According to HipHollywood’s source, Tia Mowry and Pooch Hall are NOT returning to BET’s popular show, The Game. Tia, who plays the character Melanie will stay busy with her Style Network reality show, while Pooch, who plays Derwin, has some other projects in the works. Earlier this month, Pooch tweeted:
Except me and BET got love for each other… They are wrkin it out. I’m on a new showtime show “Ray Donovan” showtime said I can still do The Game…
No word on why the two may have decided to leave for the upcoming season, or if they’ll return, or if this is all just a false alarm.
Updated: After the news hit that Tia would not be returning to the show, she confirmed the news on twitter:
“Just wanted to let all my fans know that I will not be returning to The Game for season 6. It was an incredible run and I had lots of fun. along the way. I am looking forward to my upcoming projects…the release of my book #OhBaby [today!], , season 2 of @TiaTameraShow on @mystyle premiering in June, and my @ABCFamily movie coming out in December…more to come!” love u so much
