Talk Show Flashback: The Queen Latifah Show


There was a time in the 80s and 90s where if a celebrity could hold a microphone, they could host a daytime talk show (or at least try).

Let's continue our walk down memory lane . . . or talk show lane:

Did you watch?
I am a big fan of the multi-talented Queen Latifah. But I don't remember ever watching her show. You?

Do I remember watching the show?
Hell, I don't remember there BEING a show.

...but nah, even if I knew, I probably wouldn't have watched.

I too am a Queen Latifah fan. I had her first album way back when... “I Order You to Dance for Me”. I sort of recall that she had a show but not really. Saw her on the Ellen show yesterday, does that count? Besides I always suspected that she is of the same sex persuasion...

I can't specifically remember her show, but I sure do like her. I especially loved her in "Chicago". I just wish she'd come out already!

For some reason the theme song to Living Single is stuck in my head.

Wow, I had no idea she had a talk show!

LOVE the Queen, but I never saw the show. I can remember her back in the day singing "U-N-I-T-Y" but I really fell for her after seeing her in the movie rendition of "Chicago"...

Why do you think she won't come out? Its not like it would be shocking for anyone who's a fan of hers.

Nope, never saw it.

I did however catch an episode of former Cosby kid, Tempest Bledsoe's show.

How's that for scary?

I do love her. I never saw her show, though. I'll bet it was interesting, just for her alone.

I watched it a few times. It was just formulaic like the rest of them - Jenny Jones, Ricki Lake, etc. I remember she had some of her guests shoot hoops.

Do you remember the Tempest Bledsoe talkshow? Gaawd, that was painful to watch, as she tried desperately to carry her popularity from the Cosby Show over to daytime talk.

I do remember coming across it while looking for cartoons on basic tv... Lmao I was 12

TMoss said...

LOL. I actually did watch this. I also watched "Tempestt". LOL. Then again, I am a hardcore "Cosby Show" fan so that stands to reason.
