So what REALLY happened with Miss Mykie, one of BET’s newest hosts on 106 & Park? Viewers and fans have been asking that question for the last few months. Earlier this year, the Howard University graduate, along with Bow Wow and radio personalities Paigion and Shorty Da Prince—became hosts of the urban music’s only video countdown show. But last month, the network confirmed that Bow Wow would be staying on, along with Angela Simmons.

In an interview with EBONY, the 28-year-old speaks on her sudden BET departure:

It’s all love with BET and it will always be. I support BET and they support me 100 percent with my future endeavors. We communicated about what was going on. It’s the TV and entertainment world and you have to prepare yourself for transitions that may come. Change is inevitable. I have grown to understand that it’s just a part of life. It allows you to learn more about yourself. It can be scary or it can be exciting, and whether you like the situation or not you have to keep it moving and make the best of it.

So what’s new for the Denver native? Two weeks ago she launched, The Tea, a fully-produced entertainment talk show exclusive to Instagram. With a built-in set and glam squad, the tightly packed edited mini clips hits Instagram every weekday at 1 p.m. eastern time and noon central time. Topics include everything from twerkin’ to the George Zimmer verdict. Of the concept, she explained:

I fell in love. I was like ‘OMG this is so innovative and creative’. I was sold after I saw how professional it was. Everyone already has their own show on YouTube, blogs and websites, but nobody has done it on Instagram.

What’s more? She shares that she’s also pursuing her music and has recently signed with a talent agency in LA to purse acting. Sweet! We’re sure she’ll bounce back. Good luck Miss Mykie!

    She didn’t spill any tea. She merely put the teapot on the stove! Just gave a politically correct response!

    Good luck to her n the others. BET did em kinda dirty.

  2. Brandi says:

    I personally think the show needs to be cancelled because it was supposed to be for up and coming communication majors in college not for has been rappers. BET did them dry with not lube at all.

    I hope those that were dismissed bounce back & find their professional successes elsewhere. Personally, I thought it was too many host on one show so I got really turned off from just stopping at the channel to see what was going on. Way too busy. I think two host are just enough. I believe that whatever IT the others who left have to get noticed in the first place, will be enough to take them to another level, so I wish them luck. As to whether the show is played out, yup! Of course I am old enough to remember Video Soul. Those were the good/better days!
