On the Reality TV Show, Married to Medicine, Mariah Huq and Toya Harris fought. Really Mariah Huq Smashed on Toya Harris. Here is the situation:
Mariah Huq is married to Dr. Aydin Huq. Mariah had a child, Lauren, from a previous relationship. Mariah married Dr. Aydin Huq when Lauren was very young. Lauren ONLY knows of Dr. Aydin Huq as her father. Lauren does NOT know that she is adopted, she is less than 10 years old.
Here is where it gets hairy...
Mariah shares with Toya Harris that Lauren is not Aydin's biological daughter. (This was ill-thought. I cannot imagine what or why Mariah Huq would have shared that information with Toya or really anybody else on a Reality Show)
Toya shares this information with her hair stylist. ...here comes the Gossip.
Mariah's Sister and Mother find out about the Gossip. Mariah's sister, Lake, tells Mariah the day of the Party where the "Smack Down" took place.
This is how Mariah Huq SHOULD have handled Trifling Toya Harris, because believe me-she needed handling.

Fighting with Toya at her husbands birthday was simply NOT the Classy way to handle it. Here is how she should have done it:
She should have had a glass of wine. Called Toya AND Her Husband(Yes, I would have contacted Toya's husband direct). Let them both know, that because of Toya's inability to display discretion that their family was no longer welcome to the party:
"Dr. & Toya Harris, I am rescinding my invitation for you at our private engagement this evening. We can schedule a meeting next week when my husband's schedule permits. Apparently, my family tree is a topic for your discussion. So I will make sure that my husband is there to also discuss this matter. You names have been given to our security and you will not be admitted if you decide to attend anyway." -The Huq's
And that would be that. It would have allowed Mariah to put the drama into the next week and she would have come out smelling sweeter than a rose. Then she could have been the Queen of her husbands birthday party as she should have been.
When you are angry, you do not think clearly. Especially when it comes to you children, however, that's what the glass of wine was for.
Its important that we always take a deep breath and think about the consequences of our behavior and foresee problems and people that could be problematic.
What I want to know, Mariah, is what happened to Lauren's Dad? ClassyBlackGirl.com has a open invitation for you to chat!
Readers, please tell me what you think. How could Mariah Huq have handled this in a more classy manner?
