CBS is closing in on two new hosts for “The Talk” after the network declined to pick up the contracts of Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete, reports EW.com’s Inside TV blog.
The network may be positioning Kris Jenner, the mom and manager of the Kardashians, as one of its new hosts. For now, though, it’s a guest-hosting gig.
Jenner has signed on for a two-week appearance early in the season and is being considered as a substitute for Sharon Osbourne when she isn’t available, the story notes.
"The Talk" has also picked comedian and radio personality Sheryl Underwood to join as a co-host at the start of this season, with Underwood possibly becoming a regular, the piece adds.
Julie Chen and Sara Gilbert remain on board, with the new season set to launch Sept. 6.
