Being Mary Jane just got a little more complicated.
Mary Jane Paul (Gabrielle Union) gets quite the wake-up call during the BET show's season four premiere, finding out that her brand new big city job isn't all it's cracked up to be.
Only ET has an exclusive first look at the series' all-new season, as Mary Jane's dreams of becoming a national lead anchor are dashed by Great Day USA's veteran anchor, Ronda Sales (Valarie Pettiford).
"I like you, Mary Jane, I do. That is why I'm going to be frank. Garrett (Ashton Holmes) has no intention of making you co-anchor," Ronda tells Mary Jane during a private meeting in her office.
"Excuse me?" a shocked Mary Jane asks.
"I know it probably seems that he is, given what transpired at Metagiates. It was Metagiates, wasn't it? Oh, of course it was," Ronda replies. "Garrett's favorite booth in the back, against the wall? A bottle of pinot, dessert? In fact, I fear the seduction started weeks ago when you were being interviewed, and undoubtedly he led you to believe that you were being groomed for my spot."
"He alluded to that, yeah." Mary Jane confirms.
"And now, he makes it seem that my departure is imminent," Ronda says.
"So, why am I being led to believe that I have a future here, if I don't?" Mary Jane presses.
Watch the clip above to see what Rhonda has to say.
Being Mary Jane returns to BET on Tuesday, Jan. 10, at a special time: 10 p.m. ET/9 p.m. CT, due to President Obama's final speech.
ET caught up
with Union last week, where she opened up about reaching a settlement
with BET in her lawsuit surrounding Being Mary Jane,
and her excitement over the new season.
"I am beyond excited," she gushed. "She's in a new city. It's a complete do-over for her and I think there's a couple good additions that I think people will be very excited about."
