The famous-for-being-famous Kardashians have already got a host of programs on E, including "Khloe and Lamar" and "Kourtney and Kim Take Miami," spinoffs of the original, "Keeping Up With the Kardashians." So it's only fitting that their takeover continues with Kris Jenner, the Kardashian matriarch, who is now getting her own daytime talk show on Fox. Deadline reports that "it will feature celebrity guests, fashion & beauty trends; plus a mix of lifestyle topics." Jenner, who will also exec produce the show, said, “This is something I have wanted to do all my life so it’s definitely a dream come true!"

The program will get a test run this summer, joining a slot alongside talk shows hosted by Wendy Williams and Bethenny Frankel, both of which are nationally syndicated. Frank Cicha, SVP of programming, Fox Television Stations, said, “Wouldn’t be summer without at least one test, would it? In all seriousness, we go into this believing that if it works, the Kris Jenner program could really complement what we’ve got going with Wendy, Bethenny, etc.”


So yeah, there's that.
