If you look at Helen and Charles, they have a picture-perfect marriage. But beneath the facade is an attorney named Charles who is aggressive and has extramarital relationships, and a single Helen desperately attempting to save her marriage. Helen gets replaced by a hound mistress named Brenda on Charles and Helen’s 18th wedding anniversary. A U-Haul had already been reserved for her possessions. Her grandmother Madea is waiting for Helen when she gets out of the pickup after shoving Orlando out of the vehicle.
Brian, Joe’s son, is hired as a lawyer for Helen after she and Madea were discovered vandalizing Charles’ mansion with the help of Joe. In light of this, the judge orders Madea to be placed under house arrest and orders Helen to post a $5000 property or cash bond.
Brian’s daughter has a strained relationship with him after he kicks out his drug-addicted wife. The criminal who shot an undercover cop and then recruited Charles to help him convince the judge to rule in his favor is Jamison, another career felon. Jamison is sentenced to prison as a result of this snafu. When Jamison gets to get his hands on a gun, he fires at Charles in the courtroom.
Even though Brenda didn’t mind Charles dying, Orlando proposes to her before she could say anything, so Helen rushes over to a nearby hospital, where she decides to have him saved, even though she doesn’t want him to die. She tells him he has no friends or associates because Brenda took all of his money and his friends and acquaintances have abandoned him when he gets well. With no other option, the young man changes his ways, but it seems too late as Helen states she can only be his buddy. She accepts his second proposal after which he proposes a third time.
