Tyrese Gibson announced on Monday (Aug. 1) that he and Rev Run will not be back on OWN for a second season of their talk show, “It’s Not You, It’s Men.”

The singer/actor took to Instagram to share the news with his followers, in addition to revealing the advice Oprah Winfrey gave him following news of the show’s cancellation.

“Think like a KING, a KING is not afraid to fail. Failure is another steppingstone to greatness,” Winfrey is quoted as telling the “Fast & Furious” star. Check out his IG post below.

Gibson didn’t explain why the show was cancelled, but did say that he’s currently looking into having “It’s Not You, It’s Men” placed on Netflix.

  1. I didn’t like the show. I think it could have had great potential WITHOUT Tyrese. I heard him on TJMS. He made a remark that women share too much personal info on the first date. In the same breath he says it’s ok to have sex on the first date. Clearly he doesn’t have enough respect for a woman to get to know her before sleeping with her…how can we take advice from someone like that???

    I watched the show and I feel Tyrese “immaturity” symbolized how a lot of younger and older men think (wasn’t that the point of the show). I didn’t have to agree with what was said by either men. To me it was a show that gave viewers the opportunity to hear different views. Hopefully, Netflix pick it up and life goes on. I wonder how many of us had it right at 37 years old – I know I didn’t. With age comes wisdom.

    Alecia and Special I agree with you both. I enjoyed the show and watched it faithfully however Tyrese was definitely immature and his attempts at trying to get the most attention was extremely childish. I believe Oprah’s advise was eloquently stated and hopefully he’ll take heed….however it seems he won’t since he thought nothing about posting on social media SMH when will they learn!

    The show had potential but Tyrese was like an attention seeking 2year old who wouldn’t shut up and didn’t know jack about life. Tyrese shup up and listen to Rev Run you might learn something. People seek sensible discussions not Tyrese lack of experience and juvenile behavior

      Alecia I co-sign on that. While I like Tyrese, I do believe his life experiences along with his immaturity lacked the substance needed to having meaning dialogues with Rev. Run. It was a little childish. But I did think the show itself is a good platform for sex and relationship, maybe OWN is not the place, NETFLIX might be the ticket. Good luck to them, I like both guys.

  5. I thought it was good, they brought out some interesting points about dating, marriage, divorce, sex. Sorry to see it go.
