Season 3

Girlfriends is an American television sitcom created by Mara Brock Akil and produced by Kelsey Grammer which centres around the lives of four African-American women living in Los Angeles, California, which takes a sometimes serious but mostly hilarious look at the lives of these four women as they tackle socially relevant issues common to today's society.

Meet Joan Clayton, the "mother hen" of the girlfriends: she's a successful attorney working for a prestigious law firm, very attractive and intelligent and she often puts the needs of her friends above her own.

Then there's Toni Childs, a childhood friend of Joan - she's a vain, self-obsessed money-hungry woman working as a successful realtor and she's generally the spoilt one of the four.

She later marries a white Jewish plastic surgeon but the marriage barely lasts a year.

Next is Maya Wilkes - she's Joan's very sassy assistant at the law firm and she's married to her childhood sweetheart, Darnell.

Lastly there's Lynn Searcy, a roommate of Joan and Toni at UCLA, and she's the genuinely nice one of the four. Born to multi-racial parents, she was adopted by a white family and only embraced her black background when she met Joan and Toni.

The girlfriends have an extra friend in William Dent, a senior partner at the law firm where Joan works. He's one of Joan's best male friends and becomes the "listening ear" when the girls need to lash out at the latest drama in their lives.

Girlfriends takes a sometimes serious but mostly hilarious look at the lives of these four women as they tackle socially relevant issues common to today's society.

In the Season 3 premiere, "Coming to Terms": Joan fears she has hit an all-time low after she holds a "Bring Your Ex" party, but doesn't get a single phone number.

She eventually winds up swearing off men to train for a marathon.

Maya still struggles to get Darnell to talk to her after a month apart and William threatens to throw Lynn out of his house unless she lands another job.

Meanwhile, Toni laments the lack of drama in her life.
