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.

    Please consider donating to a charity that provides scholarships to survivors of child sexual abuse. Tree-Climbers.org provides both preventative education as well as college scholarships to victims and survivors of this heinous crime. What I have found as a victim/advocate is that through each educational milestone I've achieved (A.A., B.A., B.S., now MBA) that it has given me back some worth and value that was stolen from me at such a young age. I was sexually abused by my grandfather from age 5 - 13. But today, we can stop the abuse of children - through preventative education; and we can help those who have suffered this abuse by giving THEM the opportunity to pursue their dreams. If you go to Tree-Climbers (dot) org (backslash) survivor-scholarships you can read more about our organization. Every dollar donated through the end of May will be matched with all proceeds going to support Survivor Scholarships. Thank you, Roxine

    Wow! Wow!! Wow!!!... This is my first time of ever having the oportunity to writ Tyler Perry and I'm so excited about it. I can't call myself a fan of your movies or operas but an addict of your work. The blessings that come with the lessons I get from them; they're amazing. And I'm glad about these new ones and pray it'll reach out to as many as need help and comfort through Christ. I'm also glad to let you know that one of my greatest desires is to meet with you sometime in the near futre, and I believe God that I will. Am a gospel RnB singer and hope to go into doing movies in the near future if Christ tarries. Once again, Kudos!!!

    Hey Man. I would love to watch the show I cannot since I do not have cable. I hope it is as good as the others that you have created. I have enjoyed your Why we got married . . . series and can see that you have good consistent vision. I'll catch it later on DVD. . . much later.
