Earlier this week in an appearance on The Mo'Nique Show, actor/director Tyler Perry opened up about his career and current projects, as well as his very public beef with fellow director Spike Lee.

Said Perry of Lee, "He's a brilliant filmmaker. There's a lot of things that he could share with me, but for some reason we don't do that."

Perry went on to say, "Instead of taking shots and tearing each other down, why don't you give me a hand, brother? Tell me what I need to know. And maybe I can show you some things too."

One can only wonder what kinds of things Perry is hoping to learn, and teach.

Mo'Nique responded by inviting the two directors to work out their differences, once again in public, on her show.

"Would you be willing," she asked Tyler Perry, "if brother Spike Lee is willing, to come on The Mo'Nique Show and y'all have this conversation face to face?"
"Let's make it happen," Perry replied.
Mo'Nique then turned to speak directly into the camera: "Brother Spike, you have an open invitation to come and sit with brother Tyler Perry. So that way y'all can show the world at large how we can come together. Because we still are in the land of divide and conquer."

Mo'Nique went on to say that Perry and Lee are both geniuses who would form a powerful connection.

Have a look at the full interview below:






Will Spike Lee accept Mo'Nique's invitation? Time shall tell.
