Ms. Pat's Unlikely Journey: From Street Hustler to TV Gavel

With a comedic twist on justice, Ms. Pat's past and a memorable appearance on Judge Joe Brown set the stage for her unique courtroom show and this week's episode of 'Ms. Patt Settles It' was filled with shenanigans!

Former crack dealer becomes TV judge. It might sound far-fetched, but that is the premise of Ms. Pat Settles It. Obviously, Ms. Pat turned her life around, and she has been very candid about her journey from the streets to becoming an Emmy-nominated comedian and actress. You can watch that play out on the Ms. Pat Show. However, even she didn’t think she’d end up with a new show where she is the judge, but here we are.

She pitched the show to BET as a producer and had someone else in mind as the judge, but the powers that be thought she’d be great.  Ms. Pat plays the neutral party in various cases, and she doesn’t hold back. She roasts people and uses her quick humor to make witty observations.

Mind you, she was once on Judge Joe Brown because her tenant left her property in Atlanta without paying. She was hilarious there, too:

And she won.

But back to Ms. Pat Settles it.

Each episode will feature multiple cases and Ms. Pat will have a jury of her peers that includes some of her celebrity and influencer friends, such as Ray Jay, Ha Ha Davis, Jazmine Luv, and more, who offer commentary from time to time. But Ms. Pat is the clear star, and on episode one, she took on three cases.

There was Zaquanna Braden, who was suing her ex, Gregory Ford, for $2,500. Zaquanna accused Gregory of stealing her transmission. Gregory claims he got it for her from his uncle and that once the relationship was over, it belonged to him. The thing is, Zaquanna paid the uncle for the transmission. Ultimately, Gregory was being petty, but Zaquanna didn’t have proof of purchase, so no one won. The next case was about a man suing his friend for taking his dog. The friend claimed that she watched the dog most of the time anyway, and after seeing a picture of the dog, Ms. Pat remarked that the dog was so cute that she’d probably steal it too, but ultimately ruled in the original owner’s favor. Finally, the last suit was Charleetra Hornes vs. Jeanine Wiggins in a dispute over a dental credit.

You get the point, It’s comedy, the law(ish), and wisdom colliding in court. Is any of this legal? Who knows, but it’s entertaining. Will you be watching on Wednesdays?
