Rumor Has It “House Of Payne” Is Coming Back…Lance Gross Responds

July 11, 2014  |  

Were you a fan of Tyler Perry’s TBS sitcom “House of Payne”? If so, you might be in luck because rumor has it the show might be coming back. Lance Gross let us in on that little secret during the Essence Festival, but when we asked the actor if he could confirm the news he played coy as we told him Oprah needs to go ahead and pick that up for OWN.

“House of Payne” aside, Lance told us he has some other major projects in the works which, to be honest, we weren’t nearly as concerned about as his smile. That’s why we had to side-eye the talented actor and photographer when he tried to convince us he’s just an average Joe. Lies!

Check out our interview above and tell us what you think. Are you here for a “House of Payne” do-over?

    How about Oprah bring back his show, CRISIS! It was such a good show and they didnt even give it a chance! Makes me so mad!

  • uniquefashionista

    So glad to hear this. I loved House of Payne. Such a good show. I love Lance Gross (what a beautiful man), but I am totally in love with Allen Payne. I’ve loved Allen Payne ever since he played “Lance” on the Cosby Show. Great news!

  • Newsjunkie

    I don’t know why the show is…..(fell asleep) boring. And “Meet the Browns” was funnier.

    I’m just here for Lance’s face and the comments. I was never a big fan of the show.

    Yass! I loved that show. And Lance….umm ummm ummmm!!! What I wouldn’t do! Shhh don’t tell my husband lol

  • LisaMarie Austin

    I loved Lance Gross. I loved this Character (Calvin) in House of Payne, which by the way that I do agree is an awesome sitcom. I even loved his character in CRISIS tv series. He is such a down to earth person and very respectable. I would love to see more of him in House Of Pain or any other future projects that he is in.

    For all the haters house of Payne was one of the best sitcoms on tv then period!!!

    • Shawndrea Rachelle

      Yea I think half of the comments were just hating because all the other ones were

  • Tigger83

    Why was it canceled in the first place? For better or worse is not good. Alot of people who bash TP. Do i like everything he has done…of course not(like maybe half of his work) but i applaud what the man is doing in putting black actors to work. Who else is doing that right now?

    • Rose

      Should we applaud people for putting black to work even tho the product is not good? What if it was actually a product DETRIMENTAL to us…should we still applaud?

      Btw- I know art is highly subjective so I’m no saying the issue of TP is that cut & dry. However, I’m just giving the other side to your argument. As for HoP, I really liked Allen Payne’s character…he did a great job. Overall, the show was okay for me..but I don’t need to see it back. Honestly, another writer/show runner would be needed to take it to the next level. Loved Lance on Crisis & in that indie movie he did . I hope TPTB gives him another shot, bec he’s def a rising talent.

        Of course he had some hit and misses but for the most part I have enjoyed his work

  • ebonyhud

    I liked House of Pain BEFORE Kevin and Maranda’s Story line. Personally they are a very unlikable couple ugh. My favorite character is Curtis.

  • Suchalady

    No…please stop.

  • DeDee82388

    Oh God I hope not that show sucked

  • I hope so! I miss seeing “Curtis & Ella,” & given how the series ended, it should DEFINITELY be given another season!

  • Lance is so handsome,ill watch it for him.

  • EP

    NO I was not a fan of House of Payne but I love watching Lance Gross on TV. He is so nice looking. I love him.
