Tika Sumpter Shows Esquire Her "Place"

As talented as she is striking, former One Life to Live star Tika Sumpter's stock is rising in Hollywood on par with U.S. gasoline prices. Sumpter, who has recurring roles on both The CW's Gossip Girl and BET's record-breaking The Game, took a little time out of her busy schedule to share her place with Esquire for their Me In My Place photo essay collection.  Wouldn't it be awesome if BET did a cable soap starring Sumpter, Debbi Morgan, Darnell Williams and Victoria Rowell? Ah, the possibilities. Click here to see more!

I am so tired of these netlets using "urban" shows to stay afloat during their early years, then booting them all to the curb as soon as they have a string of copy cat teen soaps. Our girl Natasha over at first reported The CW planned to cancel The Game as well as Chris Rock's critically acclaimed autobiographical sitcom Everybody Loves Chris

Was Tammy Lauren on The Game?

Was that Tammy Lauren (Maggie Sullivan, The Young and the Restless) on Friday's The Game? Friday night before the Superbowl was a slow night on TV so as I was flipping channels I spotted a familiar face on The CW's The Game.
