Holt said she’s in a good place starting in the New Year. She explained, “After 2020, get out of there and be here… I feel good, okay?”

Scott agreed, saying 2020 was a “roller coaster ride” but that she was grateful her family was “happy and healthy”.

Their 2020, of course, was all about filming a reality show and showing it all to the audience. Scott credits the success of Love and Marriage: Huntsville to the great team they have at OWN, saying: “It’s a real production job – Carlos King and his team. We’ve been doing this for a while. It’s a lot of work !”

The ladies further explained how production handled the pandemic.

“You know, having to undergo COVID testing very regularly, having to wear masks,” Holt explained, “even when production came into our homes, we actually had a COVID specialist who was assigned. As Kimmi said, kudos to the production! “

Scott, a registered nurse, is a frontline worker herself.

“For me being a nurse and doing the show… it added an extra layer of activity because obviously I had to work harder than before. I was more concerned with my family and friends, and my clientele that I work with are seniors.

She says her new routine has become “extra cleansing, extra scrubs, and extra masks.”

New episodes of the show will spotlight the Black Lives Matter movement, with the first episode focusing on a black business town hall.

“Much of my gratitude for the show is expanding our platform for the things we do on a regular basis anyway, and City Hall is here,” Scott said. “The town hall brings together people who are successful in their business to share this information with others who are not. There were a lot of meaningful conversations that needed to take place around the world, and the Town Hall was a perfect place to have them. “

The ladies also tease a lot of exciting things to come in the new episodes.

“The show is about the roller coaster of relationships, be it friendship, marriage, business …”, Scott revealed.

Holt wants viewers to know the show is for real.

She explained, “When the cameras are here they capture real life… we’re going to be living our lives, the cameras just happen to be there. If someone had asked me years ago if I ever thought I would be getting a divorce, my answer would be no. And if someone had asked me if I thought it would be broadcast on national television, I would have answered “No no!” But that’s what he is right now.

Both ladies promise that there are “a lot of great moments” that fans are looking forward to. When asked to sum up the new episodes in a few words, Holt replied cheekily, “Three Blind Mice,” alluding to the dynamic changes in the new season.

Scott had a different response, simply saying, “Fasten your seat belt!”
