That’s New York City-born Lisa Vidal, 48, who currently stars as Kara in the BET series “Being Mary Jane.” “Kara represents me, the working mom who is trying to juggle it all, successful at what she does and trying to do her best, but every once in a while drops the ball,” says Vidal, who has three children with her husband of 23 years, Jay Cohen, a Los Angeles real estate agent. The actress was also a regular on the TV shows “ER,” “Third Watch” and “The Event.”
