The latest reality series in the "wives" genre follows the wives of doctors in Atlanta. Bravo premiered "Married to Medicine," and it follows the tone and feel of the various "Real Housewives" series. Maybe it could spawn a second empire of spinoffs!
There are two women doctors on the show, but the rest of the cast is filled with doctors' wives and medical sales associates. But they're all capable of behaving poorly and, as seen in the premiere, looking down their noses at one of their own. In this case, that's Quad, who's new to their group.
Quad lacks the sophistication of the other women, according to them, which they find to be a problem. "I take you as I see you, all I’ve seen is a lady acting crazy," Kari told her. Then to the other women, she said, "We are going to have to take her under our wing."
"I know an etiquette coach," Toya said.
So they want to make Quad their very own "Pretty Woman" project. iVillage wasn't impressed with any of the woman, and in fact the whole concept of the show. They cited a Howard University petition to cancel the show which they say "heavily associates black females in medicine with materialism, cat fights, and unprofessionalism."
The New York Times, on the other hand, enjoyed the premiere. They wrote that it stands out from the crowded field of Atlanta-based reality shows, with Quad as the breakout star.
See if the Quad project works out by tuning in to "Married to Medicine" on Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
