‘The Gossip Game’ Not Renewed for Second Season

Mona Scott Young has the midas touch when it comes to reality television, but The Gossip Game may have just stopped her winning streak. It was confirmed by cast member Vivian Billings that the New York City-based series has not been renewed for a second season. Citing behind the scenes drama and marketing issues as the reasons, the gossip blogger offered up her own theories in a lengthy blog post.

“I’m not sure what the reasoning was behind the cancellation, but I will say this. There was a lot going on behind the scenes that affected our show. For starters, our original start time was 9pm and was pushed back to 9:30 because T.I.’s “A Family Hustle” was a family show and coming on at 10′oclock while most families are getting ready for bed was #NOBueno,” she wrote.

“Then we were pushed back to 11pm (which I never understood why that happened) because “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” was coming back to our TV screens and they HAD to repeat that show twice along with T.I.’s show before they even aired our show. Hence, our show never even had a chance. So it was no surprise to me that our show got canned, she admits. ”But not one to worry, I’ve got some other things in the works so I know I’ll be straight.”

The Gossip Game followed seven career women working in entertainment media. Other cast members included Power 105.1’s Angela Yee, Kay Foxx, Sharon Carpenter, JasFly, Ms. Drama and Kim Osorio.
