Words of wisdom

I don't know how many of you are fans of Tyler Perry...*cricket cricket*..yeah, i'm not either! LOL. He was great at first...all the original "Madea" stage plays were to die for. Diary of a Mad Black Woman, I Can Do Bad By Myself, Madea's Family Reunion, Madea's Class Reunion, Why Did I Get Married.

But then he decided he could make movies...BIG MISTAKE! The movies ended up being all the plays mixed into one (more like 1 million) movies. Same story line and plot, different title. And have you ever noticed that Tyler Perry sucks at acting when he's not in drag playing Madea? Really bad.

*okay okay, the movies aren't THAT bad. But i wouldn't suggest watching the movies and the plays because you'll just end up pissed off. Watch one or the other.

And then it got even worse with the TV Shows. House of Payne...Meet The Browns...very painful to watch and I pray you all never fall victim. SMH

But going back to those original plays. What i loved about them (aside from Madea being funny as hell and my subsequent aspirations to be the Madea of my family when i get to be about 60 70- God willing) was that there were always these random pearls of wisdom.

Here are some of my fave clips (sorry i couldn't embed them and my apologies to those with slow internet connections that may not be able to view them)

Madea's advice on being in an abusive relationship
Madea's opinion on validating your child
Relationship (romantic and non) advice
This one is just funny but raises an interesting point in raising your child and generation gaps

Take-away point of the day: Learn to love yourself! (And listen to your elders)


  1. I`m a huge Tyler fan,sad but i have to concur with you. Same everything but different Movie. I don`t mind though,as for the series, i can watch meet the Browns and House of Payne all day everyday and never get bored, lol @ when she was speaking Chinese "Pyatloutuyafet"-----> put some lotion on your . Although she is known for her craziness,1 advice that still rings a bell is the on she gave concerning relationships, "YOU CAN`T CHANGE ANYBODY,ITS A WASTE OF TIME" very true...I`m so in that Madea mood..going back to watching. ;-)
