On the June 28 episode of Married to Medicine Los Angeles, Dr. Imani Walker announced that she and her husband, Phil Johnson, had separated and planned to divorce. During the July 3 episode of The Daily Dish podcast, the psychiatrist opened up about what it was like to share the revelation with her friends. 

Imani admitted that her relationship change was initially very difficult to process. “When we first decided to separate, I had to really think about, OK, he’s my husband legally, but we’re not really together. And even having to say to myself, like, ‘Oh, I’m getting divorced’ was really hard for me.”

Naturally, it was difficult for Imani to share the news with her friends. But who was she most worried about telling? “I mean, I had already discussed this with Britten,” she explained. “I guess I was kind of worried about all of them.” 

“I mean, this is going to sound silly, but people take marriage very seriously, obviously” Imani continued. “I think I was just more so concerned that there might be some backlash, when for me, it’s more about like, look, if I’m not happy, then I’m not happy. I got to go. I’m not going to stick around and, you know, play games and be like, ‘Oh, everything’s fine.’ I got to the point where I was like, I can’t do this anymore.”

Imani explained that she was expecting the women to ask her “a lot more questions,” and even thought they’d be mad at her. 

“But, that’s not how it actually worked out. They were really supportive,” she said. “So I was really happy to see that.”
