After MONTHS of relentless casting rumors and nonstop contract negotiations, do we FINALLY have an official selection for the much sought-after hosting positions on the new season of X Factor?
However, don't get too worked up!
Because according to sources close to production, the announcement will be made THIS WEEK!
And it looks as though that unless there's some unexpected, last-minute glitches, Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez will be taking to the stage once the live shows begin!
“Khloe will be in tons of meetings this week as Lamar [Odom] is now knee-deep in training camp and will also be going to Vegas and China within the next two weeks for the Clippers. So Khloe has plenty of time for business as her lawyers, people from E!, and executives at The X Factor will try to make it happen and get all the specifics hashed out. There is less than a three percent chance that it doesn’t get settled and worked out this week. They want Mario Lopez on the show as well, so they can make sure a host is available at all times if Khloe has to be elsewhere for her E! duties. This is the week for all the pieces to fall into place!”
Well that certainly makes sense!
We just can't understand why this has taken longer to figure out than the actual JUDGES selection this year!
They both have other jobs, we get that, but YEESH!
Just sign the dotted lines, you two!
The live shows are fast approaching, and we want our hosts prepared and on point!
This year's crop of talent certainly deserves that much!
What do U think?? Are U excited for Khloe and Mario to sign on for the job??
