“Married to Medicine” star Dr. Jackie Walters has been getting called out on social media. It’s all because of what will happen on the upcoming episode. On this episode, Jackie calls Buffie Purselle infertile. She says this while giving a speech at an event.

Jackie’s speech was about the struggles she faced beating Breast Cancer. She also said that not having children was painful. Jackie said Buffie can probably relate because she is infertile.

This didn’t sit well with Buffie. It hurt her feelings and she broke down in tears later on. She also had some words for Jackie on Instagram.

Interestingly enough, Jackie doesn’t see an issue with what she said. And she defended herself to Dr. Heavenly Kimes.

    The fact that Jackie can’t even bring herself to see why what she did was wrong and offer a sincere apology makes it malicious.

          Buffie is not her patient. She did not break any HIPPA laws.

            Regardless if she isn’t her patient, it’s not Jackie’s story to tell! Point blank period🙌

            I obviously Jackie story lines in the past season was not worth the pay. She had to beef it up for her to stay or cut pay. She is focusing on not to be let go. But always 💯 remember it can affect her in way she will not win. Be mindful how you treat people. Your action of others will one day bring raft in your life or your family life. #fakechristain

            Jackie as a physician is bound by HIPAA’s confidentiality laws regardless as to whether or not someone is her patient, simply because she has access.

            What most likely is the situation is Jackie knows Buffie isn’t infertile and she made that statement for shock value. If that is the case, it is possible she’s broken the code of ethics which pretty much says you don’t divulge/repeat certain information that might affect someone personally or negatively and definitely for monetary gain.

            Its just sad n unprofessional for Dr Jackie to say such bout Buffie…HIPPA don’t play that..The ladies have gone from being just a DR. 2 being a public figure and it has gone to their heads…they need to be examine

          Jackie, appears to be in a state of low self-esteem, and jealous of the other ladies. She feels desperately to remodel home, new office, and to promote her self by hurting others. If I was one of her patients, I would not trust her with my personal health or business.

        November 9, 2019 at 7:46 pm

        That was just plain evil she can try and explain her intentions any anyway she feels but bottom line she was dead wrong, she knows she was wrong because of the nasty defensive attitude she took, she was trying doo hard for a different storyline but it was a epic fail she may as well stick to just hating and disrespecting Mariah she very good at that and she gets away with it… messy heffa!

      • Linda Jones

      Jackie you were very wrong. Buffy’s issues are her issues and not for you to tell. You had no right to bring in her condition into your speech. You never spoke with her in regards to air condition or how she would feel about talking about it or anything! You may not have said it with malice, but again it was not your story to tell and you need to apologize.

          Buffy put her business on national TV for millions to know and now she wants to cry foul because Dr Jackie brought it up to a room full of people she doesn’t know? If you don’t want anyone to know you inner most personal secrets or feelings then keep them to yourself. If she didn’t appreciate Dr Jackie saying what she said at that particular moment Buffy should have had a conversation with Dr Jackie asking for an explanation and the could have hashed it right there then. Why is it every time something is said and taken out of context it’s automatically deemed throwing shade ? Anything for good ratings I guess.

          • Ugh

            November 17, 2019 at 11:41 am

            Huh? Why are yall not understanding how Jackie is wrong? Buffie isn’t even infertile. So why would she be okay with Jackie telling a room full of strangers that she is? There’s no way to defend Jackie here. Just stop.

      • Lucy

        November 9, 2019 at 9:19 am

        I agree. It sure wasn’t Jackie’s story to tell. She should most definitely apologize to Buffie.

      November 8, 2019 at 6:13 pm

      Jackie you were wrong you know it. don’t try to pathetically back out of it. familiar yourself with the Hippa law as a doctor I can’t believe you don’t have it down. Empathize with somebody sharing a story or a sisterhood is not OK to share medical info. whether or not she decides to share it on the show is her business and only hurt business. Jackie you should be humiliated and ashamed of yourself you’re a horrible person.

        If I was Buffy, I would find a way to sue her. Isn’t that a violation of the HIPPA Code or something?? Jackie is becoming venomous just like those 2 chicks that she hangs out with. Buffie has been pregnant but Jackie’s mean a-s can’t get pregnant. Two different things.

      Jackie really thinks she’s perfect and in reality she is far from it with her miserable behind and why do she need that big house when she has no kids, no grandkids, she doesn’t even have a dog it’s crazy to see somebody so accomplish be so insecure and outhe here competing to Be the Jones

    • Tracy Ewing

      November 9, 2019 at 8:03 pm

      Could this be a HIPAA violation? But, then Buffie’s sharing on TV her situation. If that were me, I’d pull her to side, tell her the results, AND let her make that decision as to whether or not she wants to share. I’d hate to believe that Jackie is that aloof and remiss. I’m hoping she has a method to her madness.

      She does not owe her an apology the facts are the facts. While she may not be fertile, she cant have children.Drs think in scientific terms….if she apologizes it would mean she was being malicious. I don’t think she meant to hurt her feelings. She had no reason to

        November 12, 2019 at 6:45 am

        The nerve of you talking about facts when you don’t even know that infertile means not being able to conceive. Buffie can conceive. Buffie can get pregnant and has been, that’s not being infertile. If you hurt someone’s feelings, you apologize if you’re a decent human being.

      • Katy Louu

        November 12, 2019 at 7:32 am

        LOL! If Buffie can get pregnant, but just can’t carry a child to term, then scientifically she isn’t infertile.

        What woman would would seek Jackie out for any type of treatment if she doesn’t know the fundamental difference between being infertile/barren or unable to conceive vs unable to carry? That is a huge difference. That would be professional suicide/aka destroying ones own career.

    Jackie is such good friends with heavenly because she is just like heavenly. Birds of a ghetto tacky judgmental feather flock together. At first I didn’t think Jackie made the comment about Buffie to be malicious, but then I thought about her podcast where she implied that Mariah is a drug addict. Jackie is very condescending to the ladies that she doesn’t like and she is fake as h***. Looking like Shadow Man from Princess and the frog.

    November 8, 2019 at 2:38 pm

    If Jackie has no sympathy or empathy with regards to her statement, and mind you this is something that is hurtful to her so it shouldn’t be a stretch, then imo she is definitely a broken person and all we can do is pray for her. In the meantime though, I definitely wouldn’t seek medical advice/treatment from someone in the field with this mindset with regards to something so sensitive.

    • Mgloston

      November 8, 2019 at 3:53 pm

      I guess from the little we know from the upcoming episode, Dr. Jackie was trying to relate to Buffie and I dont think she meant on the context of coming off as rude or being mean. To me that would mean Dr Jackie had an issue with Bufffie we had yet to see to cause her to say that about the woman’s business in a malicious way. Sometimes people think in their head they are doing or saying something nice but it doesn’t translate that way when speaking. In this case Dr. Jackie could have just kept that feeling and thought to herself and share with Buffie one on one.

    Dr. Jackie needs to own up to what she said even if she was not trying to be malicious. That was something very personal and private so Dr. Jackie should have asked Blufie if she could share that information to the whole world. Dr. Jackie don’t know if Buffie still struggle with something so heavy .You are wrong Dr.Jackie and lately you been wrong to your friends. It’s ok to be wrong and to apologize.

  10. Shenita Smith

    Question. Couldn’t this be considered a HIPAA violation. Even if she is not or was not her patient, she divulged sensitive information. I wondered how many patients have jumped ship. Doesn’t sound like she can be trusted.

  11. Garrie McKenzie

    November 8, 2019 at 5:02 pm

    Jackie! Jackie! Jackie! I use to have much respect for her. Jackie seems troubled inside of her heart and marriage. She does not seem to be as happy as she portrays herself. Jackie is a mean-spirited person and her words to Buffie just shows how malicious and heartless she is. She need to sit her tiny brown self down and talk about her own issues. Jackie portrays herself as bully as long as dirty-mouth Heavenly is there to encourage her. Buffie you handled that situation well!Kudos to you.

  12. Johnnie

    November 8, 2019 at 5:31 pm

    She can’t be trusted. It may not technically be a HIPPA violation, but then again it probably is, because physicians and all healthcare personnel are held to a higher standard when it comes to people’s personal medical history. And Jackie didn’t like Mariah talking about Jackie’s infidelity oh, she was really pissed about that, and yet she doesn’t understand how this makes Buffy feel. Maybe Jackie is just jealous that Buffy is not infertile Buffy can’t carry children to term. Big difference.and maybe Jack is jealous that Buffy’s husband is open to adoption, where as Jackie’s husband is open to other woman. Just saying.

    Jackie is bitter about her own personal medical issue. Cancer took away her chance to ever become a mother. I would Sue her a-s for running her mouth putting my business out there it’s not public knowledge it’s private bcuz it’s medical.Whatever I shared with someone is one thing but to put it out there in front all those strangers shame on you. You’re hateful spiteful b-tch u’re a covert nasssacist you’re would have been a sorry a-s mother anyway no wonder your husband cheated!!!!!!! Lol

    We have HIPPA LAWS that she knows not to share information about a patients medical status. If I was Buffie I would sue Jackie from breaching that law. And saying a woman is infertile or have infertility issue isn’t like calling you black. How can you compare color with unable to conceive a baby? For a Woman with so much education your really a dummy, especially to go on a platform and tell somebody else’s issues.

  23. Lost All Respect

    November 9, 2019 at 12:08 pm

    Whether Buffy was Jackie’s patient or not as a doctor she has a moral and ethical obligation not to disclose that type of information without express or written permission. Jackie was wrong point-blank and it should be a red flag on her professional career as to how far she is willing to go for storyline to stay revolute. Misery loves company. Medical Ethic Board Review Needed!!!

    November 9, 2019 at 9:00 pm

    Jackie had no right to say anything about another woman unless given permission. There is no excuse. Jackie is wrong on every level. Even though Buffie is not Jackie’s patient, Jackie knows better and if I were her patient it would cause concern for my privacy

    Dr. Jackie should not have disclosed a patients medical condition to anyone. That information is protected by HIPPA. She has a lot of nerve referring toBuffy as a “toxic friendship” because she disclosed private medical information to a room full of strangers. You are lucky Buffy didn’t sue you. Shame on you Dr. Jackie!
