Boo, Madea is back!
June 8th, 2021 under Tyler Perry. [ Comments: none ]

Back in 2019, Tyler Perry announced that he was no longer going to make any Madea movies. Well, that was then, and a lot has happened since A Madea Family Funeral. Things like a global pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement.

Because of all of that, Perry has declared, “We need to laugh. Too much is going on in the country. We need to laugh. So I was stunned.” Then he added his Madea voice, “But I wasn’t.”

Where will we see the 12th movie in the franchise? Perry will begin shooting the film next year, and then it will air on Netflix.

Did anyone really think we saw the last of Madea? I knew she would be back to cause trouble sooner or later. I am happy it is sooner.

The Emmys will honor Tyler Perry

Emmys


Let’s be honest, Tyler Perry is never going to get an Emmy for his acting, writing, or producing. Yet, he is getting one. For what? He, along with his foundation, “will receive the 2020 Governors Award in recognition of their unparalleled contributions to shaping the television medium,” on September 20th.

“I’m grateful for and humbled by this recognition from the Television Academy,” said Perry. “I’ve always prided myself on the work we do at the studio, our diverse representation of people from all walks of life, and the community we’ve built. My hope is that through moments like this we can remind others of the power of ownership and show that when the world doesn’t offer you a seat at the table, you can build your own.”

If any celebrity deserves it, it is him. Even before the pandemic, he would buy things for strangers all over Atlanta. He was the first one to give Cosby actor Geoffrey Owens a job on one of his shows after we found out he worked at Trader Joe’s. Then when COVID-19, the entertainment mogul made sure his shows were able to get back to work and get back to it safely.

Perry has a heart of gold and deserves to be recognized for it. At least the Television Academy got something right this year.

Tyler Perry shows us how he filmed Sistas safely at his Atlanta Studios
July 30th, 2020 under Tyler Perry. [ Comments: none ]


Last year, Tyler Perry opened up his studios at an old army barracks in Atlanta, and he never knew how helpful that was going to be a few months later.

When the coronavirus pandemic happened, production shut down all over the world. Everyone was trying to figure out how to get back to work, including Perry. Then he realized, he has all of these empty barracks on his lot that he can use to house the cast and crew for two weeks while they shot a season worth of episodes. Therefore, he opened his doors, and let them in.

The Hollywood mogul via Atlanta described the last two weeks as, “We did it! We just wrapped season 2 of Sistas in our quarantine bubble at the studio. We called it Camp Q. 360 people all living on the lot for two weeks. We tested for COVID every 4 days, and thank God we were able to all remain COVID free as the bubble held up. Now onto The Oval. Thanks for the prayers!! We can feel them. @tylerperrystudios #SistasOnBET #TheOvalOnBET”

I am beyond impressed with what he did. How can you not be?

It will be interesting to see if the other studios here in actual Hollywood will follow suit. I mean, Warner Bros could turn the Ranch into a Tyler Perry Studios. All I know is I want my TV shows back. At least I will have Perry’s to watch because he is getting it down.

Tyler Perry is once again the Angel of Atlanta!
July 17th, 2020 under Tyler Perry. [ Comments: none ]


On several occasions, Tyler Perry has given back to the residents of the city of Atlanta. Yesterday, he did it again.

He donated 1,000 $50 Kroger gift cards to the Atlanta Police Department to hand out to the people they protect and serve to help mend the relationship between the officers and themselves. The purpose is to get the two sides to talk. Hopefully, once they start talking, they won’t stop, and we will never have another George Floyd or Eric Garner.

Let’s get the conversation started because the best way to get to know someone is to ask questions and listen. It is easy to hate someone we don’t know; it is much harder to hate them when we get to know them.

When it comes to Perry, he needs to be awarded for all of his generosity.

Tyler Perry paid for seniors’ groceries at 73 stores in Atlanta and New Orleans

Tyler Perry has a heart as big as his box office numbers, and yesterday he proved it once again. The entertainment mogul paid for all of the groceries during senior hours at 29 Winn-Dixie stores in New Orleans and at 44 Kroger stores in Atlanta, according to CBS46.

Felix Turner, the Atlanta spokesman for Kroger told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, “We would like to join our customers in thanking Mr. Perry for his kindness and generosity during this unprecedented pandemic. It was truly a pleasure to see our customers fill with joy and gratitude as the news spread throughout 44 stores across metro Atlanta.”

Janette Maas told AJC that her receipt said, “Atlanta Angel” and “I got my Kroger fuel points.”

He got a lot of points. How many, we don’t know, but his generosity cost him over six digits. That goes with the $21,000 he gave to the 42 out of work employees at his favorite Houston’s restaurant in Atlanta over the weekend.

He truly is an angel. I don’t care what you think about his movies and television shows. We should support his projects because he is always giving back to the community. How many other entertainment giants can you say that about? People like the Kardashians, Mark Wahlberg, Steven Speilberg, David Geffen, Ashton Kutcher, and so on.
