From prolific, writer, director, producer Tyler Perry, The Haves and the Have Nots is a new television drama that follows the complicated dynamic between the rich and powerful Cryer family and the hired help who work in their opulent mansion set in Savannah, Georgia.

From the outside, the Cryers are the enviable face of success and wealth, but behind the veil the family’s dysfunction threatens to destroy their world of privilege. Cryer family patriarch Jim Cryer (John Schneider) is a powerful judge whose double-life, including tawdry affairs with high-priced escorts, puts his family and political ambitions at risk. His wife, Katheryn Cryer (Renée Lawless), is the ultimate matriarch portraying a loving and dutiful wife, but she is willing to do anything to protect her family’s status. Their son Wyatt (Aaron O’Connell) is a troubled angry jock who cares little for his own image and finds himself in and out of rehab. His sister Amanda (Jacyln Betham), a struggling law student, tries harder to live up to her parents’ expectations, but unknowingly has befriended a scurrilous young woman, Candace Young, with the power to ruin the entire family.

Hanna Young (Crystal Fox) is the Cryer’s maid and the matriarch of her family. Despite having no money, she has found other types of wealth through religion and virtue. She prides herself on her dutiful son Benny (Tyler Lepley), the glue who helps keep the family together. Hanna does have one dark secret, however, her estranged daughter Candace (Tika Sumpter)—a manipulative opportunist who will stop at nothing to get what she wants.

Other characters in the series include the Cryer’s chef Celine (Eva Tamargo), their wealthy friends Veronica (Angela Robinson) and David Harrington (Peter Parros), and son Wyatt’s rehabilitation counselor, Jeffery Harrington (Gavin Houston).

    Okay! I had already figured out that Amanda was shot or dead before tonight; my curiosity had been cured. Hanna did a decent job on Benny but she needs to turn up on him a little more. Why is Jeffery still playing the g** role? He needs to strip down and show that Melissa what he can work with. Anyways, I enjoyed the show tonight. Cant wait to see if Candace has a little sympathy for Jim when the media announces that his daughter is dead or shot.

    Omg I am loving this season...first I thought I wouldn't make it without "If Loving you is Wrong" but season 3 of the haves and the have bots have glued. We are so excited by the second. Wait a minute when we are looking at the preview for next week, we are constantly trying to pause and rewind to see who Jim is hitting in the head. Or whom will he hit in the head. This show brings the family together in full conversation and we begin to talk about all aspects of life. Can you say thank you Mr. PERRY FOR YOUR HARD WORK AND EXCELLENCE WE APPRECIATE IT. Wish you can see my 6 year old son he is a huge fan of the legend Mr. Michael Jackson himself but he can quote all of Madea with his eyes close.

    Has anyone noticed how badly written & produced this garbage is? Ever notice how long the actors take to speak one line? Actor 1: I love you (15 second pause) Actor 2: What? (10 seconds) Actor 1: I said, (8 second pause) I love you. Actor 2: (10 second pause) Why? Actor 1: (6 second pause) Bacause. (5 second pause) Because I do. And this is the way EVERY interaction on the show plays out. Time killers!! And we don't want to mention the milquetoast black men. These guys are pathetic! Anybody know guys like them? Letting an evil black woman just run roughshod over them. And doing NOTHING about it!! Perry has gotten people suckered. It's time to cut the diva named Perry, loose, people. He's insulting your intelligence & playing you for fools. And why is it that during the promos, he's sitting in the middle of the cast? What's with that? DIVA!!!!

    I LOVE to watch this show with my family. It keeps me on the edge of my seat every Tuesday night. Sometimes I wish they showed the season 1 episodes from the beginning or have them on demand so the people that never watched the show before can have a chance. I have so many friends and family members that never seen it and want to watch it from the beginning. I also have friends and family that missed episodes that cannot be found online, on demand, and they never show them again on OWN. I'm glad that I am up to date with all the shows, but I really feel bad for them to miss out on such an excellent show... put them online, on demand, SOMEWHERE!!! Thankyou lol. Can't wait for the new episode tonight....

    January 27, 2015*******Watch and be aware that the enemy will try to draw you into old traps. The result of falling into the same trap over and over again will result in your inability to move forward as you encounter one dead end after another. Now is the time to pay attention and to learn to avoid the first step that leads you down the wrong path, says the Lord. Stay in the flow of My Spirit. Ecclesiastes 9:12 For man also does not know his time: Like fish taken in a cruel net, like birds caught in a snare, so the sons of men are snared in an evil time, when it falls suddenly upon them.

    Recently, my mom left us because she's having a hard time and I guess she's having an affair with somebody. I know because I saw her messages. For me, I felt betrayed, why on earth my mom will leave us? Just like that? I was angry and everytime we communicate through text message I disrespected her, I keep saying the she is the worst mother and I cant believe she has that guts to do that. It was painful and 1 year after I got this lump in my body (I wont mention where exactly) when I got the results of my ultrasound I have 7 solid nodules.. I cried for how many days and I keep asking God "whats wrong with me?" "Why is this happening to me?" "Why did you allow it?" It's unbelievable how fortunate I feel after finding your website.For the past months, I have been so depressed,I read online that Dr Gwen helped a girl in this situation Out of complete and total desperation, I contacted him for help.I let myself trust and have faith in Dr Gwen. . Through this struggle, i'm proud to say that am COMPLETELY HEALED and also mom has come back to my dad. praise be to Dr Gwen ,he has given me grace to share my testimony,I went back to the doctor a few weeks later everything was completely normal and the doctor could not believe it.You never fail to put a smile on faces. If you have problems that you think you can't do it "please contact Dr Gwen via Email:: test and call him on +958............................ I am Ella Monroe "By My Side"

    ACobb I was born and raised second generation U.S.Virgin Islander if you ever want to meet people who show love hug ups and greeting everyday, but growing up the same rules of it takes a village to raise a child, and things was never easy but we lived off the land, I still make coconut oil from scratch. I cherished our ancestors they had to be tough as nails but full of love of family too. I kept precious things from them not gold but handmade and stories that will last generations, a home is the safe haven like mine have been for 18yrs I poured it full good memories some bad but we shake the rugs to get it out the door. Now I fight disabled or not my last hope, my motto make do til you get through. I'm new to asking for help because I worked since eleven years old, My sons are warriors one in the military, they are taught the island old fashion way, to love hard and fight hard for what is right. I ain't gon give up that easy mehson, banks may be bigger but my soul stride to hard to back down. Thank you love all what you do Mr. Tyler Perry you follow yo heart always.
