Gabrielle Union, 41, appeared on "Live with Kelly and Michael" daytime talk show on Jan. 7 to promote the new series "Being Mary Jane" that returns on BET on Jan. 7 at 10 p.m.

"Being Mary Jane" is an American drama television series created by Mara Brock Akil and starring Union as Mary Jane Paul.

The pilot for the series aired on July 2, 2013. It received so many positive reviews from critics that BET renewed "Being Mary Jane" on Sept. 12, 2013, for a second season even before the first season premiered.

The first season had more than 4 million viewers who are expected to watch eight more episodes when the show returns.

"Being Mary Jane" was originally to be called" Single Black Female." The story line centers around a successful talk show host named Mary Jane Paul, played by Union. Viewers watch Mary Jane as she searches for "Mr. Right" while taking care of her professional and private family life.

Did you know Union came very close to being Olivia Pope on the hit series Scandal? Union said when she didn't get the part, she wasn't upset because she knew something else significant would come along. She was right.
