The Game: Brittany Daniels Out, Brandy Norwood In! [Details]
Rucuss staffJanuary 10, 2012
The new season of “The Game” kicks off tonight with plenty of new storylines.
The biggest one of them all is surrounding Jason Pitts character. Coby Bell, who plays Jason, has a new love interest on the show. Brandy Norwood will play Jason’s love interest Chardonnay. She marries Jason during a drunken quickie wedding in Mexico during the first episode.
Chardonnay then complains to Jason about his lack of interest in a relationship with a black woman. Brandy will appear in 11 episodes of season 5. This role marks Norwood’s most significant return to scripted television since UPN’s sitcom, Moesha, which ended in 2001.
Most of the original cast returns with the exception of Kelly Pitts. Wendy Williams asked Tia Mowry and Wendy Raquel Robinson on a recent episode of the show about Brittany Daniels, who played Kelly on the show. Mowry and Robinson simply said Daniels took some time out for herself.
But according to TamaraTattles, her disappearance had something to do with Keenan Ivory Wayans. On the Wendy Williams show, the mouthy talk show host implied Daniels ‘had a nervous breakdown.’ There were reports that Daniels didn’t take her breakup with Wayans well.
Many speculated that Kelly was on the outs after she was reduced to a recurring role last season. She was only featured in six of the 13 episodes. BET has not announced Daniels departure but its clear she’s not a part of this season. She’s not featured in any of the promo commercials and the season has already wrapped up filming.
We’re crossing our fingers for a return next season….if there is a next season.
