In case you missed it, BET’s original scripted series, Being Mary Jane starring Gabrielle Union aired last night after much fanfare.
Many are wondering if the show is “life imitating art” as Union’s character is in love with and can’t let go of a married man. The show addresses infidelity, adultery and premarital sex as the norm for a successful black woman. This depiction is both disturbing and somewhat unrealistic.
Union’s character secretly yearns for a man and family of her own but sees this goal as unattainable due to the perplexed marriage to her career.
Last night’s show was the first of eight series, my question is…will you continue to watch?
