BET Network's #1 countdown music video show, 106 & Park is ending its run after 14 years, the network announced on Twitter.com Nov. 14.
Hopefully transgender blogger B. Scott didn't pre-order that new Mercedes Benz (or any other luxury vehicle). It looks like he will not be coming into millions of dollars from that anti-discrimination lawsuit he filed against BET Network.
Gossip tabloid TMZ reports Scott lost his lawsuit today.
BET hired Scott as a fashion reporter during the 2013 BET Awards last summer. But after Scott showed up tardy for his hosting gig, BET's Stephen Hill reportedly ordered Scott to change into attire more suitable for a masculine male host.
In a post published on his blog, Scott said he was “disheartened” by BET’s attempts to tone down his flamboyant personality.
I'm disappointed with the direction BET has taken this show. The Game is no longer funny and the plot lines reek of desperation. BET needs new writers ASAP. Watch the full episode after the break.
Last night, BET premiered Season 7 of its popular scripted series The Game. Last season's cast members return, including our favorite Brandy Norwood (Chardonnay) and Wendy Raquel Robinson who plays the annoying, but endearing Tasha Mack. Tasha confused her pregnancy symptoms for the onset of menopause. It will be fun to watch how the middle aged seductress handles her high risk pregnancy.
Unfortunately, the season premiere was a bit of let down. The character most of us tuned in to see -- Kelly Pitts, played by Brittany Daniel (red dress) -- was a no show.
Watch the full video after the break.

In last night's episode of BET's Being Mary Jane, news anchor Mary Jane Paul's old flame David Paulk (played by Stephen Bishop) comes back into her life. Love addict Mary Jane (played by Gabrielle Union) is struggling to break her addiction on Andre Daniels, a married man (played by Omari Hardwick).
But David (pictured above with Mary Jane) is contending with his own Love addiction battle. David needs to see Mary Jane one more time to get her out of his system and to kick his emotional dependency on her once and for all.
Last night's episode of BET's hit scripted series Being Mary Jane sparked serious online debates about the manner in which Andre (Omari Hardwick)'s wife serviced him in bed. In a recent episode, Andre, who is cheating on his wife, Avery Daniels (Robinne Lee), with Mary Jane (Gabrielle Union), blamed his cheating on the fact that his side piece performs fellatio on him and his wife doesn't.
So in last night's episode, Andre's wife attempts to give him head while propping her head on a pillow -- an act which only angers Andre, and sends him running back to Mary Jane.
Last night's episode of BET's original scripted TV series Being Mary Jane starring Gabrielle Union set Twitter.com on fire. The pilot drew 4 million viewers last May, and the season re-launch has gained respectable numbers so far. Both male and female viewers are drawn to Union's strong portrayal of news anchor Mary Jane Paul, who seems to have it all. But she has flaws that the average viewer can relate to. Some critics voice their disappointment with Mary Jane's weakness for married men. They question why Mary Jane can't date single men like the sluts in TV's Sex And The City.
This week's re-launch of Gabrielle Union's scripted TV series Being Mary Jane failed to surpass the number of viewers who tuned in to see the much-hyped pilot episode last May.
"Beautifully flawed" Mary Jane (Gabrielle Union) continues to juggle her career and a married man in last night's episode of BET's hit scripted TV series Being Mary Jane.
Gorgeous actress Gabrielle Union hosted BET Network's wrap party for her much-anticipated TV series Being Mary Jane in Atlanta last night. The series pilot which aired in July was a hit with critics and viewers alike. The series was created by Mara Brock Akil ("Girlfriends"), and stars Tika Sumpter and Omari Hardwick. The first series premieres on January 7, 2014.

BET Network will probably never hire celebrity blogger B. Scott to host another red carpet event. The flamboyant, openly gay blogger and media personality slapped the entertainment network with a lawsuit for forcing him to wear men's clothing.
How dare BET demand that a contract employee dress appropriately on their set?
The TV movie "Being Mary Jane," starring Gabrielle Union and Omari Hardwick, aired last night on BET Network. Union, 40, plays a successful TV news anchor who believes her job, her salary and her material possessions are her biggest achievements in life. But she fails at maintaining a stable relationship with a man. Like most high achievers, Mary Jane believes a man is the missing piece of her puzzle and that she deserves a man to make her life complete.
Openly gay celebrity blogger B. Scott is still fuming after being kicked off the BET Awards red carpet for dressing like a woman.
In a post on his blog, Scott said BET asked him to be the fashion correspondent for the Style Stage during the "106 and Park" Pre-Show as part of the 2013 BET Awards live telecast on Sunday. But Scott said the organizers objected to his feminine attire and "physically" dragged him off the red carpet forcing him to change out of his Prada pumps into more manly shoes.
BET apologized on Monday, but Scott, who runs the popular Love B. Scott blog, rejected the "half hearted" apology.
"I want a real apology from BET. This was a not a mutual misunderstanding or miscommunication. I pride myself on being very professional," he said in an interview Tuesday.
Actress Gabrielle Union said her new role in BET's "Being Mary Jane" is "better than 'Scandal'" -- the role she lost to actress Kerry Washington. In a recent interview to promote 'Mary Jane,' Union suggested that the 'Scandal' role was not up to her usual standards.
“I didn’t get ‘Scandal,’ but I got something better — which is my own show,” Union said. “It’s all about building a legacy. This new opportunity is something I feel that can grow.”
While her words may sound like sour grapes, Union is grateful for Washington's success in 'Scandal' because it means more work for black actresses like her.
