Dish o' the DayALL OF US (EXCEPT ELISE NEAL)
Some major shake-ups just happened at UPN. Last week, news was leaked that actressElise Neal would not be returning to her starring role as "Tia Jewel" on the struggling sitcom 'All of Us.' Hollywood had been buzzing for weeks that 'All of Us' would likely be cancelled, and most were shocked when it was announced the sitcom would get a third season.
Elise Neal will be leaving UPN's 'All of Us,' while Flex Alexander will play a much lesser role on 'One on One,' a show he co-created.
"The only reason that the show is coming back is because [executive producer] Will Smith asked the top executives at UPN to give the show another go," a source at the network told BV Buzz. "Otherwise, 'All of Us' would have ended this past May.As we enter the critical third year of 'All of Us' and a new move to Monday nights at 8:30PM this fall, there was a creative decision to focus on the relationship of divorced parents "Robert" [played by Smith's real life best friend Duane Martin] and "Neesee" [played by LisaRaye Mcoy] and how they deal with raising a son, which draws them together; while exploring separate personal lives, which pulls them apart. Elise Neal has been outstanding as "Tia Jewel" and we thank her for her tremendous contribution to the show."
A SHOWSTOPPER SURPRISE AT THE BET AWARDS
BET's Executive Vice President for Music and Entertainment Programming, Stephen Hill, has hyped up the show by saying what happens at 8PM will be the defining moment of the show. Many have speculated that the top-secret performance will be Michael Jackson and his brothers, but a source says the network has something else in store.
