Well it looks like The View is going through yet another change. Boy this show has literally been playing musical chairs for the past few years. Today Raven Symone announced that she will be leaving the show, to work on a spin off show on the Disney Channel. The show will take off from Raven’s former hit show That’s so Raven left off. Raven will leave The View in December.
Gabrielle Union star of BET’s drama series Being Mary Jane has filed a lawsuit against BET. The network agreed to pay Gabrielle 3 Millions for a certain number of episodes. Not only has the network decided to tape season 4 and season 5, which gives the actress double the work. The network is not willing to give the actress more money. Gabrielle’s contract states that she will not shoot more than 13 episodes per season. When the show runner Mara Brock Akil left the show, many wondered how the show would survive without her. Things are not looking good.

ABC’s drama series Mistresses started off with a bang. The show was a must see. It was hot and full of love, lust and betrayal. Unfortunately after the first season there was a major change in the cast and the story lines began to crumble. After 4 seasons ABC has decided to put a can on the show. This was long overdue.
Just hold your horses, Empire will be back really soon. Season 3 will be star studded. Taye Diggs will join the cast as Angelo Dubois, a community organizer and local politician.
The lovely Phylicia Rashad will play Diana Dubois Angelo’s mother.
We are all familiar with Mrs. Rashad’s role as the no nonsense but classy Mrs. Huxtble. This should be pretty interesting to see her and Cookie go at it this season.
Before Yandy and Mandeecee, there was Jim and Chrissy. You can say that this couple helped pioneer the highly successful Love and Hip Hop. Jim is a rapper and Chrissy is an entrepreneur. We first saw them on the premiere season of Love and hip Hop NY. We learned that these two are good at getting money, and loving one another. Unfortunately their love for each other hasn’t gotten them to the altar. This is WE TV comes into play. The producers at WE TV have joined forces with the hip hop couple to showcase their journey to marriage or not. Vow or Never premieres on September 1, 2016 on WE TV. Check your local listings for times. Check out the trailer below. This show looks like it is going to be a hit. Glad to see Jim and Chrissy back on the small screen again. #powercouple
In the words of the late BB King, The thrill is gone for Caitlyn Jenner and her reality TV series. E! has decided not to renew the docu-series I am Cait for a 3rd season. The series followed the former Olympian Bruce Jenner, through his transition into Caitlyn Jenner. This was a story that needed to be told, and it debuted with a huge audience. The series viewership slowly began to decline, going from the millions to just a few hundred thousand. I am pretty sure this is not the last we heard from Cait.
