Dr. Jackie Walters found out that her husband Curtis Berry was cheating as the Married to Medicine cameras rolled last season, and viewers saw her handle the devastating news with poise and professionalism. But that's not how she felt on the inside, she told Kandi Burruss on Kandi Koated Nights.
“Initially for me, I felt homicidal," she admitted.
She learned about his affair because it popped up on a blog, which she saw while she was at work.
“When you’re seeing patients and you’re walking into an exam room and you find out on an iPad that your husband’s name is on the blog, you still take care of the patient if you’re like me and you do what you got to do and you go, ‘Okay,’” she said. “You’re traumatized initially but I think as a professional, you got to keep doin’ what you got to do."
She fears that the show could have played a part in Curtis feeling like he could cheat.
“The public persona totally adds to it,” she explained. “Curtis was an athlete before, but I certainly think the exposure of being on TV and [women thinking], ‘Maybe he got a whole lot of money I can get' [may have contributed]."
Many of the ladies on Married to Medicine experienced marital troubles last season, but there has been at least one ray of hope as Dr. Simone Whitmore and Cecil Whitmore, who were planning on divorcing, announced their reconciliation at the reunion.
