Love & Marriage: Huntsville Recap
Here’s a little recap for those of you who might have forgotten the last season’s drama. Melody Holt and Destiny Payton-Williams had bad fallout. Destiny became friends with Melody through her marriage to Martell. Since high school, she and Martell have been really good friends. Martell received quite a lot of criticism for his personal and professional choices, to which Destiny came to defend him.
Martell started his own wine company in his grandmother’s honor, although he has admitted to not being a wine drinker. During his marriage to Melody, he was introduced to a sweet wine that he loved. His wine is now available for purchase after several delays, but it hasn’t been a smooth ride for him and his company. Customers have been harsh, complaining about delayed shipping and lack of professionalism in packaging and branding/ marketing.
Destiny Payton-Williams Talks About The Show & Fans’ Reactions
On Instagram, Destiny talked about how her comparison to Melody was pointless. She had a lot of things to say, which she did via the video. She confessed that the comparison annoyed her, but it didn’t matter because one could never dim anybody’s light. Furthermore, she spoke a lot about being authentic even when people liked ‘fake,’ and the narratives that got sold were very inauthentic.
Additionally, she defended Martell’s wine company saying they were Black-owned businesses creating brands and figuring it out as they went. She argued that when people ordered stuff from Amazon that didn’t arrive within the time frame, they didn’t seem to complain or share their opinions brutally. According to her, people needed to find a way to support these businesses instead of bashing them since a majority of these old companies went through the same things as Martell’s company.
