The Haves and Have Nots returns to television tonight on OWN and everything you loved about the fiery show returns, and with a heavy dose of drama.
Actress Tika Sumpter talks to the Tom Joyner Morning Show about what to expect this season, relives her craziest fan moment and reveals why she wasn’t so sure if this was the role for her.
“We leave off from last season Jeffery and I dealing with the aftermath of the encounter. we’re trying to see who is going to buckle under pressure first. You’re going to see Candace try to get it together now that she has lie after lie on top of a dead body. Obviously the drama with Hannah and Candace continues.”
Her craziest fan reaction:
“I had this lady, I was in a super marker in North Carolina. I was buying a Starbucks and she screams at me. She literally left her groceries and came over to me. I thought people were not going to like this character but people really like her.”
Did she initially turn the role down?
“I had to think about it. I was a little scared. I’ve never played a role like this. Oprah kind of talked me through it. Tyler broke it down and gave me the back story.”
Tune in for the season premiere Tuesday, January 5, at 9/8c.
