The two reality stars will finally meet each other since they both have been tapped to be the guest hosts of September 18 episode.
There could be a tension this coming Friday because "The View" is not only featuring Kathy Griffin as a co-host but also bringing back Kate Gosselin on the same day. Kathy, who notoriously puts the Gosselins as the objects of her jokes, will face off the divorced mother in person.
According to Chicago Sun-Times, Kate is welcomed back to the show although she just appeared on Tuesday. The sole purpose is to have her confronting the comedienne. Kate is to tape the segment, which would be her third in the show, on Thursday, September 17.
Kathy previously put on a wig that resembles Kate's iconic hairstyle for a skit on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!". In the parody, Kathy portrays a Kate who is so absorbed by the reality show "Jon & Kate Plus 8" that she is ignorant to her eight kids and cheating husband.
While signing for her new book back on September 8, Kathy also said "I would like to say that Jon Gosselin is right and Kate Gosselin abused me as well. That's a primetime exclusive." She added, "Jon Gosselin is a tool and he knows it, and everyone in Reading, Pennsylvania knows it."
For Kathy herself, this coming episode of "The View" is an important one because she was unceremoniously banned from it a couple of years ago.
