Alex Martinez/Bravo(NEW YORK) — Married to Medicine fans were shocked when they learned that former best friends Quad Webb-Lunceford and Mariah Huq were now enemies. With so much back and forth, viewers were left confused as to why the relationship broke down. Still, Webb-Lunceford tells ABC News Radio why she thinks their relationship deteriorated.
“I think she became a bit jealous and a bit envious of the position that I have within in Married to Medicine,” Webb-Lunceford says. “I think she thought that she was supposed to be the breakout star of the show. I think she worked hard at it in getting the show to where it is. And I had always commended her for that and I never discredited her. But I think when it was noted that I was the breakout star of the show, it was way too much for her to take.”
“She did not expect that. She wanted that to be her,” Webb-Lunceford added.
Webb-Lunceford, who is married to psychiatrist Dr. Gregory Lunceford, also said she was extremely hurt by the things Huq said about her on the show’s first season.
“[Huq] was on the…deck with her husband and she noted, ‘You can take the girl out the ghetto, but you can’t take the ghetto out the girl.’ And they were talking about me. They said my name. And that was just baffling to me because…I’ve never been nothing but you’re friend and a number one supporter,” Webb-Lunceford explains. “…And for her to turn around and put that on me, I was like, ‘Wow.’ Especially since she had just gotten into a poolside brawl. How dare you call me ghetto?”
Webb-Lunceford was referencing last season’s blow out fight between Huq and co-star Toya Bush-Harris.
Still, if fans were sick of that drama, it didn’t stop when it came to Dr. Simone Whitmore and her husband, Cecil, who have been married for 16 years and have two sons. Their seemingly strong marriage seemed to be on the rocks this season.
“Our marital struggles came as a result of the financial struggles that I was having in my [OBGYN medical] practice,” she explains to ABC News Radio. “Anytime you are going through a personal or professional turmoil it affects your house even if you think it doesn’t.”
Dr. Whitmore adds that her marriage and medical practice is now better after suffering some financial hiccups due to changing her medical billing system.
Bravo’s Married to Medicine returns Sunday at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT.
