Vanessa Williams isn’t quite pimpin’, but she’s proud to be a D.I.V.A. in this promo for VH1’s newest scripted series, Daytime Divas.
The actress and singer turns rapper as she does her glammed up rendition of 50 Cent’s 2003 banga, “P.I.M.P.” Vanessa who plays Maxine Robinson, host of The Real-esque daytime show called Lunch Hour is strutting down the halls of the set letting her co-hosts know who really runs the show. The rest of the hosts — Tichina Arnold as Mo Evans, Camille Guaty as Nina, Fiona Gubelmann as Heather Flyn-Kellog, and Chloe Bridges as Kibby Ainsley — join in (or try to) to proudly exclaim that they, too, are D-I-V-A’s, but as you can see, the qween is running ish. If you peep Maxine’s side-eye in the end, you already the tensions will hilariously run deep.
Excited? ’Cause we are! You cannot miss the premiere of Daytime Divas coming to VH1 Monday, June 5th 10/9c!
