Khloe Kardashian is officially leaving The X Factor after hosting the show for one season, the show’s producers confirm.

“I’m thrilled Mario is back for Season Three of The X Factor,” Simon said a statement. “Hosting a live show and keeping the judges – especially Demi – in line, is not an easy job, but Mario is a pro and we are glad he’s coming back.”

    Happy for Mario, he is a fabulous host and can handle it on his own. He will even be much better on his own. That two host thing just didn’t work. And have to admit I am hoping all the K family will be off TV.

    Not surprised at all. Khloe was horrible hosting. She had no training outside of being herself on her various reality shows. Mario doesn’t need a co-host. He is great on his own.

    No, she was bad.

  • Whee

    Come on, everyone knows she sucked. LOL The surprise would have been if she returned (which most knew would NOT happen)

  • an opinion

    These Kardashians are all about looks and personality. The have no real talent.
    Kim can’t act and Khloe can’t host. They should stick to reality tv.

  • lala

  • Hmm

    I really wanted to see her get better at this…she was great when she co-hosted the Kardashian takeover on Chelsea Lately.

  • essie

    Tweeting new highlights was just the start of a sumemr-long love affair with gradually lightening her hair for Demi Lovato, who has now returned to her original dark brunette color in time for fall! Over the weekend the star turned out at a Mexico City press conference for Camp Rock 2 with dark brown hair color that rivaled that of costar — and former boyfriend — Joe Jonas. And while we’ve loved seeing Demi play around with lighter hues, we think that the new color is ideal for the cooler weather. But what do you think? Tell us: Is Demi better as a brunette, or do you think she should lighten up again?
