Tia Mowry Hardrict Abruptly Leaves BET’s ‘The Game’
(NEW YORK) -- Rumors hit the Internet Tuesday saying that actress Tia Mowry Hardrict was fired from BET's The Game, the very series she helped bring back to the small screen after it was canceled by the CW.
And although many are saying Mowry Hardrict's departure was due to a breakdown in salary negotiations, a rep for the 33-year-old actress stated in an email to ABC News Radio: "It was a mutual decision and not based on salary negotiations."
"[She's] just focusing on all of her new and up-and-coming project," the rep added.
In fact, Mowry Hardrict has a lot on her plate right now. Her new pregnancy guide, Oh, Baby!: Pregnancy Tales and Advice from One Hot Mama to Another, just hit bookshelves on Monday. Also, her Style TV reality show with twin sister Tamera Mowry Housley, Tia & Tamera, premieres its second season on June 11. In 2011, the show became Style TV's most-watched series premiere ever. Not to mention, Mowry Hardrict is starring in ABC Family's upcoming musical The Mistle-Tones alongside Tori Spelling.
Sources say co-star Pooch Hall, who plays her husband Derwin on The Game, won't return for season six as well.
