Married to Medicine star Dr. Simone Whitmore is opening up about her divorce months after she and husband Cecil Whitmore separated. She is also speaking out about the other woman in Cecil’s life, Tammy, whose photos are posted below.
First, Dr. Simone, 50, reveals the breaking point in her marriage to Cecil, 51, that led her to file for divorce.
“We had a blow up. And the next morning, he woke up and decided he didn’t need to talk to the counselor. That I was being petty,” said Dr. Simone in a preview for part two of the reunion. “And I told him, if you leave, if you walk out of that door, I am done! He left. What the f–k did you think I was going to do?”
“I knew where he was going. I asked him not to go. He chose to go anyway,” said Dr. Simone, prompting host Andy Cohen to ask her if Cecil was going golfing.
“No, he has a best friend that’s a woman that I feel is a big time manipulator,” she answered, referring to Cecil’s friend Tammy.
“Do the two of them have feelings for each other?” Andy asked her.
“No, it’s not a physical relationship,” answered Dr. Simone about the other woman in Cecil’s life. “But as a buddy. As a golfing buddy or sports buddy. But as a buddy. That kind of relationship.”
Things took a more dramatic turn when Toya Bush-Harris tried to encourage Dr. Simone to work things out with Cecil.
“That’s fine but are you telling me you would tolerate this s–t from Eugene?'” snapped a yelling Dr. Simone. “Yes, I want a divorce if I can not feel love in the home I sleep in.”
Dr. Simone added, “Sometimes a relationship must and will come to a close. There are people who stay married for all sorts of reasons. I married for love and that is the only way that I’m gonna stay married.”
Even though the divorce news didn’t come out until this year, Dr. Simone actually filed for the divorce back in October 2017.
Part two of the Married to Medicine reunion airs tonight on Bravo at 9/8c. A preview clip is below –
