With BET’s ‘The Game‘ entering it’s sixth season, fans and critics can’t wait to see what’s next from the show. Recently, there have been some pretty BIG changes, like the removal of characters ‘Derwin’ (played by Pooch Hall) and ‘Melanie’ (played by Tia Mowry-Hardrict). In an interview with ABC News radio, actress Wendy Raquel Robinson chatted about their departure and even commented on the recent negative twitter comments made by Pooch. Peep a few excerpts below.

If Game Producers Told Cast About Tia Mowry-Hardrict/Pooch Hall’s Departures:

Really they didn’t tell us anything because at the end of the day it’s not our business. …[They did share] it was going to be hard to continue on with the storyline, which does make a lot of sense. If [Derwin Davis] gets traded and [Melanie Davis is] off at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore — we’re set in San Diego — so it would’ve been a little convoluted.

Her Reaction to Pooch Hall’s Negative Tweets About The Game:

It’s kind of like going through a bad divorce and there’s the love of your life getting married again. How do you act? I can’t say what Pooch said on Twitter, or re-tweeted is appropriate, but it’s…an emotional reaction. It’s a knee jerk reaction. He’ll get over it and that wound will heal.

Her Reaction to Tia Mowry-Hardrict Leaving The Show:

Personally that’s my little sister so it was devastating. But now in retrospect so many other opportunities have come to her: movies, her own show and then she got a reality show. So…it’s still hard, but it’s a blessing in a disguise for her as well.

On New Season of The Game:

It’s fresh. It’s new. It’s still the same drama/comedy…but I do like the addition,” Robinson said referring to new cast members: Lauren London and Jay Ellis. “I think it’s going to help. You know every now and then we need to get re-energized and resuscitated.
