Danish actress to host 'no men' talk show

Brigitte Nielsen is to host a women's talk show.

The Danish actress - who has battled alcohol addictions in the past - has revealed she will adhere to a strict "no men invited" policy, and discuss everything from politics to beauty to her own personal problems on her new British programme.

She told BANG Showbiz: "I'm hosting a women's talk show so all us girls can get together and chat. It's about time - no men got invited. It's girls talk. There will be a lot of strong, powerful, successful women and not only actresses.

"There will be politicians and models and public figures. We'll discuss everything from politics to beauty to problems, the whole spectrum. Women are complicated but we're the best!"

The 47-year-old star - who was famously married to 'Rocky' star Sylvester Stallone - believes she has faced up to the fact she will have to re-visit difficult parts of her life for the currently unnamed programme, but is confident she is in a good position to offer advice.

Speaking at the UK premiere of 'Eat Pray Love' at Empire Leicester Square last night, she said: "It will be an emotional rollercoaster like my life has been. I'll have to re-live certain things that I would rather not, but to be fair to the women that are going to watch it, I have to go over it again.

"Because of the down periods in my life I am in a position to give good advice to people going down the same path as me. I can hopefully stop them and help them turn their lives around. Never give up, there's always time to change and something better may be just around the corner."
