Love games

Chardon­nay wants Jason, Jason wants Kelly, and Kelly wants to dodge their drama in The Game.

TV Plus (South Africa) - - COMEDY -

Sea­son 8 Sun­days (from 9 April) SABC3 (*193) 18:30

Sports dram­edy se­ries The Game (2006- cur­rent) be­gins in the most dra­matic place pos­si­ble – with NFL player-wife Chardon­nay (Brandy Nor-wood) run­ning out of the church and rip­ping the Just Mar­ried sign off the car. This comes af­ter her hus­band Jason Pitts’ (Coby Bell) an­nounce­ment at their vow re­newal that he’s still in love with his ex-wife Kelly (Brit­tany Daniel) at the end of sea­son 7 (24 March 2017 on SABC3). But the ballers should study Chardon­nay’s play­book for tips about mak­ing an ag­gres­sive come­back af­ter a rough first half! And that’s as much foot­ball talk as you’re get­ting from us. We’re only here for the laughs, the love-tri­an­gle drama, and Chardon­nay’s ridicu­lous di­vorce party in episode 6 (14 May)


Is there any chance of our favourite funny duo Jason and Kelly get­ting back to­gether? “Some peo­ple re­ally want Kelly and Jason to­gether. Some peo­ple re­ally want him and Chardon­nay stay­ing to­gether, so I don’t know,” laughs Brit­tany. “When you truly love some­body, you don’t just get over some­body. Es­pe­cially when you have a child and when you share a life to­gether. It isn’t like the fire will go away. I think that they will al­ways love each other. We’ll just have to see this sea­son if they re­unite or not. I don’t think that Kelly will take him back that quickly. A man has got to fight for his woman.”


Mean­while, Chardon­nay won’t be go­ing down eas­ily. “Chardon­nay is ‘ turnt’ (her emo­tions are turned all the way up), okay!” says Brandy. “She was at the al­tar pro­fess­ing her love to Jason, read­ing all of her feel­ings to this man that she loves and hav­ing a mo­ment – and then he tells her that he’s still in love with his first wife Kelly. I can’t! She’s just left there… how do you come back from that? She’s still in love with Jason. Her feel­ings aren’t go­ing to go away, that’s not how it works.” Let the game be­gin!

The cast (from back left): Chardon­nay, Jason, Kelly, Keira (Lau­ren Lon­don) and Blue (Jay El­lis). Front: Ma­lik (Hosea Chanchez) and Tasha (Wendy Raquel Robin­son).
