sent out a mass email yesterday to address all the controversy and hate he’s been getting surrounding his decision to cast Kim Kardashian
for a role in his new film, “The Marriage Counselor”.
Black actresses aren’t happy and many fans have expressed their disappointment about the situation. Some have even threatened to boycott the film if TP doesn’t boot Kim K from the project.
Well Tyler wants all his disgruntled customers to know that they’ve been hard and now can he wants a moment to speak…
I think many of you know that this is a very difficult time of year for me, so what I try to do is make sure that I’m working during this time. All I wanted to do was shoot a great film and try to keep my mind off the holiday grief that I have been experiencing for the past two years. I could not have imagined I’d be getting all these emails about Kim Kardashian. I HAVE SEEN THEM!! YOU HAVE BEEN HEARD!! …LOL.
Now, may I say something? Can a brother get a word in?….LOL. Y’all gave me a new movie title, Tyler Perry’s “Diary of a Mad Black Woman Cause You Hired Kim Kardashian, Don’t Make Me Take Off My Earrings and Boycott Yo A**.”…LOL. Some of my ladies are upset.
Ok, all jokes aside, can I have my say? Will you at least here me out? Continue Reading…
Actress Holly Robinson Peete is best known for her dramatic efforts on 21 Jump Street and Hangin’ With Mr. Cooper, so she should know a thing or two about being a black actress in Hollywood. Right?
The actress, who hilariously chose Lil Wayne as this year’s Halloween costume, appeared with her three kids for the premiere of “Happy Feet” at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre on November 13, 2011 in Hollywood, California.
Holly is all smiles in the photos, but in a recent interview, Holly gives her 2cents about Tyler Perry’s decision to cast Kim Kardashian in his latest film, The Marriage Counselor.

Super producer Tyler Perry was NOT a happy camper when the lights in his southwest Atlanta area studio abruptly went off in the midst of a busy work day.
Perry was smack dab in the middle of filming for his new TBS show “For Better or For Worse” when a “blackout” occurred and he and his film crew had been patiently waiting for the power to resume.
After an hour or so without lights, the media mogul hilariously decides to call the Georgia Power company to complain about the situation.
Perry initially gets caught in a loop as he battles with the dreaded automated answering system, but then gets transferred to a live person only after getting frustrated and threatening to ‘whoop some “A”zz’!
He’s Tyler Perry dammit!! And he knows he paid that dayum light bill….

Well… Kim Kardashian has landed in Atlanta and it seems she’s brought a ton of controversy with her.
As I reported a few weeks back, Kim K. was cast in Tyler Perry’s upcoming movie, “The Marriage Counselor” and she recently arrived on set to film a few of her scenes.
While a few readers here at StraightFromTheA.com made it known they felt some kinda way about Kim’s addition to the cast, I had no idea that it was the overall consensus.
Apparently many of Perry’s fans feel the same and want the reality show starlit booted from the project, so much so… that some have threatened a boycott!!

I’ve been stressing a whole lot lately about “the blawg” (as I call it in my country slang) and about 10 days ago Tyler Perry
‘s inspirational email hit my inbox.
In this segment of “Inspirational Corner,” which TP posts his website and sends in a newsletter to his many fans and followers, he says “maybe you’re being hidden on purpose”.
A friend of mind called me up and said, ‘you’re contageous’… I’m gonna start my own business
The Bible says ‘never despise small beginnings’. There are things that happen out of the smallest little start that can change the world.
He was telling me how frustrated he was how nobody notices him… nobody sees him… how nobody will give him a break. And I explained to him about how, even in my own life, how sometimes, people are out there pushing, there out there trying to be seen, they’re doing all this stuff… sometimes God will hide you.
