Simone Whitmore

Dr. Simone reflects on being a blonde, fertility, Toya uninviting Mariah, and on Rihanna.

on Apr 26, 20130

The doctor is in and exhausted from a long week!

I have been busy this week, and when I say busy, I mean I have had multiple deliveries, early morning surgeries, and a full schedule of patients this week.

I did get a chance to go to the Rihanna concert and had a great time meeting some fans of Married to Medicine! The concert was average and I definitely left way before the show was over.

I really had to convince my boys to go to the Spookie Oookie party, because they are older than Toya's boys and most of the kids at the party. It was fun to have a night out as a blonde and I enjoyed seeing my son Miles in his doctor costume. You barely saw Michael, but he was dressed as the evil jester. Thinking about his costume, I guess it was a good idea not to show him much. LOL.

I wasn't surprised Toya cut Mariah from the guest list. I ended up having to leave the party to take my boys trick or treating with their friends. Cecil came to the party as well because we had to divide and conquer to get the boys to different neighborhoods.

Also - Your comments on Watch What Happens is alarming. You believe that it is okay for teenage girls to have access to the next day pill without needing parental permission? Thats pretty irresponsible of you. You should be encouraging teen age girls to have a close relationship with their mothers, aunts, grandmothers, etc regarding something like this that could impact their lives. Teenage girls need to have dialect with their mothers regarding sexual matters period.

I laughed when you said to your son when he was doing homework...."you just want your mother to leave you alone?" Lol Such typical conversation w a pre-teen.

Dr. Simone I do love you because you remind me of my favorite aunt!  But please before you form allegiances with the ladies know the whole story behind the situation.  I really think that you should have not coddled Toya in her messiness letting her think that it's ok to speak about someones child.  Please Dr. Simone stay above all of that and be the WONDERFUL person that we see that you are!  And please don't support Kari with her lies, she's trying to be relevant and she's just not!

I love Dr. Simone and Dr. Jackie on this show.  You two bring a sense of reason among the other ladies, but I must say I feel Dr. Simone chose sides the night of the brawl.  Now, you are a Dr. and it's your job to take care of the hurt and injured, but did you even think to call Mariah to see how she was doing or to get her side of the story?  Seems like you fell for Toya's phony tears in the restroom.  Toya should not have approached Mariah at the party that is something that should have been discussed at another time and it looked like Toya threw the glass at her first.

Love Love Love you Doc Simone! Your lesbian patient was out of line even considering going "old school". If  IVF is out of her price range she should have considered adoption as an alternatve. Did she want to be a mom or just be pregnant, Im confused. I think above all she probably needed some counseling sessions with Quads husband LOL! A lot of these women in lesbian relationships are bisexual but chose women as partners because the alternative lifestyle is so prevelant especially in Atlanta. Any who, I would love to see more of you and Dr Jackie you guys rock!

I've read lots of posting and comments and I think people are missing one point. Dr. Simone was taped throughout the entirety of the party making snide comments about Mariah. Antagonizing Mariah's guest with information concerning her lateness.  Going around telling them, they should tell her about herself. Who does that? Especially not a friend.  And that's the point, all of them have self-serving reasons for being on this show and Simone, doctor or not, Spelman graduate or not, is like any other messy person. Education, is not a pre-requisite for common sense.  So I wasn't surprise with her taking Toya's "side", because they both spent the evening making snide remarks about Mariah.  

 

Sadly, they all were quite wrong in their approach and opinions of one another.  Toya could have stayed away from Mariah (even though she would have found another reason to have an issue with her). Mariah could have walked away from Toya. Simone could have shut her mouth and minded her business.  Jackie could stay neutral and tried to sit with everyone or each person individually.  Kari, well, please....Kari made the scene more dramatic than it needed to be especially with the police on hand and dismissing Mariah/Ayden from her (their) party and spending little to no money on the event.    

 

Their education, money, status, occupations have nothing to do with emotionally charged human reactions.  These shows remind the rest of us that indeed, we're all subject to falling short.

I'm curious why you & Dr. Jackie feel the need to wear heels to work? I would choose comfort over fashion. I was appalled @ you being friends with ''Mariah' so long & not lending a helping hand to see her & express her side was real curious. It was like this whole party was set up by YOU, 'Kari.' Tacky ''Toya, 'jackie. Something just not adding up! You heard Ms. Lucy bickering w / Toya.she kept saying 'You best 2'. You played ur part ' She Late' like yall knew it was going 2 be a fight. Here come Fake barbie telling T. Toya throw 'Mariah in the pool. Don't count Quad, 'Mariah out they are coming for yall.

Simone, you talk about delivering babies but I think you need to be delivered from your evil deeds.  9 years of friendship and you're the first one to through your friend under bus, and you haven't even called or spoken to her yet.  What can of friend are you? I'm confused.  Notice how I called you by your first name, I didn't put the Dr. in front of it, because you're not looking too good on TV right now. You just as shady as Toya and Kari and in my book, that's not very respectable, sorry.

Dr. Simone - I can't get enough of you. Love, love, love the way you keep Dr. Jackie in control. If you were not on the show, Dr. Jackie would make boring tv. Also, I love your communication style. You are so smooth. Go girl! Can't get enough of Dr. Simone. Show me more...show me more!

Dr Simone, you are a Spelman Sister and that puts you way above this kind of show.  Please rethink your decision to participate and do not join if there is another season.  This show is just tacky tacky.  Period.

I so agreed with judy@london.... Simone get "REAL." There's no way Mariah is such a friend for 9 years, and you don't know what to say. I'm no doctor, but I'm not dumb either. You took Toya's side, as well as the other "GOOD" doctor. Be honest enough to say that you both were had by Toya's innocent bullcrap. That woman is as shady as a 100 year oak tree. Well since you don't know what to say to Mariah and you are talking to Toya, tell Toya to close her "lily bush."

So far, I think you're my favorite cast member but you need to acknowledge that you unfairly took sides, with Toya, after the fight. Perhaps, you were neutral when you helped Toya regain composer after the fight and you might have been a innocent guest at Jackie's dinner party that purposefully excluded Mariah (AND QUAD) .... But, you cannot justify going to a party, at Toya house, before you've attempted to talk to your friend of 9 years??!! OWN IT! You have been biased!

judy@london

Please stop saying(in your interviews)that you haven't talked to Mariah yet because "you don't know what to say".You were friends with her for nine years!How about"Mariah,as a friend I want to support you,but I need more information.What happened between you and Toya that night?,I've heard Toya's side of the story,now I need to hear yours." See how easy that is?Why don't you try it and stop with the lame excuses.

Thank God for Tito, I fast forward through the party, can't stand watching Toya and her husband but watched you interact with your staff and all I can say is why do you have the slave, master mentality towards your employees?  So sad.  This show is getting hard to watch except for Mariah and Quad.  They are far from perfect but fun to watch.  You try too hard to be funny but it comes off too sarcastic and your nasty mouth is unbecoming to a lady.

So let me get this straight you are not picking sides but you have talked to Toya since the fight at Kari's house but you have not talked to Mariah I believe you have picked sides the night at the party you picked Toya's side. Every episode you keep showing that you love drama it's not cute that you call yourself at the office b....more classless and please talk to your staff better just because you are the boss doesn't mean you talk to them however just becaue you are the boss

Your a boss and display poor qualities, no leadership it seems. You handle your staff quite poorly and use lack of sleep for bad behaviour. Your referring to someone  your son may be interested in as a b@##  is in bad taste. Hopefully the show will be light in that brain of yours.

Please take this embarrassing show off the air! It is an absolute disgrace to women.

I have to agree with most of the comments here - I was surprised when you took sides with Toya without even hearing and understanding Mariah side.

Toys started THAT FIGHT , she walked over to Mariah's space and stated talking about her mum ( very inappropiate) she then  had the nerves to pull Mariahs hair and throw a glass at her.,,

the fight was very distasteful , inappropiate  and may I say embarrasing.

I certainly understand why Kari is upset with Maria (as Maria is more classy and glamarous) but I don't understand why on earth  you did not hear both side of the story (or better yet watch the tapes) then come to a conclusion.

Kari is very condenscending and tacky when it comes to the other housewives, she honestly think that she is on a pedastal and the others is somewhere on a bench, she need to get real as MOST viewers cannot stand her.

I think that you and Dr. Jackie are good role models for young woman.  Just don't be quick to judge until you get all the facts.

I loved watching the scene where you asked the client with the fertility issue if she may be having second thoughts about her sexuality and men.  The client giggles and Dr. W. takes a long pause and delivers "I'm not laughing!"  Hysterical. 

 

Love her for it because it really became too hard to continue to watch Toya act the victim.  Mariah seemed so hurt.  She seemed disassociated and engulfed in grief.  It was too much, It was as if she was having an out of body experience and she could not absorb the betrayal.

I am so amazed that all of you ignoring the elephant in the room. Toy'a husband called your friend a bitch! Is that acceptable? Will you really continue to straddle the fence and not stand up for what's right yet again? I think that fact that you did not even acknowledge it says an enormous amount about the character you lack. Truly saddened

You may have the medical training that makes you a doctor but you don't exhibit the kindness and compassion of most doctors.  You tend to instigate A LOT until Jackie is around then you appear to take the high road.  You are condescending to your staff and then you quickly tried to explain it away.  Dr. Simone get real!

you say you are not picking sides..well it is obvious that you picked Toya's side. Did you even call Mariah to hear her side of thinks?

Dr. Whitmore you seem to be a very fair person and very caring and kind.  I was very surprised to see you side with Toya.  PLEASE lead by example.  Accepting that you made a mistake and that you should have reached out to Mariah even though you were disappointed in her is the way to go.  Go Dr. Simon!

You are quite the fool for supporting a snake like Toya. Guilty by association since she threw the glass at Maria's face  after tormenting her family with venom involving a child's secrets! How disgusting! Get your facts straight and do what is right!

@Sandy763 You do not know it all. Dr. Simone knows exactly what's she's doing on this show. Just b/c you are a college graduate and have a medical degree does not mean you can't be on this show. Just as the other viewers said, just b/c Quad has a big mouth and does nothing all day and so does Mariah that does not mean that it's a bad reflection on Dr. Simone. We need to see other perspectives on life and this perspective happens to get in to the life of real medical doctors. Whoo Hoo Bravo Tv and Dr. Simone!!

 @Sandy763 It isn't that the show is Tacky I believe that some of the woman are messy.  But if they weren't how many of us would watch? Simone is a doctor but she is also human and a woman. She most likely has student loans to pay off private school pay for and she must keep up with her lifestyle.  She joined for a reason and it wasn't to uplift the African American community.  Well that's MHO anyway

 LOL about the "lily bush"!Also,why does the good doctor find it necessary to "read"Rihanna's concert?! I'm liking this chick less and less every time she opens her mouth.

 If you have a problem w/ the show?Turn the channel? I enjoy the show? After I'm done watching, I'm not embarass or disgrace b/c it is reality,& does'nt represent my character in anyway. There are many things that are 'Disgrace' to women. Rape, assault,dishonesty.

 I agree, everyone is acting like nothing was said.  I just as bad if not worse as the fight.  HE should apologize to Mariah and his wife, his mother; all women.  This a horrible.  But they throw bad words around on these shows like nothing.

 @TexasGyal  @Drsoutherbella exactly and i dont get how you been so called friends with someone for 8 years and dont pick up the phone and call them and ask them are they ok?! i mean she had a wine glass threw in her face that could have hurt her eyes or face..which im sure toya meant to do because she is jealous, no friend of mine would do that to me nor would they ignore me and not call me. attention doctor, mariah dont need you or your friendship, you aint never got to call , she good , trust me! you are the one that could use deep prayer, something is really wrong with you mentally! i wouldn't trust you to be my doctor if you were the last one on earth! oh and another thing, mariah dont owe you anything, not even an "explanation" of what happ, you were there you saw it yourself and chose sides!

Actually, I do know a few doctors (male & female).  Simone stated she has compassion and she's always ready to render care.  My question is where was all this compassion for BOTH Toya & Mariah.
