Kim Kardashian appeared on her mother’s new talk show today, but not exactly as anticipated. The 32-year-old reality star had announced via Twitter Friday morning that she would be on the show, making fans think she would actually be on the stage with mom Kris Jenner. Instead, Kardashian appeared via satellite video.

“Getting ready to surprise my mom on @krisjennershow today!!! You ready NYC? Tune in!” she wrote earlier in the day. The beauty made an appearance as Jenner sat alongside entrepreneur Diddy, and congratulated her mother on her new daytime talk show, which launched last month. While Kardashian looked beautiful, she was only visible from the shoulders up in the video. There was no weight-loss reveal, as people had hoped, nor was there any sign of her newborn daughter, North West, which she'd hinted at previously.

Regardless, this is one of the very few public appearances Kardashian has made since the June 15 birth of her first child with boyfriend Kanye West, which is very unlike the popular celebrity.

And while she has not shown off her post-baby body yet, her good friend Jonathan Cheban is sure that she is probably just about as hot as before. “Knowing Kim, I'm sure she looks 80 per cent at this point, she's pretty much perfect,” he said, reports the Daily Mail.

A source close to Kardashian tells People that she has “lost a lot of the baby weight. She’s feeling great and looking forward to getting back in shape.” Word is she's been working out with celebrity trainer Tracey Anderson, who whipped older sister Khloe into shape. Kardashian also works out with A-list trainer Gunnar Peterson.

While the $11 million Bel Air mansion she bought earlier this year is being renovated, the new mother is staying at her mother's home and following a special diet while “settling into a routine with her daughter,” the insider went on to say. And it seems Kardashian may not have much more weight to lose before she goes out in public again. “She’s happy with the way she looks, but she knows she still has a way to go to get her pre-baby body totally back.”
