Dr. Simone and Cecil Whitmore’s Resilient Marriage
Dr. Simone’s journey in love has been just as remarkable as her medical career. She and Cecil Whitmore first crossed paths as college students at Morehouse and Spelman College in Atlanta, where their connection took root. In 2021, the couple celebrated an incredible milestone, marking their 25th wedding anniversary. Dr. Simone expressed her deep affection and gratitude for their enduring love in a heartfelt Instagram post, declaring, “25 years ago today, I said for better or worse I’ll take this man [Cecil] to be my husband! I love [and] cherish the life we’ve built together, the roads we’ve traveled, the mountains we’ve climbed [and] the valleys our family [and] friends have lifted us out of. Even on the days I don’t show it or say it, I love you.” Cecil is now known for a career in real estate and has made a huge name for himself.
Despite their enduring love, Dr. Simone and Cecil Whitmore faced their fair share of relationship challenges. In 2017, Dr. Simone filed for divorce, and by 2018, the couple had made a public announcement about their separation. They had reached a point where they were living in separate households and were actively seeking counseling to work through their issues. Talking about the final breaking point of her marriage, she said, “Cecil and I had a disagreement. We were trying to talk through it — with sometimes tense, sometimes normal negotiations in process — and he woke up on Saturday morning, we had a blow-up. I knew that day that my marriage was over. My marriage had ended. I could no longer deal with the stuff he was dishing.
After the season 5 reunion, Dr. Simone and Cecil Whitmore chose to rekindle their marriage and began the journey of reconciliation. This involved a commitment to working on their issues and addressing the challenges that had previously strained their union. The couple sought the guidance of therapy once again, and as a result of their dedication to the process, they eventually took the significant step of moving back in together.
