A couple of the topics discussed in these first two episodes demonstrate one of the many reasons why Married To Medicine was originally developed. It's important to see the everyday struggles of doctors and their families. Since we visit doctors to "heal" our aches, pains, and various illnesses, it's easy to forget that these medical professionals may be experiencing the exact same thing or having to make difficult choices that affect their entire household.
Last week, we witnessed Dr. Simone trying to juggle both her job responsibilities and fulfill the expectations that come with being a mother. Tonight's episode is to be applauded for the candid conversation between Dr. Jackie and her husband, Curtis regarding infertility and adoption. It made me regret once again for unintentionally hurting Dr. Jackie's feelings with my remark last year about not understanding my situation with my daughter. Dr. Jackie, as an OB-Gyn, has provided the most precious of gifts to so many women with the number of healthy babies that she has delivered. The fact that her bouts with breast cancer and subsequent treatments have prevented her from experiencing the same joy that she has helped to give others seems cruel. However, any child would be blessed to be adopted and raised by the Walters and I applaud them for considering this option.

Thanks to all of you who tweeted about how much you loved my beautiful white feather couture dress by French designer, Maxime Simoens. His unique and exclusive designs have been worn by Beyoncé, Gisele Bundchen (aka Mrs. Tom Brady of the New England Patriots), and actress Blake Lively to name a few. I felt as if the dress was fit for a black tie affair at the White House! Yaaassss honey she was #PushingThru feathers and all!
Thanks so much JonRossTheStylist.com for styling me. You were right this dress is the talk of the town! #WerQ

Lastly, I want to take this time to apologize for anyone offended by the advice that I gave to my nephew, Ian last week. It was not my intent to advocate violence nor encourage/condone any boy or man to hit a girl or woman. And to be perfectly candid, no one at our table, including my nephew, thought I was being serious because I wasn't.
Television shows don't always reflect the complete picture and this was one of those times. I was joking with my nephew about a recent situation at his school with an older child that had been reported to the administrators and resolved. Nevertheless, I recognize my mistake for saying what I did and how it was interpreted by so many of you.
Until next week,
