Khloe Kardashian has just been fired from the X Factor USA. Dun dun dun. Fox hasjust released a statement stating that Khloe won’t be returning as an X Factor host, but Mario Lopez will. They don’t really give a reason for firing her, simply stating, “We really enjoyed working with her and wish her all the best in her future endeavors.”
Ok, so this could mean one of two things: Khloe left of her own free will, or [the likelier choice] Khloe got fired. If she did indeed leave of her own volition, that means that there were personal reasons for her to leave that she didn’t wish to share. However, in this scenario, Fox would not have released a statement simply stating that they wish her ‘luck in the future’. Also, knowing the Kardashians and Khloe, they would have leveraged this incident already and she would have been hinting about it for quite some time now if it was initiated by her.
For all intents and purposes, this came as a shock to her and her fans [are there any?] of the X Factor. Personally, the show’s a lot better off without her. Her co-host Mario Lopez actually has charisma, charm, and is good at hosting the show, all three of which Khloe seems to lack. Therefore, we’re calling a spade a spade and stating that Khloe getting fired. That statement’s certainly a dead giveaway, and Fox is taking the professional route here.
However, I expect Khloe to do some damage control and leak ‘reports’ about how she was the one who initiated the split and how this was all her idea. Nevertheless, there could be a lot more reasons for Khloe getting fired than a simple case of not being good enough. Unfortunately, the Kardashians remain as famous as ever – so it’s definitely not because of decreasing media interest. However, we’re sure to hear more from both sides within the next few weeks, so stay tuned for more updates from CDL.
