The X Factor Gives Khloe Kardashian The Pink Slip
After months of speculation about Khloe Kardashian‘s future as co-host of FOX’s The X Factor, it was revealed earlier today that the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star has been relieved of her duties on the reality talent competition. The show’s producers said in a statement:
“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.”
Khloe made her debut as one of The X Factor‘s hosts alongside of Mario Lopez last October. The 28-year-old never seemed to warm up to her X Factor gig, and often appeared to struggle with the live TV format of the show.
Mario, who previously hosted shows like Extra and MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew, will return for X Factor‘s third season.
