Dr. Jackie Walters dishes on the second season of “Married to Medicine”
On Sunday Dr. Jackie Walters, “Married to Medicine’s” resident lemon- squeezing problem solver, will return for a second season of the controversial program. Ahead of the premiere, the invariably classy OB-GYN and women’s health advocate dished to rolling out about her new cast mates and explained how Dr. Simone Whitmore played an integral role in recruiting her for the show.
“Dr. Simone who is a cast member on the show was first approached about doing the show and was told to recruit somebody unlike her, so she, of course approached me about it, and my initial response was ‘no way.'” said Dr. Jackie.
“So she asked if I would meet with Mariah Huq. Mariah presented the whole sizzle reel and [explained] ‘this is what we’re looking for. We’re going to have women marreid to physicians and we’ll have some female physicians there to kind of help them understand the lifestyle of a physician. Sounds real simple, right?”
“Married to Medicine” returns to Bravo Sunday, April 6 at 9 p.m EST; check out our sit-down with Dr. Jackie Walters below. -danielle canada
