This intimate conversation went in-depth about the growth of their character, how they prepared for their roles, balancing out personal and career lives, and more importantly their most memorable scenes.

When asked by journalist Brandon and Blair from The Blairisms about a message to the fans, Renee Lawless got emotional and took a moment to share what is important to her.

Renee Lawless: “My message to the fans is we are here now because of you. We would not have made it 8 seasons without you and you have offered us 8 seasons of some of the most memorable and glorious times of my life. Going into this final season I can say enjoy every minute and know that we gave it our all and we have valued you as much as you valued us.”

There are so many people who haven’t bitten the apple yet that are going to fall in love with The Haves and the Have Nots. It’s going to be staying power. It’s going to be the ability to speak into the lives of everyone. There is something in the show for everyone.
