Plot Synopsis

BEING MARY JANE: THE REAL TALK BACK! is a series of extended and enhanced episodes of BEING MARY JANE, featuring four women with diverse opinions expressing their thoughts throughout the show. On Sunday, December 13, 2015, BET premiered these enhanced episodes as part of an 11.5-hour marathon from 12:30pm-Midnight ET/PT, allowing viewers to binge watch the first nine episodes of Season 3. In this one-hour scripted drama series, Mary Jane Paul juggles her career as a successful TV news anchor with her relationships and her family, who don't share her same motivation. In reality, she's a self-sufficient powerhouse with a lackluster love life, who is torn between David, an ex she can't quite shake, and Andre, a hunky new boyfriend hiding a big secret. Mary Jane, formally known as Pauletta Patterson, is the host of the daytime news program "Talk Back with Mary Jane Paul" at the Atlanta-based SNC cable network, where she works with her executive producer Kara Lynch and bends the ear of fellow SNC anchor Mark Bradley. In Season 3, Mary Jane struggles to piece her life back together after the devastating car accident in last season's finale. In an effort to move on after the crash, Mary Jane cuts ties with the two people responsible for the incident: her longtime best friend, Lisa, and her on-and-off-again ex-boyfriend, David. However, the driver of the other car, a down-on-her-luck bookstore owner named Cecilia, has other plans. Meanwhile, Mary Jane finds herself sidelined at work when a beautiful young Latina anchor, Marisol, shines as her replacement, while she is out on medical leave. However, Mary Jane finds a way to save her job as Primetime anchor, but soon after leads herself to a "life cleanse" which causes her to rethink her actions. Yet just as things are finally looking up for her, a tragedy in the family throw her world into chaos once more. The four women featured in the REAL TALK BACK episodes include:

Sky Houston, a radio, television and online personality who can be heard weekly on Houston's KMJQ-FM (Majic 102.1) and KBXX-FM (97.9 The Box)
