Say goodbye to Melanie and Derwin from BET’s The Game.
Tia Mowry confirmed on her Twitter page last night that she would not be retuning for the next season of The Game. Pooch Hall will also not be back.
Tia’s sister Tamara’s also showed support of her sister. It seems that the role will definitely be re-casted.
So what happened? Well according to gossip site MTO:
Tia and Pooch had been PROMISED a higher wage when they FIRST signed on to the BET hit series.
The insider explained, “Everyone took a pay cut when [BET] picked up the show … they were promised that if the show was a success, the ENTIRE CAST would be well paid.”
Well that’s NOT what happened. The insider added, “They were not being paid what they deserved. The Game was BET’s highest rated series EVER, and they were being paid like reality stars.”
And after a LONG negotiation POOCH and Tia made a FINAL offer – and BET was like . .. DUECES, and told that if they would NOT come down in salary – THEY’RE FIRED. We’re told that OTHER castmembers may be leaving also.
Of course, MSDTV will keep you posted. Stay Tuned.
