What We’re Watching This Week! Daytime Divas on VH1!By Zaire Prosper | June 5, 2017 | Entertainment
MONDAY, June 5
Daytime Divas SERIES PREMIERE (10 p.m., VH1) Move over Empire. Take a seat Greys Anatomy; there’s a new show in town and it’s DivaGal approved. With a strong and undeniably funny cast led by Vanessa Williams and Tichina Arnold this show really has every element to keep us watching. Daytime Divas is adapted from Star Jones‘ novel Satan’s Sisters, naturally inspired by her years on The View, and focuses on the behind-the-scenes drama on The Lunch Hour, a popular talk show. Vanessa Williams plays Maxine Robinson, The Lunch Hour‘s creator and lead host. She’s joined by an array of characters who may seem all too familiar if you’ve watched a daytime talk show or two. There’s Mo played by Tichina Arnold, she’s a comic with a “no care” attitude. There’s Heather, played by Fiona Gubelmann, who is the token Christian conservative; sounds familiar? There’s Nina played my Camille Guaty, who is the actual investigative journalist. And then there’s Kibby played by Chloe Bridges, a former child star and recovering addict. We got to catch the first episode and let’s just say Daytime Divas is brimming with soap opera caliber drama, sex scenes and a little dash of hot fashions. The first episode serves up an affair, a drug problem, a threesome, a secret relationship and two different instances of blackmail – it’s like a bad day in high school! Don’t take it too seriously because it’s meant to be light and fun … and it is!
