Mariah Huq, Executive Producer & Creator of ‘Married To Medicine,’ Says White Counterparts Get Treated Better: I Still Haven’t Seen My Paperwork For Season 8!
Mariah Huq is calling out Bravo TV network executives for allegedly treating her differently because of her race, which happens to be African-American.
She is the creator and also the executive producer for the network’s popular reality show, Married to Medicine. The show has been on for seven seasons and according to Mariah Huq, she still has not received any paperwork for the upcoming eighth season of the series.
I’m the first African-American woman to create a franchise at Bravo. I’m one of three people. It’s me, it’s Lisa Vanderpump that created Vanderpump Rules, and Whitney Sudler that did ‘Southern Charm.’ They’re still with their franchises. They’re still a part of [them]. Why would I not be?
I wouldn’t even be questioned why as an African-American creator and executive producer am I not at the table when decisions about the show that I created are being made. That’s the bigger question. We talk about justice and equality for all; why am I being treated differently than some of my white counterparts? So, that’s the first question.
