Niecy is one of Patrick's daughters and Mary Jane's favorite niece. She's very confident, speaks her mind, and lives in the moment. Mary Jane feels she's lost in the world because she has a 1-year-old and is now eight months pregnant. Determined to stop this "ghetto trend," Mary Jane inserts herself in Niecy's life with a caring yet tough approach. In return Niecy, portrayed brilliantly by Raven Goodwin, helps Mary Jane tap into her fun, adventurous side. We'll see Niecy begin to transition from a complacent (as a front for scared) single mother to making a sincere effort at taking a swing at life for herself and her kids.
