ON A LITTLE DIRT ROAD IN A LITTLE COUNTRY TOWN—“All my life I had to fight….” was a line Oprah Winfrey made famous as Miss Sofia on “The Color Purple.” It was later echoed by “Madea” in one of the Tyler Perry movies when the rambunctious woman knocked around a kid. Once again, we get to hear our favorite movie line spoken in the opening of the funny promotional video made by BFFs Oprah and Tyler ahead of their upcoming OWN venture.
“Madea Meets Sofia” starts out with Winfrey, in full throwback character dress, stomping down a dirt road and Madea asking for directions to the OWN studios.
What follows is a hilariously funny dialogue between the two women that gives us a little “heads up” on what we can expect from the network.
My favorite line is when Winfrey/ Sofia says she had to “fight them haters.” Go girl!
