Daytime Divas is a VH1 television show that premiered in 2017. It is a comedic drama series that takes a satirical look behind-the-scenes of a daily talk show called The Lunch Hour. The show explores the relationships between the five co-hosts of the show, who are all strong-willed women with unique perspectives and personalities.

The main character of the show is Maxine Robinson, played by Vanessa Williams. Maxine is the creator and host of The Lunch Hour, and she is a powerful and commanding presence on the show. She is also a fierce businesswoman who is always looking for ways to increase ratings and bring her show to the top. However, her personal life is not as put-together as her professional one, and she is dealing with a messy divorce and issues with her daughter.

Chloe Bridges plays the role of Kibby Ainsley, a former child star who is now a co-host on The Lunch Hour. Kibby is known for her bubbly personality and optimistic outlook on life, but she also harbors a dark past that threatens to affect her future. Despite her struggles, Kibby is determined to make her mark on the talk show world and prove that she is more than just a pretty face.

Camille Guaty portrays Nina Sandoval, a loud and opinionated co-host who often clashes with Maxine. Nina is passionate about social justice issues and is not afraid to speak her mind on The Lunch Hour. She also has a complicated personal life, as she is juggling a secret relationship with a married man and dealing with the fallout of a revenge porn scandal.

Fiona Gubelmann plays the role of Heather Flynn-Kellogg, a conservative co-host who is known for her controversial opinions and conservative views. Despite her political leanings, Heather is often the voice of reason on the show, and she is not afraid to call out her fellow co-hosts when they go too far. However, Heather also has her own secrets to hide, including a battle with addiction and a dysfunctional marriage.

The show takes a humorous approach to the drama that unfolds behind the scenes of The Lunch Hour. From on-air feuds to behind-the-scenes romances, there is always something happening with the co-hosts. The show also explores the pressures that come with being in the public eye, as the co-hosts navigate their personal and professional lives under the scrutiny of the media.

Despite its comedic approach, Daytime Divas also tackles serious issues such as racism, sexism, and the #MeToo movement. The show does not shy away from these topics, and it presents them in a thought-provoking and nuanced way. The characters are complex and multi-dimensional, and the show does an excellent job of exploring their motivations and backstories.

Daytime Divas received positive reviews from critics, who praised the show's witty writing and talented cast. While the show only ran for one season, it has garnered a dedicated fanbase who have praised the show for its unique approach to the typically formulaic talk show genre.

In conclusion, Daytime Divas is a humorous and thoughtful look at the drama that unfolds behind the scenes of a daily talk show. The show explores complex issues and features a talented cast of actors who bring their characters to life. Although the show was only on the air for one season, it is definitely worth a watch for fans of drama and comedy alike.
