A report from Page Six has that a previously rumored new NBC talk show in development starring Lisa Rinna as one of the main panelists/anchors, may just be the replacement for The Merdeith Vieira Show which has been cancelled after its second season.
The RHOBH and former DAYs star would appear in the new vehicle with these other panelists: Former Party of Five star, Scott Wolf, R&B singer Kelis, and comedian Al Jackson.
A source told Page Six that the Rinna project: “could very well be a Meredith replacement. Since they were considering a panel format for Meredith’s show, but it didn’t work.”
However, a source close to NBC says nothing with the Rinna proposed talker is set in stone noting: “Nothing has been green-lit or sold to a launch station group. And a source close to NBC made no comment on if the series is even in development.
If Rinna would return to a talker, this would make her return to the format after starring with Ty Treadway for several seasons on SoapNet’s Soap Talk.
So, what do you think of this proposed talker featuring Rinna? Comment below!
