Mary Jane struggles to get a chance to do more serious interviews while her former idol, and now nemesis Rhonda, blocks her at every turn. MJ comes up with a plan to interview a black female reality show personality and humanize her, according to Kara, "hoodrat" behavior for morning tv. The plan backfires when MJ is forced to work with Justin, and gets into a verbal spat with the reality star that goes viral. In MJ's personal life, she meets up with her brother Paul, who is now a luxury real estate agent in NYC. As she tries to find an apartment, she also tries to fast forward her relationship with Lee. After a break up, followed by a quick make up, Lee convinces MJ to not rush things - they are solid and the relationship will grow in its own time. Kara meanwhile, always looking for the next opportunity, hooks up with a Latino baseball player and starts to mentor him for a post-retirement career.
