Yes It's True!

As I sit here in Atlanta, it's raining an abundant rain. It makes me think of my mother. She loved the rain and I do too. It is befitting that this announcement would be made on a day like today. Yes it's true, Oprah and I have joined forces. We've formed a partnership for OWN and I'm super excited about it. I'll fill you in more as we get closer to the airing of my shows. I have a lot of questions for you about this, so stay close, OK? I need your help.

Talk soon,

Tyler

ALEX CROSS IS OUT IN 18 DAYS!

    Tyler I think the idea of you and Oprah joining together with the OWN network is going to be spectacular. I'm really speechless and if you knew me you would not believe I could ever be speechless. Happy and excited for both of you is what I'm feeling about the idea. Keep us posted. If it matters to you, I support you both 100%.

    One thing I forgot to mention about D'Andre. D'Andre is BRILLIANT. He loves to read up on history, he asks lots of questions. He's a child. He's my child. :-)

    You're One-of-a-kindness is simply put you're different & to be different is different. And to be different is a challenge all in its self. I have a son who is different as well. His name is D'Andre & he is now 11yrs old 6th grade & he is one of a kind for sure! Man, its not easy raising a child who is one of a kind. Not at all! He's a child & children are not responsible for themselves. This I do know! Which means I can never give up on him. That's what that mean. Being a mother is a heavy load to carry. You can wish everyday was perfect & life was a bowl of cherries. But that's not how it is. Here's a topic for you: Are people equipped these days & times to raise, teach, care for boys? Boys are activity, playful, fights, moves, jokes, carry on & most times its that type of behavior that gets male labored where there shouldn't be a labor or at least not that one anyway. Why is it that male children can't be male kids these days? There will come a time that they mature, grow up & do become men but right now a little boy isn't a man at least not yet anyway. Today society wants boys to be still & carry on like a little girl would but that's not would a little boy is. Why do u think males play sports? They are adventures, playful etc. I believe as people we must learn the difference between a male & a female. I know it sounds so basic but its much needed. And its a PROBLEM! period.

    Hi Tyler! You are divinely brilliant! It's aprox. 2:30am & I just finished watching for the second time the movie "The Family that Prey's Together" Please pardon me if I did not give the movie it's proper title. OUTSTANDING!!! In regards to your partneship for OWN? BEAUTIFUL!!! I'm soooooo sad! lol Unfortunately, I still have yet to enjoy Oprah's Network Channel. I'm hoping that will soon change, especially with you playing a special part along with Ms. Oprah Winfrey! I could only imagine! Love you as always Tyler! God speed!! Jennifer J <:><

    I'm happy because you're happy, super excited!!!! You know when those people who help to make u happy, you gotta love to see them happy in return. To him who have, more will be given. If we be faithful over few things He will make us rulers over many/much. It's a requirement! :-) I honestly think you do very well. You are one of a kind Tyler & hope u nothing but the best. LoL...you brought us Madea, someone who will never be forgotten. This is what I call a famous line to never be forgotten :...this is FOR every women that a black man has done you wrong. Lol... You didn't have to do it but you did. And let's talk about this beautiful, mind blowing wedding on Family Reunion Movie. Can u say, "Like never before!" And not only were u surprising us u were also surprising your cast. Heart-melting! The character I liked most in Madea Goes To Jail movie was the lady who came out on the streets to supply the ladies who were working the streets with clean material & a caring heart but she didn't take no stuff. I been wanting to tell u I really liked what that stood for. Your mind is ...your mind. You are one outstanding person to me. Which makes me then (and now) wonder how were u as a little boy, child, young man growing up? What was it like to raise you? I often wonder what my sons will become in this lifetime. I say this quite often, I wouldn't trade my sons cause I'm so thankful for them. The thing is I'm not a male, I'm a female. God knows something about me that I'm not aware of just yet. A mother doesn't love like a father & a father doesn't love like a mother. And I'm a mother to two sons. Lord have mercy Jesus! Gotta go now...ttyl! :-)

( Proverbs 3:5-6). I pray you stay focused and seek Godly Wisdom as well as Business Wisdom.

    Mr. Perry, When Oprah first started her network,I thought to myself, "she has no sitcoms on her network. I wonder if Tyler Perry would aire shows on her network in way to start his own network since they are both friends." And now it's like a dream come true to know that the partnership is happening. But I have one question, seeing that you're great friends with the owner of own, can you bring back House of Payne? There is so much story left in the cast. You even said yourself "To tell you the truth, I'm not ready to say goodbye to the Payne family either. I think there's still some life left in the show and that great cast. I guess we'll see." There is definitely life left in the cast. Use the chance you have now to keep that life going. Hope it can happen. Good luck, Kahlil Russell-Starks

    Congratulations to both of you. I view this an an opportunity to expand your brands. My only concern is some of the viewers will be lost because the show isn't apart of basic cable plans. The show will also need writers. I love Tyler , but writing is a skill he can improve on.
