Tyler Perry’s The Haves and the Have Nots Theory: Did Melissa Rape Jeffery?

This particular HAHN blog is more of an opinionated blog than a theory. I just want you to keep that in mind while reading through this.

One of the most climatic points in Season 2 involved Jeffery finally having sex for the first time; with a female!


Setup on a blind date by Veronica, Jeffery meets Melissa who is practically a younger version of his mother. They both drink a lot during the date, but for different reasons…

Jeffery was highly uncomfortable being on a date with a woman because he is gay. Not to mention the fact that she was a blabbermouth so he “had” to drink in order to cope. Melissa was once in a sorority and she had been known to drink too much and even tells Jeffery that she can get a little crazy when drunk.


After the date, they both go to Jeffery’s apartment even though he really didn’t want Melissa to come up because both had been drinking and he wanted them to be responsible. However, Melissa wasn’t having it and she literally forced herself on him which resulted in drunken sex.

Most fans are quick to label Melissa as a rapist for what she did to poor Jeffery. In my opinion, I’m one of the people who say that Jeffery could have, should have and would have stopped ANY of this from happening if he had been honest with Melissa. He was more concerned with keeping her from finding out that he was gay. True he had been drinking, but he was sober enough to keep her from “raping” him.


Comparing what happened to Jeffery with what happened between Professor Cannon and Amanda really isn’t fair. Amanda was belittled and insulted before she was physically abused by Cannon. Melissa was doing the same to Jeffery (in a way) with her saying that it was time that he became that type of guy after he said that he wasn’t the kind of guy to have sex with someone he just met. Not to mention her turning on porn with his laptop (the guy must not have a password the way she easily opened up his computer and turned it on…) in order to help him get in the mood.


I did feel bad for the guy since he was only able to “get it up” for a couple of seconds because as he told Landon “I was thinking about another guy” (obviously Wyatt). In any case, if he didn’t want to tell Melissa that he was gay then he could have at least overpowered his drunk date (not physically beat her or anything but at least held her off) to the point of them not having sex.

Even Melissa said “Queer eye for a straight guy” after seeing how nicely decorated Jeffery’s apartment was. That was just a small hint to who he truly was but she did not notice it. I do wonder if she will ever know the truth about him…


How do you feel about all of this? Do you think Jeffery was raped by Melissa or because he was not honest with her was he taken advantage of in a situation that he could have easily prevented?

Tyler Perry’s The Haves and the Have Nots Theory: Did Jim Work for Mama Rose?

By Jeremy Carden

Let me just say that this blog is a “Part 2” from one of my previous blogs on the possible theory of Mama Rose being the mother of Jim Cryer.

After talking with other fans of the show (including my mom of course), it has come to my attention that if the theory about Mama Rose being Jim’s mom is wrong then in the past it is very likely that Jim was affiliated with the Malones or once worked in their organization.


This blog might be on the short side, but if you want the full theory involving the possibility of Jim being the son of Mama Rose then you can click here.

Now when it comes to the HAHN there are a lot of “mirror plots” as I call them because one character is very similar to another. When you think about it a “Have” could have a similar past or personality like a “Have Not.” I see this to be true for people like Benny (Have Not) and Amanda (Have); trust me this itself could have its own blog but I’ll get into that at another time.


I compare Candace and Jim in this particular theory because of their backgrounds. Jim’s hired muscle is the Malone group while Candace has Warlock and his crew.


The scene between Warlock and Q along with Candace swinging by the next day really adds depth to this theory. Warlock tells Q that Candace is no longer involved with “this life” and is now living large in law school and with “a judge with deep pockets.” However, that does not mean that Candace does not forget about her roots and can call on her “former family” when needed to help her solve a problem.

Jim had a similar background like Candace because he didn’t come from a privileged lifestyle growing up. It wasn’t until he married into Katheryn’s family did he come to know the life of the wealthy.

Considering that Candace was once affiliated with Warlock and his crew, it would not surprise me if at some point Jim was working with the Malones or knew of them on a personal level.


I see Warlock as Candace’s brother in the criminal underworld. True she has Benny, but I feel that War looks after her like a little sister. This is shown when he gives her $5,000 without question and is very protective of her especially when it involves Q.

Mama Rose is like a mother to Jim because of the way he can count on her when he needs assistance and she is one to give advice. Keep in mind that she says that he was better off letting them kill Candace instead of letting her go. Considering that she now has him where she wants him…Rose was right! She is confident that he will win the position as governor and even the White House! Now doesn’t that sound like a mother wanting the best for her child no matter what?


This “restaurant” that we know little to nothing about might be the key revealing the true connection between Rose and Jim. Perhaps in Season 3 we will finally learn more about this and who the Malones really are.


I really think that Jim might have been working for the Malones at some point because of how one of his first cases on the bench was allowing one of the Malone boys to walk free even though it was clear he was guilty. This might have been one of those “for old times’ sake” moves for his “former family.” Similar to how Candace would give War $100,000 for kidnapping Jim for her!

What do you think about this theory? Do you feel Rose is Jim’s mother or was Jim once in her employ? Also do you think that Candace and Jim have similar backgrounds and tactics which might explain their little game of chess between each other?
