Kate Gosselin to Co-Host The View

by at . Comments

You've been watching Jon Minus 9 Plus 4 Mediocre Girls.

Now, get ready for Kate Plus 8 and 4 Loud Windbags!

Continuing her recent media tour, Kate Gosselin is going from celebrity gossip fodder to celebrity pundit, joining the growing list of surprisingly topical guest co-hosts for the upcoming season of popular current events gab-fest The View.

Kate will throw in her grating two cents September 14-15, when she sits in for Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who is on maternity leave until October sometime.

TALK SHOW QUEEN: Kate Gosselin (with her bodyguard and rumored lover Steve Neild) departs CNN studios after a lonely appearance last night on Larry King Live.

The irony for Elisabeth Hasselbeck is that the conservative host offered this unsolicited (and typically riled-up) advice to Kate back in June: "get a job!"

Looks like she did. Hers. It's hard to tell which of them is more annoying.

Mrs. Gosselin joins LaToya Jackson and Meghan McCain at the table.
