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).

    I feel the show is not as good as it was in the beginning- the show is dealing with many issues of the modern world- i.e. g** right, inter racial relationships interracial ,women's rights=I am disappointed in the direction the show is heading and will not continue watching it.- I personally will not watch it any longer- I preferred the show in the beginning when it dealt with the issues of the main characters- I feel there are too many issues being dealt with n0w= A EX FAN

    ****PLEASE ANSWER***** my question is this : I have spent the last 3 hours (yes the last 3 hours I have NO LIFE :-) j/k) trying to figure out who the group is that is ssinging/rapping the SONG PLAYED ON THE LAST EPISODE OF TYLER PERRYS SOAP OPERA " The haves and the have nots "; Season 3 episode 4 February;2,2015 ????? I am someone with a call a perfectionist with a very serious type A personality. I hate not knowing the answer to a question mathematical equation or any type of trivia question that somehow boggle me. I CAN'T RELAX UNTIL I HAVE EFFECTIVELY AND CORRECTLY FOUND OR SOLVED WHATEVER IT IS I AM PONDERING ABOUT.

    I love the show despite the long drawn out drama, over or under reacting. Tyler Perry is amazing at what he does, I've learned to look pass the drama and listen to the message as the story unfolds.

      Veronica's an insufferable b-tch that should end up ALONE! David can do better, and Jeffrey needs to grow a pair and tell her to b*** out of his life and let him live it the way he chooses!

    I SIMPLY LOVE YOUR PORTRAYAL OF THE HARRINGTONS. MS HARRINGTON IS OFF THE CHAIN, AWESOME ACTRESS, TRULY REPRESENTING. YOU DID AN EXCELLENT JOB WITH THIS SHOW. KOODOOS TO MS. HARINGTON FOR A JOB WELL DONE. SHE TRULY REPRESENTS MATURE LOOKING BLACK WOMEN AND HER BEHAVORS COMPLIMENT HER LOOKS. MR. HARRINGTON IS AWESOME TOO. HE IS THE PERFECT MATCH FOR HER. I DO NOT WATCH TV MUCH BUT THIS SHOW GOT ME! KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK.

    The Candace s/l is beyond ridiculous & so unrealistic! Its also SO annoying the way she mumbles "hhmmm" after almost every sentence! Like she's trying to think of what she's going to say next. Its not like anybody has too many lines to remember. Really bad acting IMO.

    I'm a Tyler and Haves and Have Not fan/supporter. I can appreciate the various story lines. However, drama is generally thought to be suspenseful and fast paced. Tyler take note! Question- is the goal not to cultivate and captivate the audience and increase viewership? Yes, it is true what they say about "short attention spans!" I'll keep watching this season.........

    Entirely too many commericals!!! 5 Minutes of watching the show and then 11 commericals every time!!! I am getting sick of watching about 25 minutes of a 60 minute show. If this keeps happening then I will just find something else to watch!
