Season 1 is full of some CRAZY drama. You’ll hate Mary Jane, but feel sorry for her at the same time.┬áSeason 2, I literally just finished. MIND BLOWN!
Okay, first of all, Gabrielle Union is Mary Jane. Or the other way around. Mary Jane is a successful talk show host. If you have seen Gabrielle Union in other projects, she tends to take roles of strong women. I love that about her! This show, however, ooooooweeee!
Mary Jane is the only daughter, surrounded by two brothers, and a niece. She is a reflection of her parents. More of her father. Work hard, play hard, have nice things (so love her house on the show)! She is basically, the financial caretaker of her family, of course with some attachment.
Season 1 will establish Mary Jane for you. Season 2 will push beyond the envelope.
Check it out and let me know what you think!!!
