"Among the millions of people around the world who dream of owning their private paradise, perhaps in the form of a tropical island, Tyler Perry has risen to the top of the ranks by being able to actually make his dream come true. Perry is on his way to becoming one of a very few and extremely fortunate people to own one of the Islands of The Bahamas.

People magazine has reported that Perry intends to make the island a present to himself for his 40th birthday.

The idea came to the highly successful director, producer and actor while visiting another private island in The Exumas in The Bahamas. He has not yet identified the island he wants to buy, but he’s actively looking. Within this chain of 700 islands, there must be one to suit his tastes. Who wouldn’t enjoy undertaking such a search?"

Coughs*, yeah all those movies and plays did that. Hmmm, let's turn our craft into islands? Yes...
