Now see, this we can get behind! She has the personality of Oprah, the spunk of Wendy Williams and the energy of Ellen DeGeneres!

In other words: she's perfect!

Queen Latifah is turning back the clock and giving a another stab at having a talk show. Her first attempt with The Queen Latifah Show only lasted two seasons, but this time around, she might just have the backing to make it work. Her new show is slated to go up in the fall of 2013, with the help of co-producers Will Smith, James Lassiter’s Overbrook Entertainment and Sony Pictures Television. Latifah will also act as executive producer along with Overbrook’s Lassiter, Will and Jada Pinkett Smith.

The fact that the show isn't getting fast-tracked for next fall is actually a good thing, if you ask us. It means that the team - a dream team really - is taking their time to really develop the show, perhaps look at Queen's last talk show and see what went wrong. If they approach this right, which we think they will, this may very well be a big hit for all.

But no stress if it doesn't pan out either. Seriously, Queen has such a career, if another talk show flops, we know she'll land on her feet regardless.

    Sounds like a winner
    Bet Big O is kicking herself for not having gotten Queen Latifah,
    and instead got Quenn of the Pig People (Rosie)

    Good luck Queen Latifah! Her movies always make me laugh.

    Man they let anti-semites do a lot of things.

    Looks as though the morning daytime circuit is becoming the lesbian stomping ground.

    love the Queen-
    wonder if she will address the lesbian thing or not?
    she should realize that she is just so likeable that it really doesn't matter to us!
    so basically it's a non-issue

    Im sick of all the talk shows and Rosie's show is totally unwatchable - But The Queen? I'll watch!!

    Why is it that only lesbian women seem to be able to get daytime shows? I hope she finally puts all the rumors to rest. Nobody cares and we'll still watch her show either way!
