About a "Girl" Who Refused to Just Shut up and Take Orders

You could argue that the woman on the recording didn't really set up the man on the recording; instead, she let events play out in a way that seemed quite characteristic for the Clippers owner.

On The Scene: Madea's Latest Romp Brings Out Young, Black & 'Happy' Hollywood

Comments (2)




Tyler Perry
was on a roll yesterday.

Not long after the 41 year-old filmmaker set a jam packed press conference ablaze -- with his no-holds-barred comments about Spike Lee's criticism -- at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, he and his movie studio partner, Lionsgate,literally rolled out the red carpet for the premiere of his newest movie, 'Madea's Big Happy Family,' which arrives in theaters Friday.

"If you are expecting Shakespeare in the Park, you are in the wrong place," Perry -- who portrays the scripture-dismantling, pistol-packing title character -- announced to a near capacity audience at Hollywood's Archlight Cinemas Cinemara Dome just before screening the near two-hour flick.

'Happy Family,' which also stars Loretta Devine, Cassi Davis, Bow Wow, Isaiah Mustafa, Lauren London and David and Tamela Mann, marks Perry's 11th movie to be released in a span of six years. For that fact alone, the New Orleans native proves to be a force to be reckoned with in and aroiund Tinseltown. And while some of the old Hollywood guard continues to act like they don't want to get with the program, a nice sampling of entertainment's new regime came out to support the former homeless playwright turned movie-making maverick, and what could be his latest blockbuster.

Below are pics of who showed up to take in the sites.
