The Queen Latifah Show has been cancelled, and the talk show diva — real name Dana Owens — has some complimentary words for her team. In a different take on the usual “thank you” note after a series’ end, Queen posted a letter on Facebook… to herself. But the note includes a P.S. that says Queen’s words are meant not only for her, but for everyone who was involved with the show.
Here is what she had to say.
Just a little note to say Thank You…
Thank you for your strong work ethic and great effort in getting The Queen Latifah Show off the ground and running.
Your dedication and sacrifice was crucial to the entire team, and in the face of intense challenges, you displayed ‘True Grit’!
Your Family, Partners, Staff and Crew showed up with you every step of the way. Be very proud of tha…t! Not everyone can say the same.
You can also say you have been a blessing to and been blessed by amazing guests and incredible audiences for this show.
We truly changed people’s lives for the better.
So… STAY POSITIVE, STAY STRONG, and most importantly, STAY OPEN… There is so much more God has in store!
P.S. This letter is for me, my staff, my crew, and everyone who was by my side for this incredible journey. 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.
USA Today reports it’s unusual for a talk show to be cancelled mid-season, since television stations contract for an entire year’s episodes. Queen’s show saw a 9 percent drop in viewership this year, averaging 1.4 million per episode. The Hollywood Reporter assures readers there will be plenty more Queen for the remainder of the season, as the show will crank out new episodes before shutting down production at the end of March.
Queen recently made news by canceling an interview with Bill Cosby amid allegations of the former Cosby Show star’s sexual misconduct. As the Inquisitr previously reported, runners at The Queen Latifah Show did not want to associate themselves with the Cosby controversy.
This is Queen Latifah’s second stab at the daytime talk show game. She had another show from 1999 to 2001. As a performer, Latifah has engaged in a variety of projects, including movies and a noted rapping career. She is a Grammy winner and was nominated for an Academy Award for her role in Chicago. On December 11, she heads to Oslo, Norway, to host the Nobel Peace Prize concert.
