When the Have's and the Have Nots first started last season I liked(but not loved) Veronica. Veronica is married to David who is the colleague of Jim. Jim is married to Katherine. Both couples have sons who are best friends. I know, its a mess. READ MORE>>> The Haves and the Have Nots
Veronica is very dramatic and unnecessarily snobby! Just as Black and Bougie as she wanted to be. I was secretly clapping like, "Diva get it!" I like seeing Black Women in different roles and from different perspectives.
However, this season she has shown another side that I just cannot stomach. She is so uncomfortable with her son's homosexuality that she is threatening him with a lifetime in jail unless he lives his life on the Down Low? Whut? She even has a file full of women for him to choose from....a Romney, LAWD!
Veronica makes Mama Joyce look like a saint, Veronica has insurance on poor Jeffery's behavior? What Miss Veronica does not realize is that who Jeffery is will be revealed eventually.
What do you think about how scandalous Veronica has been behaving?
Haves and the Have Nots Real Life Experiences
How do you think that this reflects real life? I really appreciate Tyler Perry for using this platform of the Haves and the Have Nots for bringing this common parental practice to the forefront and I appreciate how a relatable mother can go from doting on everything about her son to despising him for his sexuality. This is a topic not often discussed in the Black community. For people who are not gay, we are easily transferred into Jeffery's shoes. You could empathize with him completely...so if you are on the homophobic fence, this can make you see the world from somebody else's perspective. Excellent work TP.
What say you about Veronica?
