“A great example of colorism is to believe I can be compared to anyone. I’m the youngest talk show host ever. The first Black woman to star in her own show on Nickelodeon, & the youngest & first Black Cinderella on broadway. I’m an incomparable talent,” Palmer tweeted.

Now, the star has added yet another hosting gig to her lengthy resume!
