Actress Keke Palmer will host a daily talk show on BET starting this July. The 'Keke Palmer Project' will make Palmer the youngest talk show host in history.
Her show will cover such topics as fashion, pop culture, social issues, seJudge Greg Mathisx, and will feature celebrity interviews, “on the street” bits and undercover segments. It stems from Palmer’s interaction with fans on social media. “I like to read quotes that touch on how I am feeling,” she said. “If I am dealing with confusion, I will read quotes about clarity and peace of mind. I started posting these quotes on my Twitter page, and the fans responded so positively! I realized that many of them were dealing with similar issues, and the quotes helped to open up a genuine dialogue between us.”
Palmer rose to fame in 2006 with her breakout role in Akeelah and the Bee (Widescreen Edition). Most recently she played Rozonda "Chili" Thomas in VH1's TLC biopic. She also starred in Nickelodeon series True Jackson VP: Season 1, Vol. One.
