Kim Kardashian co-hosted “Live with Kelly and Ryan” on Monday, joining Ryan Seacrest as a fill-in for Kelly Ripa. Watch the video below!

Kardashian and “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” executive producer Seacrest are longtime friends, and they came out to a standing ovation as they held hands. “You’re the queen bee today,” Seacrest told her before recounting the first time they met in 2006, with help from his “American Idol” colleague Randy Jackson. The rest, as they say, is history. “Yo, Randy, thank you,” Seacrest said, to which Kardashian added, “I don’t think Randy gets credit.” The reality star went on to admit she’s “mortified” of the initial footage she and her family shot for E!. Seacrest said, “It all worked out. So, congratulations.”

This summer, Kardashian said, “All my family members are on vacations. I’m at home working.” But she’s eager for her famous clan to join her. “I can’t film by myself,” she pointed out. And Seacrest noted, “Kris is mama bear, but Kim is also mama bear… She’s the diplomat in all situations.” Kardashian agreed, and even revealed she recently had a “heart to heart” with Kendall Jenner.

Seacrest wanted to know how her kids North and Saint get along, and Kardashian confessed, “I thought it was a phase. She does not like her brother. It is so hard for me… The phase isn’t going away.” As for the morning’s hot topics, Seacrest brought up the trend of spouses sleeping separately, but Kardashian said she and Kanye West aren’t on board and never do it “intentionally.” She cracked, “Not like Kourtney and Scott used to.”

Additional topics ranged from male cleavage to long hair, snacking, and even online rumors. Kardashian joked that she believes “100 percent” of the things she reads about herself, quipping, “If I lived that life, it would be very exciting.” It was announced earlier this month that Kardashian would co-host with Seacrest, just a few weeks before the season premiere of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” And, naturally, the news sparked a number of unfounded rumors.

Gossip Cop busted RadarOnline for falsely claiming Kardashian was “desperate to replace” Ripa permanently. Celeb Dirty Laundry ridiculously alleged Ripa was quitting due to Kardashian. And the site also had an equally wrong story about Seacrest supposedly being “relieved” Kardashian was hosting because he’s not getting along with Ripa. But it’s all lies.

Later in the show, Kardashian and Seacrest watched the original sizzle reel for “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” and marveled over how much has changed. “Last season was really hard for me,” she acknowledged, alluding to her robbery. “I just thought there’s so much going on and we just never stop… I took a couple months off.” But she called Caitlyn Jenner’s transition the “most difficult thing to film… just ’cause we had no idea if people were going to accept her.”

Unfortunately, she and her former stepfather “don’t have much of a relationship” right now, “but we’re family,” Kardashian said, “so I do believe that maybe this is just a phase.” She added, “At the end of the day, I’ll always ride for my mom… At the end of the day, we’re all family, and I’m not gonna say anything. I’m just gonna try to be super-positive and hope that it’ll all resolves itself.” Check out the videos of Kardashian co-hosting with Seacrest below!
