“Married to Medicine” will have another controversial episode. On the upcoming episode, Dr. Jackie Walters upsets Buffie Purselle. This occurs as Jackie is speaking at an event. She goes into detail about being a Breast Cancer survivor. While discussing her experience, she talks about how disappointing it has been to not be able to have children.

After this is said, she calls out Buffie. She says she knows Buffie can relate because Buffie is infertile. Buffie was hurt and some of the other cast members felt like Jackie crossed the line to say this in a room full of people that Buffie didn’t know.

Buffie has since slammed Jackie on social media. She also said that she is not infertile. And that she is able to get pregnant and has had miscarriages. However, Jackie has defended her actions and she said she was not trying to be malicious. In a new interview, Jackie says Buffie has blocked her on Instagram. And the backlash Jackie has been receiving has been hurtful.

    Girl BYE!!! Hate that she caused Buffie that type of pain my a-s! She knew exactly what she was doing! It’s obvious Heavenly wasn’t around during this interview otherwise her answer would’ve been totally Different. And there go Heavenly being messy as usual forwarding the post. That’s all the sloppy b-tch is good for on this show is being messy and being a complete a-s.

      Jackie’s definitely messy but very slick about it and has always been that way. As a professional woman with “a title” she should’ve had respect for Buffie besides that was very personal. Dr. Jackie you hit below the belt. #NO❤from#me

          Get rid of Dr. Jackie. I’m fed up with her holier than tho attitude. She’s still so insecure that her hubby has an affair. She needs to address her own mental health issues because she’s always in attack mode. She no longer has a story line anyway. Who gives a rats A$$ about the renovation of her home. If this is all she has to offer, hire me. I’m thinking about redoing my bathroom 🙄

            She wants her truth heard, but wasnt interested in Mariahs. Jackie got too into the spotlight and in Quads lie, lie, lie attitude. Her and Quad can go and be replaced with professional medical women.

          Dr Jackie is a professional and she knows the laws you at not suppose to go tell a patient medical illnesses and to do it in public is not right at all!

        Jackie was once the Dd. With class. Now she violating HIPPA laws and having Vagina parties. Disgusting, there’s a time and place for everything. Had she focused on her Vagand given her husband some maybe we wouldn’t be watching this mess. They need to recast Heavenly, Quad and V-gina Jackie.

      Hi Dr.Jackie
      I WANTED TO LET YOU KNOW THAT YOU ARE 5HE MOST AWSOME AND BLESS PERSON AND A VERY STRONG BLACK WOMAN. I AM A BIG FAN OF THE SHOW, I WANT to say that all the ladies are beautiful stay tight with each other.

    • SayWhat

      November 15, 2019 at 8:43 am

      Shady boot, I agree. Jackie knew what she was doing. The only that bothered bothered Jackie is the backlash. She is use to being the matriarch of the show. The responsible one, the peacekeeper, she cannot tolerate the backlash. Heavenly, is messy as f..k. to show her the post & to co-sign that what Jackie did to Buffie is the same as saying Heavenly is black. Doesn’t she see, if Heavenly is in a roomful of strangers, everyone can see that she is black. So, if Jackie, said she is black, she is just stating the obvious. If Buffie is in a roomful of stangers, no one can see that she is infertile. Her infertility (I know Buffie said she us not infertile) is not obvious. No one would know unless they are told. Jackie must think the viewers are stupid. She and that duck mouth Heavenly are messy. I hope the backlash stay on her neck. Hopefully, her stoic butt, will losen up.

        I am so happy Jackie is getting her pay back.
        As far as Buffy she is still young and Jackie can for get it she is to old. She is so much older then the other ladies.
        And as far as Heavenly no body what her fat but and her husband.

      I really feel sorry for Heavenly, pure hate is a part of her make up. Have you noticed that she only comes for Mariah when disrespecting someone’s mother, she’s jealous of the close relationship that Mariah has with her mom, and also the relationship with her sister. The mental stability goes really deep with Heavenly, it is so very sad. Can she be helped? I really hope so, for the sake of her children who she disrespects on the regular. Praying for Heavenly & her family. Has anyone noticed that her son’s would rather not have anything to do with the show? Smart young men!! Jackie now has an audience of one, and that is, psycho Heavenly with a disrespectful drill, always digging, digging and digging!!!

      Dr. Jackie was a B-tch for saying what she did, i so hate her this season, she seems like she has gone to the Dark side with Quad and Devily….lol

    • That Girl

      November 16, 2019 at 8:17 am

      I agree, Heavenly and Dr. Jackie are very messy and full of sh-t! Dr.Jackie is so fake with a capital F, Dog not wolf in sheep’s clothing. Perfect example of that saying “Misery loves company” so sad.

    If the apologies she offered Buffie are anything like the one we saw in that preview, I can understand why Buffie hasn’t forgiven Jackie. Jackie acts like she’s incapable of really caring about anyone else’s feelings but her own.

    • Mo

      November 14, 2019 at 10:42 pm

      If i was buffie i would accept the apology on camera ( only) she can use those Bravo checks to help her with her journey. Jacki is dead wrong and its not worth a friendship with her. Respect is non factor for Jacki

      • Queen Mortician

        November 15, 2019 at 5:43 am

        Its deeper than a check. She has a situation with someone’s husband. Let us not forget Dr. Jackie came from a place of hurt. Hurt people hurt other people. Money isn’t everything!

    Jackie has been messy since season one. It’s not that people were too fast to react. We’ve just been paying attention. If anyone is still trying to explain why she did what she did and make sense out of it, seems like that person hasn’t been paying attention and buys into Jackie’s god complex.

    • Amina

      November 18, 2019 at 3:38 pm

      You are absolutely right on Jackie has been a B-tch since the show started she’s phony and since she has no real story line she’s gotten to be a lot more shady I remember when she suggested to the others to kick Mariah off the show and she was not seen for several seasons I think Jackie wants to be the focus and it’s showing her in a very bad light…I’ve notice since she got back with that cheating husband of hers she’s not showing any respect and trying to out do everyone why buying a house and renovating it??? needs a story line in addition to that book.. and I wonder what Dr Simone will say to her IJS

  4. Anony

    November 14, 2019 at 3:22 pm

    Now Jackie aka Shadow Man, see how Mariah has felt all these years. Heavenly is trash. She already poisoned Quad against Mariah, now she working on turning Jackie against Simone. I actually like Buffie because she ain’t afraid to go up against the Bullies in this group.

    Yes!!! you guys Jackie is a messy bi-ch. Don’t get it twisted. She’s a pot stirring a-s slick as a can of oil, frying chicken a-s slick bi-ch. She’s very unhappy. i damm near feel sorry for her….NOT!!! PAY attention.

  6. Cynthia

    November 14, 2019 at 4:24 pm

    Jackie has always been messy, no body really was paying attention. Mariah called her out first. She’s been slick at the mouth for awhile but act like she’s above it all. In my Mariah voice , you slip is showing and it’s about time!!

      Jackie should be sued.

        Take her a-s to court. Jackie fired

        • Tonya Marie

          November 15, 2019 at 9:41 pm

          Ok, Dr. Jackie wouldn’t look at Mariah’s test results because it might lead to further questions. Yeah sho ya right! Test results have a date on them, as well as, the name of the lab. As revealed by Dr. Eugene. Dr. Jackie should read up on HIPPA…. As a doctor, she should well know that a person’s health info is their own personal story to be shared at that person’s discretion.

      Jackie is slick and sneaky. She needs to worry about her own house and her still sneaky a-s husband.

    People have placed Jackie on a pedestal and she doesn’t realize its crumbling. She imagined she was so high up that she could say or do anything and it not bite her. And now that she is bitten, she is too stubborn to admit where she has been wrong. The fall from grace usually begins with ones own actions or mouth and Jackie is a good example.

  8. Debbera Coleman

    November 14, 2019 at 5:10 pm

    She was wring. Dr Jackie. Not suppose to discuss pts history or diagnosis. She could get sued for that. She put her in front street, without even asking Deepermission. Omg !!!

    I have watched M2M since day one and what I have said from Day1 is my Sorority Sis Jackie is my least favorite. How did she become known as the peace maker in the group when she is the biggest sh!t stirrer and elitist on the show. I think Jackie is the least authentic on the show. Can u ever admit you are wrong. Bye Jackie

    November 14, 2019 at 6:56 pm

    I think jackie is jealous of simones friendship with buffie. I agree with the post that said theres so many needy children she could have adopted or being agyn she now the oter alternative Smh

    Heavenly is a mean and messy trouble maker & had this been her in Buffy’s seat, she’d react totally different


      November 15, 2019 at 8:19 am

      Have you noticed Heavenly is starting to look like Quad

  13. Deborah Sharpe

    November 14, 2019 at 7:38 pm

    Dr. Jackie was definitely out of line. It wasn’t her business to share her personal business. Keep the focus on herself.

  14. Lois Cox

    November 14, 2019 at 8:19 pm

    Jackie divulged what was supposed to b private m confidential information about a patient. That’s a HIPPA violation n coild cause her serious problems with her licensure!!!!!

    November 14, 2019 at 8:55 pm

    Jackie was wrong and she is also very two face she is no real friend Dr. HEAVENLY she is a mess all by herself I wouldn’t mind if she left the show

    November 14, 2019 at 9:10 pm

    Jackie NOBODY cares that your feelings are hurt. What you did was atrocious, mean spirited and ugly. SHAME ON YOU to call yourself a woman of empowerment. Your true character is seeping through those cracks baby.

    November 15, 2019 at 4:52 am

    I care very much so Jackie is feeling hurt. I don’t think she said it to be mean. Buffie is taking this to an whole nother level to get a story line. She’s not hurt, she just need a story line. Buffie said it best, she’s not infertile she just can’t carry a baby full term. I wish both the lady success and hope they can get pass this. Dr. Jackie we love you. You have your story line someone trying to build on what you said to stay on the show. Buffie you set up Toya, with one of your friend. Who do that, inviting someone over to get insulted, you the one messy. I believe Jackie was coming from a good place with this, and surely don’t think she said it to mean.

    • Valerie Willis

      November 15, 2019 at 7:29 am

      Hello Adrienne
      I agree with you,I don’t think Jackie was trying to be hurtful at all. I am sorry that Buffie got hurt, but now she knows how her friend made Toya feel. I see a lot of problems with this one. Buffie.

      • Shannon

        November 15, 2019 at 8:34 am

        Are you really comparing Jackie wrongly calling Buffie infertile in a room full of strangers to Joseline acting a fool for five seconds of relevancy? Move on. Even Toya has moved on and said that what Jackie did here was wrong.

      Dr Jackie practice isn’t successful because she is the only doctor in Atlanta but because of her character and integrity. This is reality TV and things get cut up the way they want it to in order to get ratings. The statement that Dr Jackie made happened months ago in Buffie face and she decides to react today? Dr Jackie didn’t mean it like most people are making it and she did apologize. We all make mistake.. Dr Jackie you apologize and you can’t control if buffie will accept it but God forgives you and that’s all that matters.. Love you doctor Jackie

      • Shannon

        November 15, 2019 at 8:39 am

        What character and integrity does Jackie have? She’s been a mean girl since the show’s first season. And this is not editing. Jackie just doesn’t care about other people’s feelings and never has. I mean was it editing when Jackie called Toya fat a couple of seasons ago? Was it editing when Jackie laughed at Lisa’s marriage problems? Was it editing when Jackie compared Mariah to a STD? Was it editing when Jackie told Heavenly to write on Mariah’s poster at the reunion? Was it editing when Jackie repeated the drug accusations about Mariah as fact when she knows better? And was it editing when Jackie refused to look at Mariah’s test results when other doctors had no issue doing so? Heavenly has already said that Jackie is one of the messiest on the show but she actually gets the best edit while the rest of them don’t get that kind of protection.

          Jackie is jealous Mariah the other ladies not her hater partners heavenly and quad. Because look at her marriage and look at her true-life. All she has going on for her is being a Doctor she has no joy in her life. Neither does Quad Nora Heavenly that’s why they go after people
          who or happy and have a life like Buffy and Mariah.

      November 15, 2019 at 8:33 am

      Yeah, I think you’re part of the problem Adrienne. People like you have placed Jackie on this pedestal and act like she can do wrong. What you’re doing is no short of idolatry. Let’s be clear, do you have any idea how painful it is for a woman to have a miscarriage? Well, Buffie has been through it more than once. It’s very hurtful for a woman to actually lose a baby. Women never get over it either. It’s one of the most painful things a woman can ever experience. Jackie has never lost a baby before. But instead of being empathetic regardless of not experiencing that herself, she’s incorrectly using the term infertile in Buffie’s case when she’s supposed to be a doctor. Jackie also can’t understand why it’s poor etiquette to bring up another woman’s fertility in a room full of strangers. She has all that education but no common sense or common decency. How embarrassing. She’s wrong period just like you’re wrong to accuse a woman grieving the loss of her babies of faking her feelings for a storyline. You ought to be ashamed of yourself. It’s disgusting what some of you will say to defend reality stars.

      This is the twilight zone. No woman would be okay with being called “infertile” in front of a group of women. Buffie is also the only example she used. It was awkward, malicious and calculated.
