*Tyler Perry had no shame.
The “The Single Moms Club” director visited “Chelsea Lately” on Thursday and told host Chelsea Handler he wanted her “to invite all the white people to come see the movie.”
“That’s all I’m saying,” he quipped. “That’s why I’m here.”
Handler obliged, speaking directly to the camera, saying, “OK, homies—my kinda homies—we all need to go out and support his movie. We’re appealing to white people! It’s called ‘The Single Moms Club.’”
“And there are white people in the movie,” Perry interjected with a laugh.
Handler told Perry she would be seeing the film—which features Amy Smart, Ryan Eggold, Terry Crews, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Nia Long, Eddie Cibrian, Cocoa Brown, William Levy and Zulay Henao—in theaters. She then readdressed her audience, saying, “It’s called ‘The Single Moms Club,’ and that’s what I would be if I had a baby.”
She and Perry went on to other subjects…joking about feeling infantilized by the help from their assistants—even when it comes to basic everyday stuff. “I went to the gas station for the first time the other day,” Handler said, “and I gave [the gas attendant] $10. The guy was like, ‘What do you want with the $10? Because your car’s electric!”
Perry knew the feeling, joking that when he took a solo trip to the grocery store, he saw a self checkout for the very first time.
