After Tia Mowry-Hardrict and Pooch Hall announced their departure from BET’s The Game, it’s no surprise that the television network is working hard to find their replacements. In fact, word on the street is that they’ve already decided on a name for their new characters.
According to reports, the two new additions will be a former child star named Kiera and an Ivy League draft pick named Bryce. Read on for more details…
“The Game”: With Tia Mowry leaving the show, producers are looking for a new female actress to join the cast in the regular role of Kiera, a 20-year-old former child star who has been in the spotlight since she was five years old and starring on a “Cosby” style sitcom. According to the casting call, she’s bright and charming, but struggling into transitioning into a grown-up career.
“The Game” — again: Kiera isn’t the only newbie in town! Another series regular will be hired to play Bryce “The Blueprint” Westbook – a #1, Ivy League draft pick running back who breaks every “dumb athlete” stereotype. He’s not only got a Heisman Trophy, but he’s usually the smartest guy in the room — which sets his new teammates on edge. [SOURCE]
Hmm…I guess we’ll have to wait and see what The Game manages to cook up for the next season…
CEDRIC THE ENTERTAINER & NIECY NASH STAR IN ‘THE SOUL MAN’
A while back we posted a random teaser video of Cendric the Entertainer singing a song called “Sex Wichoo.” Turns out it was a mini-introduction to his upcoming TV Land telelvision series, The Soul Man.

DEION SANDERS TEAMS UP WITH TRACEY EDMONDS FOR REALITY SHOW
Despite Deion Sanders‘ personal yet public warfare with his wife (or soon-to-be former wife) Pilar Sander, the former NFL player is clearly not phased by his marriage drama. In fact, he’s carrying on with his life and has been seen out and about with Tracey Edmonds.
The two of them have been snapped out and about lately and according to The Insider, the two of them will be embarking on…a reality show. Tracey will be taking on the executive producer role and of course Deion in front of the camera. No word on what the show will be called, but word on the curb is that Pilar isn’t too happy about their union (of course).
Check out this clip of Deion & Tracey at ‘Bishop TD Jakes’ 35th Anniversary Gala,’ chatting it up on the red carpet about the new show and how they’re going to avoid the drama that has yet to unfold.
