Don't Make A Black Woman Take Off Her Earrings
Madea's uninhibited commentaries on love and life.
If you can count on one thing from "Madea" Mabel Simmons, star of the smash hits Diary of a Mad Black Woman and Madea's Family Reunion, it's that she's got something to say. Now the beloved, sharp-tongued, pistol-packing grandmother has her own book—part memoir, many parts hard-won, hilarious, straight-up in-your-face words of wisdom.
"Every time I'm out in front of people, they ask me for advice. 'Madea, what should I do about this? Madea, what should I do about that?' I tell people I've got problems of my own, but for some reason, they keep asking and they seem to like to listen to the advice that I've got to give."
About the Author
