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).

    OMG, why did have to make Wyatt get raped? That was so disturbing...I know it's just a television show but I can't get it out of my mind. I felt like I was watching an episode of OZ. Is he going to commit suicide too? That was just horrible...Maybe you rewrite it as a horrible dream..I know I'm asking for much...lol

    • sp chicao #2136573

      hmmmmmmmmmmmm...did you say you didn't know how to take it...its just a show,,sounds like some mental facilty is missing it patient,what u escaped cuz u sound crazy a** h***

    • Nippy Lafayette, LA #2137309

      I did not like that happening to Wyatt either. I surely wish that Tyler had something else in mind other than him being raped.

    I was just reading everyone post, and you all are really good with this, because I wouldn't have never figure out what would be next. But this script Tyler is written is really kind of backwards because in real like you know that know man would be that stupid to let his wife dog him the way David is doing, this really gets on my nerve, and Renee thanks for that information because me and my husband was wondering was Oscar, and plan from Jim or David, this is really gonna mess Candice up after all she has been through in her life with men. and Benny just like a man just dump and I'm kind of shock Candice haven't caught on that he is seeing the old evil lady, that's gonna be a hot mess. Wyatt poor Wyatt once again I got this is Jim favorite words, and someone always end up getting hurt because he got this. Well thanks everyone for filling me end on something I was kind of wondering about. will continue to keep watching to see what season finale will be.

    It really pisses me off that Tyler has made Veronica into a villain & as I posted before I think it's because she does not like the fact that her son is gay, so she has to be crazy. I guess everyone who does not support the g** lifestyle is crazy, huh?...I can't stand Maggie & her putting the moves on David, she is a conniving horse-faced witch & I hope nothing she does works.

    • Gwendolyn Savannah Ga #2136341

      I hope Maggie plan backfire on her as well Always trying to steal our good men even though Veronica is off the rocker right now Let them stay together in sickness and health

  • Renee usa

    Celine is one delusional woman.. and I'm frankly getting tired of her... as for Hanna.... acting all holier than thou.. when she was clearly nothing but a big ole w**** back in the day... not taking care of Candace when she was a kid.. and look at her now...Oscar was brought in by David... and I hope he ends up on Candace's side when it all hits the fan...because they just looks perfect together.. and speaking of David.... he should do everything he can to help Candace because she is really the only friend his son has... and she has been there for him.. when he's been to worried about his wacko wife.... its like Landon said when it comes to his wife he bends and doesn't want to face facts about her.... he's just down right weak when it comes to her...

      What I can not understand is everyone forgetting how Kat said to Jim about the money missing from the account shortly after he got home. Jim also said when Candace got him for the car and 100,000 that Kat keeps and eye on the purse strings. Remember Kat like to do things quietly. People forget Veronica is underhanded she got Quincy out of jail to kill Candace. Kat was in on it, so why is everyone surprise at what she had done to Wyatt? She had thugs taking care of Jeffery car and a thug rape Wyatt that is her MO. It might be a thug and not one of Jim people that gets to her. That would be a h*** of a twist. I just want to see Oscar try to beg Candace pardon and they become a couple. That romance was a nice two seasons.

    I feel so sick about what happened to Wyatt, but I am Not surprised about Veronica's involvement in it. I think that could cause a friction between him and Jeffery after he was raped. If he is unsure of himself, he may start to think that he could be g** too. Then,if he tried, it could freak him out badly. I don't see Wyatt being able to cope well without drinking again or taking drugs. He may not be able to trust his parents for putting his well-being in danger like that. Don't let him feel alone in that. Bring help to him from someone female or male who was also a victim. That rapist guy should get what's coming to him, and he should give up Veronica's identity. I am anticipating Jim and Katheryn's vengeance. Veronica has made a lot of enemies with the prison rapist she will never pay, her husband and son, Candace, and soon the Cryer's as soon as they discover what she did. As for Q, perhaps Candace and her mother should share custody.

    Mostt of the plots are so easyto figue the next scene, I think Wyatt is gonna end up with being HIV positive and transmit it to Veronica's son and Veronica is gonna get arrested, she my be the next Cookie when she gets out. Candice is gonna get taken for everthing she got by her new friend that Jim has arranged to set the bate for her.
