I woke up this morning to my publicist calling me saying that there were reports that Bobbi Kristina walked off the set of "For Better Or Worse". NOT TRUE AT ALL PEOPLE!!! There is no way that she could have walked off the set because we have finshed taping the season.
After Whitney's funeral, Krissi and I spent a long time talking about her goals and dreams. She said she wanted to act. That’s when I decided to write her into "For Better Or Worse". I thought that there would be no better way for me to help her move through the grieving than by giving her something to focus on. The one thing that I learned after my mother's death is that you have to keep busy and you have to be around people who you can trust, so that when you do grieve you can do it in the safety and privacy of people that care.
Were there tough days for her? Yes of course. Not because of the actng or any job-related issues but because of the fact that she had just lost her mother. And being someone who knows about losing their mother, I know grief comes in different ways and you never know when it's going to hit you or how it's going to hit you, for that matter. Some days you're smiling and happy and some days you’re so broken that you can't stop crying. So yes she was grieving, but grief aside, she managed to finish her obligation and did a great job at the same time.
So please... PLEASE LEAVE THIS BABY ALONE!!!! AND SHE IS A BABY!!! Please stop the lies and give this child some room to breathe and grieve.

    Hi Tyler, It's a good thing, that you're helping this young girl to achieve her dreams. She need a lot of support, and you're giving her the oppurtunity. My advice be a model for her. God bless u.

    Mr Perry I too know what it is like to loose a mother and I can attest to the fact that there is no greater pain in life. I was 24 and the olderst of 8 children at the time who were all under 18, had just gotten married 3 months prior to her death as a result of cancer. People need to understand that here I sit now at 42 and Im still not over my mothers passing. I still cry as do all of my siblings and we each yearn for her desperately. People Please in Jesus name just pray for her. There is no time limit on when you should get over a traumatic event. Cruelty is unneeded and unwanted by those of us that have been through. Be careful of the negative energy that you put out in this universe as it will surely come back to you. I ask that God sends her a comforter by way of the holy ghost that he keeps her covered so that no weapon formed against her shall prosper amen. Thank you for your time Mr Perry

    When I saw the post from EXTRA about Bobbi Kristina quitting the show on their Facebook Page, I was hoping that Tyler Perry would see it & set the record straight & I am happy that he did. I Pray each day for the Houston & Brown Family. Thank you Jesus & Whitney that Tyler is helping Bobbi Kristina with her Career & grieving process. Be Blessed.

    Tyler, Thanks so much for what you're doing for Bobbi. Yes, she is still a "BABY" and needs guidance from someone that is not going to take advantage of her. Thank God you are ther for her! My prayers go out to her and if she is ever in Arizona, I'd be happy to spend time with her and give her a "MOMMY" hug. My Mom went home to be with the Lord almost 20 years ago and it seems like yesterday. To Bobbi, I grieve with you and am earnestly praying for you. If you need me, I'm here for you! My Ministry is with young people who are going through a rough patch. Know that you are in my prayer box and you will stay there until God tells me to take you out. Love you both (Tyler & Bobbi) more. Mizz Kathy

    Compassion is in short supply. Everyone is someone's child and yet we treat each other with such callousness. I cannot begin to imagine what Bobbi is going through and at this trying time all we can offer is prayers for her protection. Thank you for supporting her. God bless.

    Well stated. She is blessed to have you in her corner, especially at such a difficult time and when she is so vulnerable. You should teach classes! ;)

    Tyler, First, bless you for all that you do. I have to break it to ya, they will not let up on Bobbi. This is an age of "reality tv close ups", and the trend is not going away anytime soon. What Bobbi needs is love, support and direction. Be in her corner and encourage others to do the same. Shield her from the junk by drowning out the madness. They say the first 5 people around you say a lot about your character. I hope those 5 speak of happiness, perseverance, success, and love. CJ from MoreLemonsPlease.com

    It had been some time since your last email and I was wondering how you were. Now I know, thanks for your email. About Bobbi Cristina you are right; poor girl lost her mom and people don't leave her alone; I feel for her. I lost my husband 3 yrs ago and I'm still greaving. I am so glad u considered her in the new show "For Better or for Worst". Can't wait to see the new season.
