Tia Mowry has confirmed rumors that she won’t be returning for the 6th season of the BET sitcom “The Game”.
Mowry broke the news to fans on Tuesday via Twitter, writing:
There’s been no official reason for Mowry’s departure from the show, either from Mowry herself or B.E.T., but according to Mowry, she has a full plate. She and husband Cory Hardrict are currently busy raising their 10-month-old daughter Cree — the couple’s first; is preparing for the 2nd season of her, and twin sister Tamera‘s, Style network reality show “Tia & Tamera” (which has the distinction of being the highest-rated series in the network’s history), and is on a nation-wide tour promoting her book, ‘Oh Baby!: Pregnancy Tales and Advice From One Hot Mama to the Next’
It’s been rumored that Mowry’s split with the show (and the possible exit of co-star Pooch Hall who portrays Derwin Davis) may be a matter of money.
“The Game”‘s storyline follows closely the relationship between Mowry’s character, Melanie Barnett and Hall’s character, Derwin Davis. It’s unclear how the exit of Mowry —and possibly Hall— will effect the future of the show.
