The Game Pays All Cast Member The Same Salary

On the radio this morning, Gary with Da Tea, was talking about the pay scale controversy surrounding cast mates on the TV show, The Game. Yesterday reports hit the internet that Brittany Daniel, the only white cast member, was being paid twice as much as the other cast members, including veteran actress Wendy Raquel Robinson. So naturally this sparked some racial controversy, the only problem, the rumors were not true according to BET:

Derwin and Melanie The Game The Game Pays All Cast Member The Same Salary

The recent report regarding certain members of the cast of “The Game” being disproportionally paid by BET is completely false.  As a matter of policy, BET does not engage in public discussions about salaries or similar private matters with its artists.   However, out of our deep respect and appreciation for the talent and hard work of the entire cast and crew of “The Game,” we cannot allow such inaccurate reports to go uncorrected. To be clear,  there is no disparity in salaries among the cast of “The Game.” We continue to look forward to bringing new episodes to the loyal fans of this series on 1/11/11.

Anyway The Game is set to premiere Tuesday, January, 11, 2011 on BET. I will definitely be watching on twitter, so please join me. I’m so excited!

  1. I am super stoked about the show! Hopefully it will be just the beginning of more great sitcoms on television, like the good shows…. ie, MARTIN! :-D

  2. I’m glad to know that Brittany isn’t getting paid more than the others – she and Wendy are about on the same status as far as actresses who have done movies, so that wouldn’t be fair. I’d like to add that I went to school with Brittany and her sister Cynthia and they are both wonderful girls…I’m so happy to see her doing well. Can’t wait to see the new season

    • @yusufwife, I wouldnt say that they are of the same status Wendy is a vet she has done movies which Brittany hasent. Wendy was on the Steve Harvy show and her list of accomplishments on her resume is way longer than Brittany’s.

  3. I cant wait for the show and I hope that Kelly an Jason get back together. i also think that they should bring Rick Fox back if he and Tasha got married at the end of the season that would be awesome!

    • @sheena, FINALLY a post that asks the question I want the answer to…where is RICK?! He and Tasha had heat! I also like the fact that this seems to be Malik’s season; in that his azz is being taken down a notch! And I’m glad T.T. is the torpedo that is headed in his direction; He has in the past and continues to treat him badly. I hope Jason and Kelly come to an understanding, but he still needs this reality click and Kelly needs to not get too big for her panties. And come on cheap azz Melanie, if you were going to sneak a PT you should have spent the cash to have it professionally done, or at least let Maury handle it.

    • @sheena, I havent watched the show yet but from my understanding Rick Fos isnt on their any more. Tasha and Rick (Rick __Fox) made such a awesome couple on the show why was he written off. Please bring him back. Pay the man whatever he wants.

  4. Thanks, Sheena…I was thinking of stars on the show who have also done movies…I compared the two on wikipedia and definitely see your point.

  5. love the ideal of The Game cumon bck we need more black shows on the air, bt knwing the seasonings before the actress Kellie getin paid more is totally unfair….i can say tht did miss the show…hopefully ths season all actors an actress r treated th same

  6. @sheena. Actually brittany daniel has done several movies and was a teenage actress with her own tv show alongside her twin sister on the Sweet valley high tv show. So she’s a veteran in her own right. And lets not forget that Tia also had a successful sitcom as well as movies out. All the wome are doing their thing.

    • @athena,

      It’s just unnecessary drama, all of these women are talented, and have had longevity in the hard world of entertainment.

  7. IT IS GREAT TO SEE NETWORKS LIKE BET AND TV ONE PICK UP BLACK SITCOMS. I USE TO BE VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH THE CONTENT THAT BET SHOW. OVER THE PAST COUPLE OF YEARS THEY ARE TRYING TO PRODUCE BETTER MATERIAL. I HOPE THAT OWN NETWORK PICK UP MORE BLACK SITCOMS WHICH WILL PRODUCE MORE JOBS FOR BLACK ACTORS. I ALSO HOPE THEY SHOW QUALITY SITCOMS.

  8. sorry for the misspelling but thats Rick Fox….Rick…..Fox
