Watch: BET’s “Being Mary Jane” Season 3’s sneak peek trailer

unnamed-1

The first sneak peek trailer of BET’s “Being Mary Jane” Season 3 starring Gabrielle Union is here!

The third season of Being Mary Jane will find our favorite news anchor struggling to piece her life back together after the devastating car accident in last season’s finale. In an effort to move on after the crash, Mary Jane will cut ties with the two people responsible for the incident, her longtime best friend, Lisa, and her on-and-off-again ex-boyfriend, David. However, the driver of the other car, a down-on-her-luck bookstore owner named Cecilia, will have other plans. Meanwhile, Mary Jane finds herself sidelined at work when a beautiful young Latina anchor, Marisol, shines as her replacement, while she is out on medical leave.  However, Mary Jane finds a way to save her job as Primetime anchor, but soon after leads herself to a “life cleanse” which causes her to rethink her actions.  Yet just as things are finally looking up for her, a tragedy in the family will throw her world into chaos once more.
“BEING MARY JANE” is created and executive produced by Mara Brock Akil; executive produced by Salim Akil and Gabrielle Union. Co-Executive Producers Devon Shepard; Claire Brown and Jeff Morrone. Veteran actors, Richard Roundtree and Margaret Avery, reprise their roles along with a stellar cast that includes Lisa Vidal, Richard Brooks, Raven Goodwin, B.J. Britt, Aaron Spears, Latarsha Rose and Stephen Bishop. Season 3 also includes guest star appearances by Loretta Devine and Jill Scott.

Fly Recap: When Going In Between The Sheets, Make Sure They’re Yours! BET’s Being Mary Jane

bmj29

It’s no wonder why Mary Jane‘s glass is always full with the bubbly. This damn show will drive anyone to drink!

We’re about one episode away from throwing something at the television when looking at Niecy AKA “Work in Progress!” Perhaps its just a perspective thing and although we do get to see different angles to guide our views, quite frankly it’s tired!

I mean really, what would you do if you opened your home to a friend or relative and witnessed….

bmj27

That’s Mary Jane’s bedroom by the way…..

Here we’ve got the answer for you.

bmj28

(Disclaimer: SFPL does not condone violence in ANY nature)

But, come on!

Our girl MJ wears many hats but within this mess of a woman/child/project, its about time she let go. Playing devil’s advocate for just a moment, there seems to be a stigma behind all her efforts in trying to fix the lives and or views of her family members.

bmj31

The echo of “I’m better than you all” gets louder and louder by the episode. (Hence MJ’s Facial Expression) For a person who is somehow trying to better themselves, much difficulty surfaces from validity of insecurities. Especially someone so close to your own background.

But we recognize and appreciate your efforts MJ.

bmj33

But not everyone is going to always be receptive. Poor Niecy is just a lost girl trying to find her way in the world. And with raising two kids with both fathers out the picture, it’s easy to see how this young girl with naive tendencies would fall back into the same place that got here to begin with. Above pictured, we see Niecy having dinner with the father of her first child. As he attempts to plead his case, claiming he wants to step up to the plate and be there in his child’s life…..

bmj34

And look whose home getting played. Can you say your surprised?

bmj35

Not Mama!

As she tried to warn her.

bmj30

Explain till your blue in the face but for us that’s one straw too many!

bmj15

Mary Jane is determined to hold up that title of  Aunty of the year at all cost!

Entertainment Last Night in NYC

[Last NIGHT in NYC] ‘Think Like a Man’ Press Reception …

The Think Like a Man promotional tour rolled into New York last night and team SFPL was invited to participate in the festivities. Esteemed members of the press had the pleasure of participating in a Q & A with the Movies stars including; Kevin Hart, Gabrielle Union, Michael Ealy, Regina Hall, Jerry Ferrara, Terrence J, Romany Malco, La La Anthony, director Tim Story and Rainforest producer Will Packer.

Held @ The Sky Room in NYC, the cast gave an insightful look into their characters and a behind the scenes venture inside the film from their perspective as we all enjoyed delicious cocktails and appetizers. I asked the cast what they’d like our viewers to do to help this film to be a success and naturally they said, ” Go See The Film!”

I made a note to congratulate the cast and directors for creating an amazing brown romantic comedy that wasn’t coonish. They didn’t take the question so well, but hey, I’m the voice of the people, brown movies have really been a bit coonish as of the last few years and I can really only speak the truth. After a Comedic argument with Kevin Hart, both he and Terrence J brought some amazing facts to our attention such as the low numbers brown films normally get at the box office. For example the movie Love Jones to date has only grossed 12 Million dollars, we have to improve that.

As supporters we must make sure we see these films and increase their demand to keep more of them in production.

In short, Go see this movie 🙂

Step into some pics of the cast and the press below …
