Stunning singer and actress Vanessa Williams is the latest star in talks to embark on a career as a TV talk show host.

The 41-year-old screen beauty, whose marriage to basketball ace Rick Fox recently crumbled, is reportedly close to signing a development deal with NBC UNIVERSAL DOMESTIC TELEVISION DISTRIBUTION.

Supermodel TYRA BANKS - who was once romantically linked to Fox - is also hoping to launch her own chat show career, as well as Tom Arnold and designers Isaac Mizrahi and Vera Wang.
