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.

Martin Reunion First Look Trailer

Martin reunion

BET+ debuted the first look trailer for its highly-anticipated Martin reunion. Three decades later, the cast is reuniting for a special episode dropping on June 16.

Participating stars include Martin Lawrence, Tisha Campbell, Tichina Arnold, and Carl Anthony Payne II.

The trailer opens with a dedication to Thomas Mikal Ford, who played Tommy in the series. The actor sadly passed away in 2016 from an operation complication. He was 52.

Hosted by comedian Affion Crockett, the special will focus on the show’s origin and evolution. In addition, it will feature interviews with the surviving cast, original directors, special musical performances, and behind-the-scenes must-sees.

Martin, which premiered in 1992, starred Lawrence – who played various characters, Campbell as Martin’s girlfriend and later his wife, Gina; Arnold as Gina’s best friend, Pam; and Martin’s two best friends, Cole (Payne) and Tommy (played by the late Thomas Ford). The series concluded with season five due to the tensions between the two main cast members. People reported that Campbell sued Lawrence for “repeated and escalating sexual harassment, sexual battery, verbal abuse, and related threats” in 1997. The two later reconciled, with Campbell announcing in 2020 that she was “so glad that we’re in a good place right now.”
