Tyler Perry’s House of Payne – the #1 rated comedy series on cable among African Americans for 2020 – tells the story of a multigenerational, working class family who experiences all of life’s struggles with faith, love and most importantly humor. Retired fire chief Curtis Payne and his wife Ella have their lives and home turned upside down when an unexpected event forces their nephew, CJ and his kids to move into the house, putting three generations under one roof.

The Paynes – now in their eighth season – are back Tuesday nights on BET and here to tell you about what’s in store for upcoming episodes is Cassi Davis Patton, who plays the matriarch of the family, Ella Payne.

Cassi has been a frequent collaborator with Tyler Perry for many years having appeared in several films and stage productions including Daddy’s Little Girls, Madea’s Big Happy Family, Boo!
