Movie producer, director and actor, Tyler Perry, recently confirmed news that he was expecting his first child with long time girlfriend, Gelila Bekele. but, there’s a bit of information he may have wanted to reveal, at least, not yet.
While promoting current film, ‘Gone Girl,’ Perry may have made the mistake of unveiling the sex of the unborn child.
“The greatest gift I’m being given right now is the opportunity to give the little boy in me everything I never had, so that’s what I’m excited about,” Perry stated.
Tyler Perry has just made a major announcement. The television and movie producer, writer, director and actor is getting his very own late night talk show.
Perry made the announcement on social media, on Tuesday (February 18, 2014), when he tweeted the following message. He wrote, “Look what I’m working on. Coming on next Tuesday after #HavesAndHaveNots only on @OWNTV pic.twitter.com/87hyxUNGIo,” accompanied by an image seemingly showing off the show’s set.
Tyler Perry is at it again. He has began shooting for his new film, “Single Mom’s Club” which is slated to be released May 9th of next year. Perry’s new film is about a group of single mothers who decide to come together and build a support group after an incident at their children’s school. Along with Perry, Nia Long, Wendi Mclendon-Covey,Zulay Henao, Terry Crews, Eddie Cibrian, and Cocoa Brown will be starring in the film. The film has already caused a bit of commotion causing heavy traffic in the Decatur area of Atlanta. Now, as a single mother I am praying that Perry does us justice. I am not really a Tyler Perry fan because I just can’t seem to get into his movies. But I still have faith that this will be a good one. With the correct writers and great material, it could be a hit and finally one without Madea!
Here are a few pictures of the stars of the new film:
Tyler Perry is back with ‘Madea’s Witness Protection’. This time around, an investment banker finds himself in the midst of a Ponzi scheme investigation when he and his family are placed in the witness protection program. They’re then relocated from their posh Connecticut neighborhood to Madea’s southern home. Watch the trailer below this one looks funny guys.
For the look of this trailer, Tyler Perry may have struck gold again. The movie will officially open in theaters June 29th. Will you be watching?
In a recent video blog, producer, writer, and actor Tyler Perry shares his advise on how to become successful.
He says, “Plant your seed in the ground, water it, and believe…I planted my seed, I worked really hard…focus on one thing, one area, put all of your energy into watering one area. If you spread the water across many, many seeds you won’t have as much water for that one seed. Focus on that one thing, make it your priority and stick with it not matter what.”
I must admit, although I loved many of Tyler’s plays pre-big screens and big budgets, I have since found his more recent work repetitive and, at times, buffonery. However,, I think he should be applauded for all he’s been able to achieve. He’s broken many barriers and his art is just that, his art. For fellow producers who’ve handed out their criticism I’d say to counter act those portrayals of black people they hate so much, do something about it. Show another aspect. Nonetheless, you have to give credit where it’s due and because of all his hard work, he deserves his success. Well said Tyler!
In honor of the Christmas spirit, Tyler Perry writes a touching letter to his fans; expressing his appreciation and all that he has been blessed with. In the letter, posted on his official website, he recalls the promise he made to his mother as a young boy and how his fans helped to make those dreams come true and even surpass them. He writes,
One of the Greatest Gifts I’ve Ever Been Given
When I was a little boy (I couldn’t have been more than 6 or 7), my mother and I were riding in the car one day and she looked over at this car that was passing by and her eyes lit up. In my little boy voice, I said, “what mamma?” She said, “you see that car right there, that’s beautiful.” I said to her, “when I get big I’m going to buy you that car.” She looked at me and said, “OK baby,” and smiled. I don’t know if she believed me, but she sure made me feel like I would one day.
When I was growing up, there were so many times when she was sad because of our home situation or her illnesses. She had survived breast cancer and came through some unimaginable things in her life. As a child, I felt this huge responsibility to try and make her feel better. I can remember being very young sitting with her on the sofa trying to comfort her. I would say, “when I get big, I’m going to be able to take care of you and you won’t have to worry about anything.” She would say, “OK baby,” then I would go to my room and pray. I remember this like it was yesterday. I would pray, “God, please bless me enough to be able to take care of my mother.” That’s all I wanted! My hope was just to do well enough to take care of her, that’s it. Now look at what the LORD has done….Jesus!
