Pop Culture ... Keeping It 100


BET has failed again, yesterday it was reported that the network fired their two lead characters Derwin and Melanie(Pooch Hall and Tia Mowry) from 'The Game'. Originally the show aired on the CW network for four seasons, CW failed too, and cancelled the show. The fans petitioned and BET tossed the show a lifeline. The first season 'The Game' aired on BET it garnered the network's highest ratings ever for a sitcom. Shortly after the honeymoon on BET, the powers that be let the 'Kelly' (Brittany Daniels) character go, who by the way was white, talk about reverse discrimination. Two seasons later, the show remained the highest rated show for the network. In a contract negotiation dispute the Hall and Mowry were promised a raise, which the network did not comply, when the two actors stood their ground, the network fired them. (Keeping It 100) this is very typical of BET they rarely get it right, since 'The Game' started airing the network debut two other original series ('Let's Stay Together' and 'Reed Between The Lines')two average shows at best. If the network has money for these two shows, clearly they should have made good on their promise to give the original cast members raises, after all the network was paying them a 'reality' star type wage. This is a NO BUENO, and another EPIC FAIL by the network and their president Debra Lee.

Lebron James was awarded the MVP Basketball Honor for the third time, and over Kobe Bryant. (Keeping It 100) Cry baby Bryant does his thing, but Bron did his thing this season, especially with Dwayne Wade being out for eleven games, The Miami Heat won 9 out 11 games because of James, in spite of Wade's notable absence.

Hey Y'all singer Britney Spears has inked a 15 million dollar deal to be the new judge on Simon Cowell's X-Factor. Spears did a press conference in New York City with Cowell, L.A. Reid and other new judge Demi Lovato. (Keeping It 100) here's another show using a judge who has no singing talent, Jennifer Lopez, Paula Adbul and now Spears. C'mon now really? The only show that gets it right is The Voice, with Ceelo, Adam Levin, Blake Shelton and Christina Aguilera all TALENTED singers.

Deion Sanders was orded to pay soon to be ex-wifey Pilar 10K a month in child support. Pilar was also ordered to return six containers of Deion's property by July 1.
This is the latest chapter in their ongoing, incredibly nasty legal war. Just last week, Deion was granted a restraining order against Pilar ... ordering her to stay at least 500 yards away from his Dallas mansion. (Keeping It 100) Another case of immature children getting married for the wrong reasons, and a gold digger looking to keep the lifestyle grown accustomed to.

TV host Ryan Seacrest purchased TV show host Ellen Degeneres mansion for 49 million dollars. (Keeping It 100)That's just too much house, and a bit of a ego stunt, these two stars seem to have a LOT in common, and that's ALL I'm saying. Ironically last week Seacrest proposed to his fiance' on AI. My MY MY you just got to love Hollywood.

President Obama came out in support of Gay marriage. (Keeping It 100) I don't really believe that he does, I think it's another case of his advisors not letting him speak for himself, very much like that of his opinion on his minister a couple years back. It's okay that we all don't see eye to eye, that's what makes America GREAT! Man up Mr. President, say how you really feel, someone along the way isn't going to like you or agree with you, such is life.

    3. Look like my DVR will have more space to record the ELLEN show, LOL, If Derwin & Mel Leave, you might as well change the title to "GAME OVER", hahahahaha .......I wouldn't tune in to save my soul & Let's Stay Together is a waste of space, the only reason they get my ratings is because I'm to lazy to change the channel after, The Game, is over. If this show is canceled I'm taking my "ASS" to MTV, the hell with BET! LOL....oh and to answer the question, the episodes are so spaced out, I don't even know what I'm watching anymore. Since I'm a fan I still watch!!

    2. Wow, I can not even explain how heart broken I am. I have neen watching this show since ot first premeired on CW! I just cried inside. To say BET was aupposed to make the show better. CW definitely jad some better story lines.!!! The only reason i kept watching the show was bc of tia and pooch and now they're fired??? This is why no black shows survive. Bc people dont want to put the necessary money it takes for it to be successful. # ruined my day for sure

  3. Who are you to say if President Obama supports gay marriage or not, or his issues with his minsiter. Maybe you're the one who doesn't support gay marriage.

  9. If BET Messes Up Another Show, They Might As Well Kick The Can! Our Black Celebs Already Know To Go To VH1, Bravo, WETV, ETC Instead of BET Because BET Plays W/ People's Money! What Did They Expect? The Actors And Actresses ALREADY Took A Pay Cut When The Game Got Picked Up By BET! So You Expect Them Not To Ask For A Raise After 2 Years?! People Have To Live, Take Care Of Their Families, And Take Care Of House And Home! So For BET To FIRE 2 Of The Main Reasons People Watch The Show, Thats DUMB And An EPIC Fail On Their Part Again! And For Us Fans That FOUGHT For The Show Years Ago, This Is A Slap In The Face! Once Again, Disappointed By "OUR" TV Station!

  21. GAME OVER at BET they're firing great characters and screwing up programming. Today Terrence and Rocsi were layed off, it's just crazy, viacom and Debra Lee suck. I have an idea how about you fire Debra Lee, makes perfect sense to me.

  23. Moreover, the investigation of that reported occurrence was not
    pursued. s car insurance company will, most likely,
    deny that their client is at fault and offer settlements
    that aren. Finding a lawyer that specializes in auto accident law will prove vital at this point.

  24. So at this carbon right here has two bonds. If you're existing goes
    beyond the scope of an instance apple retail store of
    Triangle struct. Now 5 2 it will leave 5 aple retail store places is the total number of unknown forces is equal to 100.
    Actually it turns out these are the easiest kind of problems you will
    get. We're going to take a head-on approach in the apple
    retail store field. This means that if this is how
    we read in the size when required.
