So I really have enjoyed this show from the début of the mini series that turned into the television series a few years back. I’ve decided that it’s worthy of a weekly recap for those on the fence about viewing and anyone looking to discuss on this platform.
“Mary Jane Paul (Gabrielle Union) is a single woman with style, class and a high-powered career as a host of a popular news program. On paper, she has it all, except one thing…love.”
Season 3 of Being Mary Jane picks up from the season 2 finale, Mary Jane getting into a really bad accident after overhearing a telephone conversation between her best friend Lisa and her ex-boyfriend with whom she’s still in love with.
Evidently thirst bucket Lisa, who is definitely no ones friend. Had a thing for David whom she met before Mary Jane was introduced to him. David placed Lisa in the friend box, but that didn’t stop her from cleaning his pipe at some point after he and Mary Jane broke up. David and Mary Jane have had a tumultuous relationship since the inception of the relationship.
From the looks of the accident last season it didn’t look too bad, but evidently the writers and producer’s needed to up the ante with the story line.
So we find out that Mary Jane has basically broke her face, (if you know what Gabrielle Union looks like than you already know she’s gorgeous) she’s needs her face to report the news, so obviously this is a game changer for SNC who isn’t interested in keeping her trouble making ass around anymore. So if her face is jacked up and they can spin her being intoxicated while behind the wheel, they can kick ole girl to the curb.
Her father gives David a miny beat down after finding out what happened to lead Mary Jane accident. Her BFF runs like a biatch once the fisticuffs come out.
So Mary Jane’s face is broke (she has to get plastic surgery to fix the damage caused by the accident) her job is on the line, her best friend screwed her ex man at some point and now she has the guilt of hurting someone else. Enter CeCe played by Loretta Divine, initially CeCe seems like a sweet old lady who doesn’t have insurance and is part of the accident. (we’ll get to see ole girl is smart as hell and a hustler when we get to episode 2) Mary Jane visits her in her room (she initially was stuck in the hall until MJ said something to the staff) and chats her up, apologizing for the role she played in the accident and upon leaving the hospital sends a check for 3k her way.
Episode 1 is pretty uneventful, there are other little stories happening involving MJ’s eldest brother Patrick who is a recovering addict, left to care for his youngest daughter last season after her mom was locked up for shoplifting.
