Tyler Perry's: A Madea Christmas

Posted: Updated:

Madea is back. This time she's holly. We're not sure she's jolly but she's funnier than ever.

It's a Merry Madea Christmas. Tyler Perry, the man behind the woman was in SoFlo today and told Deco Drive about "Tyler Perry's: A Madea Christmas."

TYLER PERRY: "Madea goes down to a small town in deep deep deep south to set this whole town straight about the meaning of Christmas as only Madea can."

So what's the meaning of Christmas to Madea?

TYLER PERRY: "Its time to get things off of layaway - no. Christmas to Madea it's a little different. It is a time for family but its also a time for setting family straight."

In Madea's Christmas, she starts out a working in a department store during the holidays.

Crowds and kids sounds like Madea's worst nightmare.

She ends up on the road trip to a small town in Alabama to surprise her niece's daughter for Christmas. I think I'd rather have coal in my stocking then a surprise Madea visit.

TYLER PERRY: "I think she gets into trouble because she's Madea. She's not politically correct. She doesn't say it to. She doesn't worry about what is on her mind she just says it like most grandmothers did back in the day."

Madea is a laugh riot, but add some of Hollywood's funniest and hold on to your santa hats.

TYLER PERRY: "It's a lot of fun. Larry the cable guy, Kathy Najimy I and myself together in scenes -- hysterical."

We've seen Madea in a lot of situations. We wanted to know where'd she come from?

TYLER PERRY: "She is a cross between my mother and my aunt. I promise you she is the nice version of those women."

Ouch....I hope mom Perry was OK with that.

TYLER PERRY: "She'd always say she didn't say that right and I was like...i cant say that in a PG movie.'

We've got something that is very PG That Madea wants everyone to know.

TYLER PERRY: "Merry Christmas."

    When I first heard that the Crop Top was back in style, I walked straight into my bedroom, stood in front of the mirror, lifted my shirt, turned to the side and stuck my gut out as far as it would go.

    Mattie McDonald was one of the prettiest women I'd ever seen. She had light green eyes, dark brown hair and milky white skin. When she wafted by me, she smelled of lavender, honeysuckle and some other hypnotizing perfume I couldn't quite put my finger on. I spent a lot of my spare time daydreaming about her and not just because I wanted to know her. Ultimately, I wanted to be her.

    When I walked out of the Hong Kong airport, the heat of the city slapped me so hard across the face, it was like a woman catching her cheating husband with a long-suspected mistress.

    Here in So-Flo, we like to hang out half naked, especially in the summer, which is why eating healthy is so important to keep that bod in shape. I know eating healthy can be so boring. I mean, I wanna look good and feel good, but I don't wanna give up taste. I just found a healthy new joint that's both delicious and has me seriously considering becoming a vegan.

    We're not Realtors, but we love a house that has luxury to spare. So when NFL star Asante Samuel invited Deco for a little tour, how could we say no?
