For those of you who are waiting on Season 6 of The Haves and Have Nots to return, the wait is almost over. On Tuesday, January 3, 2017 we will get a chance to see what Tyler Perry is cooking up for us. Season 5 ended with such a bang that it is a no-brainer for all of us fans to be sitting on the edge of our seats in anticipation. For those of you that have no idea what I’m talking about, trust me on this one……..You need to go to or on-demand or whatever way you can to get caught up. Tyler has several dramas playing out on OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network) that are worth watching but…..The Haves and Have Nots are most definitely my favorites. Above is a trailer for the upcoming season. Tell me what you think.


If you’re a fan of this show, I know you’re like me and can’t wait for it to start again.  Well…… tomorrow night we get to see what we are all waiting for.  The drama begins again on January 5, 2016 @ 9 on OWN.  This season, I think I’m going to blog about the shows.  Tell me what you think and what direction do you think this show is going in this year?


The Haves And Have Nots Season 4 will begin on June 30, 2015.  For all of you that are ready and waiting, I’m posting a clip of the upcoming season. Also, check out the season 3 recap so you can be reminded of all that happened to get us to this point.  Get ready, Get set, Go…………………………


I know this is not what a lot of you are expecting but if you stay with me here, you will really enjoy this.  As I’ve said before, I am on Tyler Perry’s mailing list.  He sent out this letter yesterday and if you read it, I think you will really enjoy his perspective here.  I was really blessed by it and I’m hoping you will be as well.

Hey TJ

I was talking to a friend of mine the other day, and she was explaining to me how disappointed she was in people and the things that they do and have done to her. She went on and on about how upset and heartbroken she was, and has been, about some of her family and friends. She talked about how they hurt her and how she wished they would change and be better people. She wanted them to be different than the people they were.

Halfway through this complaint-a-thon, I asked her to take a walk with me in the backyard. Now, you have to know this particular friend of mine. She hates the heat, and it was a hot day. I said, “come on” so she reluctantly came with me.


We got outside and it was steaming hot. I could see that she was uncomfortable. Nevertheless, we kept walking around my backyard. As she was still complaining about people, I asked her what she thought of my grass. Mind you, in order to appreciate the grass you had to stand in the direct sunlight. She said “Wow, I love your grass. It’s beautiful, but it’s hot right here. Let’s cool off under that oak tree over there.”

So, as she started to walk to the tree I said, “No no, let’s stay here in the grass and cool off.”

She turned to me quickly and said, “We can’t cool off on this grass.”

Right then, I said to her, “But you just said the grass was beautiful.”

“I did” she replied. Then, I asked her, “Why won’t you stay here?” She said, because she was hot and the grass couldn’t cool her off. So, we walked over to the oak tree and sat there.

She said, “Now you see? This is what I needed.”

Then I asked her this question. “The grass was beautiful. You loved it. Why didn’t you get mad with the grass because it couldn’t provide the shade you wanted?

She was confused, so I went on to explain myself. “People in this world, whether they were created a certain way or became that way through life’s circumstances, are who they are. Stop wishing they will be someone else.”

I said, “The next time you get upset with someone because they can’t do, or can’t be what you want them to be, remember the grass. Never get mad at a blade of grass because it’s not a tree. Appreciate the grass for what it is. Let it provide to you what it can, but don’t expect more. Your life will get so much easier when you start letting people be who they are and stop expecting them to give you what they don’t have or don’t know how to give. Just like that grass couldn’t provide shade because it wasn’t made to, some people are not made to give you what you’re asking for. So, stop looking for it. You will be shocked at how much peace you find when you really get this.”

And the last thing I said to her was this. “You wouldn’t be so frustrated with people who are like the grass if you had more people who are like trees in your life.”

I could really go deep into this, but I gotta go back to work. Talk to me. What do you think?

Love y’all. Talk soon.



Tonight… it’s going down on Iyanla’s “Fix My Life”.  Iyanyla sits down with Chris Brown’s on and off again girlfriend KARREUCHE TRAN for a no holds barred interview.  You can watch excerpts from tonight’s show below.  This stuff that we see in the news is so far-fetched sometimes that there is no way you can make this stuff up.I will probably be watching college basketball when this is on but trust me… the DVR will be running.  Yep, I’ve told you before:  I have this thing for reality TV. If you have Oprah’s OWN, check your local listing to see what time it will be on in your area.



Just in case you haven’t been watching Tyler Perry’s “The Haves and Have Nots” on OWN, let me tell you… YOU have been missing it.  This season, like the rest is sure to keep you on the edge of your seats from week to week.  I’m usually a reality tv person but between “The Haves and Have Nots” and Fox’s “Empire”, I’m slowly getting back into sitcoms.  If you like good tv suspense and drama, I would encourage you to check out both of these shows.  Here’s a sneak peak of what went down last week on “The Haves and Have Nots”.


I got this email yesterday from Tyler Perry and I wanted to share it. Of course it is about one of my favorite shows on TV, “The Haves and Have Nots”. I can’t wait. If you haven’t been watching, now is a good time to catch up before the new season starts. Reruns are being shown on OWN.

Hey TJ,

Let me be the first to say, when the new episodes of The Haves And The Have Nots start on January 6th you’re going to be blown away!!!!!
If you don’t believe me WATCH THIS!!!!!!



I got this email today from Tyler Perry. Hopefully you’ll check Cicely Tyson out this weekend on OWN.

Hey TJ,

A few years ago I was flying to Africa. I invited Ms. Cicely Tyson and Mr. Poitier to fly with me. I literally sat at their feet on the plane listening to them speak about their lives. I knew I was in the presence of two very amazing souls. I knew I was listening to living history.
Well, this Sunday you get to sit and see some of what I witnessed. Ms. Cicely Tyson, truly a master teaching a Master Class. Sunday at 10/9c, only on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network.
