She may be a pit bull in heels, but if there’s one thing Maxine Robinson has taught the ladies of The Lunch Hour, it’s that a true diva owns her skeletons before anyone can use them against you. That’s just what happens in this Daytime Divas sneak peek as Maxine brings in a PR powerhouse named Isabel (hey La La!) to handle Nina and Shawn’s scandalous affair, which is now plastered all over the tabloids. Nina’s status as a cheater is further complicated by her engagement to a high profile politician and oh yea… she’s also pregnant with Shawn’s baby. There’s that, too.
In Isabel’s professional opinion, the show could avoid bad press if Nina addressed the affair head on during the show, where Maxine would then pivot into a discussion about gender politics. It’s a strategy that satisfies the viewers’ appetite for messiness without revealing too many juicy details. Hey, if it worked for Bill Clinton and Hugh Grant, it could put out any Lunch Hour fire, right?
Check out Nina’s reaction to Isabel’s game plan in the sneak peek above, and don’t forget to tune in to Daytime Divas Mondays at 10/9c!
