It was just made official that reality star Khloe Kardashian and TV host Mario Lopez were set to take the reins for the live shows on “The X Factor USA”. Apparently the network was getting ready to pull the rug out from under Khloe until her mother Kris Jenner stepped in.
According to reports, Khloe’s deal with the talent competition was just about to fall through. The big wigs at Fox and E! were having trouble making things okay for Khloe to appear on both networks. That’s when Kris put her nose in and made things work. TMZ reports:
We’re told “X Factor” was getting ready to pull the plug on talks with Khloe … when Kris Jenner got word of the hold up and decided to take the bull by the horns.
Sources say Kris “stepped in over the agents … over everyone” and forced both networks to sit down with her and hash out a deal … which they eventually did.
As one source puts it, “She just knows how to make sh*t happen.”
Khloe and Mario will appear on the live shows when they are slated to begin November 1st. Tonight, however, the final 16 competitors will be unveiled…Stay tuned for our live recap of the show.
