In Part 2 of Tyler Perry’s Sistas, Gary’s ex-fiancée Jasmine has defended Andi with several women she paid to embarrass a lawyer.
Andi fought back as best she could against all three attackers in the garage at her work, but she couldn’t get out until her girl Fatima rolled up with a Glock. and knock them down.
Fast-forward to Season 4, and now Fatima can use Andi’s professional and personal support, especially if Hayden presses the charge, but will Andi come out on top? KJ Smith, who plays Andi on the hugely popular BET show, says that it could take a while for Andi to return the favor – if she ever returns it at all.
“Andi owes Fatima,” Smith candidly told TVLine. “But you have to remember, not everyone is built the same. Just because Fatima was there for Andi doesn’t mean Andi will do it for her. There are friends to fight, and there are friends to run. They will call and complain but not necessarily fight for you. It will be interesting to see what kind of person Andi really is. “
Smith, who is taking on a new role on Book of Power III: Raising Kanan later this year, said before fans start attacking her on Twitter, she hopes they will be patient with Andi as things work out this season.
Smith commented: “I don’t think we stand a chance of seeing Andi’s evolution as a friend. “For the first few seasons, Andi didn’t show up as she could because she was so wrapped up in her relationship with Gary. She constantly disappoints her friends by arriving late and leaving early. She appears more but depends on her luck. Now that her life is on the rise, what kind of friend will she be? There are women on this planet like this. I know a little. They have to grow into better friends. “
Part of the problem, Smith revealed, was Andi’s loyalty to Fatima and Karen. She loves both for different reasons, but needs to be more honest.
“If you can’t grow with your group of friends, is that your group of friends?” Smith asked wisely. “Andi will eventually become a better friend, and I love that. You have to learn the love language of your friends. She’s still figuring it out. Andi sees potential in Fatima and Zac, and she doesn’t want to lie about it to Karen when Zac treats Karen like a dog.”
In the end, Andi could lose Fatima and Karen’s friendship if she’s not careful.
“It’s hard to be diplomatic one hundred percent of the time, especially when you feel like someone is questioning your loyalty as a friend because they’re jealous,” Smith surmised. Smith conjectured. “It is a worthy issue. Karen needs to feel worthy of love and friendship and see that Andi can be friends with Fatima too. Fatima saved Andi’s life, and they cherish each other. Hopefully, Karen will grow up to see that and let go of the past.”
