Queen Latifah on Her New CBS Daytime Talk Show

Queen Latifah, newest addition to day-time talk slate, tells The Hollywood Reporter that her guests will be a mix of A-list celebrities and everyday heroes. One of her favorite upcoming guests is a 26-year-old widow, who has set up an organization for other young women who have lost husbands to go on adventures, such white water rafting.

"To me, she's a hero," The Queen Latifah Show host says.

Latifah also praised several talk show icons, calling Oprah Winfrey "the pinnacle" and affectionately saying of Jimmy Fallon: "that's my boy."

"I've learned a lot from doing all the shows, the biggest thing I've leaned is to just be myself and I'm OK with that."
