After leaving the Roman Catholic Church in 2009 to marry a woman, current Episcopal Priest Alberto Cutie will be standing before the cameras again when he gets his own daytime talk show. Describe as being the “Father Oprah,” Cutie’s show entitled Father Albert will be tested this summer in a deal made by FOX Television Station and the Debmar-Mercury Company. Another FOX daytime television talk show house produced by Debmar-Mercury is the Wendy Williams show.
The show is one-hour long program where Cutie will give advice to his audience members and viewers, and will consist of Cutie presenting his personal ideas on current events as well as interviewing special guests who visit the program. The senior vice president of programming as FOX TV, Frank Cicha sees that Cutie will bring a “fresh face and a distinctive voice,” to daytime television and believes that Father Cutie is the new face of daytime because his, “unique perspective makes him perfect for this role.”
Before his 2009 scandal involving his departure from the church, and the current development of a new show, Cutie was the host of a 1999 secular daily talk show program on Telemundo entitled Padre Alberto later renamed Cambia tu Vida con el Padre Alberto. Here’s all the luck to Cutie in his new career venture, apparently after leaving the church for his current wife, Ruhama Buni Canellis, then publishing his memoir Dilemma: A Priest’s Struggle with Faith and Love where he suggests the church is misogynistic and disconnected, Cutie is still on the man upstairs good side.
