Being Mary Jane has ended it’s 2nd season with an explosive two-part season finale. I chose not to blawg about the show this season because frankly, I was disappointed in the initial storyline.
Last season, our coveted Mary Jane Paul (Gabrielle Union) survived heartbreak after a lengthy affair with a married man (Andre – Omari Hardwick) who left the show to pursue a more lucrative deal in ‘Power.’ And in my opinion, writers of BMJ seemed at a loss on how to proceed without Hardwick’s presence.

While the 2nd season started off slowly, it finally picked up a bit but I still couldn’t get past the fact that Mary Jane seemed suddenly obsessed with her ex, David Paulk (Stephen Bishop) and his new relationship with his baby mama. Blah Blah Blah… enter Mary Jane playing the side-chick (again) as her ex decides he really loves her but is in a ‘situation’ where his fiancè is pregnant. *sigh* I just couldn’t.
During the 2-part season 2 finale, Mary Jane experiences a breakup (Sheldon (Gary Dourdan) didn’t quite work out), a makeup (Mary Jane and Kara (Lisa Videl) mend fences for the greater good of her career), a tempting primetime job offer and a shocking revelations (MJ discovers her BFF has been lusting after David for years), while finally ending with with a bang… literally!

In the season 2 premiere episode titled, ‘People in Glass Houses Shouldn’t Throw Fish’ (yeah they really titled it that), we find Mary Jane (Gabrielle Union) obsessed with getting ‘closure’ from her failed relationship with David (Stephen Bishop).
Her determination to uncover the intimate details about the relationship’s demise is weird and it’s almost like her year-long extramarital affair with fine azzz Omari Hardwick never existed.
In a recent interview, Mara Brock Akil, the creator of the hit show, refers to it as Mary Jane “being an investigative reporter about her own story.”
“She has to know why. Why did you leave me?” Akil says of Mary Jane’s dogged pursuit of why David has moved on.
“She needs to know why. It’s gonna be painful, but she has to go there.”
It’s also revealed WHY the successful career woman is so loopy and hell bent on knowing all the facts…
We find out that MJ aborted the child of the love of her life, who is now choosing to stay with a woman he doesn’t really love only because she’s knocked up. *sigh*

Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed and the city of Atlanta recently launched a campaign aimed at increasing awareness and prevention of sexual assault.
The campaign, titled “Take a Stand,” offers resources to both women and men on how to guard their personal safety or get help quickly in the event of an emergency and features a short film about sexual assault and prevention as well as several public service announcements (PSAs).
The PSAs will feature celebrity advocates for rape prevention and so far, Tika Sumpter and Gabrielle Union have filmed clips.
