Come on. Let's go.

Wait a minute!

You can't just return them.

They said I wasn't a good fit.

There'll be another family, Michelle.


Oh, come on! Wait a minute!

What's the matter with me?

Not a thing, Michelle.

God's children are all perfect.

In their own way.


F*ck you!

Never lose hope, Michelle.

There's a family out there for everyone.

Come on, Agnes. Families are for suckers.

Don't worry about me. I don't need anybody.

I'm going straight to the top.

Michelle. Michelle?

AUDIENCE CHANTING: Michelle! Michelle!

- Michelle!


She's the CEO

of three Fortune 500 companies

and the best-selling financial author

of Money Talks, Bullshit Walks.

The one, the only, Michelle Darnell!


Who wants to make some money?


I can't hear you, Chicago!

Get those hands up!

Come on! There we go!

(RAPPING) MD going in on the verse

'Cause I never been defeated

And I won't stop now

Keep your hands up, put 'em in the sky

For the homies didn't make it

and my folks locked down

I never went nowhere

They're saying 'Chelle's back

Blame it on the conjure

They call it M.D.-ac

Can't never count me out

Y'all better count me in

Got twenty bank accounts

Accountants count me in

Make millions every year

The Chi's champion

'Cause all I do is...

Give it up for T-Pain!

All I do is win, win, win no matter what

Got money on my mind

I can never get enough

And every time I step up in the building

Everybody hands go up

And they stay there

And they say yeah

And they stay there

Up down, up down, up down

'Cause all I do is win, win, win

And if you goin' in put your hands in the air

Make them stay there


Thank you, Chicago!

Thank you. All right.

I love you!

Thank you. I love you, too.

My name is Michelle Darnell

and I am the 47th

wealthiest woman in America.

How wealthy am I?

I had Destiny's Child reunite

only to have them come over

to my personal living room

so I could watch them break apart again.


How did I get to my success level?

What's my secret?

I worked myself silly.

Okay, number one.

You work your ass off to get what you want.

Number two.

You do not let other people drag you down.

'Cause they will.

They are an anchor in your life

that you do not want.

Cut 'em loose and sail off.

If you work this program...

You. Will. Get. Rich.

And I'm not talking about chump change.

And I'm not talking about some

loose dollar bills at the bottom of your purse.

I'm talking about real fucking money!

Life-changing money!


Real fucking money! Real fucking money!

That's how you do it.

Now let's go make some money!

Thank you, Tito. What a night!

That's right, MD.



I'm amazed that the United Center

is even still standing

because I crushed it tonight.

You crushed it like velvet.

Like velvet!

Send T-Pain some "thank you" flowers.

- Okay?

- Okay.

Look into getting more fire power to that bird.

Absolutely. More power.

No. The fire marshal almost shut us down

based on the pyrotechnics we used tonight.

I don't think that's an option.

Let's hire a new fire marshal.

I don't think you can

hire a fire marshal.

I think it's a city-appointed position,

but I'll look into it.

All she does is win, Claire. Toot-toot!

I got this, Tito.

Okay? You can sit this one out.


Oh, teeth whitening. Sorry. Sorry, yes.

- My God.

- Sorry.
