The 'Real Housewives' of medicine? 'Married to Medicine' star Quad Webb-Lunceford on the fascination with doctors

What do you get when you take the "Real Housewives" and mix it with a spoonful of medicine? Try the new Bravo reality TV show "Married to Medicine."

The show follows six Atlanta women: two women are doctors, and four of them are doctor's wives. One of the cast members, Quad Webb-Lunceford, is a psychiatrist's wife who feels like she is being bullied by the other women. This morning, she joins John and Brooke on “Starting Point” to discuss her new reality show about the battles of women in and around medicine.

Webb-Lunceford, who works as a medical sales representative, says the series premiere garnered almost 2 million viewers because “people are infatuated with medicine.” She adds that scripted shows such as “Grey’s Anatomy” and “General Hospital” had viewers glued to the television but her unscripted show offers a new fiery element in the world of reality TV.

Regarding public criticism, Webb-Lunceford says her husband was nervous at first but after thoroughly discussing the reality show they were able to move forward.

Viewers can watch “Married to Medicine” every Sunday night on Bravo at 9/8c.

    I expected trash talk on this show BUT I never expected an African American Female Dr to refer to an innocent female child as "bitch". Her exact words were "I wanna know who the bitch is". She's referring to the little girl her little boy's possibly courting, he's around 8 or 9. There's so much emphasis put on rappers referring to females as "bitches". I'm shocked to hear an African American female Dr refer to a little innocent girl as Bitch! Really? She admits she drinks a lot of vodka but that's NO EXCUSE for her calling an innocent female child BITCH! Dr Simone needs to go to rehab!

    I just watched the first episode of Married to Medicine, and it will be my last! The show was awful. The women are vapid, self-centered idiots who want everyone to think they're SO interesting. Guess what, they're not. I love me some Bravo, but this show is an epic fail.
