In June, BET’s hit show The Game will premiere its ninth and final season. After a whole host of cast shake-ups and storyline mixups, one constant presence throughout the show’s run has been actressWendy Raquel Robinson. She plays Tasha Mack on the show, the mother of football star Malik Wright (Hosea Chanchez) and the sassy businesswoman trying to build her management company from the ground up. After all these years and all those episodes, Robinson will miss the series, and most importantly, she will miss her cast members, many of which she says she’s built a lifelong bond with. What she won’t miss though, is the criticism the show has received over the years. After starting strong on The CW only to be canceled and revived by BET, many fans of the show felt that once it came to the network, the quality of the program decreased. Premiering on BET with an unusual leap forward in time, from there, the storyline included too many changes and wild plot twists for some original viewers. Many had been complaining about the series since it returned in 2011, and things only got worse when it decided to move forward without original lead cast members Tia Mowry and Pooch Hall. Robinson admits that such criticism was often tough to deal with and at the end of the day, she just wanted to do the job she was hired to do.
