What I Have Learnt From Married to Medicine Reality Show

I have been watching Married to Medicine on Amazon Prime for months now, and I am loving the reality show. I stumbled upon this show earlier in the year, and I have been hooked ever since. For those who have never heard or watched the show, Married to Medicine is a reality show showcasing the lives of a group of doctors and their families in Atlanta. Cameras follow these doctors and their spouses, as they try to juggle their careers with family and social lives. I find the series very entertaining and informative. There are currently 6 seasons on Amazon Prime and I am currently watching the last season – Season 6.

Married to Medicine

Married to Medicine is one of the few reality tv shows I can relate to now that I am in my 30s. Back in the day, you would catch me watching Keeping up with the Kardashians, The Only Way is Essex, and many other reality shows like that. But these days, I can’t bring myself to watch most of what I used to work back then. I just don’t have the time or energy to watch crap, so I save my TV time for programmes that make sense to me.

The Married to Medicine crew are fun to watch. I find their lives very interesting. My favourite couple on the show is Toya and Eugene Harris. Toya is a work from home mum (like myself) and Eugene is a doctor. I admire their relationship. They keep it real and you can tell they value one another. My least favourite couple was Quad and Greg Lunceford. I am happy to hear they have started their divorce proceedings. The marriage looked off from day 1, with no chemistry at all. And with all that has happened between them, I am glad they are letting themselves go their separate ways.

 

What I have learnt from Married to Medicine

I am not married to medicine in any way but I can relate with many of the women on the show in different ways. Marriage is hard work, and juggling a family is a blessing but it does not come easy.  Don’t let anyone fool you. So seeing these women struggle with these many hats deeply resonates with me.

 

Here are 2 things I have learnt from watching the show –

 

Marriage counselling is not a taboo

Today, we have Many couples all over the world are suffering in silence. They rather keep their issues to themselves than to share it with a qualified therapist. The whole idea of getting marriage counselling is not something that even crosses their minds, and I think that is so sad. Marriage counselling is not a taboo and this is a message that is heavily promoted on the Married to Medicine show.

Most of the couples on the show have had some form of marriage counselling. We have been able to follow them on their journey as they try to save their marriages. All but 1 marriage was saved. That only confirms how amazing marriage counselling can be. It is definitely not a taboo and every couple struggling with marital issues should consider getting some marriage counselling.

 

No marriage is perfect

No marriage is perfect. If any couple is pretending to have a picture perfect relationship, then they are living a lie. Many couples go about pretending to have the best marriage but the reality is usually a different story. No one really knows what goes on behind closed doors except the parties involved. So it is best to not get carried away with the lives other couples show off but instead focus on our marriages and relationships.

Style Icon – Kylie Jenner

Kylie Jenner is all over the news with her new reality TV show – Life of Kylie. I have seen a few seconds of a clip of the show, and it looks good. I am no longer a huge fan of reality TV shows, especially those of the Kardashian/Jenner family. Which is why I am not watching Life of Kylie, but I am sure millions of Kylie’s fans are watching.

Kylie Jenner has grown up before our very eyes, and her style has evolved in the last few years. This young Style Icon keeps making a fashion statement every time she steps out. And guess what? She knows it!

“I never thought I was normal, never tried to be normal” – Kylie Jenner.

Kylie Jenner is famous for experimenting with her facial and body features (which I don’t admire), but she is also fashion risk taker, and I like that about her. She is not afraid to play with her look, and the best part of it is that she nails it overtime.

If I were asked to describe her personal style in 3 words, it would be – trendy, provocative, stylish. When it comes to fashion and style, Kylie Jenner slays!

Kylie Jenner seems to be taking fashion and beauty lessons from her big sister – Kim Kardashian. The good thing is that those lessons are working for her. She actually looks like a mini version of Kim now with all the changes she is making.

Apart from this beauty’s stylish fashion sense, I also admire her working ethics. Some days ago, I came across the book – How to be an Overnight Success by Maria Hatzistefanis, and Kylie Jenner’s attention to her brand and her hard-working nature was mentioned repeatedly in the book. It is good to see Kylie doing well outside the Keeping up with the Kardashians reality show. As the youngest of the sisters, I am happy to see she has her business head on. Whatever she touches, turns to gold!

If I Could Live Like a Celebrity

I love watching reality shows. Some of my favourites are The Only Way is Essex (TOWIE), The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and The Rachel Zoe Project. I was also a huge fan of Keeping Up with the Kardashians and all their other spin-off shows, but I have recently gone off those.

Reality TV or Trashy TV as some of us like to call it is so relatable, and I guess that is the reason why they are loved by millions. You get to see these celebs living their lives, in their homes doing regularly stuff and it becomes addictive. I don’t watch reality tv shows as much as I used to some years (hardly watch TV these days) but I still play catch up on a few and watch more movies instead.

I am a huge fan of James Bond films, I have seen many of them including the latest Spectre. I like the flashy lifestyle of James Bond in the movies. From his expensive suit and shoes, to his cars, sunglasses and watches. The James Bond character is definitely living the life!

I recently came across this Licence to Chill infographic on www.chillmoney.ie  and I found it very insightful. It shows off the very lavish lifestyle of James Bond, Martin McFly and Jay Gatsby. I found the figures alarmingly. Who knew a one bedroom flat in Chelsea London would cost £700,000? Or the Omega Seamaster 300 watch would cost £4600? But then again, I am not too surprised, this is exactly how a A list celebrity lifestyle looks like.

I wouldn’t mind living a James Bond lifestyle for a bit, exclusing the fights and violence. I will be in it for the lavish bit only.

What are your thouughts? Are you alarmed by the costs of stuff on this infographic? Which of the 3 characters on the infographic is your favourite?
