Jazmin Johnson Talks Returning to ‘Married To Medicine L.A.’ and Practicing a Healthy Lifestyle On and Off-Screen

Born and raised in Inglewood, CA, the fitness enthusiast and mother of a beautiful son, Jazmin Johnson is actually married to medicine. Her husband, Dr. Gadson Johnson, is a successful Los Angeles-based psychiatrist.

Becoming a TV personality was not an overnight decision. In fact, in past conversations with her husband, the couple agreed to never get involved with reality TV. Things, however, have changed since then. Johnson realized that the show could potentially be a great platform to highlight her entrepreneurial talents and also show what her life is really like. “If anybody could showcase what being married to medicine is like, I could, because there’s a lot of people who don’t know about my lifestyle. It looks very glamorous but it’s very rare that we actually enjoy the fruits of our labor.” Things will get more interesting this year, Johnson says. “I am showing a lot more of my life this season, which you didn’t see last season.”

A spinoff of the Atlanta-based original Married To Medicine series, Married To Medicine L.A. first premiered last year on Bravo. Set in La La Land, the show gives viewers an inside look into the busy, luxurious lives of successful women who are either medical professionals themselves or are married to doctors. After a successful first season, the show is now returning for a second go-round with the original cast including Johnson, Dr. Britten ColeDr. Imani Walker, and Shanique Drummond. Joining them are newcomers Dr. Kendra Segura and Lia Dias.

Aside from working on the show, Johnson actively promotes fitness and healthy habits off-screen. Her husband is the one who got her into a regimented workout routine, she admits. “I had to adjust to having structure. I started to go to the gym with him and I started to like it. I liked the way I felt – gaining confidence, and it obviously made me look good.” Now with over a hundred thousand followers on her Instagram, the reality star, (who, by the way, considers trying out scripted television and film in the future) has made it her mission to inspire and motivate others to be more confident. “It’s truly something I’m passionate about and I enjoy,” Johnson says. Her Instagram page is full of great tips and exercise routines for anyone who chooses to lead a happier and healthier life.

Don’t miss Married to Medicine L. A. season 2 premiere this Sunday, May 3! And check out the preview for season 2 below.

The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air is making a return with Bel-Air! The one-hour project is based on Morgan Cooper’s record-breaking fan film (more than 7.5 million views to date) that reimagines the classic 1990s sitcom based on Will Smith’s journey from the streets of Philadelphia to his uncle’s mansion in Bel-Air as a drama. Per Deadline, Bel-Air  “will dive deeper into the inherent conflicts, emotions, and biases of what it means to be a Black man in America today, while still delivering the swagger and fun nods to the original show.”

Cooper will direct and co-executive produce Bel-Air. Showrunner Chris Collins (The Man in the High Castle, The Wire) will co-write, executive produce.

The project is being developed by Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith’s Westbrook Studios and Universal Television and is currently being pitched to multiple streamers, including NBC’s Peacock, Netflix, HBO Max and Amazon.
