Blessed be. We went through an ENTIRE DAY without X Factor or American Idol rumors. Alas, I knew it wouldn’t last. The latest X Factor hosting rumors come from E News:
I just got word that Nicole Scherzinger’s former bandmate Ashley Roberts is in the running to cohost the new season of X Factor.
Sources tell me that Roberts, 30, has already auditioned with producers. She’s apparently going to meet Fox network executives sometime this week.
I have no comment on this because I have no freaking clue who Ashley Roberts is. Maybe ya’ll do? The site lists a whole slew of possible hosts, which they are taking credit for revealing: George Clooney’s girlfriend Stacy Keibler, Khloé Kardashian Odom, Kelly Osbourne, Mario Lopez, BET’s 106 & Park star Terrence J, sportscaster Erin Andrews and radio personality Mike Catherwood.
I don’t remember half those names. But then, I’m not really all that invested in which boy and girl will eventually co-host the show. Also, Marc Malkin is the reporter who spread that false Darren Criss rumor. So grain of salt and all.
