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?

....Oh and on more serious

....Oh and on more serious issues, props 2 Tyler Perry. This is big for us black folks. No longer we gotta depend on white-run studios n production houses 2 get "our" movies out. We got power and say over what comes out so hopefully less stupid ass comedies like Soul Plane or Norbitt. LMAO @ Oprah getting a lil emotional there...

CAN YOU PLEASE ADDRESS THE

CAN YOU PLEASE ADDRESS THE NEWS ABOUT HOW TP UNFAIRLY FIRED 4 MEMBERS OF HIS WRITING STAFF FOR ASKING FOR FAIR WAGES, PENTION, HEALTHCARE BENEFITS, AND RESIDUALS VIA THE WGA? I'M ALL ABOUT A BLACK MAN DOING HIS THING, BUT ROBBING THE PEOPLE WHO HELPED YOU GET TO WHERE YOU ARE IS NOT GOD-LIKE. ITS BAD ENOUGH THAT WE ARE ALREADY FAR AND FEW IN HOLLYWOOD. BUT TO GET BLATANTLY DISRESPECTED BY ONE OF OUR OWN IS EVEN WORSE. ITS ALMOST AS IF IT IS JUSTIFICATION FOR THEM TO CONTINUE TO DO AS THEY DO...ESPECIALLY IF "OUR OWN" IS DOING IT TO US. TP IS JUST GIVING MAINSTREAM HOLLYWOOD IDEAS...
