Tyler Perry’s Fairburn, Georgia mansion has been on the market for quite some time now…but don’t fret! It could be yours for a little less than $3.7 million dollars. The home, featured in TP’s first feature film, “Diary of a Mad Black Woman,” was vacated a while back due to his lack of privacy after all you ATLiens found out the address and started doing drive-bys in the middle of the night. Tyler wants out, so he’s reduced the price so that one of you mini-ballers can live the fabulous life:
That same description sold me on my first home….well, minus the 6 bedrooms and 6.5 baths…and the theatre, study and pool. Actually, the only line that sold me was the “minutes from the airport” part, I had no idea that “minutes from the airport” would mean “hours to work”….but you live and you learn. *shrugs* Imagine…I traded all that to be near a Dillards and to fight crackheads over my mail. The travesty!
DMX’s home is also on the market…and is selling for a lot less, partially because it was raided by the police (they blew off the front door) and has since been ransacked by thieves. The foreclosed Phoenix, AZ home of the embattled rapper was purchased for over $600,000 and is now being sold at $429,900. Offers are only being accepted through Tuesday, January 6th, so ummmm if you’re in the market…check out a few flix and a tour of his crib under the cut: Continue Reading…
I know some of y’all complain about Tyler Perry‘s movies…but I, for one am a diehard fan. I still have all my bootleg copies of his old plays that I bought at the beauty shop (wassup Shonda). Sorry Tyler! As Oprah says…”when you know better you do better” I’ll make sure to buy this one when it comes out… Anywhoo, his next feature film “Tyler Perry’s Madea Goes To Jail” looks like it will be a good one to see. Here’s the summary I received yesterday:
After a high-speed freeway chase puts Madea (Tyler Perry) in front of the judge, her reprieve is short-lived as anger management issues get the best of her and land her in jail. A gleeful Joe (Tyler Perry) couldn’t be happier at Madea‘s misfortune. But Madea‘s eccentric family members the Browns (David and Tamala Mann) rally behind her, lending their special “country” brand of support. Meanwhile, Assistant District Attorney Joshua Hardaway (Derek Luke) is on the fast track to career success. But Hardaway lands a case too personal to handle – defending young prostitute and former drug addict Candace Washington (Keisha Knight Pulliam)—and asks his fiancé and fellow ADA Linda Holmes (Ion Overman) to fill in on his behalf. When Candace ends up in jail,Madea befriends the young woman, protecting her in a “motherly” way as only Madea can.
Tyler Perry (pictured above with date, actress Gelila Bekele) kicked off the grand opening of his 200,000 sq. foot/30 acre Tyler Perry Studios facility in southwest Atlanta Saturday night. The formal affair attracted thousands of who’s who as local celebs rubbed elbows with worldwide stars.
Hollywood legends Sidney Poitier, Cicely Tyson, Ruby Dee and Louis Gossett Jr. gathered with Oprah Winfrey, Hank and Billye Aaron, Andrew and Carolyn Young, Will Smith, Barry Bonds and others to celebrate the first major television and movie studio owned and run by an African-American film producer.
Oscar winner Sidney Poiter christened the studio’s opening as several members of the writer’s guild picketed outside.
I saw this trailer the other day when I went to see The Family That Preys. Preys was a great movie and I hate to admit it but I cried. Yes…me. Anyway, TP has given up the afro wig and traded it back for Madea’s golden locks. Y’all know you miss Madea! No matter what you say about it, you’re going to see it anyway. So stop complaining and just give Tyler all your money…
