The vision for Kelly’s show, which is set to debut in June, got a little bit clearer this week: She will reportedly welcome a large contingent of the Kardashian family as her first guests.
Kelly was spotted during filming of the family’s long-running reality show, “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” on Thursday. But, according to TMZ, the meet-up was actually part of her plan to sit down with Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, Kylie, Kendall and Kris for an in-depth interview. Rob Kardashian and Caitlyn Jenner will reportedly not be in attendance.
The interview will take up most of the premiere of Kelly’s currently untitled Sunday night show, the outlet reports.
Welcoming the Kardashian family as the show’s first guests comes as a bit of a surprise after speculation that Kelly and NBC had been working to land a major interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin. The Kardashians, apparently, were next on the list.
In January, Kelly was freed from her contract with Fox News and reportedly signed a deal estimated at $18 million with NBC. In addition to anchoring a news hour on Sunday nights, Kelly will also be allotted a daytime hour in the “Today” morning lineup.
The Huffington Post has reached out to Kelly’s representatives and will update this post accordingly.
