Patricia ‘Ms. Pat’ Williams and Jordan E. Cooper on season 3 of ‘The Ms. Pat Show’

“The Ms. Pat Show” is back! The Emmy-nominated BET+ sitcom has returned for a third season, and theGrio caught up with star and co-creator Patricia “Ms. Pat” Williams and co-creator and writer Jordan E. Cooper.

Williams also spoke to responses she gets from fans, especially while she is out…
