The woman who got Jane Fonda to discuss her favorite sex positions is back—thanks to Chelsea Handler! Amanda de Cadenet returns to the host’s seat in a new live weekly talk show, Lifetime’s Undone With @AmandadeCadenet.

De Cadenet, 42, tells Us Weekly that her guest host gig on Chelsea Lately sparked her interest in doing her own live talk show. "When I hosted that show it reminded me about how fun hosting a show can be. I thought, 'Wow! I could do a show like this,' so it's all Chelsea's fault! Hosting her show reminded me of how fun that kind of television is," de Cadenet recalls. "We're still friends, so I'm assuming I did fine!"

"On this show we'll talk about news happening each week," de Cadenet tells Us of the half-hour show, premiering on July 24th at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT on Lifetime. "It's largely about looking at pop culture and a lot of my guests and my friends are people who are talked about in pop culture."

The former The Conversation host has also been thinking of her dream guest list, with Jennifer Lawrence, Channing Tatum, Orlando Bloom, Kellan Lutz, Jake Gyllenhaal and Aaron Paul all making the cut. "They have to be easy on the eyes, of course!" de Cadenet jokes.
