Thanks so much for tuning into an entire season of Married to Medicine. Tonight is bittersweet because this is our final episode -- but I'm glad it's over.
Most of the time, I really enjoy these ladies. This year presented a few challenges, but overall I have no regrets.
As you already know, I can find humor in almost anything. Jackie and I had never heard of or attended a puppy fashion show prior to meeting Quad, so the idea of dogs walking/running/barking down a runway was a funny thought. There was no disrespect meant towards Quad's goals and dreams. Obviously, we support her as a friend because we did attend the fashion show and gave donations to her cause.
I hate the fact that Quad has called me a coward when I have been honest, straight forward, and clear to her and Mariah about their issues and how they impact the circle of friends. It makes me realize how short-sided and self-absorbed Quad is. She simply can't understand anyone else's point of view or perspective. In order for our friendship to continue and develop, we both need growth. I need to back off and leave it alone when she asks, and she needs to respect my ability to love two people who are at odds with each other. Coming from a divorced household, I know very well how to love two people who are at odds.
Cecil and I enjoyed Mariah's Cinnamon Girl launch party. Her protein bars are quite tasty. I was sad to see Mariah disappointed about the lack of support from some of the other ladies. However, I asked Mariah on multiple occasions to reach out and re-establish connections with the other ladies and she refused, so the level of participation (or lack thereof) was not a surprise.
It is really disappointing that I spent a lot time trying to mend the broken pieces between Quad and Mariah and I have absolutely nothing to show for my efforts. I also tried to get Mariah to see the value of the other friendships she so conveniently disregarded and I failed again. The most puzzling piece of it all was trying to figure out how all of this mess started in the first place. I don’t have a single answer.
Perhaps when we tune in next week for the Married to Medicine Reunion, things will be a clear as a crystal ball!
