Queen Sugar is back tonight and we finally get to meet Charley Bordelon mother.
When Queen Sugar returns tonight, there is a media frenzy around Charley and Davis divorce. Enter Charley’s snooty mother (played by Sharon Lawrence) to see what has happened that her daughter is not living “the life” in the big city anymore.
“Lorna is a white woman who chose to raise and educate her biracial daughter in a progressive part of the country,” Lawrence says. “She gave Charley the best education, the best pedigree, the best shot in life.” Now Lorna is horrified that Charley, who used to be a hotshot sports manager negotiating billion-dollar contracts, has gone back to her roots in Louisiana to run the family’s sugarcane business.”
“Lorna feels like the ‘other’ in this world of African-Americans and distanced herself from Charley because it was emotionally easier to be unavailable,” Lawrence says. “Things are about to get very deep and very messy.”
