Just last month Pooch Hall was cut from BET's The Game. Now he's ready to come back.
Here's why we're having a double shot of espresso this morning:
- Could Pooch Hall be returning to BET's The Game? He's certainly working to make it happen. Hall told The Breakfast Club, "I can't say what's going on with BET, but Pooch Hall is ready. I'm just going to tell the fans [to] have faith. It's being worked out. I want to come back and don't be surprised if I do come back." Both Hall and Tia Mowry were unexpectedly let go last month.

- Dr. Conrad Murray, the man convicted of killing Michael Jackson, says he's dying in jail. According to reports Murray's health is declining and he fears he may not make it out of alive. So in turn, he's asking an L.A. judge to remove him from county jail and send him to prison where he can receive better treatment and proper medical care. [TMZ]
- Usher revealed this week that he had planned to collaborate with Amy Winehouse. He told MTV, "We met and we talked about it for a moment when I saw her. There were a few conversations that took place, but we never quite made it to it… I would have loved it," he said. [TGJ]
