Seems like everybody loves to blabber. Faith Hill has announced that she will executive produce a daytime talk show concentrating on cooking, gardening, home entertaining, and other things domestic. Hill has enlisted Oprah defector Lisa Erspamer to midwife the show. Country music singer Kellie Pickler will act as the show’s first host. And another singer who can talk purdy good is Harry Connick Jr. who will host his own talk show next fall on Fox. That job fits right in with his personality. Connick tells me he’s always been an extrovert. “Extrovert is a nice word to describe a pain in the a–,” he says. “My dad reminds me all time how difficult it was ‘cause I had a tremendous amount of energy and was constantly performing and wanting to perform — anything to be looked at, or clapped at, or laughed at, anything. Nothing’s changed,” he says.
