Trivia

When the network informed the actors that the 20-episode season 4 was going to be shot in a row, Gabrielle Union sued BET because her contract stipulates that she won't film more than 13 episodes in a row without a proper break. Two months after the law suit, an agreement was reached between the parties. See more »

So Disappointed
7 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

This show was so disappointing on so many levels: Jumping out of your car to confess to someone that you are sleeping with their spouse, REALLY. Who does that! Then the scene were the Dad says he wishes the mother would DIE. How is the daughter (Mary Jane) suppose to react to that? Where are the STRONG MALE figures along with an accomplished WOMAN? You don't have to sacrifice one for the other, they can co- exist together. It seemed like most of the men in the show were cheating or addicted to drugs, or weak or lazy and unemployed or just after one thing... Sex. Now this portrayal of our black men was the most disappointing aspect of the show to me. Life is real and we humans can make some bad choices that reap some bad results, but let's have episodes that try to bring some positive resolve to the issues of life that Mary Jane and the other cast members face. If the Black Male cannot be uplifted in a show that is written by a black woman SHAME ON US!!!
