What’s good news for Mario Lopez is bad news for Khloe Kardashian. The reality star and the host of Extra were both named hosts of The X-Factor last year, but unfortunately Khloe won’t be returning this season. In a statement released today, producers of the show announced that Khloe would not be back;
“Khloe Kardashian will not be returning to co-host The X-Factor. We really enjoyed working with her and wish her all the best in her future endeavors,”
Simon Cowell also released a statement saying;
“I’m thrilled Mario is back for Season Three of The X-Factor. Hosting a live show and keeping the judges – especially Demi – in line, is not an easy job, but Mario is a pro and we are glad he’s coming back,”
If you watched the show I don’t think this will come as much of a surprise. After all, Mario was quite good but Khloe rarely looked comfortable up on the stage. I’m just looking forward to hearing who the new judges will be since Britney Spears and L.A. Reid have both left. I hope they get it right and some great talent up there. I do like Demi Lovato but I am anxious to see who the new replacements will be!
