Queen Latifah to Host a Daytime Talk Show

Queen Latifah.

Plenty of contenders are vying to be the daytime talk heir to Oprah Winfrey — Katie Couric, Bethenny Frankel, and Jeff Probst are all readying talk shows for next year — but now a new threat is looming: Queen Latifah. The Oscar-nominated performer announced today that she'll be partnering with Will Smith's Overbrook Entertainment to create her own syndicated talk show, but she'll sit out the current round of competitive development with the hopes of launching in fall 2013. Wendy Williams, you brought this on yourself.
