Exclusive! Queen Latifah: “Anyone Who Takes On A Talk Show Is Running The Gauntlet”

Published

on

Last week, the lovely and talented Queen Latifah confirmed via Facebook that her daytime talkshow, The Queen Latifah Show was being canceled. The news came as a shock for fans around the nation, but for Latifah, she was well aware that putting on a successful talk show was not an easy task.

“Anyone who takes on a talk show is running the gauntlet and taking a chance,” Latifah told HipHollywood exclusively just days before last week’s big announcement. “Many of them don’t work and some do. They are very challenging to create and to create in a fresh way and garner an audience.”

Queen, who is known to inspire and change the lives of people around the world, may be saying goodbye to daytime television, but the star has much more to conquer. “The people who have tuned in have been pretty loyal to the show and hopefully we get to keep building on that and introducing that to more people. In the meantime, I’ll do some movies and some music and keep juggling other balls.”

She added, “I’ve been very fortunate to have a great fan base whose allowed me to experiment and that’s been important to who I am as a person. I need to be able to do that.”

The QL Show will air original episodes until March on CBS, so be sure to tune in Monday-Friday at 2 p.m.

Tracee Ellis Ross Spills The Real Tea On ‘Black-ish’ Wage Demands + Deon Cole, Jenifer Lewis Weigh In

Published

Tracee Ellis Ross is unveiling the truth behind recent reports that she was demanding more money for her time spent on ABC’s Black-ish.

Just last week, The Hollywood Reporter suggested Tracy was in negotiations and asking for more for not only going into her fourth season on the hit show, but because her male co-host, Anthony Anderson, makes significantly more than she does.

The report also claimed that if she didn’t make any headway, she might step away and consider guest starring on other shows.

Over the weekend, Ellis addressed the reports and didn’t exactly deny the claims. In a lengthy statement shared on social media, Ross said that she “was in renegotiation, like many actors find themselves in during the fourth season of a successful show.”

She continued, “I wanted to be compensated in a way that matches my contribution to a show that I love for many reasons, including the opportunity it allows me to reshape what it is to be a fully realized black woman on TV.”

She did, however, confirm that claims there were threats are false. “I wish I could have been called by the reporter to confirm that,” she wrote.

Tracy’s statement falls right in line with what her co-stars, Deon Cole and Jenifer Lewis, explained to HipHollywood on Sunday night during the 2018 SAG Awards.

When asked about Ross’ desire to earn more money, Lewis said, “Tracee should have more money, you should have more money, every woman should have more money because we’ve been in the background too long. ”

Television’s favorite mom continued, “We’ve got grab her by the pussy in the White House and women are not standing for it anymore. Black-ish is a very important show, we are dealing with all the pressing issues of our time … This is the time to look it in the face and address it and come through the fire. Women are not taking it anymore.”

Deon also shut down rumors that Ross would be taking a back seat, telling us “There’s two sides to every story. Tracee is fine, everybody is fine, and everybody is getting paid. Everybody is eating. It’s all love I promise you.”
