mariah, point blank. I know the show is edited, and not all is shown on tv, but the idea that you trusted her with your "family secret", does not mean discuss with any and everyone... hairdressers included. She plays the victim and a "hood chick"? hmm...lol
Toya needs to shift her focus! First by begging the network to help update her look/wardrobe/HAIR!!!
Toya is not on any of you other ladies level. Toya is a "reacher" She is clearly trying to get up to where you are.
Don't back down!!!
My question to you is since your daughter isn't your husbands biological child are you saying he is incapable of having the same feelings for her, then he does his biological children?! Because You told Dr. Jackie that if you haven't birthed the child its not the same?!
Wow for you to say that an adoptive mother does not feel as protective of their children as an birth mom is a travesty.
OH yeah ... Mariah, that was a horrible comment. I think highly of you overall, but as an adopted person, I can't imagine my Mom caring for anyone any more than she did us. She's a phenomenal Mom! As you don't have any adopted children, you really can't speak on how an adoptive Mother feels about her adoped children. Right? That was bad; you should take it back, actually.
I have been married 33 years to a doctor, wordofadvise, doctor wives are not special. Also, keep your children out of the drama.
For you to assert that your concern for your child is what caused the ratchetness--run-amok with Toya and then turn around and have that very same child accost Toya about some silly party speaks to your poor upbringing and your perpetuation of the same. It was MORTIFYING to see Lauren, at the urging of her mother, walk up to a grown woman and ask why she was not invited, or uninvited (as if that makes a difference) to some silly party. God help those children to not grow up to be ghetto despite your best efforts to make them thusly. You may have arrived, but you couldn't manage to bring any class along for the ride.
IAmCassie I agree I cringed as I watched that poor child be a pawn in Mariah's revenge. Toya took the high road and handled it well. I'm curious how Ayden felt viewing this behavior. I assume Mariah's mother would be proud of this behavior. Mariah unfortunately models her behavior after her mom who appears to be an angry hostile volatile women. Mariah's behavior will be the cause of this in her own children if she doesn't change her parenting. They will grow up feeling "greater than" but "lesser than" within. Break the cycle now.
Why is your daughter's not being your husband's biological child a "family secret"? Not that I ever thought much of Mariah in the first place but she proved what she's really about with that statement..."Fake appearance"
saintisinno, it really is none of your business why she kept it a secret. WOW are you serious with that question.??
Mariah you were not wrong and if these Blind Bitches cant see that, O well!!! She came looking for a fight and now playing the victim. She touched you hair first!!! She is a LIAR!!! She is the scum of the earth for gossiping about your child and a family secret.
Mariah, It seems to me that is all about Queen Bee and keeping score, You are very child like and I think your very unhappy inside with all you have your jelous of anyone who is truley happy inside with or without all that your life style gives you, I see a very mean side to oyu GROW UP!!!! SCHOOL GIRL
Why couldn’t you have just pulled Toya aside or called her to have a conversation about what she said about your daughter? You just got angry and talked about it to everyone else but Toya. That is what upsets me about these reality shows. You women show your ass by causing unnecessary drama when all you had to do was to have a mature conversation (the way intelligent, mature adults do or should do). These reality shows clearly displays that money does not buy you class. And you need to talk with your mom. She had no business getting involved and physically hitting Toya over the head during your hair pulling contest. The apple does not fall far from the tree.
Being a doctor's wife as Kari acts is not being Michelle Obama. We are all human. I am married to a doctor and it's no special society by any means. Kari is a stupid bitch and wants fame is all. If they had all what she acted like they had, why does she have to go on national tv to prove it? Don't let anyone or anybody get to you at all.
Mariah you really need to "Get yo life" for real.... You and especially your mom acted completely disgusting at YOUR husbands party. It's your mothers fault you got a beat down cause she started the REDICULOUS petty cat fight....
Mariah, You don't have an ounce of class and your husband is crazy to stay with you because you don't know how to behave in public!
@withak her husband appears to be without a backbone. I would imagine that his wife's behavior would affect his professional reputation. If you would make such a bad decision in your personal life, you would use the same judgement in your professional life.
withak who are you to judge really? Adin has more class than Toya's husband eugene does. If anyone doesn't know how to behave in public, it's Toya. NOT Mariah.
joy2daworld Funny that you would chastise other posts for being judgmental, when you are pretty judgmental yourself.
Mariah and her mother have no class!!! What a way to act at a party for your husband and being held at someone's house,No Class!!!! Or respect!!!!! I'm sure the medical profession of Atlanta would love for her to disappear, she's a disgrace!!
For real? Easy to say after the way you and your moms acted at the party. The only place you could go is up.
The way you threw your daughter at Toya was disgusting and showed your lack of character. You take no responsibility for your actions and call yourself a queen. Now that I know you're the producer I have decided not to watch it. Money really didn't buy you class!!
money can not by class,Mariah has proven that in a big way!!! Queen Bee??? I don't think so!!!
I do not see Mariah taking responsibility like the other blog said. This blog is full of sarcasm and pointing the finger at someone who had nothing to do with Mariah's horrific Actions. You came to a party two hours late after you drove around in the limo getting drunk!! My honest feelings are that you have not come to terms with your past. I think you keep saying "yaaaas, I have arrived" because you are trying to convince everyone that you are something because you married a rich doctor. Having money does not give you class. The night of the party proved that about you. You and your mother brought out some serious ghetto. Having money hasn't changed who you are.
The truth is that I do not think you are worried about your child. You are worried about how you will look to other people will see you if they knew about your past. There is no reason to be ashamed of where you have come from. When I was 28 I was single and poor. I moved to NC with an old subaru that overheated at traffic lights because the coolng fan was broke. I picked up at 7 months pregnant with $20 in my pocket. I was willing to do whatever it took to keep my daughter. She was a gift from God, no matter how it happened. No matter what I owned or didn't own. No matter who the father was (which wasn't good)
When my daughter was 5 she was looking at my wedding pictures and she asked me a question. She didn't know anything about the fact that my huisband was not her father. She said "mommy, I thought you were supposed to get married first and then have the baby". I had to explain to her what her little mind could handle. I explained that she had three Daddy's so she was lucky. I told her she had one person she had never met, Jesus and the daddy she has now. There will be a time to talk to your child Mariah, and the best thing to do is be honest.
What I am saying is that I understand what you must have gone through. But, unlike you I am proud of myself that I made it through and I am not ashamed about where I have come from. I was alone and had to make it on my own, Welfare and all!!! My daughter is 21 and well worth what seemed like poor choices 21 years ago.
So, If I were you I would start being REAL!! Be real about where you have come from. Be honest with your children and be honest with your friends. Also, now that you have CHOSEN to be on a reality show you are going to have to accept that you will no longer have secrets.The best thing to do with your children is to be honest and tell them the truth before they are old enought to get on twitter and have to find out things about their mother.
I think your reputation can be redeemable if you don't do FAKE like Adrienne Maloof from BH house wives. Learn something from that. Hiding is never the way to go. Because when people do find out truth before you say it, things will only get worse for YOU.
You are very immature. Grow up. Act like an ADULT. You just seem soo angry all the time. Look how blessed you are. And the really sad part is you don't even see it.
alliegirl0407 why don't you tell Toya to grow up? You actually think that her actions against Mariah were Mature? Well think again.
Mariah them b*tches is dead wrong all of them even Dr. Jackie, however I'm gonna say this please put your big girl panties on and handle business and stop calling yourself the queen b that is why you became a target. They know you are the nucleus of the show they all hate that they wanted to surround them. accept that they are jealous and move on they ride the fact that you are from the ghetto every chance they get that is so distasteful, your story is for you to tell, how dare they. but honey stop being extra. i like the extra on Quad she's legit crazy and I like it.
pyin TXGlamChick She meant " Do not touch someone's hair if you're not ready to fight".
I agree, Mariah flipped Toya's hair and it escalated from there.
If you don't understand it, then it isn't for you. The condescending snide remarks are sickening.
Mariah, I really do like you. I think you are real and down to earth and I also believe that you are a strong woman with a good sense of family. One thing I must say is that I was very disappointed that you used Lauren to question Toya about the Spooky party. You really should not involve your child in that mess. I don't even understand why you even wanted to attend that party anyway, after the fight and particularly after what Toya said about her paternity. I also felt that you were kinda overbearing at Quad's doggie party, without Quad that could have escalated into another contentious situation. It would not have been Toya's fault this time, you were the one trying to communicate with her. I am proud of you and your husband for the way you handled yourself after the fight, you were again real and admitted your bad judgement and I believe your husband showed how disappointed he was without abandoning or disrespecting you. I only wish you could have thought about him before allowing Toya to lure you into that fight. The fight was Toya's fault. Yes, you could have exercised restraint and walked away, but Toya is insecure, devious and evil. She started it. I'm truly surprised that the other women can't see that. Very strange actually! Their actions should give you something to consider......yes.....be sensible, every friend is not a friend. Go figure! Good luck Mariah! Keep your head up and on, exercise restraint. I'm rooting for you!
Lovemy3babies You are totally correct. I agree with everything you said. I was disappointed she asked her daughter to ask Toya why she did not invite them. You should have talked to your children about it,without getting too deep. Keep the drama out, and be real adult about everything you do, especially when it involves the children.
Lovemy3babies I think she was looking to start something with Toya. But instead, she let her anger seep and boil within her. You could see her anger seeping out. She should've put her mother in her place and handle the situation somewhere else besides the party.
Also you shouldn't flip anyone's hair when your mad.... It' escalated from there.
Just my opinion.
Mariah forget scary Kari, she never was your friend from the beginning. Pay your half regardless if she kicked you and your husband out. You've learned that you can't be her friend.
As for Toya.. that was funny when you was whupping that behind but your Mom did start it.
Anyhoo love you and Quad girl... do youtr thang
It would have beena equle fight IF Mariah would have been the only 1 fighting with Toya but at times it 3 to 1
Three things, walk away from crazy, NEVER put your child in the middle. keep your head up we all fall short !!!
Mariah, I think that you were provoked when Toya kept running her mouth about your child. Anyone would be angry about that, yet you should never trust anyone outside your family with such information. The fight was mostly on Toya coming up to someone after having talked about their daughter saying something else about your mom. Also, maybe you should practice not putting your child in the adults mess, keeping quiet when you are among enemies as well. The enemy is trying to break up your good marriage by using you to react to everything negative. Think about what the old song says, backstabbers smile in your face while all the time trying to take your place. Toya is playing the victim role very well, all along trying to climb up the social ladder. Mariah, pay attention to what is going on around you more and stop talking to your husband about Ms. Thang! It only reminds him of what went down at his party and makes him angry. Keep your head up!
@rosepedal22 I can't believe you actually condone Pariah's resulting in physically fighting with another woman at a black-tie affair which she totally crapped on from the jump! Just makes me wonder what day and age we are in.
Mariah... I still love ya. BUT...that stunt you pulled with Lauren...telling her to ask Toya why she was un-invited to the party...was just AWFUL! Let's leave the kids out of this. You know good & well why that girl un-invited your family to the party. I don't see why you would want to go after the b-day anyway.
Mariah , we the viewers know that you are a classy and real woman, unlike Toya and Kari, and I agree with you Kari is ALWAYS CONDESENDING towards the other wives , was very proud when Quad "told her off" , I don't know what she thinks in her "crazy head" but she is very snobbish and irritating to watch.
Child rise above this, pick up your head and move on , Toya "provoked" this entire situation (if you ask me she should NOT be on the _ TACKY TOYA) I would say you just have ignored Toya totally but she kept Pushing and pushing, anyway I think you are beautiful and classy, so just MOVE ON.
Love the friendship with Quad, she is a loyal friend
