Kelly Ripa to Guest Star on AMERICAN HOUSEWIFE
Kelly Ripa will guest star on ABC's AMERICAN HOUSEWIFE, according to Variety.
Ripa will take on the voice-over role of Whitney, a divorcée who is also Katie's (Katy Mixon) new boss at the event coordination company, Parties By Whitney. Although Whitney and Katie have yet to meet, Whitney still demands nothing but the best from her new employee. Ripa will appear for at least two episodes, beginning with the series premiere on September 26th.
Ripa is best known for playing Hayley Vaughan on the ABC's "All My Children" and as the co-host for "Live! with Kelly and Ryan."
American Housewife follows Katie Otto, a confident, unapologetic wife and mother of three, who raises her flawed family in the wealthy town of Westport, Connecticut, filled with "perfect" mommies and their "perfect" offspring. Joining Katie in her perfectly imperfect world is her husband, Greg Otto, who supports her in every way possible, but with a dash of reality thrown in as they work to ensure their children - including their oldest teenage daughter, Taylor, who is already set on the "perfect" path; their middle son, Oliver, who has one goal in life: to be rich; and their youngest, Anna Kat, who needs a little extra help navigating life - do not end up like everyone else. Katie also has her closest friends in town, Angela and Doris, who help her keep it all in perspective. Despite her flaws and unconventional ways, Katie ultimately only wants the best for her kids and will fight tooth and nail to instill some good old-fashioned values in them, if it's the last thing she does.
American Housewife stars Katy Mixon as Katie Otto, Diedrich Bader as Greg Otto, Meg Donnelly as Taylor Otto, Daniel DiMaggio as Oliver Otto, Julia Butters as Anna-Kat Otto, Carly Hughes as Angela and Ali Wong as Doris.
