A “revolutionary series about a perfectly imperfect single black woman … For black women, it’s like our own personal Scandal, a world in which we see ourselves not just in its main character, but in most of its characters.” That’s how BuzzFeedNews.com described BET drama Being Mary Jane, and the overwhelming fan response on social media has proven it, with #BeingMaryJane trending on Twitter every time it airs.

 

Since 2013, Gabrielle Union (from 10 Things I Hate About You, Bring it On), has starred as Mary Jane Paul (MJ), a news anchor who almost has it all: the high-flying job, money, good looks, great hair, and a crazy but loving group of friends and family. But MJ, who is in her late 30s, is looking for Mr Right and wants to start a family. Which leaves many steamy encounters with hunky men devolving into rivers of tears as her dream of future perfection is shattered into a million pieces.

 

 

We’ve seen MJ try to smooth out the kinks in her family life, coping with her mother’s health issues and a brother with addiction problems. We journeyed with her from Season 1 to 4 as she found herself caught between sensible and sexy men. She almost had it all with David … until she lost it. Then she got it on with Andre – only to find out that he’s married with kids! After a failed fertility treatment and a car accident in season 2 (when she overheard her best friend confessing her love to David), MJ finally chose to cleanse her crazy life of toxic people and relationships. Finally, she was evolving. Even Michelle Obama, who is a fan of the show, approved.

 

 

At the end of season four, MJ’s co-worker, Justin, got down on one knee to propose, but he didn’t know that MJ may already be pregnant … and not with his child! The teaser trailer of the finale movie shows MJ in a white wedding dress, and we can’t wait to see who’s wearing the matching suit.

 

Watch the Being Mary Jane finale movie on Thursday 18 April on BET (129) at 21:00.
