After two seasons on the air, BET’s only late night talk show, “The Mo’Nique Show” might be coming to an end.
Rumors circulated around the blogs this morning that BET pulled the plug on Mo’Nique’s talk show. However, the network just responded to reports by saying the talk show wasn’t canceled, but rather put on hiatus.
“’The Mo’Nique Show’ will be on production hiatus beginning in the Fall,” BET spokesperson Kobe Swanson tells EURweb. “However, new episodes of the show will continue to air throughout the summer. Mo’Nique Hicks and ‘The Mo’Nique Show’ are important to the BET Networks family and we look forward to continuing our relationship with her.”
Word on the street is that the two sides, Mo’Nique and the network, are having trouble reaching a financial agreement. Rodney Perry, Mo’Nique’s late-night sidekick suspects the decision to put the show on hiatus has to do with money.
“They (BET) haven’t had this type of investment ever,” he said. “We did 300 shows over two seasons. That’s a huge investment.”
I guess we’ll just have to stay tuned to see what happens.
