NEW YORK — A person familiar with the CBS daytime show “The Talk” has told The Associated Press the show is adding two new faces to its second season.
The person said Kris Jenner, reality TV personality and mother of the Kardashians, will fill in for Sharon Osbourne for two weeks at the start of the new season and could be a regular fill-on for Osbourne. The other newcomer will be comedian and radio personality Sheryl Underwood. She will co-host the show for the first two weeks and could stay on. The person was not authorized to discuss the cast and spoke on condition of anonymity.
“The Talk” debuts its second season Sept. 6 with returning hosts Osbourne, Julie Chen and Sara Gilbert.
Former “King of Queens” star Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete left the show after the first season.
Jenner has also been lined up to co-host the fourth hour of NBC’s “Today” for one morning alongside host Hoda Kotb in October, according to a network spokeswoman.
And Jenner’s memoir is expected in November, her representative announced Friday. To be released by Karen Hunter Publishing, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, the as-yet-untitled book will discuss her family. (Jenner is the mother of reality TV stars Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, Robert Jr., Kendall and Kylie). It also will deal with her work in television (she is the executive producer of the Kardashian shows).
