With Kelly Ripa carrying on bravely in the wake of Regis Philbin’s departure in November, the morning talk staple now called “Live with Kelly” has announced a high-profile guest co-host.
Kim Kardashian will join Ripa as a guest co-host Jan. 23, according to The Hollywood Reporter’s The Live Feed blog.
The week of Jan. 23-27 will feature an exclusively female group of co-hosts, although the show hasn’t announced the full lineup, the story says. Kardashian has appeared as a guest on the show twice, but has never hosted.
The show has entertained a bevy of co-hosts since Regis Philbin left the show in November, including Jerry Seinfeld, Neil Patrick Harris and others.
