Why does Cora call her dad Mr. Brown?


Call him dad like a normal person.

Do you know how old Cora was when she was told Brown was her father? I know (unless I'm remembering wrong) that she was an adult when she found out that he really wasn't.

It's probably a good thing being that she's married to "Mr. Brown" in real life. It would be awkward to be calling your husband "daddy". LOL.

Ha!! I didn't even know they were married. I guess I just never paid attention!! What I don't get is why her last name isn't Brown. I know the paternity was questionable but she called him Mr. Brown before Big Family and after. I just find it awkward I guess.

the reason her last name is Simmons and not Brown, is because her mother, Mabel "Madea" Simmons never married Mr. Brown. Cora was the result of a one night stand Madea had with Mr. Brown

I find it nice that viewers nvr questioned the relationship since it was only revealed about him being her dad via one night stand on Perrys play 'Class Reunion'.
