Mariah's Slander and Toya's Sadness

Toya can't believe Mariah and her family would spreadsuch vicious lies about her.



I am forced to respond this week to the fallacious and accusatory arrows that have been shot in my direction this week. To make it plain: the statements from Lake and Lucy about discussing Mariah's daughter in a hair salon are not only false, but are also slanderous and saddening. Slanderous because they are simply just not true, and saddening because they show what length their family will go to achieve fame and celebrity.

I will address the lies and slander. I have never discussed Mariah's daughter except for agreeing with my husband, Eugene, in a private conversation (meaning no one but he and I were around) when Eugene complemented Aydin for being a man's man by stepping up and adopting HIS daughter (see Episode 2). I agreed that this statement was true to him in a private conversation.

I have no clue why my name would be attached to beauty shop gossip and discussions within her family. The best proof of their venomous words being a gross falsification is that I too was adopted!!! I.E. why in the hell would I spread a rumor about something so near and dear to my own heart? When I was eight, my mother married a great man. I was raised by this man as his own, and I am indebted to him beyond measure. I know firsthand how it feels to grow up in a mixed household, and I would NEVER choose to speak ill of any situation like my very own. I find it ugly and malicious for Mariah's family to use me as a pawn and a villain in the telling of her daughter's triumphant story.

To further prove my point, outside of a lack of motive, there is also the lack of evidence in this case. Lucy, Lake, and I do not belong to the same social circles. I have never seen nor heard of their mention at any of the places I frequent. I use freelance private stylists for my Glam Squad and they come to my home, to which Lucy nor Lake have never been invited. In addition to me not having said these things concerning her daughter; It is impossible for ANYONE to have "heard" that I was talking about Mariah's daughter, because we do not have any interaction outside of Mariah -- and that in itself is already too much.

Mariah's venomous overreaction to hearsay and gossip from a salon is not only absurd, but also illegal. You can not assault people for what you "think" they might have said. This speaks volumes to Mariah's character. As professionals we need to hold ourselves in a higher regard than the common street thug that runs rapid within society. Unfortunately, I was forced to defend myself in this situation when I was attacked. As for Lake scurrying to tell Mariah her juicy gossip that she concocted, I will get that to very soon.

As for the sadness that I feel, it is horrific that Mariah will use anything and anyone to achieve success. Fabricating a scenario where she gets to cover up her cavalier discussion about her daughter to anyone and everyone by using me as the scapegoat is preposterous.

It's obvious her husband did not know of her loose lips until the show aired. She used me. But even more horrific is the abuse of her daughter in his matter. Where will the lies stop? And the Academy Award goes to. . .Mariah, for best liar in a reality show. How dare you? Your fame seeking sickens me and it pains me to see how you will even use your own family as pawns. Even your sister was manipulated. And the statement of Mariah being a friend to me. . .HA! You have no idea what that means. Wanting people around you to stroke your ego is your and Hitler's version of friendship! No thank you...

Like your driver to the party. . .Get lost! #dropthemic

Simone: Yes, I'm Still Angry with Toya

Simone says she's not a fence rider and thinks Toya lacks the "intellect" and "maturity" to be on Married to Medicine.

Whew! We made it through Reunion still alive and in one piece, but just barely. Mysteries remain intact, questions were left unaswered, old friendships were severed forever and some new friendships just couldn't get off the ground.  Where in the world does this mess leave this group?

I truly believe Married to Medicine has something to offer America. Right now, we are the only show with seven married African American couples who also happen to have seven doctorates. Our young Black America needs to see more of this on TV, not fighting, murders, scandals or mistresses. We have shown everything life has to offer, the good, the bad and everything in between. A few of you have been so quick to criticize our behavior but realistically, everyone walking this earth experiences difficulties in relationships. And everyone has reacted or overreacted to a situation. Surely no one can should assume that a doctorate changes human nature or human responses.

Some of you swear you would never act like some of us, but I know you have behaved poorly behind closed doors. We chose to open the door and let the camera in. The scenarios in life are all the same, the only difference between my life and yours are the people in it!

It was difficult AGAIN to witness Toya telling a lie about her intent to fight me in front of my son AFTER calling me a bad mother.  It is sad that she can throw jabs and insults on the lowest levels but can not handle them in return. She doesn't have the self control, intellect or maturity to be on a show called Married to Medicine.  I am so sure she would fit in quite well on some other shows which I will not name for you today. (This is pure shade and yes, I'm still angry with her.)

I must share some final thoughts on Quad and Mariah, even though I know you're tired of beating a dead horse.  I did not say much on the Reunion after Toya lunged "to give me a hug" because I felt some of the ladies couldn't handle others' opinions about them even though they're quick to offer their own opinions about me.

In Quad's opinion, I am a fence rider. Let me make myself and my intent for Quad and Mariah's issues very clear. The ONLY thing I ever wanted for them was peace and friendship. If we couldn't have that, I wanted civility for the entire cast! Every lady on this show was a vital part of it. In my angriest moments this Season, I could still be in Toya's presence. Didn't want to talk to or sit near her but I never refused to attend an event because she was coming. Even after she tried to fight me at the Reunion, I continued to film with and was civil towards her. Hint: it’s called being mature.  In real life, you must be cordial to your co-workers even when you don’t like them.

Let me also make this point: anyone who thinks in her head she is more important, more revelant or better than anyone else on this show has the game all twisted and played wrong. It has truly been the combination of many factors and faces that contribute to the success of this show.

The biggest factor of them all is YOU, the fans. Without you willing to tune in each week at various times (and now different days) and share your thoughts and opinions on social media, it would not be possible to share Married to Medicine with the world. I thank you so much!

It was an interesting Season to say the least. I'm glad it's over and I'm curious about the future. Take care until . . .
