‘I Hate That I Set A Poor Example For My Kids:’ Mariah Huq Expresses Regret Over ‘Married To Medicine’ Brawl

April 15, 2013  |  

Source: Bravo

Last night on Bravo TV’s Medicine to Medicine, one of the most ridiculous fights in reality television history went down between co-stars Mariah 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 reads:

“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?

  • wow even the momma rachet smdh!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Patricia

    I beg PLEASE, PLEASE,PLEASE stop watching these shows so they can go off the air……

  • Jamie

    For some reason, I am not really buying that, I am sorry. She had the opportunity to walk away. I guess when they flash those $$$$, it causes people to do anything. I have seen the excerpt of the show and I wrote Bravo (I don’t think they read it but I did it anyway) and express how disappointed I am about black women particularly acting fool, cussing and fighting each other. This does not set an example for young black women. They may think instead of getting an education, they can just make quick money by getting on a reality show and fight and act a fool. I will not be watching this foolishness or support any business endeavors they are involved in. As I said in previous blogs, people complain about the fighting and the foul language but still continue to support these shows. The best way to stop this is stop watching these shows that degrades and demonizes black women. I hate to say it, but I see Judge Toler or any a divorce lawyer may be getting paid soon ( I hope that does not happen). Yes, white women do fight and have a foul mouth on reality television but they can get away with it. When black women fight and have a foul mouth, they get easily classified as angry, mean, hard to deal with and likes to argue and men don’t want to be bothered with them. It has a different effect on black women.

    Well, I would consider a plumber professional. Basically, I wouldn’t expect a drug dealer’s or mob hitman’s wife to care about how they act, but someone with a legit profession’s wife needs to act like they have some sense. I don’t watch the show, so I don’t know any of the ladies. I just came on to read the comments lol

  • marie clark

    KNow u want to hit the blogs with excuses n more excuses

    A secret that is addressed on TV IS OUT I dont think that is a secret
    anymore if it was so important u and ur sisters and ur mom would not
    have addressed this on nationwide TV if it wasnt handled in the salon it
    should not been up for discussion for TV so u guys must have agreed to
    discuss this subject this was all set up but its a good thing her
    daughter doesnt watch the show or she could have found out from her Aunt
    n Mother the audience is being a sucker for Bravo’s bs this is so transparent.

    This behavior is totally unacceptable Mariah came to the party with a
    chip on her shoulder her sister could have waited until after the party
    to divulge the information they came with the intention that if it
    happened fine all this foolishness fits in with everything that we c
    wrong with our society her mother and her sister and Quad were looking
    for a fight.
    There is a petition being circulated for the shows removal oh well

    Toya should not have repeated personal information but it could have
    been handled differently bcause what did all that do to stop her from
    it again and again and again nothing. Nothing is ever solved with
    violence they all looked terrible how anyone could make excuses for this

    Oh and Quad was saying hell no hell no trying to go over and help Mariah

    fight her husband was holding her back u cant take them serious. 2
    hours late u r selfish and self absorbed with ur disgusting behavior .
    U guys had a gr8t opportunity n u blew it.

    Whats the difference in u and the Bad Girls Club nothing and
    furthermore u signed up for the job u got paid so keep the fake remorse
    full of more excuses u never told them to stop filming the subject
    matter when ur sister blurted it out on cable tv so it could not have
    been that important to u and if it was who better than ur family to have
    known never to broach the subject with the cameras rolling.
    I think that we as viewers have been had this was a complete set up
    This kinda crap needs to b removed from TV.

  • Envy

    I tell you what, lets just get a petition again and get this ratchet show off the air. Sick and tired of seeing black ghetto women on TV or you tube fighting over some stupid sh**t. I don’t care what Toya or Mariah says they just can’t help themselves because they grew up in the ghetto. Guess that’s all they know how to settle things. Like the girl on the bus. In her voice (I’m gone beat your a**). Toya please stop saying you from Detroit, you just made the city even worse by representing your ghetto a**

  • My nana always said, a pig in lipstick is still a pig. Just because the majority of these women married up, does not make them classy. Money does not buy class, as evidenced on this and quite a few other reality shows. The two actual Drs appear to be the only ones with a modicum of decorum.

  • Pivyque

    THIS is why we don’t want these shows on TV. Now, “professional” women are acting like basketball wives! Smh.

    • Disgusted

      Both of their husbands should divorce these wretched women. Put as much distance as they can between them. I would change my name and hope they can get out of ever appearing on the show again. Didn’t they know better before they signed on to this mess?

  • NikkitaMichelle

    What’s going on Bravo? This show looks more like some mess that should have been on Vh1. As many arguments as there has been on the RHOA, a shove, and maybe some wig shifting there has never been this display of violence. Kim claimed Nene choked her out, but she was smart enough not to have that mess filmed. These are not celebrities these women are married to. I would question a doctor’s judgement if these are the type of women that they would make their brides. If you can’t make wise life decisions and I’m not going to let you play with my life while I’m knocked out during surgery. These men need to pull their wives off this show before it really harms their careers.

  • greengoddess

    don’t act like this is more worse than what is always seen on bad girls club.

  • i watched the show and was awe..
    toya has no respect at all talkn bou mariah mom in fron of her friends so dnt nothin wrong wit tha show they r real people with same prob like that human race…we can all learn from this show of how we should act if we could….keep the show on air jus people who have flaws regardsless of ur title r position its real life

  • Guest

    How come none of them ended up in the pool? That would have been a needed reality check for them.

  • tragic

    regardless if you dont like someone or not,dont talk about their child it is the best way to start a fight. Not to mention toya has that keeping up with the Jones’ complex, she mad she lives in the worst area and has the worst life

  • Why are we expecting doctors wives to be held to a higher standard than the average joe’s wife? I work with E.R. doctors mostly men and they are just as messy and gossping as females.

    • Pivyque

      I expect any professional’s wife to behave in public. I don’t care what goes on at home, but at any event where they represent their husband, they need to be on their best behavior.

  • hollyw

    I’m glad she was ashamed of her behavior, though it still seems that after it all, she’s still trying to make Toya responsible for some of her actions. I thought Toya was shady from the first episode when she brought up Quad’s broken engagement at a party (like, who does that??), so it’s clear she’s a trouble-maker. However, Mariah’s mother’s wasn’t much better: “I’m glad you hit her, you did the right thing…” Wait…what? To let someone take you to the point where you’re being kicked out of YOUR birthday party?? Errm, yeah, you lost it, boo.

  • HU_Undergrad

    Prime example as to WHY the students of Howard University did not want this show to air

  • Kitty

    Smh!!! These women disgust me. After the very first show I decided that this Getto mess was an embarrassment. We have to do better than this….

  • HotMess

    Lastly, ask Quad why did she file a restraining order against HER BFF sister. Fight fair not dirty!

  • 2Ja2

    Hard for “us women”…do not lump all women together, hun! I have not fought another woman ever..really, never! Too many young girls think this is how adult women are to behave, too many!

  • HotMess

    The fight was pathetic..Iyanla Vazant best said it last night…People being rewarded for bad behavior. Mariah is trying to blame her child finding out about her dad via Toya, but Mariah mentioned that Aydin adopted her daughter on a earlier episode…Also people, no one force Mariah and her sister to discuss the father issue in front of cameras..Are we really that slow to catch? Lastly, Ms. Lucy had no right to say anything to a grown woman…lastly, it is insulting for someone to purchase an outfit for your child big day…

  • ThatLadyTosh

    I truly believe both were wrong but Toya was eggin it on Mariah tried to walk away and Toya grabbed her arm then threw a drink in her face. I believe that mariah just reacted. Mariah said I’m not going to speak to her about the situation about my daughter tnight at the party. Kari should have kicked both of them out instead of just Mariah. I don’t like what Kari’s husband said about her husband is going to divore her tomorrow.

  • Yay!

    This show should have never aired. A complete waste and mockery of minorities in medicine. Maybe now more folks will sign the petition against this show or better yet, just quit watching and it will hopefully not return after this season.

    • TheTruth

      Just because your husband is a doctor, doesn’t make you a “minority in medicine”. A doctor can marry whoever he or she pleases. And in this case they chose ghetto women. That’s on them. When you see Dr. Simone and Dr. Jackie throwing down at the pool, then we can have a conversation about this show’s negative portrayal of “minorities in medicine”

  • Honesty

    This is one of the reasons why I did not want to see this show. Fighting amongst professionals. Very classy, very classy indeed. Hopefully the reputations of their husbands are not affected by something so child like.

  • Kelsey

    Toya is pathetic.. Mariah clearly gets under her skin bc Mariah is living the life she wants.. Pressuring her damn husband to get a million dollar house.. That man could careless about living that life. Mariah, Mariah is a sad excuse for a Dr’s wife. These women seem to be bore with their lives bc they sure act like it. News flash your bit impressing anyone. Your an embarrassment

  • OhOkay

    I did not see/ do not watch the show but seeing this clip makes me feel sorry for their husbands. I’d imagine you have a certain reputation and image to maintain as a physician especially as you become more seasoned in the medical field. For this to go down in the midst of their colleagues, i’d imagine that is embarrassing especially since that will be the image attached to you when you go to work. And I agree, Mariah’s response seems more like shade rather than an apology. Smh, we’ve got to do better as women. To many odds against us to be acting in such a way.

  • missydsunflower

    I am completely humiliated for these two women, and even more humiliated for their poor husbands who had to have all their colleagues watch their wives act like two dogs in a fight park. SICK TRASH. Moments like these show a person’s true character. Mariah could have chosen to be a lady and walk away, and she didn’t.

  • Kay

    Our ancestors must be very proud.

  • Kellz

    Sounds to me like she’s still takin jabs at the other chick while stating her disappointment in herself. Doesnt seem like much diff than who she is on tv

  • JaneDoe

    I was so embarrassed as I turned off my tv after I watched the fight. Two grown women fighting in ball gowns in front off all those professinals. I would never do that to my husband. Mariah was determined to to be Queen B and she tried it. Her moms whoa.. If she is aware that her mom has behavioral problems she should have not invited her when filming was taking place. The older Dr is my favorite. She is a professional woman even when she isn’t wearing her white jacket. Just not a fan. They come off as ghetto and they try way too hard. There is def a way a lady and even a doctor’s wife should carry herself and those women just aren’t use to living a good life.. Its obvious
