Mary Jane Gets a New Love Interest


Our favorite single lady, Mary Jane Paul, is getting a new love interest in season two of “Being Mary Jane.”

According to Deadline, actor Gary Dourdan, last seen on CSI, will have a recurring role playing a reclusive retired civil rights attorney who becomes smitten with Mary Jane when he agrees to an interview with her.

Mary Jane, played by actress Gabrielle Union, is expected to have a number of potential suitors next season, including a rumored female admirer.

This role may be played by actress Salli Richardson-Whitfield, who is also joining the show for a five episode arc.

“Being Mary Jane” became BET’s highest rated show ever and ended its first season on a high note, garnering just over 5 million viewers for its season finale.

The second season is expected to kick off in November.


  1. Sounds like promising additions to the show. I’ve always loved Sali Richardson as an actress, since her break-out role in the classic film “Posse”. Hopefully, MJP will stay clear of married men in the second season, as that is too pitiful.

  2. I can’t wait for the second season. The first season was a hit indeed, but it was crazy! Sistas you know what I mean.

    Some fresh faces will do the show good and a new love interest for Mary Jane.

  3. Yes, yes, yes. I’m glad there’s a new man coming into her life. I know the show is centered around her dating life, so I do’t really know if I should expect her to find the one “true love” of her life, but it’ll be nice to see her with a unmarried man and some stability for a while. I’ll be waiting for the next season.

  4. I have always had a deep affinity for Gary Dourdan (since A Different World)…Chile I will definitely be tuned in just for him!!!! 🙂

  5. Yes…. I cannot wait I love this show!!!! I also love Gabby as an actress she plays the role extremely well… she it too believable it’s scary!
