Did You Know?


When the network informed the actors that 10-episode seasons 4 and 5 were going to be shot back-to-back, 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 »

Disgusting Image for young black women
13 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am a young black woman. 24 years old with one child and I am pregnant with my second boy. I am married and I am thankful for my family and my awesome husband whom I love and fight for everyday. I work very hard for my family and for my children and I fight with God behind me. I am a mother, a wife, I work full time and I am trying to open my first business (a group home supporting other young women). I respect the idea of Mary Jane being a business focused women. But I do not respect the fact that BET makes it look okay for one black women to take what another black woman worked for. I work hard for my family everyday and I adore and love my family. Sometimes there are good days and sometimes there are bad days. But it is not okay for a woman to come in and take another woman's hard work because the truth is, she is lonely. As black women there needs to be an image of supporting one another and strength. Not tearing one another down for our own selfish desires. I have always enjoyed Gabrielle Unions strength in her movies but in this show she sold out. She sold out her strong image and her morals and she sold out the women who do not take but work really hard for what they really want in life. I tell you what, those girls who think it's okay to sleep with a married man is going to run into the wrong wife one day... then it won't be as entertaining. I just want our black women to honor one another because it seems like now on every program and TV show black women are either fighting or sleeping around or calling one another names... And I am 24 years old, this is my generation and it hurts to see them failing. Gabrielle Union chose to give the same image as most of the reality shows for a quick dollar. So, for those who are against this, don't become angry but continue to fight for the health of our women because young women (my generation) needs it more than ever right now. I remember when there was the Cosby's and Fresh Prince of Bel Air.... good shows.
