Khloe Kardashian Fired From “X-Factor” GigBy: Amanda Crum - February 18, 2013
Khloe Kardashian may be looking for a job soon, as it’s being reported that the suits at “X-Factor” have asked Mario Lopez back to fulfill hosting duties in the next season but not her.
Kardashian had no prior experience before landing the high-profile gig, and many fans of the show often complained of her awkward, stilted chemistry with Lopez. “I am sure there was a big percentage of Khloe’s fans who followed her to ‘X Factor.’” said Marki Costello, who assists stars with getting camera-ready and coaches them on their onscreen persona. “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. It made me, as a viewer, almost uncomfortable.”
The show may find itself floundering for viewers this season after judges L.A. Reid and Britney Spears announced they wouldn’t be back; Reid said he wanted to focus more on his job at Epic Records, and Britney will be touring, recording, and making perfumes like it’s the year 2000.
