Tyler Perry is definitely a role model in my book not only did he do Whitney’s Houston’s family a major favor by flying the body of the iconic singer from Califronia to her New Jersey home on his private jet, but he has now even managed to embrace Bobbi Kristina the late singer’s daughter and get her career started as an actress in the entertainment industry. Bobbi Kristina has a role in Tyler Perry’s series for Better or Worse, I think it’s outstanding that he is willing to lend such a helping hand; it’s people like him that let me no that there are some people in Hollywood that are still real. Here’s the email that was sent out by Tyler Perry himself:
I woke up this morning to my publicist calling me saying that there were reports that Bobbi Kristina walked off the set of “For Better Or Worse”. NOT TRUE AT ALL PEOPLE!!! There is no way that she could have walked off the set because we have finshed taping the season.
After Whitney’s funeral, Krissi and I spent a long time talking about her goa…ls and dreams. She said she wanted to act. That’s when I decided to write her into “For Better Or Worse”. I thought that there would be no better way for me to help her move through the grieving than by giving her something to focus on. The one thing that I learned after my mother’s death is that you have to keep busy and you have to be around people who you can trust, so that when you do grieve you can do it in the safety and privacy of people that care.
Were there tough days for her? Yes of course. Not because of the actng or any job-related issues but because of the fact that she had just lost her mother. And being someone who knows about losing their mother, I know grief comes in different ways and you never know when it’s going to hit you or how it’s going to hit you, for that matter. Some days you’re smiling and happy and some days you’re so broken that you can’t stop crying. So yes she was grieving, but grief aside, she managed to finish her obligation and did a great job at the same time.
So please… PLEASE LEAVE THIS BABY ALONE!!!! AND SHE IS A BABY!!! Please stop the lies and give this child some room to breathe and grieve.
IF IT WAS YOUR CHILD WOULND’T YOU WANT THAT?
