Everyone’s choice for most tolerable Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, won’t be bringing her nipples to the X Factor stage again. Last season’s co-host has been fired from the singing competition show. Meanwhile, Mario Lopez and his dimples have been asked to return.
This follows the news that Britney Spears and L.A. Reid are stepping down as judges on the show, which has been battling Exactly Like Fifty Other Television Shows Syndrome. The series has even been described as “a disappointment” by a News Corp. exec. Wow, they should put that in the commercials.
I myself have never even hosted a slumber party, let alone a national television series, so I can’t comment on Khloe’s hosting abilities, but luckily a professional hosting coach (wasn’t aware those existed either) is explaining to the New York Post that Khloe deserved to get the ax:
“But at the end of the day, when she doesn’t know what she is doing, are you helping your show or hurting it?
It was really hard for me to watch Mario with her,” she said. “It made me, as a viewer, almost uncomfortable.”
So who’s going to replace Khloe? If only they could figure out a way to clone Mario Lopez so he could be his own co-host… Is it time to give Brian Dunkleman another chance?
Meanwhile, replacement judges are already being speculated about. Rumor has it British pop star Cheryl Cole, who was ousted, along with her fabulous hair, from the show early on, will return, because creator Simon Cowell regrets firing her. Oh, and also she’s suing him, so that could have something to do with it.
At this rate, I think The X Factor will soon only take place in Simon Cowell’s mind, and we’ll all be glued to the TV watching him sit in his Dr. Evil chair rubbing his chest over his black T-shirt while the wheels turn in his brain. All while he gets paid millions of dollars.
