Cardi B Joins The “Being Mary Jane” Cast
Belcalis Almanzar a.k.a. Cardi B is adding the title paid actress to her resume. The “Love & Hip Hop”/social media star has been tapped to work alongside Gabrielle Union on BET’s “Being Mary Jane” as Mercedes, a reality star with a “ratchet personality.”
Senator Cory Booker will also appear on the show this season.
TVLine has learned exclusively that Love & Hip Hop‘s Cardi B will appear in one episode as — wait for it — a reality star named Mercedes. Per the official character description, she’s a “round-the-way beauty with a big weave, big boobs and a big booty to match her oversized, ratchet personality.”
Additionally, Senator Cory Booker will guest-star in an episode, while Vanessa Angel (Stargate SG-1) will recur as Olivia Bianchi, a real estate agent who becomes a mentor figure to Mary Jane’s brother Paul.
Being Mary Jane‘s fourth season, which premieres in January, will relocate Gabrielle Union’s character to New York City.
Congrats to Cardi on her come up! This is just the beginning…
