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:
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!
