Sources have told the New York Post that Khloe Kardashian has not been asked to return as co-host to the X Factor. They are, however, reportedly asking Mario Lopez to come back.
Judge LA Reid has already bailed on the show. And you can either believe that she quit or was pushed, but Britney Spears won’t be returning to the struggling singing competition either. Reportedly, Demi Lovato is in talks to return to the panel.
The Post reports that, Cheryl Cole, who was dumped from the judges’ panel last year, is in talks to return to the show — possibly, “as part of a judging panel that would be comprised of Cowell and three younger women.” Can I just say EWWWW? The Post speculates that Cheryl’s return could be part of a settlement. She filed a $2.3 million lawsuit against the show last December, claiming they still owed her money. Hm.
Khloe leaving is pretty much a no brainer. But the return of Cheryl Cole? I kind of doubt it. At this point, FOX is probably unwilling to splash out big bucks for another pop star like Britney Spears, but I don’t think they’d gamble on Cheryl at this point.
What do you think?
