Aired on 01/03/2017 | CC tv-14
Each week, fans of The Haves and the Have Nots sit on the edge of their seats waiting to see what Veronica Harrington will do next. She's the calculating villainess who doesn't take no for an answer—but this wasn't always the case. Here, show creator and executive producer Tyler Perry explains his writing process and how Veronica has grown and evolved.

"She kind of blended into the background, and I wondered why," Tyler says. "Well, as I started to write and explore, I realized she wasn't blending in—she was a snake watching."

Watch how Tyler helped Veronica step out of the shadows and into the spotlight.

Catch up on last season using the Watch OWN app and tune in for the all-new Season 4 premiere on Tuesday, January 3, at 9/8c.
