Ever since Married to Medicine season 8 dropped the sneak peek — where Contessa Metcalfe asked her husband Scott Metcalfe if he was in or out of their marriage — fans were eager to know if Scott was cheating on her.
Moreover, Contessa shared that Scott “ain’t acting great,” before talking generally about men cheating and women blaming themselves for their husbands’ infidelity, intrigued fans even more.
