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).

    HAHNS needs some quality writers, like the ones for EMPIRE. So many questions are unanswered. Instead of introducing so many new characters, how about finishing with the old ones, such as the rapist professor, David 'finishing off' Veronica, reuniting Hannah with her grandchild, Mrs Cryer's breast cancer, etc, etc, etc. The one good thing I can say is that stupid Celine did not appear in last night's show.

      I agree, so much left unanswered

    The commercials are killing me.....they show you 4-5 minutes of the soap opera and then there are 8-10 minutes of commercials....Last night, during one commercial break I counted 17 different commercials! TP other soap opera (If Loving You Is Wrong) was the same way! PITIFUL!

    Okay. HAHN'S was pretty darn hot last night. The scene where Benny ran into Quincy's car and he hopped out and beat up Quincy came from daddy's little girls. Also last week when Landon was talking with Candace at the lounge in the hotel; there was a little s*** up in Candace's line. She said "Jim wasnt there?" And Landon says," how did you know he was late." I caught that, but I can say the drama really picked up and the HAHN'S has been interesting. Would like to hear more about Kathryn's affairs, Veronica and Benny should get it on a little more, and Jeffery(Gavin Houston) is really gay. I don't think a straight man can play that part that well; not for all the money in the world(then again.....money makes the world go around.)

    I hate the new character of Veronica. Why did you destroy her image as a former top attorney with a successful marriage? She is the main reason why I wait the show, a powerful, successful black women. Please bring the beautful, smart, successful Veronica back.

    • alecia #2083330

      I agree 100% but I like the new character of verionca because that means she not afraid of anybody and that she letting be known that this her world. I love her she my favorite.

    • galdys johnson fort benning, ga #2083713

      i do believe that some mothers can"t take their only son being g** after she had so many miscarriges she just might have lost her mind and needs help to cope with her only son being g** if he is a father it won"t make a difference to veronica as for david he should burn cause since he kissed maggie and almost got busy he is curious now as to how it would be so he has lost my vote david was a good man but now he is just david the thot!

    • calvin connecticut #2084680

      I agree Denise, Veronica's character was whom I liked best in this show. To degrade her now is just foolish. And to flaw it with Benny was too over the top. This show has its great moments and yet it has delusional twists. Candace extorting money and getting away with it is beyond stupid!! Too many new people and not clearing the old ones. What happened to the professor? The pushing of the homosexuals is a bit too much. Yes society has become too excepting. This supposedly coming from a person who serves God. But Oprah &Money is Tylers God!! Wake up viewers!!

    Hat's off to Gavin Houston for a nice performance last night! I was wondering would his character ever have any masculinity. Tika, you go girl! Now Tyler Perry "you know you need an __ lol for letting Mr. Lepley go out like that but you did your thing last night. I was on the end of my seat going uh oh now...whoa...damn...wtw! Now just waiting on Friday for my fave show. Much love Tyler. Sonya
