Ok, with my heart and soul I will help and protect this child, just as I tried to do for Whitney. So with that said, one thing I knew that Krissi would need after Whitney's death was a safe place to grieve. So when she told me she wanted to act I said I would help. If she had said she wanted to be a doctor I would have tried to help her get into the best schools. But because she said acting, that was easy for me. I thought, "this is great". This way I could have her on the show, while at the same time be there for her and help her walk through this grief. So I wrote her into For Better Or Worse, which airs tonight on TBS. Now I wrote a very small part because I wasn't sure if she could act. She had never done it before. So needless to say I was a little cautious, but BOY WAS I WRONG! Krissi was so good in that small part that I went back and wrote major scenes for her and even one entire show around her character. I'm so proud of this kid. You have no idea. SO PROUD OF HER! I know Whitney is smiling down on her baby girl.

Here's what I'd like you to help me with if you don't mind. It is one of my heart's desires to see Krissi happy and joyous and moving through the pain of this tragedy. I know that the news media has moved on but the pain is still very real to her. What I also know is that every little bit of sunshine can help her move through. Trust me, I know. You helped me move through the grief of my mother's death. So if you will, after you watch Krissi's performance on For Better Or Worse tonight on TBS, please post a comment on my message board letting her know what you thought.

She's been through hell and to see her smile melts my heart. So I know if she reads your comments she will be even more inspired. And you better believe she'll be watching and reading...lol. You know how these teenagers are with the internet.

Lastly, if you will whisper a prayer for her and the Houston family I know that they would appreciate it. Most of you have no idea what it's like to lose a mother, especially at 19. I'm 42 and it still brings me to my knees at times.  

Be well, God bless and I'll be reading tonight.

Love ya,

    I enjoyed last week's episode with Bobbi Kristina. She did an excellent job. She was very believable, funny and seems to have a natural talent for acting. She had be crackin up the way she stocked the shelves. Good job Bobbi Kristina. Looking forward to seeing more of you on the show.

    I too would like to put my two cents in about Bobbi Kristina she did an AWESOME Job!!!! She kept me guessing about what her next comment would be. She is a natural and I would love to see her in one of your upcoming movies (hint...hint). I am so glad that you have taken her under you wing; I can't imagine what she's going through. We will be looking forward to more from Ms. Bobbi!!! Thanks for making a young lady and the rest of us smile!!! God Bless you as you continue your ministry of laughter, lifting spirits and making dreams come true!

    Hi Tyler, I have heard you tell your story about how you got started but I'm not sure if you ever answered this question; Do you think if you would have entered contest, wrote query letters on all those great movies you have had such great success with, you would be where you are today? I ask because even with all your success and other black actors and directors, it still seems almost impossible for a black writer, to get in Hollywood. I know keep writing, have faith, and be as ready as I can be.. So if that's what your thinking well I'll see you soon on the red carpet . :)

    I was out of town and the show did not air where I was, but I DVR the show at home and was able to see it this morning. I give Bobbi two thumbs up for her part and can't wait to see more of her... God's light and her mother's prayer's are with her and she can do anything that she set her mind to do. So, I wish her nothing but luck. My prayers are also with her and her family as they continue to go through... Stay strong Bobbi and May God's blessings continue to be with you and Tyler. Tyler, you are truely a blessing to so many. May God's peace continue to be with you...Much LOVE TO YOU BOTH!!! Karen
