Madea's Family Reunion (Play)Edit
Jackie and her husband are staying with Madea (the paternal grandmother of Jackie and her sisters) for the time being. Jackie seems to have a very close, loving relationship with her grandmother, and Madea has her granddaughter's best interest in heart.
Jackie comes with her husband, Kevin, after the family has assembled in Madea's yard after Irene's funeral. She complements the reverend's summon. After a small confrontation with Vickie, Jackie expressed to her husband that Vickie has something against all men and for him not to take it personal, and she assures him that she has his back in their marriage despite what they have been through.
Vickie greet her cousin, Lisa, whom is unsure about her love for Ronnie and still in love with A.J. She, madea, Cora and Vickie all talk about the upcoming wedding while Lisa's receives their gifts. Jackie and Vickie have a brief confrontation about men which Vickie tries to apologize by taking her to work.
Jackie and her family come outside and then Kevin notices the family seeing them come out after having resisted Tina and insisting Jackie to tell them the truth as what honestly happened between them. Tina lied and said that Kevin tried to rape her while in the garage leaving Jackie heartbroken and upset.
Later, Tina comes by high on drugs and quarrels with the family. She is cruel to her cousin, Jackie, saying she is the baby's mother and the money she gives Kevin ultimately goes back to her. Jackie attempts to stand up to her cousin, but Madea stops her knowing that she is pregnant.
Kevin comes by and notices Jackie dressed up in her black purpose dress. He asks her about the baby and if she forgives him. She says that the baby is fine, but nonchalantly say she is alright but she is going out. No too long after that, her ex boyfriend comes strolling up in the yard; a handsome younger man. Jackie introduces him to Kevin which he refuses to shake his hand. She tells him to wait outside. As he tries to prevent her from leaving with him, she shouts for Madea and she comes to her defense with her pistol threatening to shoot Kevin if her hurt Jackie.
At the family reunion, Jackie goes in the house even after Madea told her Kevin was around and wanted to talk to her. Kevin, feeling alone without Jackie, sings to Jackie which she hears and joins in making it a duet. They make up with each other.
