Lifestyle Expert

Kym is a television host, best-selling author, comedienne, beauty, fashion and lifestyle expert. She is also a coveted contributor to a number of magazines around the country.

Viewers delight in seeing Kym every day sharing all her latest tips on Hallmark Channel’s Emmy® nominated talk/lifestyle show “Home & Family.” She is often called upon to co-host as well. In addition, for the past 11 years, she has been delighting viewers with her antics on the #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 was a member of the esteemed comedy troupe The Second City. She performed with them in Los Angeles and was a part of their improv group performing on stage nightly for over two years.  

Kym met her future husband, Jerry Douglas, (John Abbott, The Young and the Restless) when she was hosting the ‘Jerry Lewis Muscular Dystrophy Telethon’ in Las Vegas in 1983. He 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 2 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.
