Rumors are circulating Queen Latifah may land her very own talk show. This wouldn’t be the first time, however. The rapper turned actress joined the daytime talk show arena back in 1999 with her own show until its cancellation in 2001.
The re-installment of “The Queen Latifah Show” will be executive produced by the “queen” herself, Will Smith and wife Jada Pinkett-Smith.
According to Deadline.com the show will fuse comedy, pop culture and musical features as well as celebrity interviews and human interest stories.

She also talked about whether or not she’d like to become a mother when the talk show host asked. Although she was reluctant to answer the question, she eventually said it was in God’s hands on if or when it would happen. Check out what she had to say.
Last night’s 2010 BET Award ceremony sure did not disappoint!

In the recent issue of Essence magazine rap sensation and actress, Queen Latifah opens up about childhood demons. The star reveals she was sexual abused and has struggled with commitment issues.
Of the traumatic experience, Latifah tells that she was violated by a teenage babysitter, saying, “He violated me. I never told anybody. I just buried it as deeply as I could and kept people at an arms length. I never really let a person get too close to me.”
She also admits that, because of the abuse, she’s since struggled with commitment. “I could have been married years ago, but I had a commitment issue.”
The issue is now available at your local news stand.
The part we all love! Let’s take a look on what the stars wore last night.
The gorgeous Halle Berry with beau Gabriel Aubry.
Beyonce dazzled in this number, not one of my faves but she pulled it off. Everyone’s favorite black couple, Will & Jada always make the most stunning couple. Alicia Keys looked great as usual, not a big fan of the extensions but her dress looked great, beautiful spring color. And although Taraji P. Henson didn’t win for Best Supposting Actress she looked dashing. Light tones and soft tones dominated the Oscars light night and Taraji pulled it off well. I think the real Mr. & Mrs. Smith may have some competition with everyone’s favorite couple ever, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Love them! Queen Latifah looked great last ngiht and her tribute to those who are no longer with us was great!
