VH1's Daytime Divas: Kristen Johnston, Patti LaBelle Among Latest Castings

Just when we thought VH1’s upcoming Vanessa Williams-led drama Daytime Divas couldn’t get any juicier, along come three new additions to help stir the pot.

Kristen Johnston (The Exes), Patti LaBelle (American Horror Story) and Rob Estes (90210) will all appear on the View-skewering series, TVLine has learned. Based on former View co-host Star Jones’ 2011 novel Satan’s Sisters, Daytime Divas follows the day-to-day events of a popular ladies’ talk show called The Lunch Hour.

rob-estesJohnston will play Anna, the formerly frumpy assistant to Maxine (Williams’ character), who returns to New York as a “chic and hard-hitting journalist”; LaBelle will play Gloria, the “sharp-tongued, fabulous, prying” mother of William (Norm Lewis’ character), who claims to know her son better than anybody else; and Estes will play Vance Gordon, a sitcom actor who previously starred opposite Kibby (Chloe Bridges’ character), now re-entering her life as a guest on The Lunch Hour.

Previously announced cast members include Tichina Arnold, Camille Guaty and Fiona Gubelmann, who — along with Williams and Bridges — make up the hosts of The Lunch Hour.

    So very proud of “Daytime Divas” for casting my Ms. Patti Labelle in the new series. It’s a “Tailor made” role for her, she’ll certainly be an “Award Winning” natural as feisty “Momma Gloria”. Ps: please look very well after Shab’s (a.k.a. Yuri’s) Ms. Patti – she’s one “Holte” in a grand, gr8 lifetime – money can’t take that away from me or Her, for that matter! Nb: USA, GO VOTE ON 8 NOV 2016, DONALD TRUMP MAKE The Nation & World proud, God bless you Always! Love u too.#1975/07/12@shab

    It’s actually very difficult in this full of activity life to listen news on TV, thus I just use web for that reason,
    and get the most up-to-date information.

  3. Sufficient evidence shows that CCTV surveillance systems mostly discourage crimes and robberies, although not more vicious crimes including aggravated assault and rape.
    Modern technology has designed a small one-channel DVR capable of being placed inside of your hidden camera.

    systems may come as a result of the company’s deterrent effects as
    opposed to the presence of an physical record to watch.

    Finally, our happy couple could simply celebrate a calming evening
    together while experiencing and enjoying the crystal clear quality
    of digital broadcast as enhanced through the Direc – TV DVR by Tivo.

    One family might find having a DVR indispensable since they can more
    readily control what their children are watching on television.

  4. Pull-out sofa beds, rollaway beds and cribs available upon request.
    Trying to save cash in this area will not likely be good as the sofa will likely be
    very uncomfortable. Sitting is surely an obvious reason,
    but some people would also like their sofas to convert right into a bed.

    However, there is often a main room with two double beds, in addition to a living room area containing a
    sleeper sofa. Futons take less space than a sofa bed, nonetheless they still lack many benefits of a day bed.
