Master P. wrote an open letter to Wendy Williams in response to comments Wendy made about his upcoming reality show, The Miller Dynasty.

Wendy said that with all of the recent family issues emanating from the Miller camp, Master P. shouldn’t expose his family to the harsh reality world. 

In his letter, Master P. said that he thought Wendy was his friend and while he understands her role, he feels like she should have called him to find the truth.

“First of all, I thought Wendy Williams was my friend. I understand that her job is to entertain gossip but how could she keep picking up TMZ gossip as if it was real news when she should have contacted me directly if she was really concerned about my family, or me like she claims. If anyone understands being in the media and having to deal with celebrity personal family gossip and betrayal, she should know because of her own situation. If she wants to know the truth, as my friend, she should call me directly to get the facts and the truth rather than joining the media circus and talking trash. It’s funny how all of my philanthropy efforts for the past 20 years have never received this type of attention, not that I’m looking for any recognition, but it amazes me how Hollywood glorifies negativity. “

He then went on to defend his show, under the working title The Miller Dynasty, saying the show won’t be just another Black reality show full of ‘rathet negativity’ and vows to change the reality TV perception the way he changed the music industry.

“Well I guess I’m going to change the reality tv world the way that I’ve changed the music industry because the show that I’m doing is not ratchet negativity, it’s about fatherhood, standing up for something that you believe in and family business in the music industry from a positive perspective while still entertainment for tv.”

 “After 24 years of keeping our family personal life private, we are ready to share with the world our life experiences, the trials, tribulations and accomplishments that come with being a successful family of musicians and entertainers. As a music mogul and being one of the most successful music entrepreneurs in the business, I was forced to deal with the harsh reality of going through a divorce, while being a father to my kids even as a single parent. It’s challenging as a public figure because of the gossip, false accusations and negative media. Due to the need of media outlets to sell headlines and news stories, celebrities are labeled guilty until proven innocent. I feel like our private lives have been invaded and with all of this technology, social media and TMZ, our lives are more open to scrutiny. Our reality show will expose the truth.”

In closing, he reminds us that his family is not perfect, by far (we said that in our Porsha Williams voice, btw).

“The Miller Dynasty is founded on integrity and family values. We are not perfect by any means; we go through similar struggles like any family. There are constant battles that we fight especially with having money and fame but with our faith and belief in God we are able to overcome any obstacle. Our family has come a long way from poverty in the ghetto and to be able to share our story from rags to riches, the good, the bad, and the ugly that come with success. Our goal and our purpose is for this reality show to be educational and entertainment for all families.”
