Khloe Kardashian Primetime Talk Show Pushed to 2016
Drinks with Khloe Kardashian will have to wait.
FYI is pushing the debut of the reality star's primetime talk show to 2016, the A+E-owned network announced Wednesday.
Kocktails With Khloe will now premiere on Wednesday, Jan. 20 at 10 p.m. — the first of eight hour-long episodes. The series was originally scheduled to launch on Dec. 9, but the delay is presumably tied to her estranged husband's recent health scare.
Lamar Odom, whom Kardashian wed in 2009, was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel on Oct. 13. He was hospitalized for several days but eventually regained consciousness and the ability to communicate. He has since been transferred to a medical facility in Los Angeles. Kardashian recently pulled the plug on a planned press tour for her new book, Strong Looks Better Naked, in the wake of Odom's hospitalization.
On Kocktails With Khloe, Kardashian will be joined by celebrity guests and friends in the kitchen and around the table for a dinner party filled with cooking, pop culture, conversation and outrageously fun party games. The Los Angeles-based entry will be produced by Craig Piligian’s Pilgrim Studios.
Kardashian will executive produce the show with Piligian (The Ultimate Fighter, Wicked Tuna) and Derek W. Wan for Pilgrim, and Gena McCarthy, Toby Faulkner and Lauren Wohl for FYI.
Kardashian will still juggle her duties on Kocktails With Khloe with her family's long-running reality series, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, which kicks off season eleven on Nov. 15.
