Judging from the pics, there was lots of Black folks dressed up and smellin good! The A’s own Tyler Perry looked mah-velous as well as Keisha Knight Pulliam and Sanaa Lathan. Omarion looked zestfully clean and Megan Good even let her brows grow out for this event!

Tyler Perry is currently negotiating with Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson to star in “Tyler Perry’s The Family That Preys”, a drama Perry wrote and will direct and star in for Lionsgate.
Already on board are Sanaa Lathan, Kathy Bates, Alfre Woodard and Rockmond Dunbar. The project will begin shooting March 2nd at Tyler Perry Studios here in Atlanta.
The script focuses on two families from different sides of the tracks that become intimately involved in love and business.
The Family That Preys is Perry’s sixth for Lionsgate. He scored his last hit with Why Did I Get Married? and will follow The Family That Preys by directing Madea Goes to Jail,” based on his stage play. Lionsgate opens Perry’s Meet the Browns, starring Angela Bassett, David and Tamela Mann and Lamman Rucker on March 21. (Source)
In related news, Jennifer Hudson’s next film, her first since winning the Oscar for her performance in Dreamgirls, will be released this summer. Miss Hudson has the devine pleasure of joining the reunited Sex in the City crew in Sex and the City: The Movie! Oh how I wish it were me!!
Sanaa Lathan has been busy as well working on the film version of the Broadway play, A Raisin in the Sun, opposite Sean “Diddy” Combs and Phylicia Rashad. The film will be shown at Sundance this year before it airs on ABC Television February 25th. Both projects are “must-sees” for me! Check out the trailer to A Raisin in the Sun(hosted by Diddy of course!) below:
