We hear the show will be filming 33 episodes for TV One and its currently in pre-production now. Our sources also state that the show will move forward with actress Jennifer Freeman (best know as the daughter to Damon Wayans‘ character in ABC’s My Wife & Kids), as she will play the cousin of Ali’s character.
Now before we let your imagination run wild, there is no animosity with Ali or the producers of the show. It turns out that Ali signed a contract to be on 2nd Generation Wayans and moved forward with that show (which now looks like it may not be returning to BET) and her contract stipulates that she can not be on two shows on rival networks at the same time. With this being said, Love That Girl wasn’t even in production at that time, and as an actress Ali has to work so her decision in this matter makes a lot of sense.
Now since the producers are moving forward without her character for this season, you can expect that her character will be written back in if the show is picked up for next season. We have to admit, it will be interesting to see how this show plays out without her character.
