The Other Woman – Whitney, Wayne

Whitney, who has recently become engaged to Wayne, was his college sweetheart. In fact, she is the reason he got through college since she dedicated her time and efforts to him graduating. Note, not as a financial investment, since Whitney comes from money via her Potomac, Maryland-based parents – one an investment banker and the other a corporate attorney. Rather, she loved him, even though he took his local celebrity for granted and definitely was messing around on her.

However, once she became pregnant and agreed she’d drop out to take care of the baby, Wayne paused his extracurricular activities. At least until the baby became everything to Whitney, and nothing was left for Wayne. Oh, and if you were thinking, “Why didn’t they just get a nanny?” Jazzy already had the answer in the holster: Because Whitney’s parents were absent, and her nanny basically raised her, she wanted to be hands-on.

Unfortunately, though, her lack of affection created an opening for Jazzy to come into Wayne’s life and heart.

Should I Stay Or Should I Go? – Whitney, Wayne, Toya, Jazzy

Jazzy isn’t sure what to do regarding Wayne. He just got engaged, yet he is blowing up her phone. She has become his “safe haven,” but what does that mean for her? Jazzy is falling in love, and as she gets a Plan B pill, after being coerced to forgive Wayne, she spots Whitney in the same pharmacy, getting pregnancy tests!

Right on time, Toya calls as this happens and gives Jazzy someone to vent to and give all the tea.

Whitney

Whitney (Sh'Kia) giving Wayne the sideeye
“Whitney (Sh’Kia) giving Wayne the side-eye,” Caught Up, “Right vs. Wrong,” directed by Mark E. Swinton, 2023, (BET Plus)

From Potomac, Maryland, Whitney came from wealth. Her dad was an investment banker, and her mom was a corporate attorney. Together, they provided financial stability but not much in the way of love. Hence why, when it comes to Whitney’s relationship with Wayne, she puts up with a lot, and when it comes to raising their son, she refuses to have a nanny since that was who raised her.

Highlights

Like Toya, Enjoying The Drama

This is probably the most I’ve enjoyed drama that didn’t include someone getting hit or cursed out. I mean, yes, Wayne and Jazzy did have a back and forth, which included cursing, but being that the tone of “Caught Up” is what it is, the situation was funny. On top of that, after getting all of Whitney’s background, you are just left wondering how she would react if or when she finds out about Wayne’s latest affair.

Which left me hoping the answer would come in the next episode.

The Episode Flies By

Depending on the show, 23 minutes can feel like a long time, but with “Caught Up,” it feels like five to ten minutes. Which would be fine if, like “The Ms. Pat Show,” this had a full ten or so episode season. But with four episodes and the rush we experience? While I like the pacing, I must admit I’m worried this may end like “Angel” and leave us clamoring for more.

Summary

“Caught Up” is beginning to feel like a web short that got an influx of cash, and so they decided to expand on what they already produced, but now with a higher quality.
