Tika Sumpter‘s fiery character Candace returns to this season of “The Haves and Have Nots” and the girl you love to hate just may be getting back on your good side — maybe.

She talks to the Tom Joyner Morning Show about the new season and her role as Michelle Robinson in “Southside With You,” in theaters August 26th.

On Candace’s latest shenanigans:

“She’s just trying to avoid going to jail at this point. She’s committed an awful crime with Jeffery…he lied about money at this point, so just trying to stay alive.”

Her favorite part of portraying Michelle Obama:


“What I love about it is, it’s not on of those movies where the woman is chasing after the man. You have a birds eye view of what happened. It’s a beautiful love story.”

“The Haves and Have Nots” 9pm ET/PT on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network.
