QUICK QUOTES: BET On Firing ’106 & Park’ hosts Miss Mykie, Paigion, & Shorty Da Prince
BET is a trip! After putting Miss Mykie, Paigion, and Shorty Da Prince through a rigorous process to become the new hosts of “106 & Park,” BET added Bow Wow to the mix….kept him and fired all of them.
To add insult to injury, BET abruptly snatched Miss Mykie, Paigion, and Shorty Da Prince off of the show with no explanation to the fans and viewers of the show. Instead, they brought in a slew of celebrity co-hosts to accompany Bow Wow to distract folks. BET finally settled in on Bow Wow’s on-again-off-again HomieLoverFriend Angela Simmons as his co-host…for the summer.
BET has finally issued a statement regarding firing Miss Mykie, Paigion, and Shorty Da Prince, but it’s months late and several dollars short.
“106 & Park” is undergoing exciting changes. Angela Simmons will continue to guest host until the end of the summer. Bow Wow aka “Mr. 106 & Park” will continue as the lead host; Miss Mykie, Paigion and Shorty Da Prince will no longer remain on the show. BET Networks is happy to have worked with these bright, young stars and will continue to support them and their upcoming endeavors.
Oh well. The weren’t the first folks BET did dirty and they won’t be the last. I wish them well.
