Last month, Game talked about what fans can expect from his upcoming show.
"This is the reality show that you will get as close to the Playboy Channel [as possible]. I believe in humping and doing all types of sexual activities on the show, that's just it," Game said in an interview with Jenny Boom Boom. "It goes way deeper than [the engagement issues]. It's heartache, pain, tears, family, it's all in there." ("Jenny Boom Boom TV")
He also revealed how the financial gain from doing a reality show ultimately pushed him to green light the opportunity.
"We got a good lil' deal, we got d*mn near a mil, so that's what really made me do it, it's that wifey kept complaining about, you know, she's a school teacher, she makes a good six figures but she wanted some more money, man, so she talked me into doing it and she got her money and didn't really care about my end. She kept most of the money and left me with about $100 grand. She got about $900 [thousand]. So yeah, that's how it happened." ("Jenny Boom Boom TV")
In late July, reports of the reality show getting put back on hit the Internet.
Talk about a roller coaster of emotion -- TMZ has learned, The Game's wedding is BACK ON ... despite being canceled just last week. As we reported, Game's fiancee Tiffney Cambridge pulled the plug on the wedding last Thursday -- and the rapper said it was all his fault, tweeting, "The rumors are TRUE. The wedding is OFF. It's not her fault, it's mine! She's a GREAT woman." But now, we're told the couple is giving things another shot and has decided to resume their wedding plans. According to sources, the new wedding date is in August. As for the reality show that was supposed to cover the nuptials -- we're told that's back on too. (TMZ)
