Kris Jenner's talk show is set to air in July and her daughter Kim Kardashian and boyfriend Kanye West are reportedly set to appear as first guests when the show premieres.
The Kardashian matriarch, 57, appears in two 21-second promotional clips, dressed in head-to-toe purple, where she explains the concept of what will be her very first talk show.
"Hi I'm Kris Jenner and I'm a mom with a pretty active family," Jenner says in the promo clip.
"When we're all just hanging out, that's my favorite time. Lots of laughs, great conversation, and I thought, 'That would make for a great talk show!' So … you're in for a good time," she adds.
Jenner, who is no stranger to the camera, will host "Kris," a daily 1-hour program that will reportedly air July 15 on select Fox-owned stations in New York, Los Angeles and other cities. The show will reportedly feature celebrity guests and discussions will center on fashion, beauty and lifestyle, according to Yahoo.com.
Kardashian, 32, is due to give birth to her and West's first child in July and critics are questioning whether Jenner's talk show premiere is intentionally set to coincide with her daughter's due date to boost ratings. Jenner, who is widely referred to as a "momager" because she manages her childrens' careers, has reportedly set her sights on Kardashian and West, 35, to be her first guests on the show.
"They also want to have celebrity guests on the show starting with Kanye and Kim! This will be part of their $40 million dollar deal with E!" a source was previously quoted as telling The Hollywood Reporter.
Kim Kardashian's press coverage has been booming in recent months particularly due to her pregnancy and her infamous divorce battle against NBA player Kris Humphries, which is now finalized. Critics expect that Jenner, who is "thrilled" that her daughter moved on with West, will ask them questions about their relationship, which would likely boost ratings.
"Kris Jenner is ecstatic that Kim is dating Kanye; she can see their celebrity stock and wealth rising by the day," a source previously told RadarOnline.com. "Kris just marks Kris Humphries down as a major mistake to be forgotten and is eager for Kim to move on to bigger and better things, which, she believes, Kanye definitely is."
Hollywood producer Robert Lifton, whose credits include "Access Hollywood" and "ESPN Sportscenter," has been named executive producer of Jenner's show. The show's content will be "pop culture-driven," according to sources.
"With Robert's energy and the experience that he brings to the table, I am beyond excited to begin this new chapter. I am so happy he is on this journey with me, as I feel like I'm in good hands," Jenner said in a statement.
"This is something I have wanted to do all my life so it's definitely a dream come true! I can't wait for this new adventure to begin," she added.
