In a recent interview with Essence.com Tyler Perry says Diana Ross is his childhood idol. It is no secret that Perry would love to work with the Motown legend. In February we reported that Perry has big plans for her. To most, an incredible opportunity, not for Ross who hasn’t returned Perry’s calls. “She’s been ignoring me for years,” says Perry. “She’s the only person that I have dreamed of working with that will not return my phone calls.”
Marla Gibbs and John Amos, however, are two of Perry’s idols whom he had the pleasure of working into his latest movie, Madea’s Witness Protection. “To be around Florence from The Jeffersons and James [Amos] from Good Times… to stand in the presence of people that I’ve admired is amazing.”
So why do you think Ms. Ross isn’t responding Tyler Perry’s phone calls?
