YBF Folks Celebrate Tyler Perry's Atlanta Studio Opening

​ ​ ​ ​
The YBF stars came out to help Tyler Perry celebrate his grand opening of his movie and tv studio in Atlanta. Huge move for him and the black community.   Of course Mr. Smith was there. So were Oprah and Stedman. But then she busted out crying with Sidney Poitier. Lots more pics when you read the rest... The men came with the dapper looks. Cicely Tyson made an appearance. So did Angela Burt Murray, an editor of Essence Magazine. Nicole Ari Parker Kodjoe showed off her gorgeous new haircut while hitting the red carpet with her hubby Boris. Barry Bonds brought along his wife Lisa. Tasha Smith hit the carpet looking fabulous. John Legend and Kimberly Elise made appearances. Michael Jai White and his wife Cortney hit the carpet. Malik Yoba hit the carpet solo. Lynn Whitfield looked fab. Kirk Franklin and his wife looked fabulous on the carpet. Patti Patti stole the show of course. Tyler and his date for the evening actress Gelila Bekele looked stunning. Even Star Jones looked nice.  But it looks like she left her new chef man Herb at home. Heeey Ms. Jenifer. Holly Robinson Peete hit the carpet solo. And so did new mom Terri Vaughn. Eva and her man Lance rocked the carpet nicely. I see Ms. Edmunds is still looking hot these days. Denyce Lawton and Wesley Jonathan hit the carpet separately.  I wonder if things aren't peachy keen anymore with those two. And y'all already know Nick and Valerie hit the carpet. And um, who's your new girl Lamman?

Here we go..... Damn craps in

Here we go..... Damn craps in a Barrel HATERS! Leave Tyler alone! He has made his money, his mark and HISTORY! Why couldn't Spike Lee,Robert Townsand,John Singlton and Mario Van Pebbles come together and do what this man has done single -handly? I mean COME ON!, they were on the scene a full TEN YEARS ahead of Tyler Perry and all have the money. So until Somebody can creditably answer that question, the naysayers dont have S**T to say!!! I love Spike Lee and his films and have personally met him, But why compare him to Tyler Perry and his films? They Both are ground breakers They Both are Marketing Geniuses They Both are Black and They both worked OUTSIDE the Hollywood System Those are about the ONLY simularties between these two great story tellers. "Lift up and dont Tear down"!!!! Peace

I feel sad when I see that

I feel sad when I see that our people have yet to learn anything over the past 300 years. Some are upset because Tyler uses Madea a robust black woman but how effective would she be if she were a "slim" young woman with a ghetto a@@ and flesh hanging out everywhere? You hate his movies because you are only viewing them but if you actually listen to the message you would learn the true meaning of judging a "book by it's cover". If Tyler is making a mistake it is his and his alone to make. I am happy for his success and who he chooses or does not choose is a decision he has to live with. Don't be so quick to judge a man until you have walked a mile in his moccasins. By the way how many of you if your work and life were put on display would receive positive feedback from people who you don't know or don't know you {the real you} you know the one who's just trying to make ends meet and not meet the end? Just a thought*

Gelila do not look like she

Gelila do not look like she is really into Tyler, and Tyler do not look like he is in love either. They were not hugging close enough, they should have been kissing and hugging each other passionately after he just opened his studios to show him how proud she was of her man. All I see is them holding hands and when they posed for the picture they are not close enough to each other.

Donna Richardson looks nice.

Donna Richardson looks nice. I like her look. She's a fitness guru but she still looks very feminine. Ok, can we talk about how good Nicole Ari Parker's hair and makeup look? She is working it! Looks like she took a page out of Rihanna's book. She looks fabulous. Will someone please explain to me what the hell happened to Malik Yoba since New York Undercover days? I'm not feeling him right now. I used to be glued to the TV to see his fine self! And don't tell me that it is age, we get better with time!

Since watching Oprah winfrey

Since watching Oprah winfrey today, PROMOTE a White cold blooded killer who killed his mother and brother, and his book, I am convinced that Tyler has sold his soul to the devil. Oprah promoted the killer's book "murder by family" and the white psychiatrist book "dare to forgive." SHE DEVOTED HER ENTIRE SHOW TO MAKING A MURDERER WRITER A MILLIONAIRE. HOW SICK IS THAT??? Great black UNKNOWN writers who are professionals get no consideration for being on that show. This is an extremely hate filled sick person. By giving her money to his dream of owning his own studio, she has done it with the CONDITION that TYLER FIRE his black writers. Tyler has been greatly loved in this black community until he got involved with black american hating oprah winfrey. Watch Tyler be destroyed for getting involved with her. Everyone knows she is a black man hater, and will do anything to destroy black men. I'm sorry for Tyler. I believe the low life is going to spend the ENTIRE BILLION on destroying black men. She is that SICK! She hated rappers and P. Diddy for getting involved in politics with the "vote or die campaign" so this time she took over and got behind Barack. Then she got jealous of 3 6 mafia for winning an oscar when she didn't for the Color Purple and started to working to destroy the rap community, and NOW IT IS TYLER FOR PRODUCING ONE HIT MOVIE AFTER ANOTHER WHEN SHE COULDN'T EVEN WITH DENZEL AND FOREST STARRING IN IT. Tyler BEWARE of evildoers bearing gifts.

I was very proud of him for building his own studio away from Hollywood, but his latest actions have shown that he has adopted some of the same madness that goes on in Hollywood. It's hard for Black writers to make it and he of all people should know what it's like when you dont get your just due, as a Black writer. Seems like he forgot where he came from.

Are you kidding me? You sound

Are you kidding me? You sound about as sheltered and ignorant as Sarah Palin. Just because someone is born into a culture where people do things that do not follow the norm for Human Rights does not mean that she herself follows those same traditions. The woman could have been born in the States within an Ethiopian family several generations removed from being in Ethiopia. Where is your head? You are spouting stereotypes and blanket generalizations about people that you have had bad experiences with, yet have you met every single African in the world? This is the same thinking process that many racist people used to generalize Black people and peg us as uncivilized and barbaric. Divide and conquer. You are no different in that matter. And I highly doubt that he would want to be with Solange. He is much older than she is and Solange is at a different point in her life right now. I highly doubt that Solange even wishes to settle down again right now. She probably likes her independence right now and I doubt that she would be interested in TP. As for Lisa Raye, she's just getting out of a marriage and relationship, and you think that she wouldn't need a minute to get herself together? Trust, after going through a divorce, you need time to yourself to get your head together without effin' up someone. The littlest things can set you off because you haven't completely withdrawn your emotional investments in your previous relationships. And you should really do your research before you write dissertations. TP is from New Orleans, not Mississippi. And furthermore, not everyone from Mississippi are country bumpkins. Besides, seeing as how Mississippi is a part of the Deep South, hell yeah we're going to have country in us. But this is a different matter. The world is no longer xenophobic. Multiculturalism is at an all time high. So if you cannot deal with that, please find a deserted island to chill on. People make their own choices and just because it may not be what you would do, doesn't make it wrong unless it violates a federal law. Everyone has their own free will so who are you to judge someone on it? And to be honest, at times, it's seriously embarrassing to be an American. Our foreign policies, diplomacy, etc. is shot to hell. Our government has been playing World Super Cop for years and they wonder why so many people dislike them. When you show arrogance, what reply do you expect to receive? There is a level of respect that everyone deserves until they show you otherwise. I've have some bad experiences with people from all different cultures, but that doesn't mean that I treat all people from those cultures poorly based on my previous experiences. That would be foolhardy and would be me cutting myself short. Finally, the Civil Rights movement has been stagnant for awhile. The old guard only engages battles that they feel that they can win, while not addressing the real issues that plague our communities. What happened to being proactive? Look back at programs and initiatives that took place at the height of the movement and you tell me what has been done on those levels within our generation today? Get behind and support the communal programs and initiatives that are being organized right now. The only way that they will be successful is if they are smart, organized, and adequately supported, financially and physically. The fact of the matter is, you have to want something bad enough to rise to the occasion and get it. You cannot help a people unless they wish to help themselves. While there are several people in our communities who just need to be given a chance to make it and are working hard while waiting for that chance, there are others who just want a free ride. I love my people dearly but we all have to have an inner motivation despite external sociopolitical attacks that may be waged upon us daily. We have to determine what it is that we want out of life and strive for it, research, and consistently work hard until we get there. You can be your greatest inspiration or your worse degradation.

I am just glad he is not

I am just glad he is not spending all of his money on jewelry, strippers, and a huge entourage. I would much rather lose my money because my studio went bust than for some of the other reasons some of our folks have gone broke. The studio opening is a historic moment. As for the writers, if they are the ones who were writing for his television show when it first started coming on then they needed to be fired. I sat through two painful episodes before I gave up. It was atrocious. I too hope his product will improve and if his new movie is any indication then I think he is headed in the right direction. With that being said I wish him all of the success in the world. Be blessed!

Nicole Parker Kodjoe and her

Nicole Parker Kodjoe and her hubby Boris are doing the damn thing to death!! Gorgeous!! Donna Richardson Joyner's body is on point. Tom better watch his step. Misses Cicely and Patti are repping the senior set quite nicely. So regal and beautiful. I don't know how House of Payne stays on the air - let alone made it to syndication. I don't know anyone that watches it and couldn't even tell you when it's on. When he previewed it (in lieu of Girlfriends!), I wrote a letter to him and the network telling him what a load of garbage that show was. I did like "WDIGM?" and "TFTP" because Tyler seemingly stepped up his game. It doesn't do Perry any good to tell him his isht don't stank because he's black. When he does well, let him know and when it's a mess, Perry needs to hear that too. Just a side note: Please Santa, put Lance and Lamman under my tree! I promise I will be a very very very good girl, lol!

Some people will find

Some people will find negativity in their own grandmama's funeral. Please just continue your ambitions without tearing down someone else. Furthermore, I don't care for Spike Lee because he EXPLOITS black people too. He does very little for the community, but loves to put our stories out there as if he is helping us. He contributes to nothing but Morehouse College while he sails in St. Barts, with his light-skin beauty( School Daze anyone?)and rubs shoulders with the Boule, Jack & Jill and other elite organizations that are hell bent on separating themselves from black people. Please study some of ya folks before you appauld them.

His journey was his all his own and look what he has accomplished. regardless of Madea or the bible he is making profound leaps that wil lead to more profound material. To the hateful please work really hard, invest in your craft and build so that you can make your own mark. Congrats TP! Oh Patty killed it & Will is so fab!

I'm with JJ on this one. While I applaud Tyler for doing what individuals like Spike Lee and other successful independent filmmakers should have done a long time ago, I am disappointed at many of his guest for not supporting the writers that Tyler fired just because they wanted to sign a WGA Union contract which would have given them access to: 1) wanted healthcare 2) a pension 3) residuals from their work. Will, Elise, Wesley, Gary Stugis and others are all members of SAG (Screen Actors Guild)and as members of SAG they all are entitled to the benefits listed above.

[quote comment="225057"]Okay

[quote comment="225057"]Okay well excuse me for being brusque, but it's late at night and my mouth can get reckless after 12. First off, I'm happy that a brotha is coming up and owning his own shit, but fuck Tyler Perry! Aside from making shiddy movies, and using stereotypes which most of his fans seem to eat up, what the hell has he done for you? He doesn't pay your bills, doesn't cover your health care, so all you radical fans need to chill. I'm an aspiring filmmaker, a freshman in film school, and all this fool is doing is making it harder for me and my fellow generation of future black screenwriters to pass thru his bullshit. Sure, he may give roles to deserving black actors who constantly get snubbed, but his films lack QUALITY and SUBSTANCE. Unlike Spike and John Singleton's films, you cannot consider ANY of TP's productions as timeless. All he does is use 'Madea' as his crutch to blatantly demean black women, throw in some shirtless niggaz like Boris Kodjoe, add some Bible scriptures and most of you all watch his films like the motherfcker reinvented the wheel or something. Sorry for writing a book this late, but dammit, I get very angry when I see someone bullshit my craft (as I'm sure most of you all do too). Filmmaking is something I feel very passionately about, and it makes me mad when talented screenwriters like Spike, John Singleton, the Hughes Bros, and Kasi Lemons after all of their years of classic films, get swept to the side in favor of this country ass coon. It's time we wake up from the matrix fam. Like seriously. Black screenwriters, hold ya heads up! Oh yeah and congrats TP...for what it's worth.[/quote] LOL
