Description:

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).

    Good Morning- I want to start off by saying thank you for allowing God to use you. Maybe it's not in a way some people would like, but you don't answer to them, you answer to God. Your messages are always on point and always on time. Last night's episode was right on point and on time. I felt like the scene between Candace and Hannah was a scene that needs to play out between me and my mom. I feel I'm owed an apology. Since the HAHN have been on, my mom and I have both watched. She hates Candace and I love Candace. The more she hates Candace, the more I defend her. And it's all because I knew it was more to the story... This is how I knew. My mom had me when she was 15. By the time she was 21 she had three kids. She believe she thought she was the best mom in the world. I didn't feel the same. Yes, she took care of us. She worked multiple jobs while going to college. But she spent most of her free time trying to get some guy to love her. I saw men come and go, and none of them loved her. I felt like the love she was showering on them should have been geared towards us. They were always more important. So most of my life I felt like she was weak. I never wanted to be like her. The way I felt as a child is still with me. I always have to be in control. Always have to be strong. I love my mother. I love her so much. But until we have a real conversation about things that went on all those years ago there's going to be tension between the two of us. Even after the show last night, we talked about the scene, and she was like, "so what Candace was hurt, Hanna didn't mean it." So, I wrote all of this to say, keep doing what you do. There are so many people who can relate to your characters. Your productions open doors for conversations and healing. Be Blessed~

      LOVING THE SHOW. So true to life. Each character has their own strengths and weaknesses and I honestly know at least one person similar to each of the characters. You are doing an AWESOME job. Great actresses. Great Script. I really love the twist and turns. The cast own their characters. I have thought about Hannah and Candace all day. Thought back to when my mom and I had our heart to heart. It truly changed our lives and we were all the more better until the day she went to heaven. I hope that you will continue to have your special when the show ends, when you bring the cast on and talk about the show. I think that is so good. Thank You for such a wonderful show!

    My Name is Dain Keilis and i am from USA, I wish to share the testimony of life experience with the general public about what this priest has just done for me, this dr okoje has just brought back my Lost hope to me with his great powers, I was infected with HIV/AIDS during my youth camp in Tobago. i never notice it until I meet this man David Morgan . We both love each other and we plane to get married. I Was surprise when we go for HIV/AIDS test, and i was tested positive. The man was so disappointed in me and was very confused because of what happened, I wanted to kill myself, but a friend of mine told me not to worry that I still have life to live. She ask me one day to followed her to the cyber cafe, when we get there, I decided search for the best way to live with HIV/AIDS, that was when i saw a testimonies from marain adasine on how a great priest heal her of HIV/AIDS. i decided to email contact the man, then you won’t believe this when i Contacted this Dr on my problems, he told me what I needed to do and how to do it, he gave me 4days to go back for the test again, I go back to the same hospital and have the same test, but the HIV/AIDS positive change to negative. I didn’t believed the doctor’s report, I went to another hospital, the same result, the greatest surprise is that, the man who left me for 2months came looking for me and said he could find it easy doing anything without me. I promise to testify and share the testimony on the internet and everywhere I go.cause the miracle that Dr okoje did for me was wonderful it even berfunes my expectations,to me I will keep on shearing this testimony until my oldest age. Inside and outside me is full of great joy.

    Mr. Perry I Love the HAHN, I hate having to wait until Tuesday for a few weeks for the show. Why don't you have the HAHN be a M-F soap opera, the fan base is there?

    Unimaginable and unbelievable. I am Tracy Jones from the United States and i have a good news to share to the entire world. Do you need your ex husband or lover urgently? I wanna tell you that you need not to worry because i have a good news for those out there that are faced or similar to such situation because there is always a hope and a solution to all problem. There is a great spell caster called Dr Eku who can really solve your problem. Getting my lover back is what i can't imagine but when I was losing Newton, I needed help and somewhere to turn badly but my Aunty told me about this spell caster who also helped her on the internet. I thought it won't work but i just tried to give this man a chance and i ordered a LOVE SPELL. Two days later, my phone rang. Newton was his old self again and wanted to come back to me! Not only come back, the spell caster opened him up to know how much I loved and needed him. This Spell Casting isn’t brainwashing, but he opened up his eyes to know how much we have to share together. I recommend anyone who is in my old situation to try him because he will help you and make things be the way it ought to be. If you have such problem or similar to this, please contact him on his email just visit DREKUPERFECTSPELLS.blogspot.com and see so many people testifying about his perfect work. thank you Dr Eku and may your gods ever reward you for your good deeds..

    Hello Tyler I just want to say what a fantastic episode this was. I love the scene with Crystal Fox (Hanna) and Tika Simpter (Candace). I really hope this makes Candace a better person. Renee Lawless and Aaron O'Connell the kitchen scene good acting. The whole cast is good. This show needs to get nominated for an Academy or NAACP. This show is the best. I can't wait until next week. I had a feeling that now Jeffrey (Gavin Houston) knows the truth about what his mother has done, he won't have anything to do with her. Neither will David (Peter Parros) Keep on keeping on Tyler God bless you

    HAHN'S was great tonight!!!! Hanna being a woman of God, finally had the strength to ask Candace for forgiveness. Jeffery put up a pretty good fight but the next episode shows that he got the business from Quincy. I think this will make him realize that he needs Melissa or a female period. I do not think that things will turn out good for Candace in the end. Kathryn is probably going to have a trick up sleeve and help her sociopath of a husband get that money back from Candace. Will Jim find out that his wife had cancer? Will Wyatt be able to handle his jail time? Will Quincy finally find Candace and if so what could he possibly do her? Who is the man that Melissa is sitting next to in the hospital? It has to be her dad. I think Veronica is helping Melissa and in turn, Melissa tries to turn Jeffery away from team "D". I hope Jeffery moves away from Wyatt and let him deal with his own madness.

      I wondered what the significance of the man in the hospital bed was; it HAS to be her dad, and Veronica is paying his medical bills if she will 'turn' Jeffrey into a straight male! What a crock! Jeffrey is gay, like Catherine told Veronica, and she refuses to hear it; their friendship is going to take a hit from this. I disagree about him being w/Melissa, though; they can be friends, but I'd rather see him w/Landon! I agree that he should dump Wyatt, who could care less about him! Yeah, Jeffrey got in some good licks, but Quincy is a killer; I hope Jeffrey sees what a demon his mother is! If Quincy hurts Candace, Warlock will kill him; he digs his Candy Cane and already told Q before, to leave her alone! But she may end up in the hospital like Benny did. Finally good to see Hannah release her hatred of Candace and confess HER sins. I'm glad she told her she LOVES her; that broke Candace's shell. Wyatt is so p.o.'d now, I think he WILL pay his dues and make Jim suffer! Now, let Candace or Hannah tell Benny EVERYTHING that happened while he was in the hospital, especially about his lowlife father TONY! *So folks, it looks like TP heard our frustration and decided to give us 11 episodes (the series started Jan. 6, and will end Mar. 17)! it's about time!

    This entire cast should be up for awards, their acting is outstanding. I was on the edge of my seat tonight. Tyler Perry is a creative genius and I applaud him and OWN for having the class to recognize what an outstanding series this show has been. Thank you all for hours of first class entertainment. Your all the best in my book!
