Kate Gosselin is going to sit among the four women of "The View" this Fall, not as the talk show's guest but rather as the co-host. The star of TLC's "Jon & Kate plus 8" is tapped to be one of the substitutes for regular host Elisabeth Hasselbeck who is taking a maternity leave until mid October.
According to People, Kate is scheduled for two appearances, on September 14 and 15. This date is somehow contradictory to earlier reports which specified that Victoria Adams is the one who will appear on the September 14 episode. There is still no explanation for this yet.
"The View" itself will premiere the 13th season on September 8. Joining as guest host are Meghan McCain (September 9 and 10), La Toya Jackson (September 16 and 18), Kathy Griffin (September 19) and E.D. Hill (September 23 and 24).
"The View" ladies Joy Behar, Whoopi Goldberg, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Sherri Shepherd, and Barbara Walters are all nominated at 36th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards which will be held on August 30. The show, however, failed to secure a nomination in the category of Talk Show/Entertainment.
