Who Is Married To Medicine's New Cast Member, Anila Sajja?

Ahead of Season 8, Married to Medicine decided to add a new face to the cast. Since Season 1 of the show, fans followed the lives and careers of Dr. Jackie Walters, Dr. Simone Whitmore, Toya Bush-Harris, and Quad Webb-Lunceford, via IMDb. While some cast members have come and gone, the five OGs opted to stick it out together, along with the addition of doctors Heavenly Kimes and Contessa Metcalfe.

The hit reality series highlights the encounters and daily lives of ladies within Atlanta's exclusive medical inner circle. While Jackie, Simone, Heavenly, and Contessa provide insight into their busy lives as doctors, wives, and mothers, cast members Toya and Quad have shared the ups and down of their marriages to doctors. Toya and her husband Dr. Eugene Harris have been transparent about their money issues while downsizing their lavish lifestyles to continue raising their two sons, via Bravo. Quad, on the other hand, is the only member of the cast who had their divorce captured on the show, via Heavy. Fans got a chance to see her bounce back following her decision to part ways with Dr. Gregory Lunceford. After Season 7 wrapped, the show's producer and fellow OG Mariah Huqq announced her exit from the series she helped to create. With her absence, producers tapped a local fashion blogger to fill the void.
