Highlighting Jim's dirtiness, he has knowingly covered for his son Wyatt's constructive manslaughter of a 6-year-old girl and serious injury of Hanna's son Benny.
All the while doing this, he contemptuously informed Hanna of his intentions of being dishonest as to Wyatt's culpability in the matter; he then followed this by having Hanna falsely arrested and jailed.
Included as part of The Have Nots is another maid of the Cryer family's, Celine Gonzales.
To that end, when Angela Robinson (the actress who plays Veronica Harrington) was interviewed about her new role on the series in late June 2013, she stated, "This is one of the only shows on television with a diverse cast that looks like America: Black, White, Latino, straight, gay, rich, and poor." The characters are filled with experiences, typically of a serious and shocking nature, that they attempt to keep secret from one another; however, their secrets tend to dramatically come to light when all is said and done.The series follows three families and their lifestyles as they intersect with one another in Savannah, Georgia: the rich, powerful, and locally very public Cryer and Harrington families (dubbed "The Haves") and the poor and destitute Young family (dubbed "The Have Nots").The Young family is headed by Hanna, a single mother who works as the Cryer family's maid and also serves as the best friend and confidante of the lady of the house, Katheryn.He and Katheryn aren't close anymore because of it.However, they present themselves to the public as having a strong and loving marriage.
