Has BET cancelled ‘The Mo’Nique Show’?

    BET has reportedly cancelled "The Mo’Nique Show" after only two seasons on air.

    “I was told indefinite hiatus,” Mo’ sidekick Rodney Perry told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

    Although no concrete reasons have been offered to explain why BET isn’t continuing with the show, it’s believed that there have been conflicts brewing between BET and Mo’Nique’s management since the beginning.

    Former BET insiders tell Sister 2 Sister that Mo’Nique seemed much more interested in using the show to further her own career and brand, while compromising little when it came time to promote the network.

    The show’s ratings have been pretty steady despite critics complaining that the host often welcomed guests that weren’t exactly famous.

    Mo’Nique promoted her show as a platform for mostly Black entertainers, business owners, up-and-coming artists, activists and others.

    There’s been no response yet from Mo’Nique or BET.
