Last night on Bravo TV’s Medicine to Medicine
, one of the most ridiculous fights in reality television history went down between co-stars Maria Huq and Toya Bush-Harris. As childish as it may sound, these grown women got to pulling hair and tussling around a party full of doctors over comments that one made about the other’s mother (I kid you not). Fellow cast members and the show’s audience have equally expressed how ridiculous it was that these grown women came to blows on national television and now, Maria Huq is expressing how much she regrets the showdown. An excerpt from her post
“I remember feeling so hurt, ashamed, and disappointed in myself “initially”after the fight. I felt as if I truly let myself, my family, and friends down. How does a grown educated business woman/mother/wife get into a tussle at a black-tie event? How did I allow a negative girl, with no morals, values, or boundaries bring me down to her level? Not sure what the politically correct answer is, but I know what my truth is. In that moment I was truly hurt and full of despair. Astonished by the lengths people will go to become more relevant. Children are off-limits, point blank, period.
This situation was an eye-opening experience for me. I hold myself to a much higher standard and truly hate that I set a poor example for my kids. I hope and pray it has been an equally valuable lesson in words, consequences and character for Toya as well.”
Mariah’s co-stars Dr. Simone Whitmore and Dr. Jaqueline Walters also weigh in on the fight, expressing their disappointment in Mariah and Toya.
“THIS IS NOT THE MARIAH I KNOW. I had never seen Mariah raise her voice and when I saw her fighting, I was in shock. I still can not believe an actual fight took place. Pinch me, was I in a nightmare?!” Whitemore wrote.
“Both women needed to have handled their emotions, though I will admit this is probably one of the hardest thing for us women to do. Mariah and Toya both admit their dislike for one another, and I am not real sure why they get under each other’s skin. If you don’t like someone, it should be easy to ignore them. Their opinions shouldn’t matter [...] I believe this fight could have been avoided if they had exercised open communication and let go of “who’s right”! I’m not convinced who is right, but I definitely know whose wrong. . .BOTH!!!” Walters added.
What do you make of all of this?
