Say it ain’t so! It has been announced that VH1′s Single Ladies won’t be coming back for a fourth season.
Known as the network’s first hour-long scripted series, the show has been garnering great ratings this season including 2.6 million viewers for the premiere episode. So this is a definite surprise to the show’s fans.
The upcoming March 24 season finale will serve as the series finale and VH1 released the following statement in regards to the cancellation.
We’ve been proud to deliver three seasons of the drama, romance and style that engaged viewers in each episode of Single Ladies. Although we’ve decided not to move forward with another season, we hope to work again with the talented cast, creatives and producers as well as our partners at Flavor Unit Entertainment in the near future. We also thank the show’s fans for their support since the premiere in 2011.
Actress and “rocker” Jada Pinkett-Smith stopped by Arsenio Hall on Friday (February 28) and opened up about her friendship with the late rapper/actor Tupac Shakur.
She and Tupac met in the mid 80s at the Baltimore School for the Arts and were best friends up until his tragic death in ’96.
When asked what their relationship was like, she responded:
Pac was probably one of the first male figures that I had in my life that saw the beauty and the talent and my intelligence separated from sex. That’s something that a young girl usually gets from their father. I didn’t have that. Pac was the first one, that it wasn’t about sex.
I have to say that Jada was the shit in the 90s, but these new cheekbones take away from her beauty. It’s actually kinda of sad that she went “hollywood” on us. Makes you wonder what Tupac would say if he saw her today…
