Vanessa Williams played the wickedly delicious Wilhelmina Slater on Ugly Betty. Then she took residence in ABC’s hellish drama 666 Park Avenue. It appears the 52-year-old actress can’t get enough of all things evil.

Williams joins VH1’s forthcoming series, titled Satan’s Sisters. The hour-long drama is from Star Jones and based on her 2011 roman à clef of the same name. It follows five female hosts of a daytime talk show titled The Lunch Hour which is “a long-running, popular ladies’ talk show in which alliances are forged, careers are made, and bridges are burned,” according to the network’s official release.

Deadline reports Vanessa will play the show’s creator and host, Maxine. She’s described as “a formidable, powerful and decisive woman who fears she’s being put out to pasture.”

This future guilty pleasure just got a whole lot better. Love Williams and will definitely check out Satan’s Sisters. It sucks we’ll have to wait til 2017 though. Does the show interest you? Sound off below.

VH1 Orders Drama Based On The View From Star Jones

I’m surprised it took this long for this to come to fruition. The drama and shenanigans surrounding The View was tailor-made for a series.

VH1 announced it’s developing a new show titled Satan’s Sisters, based on Star Jones’ 2011 novel of the same name. The hour-long show follows five female hosts who work on a popular fictional show called The Lunch Hour where “alliances are forged, careers are made, and bridges are burned,” according to the official release. Sounds familiar, right?

Jones, a former legal analyst and lawyer, was one of the original hosts on the ABC chatfest. She sat at the table for nine seasons before unceremoniously dumped. Let’s just say there’s no love lost there. Read what Star has to say about her new show below.

It’s common knowledge that Season 18 of The View has been one hot mess despite being touted initially as a rebuilding one. Producers are starting from scratch and also looking to the past for Season 19.

Candace Cameron Bure, Paula Faris, Michelle Collins and Raven-Symone have all been added to join Whoopi Goldberg as co-hosts. In a surprising twist, a former panelist is being brought back to the mix.

Joy Behar who appeared on the show from Seasons 1-16 is returning to the show. YOWZA!!! Unlike Sherri Shepherd who is also returning but only as a contributor, Behar will be a full-fledged co-host. Check out the 72-year-old’s statement below about her homecoming.

Did you watch the debut of I Am Cait on E!? I’ve never watched an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians or any of their multiple spinoffs, but I did tune in last night. It appears that millions did as well. Though the official numbers won’t be released until Tuesday, early estimates project roughly 3 million watched.

A few of those who checked it out were the ladies of The View. During the Hot Topics segment, Raven-Symone shared her thoughts on Caitlyn Jenner and her new role as a LGBT community leader. The outspoken co-host thinks what Jenner is doing for the transgender community is ‘wonderful‘ but feels she’s moving ‘too fast.’

Watch Raven explain her stance more below. This is exactly why producers hired her. The former Disney star will no doubt court controversy with her statements. When Candice Cameron-Bure joins, it’s going to be fireworks show everyday.

The View Reportedly Finds Two New Panelists

Season 18 of The View was a rebuilding one. The veteran daytime chatfest moved into a new studio and overhauled the panel, leaving Whoopi Goldberg as the sole returnee. Fast forward to Season 19, and once again the Ghost actress is the last woman standing. Rosie Perez, Rosie O’Donnell and Nicole Wallace just didn’t work out.

The View has already announced Michelle Collins and Ravyen-Symone as permanent co-panelists moving forward. It appears producers have found two more women to usher in yet another new era for the once watercooler show.

Not surprisingly, Candace Cameron Bure is poised to become one of the new co-hosts. She easily fills the resident conservative SLASH religious spot. She’s guest hosted a handful of times and already butted heads with Raven. Did you see their heated debate about the bakery that wouldn’t bake a wedding cake for a lesbian couple? Talk about tense. These two will undoubtedly bring plenty of fireworks with their opposing viewpoints.

Another Rosie has bit the dust. Just six months after joining the panel, Rosie Perez is leaving The View. The White Man Can’t Jump actress is the second panelist to leave this season, following in Rosie O’Donnell’s footsteps.

O’Donnell and Perez were added, along with Nicole Wallace, as part of a major overhaul of the long-running daytime show this year. It appears more huge changes are in store for Season 19. Raven-Symoné was recently hired as a permanent host and it is expected frequent stand-in, comedian Michelle Collins, will be added as well.

Executive Producer Bill Wolff broke the news today in an email sent out to the staff. Read it below.

A few weeks ago, rumors surfaced Rosie Perez was leaving The View. As it turns out, it was a different Rosie jumping ship. Over the weekend, it was revealed that O’Donnell was once again leaving the ABC daytime chatfest after a brief return.

Viewers who tuned in to Monday’s episode hoping to hear the truth from the proverbial horse’s mouth were sadly disappointed. There was nary a mention of it on the show. The 52-year-old took to YouTube to reveal the exact reasons.

Pretty much, it’s a combination of splitting with her wife Michelle Rounds and taking care of her health after surviving a major heart attack years ago. Rosie’s final episode (until she returns again) airs this Friday. Check out her YouTube clip below.

Sharon Osbourne Trashes The View

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Sometimes I like the Osbourne family and then one of them pulls a stunt like this and… you know.

When Lady Gaga tried to squash her feud with Kelly Osbourne by giving a peace offering in the form of a birthday cake via Sharon, Kelly tweeted a few harsh words accusing Gaga of being disingenuous. I thought it was completely rude and ungracious for Kelly not to accept Gaga’s apology.

They say “sorry” is the hardest word to say, so when anyone offers an apology, I try to accept it and move on. Sharon felt the same way and recently commented on her daughter’s former feud by saying, “You know what, life is way too short.” Based on her behavior on The Arsenio Hall Show, it looks life’s not too short to start a feud.

During an interview with her The Talk co-hosts, Sharon had a few not so choice words regarding the ladies of The View. It all began when Hall asked the ladies what the difference between the two shows were. Julie Chen responded politely by stating their show doesn’t cover politics. Osbourne gulped down her red solo cup and interrupted, “Cut to the chase. Stop being polite. Cut to the f***ing chase.” She continued, “This is the situation. Barbara, idolize her, divine, she is superhuman, I love, but the rest can go f*** themselves.”

I agree that The Talk is better than The View currently but have some class girl. If it wasn’t for The View, I’m sure you guys wouldn’t be around. In addition, I think Sharon is the weakest link on the panel. She can go in my opinion. Watch her rant below.
