Keeping Up with the Kardashians star Kris Jenner intends to make a big splash with her new daytime talk show Kris, debuting Monday, July 15, on several Fox-owned stations around the country — but she won't be going it along. Jenner has selected Good Morning America correspondent and former All My Children star Cameron Mathison as her very first cohost.
A rep for the chatathon, which is being test-marketed for a possible nationwide run in 2014, tells TV Guide Magazine that Jenner and Mathison will be seen in an array of how-to segments involving cooking, belly dancing and self defense. Jenner will also share exclusive deets on her new granddaughter, North West. Will the baby make her first public appearance on Grandma's new show? Mum's the word on that but Day One is definitely a family affair — Jenner's daughters, Kourtney Kardashian and Khloé Kardashian-Odom, will be on hand, as will her husband, Bruce Jenner and son Brandon.
Guests for the premiere hour include the Italian pop-opera group Il Volo. Expect lots of video messages from Jenner's BFFs, including Regis Philbin, Robin Roberts and Simon Cowell. Other cohosts lined up for the six-week trial run include Ryan Seacrest, Joan Rivers, TMZ's Harvey Levin, Kathie Lee Gifford and Sean "Diddy" Combs.
Filmed in Los Angeles, Kris will premiere on select Fox stations including Fox 5 in New York (11 a.m.) and Fox 11 in Los Angeles (3 p.m.). Additional cities to premiere the talk show include Fox 9 Minneapolis (12 p.m.), Fox 10 Phoenix (11 a.m.), Fox 4 Dallas (3 p.m.), and Fox 46 Carolinas (2 p.m.).
