Media mogul Tyler Perry has always shared inspirational messages and I still watch my personal favorite, ‘Sometime’s You’re Meant To Be Hidden’ often.

Perry recently partnered with CBS to share another heart-wrenching testimony and in a short video segment aired on CBS’s This Morning last week called “Note to Self,” Perry addresses a letter to a photo of his younger self.

During the segment, Perry reads aloud from his own emotional words directed from the mind of a healed Tyler Perry of today to the abused Tyler Perry of his youth.

I was asked by CBS This Morning to do a segment called “Note To Self”. It’s where you write a letter speaking to your younger self.

Have you ever done this? If not, you should. What would you say to the child that you used to be? I’m telling you, it’s amazing. Try it. Let me know how it moves you.

Y’all give it ‘straight’ with no chaser and lately have been sending in some very entertaining and informative emails.

Apparently Gelila Bekele, the model chick that’s been spotted on Tyler’s arm on many occasions (and the one that sparked those engagement rumors a while back), actually has a boyfriend she’s been dating for several years.

Oprah Tyler Perry OWN
Super producer/director Tyler Perry and media mogul Oprah Winfrey went way back to their roots earlier today (April 3, 2013).

If it was still April 1st, I would think this is all a joke but Winfrey shared the moment via her Twitter today, along with the hash tag #SophiaMeetsMadeatumblr_mklet2kwcj1s6y1ygo1_250

According to Oprah’s blog, she and Tyler are celebrating his new shows Love Thy Neighbor and The Haves and Have Nots coming to the OWN Network, and the pair decided to dress up to celebrate.

Can you imagine the conversation between these two characters?

Madea could share tales of rolling in the hay with ashy “A”zz Mr. Brown while Miss Sophia could talk about beating Harpo’s “A”zz after he tried to beat hers.

I kid… (but not really).

Check out more photos of the unlikely duo under the cut… Continue Reading…
