Khloe Kardashian has been canned as a co-host on Fox’s The X Factor, according to The New York Post Monday.
“They are asking Mario [Lopez] to come back, but not Khloe,” a source tells the paper.
As RadarOnline.com has previously reported, last October, Khloe, 28, was named with much fanfare as a co-host to The X Factor, along with Lopez, as creator/judge Simon Cowell worked to revamp and revitalize the fledging talent competition show.
Khloe came to the table with no hosting experience, and from the get-go, she appeared nervous and ill at ease, forcing Lopez to shoulder more and more of the hosting duties, as the show progressed.
Kardashian’s exit comes on the heels of judges L.A. Reid and Britney Spears also leaving the show, which continues to struggle to find a wider audience.
Replacement judges have yet to be officially named, although there are rumors that fired British judge Cheryl Cole could return to the program.
