The actor, comedian and host now joins Sheryl Underwood, Amanda Kloots and Elaine Welteroth as co-hosts.
Jerry said during his introduction,
“I’ve never done this on like a real, permanent basis. I’ve done it temporarily here and there. But I like to have a good time. The world is a crazy place. It’s scary and it’s been really scary. I like everyone else has been cooped up. This is the first time I haven’t been in underwear in a year and a half. I am so excited to share that with you, ladies, and also with everybody watching. We’re going to have a good time.”
He guest-hosted The Talk on multiple occasions and had his own late-night talk show on Bravo called Bravo’s Play by Play. Jerry is the newest co-host to be announced after Sharon Osbourne’s departure in March and is the first male to join as a permanent host.
