Lisa Whelchel in "A Madea Christmas"

The comeback is on! Lisa has a role in Tyler Perry's "A Madea Christmas" and has been filming this week in Atlanta.

No doubt, she has Kim Fields -- who is tight with Perry & worked on a few of his projects -- to thank for this.

Good for her - always liked her.

I wish Kim Fields would do more work - but she's probably set for life.

Tootie had nothing to do with it. She appeared on "Survivor" and was brought back into the limelight.

I hope this is a good career move. After carefully orchestrating a "comeback" I don't want her now to become a punchline or butt of a joke.

She's also been co-hosting "The Jeff Probst Show" all this week. She's been good during the pre-guest segments but he's been a dick. (Today, he interrupted her while she was telling a self-depreciating story about how she embarrassed herself at a party the night before and asked her, "Do you think this story is compelling? In your mind, do you think the audience is interested?". It gets worse during the guest interviews, where he's apparently been given all the questions and she gets to sit there like a silent spectator. It should be her show; she comes across as much more likeable than he does and much, much less self-involved.

R7, I'd like to see that...I hate Probst so much. In my area, they moved his show to 3:00 am and I don't want to waste DVR space on him. I wonder if he feels threatened by her...? Why is he such a dick?

Gosh, maybe your right, R5. Even though.....a few months ago, there was an Enquirer article which said that Lisa had been in touch with Kim Fields to help her get back into acting. Even though......Kim is close friends with Tyler Perry, having worked on several of his projects, both as an actor and director. You're right, it's just HUGE COINCIDENCE that Lisa's first acting role, post-Survivor, is in a Tyler Perry movie......

Girls! Girls! Your pussies are both in need of a good Summer's Eve! Now sit there and THINK. And when you want to talk to one another--COMMUNICATE.

She's infinitely more interesting than Jeff "wanna know what you're playing for" Probst

I love her. I'm glad. Though I would like to see her sink her teeth into a dramatic role. Something totally out of character. Playing and adult, unsympathetic bitch. A murderer or something. Surely Lifetime could find her something. I bet you she'd surprise everyone.

Maybe she can get Ryan Murphy to cast her in AHS Season 3.

Those roles should have come right after TFOL r14. She's making a comeback right now, so all in the near future, all her roles should be of a character fully adult, and likable and vulnerable.

Once she is back, then the drama.
