Character Bio

Joan Carol Clayton (played by Tracee Ellis Ross) is considered the unofficial "den mother" of the group, as she frequently looks out for her friends even at the expense of dealing with her own problems. Joan met Toni when they were children, met Lynn in college, and became friends with Maya and William while working at a law firm. She has always had problems with relationships and gave up her law career to pursue her dreams. For much of Season 7, Joan mourned the loss of her friendship with Toni. At the end of Season 7, she became engaged to Aaron Waters. She moved into his home while Aaron was deployed to Iraq and rented her house to Lynn.
