Dr. Simone Whitmore Reflects on Her Son Michael Moving Out of Her House

The Married to Medicine mom opens up about moving her son into his new dorm room at Lee University.

Would Dr. Simone Whitmore Move In With Her Son Michael to Keep His Studies On Track In College?

On the April 4 episode of Married to Medicine, Dr. Simone Whitmore had an event that she's been getting ready for all season: Her son Michael headed off to Lee University in Tennessee.

How to Watch

Watch Married to Medicine now streaming on Peacock and the Bravo App.

In earlier episodes, Simone had prepared for Michael's move through going-away parties, heart-to-heart talks, and a dorm-room shopping trip for two. But in the most recent episode, Michael finally packed his bags and headed off on his next adventure — and both mother and son had feelings. 

In a joined interview with his mama, the basketball player joked: "I definitely won't miss her yelling at me," as he pointed his thumb at Simone. But then, he sweetly added: "I'm gonna miss the hugs. I'm gonna miss the love and laughing," he confessed. "The 'Need some cash?' I'm gonna miss that!" 

After the family's two-hour drive to Lee University (see the road trip in the clip above), the episode offered a peek inside Michael's dorm room. The newly minted college student made his bed with a little unsolicited help from his mom, and he had a desk and bookshelves by his bedside.

"I'm gonna miss you," Simone said later when the family headed to lunch. But then she confessed: "The one thing I am gonna is enjoy is now, when the cleaning people come, and they clean up your room, it's clean!"

In her interview, she got a bit more sentimental. "There are so many things that I am going to miss about having Michael around ... But the two most important things are my hugs and the exchange of I love you every day."
