Tyler Perry’s new highly anticipated film, “Temptation: Confessions of A Marriage Counselor” released in theaters today. The film stars Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Lance Gross, Kim Kardashian, Vanessa Williams, Brandy and more. Celebs and tons of fans came out to support. Check out the pics from the March 16th Atlanta premiere.
“Temptation” is a compelling love story that dives straight into the heart of obsessive passion. “It’s about a woman who starts to get restless in her relationship and her choice to be with another man has a huge effect on the rest of her life,” explains screenwriter/producer/director Tyler Perry. “She goes on a journey – in her career and in her marriage – and she ends up in a very different place than she expected.”
“This is definitely one of the most provocative movies – sexually and otherwise – that I’ve made,” says the director. “There are a lot of people who struggle in their relationships. They make bad choices about their marriages. They get divorced. And so many of them don’t step out of their situation and really think about the consequences of what they’re doing. This movie asks, ‘Are you sure you want to do this?’ It sends up a flag.”
After the screening, Tyler invited select media and celebs for a cocktail party at his house…which is bigger than life! He personally shook everyone’s hand as we entered his home as his official welcome. Attendees were DeVon Franklin, Meagan Good, Kim Kardashian, Kanye, Atlanta Housewives, KeKe Palmer, Lil Mama, T.I., Tiny, Congressman John Lewis, Pastor Marvin Winans…even John Snyner from the Dukes of Hazzard!
On the menu was shrimp, sushi, salad, collard greens, mac and cheese, cornbread, a fruit table, a dessert bar with top notch servers. It took a minute for me to totally take in the view from his balcony which overlooks his ornate pool, tennis court, and courtyard with an amazing view of Atlanta’s sky. You know you’ve made it when you have a men and women’s public restroom in your home! If you ever get a chance to go, it’s a home you’ll never forget.
