Tyler Perry’s “Love Thy Neighbor” is the first TV project to spring forth from the much-publicized joint partnership between Television magnate Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry’s film Studio based here in Atlanta.
“Love Thy Neighbor” is described in the press release as a “family comedy that serves up good food, great laughs and a whole lotta love.” The series is written and directed by Tyler Perry.
People.com compiled a brief synopsis to familiarize you with the show’s zany characters. “Love Thy Neighbor” premieres May 29th at 9/8C on OWN.
Actress Essence Atkins expressed her displeasure with director Tyler Perry for casting Kim Kardashian in his latest flick, Temptation. In an interview with Jamie Foster Brown’s Sister 2 Sister magazine, Atkins, 41, said Perry cast Kardashian in Temptation because she had 16 million Twitter followers (half of which are bogus).
“I found it interesting that Tyler did that with Temptation, hiring Kim Kardashian because she has 16 million Twitter followers, which would seem like a brilliant marketing plan,” she said.
Atkins is one of the rare LSLH actresses who has never been cast in a Tyler Perry flick.
Reality TV star Kim Kardashian was spotted returning to LAX from Atlanta on Monday (March 18). Kardashian, 32, walked the red carpet at Tyler Perry’s Atlanta premiere of his new movie “Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor,” which she makes a cameo appearance in.

Some celebrities never cease to amaze me. Like most narcissists, they will do or say anything for attention. Increasingly violent narcissists have been in the news lately.
From murderess Jodi Arias to cop killer Christopher Dorner, and most recently, Oscar Pistorius, the double-amputee sprinter who was arrested for killing his model girlfriend at his home in South Africa on Thursday.
Yet even in times of tragedy, narcissists will seize the opportunity to draw attention to themselves.
Poor Oprah. The talk show Queen recently injured her back on her 59th birthday, trying to lift Tyler Perry’s massive birthday gift. As Perry explained on his Facebook page under the title, “I Feel So Bad.”
“I like to send really large flower arrangements to people for whatever occasion. Well, I sent one to Oprah yesterday for her birthday. She strained her back picking it up. No joke! Feel better Oprah. Happy birthday. Sorry. Next year I’m sending her one rose.”
Actress Jodie Foster finally came out of the closet after decades of rumors and denials.
Foster, 50, gave a long, rambling, disjointed speech publicly acknowledging her sexuality, fears, loneliness, children, ex-partner, and the Cecil B. DeMille award she received during Sunday night’s Golden Globes.
Foster gave some insight into the anxiety and apprehension that keeps other gay celebrities, such as Queen Latifah and Tyler Perry, hidden in their closeted sanctums.
