Single Mom's Club

Posted: Updated:

Tyler Perry is best at writing female characters. In his new movie, Tyler gathers different women that have one thing in common they're all single moms.

In Tyler Perry's "Single Mom's Club," women from all walks of life start a single mom support group.

Nia Long plays the movie's main character, and Tyler's favorite.

Tyler - "She was kind of the nucleus for everything, everything kind of revolved around her.

Nia - "Thank you that's just cuz I'm sitting here."

As for Nia, she loves the witty and sarcastic chick that Cocoa Brown plays.

Cocoa - "A single mom to five kids, two of which are incarcerated so typical... its in the script."

Nia - "Watching the film I really could identify with Coco's character."

Tyler - "Even when you read it you did."

Nia - "Yes and I just , I'm from Brooklyn. I grew up in south central LA, I know that world, my mother was a single mom and we would take the bus.."

Nia - "I really relate to that experience of just in that split second missing the bus and it just feels like the world is gonna fall apart, and the dating and the comedy of it all."

Sounds like Nia was a good kid (With good running shoes.)

Nia - "I was a good kid cuz I had to be. I had to grow up faster than I wanted to or needed to."

So from all of us thanks mom for making us better people.

Tyler - "I was a great kid, if not my mom would've broken my neck so I was a great kid."

For teaching us how to multi-task.

Amy - "I was a tomboy. I was tomboy, but I was a ballerina too, which kinda doesn't make sense. I was a ballerina but then I had a skateboard and did little league baseball."

And for putting up with our hobbies. Mine was to be a reporter AKA a professional talker those hobbies, by the way, sometimes turn into real jobs.

Wendy - "I was a theatrical kid who made people come and watch my homemade show. So I was annoying."

    I'll never forget the endless summers I spent on the coast of North Carolina. My shoulders were always kissed by the sun, my hair was continually salty from the ocean and my one-piece, bright blue bathing suit was my constant companion.

    I don't remember dying, but I did. Twice. It was a chilly Fall morning in October at a dentist's office in Santa Fe. My mom had escorted me to what was supposed to be a regular wisdom teeth extraction appointment.
