Just when we thought BET could not make anymore bad programming decisions the network has announced it is cancelling Being Mary Jane after four seasons!

This comes as a shocker as the series, starring Gabrielle Union, has been met with critical acclaim and is easily the greatest original programming BET has ever created.

“Being Mary Jane has been a landmark series not only for BET, but for African American women around the world who saw themselves in Mary Jane, her family, friends and coworkers. From the captivating storytelling, to the richly complex characters, to the powerful issues tackled on the series, we remain immensely proud,” said Connie Orlando, EVP and Head of Programming, BET Networks. “We are grateful to the cast and creators of Being Mary Jane, who have worked tirelessly to bring this world to vivid life over the past 4 seasons. We also thank the many loyal viewers whose hearts and minds were captured every week, and kept Mary Jane trending worldwide. We look forward to closing out Mary Jane’s journey with a series finale that is sure to blow fans away!”

The character of Mary Jane Paul/Pauletta Patterson is definitely someone many people could relate to. Every family or group of friends has that one overachiever or person who serves as the glue. Gabrielle Union once described her role as Mary Jane as the best work she has done in her life and we have to agree. Sure, we are use to seeing her play the alpha female role often, but this time the character was layered with successes, triumphs, insecurities, and her own demons when it came to her love life. All we can say is Tuesday nights just will not be the same. Thus far we know Gabrielle has signed on for the series finale, there is no word on the rest of the cast. Maybe we will finally see Mary Jane walk down the aisle or have that baby she wants so badly.

The CW has found its Batwoman, who will appear in a DC crossover event of Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl in December and then likely again in her own standalone series.

Ruby Rose, the stunning scene-stealer from Orange Is the New Black, John Wick: Chapter 2and The Meg, has been cast as the caped crusader’s female contemporary.

What’s more, the character Batwoman will be openly lesbian, the first to lead a TV show.

“Rose will be playing the Kate Kane version of the character, who, armed with a passion for social justice and flair for speaking her mind, soars onto the streets of Gotham as Batwoman, an out lesbian and highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city’s criminal resurgence,” an overview from DC Comics reads.

“But don’t call her a hero yet—in a city desperate for a savior, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham’s symbol of hope.”

We have to say AGAIN we are here for this new Batwoman series and cannot wait for this year’s crossover event. Team Arrow, Team Flash, The Legends, Supergirl, and Black Lightning are finally getting some help from at least one of Gotham’s superheroes! What do you guys think of this casting news?

The confrontation ended with liberal Goldberg allegedly shouting, “F–k you, get the f–k out!” at President Trump supporter and Fox News host Pirro.

During the screaming match, Pirro told Goldberg, “I’ve done more for abused women than you will ever do,” we hear.

The trouble, sources told us, started before Pirro even went on-air to promote her new book, “Liars, Leakers, and Liberals: The Case Against the Anti-Trump Conspiracy” — when Pirro arrived at “The View” to learn that anti-Trump CNN contributor Ana Navarro was filling in for Joy Behar.

“When Jeanine arrived on set she was looking for a fight and refusing to be on with Ana, demanding [Ana] not be in the segment,” an insider said. “[Pirro] was yelling at [‘The View’] executive producer and her staff like, ‘You need to handle this.’”

Another source told us that Pirro “was upset that Ana was there because she wasn’t told until the last minute. Ana is 24-7 anti-Trump. Jeanine wasn’t yelling, but you could tell they felt like the segment was being hijacked by shoving in an anti-Fox, anti-Trump person.”

Navaro did appear in Pirro’s segments, and things came to a head on the ABC show when the “Justice with Judge Jeanine” host accused left-wing Goldberg of having “Trump Derangement Syndrome.”

Goldberg responded of Trump, “I have never seen anybody whip up such hate.”

It really sucks that Donald Trump can cause such chaos on a well-respected show. We are sure both ladies held their own, but this only serves as a sign of the times as politics have become more and more volatile.
