Angela Robinson stars on OWNs hit series, the Tyler Perry-created “The Haves and the Have Nots” as “ice queen” Veronica Harrington, and the Florida native enjoys playing a character that fans sometimes love to hate. “The fan reactions are up and down. It depends on the storyline,” she says with a laugh. “I’m one of those characters will be loved and hated simultaneously in any given episode. That’s a lot of fun—to read the tweets about how much they loved the character. Then after another scene, it’s ‘I can’t stand that character!’”
With the success of ABCs “Scandal,” and other shows like Tyler Perry’s “The Haves and Have Nots” and BETs “Being Mary Jane,” has brought an intense amount of scrutiny to shows that feature black actresses as leads. Cries of “negative portrayal” have become louder and louder, due to the fact that many of the female characters on these shows are involved in extra-marital affairs.
