Jess Hilarious has officially joined the morning show The Breakfast Club as a co-host alongside Charlamagne Tha God and DJ Envy, finalizing a start date of February 5.
The comedian took this announcement to her Instagram profile on Monday, January 29 by sharing a clip of different media personalities discussing whether to hire her for the hit series, then bringing up trolls who thought she was bluffing earlier.
As reported by Vibe in December 2023, Jess had already revealed to a crowd that she has signed for The Breakfast Club. DJ Quicksilva posted a video of this moment on his social media, congratulating the celebrity, but neither iHeartMedia nor the show had made any announcements.
She had sometime later put up an Instagram post, calling Charlemagne and Envy “trash” for comparing singers Mary J. Blige and SZA as she wrote, “Envy, shut up! I know artists be pissed when old heads do this bc now everybody negative comparing SZA to MJB, and it ain’t even her fault! She has her own idendity.”
Seeing this, onlookers immediately suspected that Jess has somehow been fired, and is now taking the heat out on the show’s hosts instead.
Later when footballer Cam Newton appeared on an episode of The Breakfast Club, he asked the hosts whether Jess will be joining them, but the pair quickly ended the conversation without answering his question.
Now that the news has been made official, fans of the celebrity have been rejoicing.
“Got ‘em!” one wrote in the comments section.
