'Tyler Perry Sistas': Five Reasons Why Marie Willis is a Villain

Legendary actress Tonya Pinkins is bringing the drama to 'Sistas.'

“Tyler Perry’s Sistas” always seems to have a new surprise for us, whether it’s a crazy plot twist or a new character. This season, a lot is going on, per usual. Still, we are getting some interesting developments regarding Marie Willis, played by Tonya Pinkins, the brash billionaire, and Andi and Hayden, who have to work with her regarding her divorce. At first, it seemed like Pinkins was another routine-demanding client, but after that last episode, we know there’s a lot more than we expected to see what she might bring to the table, and it’s not good. Here are five reasons why Marie Willis might lowkey be a new villain on the show. 

She’s a Billionaire

This is self-explanatory. It’s not that all billionaires are wicked, but it’s also hard not to stereotype. Plus, we don’t fully know how Marie Willis came into her riches, which is shady. Also, seeing her personality, it’s not hard to assume that she bulldozed her way over quite a few people and situations to get to the top. 

She Stresses Everyone Out

She is not easy to deal with and almost seems to delight in the fear she causes Andi and Hayden. She knows that if she says, “jump,” they will ask her how high.

She’s Selfish 

It’s all about her. She is a selfish client and wants the world to stop for her. That’s not necessarily a dastardly quality, but it’s not good, and we all know that all good villains are selfish. Their actions serve their best and only interests, which always revolve around them.  

She’s Not Ethical 

We’ll have to find out if she actually went there with Hayden, but at the moment, it seems like that’s what happened. There is the chance that Hayden turned her down, but even if he does, she’s the one who initiated things. There’s no way around that, and we all know how sleazy it would be for a client and lawyer to have some sort of lascivious relationship. 

She Likes to Threaten People

As soon as she realizes she might not get her way, she threatens people’s livelihoods, which increases the fear factor. It’s the villain's way.
