This is unimaginably tragic.
The team did release a statement on the matter, though (below):
First it was because Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez didn’t get along. Then it was because Kris Jenner tried too hard to get Mario replaced by one of her other daughters. Now it’s because Khloe is just too darn busy!
The reason for Khloe not returning to X Factor has sure been hard to pin down, and none of the "official" reasons seem to include her, um, shall we say, "different" interpretation of co-hosting. We can’t help but wonder what new reason will surface next!
However, momager Kris doesn’t seem to be upset or resentful about her daughter’s apparent snub, and encourages everyone to keep watching the show. We’re inclined to think that there are no hard feelings between the cast and the Kris-Khloe Kombo.
"Khloe had such a good time and she wasn't sure if she was going to come back or not, so I think that with everything going on and the other three shows she's working on, it just worked out for the best. Everything happens for a reason, but she was in love with her experience and had such a good time. I hope everyone continues to watch and it's such a great show. I'm sure they'll be just fine!"
So it sounds like Kris is sticking with the “too busy” story. And we have to admit, three shows is a lot to be working on! Khloe is certainly a busy gal!!
But whether Khloe left the show for one, none, or all of the reasons we've heard, we like Ryan Seacrest’s take on things. He was proud of Khloe, and reinforced the fact that she did a great job considering it was her first time filling a co-host role!
Seacrest said the following:
"She did a great job. That's tough if you've never done it before. She's not trained at it, she kind of went out there, and her first gig was a live national show. She's got plenty to do and I think she'll be just fine, and I think she'd say, what a great experience and I'm glad that I had the opportunity to do it."
Well we’re glad we had the opportunity to watch! Khloe definitely brought her own X factor to X Factor, and as Kris says, her leaving was probably for the best. Schedule-wise and all.
Looking forward to those other three shows!
