Boy, these reality shows just LOVE to keep us guessing!
While earlier, it was reported that Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez were both thisclose to becoming X Factor’s new hosts, there now may be one HUGE thing standing in the way!
It seems E!, the Kardashian family’s network home, must give permission FIRST before Khlo Khlo gets signed on!
Reportedly, E! execs are hesitant about allowing Khloe to do XF, because that would mean she’d have less time for THEIR shows’ promo and press!
Uh oh! This isn’t sounding too good!
The network is not only worried about time conflicts, but also the fact that exclusivity is a MAJOR part of Khloe’s E! contract!
It also sounds like Simon Cowell now may NOT be looking for both a male and a female host and would just rather take Khloe on solo!
If an agreement is reached, Khloe will most likely host — if not, Mario Lopez will supposedly take her place.
Guess we’ll find out soon enough… at least before the first live show on November 1st!
