RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively that Mel B is scheduled to be one of the first guests for the show that tapes this weekend.
The working title of the show is Mom Logic, after the Web site of the same name. Kate’s co-host is Paula Deen, the Southern cooking expert. Rene Syler and Lee Woodruff have also joined the show.
Sandra Bernhard and Tammy Lynn Michaels had been under consideration to join the show, but execs rejected them, a source told RadarOnline.com. The pilot will tape Sunday in Manhattan.
Kate’s new show will feature a mix of advice, health and beauty tips plus celebrity gossip. She and Mel B both have a common bond of very public, and heartbreaking, breakups.
Mel B endured a headline-making split from Eddie Murphy, who questioned his paternity of their child. A DNA test later proved he is the father, but not before he went on national TV and slammed her.
We’re sure Kate will empathize with that, especially after Jon’s recent appearances, telling the world he “despises” her.

The show had planned on booking Christie Brinkley as one of the first guests but a rep for the beautiful star says she will not be appearing on the pilot.
