'Downton Abbey' and Other Television Shows Diddy Isn't Joining
The rumor was started by Diddy himself, who tweeted the following:
MY BIG NEWS: So happy to announce that Im a series regular on DOWNTON ABBEY-my favorite show+i'll be debuting a sneak peek tonight 12am PST!Downton Abbey has announced that the series' fourth season will feature its first black cast member. But, like squares and rectangles, all Diddys are black people, but not all black people are Diddys. Diddy's tweet was quickly denied by a "Masterpiece" representative at Boston's PBS station WGBH who said, "very funny, but it's simply not true."

No matter what Diddy's Twitter says, here are some other shows Diddy isn't joining:
How I Met Your MotherAfter eight long seasons, How I Met Your Mother finally revealed the titular mother of Josh Radnor's character's children this week. But, no, it was not Diddy. It was Cristin Milioti, who previously starred in the Broadway show Once and was nominated for a Tony. Sorry, Diddy.
Sister, SisterOne of the earliest believers in Diddy's fake announcement was Sister, Sister star Jackée Harry.
Yall Gon' Learn Today: My Boothang, @iamdiddy, Is Now A Series Regular On #DowntonAbbey!Wrong again, Jackée.

Diddy will also not be traveling back to 1999 to be revealed as the secret third sister to Tia and Tamara Mowry in the series finale of The WB classic. Sorry, Diddy.
Making the Band: Danity Kane ReunionIt was announced this week that Danity Kane -- which was created on the third season of Making the Band -- will be reuniting soon. Diddy, however, wasn't invited. "Who's that," was Aubrey O'Day's response when asked about the group's former mentor.
Sorry, Diddy. Better luck next time.
