Melody Shari and Martell Holt’s breakup was a hot topic.

Love & Marriage: Hunstville” stars Melody Shari and Martell Holt had a very controversial breakup. Melody alleged that Martell cheated on her with multiple women. And he had one woman, in particular, he had been sleeping with for years. At the height of the pandemic, Martell began leaving the house. Although he told Melody he was only going to the gym, she suspected he was cheating on her again. So she filed for divorce. Martell later confirmed he had a baby on the way. Unsurprisingly, a messy split has transitioned into a messy co-parenting relationship. In fact, things became so contentious that Melody refused to film scenes with Martell on the recent season. However, she invited him on her vacation with their children once things improved with their co-parenting. Martell has since sued Melody for full custody.

Martell said he filed for full custody because he takes issue with Melody’s brother Marcus Minnified babysitting the Holt kids. Marcus is gay. And this is why Melody has accused Martell of being homophobic. Some fans agreed with this and created a petition calling for Martell to be fired from the show. However, Carlos King made it clear that Martell won’t be fired. He said Melody and Martell’s story is one of the reasons LAMH became a massive hit.

Carlos King spoke his mind in a deleted scene from the LAMH reunion.

Despite how messy the breakup was for Martell and Melody, Carlos had some interesting things to say in a deleted scene from the reunion. While speaking to Melody and Martell, Carlos said that he thinks they were made for each other.

“But at one point in time, you two were madly in love with each other. Y’all were best friends. I think y’all can attest to the fact that…cause we will all make jokes like, there is something about the two of them. They were made for each other. And I’ll say this to you, and I apologize for saying that to you a couple of years ago ’cause I don’t want to come across disrespectful,” Carlos said.

He continued, “But I’ve always said like, and I said this on my podcast, I think God created Melody and Martell for each other. And I will stand by that despite the backlash I may receive. I have never met a couple who’s so in sync with each other. And that’s why when we saw the Destin trip, and we saw those little tidbits of the snacks and the food, it was just a glimpse of like there’s just something about the two of you.”

LAMH fans called out Carlos King.

Carlos’ comments didn’t sit well with everybody. In fact, LAMH fans called him out in the comment section of the video. And they feel like the deleted scene was extremely topic.

One YouTube user wrote, “It is incredibly offensive for anyone to suggest any woman is made to endure what Martell has put Melody through.”

Another wrote, “I don’t understand this need to push this toxic relationship. It’s sick. Martell is abusive and disgusting watching everyone coddle him.”

Someone else wrote, “Imma need Carlos to examine why he thinks it’s ok to tell this woman she is made for a man who is a cheater and an abuser and lack the introspection to even try to change. Why is fateful about that? This is so gross.”

While another YouTube user wrote, “We need to stop telling black women to accept less…. We are not made for another person (that’s gaslighting), we choose our person in marriage. He decided to choose his mistress so she can decide to move on, love herself, and find her happiness. And I love that for her!”

  1. This show continues to highlight the problems of the black community and it’s astounding how Carlos doesn’t even notice his own toxicity. I don’t think he’s a bad person. He just needs to do better.

    1. Yeah I don’t think Carlos is a bad person either. But he needs to accept Melody’s decision. She has a boyfriend and everything. It’s inappropriate to film scenes like this with her now. Talk about her new man instead.

  2. This was so hard to watch. It just seems like everyone wants Melody back with Martell. And a good bit of them are punishing her for leaving him. Melody did the right thing. Women staying in bad marriages was normalized for way too long. So let’s celebrate women leaving bad relationships.

    1. Notice how LaTisha didn’t hate Mel at all when she was in Destin. Marsau either. That really is the problem here. Just about everybody on that stage with the exception of maybe Tiffany/Louis/Stomi/Kimmi wants Melody and Martell to get back together. It’s sick.

  3. The whole reunion was offensive to my womanist a-s. But let’s get into this clip though. Martell and Marsau both proposed to LaTisha and Melody at pivotal times of their lives: college graduation and receiving a job offer from a major corporation. When these two men saw that their girlfriends were about to sashay their fine a-ses to financial independence, they panicked and locked them down with marriage proposals. It’s always about control with Marsau and Martell. They don’t actually respect women, and it shows. Marsau talks down to LaTisha constantly but then says she is lucky he “saved” her by marrying her and making her a housewife. Martell is attempting to regain control of Melody by turning the cast against her and suing for custody. Knowing all of this, reunion segments were turned into Tisha is dumb for staying after Marsau got a naked picture and Melody what could you have done differently so Martell didn’t cheat on you? Yeah, Carlos is a misogynist. This segment should have been, Martell why did you ruin the family you loved? And the segment about the picture should have been focused on why Marsau thought it was okay to disrespect his marriage over a potential employee. Instead, LaTisha was tasked with defending Marsau while he remained silent. This show really sucks. The misogyny is hard to ignore.

    1. Girl don’t forget about the silly narrative that Martell’s cheating shouldn’t have been discussed on the show. If it’s one thing the black community does best, it’s coddle black men. It’s infuriating that misogyny even has gay men in a chokehold. Black women don’t really have any allies outside of ourselves.

  4. Someone needs to do a study about how no one on this show can see that Martell is a narcissistic abuser outside of Melody. Black people stay supporting and loving on the most toxic men. If they had any wisdom, they’d be embarrassed to publicly defend or talk positively about Martell. I’m not moved by the constant camera closeups in this scene. Martell was probably thinking about some woman he just picked up from IG. That man is the biggest h-e ever. And he never loved Melody. Stop the bs please. All black women aren’t fools Carlos.

    1. That’s usually how it plays out. Narcissists are always well liked and have people fooled for years. When he bragged about how all the cast loves him, I wanted to turn my TV off. I can’t stand that demon.

  5. I can’t understand why Carlos King…a black man…needed someone to tell him it was offensive for Wanda’s comments about the Holts kids hair…you don’t have to be a parent to see how hurtful and demeaning her comment was…you thought it was funny and made for good TV…at these kids expense…he has said its all about good TV…it saddens me that these people have to sell their souls to work on these shows…their is no work place protection…Melody should never get back with Martell for the sake of the show…she has proven she can succeed outside of the show…Sharee has sold her soul…that’s why hooking up with Martell to boost her and His ratings is nothing for her to do…we as the audience have to demand more…or we are just as bad as Carlos.

  6. I think this is why the show is where it is now. Carlos holds on to the past way too much. I understand that Melody and Martell’s situation is a huge reason the show lasted this long, but umm, it’s time to move on Carlos. They have been divorced for like 3 years. So why is this still being discussed at the reunion? Melody and Martell both have romantic partners now. I want to see Mel with her new man. I heard he’s fine.

  7. Wait a minute, but didn’t Carlos say that the real love of Martell’s life was Arionne at the last reunion? I guess he decided to change his tune after everyone laughed at that. Anyway, Martell is the typical promiscuous black man with daddy issues. He isn’t capable of loving any woman because he needs therapy. In fact, smart women will avoid Martell like the plague.

  8. Black women are expected to tolerate a lot and I’m over it. This is why I love Melody. She’s strong despite everything thrown her way. God will keep blessing her.

  9. Melody and Martel are two of a kind. Misery loves company. They’re at their best when they are doing evil things to others. She is no angel. Martel’s mother has never corrected him in his wrong doing. And yes he does have major daddy issues. Maybe Mel does too. That’s why she chose a player.

    1. What a dramatic comment. Of course you’d never describe the things done to Mel and Martell as evil though right? That’s because y’all are selective with your fake outrage and pearl clutching. No one on LAMH is innocent. If the Holts are evil then the Scotts are demons.

    2. Lol, explain what evil.mel did to Martell…They are not two in the same , Martell is a bil-polar narcissist, Melody is not. And no one is an angel, not even you ..so you should watch what you say. Melody left his sad behind and y’all mad!

    3. I agreed with you Gert Wol, when you said,”Martell and Melody have daddy issues.” I also agree with your comment about Melody not being an angel. Neither of them grew up with their father in the household. Also, they did not grow up with siblings. When you grow up with siblings, you learn how to consider other people’s feelings beside your own. You learn very early how to work and play fairly together. You learn how to share, forgive and make up. Most of all, you learn how to love someone other than yourself. An only child, in many cases, thinks that the world revolves around them. They are usually self-centered. I have seen many of these qualities exhibited in Melody and Martell. They both feel that the world should revolve around them. Particularly, Melody. Their children will learn many things that they did not learn, just by having other siblings to play with.

  10. Melody is in an unsafe working environment. And it’s telling that a lot of the scary things Martell does are never addressed on the show. Carlos protects him way too much and statistically, this may not end well. Martell doesn’t need to be coddled, he’s a menace. But black people love black male narcissists too much to do right.
