I promise you I’m not on the OWN “Greenleaf” payroll although I’ve dedicated several posts to “Greenleaf” since the show was announced some time ago! I really just enjoy the show! If you’ve never seen the show or you just want to be refreshed on what happened during its explosive Season 1 before season 2 kicks off on Wednesday, March 15 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, today is the day! All 13 episodes of Season 1 of “Greenleaf” will air on OWN starting today, Feb. 19, at 10am/9c! Also, you can catch up on the show’s complete first season on Netflix beginning March 3!
Below is a quick video recap of Season 1!
And below is what is in store for Season 2!
The Greenleaf family tree will split at the root as Jacob (Lamman Rucker, “Why Did I Get Married?”) ventures off to begin his new career with long-time rival church Triumph Ministries, breaking faith with his father, Bishop James Greenleaf (Emmy-winner Keith David, “Community”) while his mother, Lady Mae Greenleaf (Golden Globe nominee and Emmy-winner Lynn Whitfield, “The Josephine Baker Story”), struggles with Jacob’s decision to abandon the family. Meanwhile, after exposing her Uncle Mac’s (GregAlan Williams, “The Accountant”) crimes, but failing to bring him to justice, Grace “Gigi” Greenleaf (Merle Dandridge, “The Night Shift”) finds herself intrigued with someone new, Darius Nash (guest star Rick Fox, “Dope”), a local journalist who’s been closely following the ongoing threats plaguing the Greenleaf empire. Oprah Winfrey (“Selma”) also returns in her guest starring role as Mavis McCready, the sister of Lady Mae Greenleaf and a close confidante to Grace Greenleaf.
Again, the first eight episodes of the new season will debut on Wednesday, March 15 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The remaining eight episodes of the series’ second season will air in summer 2017. “Greenleaf” premiered last June as the #1 series debut in OWN history and was 2016’s #1 new cable series for women, averaging over three million viewers in Live+3 in its first season.
A few years back, we opened up our lives, via our reality TV show, and showed the many perils of marital infidelity. Through our journey, we also showed that in honoring our vows to love each other through better and worse, God honored us with a stronger marriage, friendship, and family. We don’t just have the satisfaction of sticking it out and staying together; our marriage is God’s depiction of a beautiful love story that gets better by the day. And if it’s possible for us, it’s certainly possible for you.
Our journey has inspired us to help other marriages, families, and individuals by sharing our perspective on Life, Love, Family, and Faith via a new web series entitled “10 Minutes With Teddy and Tina”, that is premiering on our YouTube channel Tuesday, Feb 14th, Valentines Day!
Since it kicks off on Valentine’s Day, we’re going to kick it off with a discussion of LOVE. Listen folks, tests become testimonies so that we can testify and possibly encourage and inspire someone else on their journey, so that’s exactly what we intend to do. It’s fun, intriguing, insightful, grown & sexy, spiritual; it’s a really good #webseries but you should see for yourself by subscribing to our YouTube channel.
Below is a snippet of the show!
Their testimony is inspiring! I will be tuning in!
Not to be outdone by Beyoncé’s and Amal Clooney’s pregnant-with-twins announcement, our girl Ciara shows that she can be pregnant AND get her dance on, leaping over sofas and what not in this cute video she released on Twitter yesterday….(We will see what Queen Bey will do at the GRAMMY Awards tonight though!) I’m assuming Ciara is a Whitney Houston fan as released this video on the anniversary of Whitney Houston’s death in 2012…I still cannot’ believe she is gone…Also, Ciara’s handsome hubby Russell Wilson and her adorable son Future make cameo appearances too…Aside: her house is decorated how I want to decorate my new house…a monochromatic color scheme with pops of color, but I digress…Check it out below…
