The couples from OWN’s “Love Marriage: Huntsville” are returning for a second season. For those who don’t know, the reality series follows three African American couples who work in real estate in Huntsville, Alabama.
While the show follows their professional lives, there’s also the relationship element. And as you know relationships, especially the ones documented for television have a tendency to be messy.
In the trailer for the new season, which premieres on Saturday, September 7, Martell Holt accuses another man on the show, Marsau Scott of cheating on his wife.
The accusation is particularly interesting given Martell’s own history of infidelity. There was a whole two-year-long affair. Which is why he was ready to throw someone else’s indiscretions in Marsau’s face.
While the Holts have had their own relationship struggles, they are also expecting a child. Melody, Martell’s wife, confirmed the news in a recent Instagram post.

Despite the fact that the two are bringing another child into their lives, Melody is clear that she still doesn’t trust her husband.
Particularly because the woman he was cheating with called him recently.
“After Martell’s surgery, I felt like things were going in the right direction. We weren’t having any major issues and enjoying each other, making sure we were spending time together.
And then we were headed out of town. And while we were headed out of town, he had a phone call to come through. No number showed up. Blocked phone call. So I answered the phone. There’s this chick on the phone. The same chick. And it’s like, why is she calling. Martell was like, ‘I don’t know why she’s calling. I haven’t talked to her.’ Oh no I didn’t believe Martell Holt when he said he had no idea why she was calling.
Since my heart has been broken like it has, I really don’t put anything past anybody anymore. I need to see what my options are if I choose to not stay in this marriage.”
Love Marriage Huntsville premieres Saturday, September 7 (9 p.m. – 10 p.m. ET/PT)
