The Game premieres this Tuesday, March 26th on BET. But this season there is one major difference…the heart of the show, Tia Mowry (Melanie ‘Med School’ Davis) and Pooch Hall (Derwin Davis) are no longer on the show. Pooch will be back for the first 3 episodes, to exit gracefully, but there is no doubt that Derwin and Melanie will be truly missed.
Cherise Nicole (CNikky) and our associates Eurweb and CocoaFab caught up with the original cast-members, Hosea Chanchez (Malik Wright), Wendy Raquel Robinson (Tasha Mack) and Coby Bell (Jason Pitts) to find out why they would miss Tia and Pooch and how they felt about the drastic change.
Here is a piece of what they had to say:
Wendy Raquel Robinson:
“Wow! You know what was interesting, we became a family, But just like in families, there are marriages, there are divorces there are births, they’re deaths. Tia’s like my baby sister. Ummmm. I’m gon’ miss Med School. You know what I mean. Cause’ she was my little Ah..Ah in the cut and we would just have some of the silliest, craziest girl moments you could ever imagine.”
“Wow. Well you guys aren’t the only ones nervous just so the fans know and the watchers and the viewers of the show. Um’ it was a really scary thing to go into. Ya know coming back from obviously the big news that they weren’t coming back. But, it ended up being a lot easier than I thought it would be to adapt to new people. I mean it’s to be expected, we spent like 8 years together, But it helps that Tia and Pooch have gone on to do great things so you know their working. If they had been at home with no jobs I’d probably be like what and the Hell happened!?”
Coby Bell on what he will miss most:
“Just hanging out with them. All of their talents aside, you know what I mean, they’re so talented and funny. But we are such a tight family on this show, from day 1, from really early on in the first season. Yeah so I really really miss just working with them and being with them.”
