  • - Hey guys, I'm Keke Palmer.

  • I'm an actress, singer, dancer, host, producer, entertainer.

  • I'm gonna be opening up my little black book

  • and introducing you to some very important people

  • and pretty much showing you some

  • behind the scenes of my world.

  • (upbeat music)

  • Subscribe to the Bazaar channel

  • so you don't miss an episode.

  • (upbeat music)

  • (upbeat bass music)

  • Typical day for me would be, you know,

  • waking up around like five, working out,

  • heading to set for "Strahan, Sara, and Keke" at

  • about 6:30, getting there about 6:45,

  • doing hair and makeup and some prepping with producers

  • in my dressing room until about 8:45,

  • where I go and do a G-M-A tease for our show.

  • And then after that I do like,

  • another producers meeting at around like 9:10

  • and then head out to do the show at about 9:45, 10:00 am.

  • Then the show lasts for about an hour or so,

  • you know, we go into the audience

  • and always, you know, try to make time

  • for our audience to take pictures.

  • So I pretty much leave at about, like, 11:30, 12:00.

  • And then after that there are like,

  • a bunch of miscellaneous things that

  • I may or may not have to do,

  • where maybe I have a shoot with Bazaar or I, you know,

  • have a phone call that I have to make, or you know,

  • another meeting, and so that kind of changes,

  • but you know, it's always the show,

  • every morning now, Monday through Thursday.

  • - We wanted to start talking about what to do

  • for Michael, 'cause he's gonna be lonely

  • when I take my maternity leave,

  • and when Michael was traveling a few months back,

  • I had the best time with one of our guest hosts.

  • - And you are talking about Keke Palmer.

  • (audience cheers)

  • - It's so interesting, how I started doing

  • "Strahan, Sara, and Keke" or SSK.

  • When I was 20, I hosted a talk show of my own

  • called "Just Keke," and you know, I started

  • the development of that show when I was about 18.

  • I never necessarily saw, you know, me doing

  • a show like "Strahan, Sara, and Keke" in the future.

  • I just knew that that was going to be the beginning

  • of a whole new aspect of creativity for me.

  • Initially I came on as a guest,

  • and then after that, they were like,

  • Sara, you know, is gonna go on maternity leave soon,

  • would you be interested in guest hosting?

  • And I was like, okay, guest hosting, like, why not?

  • I mean, I love hosting, it'd be cool to

  • get back into that again.

  • I hadn't done it in awhile.

  • And so, eventually, you know, they asked me

  • if I wanted to come on and really

  • be a full time part of the show.

  • And I was like...

  • - We love Keke-- - Aw.

  • - 'Cause she stepped up to the plate

  • and joined our family and carried the ball.

  • I'll use a football term for you.

  • And so we thought we'd do something really special for you.

  • Are you ready? - Aw, yeah!

  • I was born August 26th, and August 26th was

  • the day that I actually became a part of

  • "Strahan, Sara, and Keke" officially,

  • and I, you know, knew that I was, you know,

  • gonna be a part of the show at some point, and you know,

  • it's kind of been, we'd been talking about it,

  • but I didn't know when or how it was going to happen.

  • Look right here and push this button.

  • - Okay. - There we go,

  • she pushed the button, what happens?

  • - Keep watching. - Yeah!

  • - Yeah! (applause)

  • - When they had me press that button,

  • and, you know, it's like, boom, the name changed,

  • I was just like, no, no, stop, stop,

  • and I was trying so bad to hold back tears

  • because I'm not a pretty crier,

  • when I cry, I'm like (guffaws)

  • so I was trying so hard to, you know remain calm,

  • but more than anything, what was so special was they had

  • everybody that's so important to me a part of it.

  • My mom was there, my sister was there,

  • my friends, my close friends were there,

  • and everybody that has seen my journey,

  • as a young entertainer from acting, music, hosting

  • and all those things, for them to see

  • and be there for this moment, it was just,

  • I was very grateful, and to me,

  • it was so thoughtful of them to have them there.

  • (upbeat music) - All right, hi.

  • - I'm excited yet nervous for you guys to meet Rory,

  • but it'll be a hoot for sure.

  • - Excited to do this, lookin' good Phil.

  • Billy, how are ya? (laughs)

  • - My name's Rory Albanese,

  • I'm the executive producer of "Strahan, Sara, and Keke"

  • which is the third hour of G-M-A,

  • my job here is basically to oversee,

  • manage the staff of the show

  • and the creative content on the show,

  • and I also work very closely with all three hosts,

  • both Strahan, Sara, and Keke.

  • - Our relationship over the course of things has been

  • really interesting because you know, again,

  • I never necessarily saw myself

  • doing a daytime talk show.

  • I didn't know what that would mean or

  • what the format is, and with him,

  • he's always embracing that side of me,

  • and wants me to always know that

  • there isn't a fine structure of lines

  • or things I have to try to fit myself in, you know?

  • The point is be Keke, they allow me to be real,

  • and that's what they love and respect about me.

  • I avoided him like the plague, and then

  • he eventually like, tried to force hello and

  • everything like that, I was like (guffaws).

  • (audience laughs) But it was very...

  • - I looked at this whole thing almost like

  • casting a sitcom, which is just about

  • getting different energies on the couch

  • and having different perspectives, and I felt like

  • she brought a different perspective

  • that you don't really see too much in daytime,

  • and she's crazy talented, I mean,

  • she can do a lot of things.

  • (applause)

  • Hang all the mistletoe

  • ♪ I'm gonna get to know you better

  • - A favorite moment for me has to be

  • Keke singing on our Christmas show.

  • That's one of those moments where she's singing and

  • everyone in the studio's just kind of looking around like,

  • this is insane, how incredible she is,

  • and that to me was a moment, like, that Christmas show.

  • I mean, it helped that we had a vacation

  • coming up right after it, so we were all like,

  • in a kind of a good mood, but it's an amazing performance.

  • Merry Christmas to all

  • (applause)

  • (Keke sighs)

  • - I will say that Michael and Sara

  • both show who they are on TV, so everything that

  • you'd think is probably what you already know.

  • Michael is extremely goofy,

  • he's a lot of fun to be around,

  • he's kind of like a big kid.

  • And then Sara, I think what's really cool about Sara is

  • also her trajectory as a host

  • and that she not only has you know,

  • the skill to be on camera, but she also has

  • a lot of history as being a producer.

  • She's just really smart, so I love

  • being able to be around that too.

  • - For me, this show, I think

  • the most interesting part is definitely the people.

  • Like, I've never worked with three hosts before,

  • and the three of them are so fun,

  • and they all legitimately love each other

  • which is a big deal.

  • That, to me, is what makes this thing

  • so special, is the chemistry between

  • the three hosts and the staff.

  • (upbeat music)

  • - Oh my gosh, a typical scene in my dressing room is like,

  • a gag on top of gag on top of gags.

  • Like literally, we're talking about everything,

  • we're talking about, you know, "Love Island,"

  • we're talking about, you know, friendships,

  • we're talking about how we feel this morning.

  • We just talk about so many different things

  • and I'm very happy to have the glam team that I have.

  • And just the team that I have in general,

  • they make every day worthwhile,

  • and I know even if I'm not in a good mood,

  • they understand and they accept me for who I am.

  • I think it's very important,

  • especially when you're doing something

  • every single day with people.

  • You wanna make sure it's people that support you,

  • understand you and love you, and I think

  • that's what we have together, so...

  • We laughing, we crying, but mostly

  • we're cracking jokes on each other.

  • (upbeat music)

- Hey guys, I'm Keke Palmer.
