We told you this past weekend about the surprising news that the hit VH1 show, Single Ladies, would not be returning for a fourth season. The show just had its premiere in January for the third season after being on break for more than a year after the second season ended. And despite its popularity, the third season will have a short run, ending the series as a whole on March 24. VH1 has already spoken out in a statement about the decision not to move forward with Single Ladies:
“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.”
One of the lead actresses of the show, Lisa Raye, has decided to speak out too, doing so on Tuesday on her Facebook page. This is what she had to say:
All things come to an end.
It has truly been a intersting journey for me. Unfortunately that journey has come to an end. Over the past 3 years being apart of a show that showcased the beauty of friendships, the power of loyalty, some amazing trendsetting fashions and steamy romance. It Was really great to give voice and life to every day situations that we as women face doing so in such a positive relatable Manor is what made single ladies so great. To all of my fans I want to thank you for your continued support we wouldn’t have made it this far without all of you. Of course this will not be the end of Lisa Raye please stay tuned for upcoming projects I send peace and blessings to my cast mates for their upcoming endeavors as well.
On a side note, a petition has actually been made on Petition Buzz (yes there are quite a few petition websites these days) to keep the show going, and while you might think it has no chance, petitions and support are the reason The Game ended up returning to television…so who knows?

The time is almost near! After an explosive season six finale, The Game returns Tuesday, March 4th at 10 pm with the whole gang plus an old familiar face. In preparation for the highly anticipated series return, we take a look at where each character left off last season. And, as an added bonus, we’ve come up with a quiz for you see which The Game character you are. Take it here and let us know your results!
During season six, Tasha Mack was caught up in a love triangle between her longtime friend-turned-fiancé Pookie and her old boyfriend Rick Fox before making the decision to be with the retired Los Angeles Lakers star. But soon the rekindled relationship’s honeymoon phase was over and Tasha had come to her senses. Realizing that she’s made pretty much the same mistakes in all of her relationships, and tired of making poor decisions, the high-powered sports agent decides to seek some professional counseling. During the session Tasha, who was joined by her son Malik Wright for part of it, learned some truths about her past that will continue to pop up in her relationships until she’s ready to face them. Taking the advice of her therapist, Tasha goes on an apology tour to make amends with people she had beef with in the past. This leads her to seek her father out so she could forgive him for not being there for much of her life. During their conversation, Tasha learns Malik was badly injured after attending an event in Los Angeles and she rushes to be by his side. Her father makes the trip with her and is finally there for her when she needs him the most.
When we watch “The Game” usually the actors are in serious mode, conveying the latest dramatic scene. But when you spend so much time around people, you develop a nice, jovial relationship. The cast members are actually quite close. Check out Jay Ellis and Hosea Chancez joke with one another and then Coby Bell and Brandy on the next page.
Khloe Kardashian gave Game an a**ful last night in Hollywood … twerking hard on the rapper in the middle of a packed nightclub.
Khloe put on a clinic in Tru Nightclub with moves that screamed, “I’m single and ready to mingle” … with Game’s crotch.
While we’ve seen Game and Khloe kick it in clubs before … we’ve NEVER seen them on the dance floor like this. They always deny they’re together — but there’s no denying their genitals were together last night.

Though popular VH1 reality series “Marrying The Game” was supposed to be about rapper Jayceon “The Game” Taylor and on-again, off-again fiancée, Tiffney Cambridge, and their relationship, their adorable daughter, Cali, just about stole the show. Now it looks like little Cali may be getting a show of her very own. It was announced via her mom, Tiffney’s, Instagram page that she had a meeting with Nickelodeon earlier this week.
“Hello guys???? It’s @littlemisscali.
I had a wonderful time at Nickelodeon today, and I want to thank some special people for getting me there..Thank u Jesus first. I thank my daddy @thedocumentary for loving me, taking care of me, and providing me with opportunities like this one. Daddy, you’re my #1 fan and I love u. Thank u to my nanny @luv2blulu for getting me up & dressed & ready while mommy’s at work & for always keeping my baby hair on point. Thank you to my Mo @iammoniquelauren for styling me so cute and for getting a nice lady @kendallskastle to send me this adorable outfit. And thank you to the nice ladies I met at Nickelodeon for talking to me today.
Details regarding exactly what became of the meeting are still scarce, but we could totally see Cali being a huge television star. She definitely has a face for TV.
Earlier this month we told you that rapper The Game was being courted by VH1 to participate in some capacity in the debut season of “Love & Hip Hop LA.” Since The Game jumped into world of reality TV as a package deal with “Marrying The Game” co-star and on-again, off-again fiancée, Tiffney Cambridge, some naturally assumed that Tiffney would also be joining the cast of “Love & Hip Hop LA” with him. It turns out those assumptions were wrong.
“I cannot confirm this [Game's LHHLA involvement] as this is not something that Tiffney is involved in,” Tiffney’s publicist told Mara The Hip Hop Socialite. “There is no confirmation of any shows involving my client at this time.”
This isn’t completely surprising, as it looks like Tiffney and The Game have broken up, yet again. If you recall, earlier this month we told you that the former G-Unit rapper attacked Tiffney’s friend and fellow reality star, Tami Roman, via Instagram. According to his posts, Tami was to blame for the demise of their relationship.
“I hope you and that d*ke b**ch blue burn in hell for ruining my family!!!!!” he wrote beneath one of Tami’s photos.”Ya’ll f**king with the wrong ni**a!!!”
“Go ahead and block me & erase this b**ch!!!” he continued. “That ain’t gonna change nothing or what I”m about to do!”
It’s still unclear exactly what The Game believes Tami has done to “ruin” his family and Tiffney’s rep declined to comment on his outburst.
“At this time I have no comment. Tiffney is really trying to continue on her positive endeavors and not feed into negativity and rumors.”
So much for that. Do you thin Tiffney would’ve been a good fit for “Love & Hip Hop LA”?
While most of us were still trying to wrap our minds around the idea of The Game possibly starring on Love and Hip Hop LA, it seems that he was busy calling Tami Roman everything but a child of God on Instagram. And not on his Instagram, but according to Necole Bitchie, on Roman’s Instagram. He allegedly wrote this in the comment section of one of her pictures:
I hope you and that d*ke b**ch blue burn in hell for ruining my family!!!!! Ya’ll f**king with the wrong ni**a!!!
Go ahead and block me & erase this b**ch!!! That ain’t gonna change nothing or what I”m about to do!
And here are the actual comments below courtesy of Necole Bitchie:
Not sure what his ranting messages even mean, but neither Cambridge, nor Roman, who are good friends, have responded directly to these statements. Ironically, a few weeks ago, someone commented on a picture Cambridge reposted, which showed that Roman had picked her as a “woman crush” for “woman crush Wednesday.” The person tried to ask Tiffney if she or Tami were bisexual (“Les b honest ? Bi?”). Creeping on her Instagram, The Game checked the follower by saying, “watch yo f**kin mouth.” Roman also jumped on the post and said the following:
So to hear him calling folks the d-word all of a sudden is crazy. On a side note, after his rant, The Game posted an image on his Instagram that said “SINGLE.” But if we can keep it real…I don’t think anyone could ruin The Game and Cambridge’s relationship but him and her. After watching their reality show and seeing how absolutely NOT serious he was about walking down the aisle with her when that’s clearly what Cambridge wanted, I don’t know how he thought they were going to make things work for the long run. Either way, we’re surprised at this outburst.
Last week we reported that Mona Scott-Young and VH1 producers hit a huge bump in the road while pulling things together for their franchise spin-off “Love & Hip Hop LA.” According to reports, casting was scheduled to begin later this month; however, casting directors are having a difficult time wrangling a big name star to headline the show. As previously reported, reality TV vet Ray J was supposed to be the spin-off’s breakout star, but unfortunately, his schedule is all tied up, as he’s busy filming for Oxygen’s “Bad Girls Club All-Stars.” Sources close to production say that VH1 and Mona plan to go ahead and film the stories of the show’s smaller stars like Brooke Valentine and video Vixen Brie Myles until they can secure a bigger star.
Luckily for Mona and the folks over at VH1, it looks like not all hope is lost. Apparently The Game is being courted to play some sort of role on the show. Yesterday the rapper shared a photo of himself alongside Mona Scott-Young and what we presume to be the “Love & Hip Hop LA” production team having lunch at Crustacean in Beverly Hills.
This actually makes a lot of sense, as The Game is already a part of the VH1 family. While I’m sure The Game would be a cool addition to “Love & Hip Hop LA,” part of me is secretly wishing that Ray J signs on once filming for “Bad Girls Club All-Stars” wraps up. For some strange reason, he makes for great reality television.
So far nothing official has been confirmed on behalf of The Game or VH1 as to whether or not he’ll actually be joining the cast; however, it looks like there is a great chance that he will be. We’ll keep you posted as further details emerge.
Do you think The Game would make a good addition to the show?
Days After Bey Says Being A Role Model Stifled Her, The Game’s 3-Year-Old Daughter Sings About Surfboard Swervin’
If we’ve learned nothing else about Beyoncè since the surprise release of her new surprise album, we’ve learned that she’s feeling a lot more free to talk (and sing) about her sexuality. In the fifth installment of her documentary, the “Drunk In Love” singer recently revealed that trying to comply with the guidelines of being a kid-friendly role model significantly stifled her creativity.
“I started out when I was 9 with the girls of Destiny’s Child and our first album came out when I was 15,” she explained. “I was a child. But now I’m in my 30s, and those children that grew up listening to me have grown up and I always felt it was my responsibility to be aware of kids and their parents and all these generations and I feel like it stifled me. I felt like, in a sense, I could not express everything. I’ve done so many things in my life, in my career, that at this point I feel like I’ve earned the right to be me and to express any and every part of myself.”
In the documentary, mega producer Pharrell can also be seen praising Beyoncé for her boldness that is setting wives and mothers free.
“Only a momma can talk like that. Only a wife can talk like that. That is your strength,” said Pharrell. “You just ran through jail and let all the women out ‘cuz. You set women free!”
While Bey’s new found freedom may be great for her own personal growth and her growth as an artist, it’s not the best news for the parents of children who adore her. For example, rapper The Game recently posted a video of himself playfully scolding his 3-year-old daughter, Cali Dream, who sang her hear out to Bey’s “Drunk In Love” track—including the part about surfboard swervin’.
“@littlemisscali got mad at me cause I told her she can’t sing the “surfboard” part on @Beyonce & went to get babied by my momma,” The Game wrote.
