Margeaux And Merica Will Appear On The New Season Of “Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars” On WE TV
She made her name as Nikko’s edgy artist wife on Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. But Margeaux Simms will be back on the boob tube to tackle her relationship problems with new girlfriend, Russian androgynous model Merica, for the latest season of “Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars,” which also stars “Mob Wives” Karen Gravano and her boyfriend Storm, and singer Keke Wyatt and her husband, Michael.
Margeaux and Merica met as bartenders at a nightclub in New York City, and slowly their friendship developed into something more. Now, the couple said they are more together than ever and are talking having kids and buying a house together. BOSSIP sat down with Merica and Margeaux – who just released a new single “Want You, Need You” – and the lovebirds spoke about their time in therapy on the show.
BOSSIP: Tell me about this season of Marriage Boot Camp. What was it like?
Margeaux: “It was fun. It was intense because you have to deal with your emotions every day, which I think is a bit much. And the other couples and their emotions. I drank a lot. I drank a lot of wine.”
BOSSIP: Why did you two decide to go on the show?
Margeaux: “I actually thought it would be fun, because we really don’t have many problems. I mean we do I guess, little things, but we didn’t think it would be that big of a deal. But I think it was more of like a learning experience, and we want to be solid, so it was more like a test of our relationship to see if we could make it through it.”
BOSSIP: What were some of the issues in your relationship?
Merica: “We don’t have issues.” (laughs)
Margeaux: “It was because I never dated a girl before. I came out on national TV. I know that was a concern to my girl. Me learning about being with a girl who has ex-girlfriends who are still your friends, whereas when you date a man, it’s different.”
Merica: “There are always issues with how you’re going deal with your exes and how you deal with your past. I have to admit that we do have this different point (on that)…It’s jealousy, its insecurity, its a lot of stuff. It’s also dating a gorgeous, beautiful woman who is super intelligent, and there’s always people who think she’s hot. You have to deal with that everyday.”
Merica added: “We’re a biracial couple and two girls, and people don’t like it, and they’re always saying stuff…She’s from Jamaica, and I’m from Russia, so we have two opposite, different cultures, different ways, and the perspective of how we look at things, it itself is already an issue.”
