BET has finally confirmed what we’ve already suspected. ‘106 & Park’ co-hosts Paigion, Shorty Da Prince and Miss Mykie have all been replaced by fashion designer Angela Simmons. Simmons joins remaining host and rapper, Mr. 106 himself, Bow Wow.
The network made the official announcement on Friday confirming the departure of the former hosts. The statement reads:
106 & PARK” is undergoing exciting changes. Angela Simmons will continue to guest host until the end of the summer. Bow Wow aka “Mr. 106 & Park” will continue as the lead host; Miss. Mykie, Paigion and Shorty Da Prince will no longer remain on the show. BET Networks is happy to have worked with these bright, young stars and will continue to support them and their upcoming endeavors.
It’s just too bad these three weren’t able to make an official announcement of their own and say their fare wells.
However, we have to admit, the news did not come as a surprise. Having four hosts didn’t seem to go well with the show’s dynamic.
We also think pairing Bow Wow with his ex-girlfriend could only help considering 106 has a long history of partnering co-hosts who’ve been rumored to be romantically linked.
We wish the former hosts well in their future endeavors.
