Meet the New Stars of 'Married to Medicine’
All about newcomers Heavenly Kimes and Lisa Nicole Cloud.
Married to Medicine returns to the small screen on April 6, and this time around, the ladies of Atlanta will be joined by two new cast members. For season two, Lisa Nicole Cloud (above, right) and Heavenly Kimes are jumping into the scene (and the drama).
Before they make their debut, get to know the two new stars of the show—and fun facts about them.
She's a dental diva.
The first dentist to join the show's ranks, Heavenly is one of the most sought after DDSes in Atlanta and owns four dental practices (called Heavenly Dental Associates). She's been dubbed a "Who's Who Among America's Top Dental Professionals."
She thinks her name helps her business. Actually, she knows her otherworldly name helps her business! Heavenly has had clients sign up for her services just based on her name sent from above. "You’d be surprised by how many people come to my office saying they were praying for a good dentist and then they saw 'Heavenly Dental' and thought 'Hey, that’s where I need to be.'"
She also sells real estate.
In addition to her dental practice, Heavenly has a license to sell homes, an insurance license and a Series 65 certification. She's also a member of the American Academy of General Dentistry, National Dentistry Association, and the Georgia Dental Society.
She's an author, too.
Heavenly has penned the self-help book Dr. Heavenly's Business Prescriptions: You Can Have It All and is a co-author of the best-selling series Wake Up...Live the Life You Love.
She's got a thing for motivational speaking.
Heavenly launched a BlogTalkRadio program to talk about her "business prescriptions," where she interviews special guests about achieving success across every industry, from endodontics to politics.
She's a proud mom and wife.
Heavenly is the mother to three children. She's been married to Dr. Damon Kimes for nearly two decades, and the two have added four pups to their household.
She's big on striking a balance.
Heavenly may work hard and play hard, but the balance she maintains between the two keeps things happy for her both at home and at the office. "Some women are all about career and some are all about staying home with their kids," she tells Essence. "I fit right in the middle. Initially, I had to work a lot harder, but now I’m able to balance my career and family a lot better. You have to know your priorities. For me, they are God and family and then my career."
Lisa Nicole Cloud
She's a renaissance woman.
Lisa has started tons of successful businesses, and tried many professional hats—author, direct sales expert, success coach—on for size.
She's been working since she was a teen.
Around the age of 14, Lisa held down a job as a legal clerk in a well-known law firm. "I was a type of kid who always wanted to play business," she's said. "I would be in my room acting like a manager of a corporation at the age of 8 and 9 and 10, and so as soon as I could get a job, I got a job."
She's got an eye for style.
Lisa is the brainchild behind the fashion line Lisa Nicole Diamond Collection, a line of chic, high-fashion couture for the modern day business woman.
She got connections to Real Housewives of Atlanta.
It turns out that a familiar face deserves a little credit for the Lisa Nicole Collection as well: Dwight Eubanks, who you may recognize from a few parties (and catty confrontations) on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, also contributed his design ideas to Lisa's clothing line.
Her nickname is "Ms. Millionaire Maker."
She's coached a number of MLM (multi-level marketing) professionals who've gone on to make their fortunes. She's big on passion, and her success as a Millionaire-training dynamo is rooted in an ability to channel one's passion into a lucrative move for profit.
She's a doting mom and devoted wife.
Despite her impressive resume, Lisa is also happily married to her husband Dr. Darren Naugles and mother of two children, DJ and Amira.
She loves a tropical getaway
Lisa adores any opportunity to travel on vacation. Especially to the Virgin Islands. "I love escaping to the Caribbean, you know, watching the sun set," she's said. "I love spending time with my husband and with my children."
She learned to be independent from her mother.
Raised by a single mom, Lisa learned a lot from her. "She not only worked, but she got her college degree while at the same time raising a young child on her own," she's said. "And so she really taught me that whatever you put your mind to, no matter what obstacles you face, if you are willing to focus and work hard, you can accomplish whatever goals you set for yourself."
We think Heavenly and Lisa will feel right at home with the M2M crew. Do you? Let us know in the comments.
