To know of Kim Kardashian’s existence is to recognise that she looks damned good when placed in front of a camera. But even with that skill well and truly honed, her newest career move from reality television mogul to morning TV host is about as risky as they come.
Earlier this week it was announced that the mother-of-two will join longtime friend and Keeping up with the Kardashians executive producer Ryan Seacrest on the couch of his major US morning talk show Live With Kelly And Ryan later this month while fellow co-host Kelly Ripa is on leave.
From first glance, it makes sense given her and Seacrest’s long-running relationship and natural banter, plus it’s a good opportunity for the 36-year-old. But the history of the Kardashian family and hosting appearances is not a pleasant one, which makes the decision on Kim’s part all the more confusing.
