I'm so sorry but I only have time for a quick note. When I tell you I'm running 100 miles per hour...last week I was in LA, Cleveland, St. Louis, Baltimore and Orlando over a four-day period. Pray for me, please.
I just wanted to make sure you all are still with me, and I wanted to be sure you are planning on going to the movies next weekend to see THE FAMILY THAT PREYS. In every city I've done screenings, the reaction has been the same as WHY DID I GET MARRIED?. It's been crazy!
For all my movies in the past you all have come out in record numbers, dragging your family, friends, sorority sisters, choirs and single's ministries. I just want to say thank you for that. I hope you are planning to do the same next Friday, September 12th (my birthday weekend). A lot of people have asked me what they can get me for my birthday. I say go to the movies and see THE FAMILY THAT PREYS next weekend (smile). I never take you or your time for granted. I really hope you can make it. It would mean a great deal to me. Thanks.
OH...by the way, next week is crazy too. I'll be on GOOD MORNING AMERICA September 8th, LATE NIGHT WITH CONAN O'BRIEN and RACHEL RAY September 9th (RACHEL RAY won't air until September 18th), THE VIEW and a lot of local news stations September 11th, and finally the TOM JOYNER MORNING SHOW September 12th . Then I'm going to take a nap (smile).
One more thing then I'll let you go. For some reason I have never been on the cover of EBONY...don't ask me why. I don't know! Well, they finally asked me to do the cover and I gotta tell you, the writer they sent was so great. Margena Christian is her name and she got a lot out of me. Pick it up if you get a chance. I think the story is so inspirational. I love inspiring people.
I gotta go. They are blowing the horn now for my next interview.
See you later....
