Kardashian mom Kris Jenner to join 'The Talk'
Kris Jenner, the woman responsible for the Kardashian outbreak, will join CBS’ “The Talk” as a guest host and maybe more, according to sources.
Jenner will guest host for two weeks early in the season and is being eyed as a potential fill-in host for Sharon Osbourne on the daily gabfest on days she isn’t available, sources told Show Tracker. Also slated to join the daytime panel — which has dwindled down to Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert and semi-present Sharon Osbourne, who is cutting back to spend more time with husband Ozzy — is comedian and radio personality Sheryl Underwood, who will join as a co-host for the start of the new season, with potential to become a regular.
The additions are an attempt to fill some seats amid recent reports that Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete would not be returning for the show’s second season.
The studio and producers are also looking at other potential hosts or guest hosts but could start the season, which returns Sept. 6, with just four on the panel.
