Married to Med’s Simone Whitmore Divorcing Husband
Another reality TV couple have thrown up the deuces to their marriage. Dr. Simone Whitmore, 50, and her husband Cecil Whitmore, 51, are reportedly divorcing. They are the longest married couple on BRAVO’s Married to Medicine. The couple have been married for 21 years and share two sons, Miles, 19 and Michael, 15. The pair met when Simone was a student at Spelman College. Simone says,
I have reached a place where I am in a marriage where I do not feel loved and no sacrifices are being made for me to make me feel loved. I must move on.
The reality star hinted that their marriage was in trouble on the current season of the show, telling her cast mates,
He’s just so hostile and angry about every little thing. When somebody is being mean, it’s hard to replace that with something nice or smile. It’s difficult.
The OBGYN continued,
I know Cecil and I look like a fun couple to everyone on the outside, but it takes more to make a marriage work,” she said. “One of the things I was most proud about on our show was the realistic portrayal of black love, with all of the married couples showing America the real ups and downs of raising families. And sadly … divorce is 50 percent in this country. As a successful woman who truly loves herself, I will continue to make sure that I am empowering myself. Divorce is nothing that anyone should be feeling sorry for me, because I am looking forward to a new chapter, a new life, a new beginning. Life has so much to offer me. I have always been a go-getter and I am going to continue to be a go-getter and to strive for the very best that life has to offer.
