If you have been wondering what is going to get you from December to almost March with Olivia Pope on a brief respite I have an alternative to mass suicide or reading 50 shades of Grey. It is long been known that Gabrielle Union fought and lost for the part of Olivia Pope. She was down but not out. The future Mrs. Wade is in her own scandalous show, on BET Being Mary Jane. Previewed this past Summer, Gabrielle Union stars as a TV personality in a series once titled Single Black Female, which saw critical success when its pilot aired as a movie . How much success? It hadn’t even premiered yet and it’s already been picked up for a second season. The show serves up it’s fair share of sex , scandal and more sex.
BET, Tuesdays 10 p.m. ET.
