Go Inside the 'Greenleaf' Mansion [VIDEOS]
Just like New York City was the fifth main character in Sex and the City, the mansion that houses Bishop Greenleaf, Lady Mae, and their family on the hit OWN series, Greenleaf, is an integral character. Even though it's not living, the Greenleaf mansion knows and holds all the family's secrets and schemes. As they say, the walls have ears.
Lynn Whitfield, who extraordinarily portrays matriarch Lady Mae, treated fans of the show to a tour of the Greenleaf mansion. In part one, she gave us an insider's look at the dining room, which is where they shot the very first scene of the series, and the staircase leading to the mansion's front door, which is where many pivotal scenes have occurred.
In part two, we see the sunroom/breakfast room, which is where the family starts their day and sets up the drama that will unfold, and the gazebo, where Charity was married and the family enjoys picnics and other special moments. sunroom/breakfast room, which is where the family starts their day and sets up the drama that will unfold, and the gazebo, where Charity was married and the family enjoys picnics and other special moments.

Kevin's (Tye White) mother visits, exposing old wounds. Lady Mae (Lynn Whitfield) tries to reason with Jacob (Lamman Rucker).
