After catching a few episodes of Bravo’s hit reality-series, “Married to Medicine,” I immediately recalled a blog we did some time ago on Bravo’s hydra-headed “Real Housewives” franchise (http://www.viamediatv.com/blog/those-housewives-are-for-real) which follows the lives and dramas of well-to-do, gossipy, middle-aged married women. Our current blog on “Married to Medicine” is cut from the same cloth, but now the focus is on well-to-do, gossipy women who are either doctors or married to doctors. But being in a highly select professional field (or associated with one by marriage) hasn’t imparted a certain decorum or reserve on the main characters.
Then again, this is the television business, and good manners are not synonymous with high ratings. And that is probably why the main characters of “Married to Medicine” let it all hang out.

But “Flipping Out” also describes Mr. Lewis, who is a serious control freak (it’s definitely clinical), which leads him to flip out once and awhile with his employees and just about anyone else on the show.
