NEW YORK, June 8 (UPI) -- Television personalities Andy Cohen and Giuliana Rancic are to serve as hosts of the 2011 Miss USA Pageant in Las Vegas June 19, organizers said Wednesday.

The announcement was made by NBC, Donald J. Trump and Paula M. Shugart, president of the Miss Universe Organization.

Cohen is host of Bravo's "Watch What Happens: Live" and Rancic is co-anchor of "E! News."

The 2011 Miss USA Pageant is to air live from Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino June 19. Joining Cohen and Rancic will be E! "Fashion Police" co-host Kelly Osbourne, who will provide color commentary throughout the telecast.

"It's our 60th anniversary, and what better way to add excitement to our show than with two of the most glamorous hosts on TV -- Andy and Giuliana," Shugart said in a statement. "Kelly's backstage commentary will surely take the energy of the show to another level."
