On the recent episode of “Married to Medicine,” Toya and Eugene have some tension over their perceptions of Eugene’s work-life balance. Toya feels Eugene works too much. And his hectic schedule makes it hard for him to spend enough time with their children. However, Eugene doesn’t want it to be framed as if he’s not around enough. So their conversation doesn’t go too far. 

And although Contessa and Heavenly appeared to be working towards fixing their friendship, it goes left once Damon gets involved. He attempts to tell both Heavenly and Contessa that their fallout shouldn’t have happened. However, Contessa feels as if Damon is lecturing her and low-key siding with Heavenly. So a blowup ensues between Contessa and Heavenly once again. 

Here’s a recap for, “The Oh! Shot.”

  1. Why is Quad there?
    Shes phony and dramatic. Is she truly friends with anyone or is it because her show was cancelled.
    Anila, just takes air time

  2. A lot of people praise Damon but I think he can be patronizing to women. To start off his speech saying that men all get along and don’t say anything mean to each other is a lie and s-xist. We just saw Kiran talk crazy to Eugene because he felt like it. I mean Damon talked crazy to Aydin and tried to fight him. Men absolutely do fight and talk crazy to each other all the time. Also, saying that Contessa and Heavenly’s fallout was bs was dismissive of Contessa’s feelings. It wasn’t the right word to use. If someone is hurt, respect it. That’s it. Don’t downplay it. I’m not sure why people don’t understand the concept.

    Damon speaks to Heavenly like a child. Contessa doesn’t have to be okay with that when he attempts to do the same with her. I understand some black women like that kind of treatment, especially religious ones. But it needs to be understood that we all don’t feel that way. I have a father already. I don’t need my husband or anyone else to be my parent. It’s something about Damon and Heavenly’s marriage that I just do not admire or envy. It’s very umm…misogynistic. And it explains why Heavenly acts the way she does. My opinion: she has a lot to say about the other women because she can’t be as expressive at home.

    Damon can do as he’s been doing and check his wife since that is the arrangement they have. But he does not have a right to check someone else’s wife. Contessa is not Heavenly. He needs to respect that. And let them figure out their issues if they choose to. They aren’t children and do not require his input.

    Sorry for the long comment.

    1. Well said. When you’re a black woman who has agency over yourself and you don’t subscribe to the outdated and misogynistic standards of marriage, you’ll see plenty of red flags with Damon and Heavenly. Unfortunately, we still have a long way to go because a lot of our sisters thought it was cute seeing Damon telling women to be quiet and seeing Heavenly sitting in the car like a child in timeout in fear of angering him. One sister even gushed because he still opened the door for her after talking to her like she was his child. I couldn’t help but cringe at the tweets last night.

  3. I was really surprised to hear Damon speak up because he usually allow Heavenly to act out & say anything out of her mouth. When he does try to redirect her, she doesn’t pay him any attention.I actually feel embarrassed for him at times. What makes him think his wife saying all of those awful things about Contessa’s marriage was BS. Oh honey she defintely crossed the line. The things she says are hurtful. It would’ve taken me sometime before accepting an apology from her because when she apologizes, she doesn’t mean it. She turns right around & does the same thing again & double down with it!!

  4. I think Damon can’t lecture anybody as long as he’s married to Heavenly. She is the meanest cast member there. Heavenly does foul stuff, apologizes, then repeats. I don’t blame Contessa for shutting it down. Don’t act like you’re full of wisdom when your wife is messy for pay and social media popularity.
