    good day for Khloe Kardashian Mario Lopez

  • wakingup

    NO! I actually like Khloe, despite her being a kardashian, just because she’s really funny, but I cannot stand mario lopez. And doesn’t simon cowell remember the first season of American Idol?? Two judges will never work.

  • TJ

    Yeah I’ll watch, i like Khloe and the X factor is better than American idol these days.

  • Look

    yeyyy, i like them both

  • the_boyfriend

    I love Khloe and Mario is easy on the eyes so this is good news.

  • miss infamous

    A.C. Slater sure has come a long way

  • Stanley

    my best friend’s aunt brought home $12893 a month ago. she gets paid on the internet and moved in a $411400 condo. All she did was get lucky and apply the instructions revealed on this website (Click on menu Home more information)

    Happy for Khloe, maybe the next good new will be that she is not related to Kris Jenner

    1- Kim always thinks she made her sisters famous so always trying to outwit them with her own business

    2- The two sisters actually have more business sense than kim and none of which involve a porn movie

    3-the only way for competitive kim to get ahead is her sexuality based on a body bough from the surgeon

    4-Kim is as boring as concrete and thus the whorish behavior because without that no man can sit by that ugly inside shrew

  • Rose

    No offense to AC Slater, but couldn’t they just have Khloe?? I like her on her own and Mario is too cheesy on Extra…

  • Gisi

    Such a slap on Chrissy Teigen’s face and her overreaching.

  • Meh

    Uh, no thank you.

  • Good one!!!!!!!!!!

    i love how everyone actually loves khloe on this site its good to see positive comments for once

  • tasha

    So excited for Khloe! Khloe is gonna rock this gig!
    Couldn’t care less for Mario–I agree with Rose–he can be a bit cheesy.
    X-Factor is awesome this season with Britney and Demi. Love those two too!

  • Mel

    Isn’t it a bit ironic though to have a Kartrashian, famous for being famous, and having their eager mom mooch off her daughter being a hoe, work on a TALENT competition?!!!?? LOL dont get me wrong, out of that whole family, she’s by far the most entertaining, but she’s TALENTLESS. so…put her in a talent-filled environment????? LOL doesn’t make sense Simon!

  • Annie

    It’s funny how in just a few years Khloe went from being the plain sister to the pretty sister. Kim really screwed up her face.

  • Gisi

    @Mel: When they have Britney and Demi judging other people for, as you say, talent… how much higher can they really go for a presenter? It’s all just mediocre.

  • Sam

    I love Mario Lopez, so I’m so happy for him. If its got to be any Kardashian I’m glad its Khloe.

  • Kim

    Why did they have to drag Mario onboard he is so corny and nothing but a PC addition we’re tired of looking at him.


    YAAAAAY KHLOE…SHES AN OG…mario well i guess he’s easy on the eyes

  • Ava

    I’m really happy for Khloe. you could tell on the second season of the “miami” spin off show, she improved with her radio show. I wish her all the best!!

  • Setra

    I’m glad to hear that they’re both so excited to be added to the judging panel on next season’s X Factor. I think it’s safe to say that I’m just as excited! Both Khloe and Mario should be able to provide some very relevant feedback. I can’t wait to watch next season, I’ve loved this season thus far. X Factor always gives me and my DISH coworkers plenty to talk about. I like to record it on my Hopper each week with the PrimeTime Anytime feature because it allows me to set it up to record all prime time programming that comes on the four major networks, without the use of individual timers.
