Daytime Divas Cast

VH1's View-Skewering Drama Series Daytime Divas Adds Tichina Arnold, Chloe Bridges, Camille Guaty

Take some time to enjoy The View‘s doppelgängers!

VH1 has completed casting of Daytime Divas, its forthcoming scripted series based on ex-View panelist Star Jones’ 2011 roman à clef Satan’s Sisters, and joining Vanessa Williams at the host table will be Tichina Arnold (Survivor’s Remorse), Chloe Bridges (Pretty Little Liars), Camille Guaty (Scorpion) and Fiona Gubelmann (Wilfred). Additionally, Hit the Floor‘s McKinley Freeman is set to co-star as the son of Williams’ character.

The hour-long drama follows the five female hosts of The Lunch Hour, a long-running, popular ladies’ talk show in which alliances are forged, careers are made and bridges are burned. As previously reported, Williams stars as Maxine, Lunch Hour‘s creator and host. Read on for character descriptions for her four co-hosts (and see if you pick up on any subtle View nods).

Arnold plays Rosie Mo, a stand-up comic with no edit button which gets her into trouble with Maxine, the show’s creator and lead host. Mo owns her sexuality. She apologizes to no one.

Bridges plays Raven-Symone Kibby, a sexually fluid former child star.

Guaty plays Lisa Nina, a professional, successful former war correspondent. Like her co-hosts, Nina is a gem on camera but will stand up for herself backstage even if it means fighting with the women she works with.

Gubelmann plays Elizabeth Heather, a former-beauty queen and The Lunch Hour‘s self-proclaimed spiritual guide. Though she claims to be the forgiving one, she’ll occasionally hold her moral superiority over someone’s head if it means getting a leg up.

Chris Alberghini and Mike Chessler (Awkward, 90210) are showrunners as well as executive producers.

    This may be my next guilty-pleasure. I am looking forward to checking it out.

    Love the premise, but these are the guys that drove Awkward into the ground, so I’m not getting my hopes up.
