During a game of "Shag, Marry, Kill" in the December 1 episode of Married to Medicine (clip above), Dr. Simone Whitmore asked Quad who she would marry if she could have anyone as her husband. As Quad thought about it, Dr. Heavenly suggested, "Common, bitch." The dentist then noted that Common has been a guest on Sister Circle, the talk show Quad co-hosts, and joked that the two have been intimate together.
However, Quad was quick to shoot down the gossip. "Absolutely not," she said during the episode. "In fact, he's dating someone right now."
Quad further set the record straight during a recent interview with BET. “Rumors get started when a person wants to think more about the ratings and less about loyalty and friendship,” she said. “I don’t know why she [Dr. Heavenly] would jeopardize our friendship for entertainment purposes, everything is not a joke.”
Quad went on to say that she has only interacted with Common, who is currently dating political strategist and commentator Angela Rye, as part of her career. “I don’t know Common, I don’t have his phone number, and we have never shared the same space. I met him once during an interview with [sic] Sister’s Circle,” Quad said. “This was a very professional setting, and I take my career very seriously. I do not use it as a dating ground.”
This moment during the couples trip in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico has been damaging to this Married to Medicine friendship, according to Quad. “I am so very disappointed in Heavenly, and I don’t think she realizes the repercussions of making such false statements,” she shared. “Her actions are not the actions of a true friend. What is most hurtful is that we were close for the last 2-3 years and what she did was very lowbrow and inconsiderate.”
Dr. Heavenly told BET that she was surprised so much controversy came out of this moment. “I had no idea that people would take my joke this far and create such a firestorm,” she said. “I thought that it was so far fetched that people wouldn’t even take it so seriously.”
She also apologized to Quad for her comments. “I am deeply sorry to my girl Quad. Although it was a joke, it was one that went too far and I should have known better.”
Dr. Heavenly said that she hopes she and Quad can move past this and get their friendship back on track. “I hope that Quad knows my heart and that we are able to move on from this because we have built a great friendship over the years,” Dr. Heavenly said. “Again, to my friend Quad, I am sorry, and I had no idea that it would blow up like this. I take full responsibility for my words, and I hope that I did not hurt anyone which includes Common and Angela Rye.”
These days, Quad is feeling "young, single, and free," she told The Daily Dish during an interview in November. "I'm enjoying being single. It was tough for me earlier on, but we've been removed for about a year-and-a-half now, a little over a year-and-a-half, now the divorce is final," she said. "Life is good. Life is really good."
As for what's really going on in her dating life, Quad told The Daily Dish that things have been "good" for her in the romance department. "It's been fun," she said. "Very interesting. Meeting new people, it's great."
