From it’s showcasing of personal issues between friends and career struggles Married to Medicine is filled with laughs and highly tweeted moments thanks to it’s stars Mariah Huq and Quad who continue to deliver new sayings and words not found in Webster.
Mariah Huq is one of the producers of the series who takes credit for the ladies success claiming that she made the other stars relevant. It maybe true since each of the women were just housewives and doctors. But Mariah has taken her credit of the series to a whole new level creating new drama and rifts between the cast members. Namely her former bff Quad. The two were close friends for years and have similar backgrounds. Now their rivalry is the main cause for the show’s constant ratings growth.

With a mouth like hers she has put the degree to work. After graduating in 2003 one of her first professional jobs was working at a local television station in Tennessee. She produced the 6 o’clock news show and later had a 4 minute spot on the evening news talking to local entrepreneurs in the city. She eventually had her own tlak show entitled “Lifestyles and Trends” on 3. The gig inspired her to become a business owner of her own branching out.
In 2005 Mariah moved to Atlanta and completely switched career paths in medical sales where she met her best friend Quad-Webb Lunceford who also held the same job. Both ladies were from Tennessee and instantly bonded. Mariah and Quad met their current husbands on the job, who are doctors.
