Ta-Tanisha as Marcy Jones
31 December 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"My Son the Lover" opens with JJ as happy as 'a rooster in a hen house,' since Marcy Jones (Ta-Tanisha), the most popular girl in school, has fallen for him. Thelma recalls that Marcy is a beauty contest winner, and capable of having any guy she wants. Marcy sweet talks James as looking too young to be JJ's father, while Florida is definitely not impressed. He's practically ready to pop the question when the time comes, only to find that her main interest in him is due to his painting her portrait: "George is really gonna love it!" Does this discourage the great lover of the ghetto? Barely five minutes! Ta-Tanisha would return as a different girl in "JJ in Trouble," this time making an accusation that would make any parent sit down. A rare episode missing Ralph Carter.
