We begin the episode of “Married to Medicine” with a roundup of the women and their busy, busy morning. Dr. Heavenly is with her
favorite child daughter, Alaura, who wants to be a singer, but has a case of stage fright. Heavenly tells Alaura the way to sing is to first become a public speaker. Alaura isn’t buying any of this and out of the mouths of babe, tells her mother to quit talking about herself all the time. Heavenly ignores this great advice and tells her daughter that she’s being honored at a magazine party for being successful. Heavenly was the first cover model for the magazine, ‘Hers.’ Lisa Nicole was the fourth cover model, but you know, if you’re not first, you’re last.
Meanwhile, in a dark and rainy alley, Quad meets with her private investigator, Walter, to get the goods on Lisa Nicole Cloud. Their meeting is successful in light of the fact Quad receives all the information she needs to finally give Lisa Nicole a taste of her own medicine.
Over at Dr. Jackie’s house, Dr. Simone stops by to discuss the failed intervention by her and Toya’s husbands. Dr. Jackie doesn’t understand why Simone is giving away her power to a person she doesn’t even care about. Long story short, Dr. Jackie explains that Simone is still harboring unresolved issues with her alcoholic father. Simone sobs onto Dr. Jackie’s shoulder, tired of people who don’t own their stuff.
Toya and her two boys go over to Jill’s mansion to have a play date with her kids. Jill’s husband is a plastic surgeon and makes a lot more money than Dr. Eugene. Toya and Jill are like peas and carrots. Jill is book smart; Toya is street smart. And they both enjoy “mommy juice” while supervising their kids as they play in the backyard. Toya shares her plan to run her husband’s office to help him make more money. Jill holds back a laugh, and explains the complexities of running an office while being the boss’ wife.
Simone drops home between baby catches to visit her husband, Cecil, but mainly to apologize for losing her damn mind in the parking at Top Golf over Toya. Simone and Cecil agree that she needs to work on controlling her pop-off button. It seems to be broken.
Lisa Nicole is so lucky to go to her boutique, pick out something to wear for the evening, and then return it to the hanger. While she’s getting glammed up for the magazine party in a 1994 prom dress her husband, Dr. Darron, comes in saying he’s all tired from the thirsty, bedroom romp, make-up sex last night with his wife. Guess Dr. Darron also wants an award.
The party is at Vibe Restaurant and Dr. Heavenly and Jill are the first to arrive so they discuss Jill’s fake breasts because they are so fascinating, bless her heart. Toya arrives and wants to be honored for being the number one parent. She doesn’t say if it’s number one parent on the block or in the world and probably doesn’t care. The topic of strip clubs come up. The women discuss who goes and who doesn’t with their men. Lisa Nicole is against this. Toya and Jill are for it. Toya throws shade at Lisa Nicole when she agrees that she wouldn’t want Dr. Darren to go into the “devil’s den” either.
Back at the party, Dr. Simone arrives, and after being schooled on the great strip club debate, she too is against it. Simone then goes over to Toya and says hello. Toya says hello back. No one yells or gets slapped. Meanwhile, Dr. Damon tells the other men his thoughts on the strip club’s purpose: to get the men all revved up so that they can go home to their wives. Mmm-hmm. That’s what he said. They all agree this will be the new story going forward, though Dr. Darren is a little quiet. He must have had other things on his mind.
Dr. Jackie couldn’t attend the magazine party because she was busy being a doctor. Did you know that “ectomy” means to take something out? Thanks Dr. Jackie for this week’s biology lesson. Tonight’s surgery will be a cyst removal from a patient’s ovary. Though the surgery was difficult, Dr. Jackie saved the ovary! And now the patient can have sex without pain!!!
Lisa Nicole and Heavenly each thank their husbands in their acceptance speeches. When speaking privately with Heavenly, Simone accidentally spills her cocktail on Heavenly’s brand new dress. Simone wipes the liquid off her chest, and Heavenly wants to know why Simone is always touching her titties. Girl, use a napkin or something.
Quad and Dr. Simone are shopping at an organic market. Quad wants to plan something for the women, but first wants to work out the kinks in the relationships. Who are they calling out? Lisa Nicole Cloud. Last year’s meek to this year’s sleek. Quad tells Simone about the private investigator, practically rubbing her hands together. Simone thinks the sh*t is getting deep and don’t nobody swim.
Tune in next week when Lisa Nicole accuses Quad of having a lesbian affair and the drinks start flying.
