Tyler Perry's 'Haves and Have Nots' on OWN

Recommended Posts

I by no means worship Oprah, but I think she ultimately means well and has some smarts. Sometimes when she supports these things, and seems to see them as actually having moral weight, it just makes me wonder what goes on in her head...

It's like that one scene in "Being John Malkovich," 'cept everyone is saying, "Oprah!".

You already know Tika's character is going to get caught up and end up being slut-shamed (and dead, or pregnant, or broke, or with AIDS). So predictable rolleyes.gif

Or killed. tongue.png

I have hope that Tyler will prove me wrong. I'm going to watch it . . . . because I might need a job, he might need a writer's assistant in the near future, and ATL is right down the road from me. tongue.png

This message is to all my folks, especially my die-hard folks, the ones I call the “Board Members” - you know who you are :). By now I’m sure you all know that I have moved my TV shows to OWN and on May 28th and 29th I have a two night premiere. On Tuesday night, my new hot drama THE HAVES AND THE HAVE NOTS starts. I’m telling you, I put it all in this show. I not only want you to watch it but we need you to watch it for several reasons. The biggest reason is this is a fresh group of faces and I am beyond excited to see them get their shot. I make you these promises, this SHOW WILL HOOK YOU!!! I KNOW IT! Then on Wednesday night, which used to be my original night of TV, I’m going back to it with a brand new show called LOVE THY NEIGHBOR. It stars a bunch of new faces including the two folks I said I would give a sitcom to, Mamma Hattie (Patrice Lovely) and Floyd (Palmer Williams, Jr). They are so excited and this show is so funny. So Tuesday get your drama on and Wednesday get your funny on OWN, OK?

I remember when HOUSE OF PAYNE started how people tried to kill it before it started, but because you watched it and were there, that show went on into the history books with 254 episodes. Thank you for that. You did that through the grace of God. So in less than ten days THE HAVES AND THE HAVE NOTS and LOVE THY NEIGHBOR will start on OWN. I hope you are planning to watch them. Thank you for helping me help someone else. I wish you could see how excited these cast members are. They have been waiting to see their dreams come true and you know how much I love to be used by God to make that happen. You’ll see, you’ll see.

And FYI, all of you FOR BETTER OR WORSE fans, it’s coming back with a new season to OWN as well. And all you HOUSE OF PAYNE fans, hold on, I’m trying to work on something..LOL, but we’ve got to launch these new shows first, OK?

Let me know your thoughts.

Many blessings and love to you.
