Khloe has been X’d! A source close to production tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively the reality star will not return for season three of ‘The X Factor,’ but her co-host Mario Lopez will stay on board. Are you sad to see Khloe go?
“They are asking Mario [Lopez] to come back, but not Khloe,” an insider confirms to The New York Post.
A spokesperson for The X Factor has only said, ‘The producers have not yet made the talent decisions for this year.”
However, a source close to the show confirmed the news and tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively, “they are looking to still pair someone with Mario Lopez, but still have plenty of time to make those decisions, so it’s not as much of a rush as it is for the judges.”
Even though Khloe, 28, is hugely popular on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, among her many other E! spinoffs, she had a hard time adjusting to live television. She came to the show with no hosting experience. And while Simon Cowell brought her on because of that, her lack of training left her nervous and unsure of how to act in front of the cameras.
Khloe was criticized for being overly loud and repetitive when it came to certain words. Of course, we can’t forget that Khloe exposed her nipples through a sheer blouse under the bright stage lighting on her very first show. While we’re not saying these were any reasons for her departure, they could have potentially been factors. (No pun intended.)
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Should Khloe have been fired?
