Dr. Simone apologizes for not calling Mariah and commends Andy on bring up the major points.

on May 25, 20130

The doctor is in and relieved.

I am truly relieved the Married to Medicine season has come to an end and we can finally have peace and healing in our lives, separately and eventually collectively.

As I watch the #Married2Med Reunion with you, I am wondering if we answered the many questions you had during the season. Since most of our season revolved around the issue of Mariah’s daughter''s adoption by Dr. Aydin becoming revealed by Toya, I might as well start this topic.

Toya’s husband, Dr. Eugene paid a compliment about Dr. Aydin for stepping up to the plate and being a real man/husband/father by taking in Mariah’s daughter as his very own. From this statement, the drama begins because we realize Mariah shared the information about her daughter’s adoption with Toya in confidence. Mariah alleges Toya also managed to share the information with several people, including her hair stylist. We all know when you tell one person something, it can become international news as people spread gossip and tell other folks’ business. Valuable lesson learned by Mariah and an unfortunate one as well. Toya continues to deny telling a soul other than Dr. Eugene.

Wow. I really have to say you are super shady. Your excuse for not talking to your friend after the fight was bullcrap. You chose to support toya period and wasn't woman enough to admit it. If I were mariah you'd definitely be out of my circle because you are disloyal and untrustworthy. Not feeling you at all.

I love you and love your style, You didn't really need to call. She put the whole issue on TV and kept it up all season through the reunion .....please. She looked like a fool with her Queen of Sheba headpiece and over talking everyone.

I was so disappointed with Simone when she reached out to Toya and throw Mariah to the curb.  No one saw it when Toya through a glass with wine at Mariah, that when Mariah hit Toya with her purse.  Toya went up to Mariah touching her hair and telling her she needed to talk to her mother. Then as they were walking Mariah started touching Toyas' hair before the fight broke out.  Mariah suppose to be friend Simone ran to Toya's defense she never once went to Mariah her friend and asked her what happen.  Toya played it off like Mariah attack her.  Simone next day went to a gathering given by Toya.  Once Toya sat that cognac out Simone was in love with her every since.  She became Toya best friend and Mariah became the hateful woman in Simone's eyes.  I can not understand why know one saw the jealousy that Toya and Kari held towards Mariah.  Toya is going to run her husband in to so much debt he is not going to know what hit him.  I really like Dr. Jackie she displayed so much class.  I also liked Quad I think she will grow into that woman and wife she is working on the class is there and the more she works on it the better she will become.  I hope she drops all that profanity she is to intelligent and don't need it. Toya is trash, ghetto, insecure and detroit hood.  What I see is not good and that husband who became a doctor all I see is trouble about to brew.  Drugs, alcohol and doctor's license do not mix.  Dr. Simone I see her becoming if not already an alcoholic she is differently on the borderline.  Mariah need to drop Simone, Kari and Toya and move on with her life.  Sorry, but Mariah mother is hood and sometimes although the love is there you have to back away.  Mother is not a good influence.  Mariah husband did not take her daughter in. He love and adopted her and she became his daughter.

You can play it any way you want after the show but during you were playing hardball on a losing team. You want to be neutral then you gotta walk the middle line and hear both sides fair n square. You can be funny but you got a mean streak, and I think that's what you most proud of.

Simone, Trust betrayed is hard to restore.  If you are going to apologize own all your part in the betrayal.  You treated Mariah like an acquaintance and Tacky Toya like a friend.  You need to study what true friendship looks like and behaves like.  True character is revealed in the tough times.   You revealed your true character when you toss away your "friend" of nine years for someone you just met.  However BRAVO for being woman enough to apologize.  Finally, sometimes just saying sorry is not enough.

  I was said sad.......why, I just expected a Dr's. behavior to be different ....I was said, I just hope you guys can be friends again. Dont let the friendship of you and Mariah had. And for the record you and Dr. Jackie did take TOYA's side. The only thing that was different between you and Dr. Jackie is she really tried not to talk about Mariah and Toya to one another, you did.

Simone,

 

I liked you because of your moral ethics.  However, you disappointed me in the end because Dr. Jackie had to save you.  You, better than any of the others, know that Toya's intent was not malicious and just because Mariah wants to convince herself of that lie to make her actions look better, you know that she isn't right.  It's like Dr. Jackie said, true friends don't agree with their friends when they are wrong, they stand firm and try to show the other person the error of their ways.  If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything.

Dr. Simone, you seem like a fun physician but Mariah didn't paint you as a bad friend, that's what was demonstrated on the show for everyone to see.  Don't be mad with Mariah for that. Eat a piece of humble pie.

Dr. Simone, there are many here that just won't get what the tears were about and I might not either but I think that after looking back at your own behavior towards Mariah and seeing the reaction of the viewers, you were probably disappointed in yourself and realized that you should have been a better friend.  It took a lot of guts to say you were sorry and to truly mean it in front of the whole world to see.  It truly changed my opinion of you (not that it matters to you).  I just wish for your own sake that you and Dr. Jackie would stop saying you didn't take Toya's side, it makes your words lose credibility with the viewers that saw it in your actions. Many of the post are really juvenile here when they say you were kissing up to Mariah, I didn't see that at all.  You are a strong woman and I have not seen you begging or Mariah's friendship at all.  Some people just don't know how to get over things maturely.  Gratitude towards Mariah for the great opportunity she gave all you women is awesome.  None of us would know any of you with out her and now many doors will open up for ALL of you.  It's one thing to call grown women the “B” word, but children??  Sorry had to throw that one in, hopefully you get the point and remove that word out of you vocabulary especially when it comes to young girls coming into an age where they are trying to define themselves in a positive way.

Unlike most people here, I'm team Simone.....to a point. I found you very sad having this need to kiss up to Mariah for her bad behavior. The woman acted a complete fool, showed up late, dissed her guest, dissed the host and had both her mom and herself beating on a woman at a party....and you're sorry for her?????? Dr. Please get some dignity back and put a period behind this and please stop begging for forgivness...she's not worth it.

What kind of a knucklehead goes on a reality tv show, discusses her husband adopting her daughter in front of a camera, then worries about who let the cat out of the bag?  This secret was going to come out as soon people started following the show, whether you liked it or not....but that's something that should have been thought of before being on the show.  A narcissist is incapable of that forethought, however.

 

Will you people please stop apologizing to that goofball?

You are so messy.  You were not a good friend to Mariah.  You did take Toya's side.  We all saw it.  Your attitude about Mariah was negative before you even knew why she and Toya were fighting.  You immediately went to aide Toya and never said a word to Mariah, so I can understand why you are so defensive about it, but you need to own it and move on and stop taking your feelings of guilt out on Mariah.  She forgave you and it was clear.  You came on the reunion with a chip on your shoulder and it's because you felt guilty about your appalling behavior toward your "friend".  I wouldn't trust you, personally.  But, that's just me.

I was very impressed with you on the re-union show and with your segments all season long.  If this show continues, I hope to see much more of you and your family in your natural habitat.  I absolutely love ALL the ladies except the two snakes.  Wishing you a very good summer.  I appreciate decent television viewing, which is what this show attempted to bring to us.  So refreshing.  I really appreciate the majority of the wives not buying into the ghetto drama one housewife tried to bring in and the complete ignoring of the other wife's attempt to be condescending to everyone.  Thanks for a GREAT SHOW.

Dr. Simone I was proud of you standing up to the bull. Move on with your family and get the hell of this show. It is damaging to your repurtation. You and Dr. Jackie are women of class. Why try to bring peope together that dont want to be together. Let them kick rocks

Simone I just finished watching Part 2 of the reunion.  First of all, I thought you looked beautiful.  From your hairstyle, your dress and your shoes, I just loved the look on you. Another thing that I loved was the interaction between you and Mariah during this episode in your quest for understanding and true forgiveness and how you both acknowledged that you still have a friend in one another. I really enjoyed seeing that and I actually thought it was the best part of Part 2.  Also, I wanted to say I think your husband is great. Out of all the husbands on the show, your husband and Mariah's husband are my favorites and I hope to see you all again for a second season.

Why did you spend the entire reunion show trying to get Mariah to like you? It was pretty pathetic! The entire reunion show was a joke! It was more - having to deal with Mariah and Quad acting like immature, spiteful, very deceiving, manipulative narcissistic egomaniacs! Let’s just name the show Mariah is the Greatest and if you don’t know that don’t worry she will tell you!  Please get a backbone Dr. Simone! Your behavior after the humiliating physical fight bet/ Mariah and Toya was fine! You did not have an obligation to call Mariah. Rather Mariah should have called everyone and apologized and explained herself!  What about Kari? She was totally humiliated and forgotten completely! Mariah treated her awful in the show and continued to do so at the reunion! What about her feelings? Mariah is not worthy of your devotion! Is it only because she produces the show? Do you really accept that she alone is the center of the medical community in Atlanta and taught all of you how to act! Seriously! And please stop the promotion of drinking! Not pretty and certainly not admirable at all!

Thank you for clarifying the "outing" of Mariah's daughter's adoption. That is exactly what the viewers saw, and I, for one, could never understand the outrage from Mariah. If something is that big of a secret...keep it a freeking secret!! You and Dr. Jackie are my faves! Classy, and honest.

I really think you represented yourself well on the show.  I wondered, however, if you ladies really believe you are on a higher plane because you are doctors and doctors' wives.  That part is rather funny, i.e., the constant statements that doctors' wives don't behave that way.  Let me share a tip with you all.  Lawyers, teachers, federal and state gov't workers, janitors, metermaids, church folk, and adults don't or shouldn't behave the way some of your castmates behaved on the show either.  But this season, your counterparts made that fact painfully clear.  But again, you (and Dr. Jackie) represented yourselves well.  Unfortunately, the drama is what makes reality tv, but it does make those involve look pretty stupid.

I agree with "duchess4".  Except for the LCBeotches part.  I don't think that it is called for.  But, I really believe that Mariah and Quad are certainly all full of themselves so much so that if they (M&Q) continue with this RH's franchise then the whole scene has some major problems.  I don't think that either Q or M actually can look past their own noses.  Mariah calls herself the Queen Bee. She's arrogant as all get out, just like Q.  The reunion was a complete fiasco.  These women talk about "shade" and M&Q do exactly that, scads of it. Then M's mom comes in and I swear those 3 are thick as thieves with this muck.

 

If this RH franchise comes back on the air with M&Q still on it, I won't even chance to watch it.  I sort of think that M&Q plus Phaedra and maybe that other gal that was on the RHOATL, that called Kim Z "a whore" would possibly be a combination that some people would like to watch. It's just completely useless and wasted time for me to even begin to entertain anymore.

 

I have a lot of respect for you 2 MD's, and I actually get Toya and Kari.  But the M&Q show needs to take a rest, permanently.  I wish you 4 the best.  I hope that the others get their game on somewhere else, but I don't wish them ill favors. The Queen Bee needs to Buzz off and take her little green bee with her!

Dr. Simone, you are a person that loves life and likes to have fun.  You tried your hardest not to take sides but unfortunately you did take sides.  You immediately ran to Toya's side and continued to interact with her while cutting Mariah completely off.  If you were not taking sides, then you would have at least called Mariah the next day to check on her.  That's what a friend would do. Your response to Mariah regarding this issue was way overdue and lack luster.  You are a good person and I expected so much more from you in this situation regarding your interactions with Mariah.  We all make mistakes and I hope you learn from this and remain neutral in situations like this going forward.  I wish you much success.

Dr. Simone, thank you for being classy and keeping it real at the same time. Black women need real women like you as mentors.  thank you.  However... you need a lesson in friendship. You were remiss in not reaching out to Mariah sooner. When you went to see if Toya was okay... you had no idea if Mariah was okay. That looks and would feel to a friend as if you were more concerned for Toya's well being.  You then invited Toya and her hubby over. I know you have a million things on your plate; add friendship to it. We have to lift ourselves up... and sometimes that lift has to be the helping hand of a friend. You are so strong, intelligent, poised and beautiful that your friendship is a blessing to your friends.  But, when God blesses you... that blessing is not just for you.  Share your strength, poise, integrity and intelligence. Mariah needs you as a friend. Ms. Quad does too.

I admire you Dr. Simone. Please stay away from Mariah, Quad and Toya. All three of them are like a cancer. They are incapable of being civilized or being a good friend. Please don't waste your time with the likes of those three. Nothing good will come out from being associated from those three troublemakers. They are BAD news and you dont have the time to be wasting on them. The negative aspect of hanging out with the likes of them is that you will learn and then slowly become catty like them. So stay away from them!!!! They are low class bitches.

Love, love you on the show along with Dr. Jackie.  It seems that there are three groups that are divided.  1) Dr. Jackie & you    2) Kari & Toya    3) Queen Bee & Quad

 

I feel that they need to keep group one with maybe group two.  Could make for a really enjoyable show.  Really feel that no matter who is with group three, the same old claws will be out & childish behavior continue.  Quad was very childish with her props, facial expressions & little blurbs.  Only Nee Nee can get away with it & she is the Queen Bee.

 

Continue being who you are.

Simone, You are my favorite. You are so funny, so full of life and yet you say it how it is. What I can't understand about the show is how can you put educated doctors in the same setting as hood rats? This season was nothing but a train reck but it was entertaining. I hope you have a wonderful summer..

You and your segments on the show are my favorite!!  You rock!!  I love it that you and Dr.Jackie are two friends who are almost like night and day, but can banter back and forth to the point of describing each others faults...and still keep it real within your friendship...just awesome.

Dr.Simone, You and Mariah are Friends and I think that will always be. because you got emotional and so did she with each other and if you don't care it wouldn't brought you and her so much pain. so I believe you, Mariah and Quad will be alright. I Love the 3 of you

So sad your post. ...it makes you look like a fool. you can apologize to your friend but stand by your actions. You were there and saw these women belittle someone based on hearsay. Toya was wrong to talk about the adoption to someone outside the circle but Mariah's actions were based on "hearsay". If they were friends as Mariah is implying than she could have asked her friend what happened and told her how that hurt her up front. She pulled Quad into another room on the first show so why not Toya. Now you want to kiss ass because you are afraid of Quad and Mariah   ???? Yet you can call a little girl a bitch because she maybe interested in your son ?????

The fans were right about you...two faced and no spine. A follower and not a true friend to anyone. You showed your true colors with this blog.

I like you Dr. Simone. You always let us know which way you're swinging. If you don't say it; you're face says it. I'm glad you admitted that you what many of us saw. It appeared you and Jackie took sides for a long time about the Lauren situation. Most importantly, I appreciate the way you speak to the ladies (like you're all adults). But, I wish you would tell Jackie off sometimes. If she stays on this show the real her will come shining through. I can't stand the silence is golden crap; this is reality TV. If you want to be silent; do something other than reality TV. Luv ya Doc!

 @CarmenE I agree about the B word, I actually stopped watching when that comment was made in reference to someone's child.  I watched the reunion to see if there was any commentary about that (apology, explanation, something)  .......as we all have seen there was none.  More like it's her favorite word to use.......Oh Well.

@msj0226 a lady with class would call her young son's girlfriend a little bitch? Wow

 @NashTN Hi.... I agree with you. The entire reunion was indeed a joke and watching Quad and Mariah act like silly teenagers was embarrassing me, so these two must know they made themselves look absolutely foolish...again on national TV....will these two ever get it? You're clowns and the more you cut up the more pathetic and sad you become, grow up.

 

I also found Dr. Simone rather sad in her need to find forgiveness from Mariah. Forgiveness for what? Your friend, Ms. Marian made a fool of herself, the show and how you women were portrayed and your sorry for her and wanting forgiveness???? I agree with everything you said.....they all act as though Mariah has this pull in Atl. to elevate them to what? She's a housewife...end of story. Show some dignity Simone....you were doing just fine before the show and will do so after the show.

 

Finally, I'm so disappointed in Dr. Jackie....she and she alone missed a chance to clean up everybody's act and bring this season to a mature balance...instead, she allowed others to speak, when she herself was the only one we all really would have heard.

 Actually, she went to Toya's side to see if she could help her, since everyone else was surrounding Mariah trying to comfort her.  That is when shady Toya took advantage of Dr. Simone and lied to her about what really happened.  You know, the fact that she hit Mariah with her drink, which Mariah to smack her with her purse.  Then Toya starting with the profanity and street fighting FIRST.

 @Neszoe Can I get a amen up in here!!!! loved loved loved your comments.....Simone puts on this tough act around Dr. Jackie, but when she's around Bevis and Buthead, aka Mariah and Quad, she has the need to have their approval.....she's all up in their face smiling like their little btch. Neither is worthy. If she was smart, she'd stick with the real movers and shakers of the medical inner circle and dump all these women.

 @Neszoe

 Do you really think Toya could be a friend to anyone?  She seems to only gossip about Mariah in the barber shop or with her hair stylist.  She wants what she is gossiping about to be spread.  The husband is no better.  Just saying.  I don't think Dr. Simone was being two faced.

CarmenE

 @cassandra@brooklyn

Exactly and hopefully even though she apologize to Mariah, I hope Mariah does not put her trust in Dr. Simone. I have changed my opinion of Dr. Simone because I really was not liking her AT ALL but I respect that she gave a heart felt apology BUT I still wouldn't trust her if I were Mariah.

Pottymo13
Pottymo13

 @EloiseM I find your assessment a bit skewed.....Mariah came to this event, late and with an attitude. Grant it, Toya shouldn't have approached her about her mother, but from what I saw, Mariah putting her hands on Toya's hair, Toya backing up that's what instigating a fight, and the glass was thrown as a last result....bottom line, Mariah, if you're gonna claim the label of head diva in charge, it comes with a little measure of responsibility and one of them, is remaining above the chaos and drama at all cost.

Pottymo13

 @EloiseM  @Neszoe This is my take on what might have been said about this adoption mess. Ladies we've all been down the hair dresser lane....lots and lots and lots of talk about everything and nothing....Toya who is adopted herself, could have been applauding Dr. Ayden for adopting Mariah's daughter and could in effect said "how cool or nice she think that is". The conversation could have either stopped at this point or continued.. with her hairdresser in the privacy of her home...Again hairdresser gets back to salon and it spirals from there and is overheard.....I don't see the big deal is all this because something so sacred, as Mariah paints it, should be for her and her families ears ONLY....so clearly it wasn't much of a big deal for Mariah...just a juicy story line that sadly backfired.

 @EloiseM

 Eloise, yes it is clear that Toya has friends by the amount of people who was at her party. It seems to me that Quad started "gossiping" about Toya in episode one when Toya asked her about the text that Quad's husband sent out. It was also clear that Quad and Toya were never on good terms. Hence the phrase "tacky Toya" first introduced by the childish Quad. It has been established that Toya never went to the hair salon and that Deedee overheard a conversation between Toya and her husband about the adoption. The conversation should not have happened but it did. Mariah should have told Toya what happened as a result of her conversation and set her story line around the way parents go about telling their child of an adoption instead of how grown women fight at party's. And I absolutely think Simone is two faced.
