“Daytime Divas” Sneak Peek: Watch the First 8 Minutes of the Series Premiere!

Warning: Watching the Video Below May Cause Obsessive Behavior.

When we heard about Star Jones’ 2011 book Satan’s Sisters — A Novel of Fiction set behind the scenes of a long-running daytime television show, chronicling the fireworks that erupt daily between the five female co-hosts — being turned into a TV show called Daytime Divas (Jones says the title change was for marketing purposes), that definitely piqued our interest.

When the very impressive cast was announced, we were ecstatic! Then when VH1 released the first 8 minutes of the series premiere, we went crazy! Just from watching the first 8 minutes alone, we know for sure we’ll be glued to our televisions this summer to watch how all the juicy goodness goes down!

In the clip (which first appeared on TVLine), you’ll quickly be introduced to “The Lunch Hour,” the fictional daytime talk show within the show. And while it may look familiar, Executive Producer Star Jones swears, “This is not The View!”

“It’s not The View; it’s just fun,” Star said on her recent guest appearance on The View. “But it does have some elements of 25 years in daytime television; I think I’ve learned a few things over that time.”

Watch the sneak peek below and get ready to get obsessed!

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.
