All hail the queen. Queen Latifah is helping to make the holidays a little brighter for her laid-off talk show staff by digging into her own wallet and paying their salaries.

According to E! News, the multi-talented entertainer is using her own money to pay the show's crew through the holidays, even though production has officially shut down.

The show was canceled earlier this year after two seasons. The daytime show was produced by Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith and featured a slew of big guests, including former President Bill Clinton.

E! shares that original episodes of the show will run through March 2015, but its production crew is no longer necessary. Big ups to Queen Latifah for lending a helping hand to the behind-the-scenes folks during this difficult time.
