Guest Bio: Kym Douglas, TV Host, Author, Actress
Kym Douglas is a television host, best-selling author, beauty, fashion and lifestyle expert and comedy actress. She is also a coveted contributor to magazines and editorials around the country.

Kym can be seen every day sharing all her latest beauty and lifestyle tips as a Family Member and fill in Co Host on Hallmark Channel’s Emmy-Nominated talk/lifestyle show Home & Family. In addition, for the past 11 years, she has been delighting viewers with her antics on #1 rated daytime The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Kym’s unique improv and sketch comedy ability paired with her comedic timing and useful information make her a one of a kind “infotainment” entertainer. She has been labeled a cross between Goldie Hawn & Lucille Ball!

Kym’s career started at the age of 16 when she started working as an intern at the local station WJBK in Southfield, MI. She later moved on to WLUC in Marquette, Michigan to anchor the evening news.

Kym met her future husband, Jerry Douglas, (John Abbott, The Young and the Restless) when she was chosen to host the ‘Jerry Lewis Muscular Dystrophy Telethon’ in Las Vegas in 1983. Jerry was the telethon’s ‘celebrity host from LA.’ Kym made a bold move and asked Jerry if he would let her interview him so that she could take the story back to her small town news station in Michigan. Jerry agreed if she would go out to dinner with him and their instant love story began. They have been married for 32 years.

Kym Douglas is also the proud mother to her 19-year-old son Hunter, who is studying business at USC. A dog lover, she and Jerry have two dogs, a lab named (Tom) Brady and a maltese, Bella Bliss.

Douglas can often be found using her kitchen as a “beauty lab” where you will find her whipping up a face mask or lotion from things she finds in her cabinets. Her son and his classmates are often her (victims) subjects. It is not unfamiliar to find five or six of them lined up on her kitchen stools as she tests her recipes on them before sharing them with the rest of the world.

Her house is always full and her laundry basket overflowing.

Kym is a real girl’s girl. She can’t get enough pretty party dresses, pink lipstick, and like most women, she can never have too many shoes! Her home is her haven and she is equally comfortable cooking up beauty secrets as well as a gourmet meal for the family.

She loves her mom and dad with all her heart and E.E. Cummings is one of her favorite poets. Kym is most passionate about people, her faith, her family and her work! With a playful heart she always manages to add just the right dose of humor as she informs, inspires, and encourages you to feel good, find your inner bliss, and to become the best version of you that you can possibly be.

Encountering a devastating health diagnosis can turn your life upside down. 

Some succumb to the fear and anxiety. Others use the diagnosis as a catalyst.

Kym joins Dr. Taz to share her personal journey through cancer and cancer treatment -- and what she learned along the way.
