Kara DioGuardi “The View” Guest Co-Host

With conservative chatterbox Elisabeth Hasselbeck still out on maternity leave, American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi is the latest star joining the round table for a guest co-hosting gig on The View, ABC News announced on Monday.

Kara will guest co-host the Emmy-winning daytime talk show, alongside regulars Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, and Sherri Shepherd, on October 15. The singer/songwriter/producer made her View debut following the American Idol finale last May. The appearance will be the first time Kara has co-hosted the show.
