Oh how I hate to report on anything Kardashian, but if/when I am forced to, I prefer to report on the one that is the least annoying of the lot. For me, that’s Khloe, and so I can report with no ill will that she has just been confirmed as the new host of X Factor. She will share hosting duties with Mario Lopez, who also has finally been inked into a deal.
Reports claim that Khloe’s pimp mama Kris Jenner crashed into the negotiating room and got the ball rolling after a standoff ensued over Kardashian’s presence on E!. Jenner assured them that she could dutifully pimp out her daughter on both networks and the deal was approved. X Factor returns to television in November and the pressure is on for the show to build upon its first season and possibly take Nielsen points from The Voice and American Idol.
So even though now it looks like Kardashians are trickling over onto other networks, this is one move I can stomach. I just hope that she’s so good that Mario Lopez gets fired, and then she can be the sole host!
