Jonathan Cheban (Kim K's best friend) was supposed to host Xposé today... and blew them off at the last minute

He has to go to The Hamptons, okay?

YESTERDAY, TV3 ISSUED a press release excitedly announcing that Jonathan Cheban, a friend of Kim Kardashian’s, would be making his “Irish TV debut” and co-hosting Xposé today and tomorrow.

Quite the coup.


Jonathan Cheban is best known for latching on to Kim Kardashian and never letting go. Additionally, he is known for appearing on reality shows like Celebrity Big Brother, Celebs Go Dating and Millionaire Matchmaker.

He’s also a self-proclaimed food god and regularly posts photos of himself eating decadent (and sometimes disgusting-looking) meals. His Instagram handle is @foodgod, so he must be legit.

Cheban flew to London earlier this week to appear on Celebrity Juice and gush about his fondness for Daily Mail.

There he is with Keith Lemon.

He was due to appear on Xposé today and tomorrow. In fact, TV3 told us yesterday that he would be live from Ballymount.

Unfortunately, TV3 issued at press release at 3.02pm today saying that Jonathan Cheban had canceled due to “unforeseen circumstances”.

Jonathan’s manager said: “Due to unforeseen circumstances Jonathan has had to return to NY, we are hoping to reschedule a visit to Ireland very soon.”

A quick gander through Cheban’s Snapchat from the last 24 hours reveals that he spent the evening eating lots of food in London before returning to his hotel room in the wee hours to bemoan “the longest day ever”.

Is anybody up? What’s up, guys?

This morning, he shared some snaps of himself eating some free brownies in his Westminster hotel. (Classic Food God behaviour, really.)

He then explained that he was departing London and shared a photo of his admittedly impressive view.

“Guys I’m just leaving London, but look at this view,” he wrote.  I’m staying at the Westminster Park Plaza Hotel and it’s awesome here.”

And then he dropped this bombshell.

Now time to go back to The Hamptons! Memor–

The snap cuts off, but Cheban is clearly about to say something to the effect of “Memorial Day Weekend,” which is taking place this weekend in the USA.


Did Jonathan Cheban blow off Xposé just so he could hang out in The Hamptons for the weekend? Quite possibly!

TV3 declined to comment any further and urgent Snapchat messages to Jonathan Cheban have gone unanswered. (Please reply, Jonathan!!!)

Let’s hope he has a good weekend, eh?
