The Evolution of the Side Chick

With the popularity of ABC’s Scandal and BET’S Being Mary Jane, it would seem as if the “side chick” a..k.a. “the other woman” is being glorified; however, if you look deeper into the show Being Mary Jane you’ll be able to pick up the messages behind the show. Tuesday night’s season finale also had a very good message in the last few minutes. Also in a recent interview on The View, Gabrielle Union was asked if she was glorifying the role of the “side chick” and she stated that she is not so much “glorifying” it, but letting others see that there are consequences behind this “popular phenom”.
