Mrs. Kardashian-Odom has confirmed it herself!
Through a post on her official website, Khloe Kardashian announced what we already heard earlier this month: she and Mario Lopez are hosting the X Factor. This timing is convenient, as we are closer to the live shows. Read the co-host’s full statement below!
Hi loves. I’m sure you’ve been hearing the rumors and I’m SO excited that I can finally confirm the news — I am joining The X Factor as co-host with Mario Lopez!!!! I’m a huge fan of the show so I literally fell over in my chair when I heard that I was being considered for the role. The show already has such an incredible panel of judges and it is truly an honor to have been given this opportunity to work with them.
I’m thrilled, overjoyed and of course a little nervous about this new step in my career, and I can’t wait to get started. Wish me luck!
Mario Lopez also confirmed his hosting gig through a tweet, and judge/creator Simon Cowell made a statement to Ryan Seacrest’s radio show: “The worst kept secret in Hollywood is out. Mario and Khloé are our hosts. They will debut on our first live show in November and I couldn’t be happier.”
Wishing luck to my favorite Kardashian! :)
