When all things come to an end, there is certain things you do to make your staff happy and send your “Thank You’s” to those who have worked for you.
Queen Latifah showed her appreciation for her staff by paying them by using her own money. Although the announcement of the show being cancelled was just recently, she paid her former employees out of her own pocket.
E! News made the following statement about Latifah:
…Latifah is using her own money to pay the show’s crew through the holidays even though production has officially shut down. (While original episodes of the show will run through March, the production crew is no longer necessary.)
Even though the show is cancelled, there will still be original episodes until March. In addition, Queen Latifah will be playing in a biopic as the role of singer Bessie Smith in HBO’s Bessie.
