Perry’s work always has such strong Christian themes as the backdrop, so I wondered did he get married and I missed the news? But I think the more likely answer is that Tyler;s probably going to adopt or have a child through some type of surrogacy situation.And if I had to guess, I’d assume that Bekele is not the mother of this child.Joseph (Jason Olive) is Marcus’ best friend and business partner who’s been devastated by his breakup with his longtime girlfriend, Leslie (Crystle Stewart).Tired of waiting for a proposal from Joseph, she’s moved on to bigger and better things — while staying focused on her career and her undying friendship with Angela. From Perry, the spinoff “meets back up with Curtis and Ella Payne (stars La Van Davis and Cassi Davis reprising their roles) who are trying to enjoy their retirement in Florida only to get roped into a real estate deal that will tumble their lives like clothes in a dryer.” LOS ANGELES – Continuing its successful partnership with prolific producer Tyler Perry, OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network announced today a 38-episode order for a new comedy series from Perry, “The Paynes,” a spinoff of his popular series “House of Payne.” The network has also ordered 44 additional episodes of Perry’s hit OWN drama series “The Haves and the Have Nots” and 18 episodes of “If Loving You is Wrong.” Written, directed and produced by Tyler Perry, “The Paynes” meets back up with Curtis and Ella Payne (stars La Van Davis and Cassi Davis reprising their roles) who are trying to enjoy their retirement in Florida only to get roped into a real estate deal that will tumble their lives like clothes in a dryer.The comedy has begun production at the new Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta and will premiere on OWN in 2018. Both series will air through 2017 with 22 and 20 episodes respectively.Am I the last person to know that Tyler Perry isn’t gay? Popular internet celebrity, and former friend to the Madea creator, Walter Hampton, has recently outed Tyler Perry and, presumably, paid a hefty price for it.I thought it was common knowledge that he was but now I’m searching around and finding that he’s never come out. According to Media Take Out, Hampton came out and revealed Tyler was a flamboyant gay man before he made it big in Hollywood and went back in the closet so as not to upset his huge mass of black church-following fans that pay loads of money to watch his Madea films.
“Love Thy Neighbor” will premiere its fourth season on Saturday, March 4 with back-to-back episodes at 9 p.m. “Tyler’s shows are must see TV for his loyal audience and we are excited to offer up a brand-new comedy and more episodes of their favorite Tyler dramas on OWN.Would the church going black community really stop watching Madea (and all his other crap/obvious/quasi-insulting films) if he said he liked men?That seems odd to me in this day and age but it shouldn’t be too much of a shock.It just goes to show you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover even if that cover spends half its time dressed up as a woman. After making the statement he was brutally attacked.Walter Hampton had his face and arm slashed although it is not clear if one thing had to do with the other. Is Tyler Perry gay and trying to keep it hush hush so he won’t lose his staple audience?
