If you’re a “Married To Medicine” fan (like us), then you are in for a treat. The franchise is expanding out west with the new series Married to Medicine Los Angeles premiering Sunday, March 10 at 9/8c.
On Thursday Bravo revealed it’s first sneak peak at what appears to be a drama-filled inaugural season featuring a new group of doctors and spouses. Get ready for Dr. Imani Walker, Asha Kamali-Blankinship, Dr. Noelle Reid, Shanique Drummond and Dr. Britten Cole, and friend Jazmin Johnson. (Full descriptions below).
Per the site:
Married to Medicine Los Angeles, will follow a new group of successful female doctors and doctors’ wives as they navigate their personal and professional lives in the City of Angels.
This season, Asha is ready to start a family, but her husband is hesitant to hop on the baby train. Then, when Shanique learns a surprising fact about Asha and her husband, mistrust begins to build between the two ladies and eventually spirals out of the control. This growing feud leads to fractures within the group. Meanwhile, Noelle struggles to balance her family and work life, Imani considers reconnecting with her biological father and then, Jazmin and Imani go head-to-head over assumptions over where a husband’s wealth comes from.
But before all the drama goes down, fans will get to hang out again with some of the Married to Medicine crew when Dr. Contessa Metcalfe brings Quad Webb-Lunceford, Dr. Heavenly Kimes, and Dr. Simone Whitmore head out to L.A. to visit Dr. Britten, her army buddy, in a special episode of Married to Medicine on Sunday, March 3 at 9/8c.
Asha Kamali-Blankinship is an actress married to Dr. Larry Blankinship, a Physiatrist (Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation physician) who specializes in patients with pinched nerves in their neck or back. While she is a doctor’s wife, Asha prides herself on being a multi-hyphenate actress, producer and writer and believes in creating opportunities for yourself.

At home, there’s her husband, Phil Johnson, from the 90’s R&B group “Portrait” and son, Idris.

She’s currently working as a temp, looking for a full-time position in Los Angeles. She was previously enlisted in the Navy with Dr. Contessa Metcalfe and is the mom of two kids. Britten’s husband is Mack Major.
