Khloe Kardashian has the stage presence of a cucumber. Cold and a little green. Which may explain why she’s being booted from her hosting duties on The X Factor. An insider tells the New York Post, “They are asking Mario [Lopez] to come back, but not Khloe.”
Okay so she’s not being kicked off so much as no one is bothering to tell her what’s going on. It sounds like they’re just ignoring the problem and hoping it goes away. Not unlike an unplanned pregnancy.
LA hosting expert Marki Costello said of Khloe, “I am sure there was a big percentage of Khloe’s fans who followed her to X Factor. But at the end of the day, when she doesn’t know what she is doing, are you helping your show or hurting it? It was really hard for me to watch Mario with her. It made me, as a viewer, almost uncomfortable.”
Amateur, boorish and appalling people can deal with. But uncomfortable? Uncomfortable is that feeling you get when you need to poo but you’re only halfway through an hour-long team meeting. That’s how it feels watching Khloe host the X Factor according to Marki.
