Lauren London Set To Join The Cast of BET’s ‘The Game’

Following the news that Tia Mowry & Pooch Hall have unexpectedly departed from the once beloved series, “The Game”, it looks as though the cast is set to acquire a new addition. 

According to TVLine.comLauren London is joining the BET comedy’s sixth season as a series regular. 

London, whose credits also include Single Ladies, Madea’s Big Happy Family & being Lil Wayne’s baby’s mama – will play Kiera, a former child star who is currently appearing in a Cosby Show-esque sitcom. Producers are also on the lookout for an actor to play an all-star running back. 

Back for the new season are Wendy Raquel Robinson (Tasha), Coby Bell (Jason), Hosea Chanchez (Malik), Brandy (Chardonnay) & Barry A. Floyd (Tee Tee).

Yay or Nay? – BET Renews “The Game” For Sixth Season

Have you been tuning in to “The Game” on Tuesday nights? If you have, I’m sure you’d be happy to know that the show is returning for a sixth season. reportedly heard BET has quietly renewed the show for a sixth season, right along with “Let’s Stay Together,” which is produced by Queen Latifah.

 The pickups, though not quite official yet, are said to be for 22 episodes, backed by strong season openings. “The Game’s” current season debuted with 5.5 million viewers, while season two  of “Let’s Stay Together” premiered with 3.5 million. The only scripted show hanging in the balance is “Reed Between the Lines.” BET is said to be debating renewal of the new series which averaged 2.9 million viewers and lagged behind the 3.3 million viewers who watched the network’s 2011 Hip Hop Awards.

While I’m glad that African-American sitcoms are being renewed, I can’t help but to be disappointed with the poor quality of “The Game”  in the last two years. As a fan of the series from the very beginning, I must admit that the show’s storyline and acting have become laughable (not in a good way); like bad reality television. I hope that the producers improve the show overall for the forthcoming season.

Nicki Minaj’s ‘Stupid Hoe’ Banned From BET

Despite racking up over 20 million views for her latest solo music video, Nicki Minaj’s “Stupid Hoe” may just be too hot for television.

According to TMZ, BET has reportedly decided not to air the Hype Williams-directed visuals.

Sources at BET have reported that the ban was put in place because the video’s just too explicit for TV.

The song lyrics alone are bad enough — repeating the phrase “stupid hoe” dozens of times — but the video itself is raunchy as well, showing several nearly naked female figures.

I honestly don’t know what Nicki was thinking releasing this song as single, but I’m pretty sure she didn’t anticipate BET showing it either way, as “106 & Park”, a tween friendly show, is currently their only outlet for music videos. What do you think?
