Let me begin by expressing my gratitude for all the love and support so many of you have shown to me and my family. I am truly amazed by how many people have been touched by our story. Your tweets, letters, and emails sharing your stories about your own personal blended families have truly been a source of inspiration and healing. I also want to thank all of the viewers who tuned in to watch Married to Medicine's debut season. Because of you, the show’s ratings broke new records for a non-spinoff reality program on Bravo!

A lot of time was spent filming the six ladies and their husbands for this show. Unfortunately, the format doesn’t allow everything to be shown. The audience is only allowed to see the clips that make for "great and exciting TV." It’s like that for any reality show on television. I am disappointed that the storyline for my family centered on my child when there was so much more filmed that I would have liked everyone to see. I’ve read the comments that the viewers took the time to post and trust me, I shared your frustration! It has definitely been an emotional rollercoaster for my entire family. Looking back at all of the episodes, one would think that topic was the only thing discussed, analyzed and debated throughout the entire time of filming when it came to the HuQ’s. #IncredibleHuQ's

There are many other noteworthy aspects to our life including the successful blending of our multi-culturalfamily; our thriving careers and businesses; our dedication to the community and involvement with The Brian Jordan Foundation along with The Ryan Cameron Foundation. And like so many other parents, Aydin and I work together to develop the necessary balance between family, career, and home. I'm sorry that the viewers were not given the opportunity to see those things as well to make a true assessmentregarding our family. Perhaps, that footage will air for one of the "Lost Episodes." LOL!
