Two decades after her “American Idol” appearance, Grammy- and Oscar-winning Jennifer Hudson returns to television this fall to host “The Jennifer Hudson Show,” an hour-long syndicated talk show on Fox television channels.

“I’ve been through so much in my life; I’ve seen the highest of highs, the lowest of lows, and pretty much everything in between, but like my mom always told me, “Once you think you’ve seen it all, lives on,” the most-said the “American Idol” winner and “The Voice” coach in a statement.

“People from all over the world have been part of my journey since the beginning – 20 years ago – and I’m so ready to join their journey as we sit down and talk about the things that inspire and move us all,” Hudson , 40, added.

“I’ve always loved people and can’t wait to connect on a deeper level and allow audiences to see the different sides of who I am, the human being, in return. And I couldn’t be more excited to do it alongside this incredible team. We’re going to have fun and shake things up a bit!

It’s a big week for the star, who also won the highest honor for Artist of the Year at the 53rd NAACP Image Awards, which spotlight the works of artists and writers of color. Hudson memorably stepped in to sing a tribute to late music titan Whitney Houston at the 2012 Grammy Awards and was hand-picked by soul queen Aretha Franklin to play her in the year’s biopic “Respect.” last after seeing Hudson’s Oscar-winning turn in 2006. “Dream Girls.”

The “lowest of lows” Hudson refers to in his initial statement likely includes the family tragedy involving the murder of his mother, brother and nephew in a 2008 home invasion.

“The Jennifer Hudson Show” will be produced in Los Angeles by Warner Bros. Television and Telepictures.

Telepictures produced the outgoing “Ellen DeGeneres Show,” and that show’s executive producers, Andy Lassner and Mary Connelly, were the showrunners of Hudson’s test show, which she shot last fall on the stage of DeGeneres, according to Variety. Warner Bros. purchased Hudson’s program from several station groups since, and Fox won the bid.

The show also reunites the powerhouse singer with Mike Darnell, the president of unscripted and alternative television at Warner Bros. Prior to that, Darnell oversaw the “American Idol” franchise at Fox when Hudson was a Season 3 runner-up in 2004 and launched his multi-hyphenate career. .

“I knew Jennifer was a force to be reckoned with from the moment I met her almost 20 years ago,” Darnell said in a statement. “From her Grammy-winning music career to her Oscar-winning acting career, Jennifer’s incredible talent, big heart and authenticity shines through in everything she does. I’m thrilled to work with her on this new role. He’s a natural person and I know the public will welcome him into their home every day.

They also seem to have a lot riding on Hudson. Acknowledging that the TV syndication industry is going through a sea change with the rise and dominance of streamers, Fox TV’s executive vice president of programming Frank Cicha described Hudson as a “power player” who will reinvigorate talk shows. -shows by creating a brand that stimulates audiences.

Hudson’s show will air through purchasing Fox TV stations and will also launch on Hearst Television, with other station groups representing more than 60% of the country, Warner Bros. said. TV.

Whether she was declaring Beyoncé inarticulate or voicing her concerns about Tabitha Brown’s marriage, Williams had no fear of angering Beyhive or causing viral clapbacks. (“Wendy, how much pain you must be feeling to feel this. Honey, I’m so sorry,” Brown replied, in what became a meme bringing together the shadow in earnest.) Williams was sleazy and ridiculous, but there also had more subtle moments that captured why she was good at her job and understood pop culture.

She clearly watched the shows she was talking about and knew how to make good television. For example, no one else would refer The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice of being jealous of her sister-in-law opposite, knowing full well that the wrong brand of cookies had sparked major family drama between them. No other daytime entertainer could give the perfect expression she did as a former member of Danity Kane and Celebrity Apprentice Contestant Aubrey O’Day sat down with her, talking about how she’s more “urban” than the reality show‘s other nerdy white castmates. Williams basically winked at the audience, repeating, “So urban.”

But it all started to fall apart around 2017 when she collapsed in a Statue of Liberty costume. There were rumors that her longtime husband had an affair and fathered a child with his girlfriend, which were eventually confirmed. She took time off in 2018 and 2019, tearfully revealing on her own talk show that she had been in rehab.

Williams came full throttle back on “Hot Topics” in 2020, urging Future to tie his “penis in a knot” and jokingly wishing Britney Spears’ parents were dead during the conservatorship battle. She was still often called out for her victim-blaming misogyny and anti-gay comments.

Early last year, she didn’t just return to the talk show, however; she also seemed in a nostalgic mood and anxious to claim her story. She created a gonzo Lifetime TV movie as well as a candid documentary, in which she snacks on caviar and Cheetos and tearfully talks about the end of her marriage.

Last fall, she disappeared again, raising speculation and prompting producers to bring in all of the guest hosts. The range of people — of all genders and races — speaks to the assortment of Williams’ own audience, as she was one of the few hosts who specifically catered to black women and gay men.

This week’s announcement, after months of postponing “Wendy will be back” to save face from her publicity team, led to tributes to Williams on Twitter. “As a queer, this show was an escape and always will be. 13 and over day? ! LEGENDARY!,” a user wrote. Andy Cohen shouted it out on his own talk show, proclaim“We love you, Wendy.”

Perhaps the greatest tribute to his longevity is remembering the many high-profile TV personalities who failed in the format during his reign, including Katie Couric, Anderson Cooper, Meredith Vieira, and Bethenny Frankel. When Ellen DeGeneres‘ beautiful personality fell apart and her talk show ended, Williams pointed out, “19 years on TV doesn’t change your life — it exposes you for the person you really are. “

And to his credit, Williams mostly owned his imperfections. In an interview with Cohen last year, he asked how she came up with the title of his candid documentary, Wendy Williams: What a waste! She said it was her reaction to the annoying headlines thrown around by Lifetime executives. It’s a fitting self-reprimand – and a tribute. ●

I was subconsciously browsing Instagram when a video of Meghan Markle chatting with talk show host Ellen DeGeneres caught my eye.

“Really… Another interview? And on daytime television from all places?” I thought.

So much for leaving the royal family to lead a discreet lifestyle. On the contrary, it seems the Sussexes have gone out of their way to make sure the world sits down and listens whenever they have something to say.

But whether you admit it or not, the couple have captivating star power, and any glimpse they offer into their lives awaits us eagerly.

So of course, I watched every clip of Meghan’s appearance on The Ellen Show that I could find (the episode has yet to air in South Africa).

That’s a far cry from having sat down with Oprah Winfrey earlier this year.

Meghan looks relaxed and cheerful.

This conversation is easier to digest than the important topics she explored with Oprah and this time the anecdotes she shares make her accessible because they are so relevant.

If Meghan is trying to sell us the idea that she’s just like any other devoted wife and mother, that’s an argument we buy into.

“I love to cook,” she tells Ellen of herself and her Thanksgiving plans with Harry.

“We’ll be home and kinda relax and settle in. It’s our second Thanksgiving home in California, so it will be nice.”

She shares how much two-year-old Archie enjoys being Lilibet’s (five-month-old) big brother and admits having a second child has been a game-changer for her and H, as she calls her husband.

“When you have a kid it’s a hobby and two kids are parents,” she tells Ellen.

If her tales of normalcy aren’t enough, she offers us humorous self-mockery stories (because the ability to laugh at yourself is the ultimate clue to emotional intelligence, right?).

Meghan (40) was a preteen obsessed with Andie McDowell in Four Weddings and a Funeral when she decided to have her hair cut curly like the actress in the film.

But because she has “ethnic hair,” she “looked like Krusty the Simpsons clown.”

She also reminds us that the lavish lifestyle she leads now was not her reality a few years ago.

The doors on the old Ford Explorer Sport that she used to get for acting auditions stopped working and because she was a broke and struggling actress – we read between the lines here – she had to get creative instead of fixing the mess.

“I parked in the back of the lot and opened the trunk, then got in and closed it behind me and crawled all over my seats to get out. This is how I came and went.

Translated freely, what she actually says is: I am like you!

But just in case she hasn’t fully convinced us that she traded the stiff upper lip of royal life for the freedom of the City of Angels, Meghan is almost stunned as she takes part in a prank for the show.

Her performance is hilarious, sometimes scary but undeniably entertaining.

A producer of the show poses as an executive assistant named Pwamma of the Duchess. Pwamma sincerely asks vendors that when Meghan is browsing their stalls, “she just wants to be treated normally”.

A revealing request, isn’t it?

Putting on an earpiece and eagerly following Ellen’s instructions, Meghan crouches down, introduces herself as “mum” and takes a sip of milk from a bottle as the puzzled vendors watch her.

The eight-minute clip ends with Meghan wearing kitten ears and chanting, “I’m a kitten. Meow meow meow. “

As expected, I found the comments section of the various clips posted on Instagram teeming with opinionated viewers.

There were some criticisms, “I thought she wanted to keep her privacy.” But most typed what I thought as they watched her chat: she’s a happier Meghan than the one we’ve seen lately.

Back in Hollywood – and with the blinding California glow to prove it – Meghan is in her element.

NEW YORK (AP) – It was Meghan’s time on Thursday on her friend Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show, as the Duchess of Sussex helped greet a special guest, hit the studio to prank the vendors and said she would cook Thanksgiving dinner herself.

“I love to cook. We’ll be home and relax and settle in,” Meghan said of her second Thanksgiving in California with Prince Harry and, now, their two children.

Meghan and DeGeneres, who met at a pet store over a decade ago, discussed Halloween (Archie was a dinosaur and baby Lili a skunk) and more serious issues like Meghan’s job to lobby for a federally paid family leave. And she said Harry had adapted well to the California lifestyle of Montecito, where Ellen is one of their neighbors.

“He loves it,” Meghan said. “We’re just happy. ”

Meghan got awkward at the Ellen when she donned an earpiece so Ellen could tell her what to say and what to do as she browsed merchandise from three vendors on the studio grounds. Meghan meowed into cat ears, devoured hot sauce on crackers like a chipmunk, and held a huge crystal to her face – all after a purported assistant told the trio of vendors to treat her like anything the world. They could hardly help but laugh.

“Let mom taste it.” My mate loves hot sauce, ”Meghan told a salesperson with a table full of hot sauces. “Mom wants some heat.”

Later on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” Ellen and Meghan welcomed Brittany Starks, a mom and hairstylist from Tennessee who gave back after helping herself through tough times by braiding schoolchildren’s hair for free. She has since started a charity, A Twist of Greatness.

The show and philanthropic partner TisBest donated $ 20,000 to her cause. Meghan and Harry matched him with an additional $ 20,000.

“We have been so touched by your story,” Meghan told Starks as she hugged her.

As Ellen DeGeneres prepares to end her longtime talk show next year, the search for a host to fill the void has reportedly come to Chicago.

A series starring singer and Oscar and Grammy winner Jennifer Hudson is hitting television networks, Variety reports, claiming that Hudson previously recorded a test show on the set of “Ellen” at Burbank, California.

It’s unclear whether the show, if it comes to fruition, would be recorded on one of the coasts or in the Chicago area, where Hudson was born and continues to reside. “People have this perception that all celebrities live in Hollywood or New York,” she told The Sun-Times in August. “But no, Chicago is my home and always will be.”

Although hosting a talk show would be a new challenge for the multi-talented Hudson, she has proven a charismatic personality as a guest and as a coach on “The Voice”. This year, she starred as Aretha Franklin in the biopic “Respect” and sang “Natural Woman” during the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction of songwriter Carole King (scheduled to air Nov. 20 on HBO).

A Hudson series would pair well with the hit talk show hosted by fellow “American Idol” alumnus Kelly Clarkson, which will switch to slots released by “Ellen” on NBC-owned stations, including WMAQ-Channel. 5 from Chicago in the fall of 2022.

DeGeneres revealed in May that she would end her show next spring, concluding a 19-season series in daytime talk.
