“Daytime Divas” Star Chloe Bridges Introduces Her Out, Pansexual Character Kibby Ainsley

We have a very good feeling that we’ll be spending our summer with the ladies of The Lunch Hour, the fictional daytime talk show on VH1’s brand new scripted series Daytime Divas.

Before the show makes its debut Monday night, the network is giving you a chance to get to know the cast via a series of videos showcasing the talented ensemble and their characters we’ll be introduced to.

Chloe Bridges plays Kibby Ainsley, a former child star and out pansexual who is smart and is trying to turn her life around after rehab. She has a troubled relationship with her own mother, so she sees Maxine as a mother figure and mentor.

“I’m a former child star whose been given a second chance by Maxine,” Chloe says of her character. “She gave me a job when nobody else wanted to hire me.”

“She struggles with addiction and she doesn’t get a long with her mother who she sees as a gold digger and just generally not a nice person. She doesn’t have much as far as family goes.”

Watch the video below to see more of what Chloe had to say about Daytime Divas, including what Kibby is like as the newbie on The Lunch Hour.

Every weekday at noon, Maxine (Vanessa Williams), Mo (Tichina Arnold), Heather (Fiona Gubelmann), Kibby (Chloe Bridges), and Nina (Camille Guaty)—hosts of “The Lunch Hour,” the long-running women’s talk show—gather around the table to discuss life, love, politics, and juicy gossip.

But behind the scenes, it’s even juicier — a backstage world filled with power struggles, diva fits, and steamy affairs. Inspired by the book Satan’s Sisters… A Novel of Fiction by Star Jones, television personality, lawyer and journalist.

The 10-episode first season of Daytime Divas premieres Monday, June 5, at 10pm on VH1.
