‘Married to Medicine’ Star Slams Viewers For Not Embracing ‘Positive’ Black Women22
“Married to Medicine” star Quad Webb has had enough of people complaining about the negative portrayal of Black women on reality television because she says they are the viewers who are supporting it.
There has been a lot of turmoil in the world of reality television lately.
From online petitions to Twitter protests, reality shows are being criticized for the way they portray the African-American community.
The debates have been firing off since shows like “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” and “Love and Hip Hop” hit the air, but the discord became more intense after the networks began expanding the subject matter.
The focus of reality TV has grown from music stars and housewives, to honing in on the lives of doctors, journalists, single mothers, famous ex-wives and even Greek sororities.
Critics slammed “Married to Medicine” for portraying African-American women in the medical field in what they felt was a negative light.
The show features quite a few cat fights and drink tossing, expletive-filled arguments, and other drama-filled incidents between the women.
Now Webb is pointing the finger back at the viewers and it appears she may have a valid point.
The reality star says that when there is no drama on the show, viewers complain and ratings decline.
