Hands down, Quad Webb-Lunceford (one of the freshest faces on reality TV) has become one of the breakout stars of Bravo’s Married To Medicine. Coining soon-to be classic phrases like ‘catch fire’ and ‘shady boots’, this southern bred diva proves there is more than meets the eye. Recently, the Memphis native sat down with theJasmineBrand.com, dishing on the REAL reason she opted for reality TV, what her least proud moments on the show thus far, comparisons to Tamar Braxton and her BFF, Mariah Huq. Peep excerpts from the interview below.
On the real motivation behind reality TV:
For me, I just looked at the greater platform it would give me. Ultimately I would like to be an actress, to get into some scripted writing – not off the cuff reality, scripted. So I saw this as a stepping stone as possibly getting me there and then opening up many different avenues for entrepreneurship, writing my book – I’m currently writing my book, which is going to be hilarious.
On if she feels famous yet:
You know it’s so weird, I’m still Quad. It’s really funny that you say that. I had this girl, I know she was every bit of 26 or 27 and she was literally in tears crying like ‘oh my God, oh my God’ and I was like ‘What’s wrong? Are you okay?’ and I was like is Michael Jackson behind me, or is Oprah behind me? Because at some point I have to turn around and start crying too. And it was me.
On why she’s so proud of her best friend, Mariah:
I’m gonna say this. I get emotional because I know it’s hard. It’s hard for us overall. But a black female. You see that. So I’m really happy that God blessed her with the vision and she in turn blessed me with the opportunity.
On her least proud moment, watching herself on TV:
So it was the profanity I used. I was very much so upset. I’m a nice person. That’s not what I at least wanted people to see of me first. That’s like my least favorite thing. Because I was definitely taken back by the behavior of my cast mates. I’ve had lunched with these women, dined with these women and although we weren’t close friends, I would consider them associates.
On how her husband feels about the show:
Initially when we got in this, he had some reservations. He really did. But as we talked about it and talked things through and came to an agreement, ever since then he’s been totally supportive. And I really appreciate that.
On if other reality stars, outside of the ‘Married to Medicine’ cast, have been supportive:
Yeah, we’ve gotten a lot of good feedback and a lot of support, especially the Real Housewives of Atlanta. And we’re very grateful for that.
On Being Compared To Tamar Braxton:
You know, there might be some similarities but we’re still really different people. I love her personality. Give me someone who’s over the top. And I will live for them. I see sometimes where she’s kinda loud and I would say I’m loud too. But I see her heart. She has a really great heart. She’s a very ambitious woman and she thrives to make her mark in life and I love that. I love to see that.
On her favorite ‘thing’ about Mariah:
It’s so much. I love the business part of Mariah. She’s very, very savvy and has strong business acumen and I love that about her. In terms of our personal relationship, she takes care of me. We take care of each other. I don’t like when people come up against her. We do understand how hard it is to come into a situation as friends and to leave as friends. Because it’s kinda like taboo is “we really want to see them fall apart?” People want to see that. Our goal, we came in together we’re going to leave together.
Describing Her Cast Members In One Word:
She doesn’t have an identity, Kinda confused, lost.
