There’s about to be a new Queen of daytime talk: Oscar-nominated actress/singer Queen Latifah will be the host of her very own syndicated talk show.

The yet-to-be-titled show — which will be produced by Latifah’s Flavor Unit Entertainment (she’ll serve as executive producer alongside co-founder Shakim Compere), James Lassiter, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith’s Overbrook Entertainment (Overbook’s Miguel Melendez will also executive produce), and Sony Pictures Television — is being developed for fall 2013. Compere said in a statement regarding the project, “We’ve had a long and successful history both personally and professionally with Overbrook’s Miguel, JL, Jada and Will. We share a common vision and have been wanting to collaborate for quite some time. The talk show is the perfect project to work on together.”

Of course, this won’t be the star’s first foray into hosting a talk show, as her gabfest The Queen Latifah Show, ran in syndication from 1999 to 2001.

    There’s too many talk shows on now. But I am a fan of hers. She’s a great actress and singer! Makes me wonder why she would want to do a talk show? She’s too talented for that!

      I agree with you Amy. But I will watch it because its her.

      I LOVE Queen Latifah’s make-up line but if amazes me how these star’s handlers convinces them they’re God’s gift to the entertainment world. I’m actually starting to get tired of The View (so we don’t need another mouth piece show) but I enjoy Rosie (she’s VERY funny). It’s sad how so many MORE talented people get passed over for NAMES??? To those naive folks US black folks pulled Queen out of the closet years ago. It’s really none of our biz That’s why I got so mad Ellen felt the need to ruin her GREAT show focusing on her personal issues (need to come out to Oprah).

    She did one before. Fail!

  • Holly

    You guys are too stupid to remember that she did this before. And failed. Maybe you will have forgotten by now? God, they have money to burn these days.

    I can’t be too mad at at African American’s on television……But, really?!?!? Why, Latifah…. Why a talk show? What happened to to the dashiki wearing, U-N-I-T-Y, Latifah? Oh boy, it’s definitely 2012.

    She sells a line of clothes on HSN but doesn’t come across as genuine and down to earth, she does the hard sell. She has a few years to work on being “genuine.” Good luck with that.

    I adore her! I can’t wait for her next movie, whatever it might be. She’s so fabulous. I’ll totally watch her show.
