Season 7

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 7 premiere, "After the Storm": On Joan's last day in New Orleans volunteering helping the victims of Hurricane Katrina, she meets Aaron, a fellow volunteer who asks her out.

When Joan arrives in L.A. she is determined to repair her relationship with Maya, Lynn, and most importantly Toni.

Maya and Darnell return home from Florida where Darnell was working for NASCAR and find out that Lynn has moved in to their house.

Meanwhile, William starts to regret his marriage proposal to Monica.
