The Haves & The Have Nots- “The Apple Tree”

The Haves & The Have Nots begins on a truly sad note, as Katheryn is in shock over Wyatt’s death. Hanna brings her some medicine to calm her down, but she refuses them and reminds her of her promise to help her through Wyatt’s death when the time came. Hanna sits with her longer, even when Katheryn asks her did she know something like this would happen to Wyatt. Hanna tells her she only meant that you reap what you sow, and that something bad would happen due to their part in covering up her son’s actions. Hanna reminds her she has to tell Jim about Wyatt, but Katheryn refuses, telling her she cannot bear to see him. She begs Hanna to tell him for her, again reminding her of her promise to be there for her in her time of mourning. Hanna reluctantly agrees.

Hey Mikey!

WHO AM I? That’s probably what you’re thinking? It’s simple I’m this generation’s “Dear Abby!” I was raised in the Fourth Ward of Atlanta, educated in the School of Hard Knocks, and rescued by the concrete and steel of New York City.

Everyone needs a listening ear, extra shoulder, and open arms when life gets rough. I’m your new best friend, whe it all goes south remember I’m a mouse click or tweet away. Hang in there kids, you’re gonna love kickin’ it with me!!! -MIKEY
