Hosting a talk show is not new for Beauvais. She has a string of programs under her belt and she is also an experienced TV presenter.

Despite her popularity in the entertainment industry for 20 years, Beauvais shared that she has experienced being paid differently than her white peers. 

Aside from hosting, Beauvais is best known for her role as Francesca "Fancy" Monroe on the 1996 sitcom "The Jamie Foxx Show."
