Guess we now know what the hold up with the casting announcement was!
Remember when we reported a few weeks back that Khloé Kardashian's negotiations to become the co-host of X Factor had hit a snag, as Fox and the E! network, on which she already appears, couldn't resolve how to share her star power?!
Well, obviously whatever issues they had have been resolved now that the reality starlet has been confirmed alongside Mario Lopez, but according to sources close to the situation, her deal with THISCLOSE to falling through…until Kris Jenner intervened and saved the day!
Insiders reveal that Fox and E! were having such a difficult time coming to a resolution that the reality competition's production was ready to pass on Khloé entirely, but the notorious momager "stepped in over the agents…over everyone" and forced both parties to sit down and make the deal work!
As they conclude:
"She just knows how to make sh*t happen."
And thank goodness for that!
We definitely think Khloé has the potential to be a great host, and we're glad that she had someone like her mom on her side to take the bull by the horns and push the execs in the obviously right direction!
So long Fox and E! just remember to share and continue playing nice together! HA!
