Hello Married to Medicine Darlings,
Thank you for tuning in this week. There is so much happening in every woman’s life. Married to Medicine is truly about “Real Women, Real Issues, Real Life Drama!
We open with Dr. Heavenly and Alaura. Alaura gave her opinion of the behavior of her mom and Mariah at the princess party. I think she was spot on and I am amazed at how much wisdom this little girl has. She definitely has mature and accurate observations. I want to thank Heavenly for apologizing to me on Twitter for her behavior. Thank you for owning your part of the drama. It amazes me that she refuses to admit she came late with an entourage, and hired rose throwers to disrespect my home. Let me ask a question, if someone (or their entourage) breaks something of sentimental value in someone’s home should they offer to replace the damaged item? One day I hope Mariah gets to a place where she can own her truth and acknowledge when she does things that offend and hurt people. Playing the victim card eventually get’s old. Actions always speak louder than words. Mariah in this incident, an admission of what you did and a sincere apology could make this issue a moot point. For the record, my issues with Mariah have nothing to do with Quad, but everything to do with some of the things you've said and done to me this Season! #ownyourtruth
On to Dr. Simone and Cecil. I’m so excited Simone is planning a romantic evening for Cecil. Cecil is a great husband and father and he deserves it. Congratulations on being married 17 wonderful years. I loved seeing Simone get her SEXY on with the black skirt and boots. Simone with all that you did for this romantic evening, I hope there was a little "downtown" action from both you and Cecil when you got home. I think it's thought provoking that some men don't need much -- a little undivided attention and quality time and he is a happy camper. Darren and Cecil have a lot in common. The toys are fun but at the end of the day, all they want is US! #weareluckywomen
Jackie was hilarious. Once again we watch Jackie as she tries her hand with being caretaker of a child. Dinner consisted of pickles and popcorn. She even offered Benadryl for desert. Jackie, Jackie, Jackie we have to talk girl! I’m not sure those items have the necessary recommended nutritional value. This would not work with Jackson. I’m definitely thinking we are going to have to put you through mommy bootcamp. #justsoyouknow
Next we catch Reco and Quad in a meeting with the investors. They have made some great progress. The pieces are looking very fabulous and couture. I love the ostrich feathers, pearls and crystals. YAAASSS, Miss Quad, you are doing your thing, girl. I’m very happy for you and very proud. The pet care industry is big business and I personally think you have found an untapped niche in the industry. You are sitting on a gold mine if you execute your business plan well. Congrats again!
I was, however, sad to see Dr. G going in so hard with you. Beneath the surface, I think his real frustration is that he wants a baby! This doggy clothing line is taking a lot of your time and I think his fear is that you may have less time for a child and him as you build your empire. At WEN I told you that sad often comes out as mad when people express their emotions. . .Well, what I also should have told you is scared also comes out as mad when people sometimes express themselves (especially men). I want to give you props because even though Dr. G was yelling and angry, you stayed respectful, calm, cool, and collective. You handled Dr. G perfectly and I think eventually if you help him to relieve his fears, he will come around. I love watching the dynamics with the two of you. Marriage is a journey of highs and lows but with respect and love you can make it last forever. You are a great couple that many can relate to.
Now we get a glimpse into Toya and Eugene’s world. Wow I can’t believe they lost $50,000 of earnest money. That is horrible! The lesson learned is that no matter what, there always has to be a finance contingency in any real estate contract. I would personally be sick for months if I lost $50,000. I don’t even have words for what I would be feeling or doing. I’m glad you found something to help ease your pain in your new house. I can't say I encourage you to rent, but if this makes you happy then I'm happy for you too. As I've told you before, please make sure you get that "lease purchase" contract in place as soon as possible. My hope for you is that some portion of your rent payment goes to the purchase of the property as soon as possible. Remember, making money is one thing. . .but turning it into wealth is something completely different. Best of luck with your new home!
Now that WEN and the Princess Party are behind me, I'm onto planning for the Lisa Nicole Collection fashion show. You know I love fabulous affairs and this is going to be the grandest one yet for the clothing line. I've been building the Lisa Nicole Collection for two and a half years. We have had phenomenal growth in a short period of time and now I'm ready to take it to the next level. Currently we are in several boutiques nationwide but I'm ready to explore department stores and aggressive ecommerce strategies. This upcoming fashion show is going to debut 4 collections for 2014. I'm going to have the who's who of Atlanta in attendance. More importantly, I’m going to have Atlanta's premier boutique owners present and a few buyers from major department stores. This event is very important and I have to pull out all the stops. On this episode you saw one of our model calls. I want to thank Cynthia Bailey of The Real Housewives of Atlanta for being a part of the model call. Her experience and expertise is valuable and I definitely want to work with some of the Bailey Agency models in the future.
Well, as always, we saw a mix of models. Dwight always keeps me laughing at model calls because I never know what’s going to come out of his mouth. Quad also had some pretty entertaining things to say. Cynthia and I are a little less critical and more compassionate for the models. I don't like to see anyone's feelings get hurt, but this is definitely an industry where you must have thick skin. I was very nervous in the beginning of the model call, but by the end, I saw some gorgeous and skilled girls coming down the catwalk. I am confident that we have selected some great girls to represent the Lisa Nicole Collection. Check out our spring/summer collection at LisaNicoleCollection.com. Also follow us on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook at LisaNicoleCollection. I love giving fans free garments and special discount coupons so be sure to join our list on LisaNicoleCollection.com. Lastly, as a special gift to the Married to Medicine fans, I'm going to pick one lucky fan this week who follows me on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook to receive a free garment from the Lisa Nicole Collection. GOOD LUCK! Check me out on Twitter on Friday for the announcement of the winner. Be Fabulous In A Lisa Nicole!
Until Next Week,
Love and Success
