SHOCKER! Tia Mowry And Pooch Hall To Leave "The Game"

That is, this will be shocking news to those of you out there who are devoted viewers of the BET show The Game.

Last night, Tia Mowry tweeted to her followers that she would not be coming back to the show for its sixth season next year.

As she tweeted: "Just wanted to let all my fans know that I will not be retruning to The Game for Season 6. It was an incredible run and I had lots of fun."

It's also being reported that co-star Pooch Hall (that CAN'T be his real name) will also not be returning to the show as well, although there has been no official confirmation by him or the network yet. However, Hall has now been cast as a regular on the new Showtime series Ray Donovan, which makes his involvement in the next season of The Game unlikely.

No reason was given why Mowry and Hall have left the show, though there are reports that they both left after a salary despute with BET.

Reportedly all the cast members took huge pay cuts when the show moved to the network, on the promise that they would get salary increases if the show was a hit for the network.

The show was, of course, and when Mowry and Hall tried to renegotiate their contacts with BET, the network reneged on those promised salary increases.

When Mowry and Hall made one last final salary offer, not only did BET refuse the offer, they, in fact, fired both Mowry and Hall.

Surely, more of what happened will be coming shortly.
