Embattled reality-TV mom Kate Gosselin will mix it up with the ladies of ABC's The View as a guest host on Sept. 14 and 15, PEOPLE has learned.

The star of TLC's Jon & Kate Plus 8 will be filling in for Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who will still be on maternity leave when The View returns from its summer-rerun schedule on Sept. 8.

Gosselin, 34, whose separation from husband Jon has dominated the headlines throughout the summer, will no doubt help the talk show hit the ground running in the ratings as it begins its 13th season.

The program has several other guest hosts lined up to join Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar and Sherri Shepherd during September. They include Meghan McCain, the daughter of Sen. John McCain, on the 9th and 10th; LaToya Jackson on the 16th and 18th; and FOX News Channel anchor E.D. Hill on the 23rd and 24th.
