Cardi B Lands Role on "Being Mary Jane"

According to Shadow and Act, in the upcoming season of “Being Mary Jane” continues to add to its cast, with reality TV star Cardi B (“Love & Hip Hop”) and New Jersey senator Cory Booker, although neither is joining as a series regular.

Cardi B (real name Belcalis Almanzar) will appear in at least one episode, playing a reality TV star named Mercedes, who is described as a “round-the-way beauty with a big weave, big boobs and a big booty to match her oversized, ratchet personality”, per the official character description published by TV Line.

And Senator Booker will guest-star in an episode, likely playing himself (the upcoming 4th season will relocate Gabrielle Union’s title character to the east coast). Also, Vanessa Angel (“Stargate SG-1”) has booked a recurring role, playing a real estate agent who becomes a mentor to Mary Jane’s brother Paul (played by B.J. Britt). The trio joins previous cast additions Michael Ealy, Valarie Pettiford, Ashton Holmes and Chiké Okonkwo.
