Toya: "See Beyond What's Shown on TV"
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!
Going forward, I'd like to ask my fans to see beyond what's shown on television. See the love I have for my family, see how faithful I am to my friends, see that, like you, I am not perfect. I make mistakes just like everyone, but it's cool, because in those mistakes I bloom into the rose God created in me. I have done many foolish things in my life, but I am thankful for the lessons and triumphant endings. I hope that in the coming episodes you will see that the plots/whiles of the devil never have any validity. Look for PROOF, because some of my castmates love to throw shade.
