ABC has announced DioGuardi will serve as a guest co-host filling in for The View regular and former Survivor: The Australian Outback castaway Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who is currently on maternity leave after giving birth to her third child last month.
DioGuardi will serve as a guest co-host during The View's October 15 broadcast.
"I don't think that Adam was ever 'in' so I'm not... you know, I think he was always openly out," DioGardi told The View host Barbara Walters during the May appearance.
"I think he was, from what I've seen in various forms of things. I do. I never thought he looked like he wasn't [out]," DioGuardi told Walters when she asked if DioGuardi really thought Lambert had always been "openly out."
Additional co-hosts who will be filling in for Hasselbeck while she's on maternity leave include Fox News anchor E.D. Hill on September 23 and 24; singer Gloria Estefan on September 29; former The View co-host Lisa Ling on October 5 and 6; Ugly Betty star Ana Ortiz on October 8th; and The Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco on October 13.
