Toya reveals how being on TV has changed her.

This week I feel like blogging about the positives of Married to Medicine. Mariah's idea for a reality show has sky rocketed and I give all thanks to God, the viewers, the producers, and Bravo. I never imagined that the lives of doctors' wives would be exciting to watch on television. Mariah had an eye and saw in all of us a great cast, and when I auditioned for the show, who would've thought the producers would see in me what I never saw in myself?

Television was never my dream, but writing has always been something I loved doing. This show is providing a platform for my nursery book series, which I'm sure you'll love. It's a series based on motherhood and the challenges of first-time moms and mothers of two or more. It also highlights the unconditional, true love you can only experience through Motherhood. I guess that's why I was so offended and took it very personal when Mariah thought I would do anything to hurt Lauren. As you can see, by Episode 8, I had had enough of the foolish accusations.

Being on television has also helped me to develop a tougher skin like no other. I thank God I knew who I was coming in, because the public sure can draw a strong opinion based on small snippets of my life. I will also say that I have developed relationships and experienced things I've never experienced before. It has been such a learning experience. I pride myself on being pretty laid back and very transparent, my close friends would have to agree. I never wore makeup, could care less about what people thought, but now I find myself wearing mink lashes and eyeshadow. Ha!
