Can I just say how fine I thought Kain was in “Juice” back in the day? Anyway, he transferred those good looks over into his role as Darnell, Maya’s husband. He dealt with cheating, Maya’s friends (who he didn’t like at one point), and trying to do something bigger career wise after having a child with Maya early in life. Though the TV couple divorced, we were glad to see the two reconcile near the end of the show. After his time on the program, Kain had guest roles on shows like “CSI” and “Medium,” and he also had roles in the films “Paradise Broken,” and “For Colored Girls.” Even though, it’s safe to say everyone hated him in “For Colored Girls.” You know why…
To be honest, when I think of the character of Monica Brooks, I think I liked her better as a b***h. I’m just saying, when she was the vicious girlfriend of William who all the girls couldn’t stand, she was feisty and fun, but when she got married to William, I think the writers tried to make her a nicer replacement of Toni…No thanks. Either way though, Sharp was great on the show, and afterward, she had guest roles on “Cold Case,” and “Detroit 1-8-7,” but she was most recently a regular on the series “Are We There Yet?”
Richard T. Jones
I KNOW you didn’t think I was going to look up all of Joan’s ex-boyfriends did you? Therefore, I picked the most important boo of all, Aaron, who played her fiance around show’s end. A military man, Aaron was deployed to Iraq, and Joan moved out of her famous crib to stay in his. He wasn’t a huge character, but he was the fella that Joan was finally going to settle down with, and we all know that was HUGE for her character. Jones, who I’m sure you know from “The Wood,” stayed very busy after his stint on the show. He was the trifling Mike in “Why Did I Get Married?” (and the sequel), played James on “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles,” was in the movie “Super 8” and “The Great Divide,” and just finished the films “Forgiveness,” “Note to Self,” and is working on “Atlas Shrugged: Part 2.”
As Dr. Todd Garrett, Pace was the short, but well off plastic surgeon who captured Toni’s heart. Unfortunately, their marriage didn’t go off so well, and in the end, they ended up separating and Dr. Garrett moved to NYC. After a custody battle, Toni moved to NYC with her daughter, Morgan, to be closer to Dr. Garrett. After the show, Pace went on to do some video game voicing, and a lot of straight-to-video movies, including “The Confession,” and “The Scorpion King 3: Battle for Redemption.” He was also in a movie called “My Trip to the Dark Side,” and just finished the sequel to it this year (“My Trip Back To the Dark Side”).
Cee Cee Michaela
I had to include Michaela as the crazy cop Yvonne because I loved her character. Though she and William got off to a rough start, they ended up being very much in love and he tried to marry her. However, her character ditched William at the altar (you probably remember that information earlier in Hayes’ profile). After the show, Michaela did the movies “Angels Don’t Sleep Here” and “Hair Show,” and had a guest role on “Joan of Arcadia.” But after that, she went pretty MIA too. However, she did get married after the show in 2011, and has a purity website which promotes abstinence until marriage. She also owns a few businesses and does public speaking.
