Malinda Williams to Co-Host New Talk Show

Are you guys ready for another ‘The View’ style talk show? Well, Magic Johnson’s Aspire Network hopes you are and is ready to unveil ‘Exhale,’ a weekly chat fest starring actress Malinda Williams, former Essence editor Angele Burt-Murray, ‘Awkward Black Girl’ creator Issa Rae, stand-up comedienne Erin Jackson and journalist Rene Syler.

‘Exhale’ will have an eight episode run starting June 27th and will feature guests like A.J. Johnson, Lance Gross and Vanessa Bell Calloway.

Aspire is carried by Time Warner and Comcast, so if you have either of these cable providers, do support ‘Exhale.’


  1. Hhmmm if this were 199something then I’d say this show would be a hit. However the demographic has changed and I am not interested in seeing just black celebrities. Don’t get me wrong I enjoy shows like Monique thoroughly but there are other celebrities I enjoy other than my brothers and sisters.

  2. This show will have guests and topics that would never be seen or heard on mainstream TV. Remember how Arsenio had urban singers like Jodeci and Backstreet. Acts who didn’t stand a chance back then of being on the Tonight Show. We’ll that’s what will happen with Exhale. Vanessa Bell Calloway and AJ Johnson will never be on The VIEW . I am glad as blacks we creating something really for us to promote our people.

  3. How many of these type of shows are they bringing out this year? i know there’s the one with tamera Mowry and Tamar braxton. Is Aspire network a black network? i unfortunately don’t see an all black cast being a hit on a diverse network.
