LOS ANGELES (LALATE EXCLUSIVE) – Married to Medicine’s creator and executive producer Mariah Huq could be leaving the show’s in front of the camera role for season three but ramping up her production role on the series, LALATE can exclusively report. Married to Medicine has been in turmoil since Mariah Huq and husband tweeted their displeasure about the show’s production company during the season 2 finale. Since then, LALATE has written exclusively about Mariah far more vague references to the fate of the show, casting, her role, and the program’s future. But this week, new twists have developed.
Married to Medicine and Mariah Huq have yet to tell news if she is leaving her role on-camera for season three. But it appears likely that Married to Medicine will ramp up Huq’s role and credits behind the scene for season three. Huq created the show, filmed multiple pilots of the show herself, copyrighted the show and pitched it originally. It’s her baby. Yet during season one she got no creator or EP credit, a production disgrace for a talented author.
In season two, Huq got a shared EP credit but still no creator credit. LALATE believes that, after reunion for season two aired, Mariah flew from Atlanta to Los Angeles to meet with the show’s production company to discuss her roles with the show for season three. The discussions are believed to have not resulted in complete satisfaction to Huq and her team. Before the flight, during her visit to LA, and after her return, Huq did not mention where, or with whom, she was meeting. But most LALATE believes that she was attending LA negotiations with the production company over her season three roles.
The Huq meetings happened after a series of tweets by Mariah and her husband furious with the season finale’s footage. Mariah had originally seen the show as a platform to promote the virtues of doctors and doctors’ wives. The show was not to be a campy, watered down housewives program. But the finale was to feature more of her new business.
Huq tweeted displeasure that her business’ launch footage was allegedly cut down dramatically by production editors in the finale. Both her and her husband were also extremely unhappy about one scene in which she walks out of her testimonials and is still microphone, and she is seeing from behind. She said that she was promised the very messy clip would not air. But it did, and it clearly was used to make Huq look negative for viewers.
Viewers adore the show, adore Mariah on the show, and hope she returns to her role on camera. But in recent days, Married to Medicine is said to have entered production for its new season. And what did Mariah just recently tweet? She shared the above image which reads “respect yourself enough to walk away from anything no longer serves you, grows you, or makes you happy”. The image and caption appear to have been customized and authored by Huq who appears with her family walking away, into the distance. And as reported last season on M2Med, Mariah IS the owner of Married to Medicine. So don’t worry about that EP coinage. But as Huq has told viewers before, happiness has no value.
