The new VH1 series Daytime Divas is set to premiere on Bravo in Canada on Monday, June 5, at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT.
Inspired by former The View co-host Star Jones’ book “Satan’s Sisters,” Daytime Divas is about a fictional television talk show “The Lunch Hour,” where five women gather around the table to discuss life, love, politics, and juicy gossip — but behind the scenes, things get even juicier in a backstage world filled with power struggles, fits, and steamy affairs.
The show stars Vanessa Williams (Ugly Betty) as Maxine, the creator/host of “The Lunch Hour,” along with Camille Guaty (Las Vegas) as Nina, Tichina Arnold (Survivor’s Remorse) as Mo, Chloe Bridges (The Carrie Diaries) as Kibby, and Fiona Gubelmann (Wilfred) as Heather. Hit The Floor’s McKinley Freeman will play Maxine’s son Shawn, who is a producer of “The Lunch Hour.” 3rd Rock from the Sun’s Kristen Johnston will play Anna, Maxine’s former assistant who is now the editor-in-chief of a magazine that intends to expose the truth behind the talk show.
The first season will also have appearances by Pattie LaBelle, Debby Ryan, Norm Lewis, La La Anthony, Tasha Smith, Rob Estes, Scott Evans, Richard T. Jones, Tamera Mowry. Also be on the lookout for cameo appearances by Star Jones, Joy Behar and Kelly Osbourne.
