Genise Shelton has officially been dropped from the cast of Married to Medicine, AllAboutTheTea.com can exclusively report.
Genise was a cast member on the fourth the season of the Bravo reality series that spotlights doctors and doctor’s wives. The Atlanta realtor is a mother to six children with Dr. Courtney Shelton.
“Production fired Genise and replaced her with her own friend. This friend is the new girl on the show. She took Genise’s spot and the whole thing is messy as hell,” a rock solid insider tells AllAboutTheTea.com exclusively.
Genise’s replacement is new Married to Medicine Season 5 cast member, Dr. Contessa Metcalfe. She’s an occupational and preventative medicine physician (pictured below).

Well there’s MORE to the story. According to AllAboutTheTea.com insiders, Genise and Dr. Contessa use to be close friends. Genise recommended her to audition for producers but never imagined her friend would stab her in the back.
“Contessa test filmed and the producers loved her. But she could have declined to come on the show when she found out she was in and Genise was out. They fired Genise and replaced her with Contessa.”
According to our rock solid insider, Dr. Contessa’s personality is “rough.” Our source describes her demeanor as, “butch-like” and “aggressive.”
Our insider explained, “They are so different — Genise is approachable and easy to talk to but Contessa is standoffish and hardcore. I’m not feeling Ms. Contessa.”
But producers were wowed by the doctor and Contessa had a secret weapon working in her favor — a ratchet nanny!
“She has a ghetto nanny that cusses her out all the time!” The insider tells AllAboutTheTea.com. “The woman cuss like a sailor and is ratchet. The nanny calls Contessa [the N word] on a regular basis too. The nanny is loud, rude and downright CRAZY! She is Donell Jones’ [90’s R&B singer] mama.”
As seen in the Married to Medicine trailer below — the 41-year-old is a Navy vet and quite the rugged type. Take a look for yourself.
The new season of Married to Medicine premieres November 5 at 10:00 p.m. ET on Bravo — don’t miss it!
