The series is based on Star Jones‘ best selling book, Satan’s Sisters and follows a fictitious long-running talk show titled “The Lunch Hour” that is hosted by five female co-hosts including Williams and Arnold along with Chloe Bridges, Camille Guaty and Fiona Gubelmann.

 

Music legend Pattil LaBelle is making good on a promise she made a few years back to her die hard fans and is finally releasing a Jazz album this May.

Bel Hommage, is a 13-track CD that includes such Jazz standards as “Moody’s Mood for Love” featuring Kem, Billie Holiday's classic “Don’t Explain,” Nina Simone's “Go To Hell” and one of my personal favorites “Here’s To Life,” which was made famous by one of Ms. Patti’s music idols—Shirley Horn.
