Trust me, I know this one smells like a publicity stunt. But too many industry heads are talking, so there must be something to it.
In fact, the source who gave me this info also gave me a hot tip two weeks ago — which I chose to dismiss — and by the next day, the story was on every blog.
This source is responsible for a few of my hottest scoops which the national media picked up on. She is no joke when it comes to dispensing industry insider information.
That doesn’t mean this isn’t a publicity stunt. We both agreed that it might be.
As you know, director/actor Tyler Perry has done this sort of thing in the past to quiet the rumors about his sexuality. Talk show guru Oprah felt so sorry for her friend that she agreed to front for him in an International publicity stunt that went nowhere.
And talk show diva Tyra Banks refuses to speak to Perry after their publicity stunt got out of hand.
So here’s the latest: Director/actor Tyler Perry is said to be engaged to actress Taraji P. Henson, who plays his wife in Perry’s latest flick about family discord, The Family That Preys.
Perry supposedly fell head over heels (or in this case, heels over heels) for Henson on the set of ‘Prey’. He supposedly popped the question over dinner.
Either Taraji is a fag hag or she is paying no mind to the rampant rumors concerning Mr. Perry’s extra-curricular activities.
It’s easy to look the other way when your man is showering you with diamonds and other pricey trinkets.
But at 37, Taraji isn’t getting any younger, and most available men are getting turned out faster than Johnny Gill.
