In “Being Mary Jane,” Union plays Mary Jane Paul, a wildly successful TV reporter who is searching for love in all the wrong places. Union explained, “There’s three love interests for Mary Jane this season, so there’s a lot of action, a lot of sex.”
Does hubby Dwyane watch the show with her? The actress smiled, “Not often… luckily, he too looks amazing without his shirt. He’s not a bad-looking person, so he’s not short on self-esteem, nor is he jealous.”
The one show the couple does watch is “Scandal.” “Well, I watch the whole Thursday night lineup, but he joins me at 9PM. I start with ‘Grey’s Anatomy,’ and he comes in for 'Scandal’ and ‘How to Get Away with Murder.’”
Another thing Wade appreciates? Shoes! Gabrielle laughed, “He’s Imelda Marcos. He has so many shoes, he built a room just for his tennis shoes. It’s a show vault with special shelving, lighting, like if you came to visit you’re going to have to stay in a hotel because that extra guest room is a shoe show vault.”
“Being Mary Jane” airs Tuesdays on BET.
