Studdard explained how he could "carry a show way better" because he is open to all religions and sexual orientations, unlike his controversial cousins.

"Every religion, gender, sexual orientation and race is important," he said. "I'm somewhat conservative, but I know how to keep my opinions to myself!"

He added, "My show will be the real South, good style and a lot of colorful personalities. I could carry a show of my own with topics that could reach all audiences. I'm way more fun!"

Jill's husband Derick Dillard was fired from Counting On because of anti-transgender comments he made to I Am Jazz star Jazz Jennings over Twitter.

"Derick is more than welcome to make some cameos if he needs some money," Studdard said.

The LGBTQ activist previously told Radar that he is "embarrassed" and "offended" by Dillard's comments.

"Derick needs to keep his mouth shut," he said. "We don't have to agree with someone's life, but don't speak out publically when you know you're already disliked by half of America. As a public figure, he should stop being so harsh."

He continued, "I believe love is everywhere. Everyone should just be happy!"

Dillard continued his hate when he trashed TLC star Nate Berkus and his husband Jeremiah Brent in April.

"What a travesty of family," he wrote. "It's sad how blatant the liberal agenda is, such that it both highlights and celebrates a lifestyle so degrading to children on public television as if it should be normal."
