"Married to Medicine"

Many of you saw this post on my Facebook page about a month ago:
Well after I got over the fact that Bravo shunned me, I decided that I could still capitalize on the reality show material that is my life. After all, I'm almost exactly as glamorous as the women on the show. Take Friday for example - I started off the day with an oatmeal hair mask designed to make my hair silky and shiny for my next social event. I mean, if you want to get technical about it, it wasn't so much an "oatmeal hair mask" as it was Gerber oatmeal spit out by my son. And my next social event involved a play date for two one-year-old boys. But still. Toe-may-toe, toe-mah-toe. 

In case you want to see the trailer, you can see it here. But really, you don't need to watch the trailer, because you can get a sneak peek into the life of a real doctor's wife right here on this very blog! Sure, I spend more time reading "How Loud is a Lion?" than sipping champagne while wearing diamonds and a fur coat. And yes, I typically wear yoga pants and slippers instead of an evening gown and stilettos. But the point is that we doctors' wives are a glamorous bunch. And as evidenced on the show's trailer, it's our style to use the phrase "doctor's wife" at least once every three sentences. Otherwise, how would anyone ever know how glamorous and sophisticated we truly are? I'm so glad that someone finally made a show about doctor's wives so that they could perpetuate the idea that doctors are raking money in hand over fist and don't owe a quarter of a million dollars in medical school loans.*

In conclusion, I would just like to say - "doctor's wife."

*When Dan was applying to medical schools, a financial representative at one of the schools said, "We prefer to call it '$250,000 in debt' instead of 'a quarter of a million in debt' because it sounds better." And he's right, when you put it that way, it gives you the warm, fuzzy feeling that you'll be paying off debt for the rest of your natural life.


  1. Wow. I watched the trailer and there are no words!! haha! and yes. $250,000 does sound so much better than a quarter of a million!!

  2. The women are all exactly like me, right??? ;)

  3. From another doctor's wife, I am so glad that someone else understands how ridiculous this show is...and the burden of student loans!
