Hollywood Babble On & On #197: It's A Settlement, But Is It Settled?

The Writers Guild has a settlement with independent mogul Tyler Perry over the writers fired from his House of Payne show. Apparently it took intervention from the NAACP to help finalize the deal.

The fact that it took the involvement of a group as large and as prominent as the NAACP to help settle what should have been a standard business procedure doesn't bode well for the future of Perry's business, as I explained in my previous post on the matter.

Why don't you give me your opinion.


  1. Don't you think that the involvement of a third party furthers the 'dry rot' of any business?
    naacp wouldn't be in this without compensation and how deep their claws have dug into Perry's company will bear rancid fruit in the coming future soon.
    His output will be strong for now, but the bleeding out of creativity & dues to the leeches of naacp with extra contraventions will be its death.

  2. I think it was a political move on Perry's part to get them involved, and politics are bad for business.

    I don't know much about the current management of the NAACP. But I do believe that getting any group involved as a third party is a mistake.

    All organizations are run by people, all people have their own agendas, and all agendas can't resist being corrupted by the lure of showbiz, with its fame and big money. It doesn't bode well for either Perry or the NAACP.
