Reality star Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez were just announced as co-hosts for the live shows on this season of “The X Factor”. They have yet to appear on the show, but apparently the drama behind the scenes is already heating up.
She joked to Ryan Seacrest, “[Mario and I] really hate each other. I’m so sick to my stomach that I have to be by his side. You know, when [someone is] that unattractive, it’s just hard to be with [them].”
Of course she was only kidding. She went on to say, “[Mario] is the nicest guy ever. He’s great at what he does, so it takes some of the pressure off of me. I think we’re going to have fun. We’ve known each other for a while, so I feel comfortable around him. He’ll make it easy for me.”
The news that Khloe and Mario were named as the hosts for the live shows was just confirmed on October 16th. Apparently everyone knew about the decision except for Khloe herself. She said, “Everyone thought I was just BS’ing them. They were like, ‘So you got the job?’ And I was like, ‘I promise you, no one has confirmed anything with me. I would tell everyone if I did.’ I was just waiting for someone to tell me. But everyone knew before me!”
She continued, “I’m so nervous — I’ve never hosted before! What if I get kicked off the show because I say something so bad? That’s what I’m nervous about, but I can’t be anybody else but myself. I just have to control the language a little bit.”
Ryan added with regard to Simon Cowell, “He enjoys it when you get very close to his face. And he’ll get very distracted if you dress in something sexy, so I suggest you do…How do you think he and I got along for so many years?”
