Also, Star Jones is still around. Who knew?

If you're lucky, you remember Vanessa Williams's iconic role as Wilhelmina Slater, the tough-as-nails (and twice as sharp) fashion editor on Ugly Betty.

Three Emmy nominations and not a single win--meanwhile, where was the federal government when this robbery was taking place on American soil? Between Betty and A Diva's Christmas Carol, Williams basically cornered the market on the high-powered HBIC on TV, bridging the gap between Amanda on Melrose Place and Cookie on Empire.

Well, thanks to Star Jones of all people, Vanny's making her wig-snatching coming back to TV in Satan's Sisters. And it. Sounds. Awesome. According to BuzzFeed:

The show revolves around The Lunch Hour, a fictional daytime talk show that bears more than a passing resemblance to ABC's The View, which is no coincidence: The series is based on the 2011 book of the same name by Star Jones, who famously co-hosted The View for nine seasons.

Williams will play Robinson who (at least in the book) is revered as queen of The Lunch Hour, until it's revealed that an insider plans to reveal all the show's dirty secrets.

"I'm such a fan of the talented team of Star Jones and Suzanne De Passe, who are giving us a look at behind-the-scenes drama of America's favorite daytime talkshow," Williams told BuzzFeed in a statement. "I can't wait to jump into this fictional world of secrets, lies, and ambition and rule the roost. Bring it on ladies!"

Satan's Sisters. Doing it for themselves. The show premieres on VH1 next year.
