Being Mary Jane is Back Tonight with Season 3 and I’ll Be Watching!

I was at the first screening of the Being Mary Jane movie, 2 years ago in Chicago. Mara Brock Akil, creator and Executive Producer was there answering questions and showing love, and I was excited to be in the room to see what her latest project was about. Mara is writing bae, and her track record is so impressive that Usain Bolt is jealous (Girlfriends, The Game). LOVE SHE.

Gabrielle Union as Mary Jane Paul did not disappoint and it went beyond the movie to become a series on BET. There have been 2 seasons so far (that you can binge-watch on NetFlix), and tonight is the start of season 3.

Mary Jane Paul’s bad ass dress game, shenanigans and self-sabotage is back. The talk news show host can be such team bad decisions and some of us see ourselves in her or have a friend who isn’t too dissimilar. Although, the way she talks to her friends sometimes… me and her would NOT be able to get weekly lunches. However, she is allowed to be a fully formed woman, making mistakes, making amends and making men whimper at her feet. That part is my favorite. Still, Happily Ever After eludes her. Even as she is a professional powerhouse.

I love what MJ represents as a character, and a Black woman who feels free, has agency over her body and can be sexual without being stigmatized.

Being Mary Jane

Mary Jane constantly says the wrong things, she pushes those around her to their limits and she’s so indecisive that the one thing she’s sure about is that she isn’t sure what she really wants. She went from David (Stephen Bishop) to Sheldon (Gary Dourdan), the older guy who offered very little of himself but freedom. In between, she’s bounced between conquests (heyyy Thomas Q. Jones).

I just want her and David to stop playing musical chairs with my their heart. They complicate everything. If after 5 years, you always end up back in each others’ arms, maybe that is the universe saying you belong together and you gotta stop playing bald-headed games! Also, the man can WEARRRR some boxer briefs! On the strength of that alone, she gotta come on.

Anywho, I’ve partnered with BET for this season of BMJ. As per my usual, I’ll be livetweeting the show (from @Luvvie), starting with tonight’s 2-hour premiere episode at 9pm ET/8pm CT.

I will also be doing a Periscope broadcast after every episode I live-tweet so we can talk about what we just watched. My Periscope account is @Luvvie too, so follow me there if you use the platform. I will be getting on Periscope right after the show ends tonight, so join me then!


If you have not seen season 2, stop here because I am about to talk plot points and major spoilers.



So last we left, David butt-dialed Mary Jane as he was having an argument with forever friend-zoned Lisa, and MJ hears all the details and tea of their relationship. Lisa gave David $50,000 to start his company and she’s been an ever-present shoulder to cry on for him, and an occasional recipient of some cunning tongue game from him. MJ is in her car driving home in the rain as this is happening and she is stunned by what she’s overhearing. She narrowly misses hitting a car, but that car swerves off the road into a pole and her car swerves into a giant truck. David and Lisa hear all this go down.

Mary Jane JUST got promoted to primetime anchorwoman too, so this could not happen at a worst time.

SONNNNN. I cannot wait to see what happens next tonight. LAWDT, let MJ pull through with her face and weave intact.

Anywho, I wanted to give y’all a treat so one lucky Awesomely Luvvie reader will be getting an exclusive Being Mary Jane season 3 season 3 gift pack from BET. It’s full of some pretty nifty goodies.

    Because MJ is your “ordinary average every day sane psycho”

    “Yeah I drive naked through the park
    And run the stop sign after dark
    Stand in the street, yell out my heart
    To make, to make you love”

    Those lyrics remind me when she ran after David in Season 1 after he finds out about her stealing his sperm and the ending of Season 2.

    You’re broken down and tired, Of living life on a merry-go-round
    And you can’t find the fighter, But I see it in you so we gonna walk it out
    And move mountains

    And I’ll rise up
    I’ll rise like the day
    I’ll rise up
    I’ll rise unafraid
    I’ll rise up
    And I’ll do it a thousand times again

    “A Fool in Love” Tina Turner. Because when MJ falls for a man, she falls HARD….

    You take the good along with the bad
    Sometimes you’re happy and sometimes you’re sad
    You know you love him, you can’t understand
    Why he treats you like he do, when he’s such a good man?

    And listen, he’s got me smiling when I should be ashamed
    Got me laughin’ when my heart is in pain
    Oh no, I must be a fool
    ‘Cause I’ll do anything he wants me to

    Hourglass by Empire Cast f/V. Bozeman because MJ’s life is just like a soapopera; Like sands through the hourglass, so are the Days of Our Lives. Also, if you listen to the contrary lyrics, it embodies all of MJ’s relationships (You say we fight, I’ll say we argue. Maybe you’re right, that we really are through
    And I’ll say goodbye, if you really want me to. Cause that’s what I’m gonna do)

    I’m gonna have to go with Stevie Wonder’s ” All in Love is Fair.” That songs always makes me shed thug tears and so does watching MJ play games with the President of the hi-yella, bald and scrumptions club. It’s tragic.

    My world it moves so fast today
    The past it seems so far away
    And life squeezes so tight that I can’t breathe

    So caught up I wasn’t able to achieve
    But deep in my heart, the answer was in me.

    Ok, so I ran through an entire list of songs off the top of my head first: Part Time Lover, You Aughta Know, Grenade, Stay with Me, etc., a whole bunch of Keisha Cole songs, but I settled on this one fa sure:

    “This Time” by Tracy Chapman.
    I know, I went waaay back BUT this to me sums up how Mary Jane could be talking to herself about all of her relationships, including her friendships. Yup, this is it for me.

    Song Choice is Forever Dont Last – Jazmine Sullivan

    I had high hopes for us baby
    Like I was on dope for us baby
    Chasin’ after a high that I’ll never get back again
    So we turn into three long years
    And it became painfully clear that we
    We would never see those days again
    But I guess forever, doesn’t last too long forever
    Doesn’t last too long forever
    Doesn’t last too long forever these days, hey
    And I try to believe that we could make it
    But trying don’t work, so I just have to face that forever
    Doesn’t last too long forever these days, hey

    Still think about the good times we had
    And how you used to make me laugh
    But baby I know most times we were meant to revolve
    So every time I wanna call, baby what always helps
    Is when I think of the pain, and realize
    I’m better off by myself

    ‘Cause forever, doesn’t last too long forever
    Doesn’t last too long forever
    Doesn’t last too long forever these days, hey
    And I try to believe that we could make it
    But trying don’t work, so I just have to face that forever
    Doesn’t last too long forever these days, hey

    I’m HYPED for this premier… Luvvie, you got me signing up for new media, just I don’t miss you NOwheres!

    Shawn Mendes – Stitches

    “I thought that I’d been hurt before
    But no one’s ever left me quite this sore
    Your words cut deeper than a knife
    Now I need someone to breathe me back to life

    Got a feeling that I’m going under
    But I know that I’ll make it out alive
    If I quit calling you my lover
    Move on

    You watch me bleed until I can’t breathe
    Shaking, falling onto my knees
    And now that I’m without your kisses
    I’ll be needing stitches
    Tripping over myself
    Aching, begging you to come help
    And now that I’m without your kisses
    I’ll be needing stitches”

    I think the part about needing stitches got to real for Mary Jane…

    A song many can relate to in this situation 😉

    Wale – “Sabotage” ft. Lloyd

    It’s important to go right into the booth after the arguing
    I think it’s only right, hoarse and everything
    Like fuck it though, what’s up

    Pessimism is all that she know
    Cause every brother she go with always pick up and go
    I been trying to show you somethin, got a different approach
    Told her, “Give me your heart, try to get you the globe”
    Have the world baby girl, live it up, you deserve it
    Every time she catch feelings she go throw away the gloves
    We go together, break up
    We go together, break up
    Ain’t this an insecure bitch, meanin we love to make up
    When we good, we good shawty
    We don’t ever make love
    But if I call out your name, I bet your ready to “uh!”
    You say you ready, you ain’t ready enough
    Cause when it fall right in your lap, you be ready to get up
    This is her, this is it, this is sabotage love, counterfeit
    She the shit, She the one
    She got cold feet, my love will be the sun, get it done
    This is her, this is it, this is sabotage love, counterfeit
    She the shit, She the one
    She got cold feet, my love will be the sun, get it done

    Cause I, am feeling this deep down in my heart
    I’m feeling like I never want to be apart
    But just when it gets good, she’s gone
    And I’m left right back at start

    My girl likes to sabotage, our love yeah
    She can only take so much more than her heart got
    She can only live for the moment
    Why? I’ll never know it
    Guess I’ll meet her right back at start

    Let’s roll a J and pretend we in love
    I’ve got a paper plane, it’s propelling my buzz
    I’m trying to make a way, she never call back
    She’s tryna fall back, cuz she say I’m all that
    She only love me when I be ignoring
    When I be doing throwin it on her, shorty brushing me off
    I swear, I kinda feel like she’s slightly bizarre
    Sabotage all the time, have me Avatar’d
    Blue ball, who fault? Mine, only cause I stick around
    She leave before the sun up, leave you something to think about
    Yea and this is something to think about
    Why people want you single every time that you got a spouse
    Ha, that make it hard to be faithful
    Knowing I can go wherever and get eight more
    Tell more depending on where Wale going
    Fuck it I got a few more now that my hair long
    It’s weird shawty, your wares showing me dead wrong
    You gon’ miss a good thing and bitter alone
    Shit ain’t better alone
    I get her once I bet you keep coming back for more
    Keep coming back for more, keep coming back for more
    Keep coming back for more, keep coming back for


    This is her, this is it
    This is sabotage love, counterfeit
    She the shit, She the one
    She need now, She ain’t never needed love
    Gotta go, let her leave
    This is something that could never ever be
    Said her hearts, in a cage
    Cuz if you never love, you can never hate

    Sabotage, sabotage, I love you
    Sabotage, sabotage, I love you
    Sabotage, I love how you keep coming back for more
    Keep coming back for more
    Keep coming back for more

    [Chorus: x2]

    If That’s Your Boyfriend (He Wasn’t Last Night) by Meshell Ndegeocello

    “You say that’s your boyfriend
    You say I’m out of line
    Funny, he said I could call him up anytime
    You can say I’m wrong say I ain’t right
    But if that’s your boyfriend, he wasn’t last night.”

    Pill and Potions, she’s always overdosing on David and the drama that comes with that association. When he’s not around she’s getting high off his memories. And most definitely still loves him. I’ve been there. I didn’t wrap my car around a pole. I need to get from A to B to get my coins.

    What could it be in you I see?
    What could it be?
    Oh, love, Oh love stop making a fool of me”

    On Your Own – Lalah Hathaway
    IG: Kat-egory5

    Album: Self Portrait

    If you were meant to be together
    Then you would know that it’s right
    After all this time, you’d be by his side
    And if it were meant to be forever
    You’d still be living in that dream
    So it seems

    So for all the times you cried
    And the many times he lied
    I’ll tell you ’cause I know
    You can make it on your own

    So your heart belongs to you now
    And you know that it’s right
    Free from that make believe love story
    In your mind (in your mind, in your mind)
    Feel so much better, leaving yesterday behind
    But always remember, hold on to life

    So for all of your regrets
    That your poor heart won’t let you forget
    I can tell you ’cause I know
    You can make it on your own

    You’ll be wiser in the morning
    So much stronger when the sun rises
    So don’t find your fear alarming
    Your pain will disappear like nightfall
    Will then rain comes, the pain goes
    Wash it away
    The remains of a battered soul
    Trouble won’t’ last always
    Believe me there’ll be brighter days

    So for all the time you cried (every single tears)
    Every single time you tried
    I know cause I know cause I know
    You can make it on your own

    “Lesson Learned” by Alicia Keys ft. John Mayer

    I believe that Mary Jane’s love life has been a journey like it has been for many women. The type of men we used to date and the type of nonsense she used to accept she’s decided against at this point in her life. There’s been a couple of “love lessons” that she’s had to learn the hard way, but she’s finally coming around to a place where she was finding contentment.

    Frank ocean- Bad religion

    If it brings me to my knees
    It’s a bad religion
    This unrequited love
    To me it’s nothing but
    A one-man cult
    And cyanide in my Styrofoam cup
    I could never make him love me
    Never make him love me
    Love me
    Love me

    I love Mary Jane, but she really should think before she acts. I don’t understand her reasoning. From my point of view, she creates a lot of her own problems. I think that the songs (it’s so hard to pick just one!) that best describe MJ’s love life would have to be…

    1. Bitch is Crazy by Drake (because our girl has done some of these things, and I can see how a man can think she’s off)
    2. Single for the Rest of My Life by Isyss (the desperation!)
    3. Good Morning, Heartache by Billie Holliday (fits those lovely, melancholy scenes in which she wakes up, looks at all of her Post-it affirmations and starts her day…alone)
