Melody Holt is having a tough season of “Love & Marriage: Huntsville.” Her marriage to Martell Holt isn’t in the best place. Martell was having an affair with another woman for about three years. And there have been plenty of rumors regarding the situation.

Melody also isn’t in the best place with the other couples on the show. On the most recent episode, she said that Martell didn’t start cheating until they started hanging out with the Scott couples. Fans of the show have been very opinionated about this. And Melody has responded to the criticism.

    Girl, either put up with your husbands bullsh-t,or decide you are worth more than what his doing to you. You are not the only women in this world who’s Husband had cheated on her. He’s been messing with this other women for three years. To me that’s serious. You need make your mind up to devoice his a-s. or stay with someone who as lost all respect for you. Stop being stupid. I know u still love him, but this man has stumped all over your love.

      Melody is not likeable or a person I would trust or want to be friend with. That does not excuse her husband disrespecting her. Guarantee you she would be hard to live with – still no need for him to “step out”. When you get tired – LEAVE. And, I am so tired of reality shows that end up being negative. Why these “so called” professional upper middle class/wealthy African American couples (not only Love & Marriage Huntsville but all of the Bravo shows) have to go on TV airing their “dirty” laundry is beyond me. Couples have always had issues in their marriages but for additional income to reveal your personal dirt, drama, trials & tribulations has got to stop. None of you are going to end up happy. Go home and have a seat.

        Mary, I couldn’t agree with you more. What does it profit a man to gain the world & lose his soul?

        They are perpetuating a cycle.

      Its easy for you to pass judgment then to allow this woman to decide whats good for her and her family. No one has that right. Your experience isn’t the same as the next person. Melody follow your heart.

    I think it’s clear as day that Melody is over this show. Martell is responsible for his own behavior. I get that she’s upset that these people knew he had been cheating for three years (LaTisha and Marsau) but never told Melody and decided to be shady about it on the show for a storyline when their marriage isn’t perfect either. But she can’t blame anyone else but Martell for what he chose to do for three years.

      I believe Marsau and his brother knew and maybe some other men, , but no way I believe LaTisha knew he was cheating for3 year’s.

    Peer influences and blaming aren’t the same? Either way, Martell is old enough that he shouldn’t be influenced by anyone. He’s not a child.

      Martell is a grown man and he knew what he was doing when he stepped out. Noone can make you cheat. Its a CHOICE. He stated he cheated because his wife was taking care of him as a wife. He went looking for a companion to fulfill what his wife ” stated” she was not doing it.
      Martell need to grow up and state that he sis what he dis becuase he wanted to. STOP BLAMING OTHERS FIR YOUR ACTION. THREE YEARS.. you know what you are doing. Mel is in denial.

    LOOK! Your huzzband had cheating tendencies when you married him. He very arrogant and feels he’s a legend in hiz own mind. No way, can you blame his infidelity on hang’n with any group of people. “He is who he is.” The problem is that he was caught once again. Otherwise, he would still be creep’n. You’re not the 1st and damn ‘sho won’t be the last. Meley Mel! Keep hope aluve.

    Gurl get yo life! Your huzzband had these tendencies when you walked down the aisle. Don’t blame others due to the infidelity of your arrogant huzzband who is still a little boy. He’s bothered he got caught for the umteenth time. Misery lives company. Melly Mel, you keep hope alive. It ain’t over till it’s over!

    Melody is wrong for trying to blame Martell’s cheating on someone else because he’s a grown man and he knew exactly what he was doing.He’s been involved with this woman for several years and seems like he’s still involved with her.Now all of a sudden they are trying to blame someone else.Whether the other men were cheating or not that has nothing to do Martell cheating.Now that it’s out they are trying to put the blame on someone else.Melody should be ashamed of herself.She wants to act so uppity all the time.Maybe she should have been doing some of the things that he asked her to do instead of refusing him she basically pushed him to get involved with another woman.Yes it’s wrong to cheat but if you are not satisfying your man he’s most likely going to find it elsewhere so she’s to blame also.

      No way!!!!!. Marriage is for better or worse.
      But cheating is in the Bible. Thou shall not commit adulty. So how is this her fault too?Girl please, u must not be married. Just the thought of my husband cheating, being with another woman for three years, would devastate me to no end. That shouldn’t be my fault. That’s his fault. Don’t get it twisted.

      Chile bye. Melody is not to blame for this grown a-s man cheating. He cheated because he wanted to. Marriage will have ups and downs but you never have an excuse to cheat. I’m sure Melody hasn’t gotten all her needs met by Martell at times but she wasn’t out here cheating. So no. Just like Melody can’t blame Marsau and Maurice, you can’t blame Melody for Martell cheating.

    I understand and admire Melody. She only said that her husband was trying to require of her the same things as the husbands of the other wives. She said that she could not fulfill all the requirements placed on the other wives. She felt he was comparing and expecting things the other wives were doing.

Martell stated Mel waa not taking care if him in the bedroom, so he went and found what he was missing. Mel is in denial. Your husband stepped out NOONE CAN MAKE YOU DO ANYTHING.

      What do you think Mel is in denial about? She is the only REAL person in the group. Latisha? That’s denial.

        Then “me” you may need to ck your DENIAL METER. Mel is NOT the only real person in the group. She’s very pretentious. Ain’t nothing real ’bout that.

    I’m actually embarrassed for Melody she is doing everything in her power not to face the truth about Martell. She sounds so foolish trying to deflect blame girl wake up your husband is solely responsible for his own actions.

    I like the show because it shows the life of working afro-black marriage s. Martell is a very handsome man as well as the 2 brothers. Melody is very pretty as is Kimmi. LaTisha has a whipped look about her and she sounds it also. What is on Melody’s mind is the visual of her husband touching another woman. He as been intimate with a woman and then put it on her. It Melody had been with another man,sucked his d-ck then came home and kissed him in the mouth, how would he feel about her. This had been going on for a minute. He knows that he is married each time he slides up in another a-s. If the 2 brothers are cheating on their wife’s that’s a hot f-ck n shame! As I watch the show I pray for a happy ending for all.

    I enjoy the show and I am thankful that OWN has provided different perspectives regarding friendship & marriage. I enjoy others viewpoints as it relates to various topics and how they each deal with emotions, obstacles, running a household, operating a business, blending a family, addressing infidelity, and pregnancy. Although an individual may have a different coping technique from my own or may have a different viewpoint, does not mean that individual is not valid with what he or she is feeling.
    Cheating is terrible and unacceptable. It is a choice that was made by Martel; however, if the still love one another and choose to want to be married then both of them should engage in marriage & family counseling or couples counseling. There is a crack in their foundation. They are preparing to bring another life into this world.

    Martell and Melody are my favorite couple on this show. I really hope that Martell actually gets his stuff together and they work things out. He knows that the “peasant” can’t offer anything other than a romp in the hay. If she were anything otherwise, he would have left Melody.

    Am I my brothers keeper is really what this episode was about. Yes you are. But I am not blaming Marsau and Maurice for Martell’s behavior because at the end of the day, Martell is a grown man and they can’t MAKE him do anything.

    When these allegations of cheating first came to the attention of the viewers, the Scott brothers and their partners pretended to know nothing about it. Now they all knew all along and I can see where Melody feels they were all laughing behind her back. I don’t blame the Holts for throwing peeps under the bus. Should a friend tell a friend if their spouse is cheating? And if the answer is yes, why didn’t Latisha go to her “good friend” Melody.

    We all know that the goal of reality shows is to create drama even at the risk of destroying peoples lives. I loved the first few episodes where Melody had put this behind her and was on a mission of show what a dynamic business woman, wife and mother she is while LaTisha and Kimmie where grappling for relevance. Lets get back to that because it too is reality.

      Perhaps, I missed that, but why did you say Tisha knew and she was crying to Melody that a real friend would tell if her husband was fooling around. I just can’t see sweet and backward Latisha keeping that info and her husband wouldn’t dare share that with her.. Now that is my opinion.

        When Melody and LaTisha met at the restaurant, Latisha made the statement herself that everyone knew and that it was rumored that the other woman and Martell were driving “twin cars…Mercedes (I can’t recall the exact model).

        Also during that conversation Melody threw out there that Marsau was cheating and that is when LaTisha made that comment.
