Ed Hartwell sold his home for a major loss amid his divorce to Keshia Knight Pulliam, a story that just keeps going on and on.

Some folks criticized Tyler Perry for casting his latest TV show "Too Close to Home"with mostly non-black actors, the first time he has ever done so with a TV series.

"Stop asking me that damn question. People are people!” he said on Tom Joyner's morning show heard on Kiss 104.1.

The drama, the first one on TLC, debuted August 22.
