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.

Eurweb reports:

“’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.

Perry told Atlanta Journal Constitution blogger Rodney Ho:

“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.

    Mo’nique and her show is very entertaining and she should definitely be paid for the
    amount she is requesting!!!!! She and Rodney Perry make a great couple doing comendy. Her show always has guests that you would probably never see on any
    other show. So many shows with minorities (especially African-Americans) have been
    canceled. This would a big lost to those who watch BET late at night

    Monique has heart and apparently is a very hard working woman. Despite her size (which she also conquered) she has been on every media venue there is. Movies, comedian, comedy club owner, radio, television, host of several shows, sitcom, perfume.
    Honestly, I miss the show and want it back with a little tweeking. Sure she could have toned down a bit but, I liked her honesty. Monique brought on people that we would’nt normally get to see on the other talk shows. Credible actors and actresses that announced she was the first to invite them on a talk show. I also loved the old school artist show had on too. She also brought on people to encourage and inform us. I tend to look at the positive.

    BRING THE SHOW BACK!!!
