If you tuned in for Married to Medicine on Sunday night, you captured one of the biggest fight’s in the world of reality television.
On the hit Bravo program, co-stars Quad Webb-Lunceford and Lisa Nicole Cloud got into a physical altercation after the two revealed some personal information about each other after previously conducing background checks on each other.
According to Quad, she found that Lisa was charged with battery after allegedly attacking her husband, Darren Naugles. Quad also claims that Darren cheated on Lisa and fathered a child. And although it wasn’t really clearly discussed, Lisa continued to throw out that Quad engaged in a lesbian relationship at some point.
According to producer, Matt Anderson, the women had lunch to discuss their issues, but it took a turn for the worse.“Lisa Nicole and Quad meet up for a lunch date that goes so wrong I do something I never like to do when reality is happening … I have to step in,” Anderson explained. “I never like to break the flow of a scene, and I find when these women get into living their lives in front of the cameras after a few days, they forget we are there.”
HipHollywood caught up with Quad last month to talk about she and Lisa’s beef and the reality star claims that the background check and fight was Cloud’s way of staying relevant on the show. “She did a background investigation on me because we are going to do business together? It’s reaching, it’s really sad. And I’m quite disappointed in the way she took on this complete lie.”
She continued, “We were friends at the time. She is saying, I’ve read in some of the interviews that she’s done that she was going to go into business with me. I’m like really. That’s just interesting because my business partner is a billionaire and the checks always clear. You’re struggling to pay Uncle Sam. I probably wouldn’t ask you to invest with me.”
“It’s a classic example of a person who is trying to hold on for dear life and afraid that they are going to be clipped, chopped and put to the side and on to the next,” Lunceford said. “You see that a lot when people don’t have very much to offer. As we al know, it’s been noted that she was quite boring and I think this year she wants to say ‘hey, no, I’m going to make my mark here.'”
She added, “Here’s a person that has abandoned all of her beliefs … now she’s as dirty as the mud comes.”
Netflix’s ‘Step Sisters’ Is ‘Bring It On’ … But Way More Woke!
Netflix is getting ready to “Bring It On” … in more ways than one. The streaming service’s new flick Step Sisters is reminiscent of the 90s dance film, but delves deeper into racial themes like cultural appropriation, tokenization and interracial dating.
In the film Megalyn Echikunwoke (Arrow) plays the president of a black sorority who is tasked with teaching one of the campus’ white sororities how to step for a charity competition. At first glimpse the film seems to be stepping into a can of worms — and had folks on Twitter up in arms, but the creators and cast told HipHollywood it isn’t about cultural appropriation but instead cultural exchange.
“There’s a strong political message, and there’s a lot of racial content,” said Nia Jervier. “But I think that the pill that may be difficult to swallow is dipped in honey, because it’s funny.”
What also helps is that producer/writers like Lena Waithe (Masters of None), Chuck Hayward (Dear White People) and Ben Cory Jones (Underground) are behind the project – so you know it’s woke.
“At the end of the day, Jamila the lead character in our minds she’s reaching over to show them a part of our culture. It doesn’t dilute our culture,” said Jones. ” And I love that we can take stepping and evolve that into issues of race and culture.”
Step Sisters begins streaming on Netflix January 20th.
