The Two ‘Ks,’ Kelly Ripka And Kim Kardashian, Team Up For QVC Ovarian Cancer PSAs

Two of “Tinseltown’s most recognizable starlets,” (starlets?), Kelly Ripa and Kim Kardashian, are lending their support in finding a cure for one of the world’s least recognizable cancers.

Ripa and Kardashian are appearing in both print and public service announcements promoting “QVC Presents Super Saturday Live” Saturday, July 31, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., with net proceeds benefitting OCRF.

The exclusive sale, which was previously only available to Hamptons’ tastemakers and celebrities, will reach QVC’s more than 98 million U.S. households. So this year shoppers throughout the country will get a chance to buy designer styles at half the manufacturer’s suggested retail price.

Ripa, a longtime supporter of OCRF, has hosted Super Saturday for the past six years, and will once again host the event in the Hamptons. Currently in its 13th year, QVC will air Super Saturday for the fourth consecutive year.

“It’s been a pleasure for me to host Super Saturday for the past six years – it’s a wonderful event that benefits such an important cause,” Ripa said in a canned statement. “It’s guilt-free shopping at bargain basement prices – no husband can argue with that, not even my own!”

The other “starlet,” Kardashian, said, “With more than 20,000 women being diagnosed with ovarian cancer every year, it’s incredibly important that we spread the word so this number can be reduced. It’s an honor for me to work with Kelly in helping to drive awareness for such a great cause.”

OCRF president Faith Kates Kogan gave a shout out to Ripka and Kardashina.

“We’re also very appreciative to Kelly and Kim for joining us in our fight against ovarian cancer,” Kogan said. “Together, we will make a difference in combating this deadly disease.”
