Married To Medicine’s Quad And Dr. Simone Explain Why All Atlanta Women Talk Like Gay Men

May 13, 2014  |  

Have you ever noticed whenever you’re watching Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta, Real Housewives of Atlanta or Married to Medicine, all the Atlanta reality TV socialites talk like gay men? When Quad and Dr. Simone from the latter Bravo TV show stopped by the office, we had to ask them about this over-the-top trend and particularly whether they’ve personally received any backlash as a number of gay Black men have requested that women such as themselves stop stealing their lingo.

We also asked Dr. Simone how the medical community reacts to their reality shenanigans and if they’re ever embarrassed by their own behavior. Unsurprisingly, they tried to downplay their messiness as only they can. Check out the video above to hear all they had to say. Are you over Atlanta women talking like gay men?

Tune in for new episodes of Bravo’s Married to Medicine each Sunday at 9:00pm ET/PT.

    I’ve been living in Atl for over a year now and I cringe at the way some people talk and behave. Not just in an exaggerated effeminate way, amongst gays: but the use of slang and profanity with a harsh southern drawl bothers me the most. Its just too much. However, I was born and raised in Philly-and there’s some flamboyant and slang use there too but its not as widespread. It just depends on who and what you choose to surround yourself with. I’m sick of us as black people to keep getting lumped together. Whenever something negative is said or done its applied to all of us. NOT. There is good and bad everywhere, and well-spoken versus hood-fab people in every city. Not just Atl.

  • Just saying!!

    I thought gay men were copying them? I’m so confused!!

  • Teena BrownSuga Brannon

    I can’t stand it, and frankly it’s embarrassing that the public perception of the black woman is that she is a gay black man “hunty”. Cut it out already ladies!

    This article is a piece of SH** and completely inaccurate. ALL black women in Atlanta do not talk like gay men. WTF.

    First I want to say “that $hit ain’t cute”. Also, the only black women from Atlanta I’ve heard talk like gay men are the ones I see on television. Why are they talking about ALL in the title of this article?

    Quad needs a makeover. Her hair is always a mess.

    But don’t gay men usually rip off the black woman’s lingo? Did I miss something?


    I could care less

    I thought gay men try to sound like women

    These clowns need to speak for themselves…we don’t talk like that, they do!

      Unfortunately Atl is portrayed as the chicken heads of the country, but the problem is that you have a ton of ppl supporting these actions and shows in atlanta, which will continue to to have ppl view atlanta this way. I’m from NYC and they’re shows like this about NYC as well. The good thing is, is that a lot of NYers won’t support it as MUCH and only a few make it through. We all have to get together and make a stand about how we are viewed on these stations. If not, this will keep continuing. I know i’m going to hear that we may be taking money out of ppl mouths and so on, but I would rather have my mom work as a cook then an escort.

    I dislike yassss, werk and hunty omg it’s annoying

      Gosh thank you. It makes my skin crawl…….. anytime the Rico Chapelle guy comes on I switch channels, especially when he’s with Quad.

  • deebeezy

    Ummm! I am offended at the notion that Atlanta women talk like ‘GAY MEN’. Let’s rephrase that. Some southern gay men are feminine and flamboyant, from their clothes to the heels and makeup etc. Why would you say that these women are mimicking them and not the other way around?

    • Dmax Lomax

      If it walks and talks like a duck, it’s a chicken, lol. Seriously, our ppl today are more intelligent than ever, but just as dumb as ever. Unfortunately they mostly show the weakestdumbest on TV and our children as well as adults are soaking this up like a sponge.

  • Mrs.Mason

    I wish they would act like the strong black women they portray to be instead of the gay lingo thing…its tiring!

  • coolyfett

    Its like a whole other language. Many of the posters here use the gay black man lingo also. Phrases like…..well I wont say em, but its a strange thing.
