Actresses Angela Bassett, Jenifer Lewis and Loretta Devine posed with Gayle King.
 

Anika Noni Rose looked amazing.

Hey Gladys!

Who knew Tyler was cool with Beverly Hills housewife Lisa Vanderpump?  I like her on the show.

Shaun Robinson looked phenomenal as usual. 

Tyrese Gibson looked very dapper.

I love this outfit on Tracee Ellis Ross.

Kendu Isaacs posed with Keisha Whitaker and husband Forest Whitaker.

LL Cool J was there.

 

Lisa also posed with Miss USA 2008 Crystle Stewart.

I'm going to make this photo of Isaiah Mustafa and Lance Gross my screensaver.

Michael Ealy attended.

Tessa Thompson posed with Loretta Devine and Glenn Marshall.

Teyana Taylor made an appearance as well.

Viola Davis looked wonderful.

Jenifer Lewis is such a character.  Loves her.

Terry Crews and wife Rebecca Crews got their groove on.

The atmosphere was fabulous.

 

Tia Mowry and husband Cory Hardrict were glowing.

Later on, Tyler introduced a special music guest.

Mary J. Blige performed at the party. 

And the crowd really enjoyed her.

My favorite dress was Crystle

My favorite dress was Crystle Stewart's (Tyler's date). Does anyone know who designed it? Absolutely gorgeous! Also loved Anika's, Angell's, Neicy's and Halle's.

UMMM NOT IF YOUR AZZ IS IN

UMMM NOT IF YOUR AZZ IS IN SAG(actor's union), LIVES IN ATLANTA AND WANTING A SECONDARY OR EXTRA ROLE IN ONE OF HIS MOVIES. HE'S CHEAP & DOES NOT PAY SAG FEES FOR THOSE ROLES SO YOU CAN NEVER WORK AND MAKE A DIME ON A TYLER PERRY MOVIE WHICH IS WHY HE DOESN'T GET A DIME FROM ME.............JENNY JONES!!!!

Even after all your

Even after all your negativity, Tyler is still a very vital part of the black community. We have very few black writer's & producer's that have the platform to give our black actor's/actresses an opportunity to show their talent on the big screen. We as a people should be thankful that we do have a "Tyler Perry" & hope that many more surface. The fact that he is taking the time to show appreciation to those who have made his films the success that they were is an awesome & very noble thing. Most actor's never receive that acknowledgement from the writer's of a movie or stage play, only through an awards ceremony. Let's support Tyler with kind words of his achievements instead of such negativity.

WELL TYLER HAS BEEN HUNGRY

WELL TYLER HAS BEEN HUNGRY FOR A CHANCE & BROKE TRYING TO MAKE IT SO HE OF ALL PEOPLE SHOULD KNOW WHAT IT FEELS LIKE AND STOP BEING CHEAP NOT LETTING SAG UNION ACTORS NOT GET ANY WORK. HE SHOTS OUT ATLANTA BUT NEVER HOLDS LEADING ROLE AUDITIONS HERE. WHAT BLACK ACTOR HAS TYLER BROKE AND MADE FAMOUS. ALL OF THE LEADING ROLE ACTORS IN HIS FILMS WERE FAMOUS B4 THEY WORKED WITH TYLER PUT THEM IN ANYTHING. HE HASN'T BROKE 1 STAR!!!! AND LIKE I SAID B4 IF YOU'VE PAID YOUR DUES TO GET N2 SAG U'RE TOTALLY 'F'ed AS FAR AS WORKING WITH TYLER. YOU DON'T HAVE A CHAMCE FOR ANY OF THOSE LEFTOVER SECONDARY OR EXTRA ROLES. SO THAT'S NOT BEING NEGATIVE THAT'S JUST PUTTING IT OUT THERE AND BEING HONEST. AND BY THE WAY SAG ISN'T FREE. ITS ATLEAST $1300 TO JOIN. AND AFTER YOU'VE DONE SO MANY JOBS YOU HAVE TO JOIN OR FORGET WORKING IN A MAJOR REGION B/C THEY ONLY HIRE SAG/ATFRA UNION MEMBERS. TYLER STOP BEING CHEAP AND PASS THE ACTING DREAM FORWARD. SUPPORT GETS SUPPORT..........JENNY JONES!!!
