'Married to Medicine': Kendra says she has allergies and turn sick a lot because her mom didn't breastfeed her
'A lot of Asians during my mom's time frame, they don't believe in breastfeeding. I was not breastfed and what do I have?' Kendra shared
'Married to Medicine: Los Angeles' is gearing up for yet another explosive episode and this time it's Dr Kendra Segura at the center of it. Kendra's mother is home and while she takes a tour of the house, Kendra shares that guests are coming over and she would like her to cook something that is Vietnamese. Her mother refuses, offering to take care of Kendra's newborn baby instead.
Even though she appreciated her mother for her kind words, Kendra made it a point to let her know that the baby needs to be fed every couple of hours, which meant he'd have to be with her at all times.
This prompted a debate about whether or not Kendra should continue breastfeeding her child if she wishes to get back to work sooner. While her mother stresses on formula milk, Kendra couldn't disagree more. She was visibly upset when her mother called her out for breastfeeding. "Kendra, do me a favor. If you want to go to work full time, you have to make sure that he stops breastfeeding," she said.
Clearly, Kendra and her mother weren't on the page. In her green-room interview, Kendra shared that she was not breastfed by her mother and that led to her developing allergies. "A lot of Asians during my mom's time frame, they don't believe in breastfeeding. I was not breastfed and what do I have? I used to get allergies and I used to get sick a lot. All these things could have been combated if she would have given me that liquid gold," Kendra shared.
Did she indirectly blame her mother for falling sick often? Time will tell.
Kendra is new to the show and yet has made significant plotlines for herself already. Previously, at Jazmin Johnson's cocktail party she got into a tiff with Dr Heavenly Kimes over a rather scandalous discussion, and now this. From the looks of it, she knows how reality TV functions all too well. It'll not be surprising if she were to be added to the main cast next season onwards.
