Tyler Perry & Janet Jackson appeared on The Today Show yesterday to promote “Why Did I Get Married Too”. Janet was shown in an emotional clip from the show and you can honestly tell that she was really invested in the part.
Host Merideth Vieara asks Tyler about “some hairy legs” and I coulda sworn he was about to mention Mo’Nique but he had a different story to tell about a situation that occured during taping. When Merideth pointed towards Janet, Tyler quickly proclaimed that SHE didn’t have hairy legs but “I don’t know why I know that“….
All I can say is it’s obvious Tyler’s been paying attention.

My sincere condolences go out to Tyler Perry and his family on the loss of his mother, Mrs. Willie Maxine Perry. Perry announced the sad news via his Web site Tuesday, December 8th where he thanked fans for they’re prayers and well wishes.
According to Access Atlanta, Perry sent out posts on his FaceBook and Twitter pages late Tuesday morning, directing fans and followers to his Web site saying, “I just sent out an email that I’d like to share with you. Please check it out.” The announcement turned out to be a prayer request for his ailing mother who had been sick since late August. The cause of death has not been disclosed.
Maxine Perry was a pre-school teacher who worked at the New Orleans Jewish Community Center most of her life. Perry, 40, is said to have gotten inspiration from his mother, as well as his aunt, for his popular “Madea” character.
“In Loving Memory. Willie Maxine Perry. February 12, 1945 to December 8, 2009″
Tyler Perry‘s infamous Madea character will be pounding the pavement soon. No… Tyler hasn’t retired the grey haired matronly character, but is returning her to her roots. The chitlin circuit. Tyler announced recently via his email message blog (yeah he’s old school), that a new Madea play will be headed on tour in several cities nationwide.
I wanted to tell you this before the tickets went on sale in most places….Madea is officially going on tour! That’s right, a Madea play, live on tour! I have managed to carve out about a year to go on the road and see you all again.
I gotta tell you, I have missed you. There is nothing like a live performance and if you’ve never seen a Madea play, then you haven’t seen Madea at all. It is an experience, just ask someone who’s seen it…..SMILE
It’s been 5 years since I’ve been on the road and the timing just happened to fall right into place. I needed to get away from Hollywood for a second…clear my head. There is no better way to do that than to come out and see your faces and be reminded of where this all started.
The show is called MADEA’S BIG HAPPY FAMILY. I’m going to come through as many cities as I can. I know I can’t get to all of them but I’ll try and get as close as I can.
Did he actually type “smile”? I can’t. 😆
Regardless of the countless criticism received, the Madea saga just keeps right on rolling. I guess nothing can stop a wealthy Black man in a dress! Check out a list of planned tour dates below: Continue Reading…
