The Haves and the Have Nots is a series produced by Tyler Perry. The series follows the complicated dynamic and contrasting lifestyles between three families: the rich and powerful Cryer and Harrington families and the poor Young family, as their lives intersect in Savannah, Georgia.

On the surface, the Cryers are successful and wealthly but the family’s dysfunction threatens to destroy their world. The Cryer family patriarch, Jim Cryer (John Schneider) is a powerful judge whose love for high priced escorts puts his family and political ambitions at risk. Wife and matriarch Katheryn Cryer (Renee Lawless) portrays the loving wife whose willing to do anything to protect her family’s status. Their son, Wyatt (Aaron O’Connell) is a troubled, angry jock in and out of rehab. His sister Amanda (Jaclyn Betham) is a struggling law student who tries to live the way her parents want her too but she can’t. Amanda (Jaclyn Betham) young woman Candace Young, and Amanda has no idea what she has done bringing this woman into her family. Candace has the power to ruin the entire family.

Hanna Young (Crystal Fox) is the Cryers’ maid and matriarch of her family. She prides herself on her son, Benny (Tyler Lepley) and she has strong religious beliefs and faith. Her one dark secret is her estranged daughter Candace, (Tika Sumpter) a manipulative opportunist who will do anything to get what she wants. In a bizarre twist of fate, Candace is shocked to learn that her new found friend Amanda’s father, is Jim Cryer who has been paying her for sex and who also employs her mother as his family’s maid. With this ammunition, the stage is set for what Candace believes is the opportunity of a lifetime.

The Cryer Family and the Young Family are going through the toughest times of there lives. Wyatt takes Jeffreys car, goes to a party gets high and without paying any attention he hits a little girl and Benny, Hannah’s son. The little girl dies and Benny is in the hospital on life support. But, something tells me they are going to move him from the County hospital to a private hospital and he is going to be fine. Now Benny’s father ends up in his life wanting to get to know him. He had an affair with Hannah and he was married at the time. She raised both children, Candace and Benny by herself. Now that Benny is in the hospital on life support, he needs a kidney and he gives Hannah court papers at the hospital to shut off life support so he can get Benny’s kidney. Wow, what a lot of nerve. I don’t think I could have gone on after that, I would have killed him right then and there. Hannah also wants to know where Candace’s son is, nobody has seen her son since the show aired. The Cryer family will do anything to protect Wyatt. Jim is running for office and he doesn’t need this on him right now. You have to tune in to this show, its definitely drama filled, exciting and moving. One of the best shows on television this year.
