One source claims the 18-year-old was actually bullied for being there -- apparently not everyone thought she earned the right to walk the shows!
The insider spilled:
It's that time again! The new season of X Factor is gearing up, and while we are supes excited for all the new talent, we're also REALLY looking forward to seeing the female judges' outfits every week!
And this go-round we have THREE stunning ladies who are gonna BRING IT!
Kelly looked GAWRGEOUS in a red Carven dress with side cut-outs, a Barbie-worthy high ponytail, and shiny gold hoops.
Guess she really is turning over a new fashion leaf!
Finally, Paulina certainly shined in her tight, electric blue dress with matching peep-toe pumps, but why did stylists put her in almost the exact same shade as Demi?
That just seems counter-intuitive.
But tell us, which seksi judge is UR fave???
