In Season 3 of Being Mary Jane, primetime TV anchor Mary Jane Paul (Gabrielle Union) is rushed to the hospital after an accident. When released from the hospital, Mary Jane recovers at home. Her boredom is interrupted with the news of SNC hiring a super sexy replacement to sit in for Mary Jane. The woman keeping Mary Jane’s seat warm is Marisol Esparza.
Marisol is portrayed by Danielle Alonso.

She also appeared in the Kevin James film Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 as Divina Martinez. The New York City native was discovered by the Ford Modeling Agency when she was 15. She went on to become a Cover Girl for CoverGirl Makeup and a graduate of Marymount Manhattan College. Alonso is of Puerto Rican, Peruvian and Japanese descent.
