Cancel Me, Baby!

Cancel Me, Baby!

In the only show of its kind, a red carpet reporter turned pop culture provocateur takes years of interviewing celebrities and being immersed in Hollywood to challenge norms and say what we're really thinking. Each week, "Celebrity Whisperer" Taylor Ferber weighs in on pop culture and taboo issues in an irreverent, pull-no-punches way that breaks out of political lines and PC boxes. Oh, and it's pretty sexy. Come for the raw celeb encounter stories, stay for the controversial dialogues that would make the other shows blush.
