: MediaTakeOut.com just received some BREAKING News. According to a ROCK SOLID SNITCH actress Tia Mowry and Pooch Hall have both been FIRED from BETs ht series THE GAME
What happened? Well according to MediaTakeOut.com's ROCK SOLID SNITCH 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."
So,we're told, 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.
WHAT THE FREEEEEEAAAK!!! The show was getting a little STALE . . . but you can't fire THOSE TWO.
We may have to start a PETITION on this . . .
Members of the press are Required to credit MediaTakeOut.com with this EXCLUSIVE report!!
Getting paid like reality stars? Nene Leakes makes 1M per season, Mike Sorrentino gets 100K per episode, even Teen Moms make almost 70K per season so that's not really that bad. They should've gotten a pay cut as bad as this season ended up being. They were cancelled before for a reason.
Now I get it. Lauren London's people threaten to sue ya'll b/c all of a sudden she's
gone from top story for THIS B.S. and she's NOWHERE to be found on the blog.
LMAO at this cowardly blog. Mean what you say and say what you mean and STICK
to it MTO!
Let me find BET is getting too big for their bridges...well everybody on the show is abt to be on the unemployment line cuz it's abt to be a reynolds wit out them...and this hasn't been their best season either. Smdh

..........CHILD FRESH FACE KIDS...............
..............ARE A DIME A DOZEN.................
........THEY CAN EASILY BE REPLACED........
.....LIKE THIS PITCHER OF MARTINIS.......
Dang...now I'm going to have to find something else to watch.... I love all the cast members, I even miss Kelly....I like Brandy's new character.... I miss Rick Fox.... Where's Irv (the little white dude/agent)...? Tia and Pooch if your reading this... I understand, but we will miss you.... BET get it together.... We need this show....
BLACK PEOPLE CAN NEVER KEEP IT TOGETHER.
THE GAME IS THE ONLY REASON O EVER TUNE INTO BET.
BET HAS BEEN DOING THIS SHYT FOREVER...SHORT CHANGING IT'S BIGGEST STARS AND LOSING THEIR BEST SHOWS.
ALL THE WHITE PEOPLE ON "FRIENDS" GOT PAID BY THEIR WHITE NETWORK. BUT LEAVE IT UP TO BET TO SHORT CHANGE IT'S BLACKS...I THOUGHT THAT UNDERHANDED SHYT STOPPED WHEN MTV TOOK OVER BET.
ALL THE SPONSORS AND ADVERTISERS DON'T WANT TO COUGH UP MORE MONEY FOR BLACK ACTORS BUT WILL COUGH UP MILLIONAIRE FOR ADVERTISING THAT GOES TOWARD PAYING WHITE ACTORS.
VERY FEW BLACK ACTORS EVER GET THE CREDIT OR PAY THEY DESERVE.
THE ONLY THING I ACTUALLY LIKE ABOUT HE NEW SHOW IS THAT KELLY IS GONE AND BRANDY IS ON THERE, ALSO THE WHOLE BABY MOMMA DRAMA WILL BE NO MORE. IDK WHAT HAPPENED TO THE ORIGINAL WRITERS FOR THE GAME, BECAUSE THE NEW WRITERS SUCK. I CAN'T SEE THIS SHOW BEING A SUCCESS IF TIA AND POOCH ARE FIRED! THEN MTO IS STATING THAT ANOTHER PERSON MAY LEAVE AS WELL. IF THIS IS ALL TRUE, THEN THEY MIGHT AS WELL CANCEL THE SHOW!
BET should no longer stand for black entertainment, they haven't entertained me since late night videos. The Game first season was about sexy rich athletes and their relationships with sexy black women, and a wannabe down white chick. White exec's felt threatened by the ratings and tried to ax them, didn't work so they drop the white girl, sexy gueststars,and luxurious lifestyle, and bring in more whites and "ghetto" Brandy to focus on light/dark skinned issues. This season was designed to fail. White people want us overdosing on Tyler Perry coonery.
First and foremost, " The Game" is wack as hell since everybody took that long ass break waiting on Med School to have that baby. Tasha Mack is the only character that hasnt changed....everybody elses role is WACK and lame. I went from loving the show to not even watching. Theres no chemistry on the set and the show is boring. They dont deserve a higher salary because their performance is dead. Its a recession dammit and people are out of work...yet these people want more money???? BET reinstated your employment boo boos, otherwise you'd be sitting at home watching your own re-runs. Im so over these people in hollywood. Dont blame BET because the producers and cast lack of talent. And news flash....VH1 reality shows have higher ratings Im sure because this show has no drama and lacks interest.
So many picky people, failing to realize there could have been nothing at all. But that's a failed argument too, considering how unhappy half of you seem to be. Everyone's stuck on how wonderful it was back on the other channel before BET. I tried to give BET a strong chance, seeing as I don't watch that channel period. I watched only because of The Game and hoped it would have staying power, seeing how badly the fans wanted it. Now it's all up in flames again because 2 main characters are being fired. That's sad and it's a death sentence.
I must be missing something, though. About the acting and how boring the show is. Sure it's changed, but I feel like it's matured. Maybe that's why it's so boring? All the childish drama is gone. Makes sense. Anyway, it was a good run. So let's see how it plays out until the end...again.
Can't say I expected anything better from BET anyway. With the exception of The Game, and the few times Prince has been on an awards show, I stopped watching this channel back when I was still on the creamy crack in high school and like...a few college experiences. I can recall when BET was THE stuff, and I wasn't nada but 6 and 7 years old grooving to Anita Baker.
.goin to Oprah's network would drop their ratings. Everyone doesn't have digital cable. Instead of going off of someone's word they should have got in it in writing. Debra, tbe B.E.T ceo, needs to stop being so cheap. It takes money to make money
Every since BET picked up the show it has been garbage anyway. Without Tia and Pooch they might as well cancel it. They were the only halfway interesting characters. I thought Pooch was leaving to do another show anyway?
Follow???? <3 @JennEticz
@hiphopilluminatiisback; I was thinking the SAME thing about how they are still FORTUNATE in some aspects. I often wonder why they need all that extravagance too. ($40,000) buys a home AND you're in a lower tax bracket. We want for nothing because we live simply. You want to live or do you want fame? Why don't they (Black actors/athletes) ever get together and do what Oprah is trying to do. If Raven ammassed so much from her show why didn't Tia Tamera? Don't see Raven lookin for work or higher wages. It is what it is.
Whaaaaat! BET wants them to be slaves.. I heard BET aint even owned by black people..
We need to stop letting the white man take our stuff; don't let them wave money in your face and buy you...
Congrats to Pooh and Tia for a smart decision morally..
I DONT agree AT ALL WITH OBAMAS NEW POLICY ON GAY MARRIAGE. DO YOU?
GO RIGHT NOW TO OBAMA.SQUIZZ.ORG AND LET IT BE KNOWN
First the show is garbage now but peacfuzz I can't agree about they shouldn't complain about the dough cuz reality stars getting paid out the ass to fight drink and fukk on tv aka jersey shore housewives and basketball chickenheads so why can't they get tey money show is garbage but the ratings are high kim k show isgarbage and a lot of dumb black ppl still watching this ho she is stacked money
@blackbabymamaepidemic lol i pay extra on my cable bill for bet to bring back the old bet. Citas world bet.ckm countdown the center rap city hey monie college hill comic view coming to the stage access granted free and aj left over bet not wanting to pay them more money
I can tell some of u niggers never had much, expect for a dirty project apartment where violence runs amuck. The same shit happened with the Simpsons, the voice actors asked for more deals and money, eventually they got it after a long negotiation, because they MAKE the show, without them the Simpsons would be fucked. The point is, you have to pay people what they're worth especially if they make the show and bring in the ratings, if people didn't ask for more money, they would still be flipping burgers like you dumb motherfuckers.
Tia is the star and she needs to make more than everyone else. she has other things going on she will b fine but the others ... unemployment line(Make Money From Ur Phone!

BET has not been owned by black people in quite a while now. I don't even watch it anymore except for award shows.
@ markmywords: PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS NOT MADE A NEW POLICY ON GAY MARRIAGE. It's idiots like you that hope if you keep telling that lie, people will be dumb enough to believe it. The gay policy is state-to-state. THE STATE MAKES THEIR OWN GAY MARRIAGE POLICY and it's only about six states that has this policy. STOP LYING!
Their story line was getting stupid...well the whole show was getting stupid. Why would they ask Tasha who drinks, smokes and old as shyt to carry their baby. The Pookie storyline is BORING! Malik NOT partying anymore is BORING! Jason new nice side is BORING! The whole show is a hot mess. New people would be an improvement!
BET. ...can't keep any good shows on bcuz they don't want to pay ppl......comic view, live from la, college hill, Baldwin hills, ole drama, the list goes on & on we all need to stop watching I already have just a disgrace the want to pay ppl with food stamps when all the other networks are paying on a totally different pay scale. Screw bet...
I knew something was up.. You could tell in the last episode. Derwin is going to follow Melanie to where ever she is and that's going to be the end of them on the show.
Oh well a show can't go on forever and it was whack this season anyway.
I haven't seen the show in a minute,but I do know that these characters will be missed and I do wonder why they would let her know on such short notice that her acting services would be no longer needed,but then again when you're up next on the corporate chopping block Everybody else knows,but you... The show won't last!
Damn. They basically make the show what it is. I'm a true Game fan and all, but if they get rid of those two, then I don't know if I would still watch. And if other castmembers leave as well, then they might as well just cancel the whole damn show! This is not surprising though...knowing BET. Maybe another network should pick them up...
This show had been a big disappointment every since it's return smh I loved the fact trust bet gave it another shot because it was one of my favorite show the last episode was sooo good had you wanting more of the show and wad sad to see them go people fought do hard to get this show back on the air and they came back with this crap totally lost the essence of the characters that we fell in love with bet what the hell were you thinking ?? Should have stuck with the same formula that made millions of people fall in love with this show in the first place myself and I'm sure thousands of others give yhis show two thumbs down has to b the biggest let down in tv history!!!!!! So when Melanie and Derwin leave the show I hope the rest if the cast follow
