Simone Whitmore

Dr. Simone Whitmore looks back on the Lemon Squeeze.

on May 10, 20130

 

I would like to start my conversation with a huge thank you for all of the well-wishes and encouragement on my appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. Jackie and I had a great time with Andy. I look forward to my next opportunity to make another house call on the Clubhouse. I hope during my next visit, Andy is off the wagon and will have a cocktail with me.

Speaking of drinks, vodka, and wine, I would like to address a couple of points based on what we have witnessed on the show. I love to have a drink or two when I am not on call and vodka is my drink of choice. As most of you know, I can get loud when I am talking, and it happens even when I’m not drinking.  

Let’s count the drinks in all of the episodes combined and see who is "very busy" with drinks. I have tried to stay above the fray when it comes to the other women, but I am getting too many comments from my friends, family, and patients to ignore this one.  

Let's talk about Messyville and Mrs. Quad! She wants to know why I let Jackie belittle me. The answer is simple. Neither Jackie nor anyone else can belittle me, because I know my worth and am quite confident in myself and all that I have accomplished. Small jokes and jabs don't affect me. If you (Mrs. Quad) are going to name characters, make sure you do your homework. It isn't Uncle Woody, it is Woodrow who is married to Aunt Ester on Sanford and Son, so "check your email." And based on Quad's Tipsy Boots on the wine tour and on the bus, Woodrow might be more in line with her lane. However, it is a free country and a wine tour, so do what you have to do and put your "two cents on your tab." Mrs. Quad has so much criticism about everyone on the show including me, but when Mariah calls a spade a spade (calling Chloe and Cari dogs, blaming Quad for ruining her party, saying Quad “can’t take the ghetto out of the girl”), we hear crickets...  I’m just saying!

I know you said you and Mariah were friends, but your action would say something other than that.  What kind of friend would laugh when her friend is being called names? What type of friend would immediately find fault with her friend in an altercation w/out talking to her first? What type of friend would not reach out to squash any tension they may have? I was prepared to like you, but now not so sure.  As far as Quad, you seem to talk down to her in most scenes or as if you're her mother.  I do like the interaction between you and Dr. Jackie and your family. But not sure about your friendship ability.

Now that the season is over.  Do you think there will be a 2nd season of

"Married To Medicine"? And will you participate?  I really believe that there is some level of forgiveness, but the pain and distrust is still there.  We as individuals all process things differently.  Some forgive and move on rather quickly than others, and I understand that and others have to know that.  We are not clones of each other.  For example:  If someone gets hit by one brick and another get hit by two bricks who will feel the most pain?  The hurt is going to linger depending on the person.

Dr. Simone, you said Miriah's and Kari's problems arent as deep as her and Toya's! I don't know what to say about you! You sat at her party and laughed when she called Mirah "Chuckie" an evil doll! PLEASE!!!!! I want Miriah to kick Kari and Toya off the show! she needs to take the trash out!!! They are TRASH! Watch the company you keep!

Dr. Simone, I love you. As a nurse I would probably love working in your office just by your personality. I do wonder though, How did you feel when you saw the show and saw that Toya flipped Mariah's hair first, told something that was told to her in confidence about her child, and threw the drink at Mariah first? Did it change your view of Toys since you flocked to her side instead of Mariah's.

Simone I am disappointed in you, as a doctor i guess I expected you to show the same tact and elegance as Dr. Jackie, but you have proven as you just wrote, you can't take the ghetto out of the girl. You are loud and belligerent at all times. You drink way more than what a doctor who is on call most times should. i don't respect the way you handled the situation with your nephew, putting him out after he was no more use to you. I could not respect you as a doctor. the  rapport you have with your patients is completely unprofessional . Asking an openly lesbian patient if she wanted some penis is not only tactless it disrespectful. You are not a therapist and that was not your place. I'm think the real reason you two-faced Mariah and backed up Toya is that you are jealous of the closeness that Mariah and Quad have. You are a disappointment.

Please give Dr. Simone and Dr. Jackie their own show so that they don't have to deal with these moron "doctors' wives"  and so that I don't have to endure them and their ghetto talk etc.....in order to watch the actual doctors. Marrying a doctor is not an "accomplishment" as these women seem to think. The wives are brutal but Dr. Simone and Dr. Jackie are so entertaining!

You are an absolute two-faced educated woman who seemingly looks like you can not function without the assistant of some "Vodka" You are not @iluvmariah or @AbsolutelyQuad  friend and it is apparent. I know  you Toya and Kari are trying to destroy this woman because of what she has created and you need to be ashamed of yourself. Your husband is more of a human being and a friend to Mariah then you seem to be.

Maybe you need to re-read your words on the definition of apology. That you question Mariah's and her husbands "acceptance" of an apology is a true reflection of your own insincerity in the apology you offered Mariah. You need to look up the definition of friendship and loyalty! Your behavior is suspect in representing yourself as a friend to Mariah and her family.

Simone, You are awesome! Love watching your time on the show. I laugh out loud. I am not a big drinker but maybe one day I will watch the second season with some vodka and have an even greater time and deal with the other nuts on this show. Don't change one bit.

Dr Simone I love you as well as Dr Jackie. You are the truth and I believe the ladies no better than to cross you because you will give them the business for real. Keep checking them and keep them in their place. You and Dr Jackie know who you are and the other ladies are trying to find who they want to be thru their husbands. At least Quad and Mariah because they are the only two that thinks they have it all together.  I have to give it to Quad she is always fly. SHe is also ugly, but if she wasn't so far up Mariah's tail and would change her nasty attitude she may would look kind of cute.  Keep keeping it real Dr Simone!

Simone, Why do you take side? Girl, you need to be neutral and keep out..If you don't have good to say don't say it.. At least Miss Jackie tried to get it sorted out to bring peace...You locked out Mariah and cling to Miss Snake Toya and in the end you had to apologized for your action...You should have known better and try to find out the motive and give a helping hand to both with encouraging words...You taught me that, profession don't make you be somebody, one cannot be trust-worthy or loyal...You have to look out for what you don't know about a person from the inside..These small things makes you know who they are....I believe that you boss your husband around and tell him what he can do in the house from what he cannot do..Not a man on his will....They all ghetto trying to able to live in the mansion that they cannot handle, it is not apart of them to be adjustable and humble...They fight for what they want from the day they were born; that instinct is still inside them ready to act out at anytime, at any place...It wasn't a good character you display on TV..Here is a word ,'When wisdom enters your heart, and knowledge is pleasant to  your soul, discretion will preserve you; understanding will keep you'...Until next time, Be humble......

I just love you! You are your authentic self. Mariah is so easily influenced by others. That's so sad. I don't think she will take ownership of releasing her FAMILY secret. It appears so many people knew Lauren was adopted. If this was not aired on TV this would be no big deal. I can't really tell how long ago this was told to the hairdresser. It appears it happened before this show even taped. I really hoped this show have another season. Good luck to you and your family.

Dr. Simone Whitmore, you are a grown woman and you could have went and helped someone else besides it being a kiddie play ground. And I didn't see were the other Dr. Jackie was trying to belittle you. You two are well educated and try to defuse issues...

I couldn't believe when I watched you and Dr.Jackie on WWHL,you're STILL trying to say you couldn't tell who started the fight?! Come on Dr.Simone,you KNOW Toya started that mess,why can't you just admit you was wrong for jumpin' on the Tacky Toya bandwagon so fast?You are the worst kind of friend.

Dr. Simone I respect you as a doctor in your profession, but you as a friend I don't feel you are that by any means. You are definitely one to throw a rock and hide your hand. And just a little advise....... I know what you do is your own business but you should tone it down with the vodka. It's not lady-like or funny that you broadcast your business in such a manner.

Simone you wanted to sit between Mariah and Quad so they wouldn't feed off of each others energy, yet you, Kari and Toya want to sit a laugh and make comments as if know one should respond...you definitely don't seem to be a friend to Mariah at all...because they won't follow Kari and kiss her ass then they are wrong....Team Mariah and Quad

HAVE A SEAT DR. PHONY SIMONEY! YOU NEED TO LAY OFF THE SAUCE!  I NOTICED AT THE EVENT WITH YOUR SORORITY SISTERS THEY WERE LOOKING AT YOU SIDEWAYS BECAUSE YOU WERE LOOKING AND ACTING LIKE A LUSH. WHEN YOU DRINK YOU TRY TO ACT LIKE MARIAH.

Dr. Simone - I like you as a person , you seem very fun and work hard and very much so deserve a cocktail or 3 after a hard days work BUT let's be very clear with that being said nobody is perfect and as a friend you fumbled the ball when it came to Mariah! As a friend of 9years and never seeing a side of her like that why didn't your friend instincts come into play and say," hey that's not my friend something is up let me check on her" but instead you went into the bathroom with Tacky T !!! No excuses she's a grown a** woman and your loyalty at that time was to Mariah not Toya!! You went on to invite Toya to your home and outings! No you didn't pick sides you jumped on the Toya wagon and rode it for 2 Weeks!!! And to continue to praise Kari is beyond me she thinks everyone is beneath her including you sweetheart!! And no ill intent when it came to Lauren?????? Girl please she wasn't talking bad about aydin or Lauren but it was gossiping about a child which is sick within itself!!! Let your next move be your best move!!! Please recognize real

Dr. Simone - Is this your only comback, "If you (Mrs. Quad) are going to name characters, make sure you do your homework. It isn't Uncle Woody, it is Woodrow who is married to Aunt Ester on Sanford and Son, so "check your email." .... If so, my dear, then you need to go back to "READ" school and learn a little bit from Nene Leakes. For 1, she was right to call the man Uncle Woody ... why? b/c he was the "UNCLE" and "Woody" is short for "Woodrow" even our President Woodrow Wilson was called Woody!!!... Laughable... Just accept that you are messy and stop drinking so much... DAYUM!!!

Dr. Simone , I love your attitude stay confident and I thought yours and Jackie's relationship was one of joking and fun so I would not worry about remarks from someone who never has anything nice to say except for herself. I have ten year old also and love the way you acted about your little boy's girlfriend.

I like your husband. Out of everyone, including you, he's had the best perspective about the fight.

Dr. Simone we all make mistakes! I'm glad you could admit yours and hope you and mariah can move forward! I'm not understanding how or why people think you took Toya' s side! You listened because she reached out but you told her she needed to take ownership of her actions! And what is wrong with you taking a few drinks? Please you are not hurting anyone! Too much water and juice are also not good for you so why are people finding issue with that?

rednfluffy

Dr. Simone I am a bit confused because I don't feel like you took sides but how you reacted on that bus was not you at all makes me wonder how you really are as a person so yes I am questioning your character. As a Doctor yourself you should not be involved with women like that unless that is the way you are ghetto hot mess like the others.

Dr.Simone your so funny ,but greatness .much love to you for the help you give to people .and you and Dr. Jackie have good bedside manners. well as for Mariah I could never  understand her side because I never could give birth to a child ,I was on her side for a minute ,but when she said that it hurt .It still hurts I had a lot of female problems and could never get pregnet you see I can't even spell it sometimes ,it makes me so sad when someone makes that comment and woman say it all the time to me ,just right out ,you will never understand love like that ,well maybe not but I have two lil boys my God children my neices kids that are like my own and there 3 houses down and have there own rooms at my home .I love them with everything god gave me in my heart to love ,so to you Mrs. Mariah you really need to watch what you say .your words hurt other people and you should understand sometime we speak without thinking .and shame fighting like that at a party .or fighting at all for that matter ,the show is great ,but we will no longer watch if theres any hands on fighting ,we have ladies night and watch it ,so much fun and of course we love drama ,but no hitting ......................God Bless oh and Happy mothers day to you all .

So glad you & Mariah talked. I must admit .. I was feeling a certain way about the way you handled the fight. It certainly appeared that you sided with Toya. Which is your right...but with you and Mariah's history I thought you should have reached out to her. Cecil is currently my favorite on the show. You know how to pick em'...good job!

You and Dr Jack are the only classy, real smart  2 people on the whole show, you guys give the balance to the insanity  from the rest of the cast.  that Quad woman and Mariahs mother GET TO GO!!!

Dr Simone, I was disappointed in your appearance on Watch What Whappens... You said that you didn't contact Mariah because she was not acting like the person you know, but you know Toya enough to take her side and continue to befriend her after that party... You know called your so-called friend up at anytime, but you had so much sympathy for toya and her victim playing that you invited her and her husband to your sorority outting.. Yes, you are fair weathered friend, and Quad is correct in her assessment of you. All of you took Toya's side, because she was the first one to come try to clear her name, which is a clear sign of guilty to me... I would have went to my friend the next day to see what was the matter... Two people were fighting that day not just one. You may have seen something different in Mariah, but it should not have stopped you from calling her up and seeing what was going on. After days and weeks of not talking to Mariah, we, the viewers, saw you have dinner with Toya, go to Toya's house for a party, invited Toya to your Sorority outing, etc... Not once did you say - oh let me call Mariah to see what happened... The only person who did that was QUAD!!! You can say whatever you want about QUAD, but she is definitely a REAL friend unlike you. Lastly, stop saying that kari said that she didn't kick Mariah and her family out. GO WATCH the damn Video again.. She said that she wanted everyone out of her house!!!! She even called the guard over to remove them from her house. They guard said in the video that the owner of this house wants you GONE!!! So, i am dumbfounded as to how you can continue to say that - kari did not kick them out but the security did b/c they were acting a fool... Watch the video again! Mariah was sitting on the couch when the security guard came and said the owner of the house wanted them out!! Please stop trying to defend yourself, because you are continuining to make yourself look silly. Lastly, you do always seem drunk on the show, perhaps, you need to learn how to hold your Vodka as you are always asking for a drink when you are around the ladies.

I think you have an amazing husband he and aydin but toya's husband and kari husband are they are messy Eugene called Mariah a bitch on a few episodes back and kari husband said aydin will leave Mariah I think the husbands should act like husbands and stay out you women buisness

What I find difficult to understand is you've known Mariah for quite some time but was so disappointed you didn't know what to say to her...but Toya you've known for a very short amount of time you ran to give support.  I'm so puzzled by that.  Your husband spoke w/wisdom and in kindness.  Big snaps to him...he SAW the hurt in Ayden and addressed it w/the men. Eugene is immature like his wife.  Hopefully all have learned from this...but somehow I doubt it.

You are such a fun party girl.  I like you when you drink.  You really like that Vodka.  I bet you could bring the house down any night of the week.  Love Ya!

I must of watched a different show because I never witnessed you, Toya or Toya's husband trying to throw Mariah under the bus. Everyone is entitled to their opinions and what Cecil gave is just his point of view, some points may have been in alignment with Toya's and her husband's and others may not. Only they know of their true intent, as a viewer watching, I don't think they did anything wrong. They were discussing what a great guy Mariah's husband was and the adoption came up, they said NOTHING negative about Mariah's daughter. Mariah and her family choose to sensationalize the innocent comment into something negative. I doubt Mariah's young daughter even watches this show as it is not a show for young children.

 

I am sure just as Mariah claims to be hurt by Toya's words, Toya is hurt that Mariah is attempting to paint her in such a vicious manner.

 

Quad is an insecure woman and can not hold a candle to you, do not even entertain her stupidity with a comment.

 

I am glad you had the opportunity to clear the air with Mariah. I never questioned your friendship because I felt you knew more about the situation than we the viewers. Mariah kept questioning your 9 year relationship and I felt in 9 years you saw the good, bad and ugly and there was more to the story than we saw.

 

I hope the ladies get it together because the show is much more enjoyable without all the high school drama but the previews for next week dims that hope. Mariah's mother is wicked, who would try to convince their daughter to not forgive?

Simone, first I want to say glad you made amends with Miriah, it showed how much of a woman you are. With that being said, you are a lucky woman to have Cecil, he is the voice of reason and seems to be the only male figure (along with Aydin) on the show. I was very impressed with him when he made the other men (I use that word lightly) see that Aydin was hurt! Clearly he doesn't think of Miriah's daughter as an adopted daughter! The other messy men supported their wives in the mess. Kari's husband, after bashing Miriah unjustifiably, voiced that Aydin was going to divorce Miriah, then he thought she should tuck her tail between her legs! A testimony to who he really is and Toya's Doughboy called her a b_t_h. My husband would have confronted him, but I applaud Aydin for not going there. Cecil, you are a true man, you didn't support the foolishness!

MelindaK.

You add a voice of reason with lightheartedness that I find very refreshing.  I just don't get it that people want to defend physical altercations and violence, no matter what the reason.  You only had seen one side of Mariah for nine years, and couldn't believe what happened when she was fighting, and were disappointed.  Understandable!  Cecil is a wonderfully calm man.  We can see from the previews of next week, that these women are not done with drama, and that is a shame!

 @Mstah

 I don't understand why we all watched the same show and nobody saw the same thing.  It's just like Toya said, the fact that Lauren was adopted was not a  secret.  If you noticed, there was not one surprised person when everyone found out what the fight was about.  Second, we all know what Toya and her husband said and where do all of you see so much maliciousness in that?  God gave us two ears and one mouth for a reason.  People need to stop feeding off of what other people say and listen sometimes.  You might learn something.  Dr. Simone I saw that you didn't take sides.  In fact, you stayed as far away from the drama as Dr. Jackie.  Lastly, Dr. Jackie made a great point: Just because we are friends doesn't mean I have to agree with everything you do.  Dr. Simone stood on the side of right which makes her one of the best friends a person can have.

I think Dr. Simone is between a rock and a hard place.  It is hard to take sides for she is friends with both.  For Simone did reached out to Toya first because of the dynamics of the situation.  Toya was there all alone and it was quite natural for Simone to do so.  No one saw how the fight actually got started, only the sound of glass breaking, Mariah and Toya going at each other. Neither Mariah nor Simone reached out to one another, for I think Mariah should have made the first move since she'd the one that got into the altercation with Toya.  Mariah made apologizes to her other guests why not Simone.  They have been friends the longest of all of them.  In any event I think they will get back on track.  The whole situation is crazy and shouldn't have got to that point.  I believe the players involved already have this perception of Mariah because of her personality.  I suggests she tone it down and stop drawing attention to herself.  So she won't receive negative reactions from others.  We as a society don't know how to accept others for where they are at in their lives.  People are funny that way.

 @OJMcLA  ITA with you~ I love it that she knows who she is and doesn't apologize for it.  I also agree with another poster on what I believe as the reason she was more hands on with Toya at the "fight party".  Toya although wrong as 2 left shoes was humbled, embarrassed and apologized.  We didn't see Mariah to that with anyone she spoke about it to Ayden's friends but I saw no apology to Kari or Duncan.   I love you Dr Simone!! I hope there is a second season.

 She is truly a horrible friend! I pray Mariah see how fake she is! I'm sorry how could they not see who started the fight. Its quite obvious se follows Jackie leads, she even looks at her before she speaks to make sure their in agreement. smh
