Married to Medicine is a cross between Real Housewives of Atlanta meets Beverly Hills. The series follows the daily lives of six women in the Atlanta medical community; two of the women Jacqueline and Simone are REAL doctors, the other Real Housewives just happened to be married to doctors. It’s the clash between classy and trashy trophy wives.
The main drama mamas are Kari Wells and Mariah Huq. Kari who’s the resident priss, hales from Yorkshire, England. An actress and former model, she prides herself on being the Queen Bee of the group. She’s married to Colombian-raised orthopedic surgeon and hand specialist, Duncan Wells, for the last ten years.
Kari, who’s ego was recently bruised when Quad called her “medical mistress.” Defended her marriage on her Bravo blog stating: “I was never my husband’s mistress or anyones mistress. A mistress implies secrecy and deceit. When I met my husband 11 years ago, I would not even have dinner with him until he faxed me a document showing me he was legally separated. He was leaving his short childless (and loveless) marriage. They both amicably signed the separation agreement and went their separate ways until the divorce. Since then, we have shared 11 magical years together and we are proud parents of our two wonderful children.”
Kari may be a wonderful wife and mother but she’s not such a good friend. She loves to throw shade on Mariah because she was poor before she married a doctor. In reality, Mariah has more class than all the girls combined. She’s grounded and values her relationships.
LaKeisha “Mariah” Huq is married to Aydin Huq, a Bangladeshi emergency physician. Huq is the CEO and founder of Mariah Media Group and is a producer of the Married to Medicine series. Her doctor is not only cute but has lots of swag.
On Mariah’s Bravo blog she wrote: “”Class is an aura of confidence that is being sure without being cocky. Class has nothing to do with money. Class never runs scared. It is self-discipline and self-knowledge. It’s the sure-footedness that comes with having proved you can meet life” — Ann Landers. We totally agree with Mariah.
As a matter of fact if Kari would do a few Google searches she would see, that amongst all these divas, she is the least educated, the least fashionable, least diplomatic, and least fiscally sound. #CheckYourEmail #Fax and please #AskJeeves.
