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!
