I Need Your Help

This message is to all my folks, especially my die-hard folks, the ones I call the “Board Members” - you know who you are :).  By now I’m sure you all know that I have moved my TV shows to OWN and on May 28th and 29th I have a two night premiere. On Tuesday night, my new hot drama THE HAVES AND THE HAVE NOTS starts. I’m telling you, I put it all in this show. I not only want you to watch it but we need you to watch it for several reasons. The biggest reason is this is a fresh group of faces and I am beyond excited to see them get their shot. I make you these promises, this SHOW WILL HOOK YOU!!!  I KNOW IT! Then on Wednesday night, which used to be my original night of TV, I’m going back to it with a brand new show called LOVE THY NEIGHBOR. It stars a bunch of new faces including the two folks I said I would give a sitcom to, Mamma Hattie (Patrice Lovely) and Floyd (Palmer Williams, Jr). They are so excited and this show is so funny. So Tuesday get your drama on and Wednesday get your funny on OWN, OK?  

I remember when HOUSE OF PAYNE started how people tried to kill it before it started, but because you watched it and were there, that show went on into the history books with 254 episodes. Thank you for that. You did that through the grace of God. So in less than ten days THE HAVES AND THE HAVE NOTS and LOVE THY NEIGHBOR will start on OWN.  I hope you are planning to watch them. Thank you for helping me help someone else. I wish you could see how excited these cast members are. They have been waiting to see their dreams come true and you know how much I love to be used by God to make that happen.  You’ll see, you’ll see.

And FYI, all of you FOR BETTER OR WORSE fans, it’s coming back with a new season to OWN as well. And all you HOUSE OF PAYNE fans, hold on, I’m trying to work on something..LOL, but we’ve got to launch these new shows first, OK?

Let me know your thoughts.

Many blessings and love to you.

    I can't wait to see these new shows. YES, I will be watching. I love your work and do not get tired of watching all your movies, shows, reruns over and over again. I think that the laughter and joy that you provide for me and my family improves our health and well being. (@ ways in the message and the belly laughs). I love ya' and keep up the refreshing and good works.

    I wish I was able to watch your shows but due to the overwhelming costs, I have canceled my cable package. Any chance of OWN network allowing your shows to be viewed on HULU Plus or Netflix? I would love to watch your shows, and support your work whenever I can. Please keep doing what you do!

    Sadly, I will not be able to watch any of your new shows or any of my all-time FAVORITES, as DirecTV has decided to charge to view OWN. Notwithstanding, here's wishing you ALL the success you deserve. Over the years, I LOVED "House of Payne" and later "Meet the Browns." "For Better or Worse" was my weekly-feed on a good nighttime soap. ALL of the shows were great! I wish you and Ms. Winfrey much MORE success in your endeavors. T.T.F.N.

    I'm happy for your move to OWN but next time can you please put the part about "For Better Or Worse" at the beginning. I literally read every other word until you started talking about that show. I have to know whats happening with them. Now HOUSE OF PAYNE! Oh my goodness. I really hope you are seriously thinking about bringing them back. Now don't fret I did go back and read the beginning of your message and I have already set my DVR to record the two new shows.

    Mr. Perry If you are in the Houston TX area on June 22, 2013 Come check out my daughter's play "Girls Night Out" I know you will be blessed. Playwriting is just one of my daughters attributes. The Lord has blessed her with many more, she just needs the right person see her at work. I think that person is YOU!
