On if his son has seen Madea?
“For Halloween, Viola Davis’ daughter dressed up as her, if my son comes in saying he wants to be Madea, we’re going to have a problem. That’s why I did Ninja Turtles this year,” he said.
Did he save OWN?
“Honestly, there is no way I could’ve had the success at Oprah’s network if she hadn’t stopped her talk show. A s a businesswoman and CEO it was a good move for her and me as well, but ave the network, I don’t know about that.
