The TV Reign of Queen Latifah Has Ended

The 18th Annual Hollywood Film Awards - Arrivals

Sorry, Queen Latifah

The Queen Latifah Show, now in its 2nd season, will be halting production immediately! Sources at TMZ say the staff was brought into an office this morning and given the news…the show’s getting the ax.

Queen Latifah didn’t keep quiet on this, either.  In a note posted on her Facebook page, she says:

“Your dedication and sacrifice was crucial to the entire team, and in the face of intense challenges, you displayed ‘True Grit.!'”

She ends by saying, “The most important thing in life is that you wake up every single day and take chances. No matter what the outcome … believe in yourself and continue to fly.”

Amen, sister.  On to bigger and better things!

Queen Latifah Gets INTENSE In “Good Housekeeping.”


Queen Latifah got REAL in this month’s issue of Good Housekeeping!

On making the decision to love herself: “I think I got to that place by not being happy with the other side — hating your body and criticizing yourself all the time. When I was around 18, I looked in the mirror and said, You’re either going to love yourself or hate yourself. And I decided to love myself. That changed a lot of things.

On feeling broken after her brother’s death: “My life was rocked to the core…I felt guilty, because I was angry at God. ‘Lance was not there for me to share it with, And I was thinking, Well, I don’t need this. I’d rather have my brother back.’

On abusing alcohol after tragedies: “Drinking a bunch of alcohol, numbing myself. Every day I would be faded, like a painting that’s just not vibrant, whose edges are dull, I wasn’t living my full life.”

On what she learned from therapy (suggested by Jada Pinkett-Smith): “We ignore our feelings a lot, I realize. Many of us have to…until they really bite us in the butt. What set me free was looking at it from a different perspective, I was 5, manipulated and afraid. You have to say something. The power of those who perpetrate the abuse is your fear and your shame…and that’s unacceptable.

On remaining faithful through her trials: “I was continuously praying, I realized that wasn’t helping me or my brother. I learned that God was going to provide comfort; I know He is always listening and guiding…I got this little message in my head that I feel was from God. It was as clear as day, like a voice that said to me, ‘Dana, don’t let it all go, because you’re gonna get through this.’ Nobody is perfect. I know that I’m not a saint, but God’s love is there for me. I know that I need help to make it through every day, so I pray to God to help me do the best I can, to lift me up when I am tired and help me develop into the person He wants me to be…I am always surrounded by His love, and He is always there.

Her positive outlook on life: “The world is going to keep turning whether I’m here or not. Taking the worry of the world on my shoulders is not right. My New Year’s resolution is to stay humble and be joyous, whether that’s spending time with family, hiking, driving around, listening to music, or playing with my dog. It’s so important to take care of ourselves that way.

Queen Latifah wants an heir to the throne.

Queen Latifah is ready to expand her family.

While making an appearance on The View Wednesday, Queen Latifah, 42, talked about how she was interested in adopting a child..

When co-host Barbara Walters asked the Joyful Noise actress if she would ever adopt, Latifah told Walters, “I’m actually kind of working on that.”

Added the currently single rapper, “I think I saw one of those specials . . . you know those movies of the week. And it was like — I just always wanted to bring a child home.”

Still not satisfied with Latifah’s response, Walters pressed her for more info.

“So are you really seriously planning on adopting?” Walters asked.

“I’m totally serious,” Latifah said, adding jokingly, “So if you got a kid that you don’t . . . Just give me a year — let me set up camp and send me the kid! But no, no, totally.”

Good for her.  I think Queen Latifah would do great raising a little prince or princess.
