Following the shocking departures of Tia Mowry and Pooch Hall from hit BET series ‘The Game’, it appears the show’s producers are on the prowl for replacements for Derwin and Melanie.

Peep the following via Zap It:

“The Game”: With Tia Mowry leaving the show, producers are looking for a new female actress to join the cast in the regular role of Kiera, a 20-year-old former child star who has been in the spotlight since she was five years old and starring on a “Cosby” style sitcom. According to the casting call, she’s bright and charming, but struggling into transitioning into a grown-up career.

“The Game” — again: Kiera isn’t the only newbie in town! Another series regular will be hired to play Bryce “The Blueprint” Westbook – a #1, Ivy League draft pick running back who breaks every “dumb athlete” stereotype. He’s not only got a Heisman Trophy, but he’s usually the smartest guy in the room — which sets his new teammates on edge.

It was set to mark her introduction to the world of television.

However, despite promising the launch of her very own ‘fashion show’ on the UK‘s Sky Living, Rihanna has pulled out the project- following claims her lifestyle is affecting her health.

Digital Spy reports:

“She has been hitting it hard for months. She smokes, drinks and parties hard on top of work commitments”.

During her stay in the UK, Rihanna was also scheduled to play Radio 1’s Hackney Weekend and headline next month’s Wireless festival. It is currently unknown if these gigs are also cancelled.

This sure to come as bad news for Girls Aloud star Nicola Roberts who had been billed as the show’s host, guiding its contestants through weekly challenges.

Since her dismissal from the X Factor , Cheryl Cole ‘nation’s sweetheart’ gimmick has-unfortunately for her- become all too easy to see through.

Indeed, if comments made on her performances on ‘The Voice UK’ and the Queen’s ‘Jubilee concert’ are anything to go by, the issue of Cheryl’s talent- and not aesthetic as had previously been the case- has taken centre stage, forcing many to question her validity as a singer.

Now she has hit back at these criticisms, insisting that she does perform her vocals live.
