  1. Because they are GAY!! LOL! this is probably they way of coming out without coming out while profiting off of it in the process. I guess it will make it easier for them in their natural everyday lives to deal with. My thing is how believable will their on screen romance be seeing that they are still marketable go to, young attractive Black actors who bring out the big buck for Black Media. When you want to bring Black women to the movies these are some of the guys they call, they gotta keep that hetero hyper masculine image in tact.

  2. Lmao you believed that? The only gay show that has remotely worked is Will and Grace and they watered it down heavily with humor.

    Is L.A. Complex even doing well in ratings? We all know CW will end a show quick. They only really care about 90210 and Gossip Girl.

  3. Ought to be shamed, lying on Super Soul Sunday.

    New black gay comedy and Tyler Perry told the tale.

    Perry is strange, he means well but I swear he got a hidden dungeon somewhere in his mansion.

  4. Oh my god. I have done heard and read it all. And he’s wondering why he has gay rumors. I might watch it, but I don’t know if I’m gonna like it though.

    S/N: Mel Jackson still got it. He know he looks good with that goatee combo and those thick eyebrows. Why is Omari Hardwick always playing gay roles?

  5. Most actors in the movie industry are gay or bi. You have to look at it as most or all of the guys who major in acting or theater at any college is gay. So with that how is it that in Hollywood most the guys are “straight” that is not the reality we all know and see. I heard that Chace Crawford, from Gossip Girl, is gay. I’m telling you now if I ever see him around the city I’m spitting that major G.

  6. well im just glad that he finally doing somthing for the gays. ill never forget when he said he would never do anything homosexual because he felt it was a sin and not of God

    1. He has sold his soul to the devil, hence all his riches here on Earth. When they first start out they (celebrities) are humble and give thanks etc, etc. Once they get recognition they want more and more (forget humility) and they comes the offer of success beyond belief but it comes at a price – your SOUL Nicca! Little by little the media is brainwashing the weak minded ppl of our global society.. and in my humble opinion its Shyt like this!!!! Not so much a fan anymore…I’m shocked Tyler Perry would commender a project like this. All about the $$$ and with his clout many followers will be brainwashed to this abomination! Before you HATE on Me…..remember FREEDOM OF SPEECH

      1. I agree this i getting out of hand, Then he has the nerve to be calling himself christian. Homosexuals and God cannot be used in the same sentence sorry. All those church goers calling themselves christians but doing same sex is Blasphemy. NO wonder him an opera are friends, it was said before that opera was guy. She gave Tyler his fame. and he passing off his to those who willing to give it up.

  7. I will check it out. I was a big fan of TP until I realized all the other black writers/producers/directors who actually have a good quality of work that isn’t redundant. Don’t get me wrong Tyler has written some good things (ex family that preys, why did I get married/the first one, and for colored girls) but a lot of his scripts are all the same things with new characters. And as a writer myself, that is one of the most annoying things, to witness someone with potential waste it.

    However I am pretty sure that he will leave many people bored with this one script wise. But the eye candaaaayyy we gonna see is gonna be critical lol. I was wondering about Mel today when I saw him on Steve Harvey show. And I actually d believe Omari is very straight, but I think he is one of the best actorsmHollywood has to offer. He really does know how to utilize his chops when u stop looking at his perfectly chiseled, rough around the edge face. And light skin thick pecs. He really is a good acotor. But glad to see them working and getting a steady check again. I think Mel will benefit the most from it.

  8. Also, if Omari does have some wolf I’m his blood it flew passed me. But I will definitely give him a ride all day all night. He’s perfect

  9. This rumor is going to go far, hey everybody its just a joke, someone made this whole scenario up, I read this the other day on another blog and it got people talking but of course its not true, I see many on here didnt read the whole thing were he said he made the whole thing up. This would be groundbreaking and really good if it were only true. Maybe the buzz created by this rumor will peak some producers interest to really develop something that really good. I will wait.

    1. Yes, I remember reading this a few weeks ago and I read the whole thing. It’s not gonna happen anytime soon unless everybody gets behind it and demands something like this.

  10. I don’t think y’all didn’t read the whole article – he made it up as a point about there being “no positive functional homosexual black or minority male couples on television.” The closest thing is Kal & the Obama look-alike dude. He made a good point though.

  11. Oh who cares….People get over yourselves? Is it hurting you in any way, shape, fashion or form!!!! ALL these Christians are judges now!!!!! REALLY!!!! I MEAN REALLY…let God Judge and let you mind your business! Take care of your home and life cause its probably a mess! ALL SAID IN LOVE

  12. Well now.. So officially Tyler PErry is Gay. I wonder what his church filled women will have to say about this? And Omari Hardwick keeps showing out in every “gay” role, yet he CLAIIIMMMS he had to get out of character or get deviant, some off the wall shit like that, to do the first tyler perry gay movie…hope we see him get fucked. N

    1. what? you hope what? Lawd!
      and the church ladies generally love their gays hunny; perfect company who can help them weed out the bad men, select the perfect outfit, and go to the theater in style.

  13.
