Rapper and actress Queen Latifah has decided to give it another go in the television world with a daytime talk show. The cover girl queen is now calling on her fellow A-list friends for support in her decision to host another TV talk show.

Queen Latifah has included top musicians like Alicia Keys and Lenny Krafitz to make  appearances on the “The Queen Latifah Show” that will debut September 16.

Latifah plans on including Hollywood’s most famous black power couple Will and Jada Smith in the production plans for the show.

Producer Corin Nelson says the Queen’s show will not feature much on politics, aiming at a more fresh and young audience. Pop culture and gossip will definitely be featured on the show. However, the production has already invited President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama to be apart of an episode.

Shooting for the show will be held at the Los Angeles-area Sony Studios.

This isn’t  the Queen’s first run around on television. The show, airing in September, will be the revival of her first talk show that aired in syndication from September 13 1999 to August 31 2001. The series was a mix of topics and included interviews with celebrities including Eve, Whoopi Goldberg, Ice Cube, Lauryn Hill, Denzel Washington and non-celebrities alike.

Congrats Queen!

    Why not? It worked for her “sister-in-arms”- Ellen DeGeneres and she is now “married” to another woman, seems to be dodging the backlash of being lesbian on a daytime talk show and is even award-winning to boot!!

    It seems that you have to now be gay, suspected gay, supportive of everything gay to host a talk show on most of the mainstream and cable networks!!! It will probably give the so-called “queen” a prime vehicle to discuss a plethora of “gay friendly” issues and to eventually make the ubiquitous “coming out” on her show so that she can live her “authentic life” as if most people who have followed her are not aware that she is homosexual in the first place.

    One caveat for the “queen” though: the “Midas touch” Anderson Cooper’s show was not so lucky and has been cancelled. Perhaps, he was a bit “overexposed” as he host Anderson Cooper 360 on CNN and is known for his “dangerous reporting” from warzones around the world. He just happens to prefer “sausages” over “eggs” and comes from a wealthy and famous family.

    Whew!! Before we know it, “straight people” will have to go “in the closet” and stage a “grand coming out” in order to be blessed by the powers-that-be in this culture. Who would have ever thought that being LGBT is now on par in some circles as if they are “the last coming of Christ” from the new and, of course, “Real One” – “Gay Bible.”

    Well, C’est La Vie in the new “S&G-Anything Goes” modern America!!!”

      are you doing the judging, or will you leave that to God to do?
