Tia Mowry Still Says Decision To Leave "The Game" Was MUTUAL

Tia Mowry hit up VH1's "Big Morning Buzz Live" this AM and spoke on her departure from BET's hit show "The Game."  Check it inside...

 

After dishing about her new book Oh, Baby!, her 11-month-old son Cree and his first words and cuteness, Tia reaffirmed her reasoning for leaving her show "The Game."  She maintains it was a mutual decision between her and the network, and she wants to focus on her other current projects.

It was definitely a mutual decision.  It was time for me to move on to other things like writing this book, and I just finished doing a movie on ABC Family, and then I'm working on the show with my sister, "Tia & Tamera", which premieres June 11th."

Still sounds shady.  Especially given how sudden it was, and not to mention Doug Banks radio personality DeDe McGuire's tweet the other day that said Tia told her she was fired:

Wow!!! For all those that watch "The Game" on BET Tia Mowry just told me she was informed an hour ago that she was FIRED from the show!

Hmmm....

By the way, based on this past Tuesday's episode, it looks like "Melanie Davis" wasn't returning anyway...

The Randomness:

1.  Get ready kids.  "Boondocks" is returning to Adult Swim for season 4!  STORY

BET made a grave mistake! The show will fail without Tia & PoWendycan't character is not realistic & can't carry the show. The writing has gotten poorer since coming to BET. It is very boring now. This change puts the nails in the coffin. It will bite the dust!

That storyline is just plan

That storyline is just plan dumb. Brandy is the annoying ghetto black girl on the show, which is two too many since Tasha gets more retarded each episode. The show has gone down since BET took it over. Its just a bunch of stereotypes and coonery. Tia & Pooch will be fine, the shows going to get cancelled soon anyway.

i hate to say it, but BET didn't save them. if anything, they brought the show down, and likely couldn't pay these folks their just due.

Doubt I'll be watching, &

Doubt I'll be watching, & doubt the show will survive well enough without her and Pooch (if he's leaving too). It's already been tanking as some said, & I'm tired of sooo much drama. Just when I thought Melanie & Derwin might have a baby, they yank that opportunity away. And after all they went through, they deserved some happiness of their own. I was like, damn, can't they just be happy for once!!!? smh Like someone said, once Bob Johnson left & BET went to Viacom, it was downhill from there.

Oh well, I think the show has ran its course anyway. It has been dragging on and on this season. This used to be my can't miss show, but I would rather see it end than continue this downward spiral. I hope all of the cast finds other work, I really like all of them. I hear Pooch already has a Showtime gig, so that is a good look for him. Tia will always be able to do her twin shows and movies with Tamera.

That show sucks now--if

That show sucks now--if there's no Jason and Chardonnay in the episode, I don't watch it. That's the only storyline I'm interested in now. What the hell happened to Tia's character-she's selfish, conniving and spoiled now vs the supportive, loving, caring, intelligent character of then (CW). It's the same with Derwin's character--he went from God-fearing to so damn evil. Wendy should leave too--her storyline is dead and her character is desperate.

Lets just put it this way, If

Lets just put it this way, If she left, it was a super wise decision and if she was fired, BET did her a humongous favour. Tia should be happy she's no longer associated with the debacle The Game has become.
Realist 's picture

I don't blame her for

I don't blame her for choosing her other projects. After what BET has turned The Game into, I wouldn't want to be associated with any longer either. Not to mention, they took a pay cut when they went to BET. It just doesn't seem worth it. And Wendy Raquel aka Tasha Mack, might want to rethink some things too before she become type-cast as always being the ghetto hood mama with man issues. BET knows how to mess up a good thing. Everything they touch turns to hot garbage.

Since BET picked the show up

Since BET picked the show up it was some TRASH. I, like others, tried to stick it out and it was out right BAD! It had gotten to the point where I forgot what time it even came on. The hell wit that wack ass show. ----------> NEXT!!!

Tomatoes, toe-ma-toes is how

Tomatoes, toe-ma-toes is how I feel. Who care if their contracts weren't renewed or if they decided to leave? They're both handling it like professional should. I think it was wearing on Tia to travel to ATL to shoot with a new baby & husband, that's a grind. I knew in my heart that BET was going to eff up the show but like others have said maybe a new cast would breathe life into this show although the "Merwin" & Malik storylines pretty much showed what can happen to young athletes so where would they go with a new cast? Anyway I love Tia & Tamera and can't wait till their reality show returns and wish the best for them both.

I've been a die hard fan of

I've been a die hard fan of The Game since the pilot. I, along with thousands of fans, fought to bring it back. Even though many fans abandoned the show during season 4 for whatever reason (and they had every right to), I stuck it out hoping that seasons 4 and 5 would get better. Now BET pulls this shyt! Without Tia and Pooch, there will be no more Game. I love the rest of the cast, but I do not think they'll be able to carry the show. We loved Derwin and Melanie Davis! It was bad enough when Kelly was eliminated, now the two main key players are leaving. There is no way they will be able to keep this show afloat. They might as well not have a S6.

Personally I was over

Personally I was over Melanie. They've done all they can do with her besides have them divorce and move on to others. I'm hoping they keep Pooch. The Sabers need him so he has a reason to be there. Meanwhile I'd love nothing better than to have Jason and Chardonney become the main characters. LOVE THEM!

Who cares about her and Poochie Coochie leaving! This is TRUE NFL life. Play today, gone tomorrow. They got cut, traded, on the injured reserved list! Get'em outta here! Just get new draft picks and lets keep it moving. They need a sexier female lead anyway....yeah I said it! LOL

BET and viacom put out a statement saying that her current projects was interfering with the show....so I believe after given her the ultimatum you can either focus on the show or focus your other projects...because you can not do both!! and she choose "other".... and they said we wish you the best in your future endeavors....Goodbye!

Another day. Another horrible

Another day. Another horrible wig on Tia's head. SMH! They may as well cancel the show if Melanie is gone. The writing and story lines have been piss poor and reflect the fact that Mara can't juggle too many projects at once. The Game has tremendously suffered because they're busy shooting 'Jumping The Broom', 'Sparkle' and Gabrielle's new show, 'Being Mary Jane'. It's unfortunate that a great show that once had all the leading elements for a comedy has been ruined. If she had better writers on her team, we wouldn't even notice. No sense in replacing her character when this is likely the last season anyway.

Right, it just still seems

Right, it just still seems shady. This past Tuesday's episode was like she was leaving anyway. And a few weeks back Pooch Hall said on 106 & park that he landed a role on Showtime and that he was trying to work it out that he could do both, and then something to the extent that he was growing as an actor, so maybe BET gave them an ultimatum? Who knows but the show did get picked up for another season so it will go on without Tia and possibly without Pooch Hall. Nonetheless, it will be interesting to see how the show will pan out without the fan favorites Mel & Derwin.

Tia definitely got fired. She

Tia definitely got fired. She tweeted wendy williams that SHE got the call after appearing on the show. If you ask me, they kind of blindsided her. Yeah she has a book out, and a reality show coming out bug the book is written and her show is done finished filming so it seemed like she did what she had to to ensure she could be available for filming next season. The show got corny and the storyline got way too dark for it to be a comedy. Wish her and her husband the best cause lord know its been a minute since he booked a gig.

Why would she be fired if

Why would she be fired if she's one of the main characters of the show! I agree that it was a mutual decision. JLo is leaving American Idol and her pay check was HEFTY. These actresses have families, other projects, and money in the bank! The GAME was on BET.....no respect to BET, but BET is not a major Network. If she was abruptly leaving Criminal Minds, Scandal or Law & Order, then I would see the big deal!!
