When The Color Purple’s Sofia Met Madea


Jesus in a manger! I always knew if Tyler Perry  had the opportunity to get his hands on The Color Purple, he would somehow have that gun-toting Granny Madea in there. Well, the multi-hyphenated phenom got his recently chance, in a manner of speaking. 

To promote Perry’s shows, Love Thy Neighbor and The Haves and Have Nots coming to OWN, Oprah Winfrey slipped back into her famous Sofia role from The Color Purple, and Perry transformed himself back into his breakout character. Winfrey revealed the picture on Twitter and stated:

We had a real LOL good time with this. #SophiaMeetsMadea tomorrow.
