Didn’t we see this coming? Earlier in the week, I was talking to my friend, aspiring actor and model Dylan and we talked about 106 & Park. He knows that I always have the exclusives, so he asked me about those other chicks and that dude who were co-hosting 106 & Park. They have been missing for the past few weeks. It’s rumored that they’re on vacation, but that isn’t true. I heard that they only had a 6-months contract, which didn’t get renewed.
Lately socialite and entrepreneuress Angela Simmons has been co-hosting the show with her ex-boyfriend Bow Wow. The execs over at BET keeps bringing Angela back because they’re looking to make her a permanently co-host.
According creditable celebrity blog, The YBF, Angela might be replacing those other hosts. Below is an excerpt:
“Our source who works on the set of “106 & Park” tells us that last month when Angela Simmons did her first co-hosting stint, it was BET’s idea to bring her back (after she was a recent guest) to test out her co-hosting skills with Bow Wow. Allegedly, they wanted to see if ratings spiked while Angela, Bow’s ex, was on the show.
Things must have gone well, because she returned for the rest of the week. And has appeared a few times since then. And in the TV world, when you see a celeb turning up more than once on a talk show to “guest host,” it’s almost always a situation where they are being tested out for a possible new slot on the show.
And while we’ve barely seen Shorty, Mykie & P since last month, BET sent out a press release stating that celebs would be taking over as co-hosts with Bow all this week–from Angela to Adrienne Bailon to Draya Michele. Looks like everybody wants to be a co-host.
We reached out to couple Shawty & Paigion’s publicist to see what was going on, and have yet to receive a response. But their fans have been blowing up their instagrams asking where they are….and if Angela Simmons is taking their spot. They’ve also been Retweeting fans who are begging BET to bring them back.”
