Audience members Denise Abramowitz and Jeanie Klein, who have attended many talk shows and have been called “Daytime TV Fanatics” by the New York Post, thoroughly enjoyed “Doctor & Diva,” stating that they found the hosts to be genuine and the topics on the show very relatable to every day life. 

One of the topics discussed for an upcoming show was infidelity and what constitutes cheating in a relationship. Locke and Salvatore shared their own views on the topic and personal relationship stories prior to inviting audience members to sound off on the topic as well.

Locke, who is single, was candid about her relationship woes, while Salvatore shared funny anecdotes about his relationship with his wife, stating that he would be in trouble with his wife regardless of his opinion on cheating.

Celebrity guest panelists, relationship expert/author Andrea Syrtash and comedian Chuck Nice, also weighed in on the topic and answered relationship questions from the audience. Other guest panelists included The Budget Mom Kumiko Love; Bob “Botany Bob” Hunter; and Shark Tank contestant Maxwell Cohen, founder, chief executive officer and president of Peel Away Labs.

Locke and Salvatore kept the audience entertained throughout the taping and answered questions while also joking around with the audience and each other during breaks. One audience member, Camille Colossum of Brooklyn, performed an a cappella version of Dionne Warwick's song “A House Is Not A Home” during a wardrobe change.
