While hosting Strahan, Sara and Keke, singing, acting, and dancing, Keke Palmer has proven to be a quadruple threat. But during the COVID-19 pandemic, the daytime chatfest isn't filmer... and Ms. Palmer misses her team!

In a Harper's Bazaar digital profile, Palmer sent an Instagram DM to the writer, saying:

So obviously we aren’t currently working, which sucks! I miss our crew and Michael [Strahan] and Sara [Haines]. However, it does free some space up in my head to play around with ideas that I haven’t had the chance to get around to. Now that I’m chained to the house, I have no other choice but to find fun ways to stay active and creative! If you’re looking to be entertained for a bit, check out my Insta. I’ve turned it into my own daytime talk show! LMAO #helpme.

One particularly memorable SSK clip shows Palmer teaching the audience the history of Black hair. The actress told HB:

Sometimes when I was a kid, it was impossible to find people that knew how to do my hair. I learned how to deal with it. I made it a point to the people on set, like, ‘Uh-uh, we’re not gonna have that weird, awkward moment over my hair. This is what we’re doing.'

And thankfully, the bubbly Palmer isn't leaving daytime anytime soon. She shared:

I do see the shift. And I think it’s magical. From the beginning of my career, my mom always made me feel comfortable with being multifaceted. But I think in our industry, at the time that I got in, you were only allowed to be one thing. If you are a movie star, you can’t be on TV. If you are a TV star, you’ll never do movies.
