Kim Kardashian To Guest-Host 'Live! With Kelly'

Posted: Updated:

Kim Kardashian may not be appearing in Skechers ads during this year's Super Bowl, but she will still be popping up on television screens. Kim announced on her blog last night that she'll be guest-hosting "Live! With Kelly" (Weekdays, syndicated on ABC) on January 23rd.

"I'm so excited to reveal that I will be co-hosting Live! with Kelly, with the wonderful Kelly Ripa on January 23!! I've been wanting to share this news for weeks now!! I can't wait to see Kelly! Xo"

According to TheWrap, Kim's stint will kick off a week of female guest hosts on the ABC morning show. She and Kelly will reportedly interview "Glee" star Kevin McHale as part of the episode.

Kelly Ripa -- who recently signed a new five-year deal to stay with the show -- has been hosting "Live!" with a succession of guest hosts since Regis Philbin stepped down in November.

Jerry Seinfeld stepped up to the plate as the first guest host, in what he termed "Operation Smooth Transition," and this week has featured a guest host roster made up of sports stars. Today's guest host is ESPN analyst and former NFL quarterback Jesse Palmer.

No full-time replacement for Philbin has yet been appointed, but names linked with the job so far have included Ryan Seacrest, Andy Cohen and Ripa's husband Mark Consuelos.

"Live! With Kelly" airs Weekdays, syndicated on ABC.
