You might have some favorite Being Mary Jane quotes if you’re a fan of the show. As for me, I just may be the last African-American woman with cable who tuned into Being Mary Jane. Immediately, I was hooked. So much so, I watched back-to-back episodes on BET and stayed up way past my bedtime last night. And, I should say there are catchy quotes about being like Mary Jane every Black woman must know. I also picked some that I think women who are thinking of hooking up with a married man should learn and give a thought to.

Discovering About Mary Jane and Andre’s Affair
For nearly three hours, I remained glued to my flat screen, especially when the toned and tattooed character named Andre made an appearance. If you watch the show, you know Mary Jane falls in love, well more like in bed, with Andre, a married man with kids. Even if you’re a single woman totally against adultery, your heart probably skipped a beat when Andre dived into Mary Jane’s swimming pool, fully clothed, to screw in a lightbulb she had complained was broken.
I had to remind myself that no matter how fine Andre was, his promise to marry Mary, couldn’t be fulfilled. He already had a wife at home, crying and waiting for him to make up his mind.

Most women reading this may say they would never be Mary Jane. But, who are the Mary Janes–and we know she exists–slipping into the shoes of a mistress and hiding their affair from friends. I wondered what I would say to Mary Jane. On the outside, she’s beautiful, successful, and smart. But, for whatever reason, she doesn’t feel that way on the inside.
