Khloe Kardashian And X Factor


A few weeks ago I wrote about a rumor I heard where Khloe Kardashian was in the lead to host X Factor and predicted it would cause the end of the world as we know it and I don't feel fine. I figure if you are going to write a line that has an REM song in it, that you at least need to have the courtesy to somehow finish the rest of the line. Anyway, this is horrible news. Not just because it will give the swarm a real in to primetime network television, but also because people who are probably way better at hosting and have lots of experience are getting screwed because Simon Cowell has been told he needs higher ratings or the show is going buh bye. He has thrown everything into this season which is why he is so ticked off at NBC for throwing an episode of The Voice against X Factor. The show has become one giant stunt casting exhibition and when the show actually goes live and can't be heavily edited it is going to be one big train wreck waiting to happen.

No one actually likes Khloe.

I will be watching the Voice which has become my guilty pleasure. I love CeeLo and how wacky he is every week and Blake is hilarious. I don't mindthe other two, and Carson does a good job.

EmEyeKay said...

Jeesh I wish they'd go away already. But you never know who's waiting in the wings, so maybe I shouldn't say that.

I hate Khloe least of all, in that family.

FSP said...

Chewie!

True Em!

But do we need to read about them every.single.day?!

Jennifer H. said...

If we can't have an all out ban on the Kartrashians, can we limit news & pics of them to one day a month? They have no talent, they don't actually do anything of interest, so they aren't interesting.

I actially groan, and not in a good way, when I see a story about these people, Teen Moms, amd Real Housewives. These are boring, spoiled, obnoxious people.

OT:
Amber, if you come by this way, the church of Kris Jenner is:Life Change Community Church (founded by Pastor Brad Johnson and Kris Jenner).

I won't be getting out a checkbook for a donation anytime too soon...

MISCH said...

Enough this is a cruel joke

djphob said...

M--I do!

The only thing I don't like about her is that she was born a Kardashian.

Amber said...

OMG Agent. How many times do you think KJ has cheated on Bruce with Brad? She's set up quite the nice tax shelter for herself, hasn't she?

I think Khloe might actually do a decent job, and she can be pretty funny. It's clear The Voice is superior to any singing competition currently, so I can't blame Simon for trying to pull a Hail Mary.

@Agent
Does that mean if they funnel money into their "church" it is tax exempt?

Frufra said...

@Agent, Amber - she seriously co-founded a church? What the hell, man? I'm off to google. This is beyond the pale.

Frufra said...

Help me Rhonda. When that Brad dude's picture popped up on the website, I had a lifetime of flashbacks to all the smarmy preachers I've had the displeasure of knowing. Sweet Jesus. Agent, where did you learn that KJ is involved? Or is that common knowledge, and I just don't know cause I've never seen the K shows?

The church meets in a Sheraton hotel.

Lola said...

I like Khloe fine. In my extraordinarily limited experience in watching them on tv, she seems funny. Shoot me, but I kinda like Scott too (yeah, I realize is kind of a dick). The rest of them are insufferable.

Lola said...

okay...Mason and the new one are fine too (poor kids)

figgy said...

I can't blame Kris for cheating on Bruce...after all, she isn't a lesbian.

Hazeldazel said...

OMG, you guys didn't know about the Kardashian church?!? Yeah, it's totally how they protect their money from taxes. So when Kimmy is saying how she's always giving money to charity... uh, trick fuck you. you're giving it to yourself to fuckover the IRS.

hunter said...

Are you seriously serious about a Kardashian church?!?!!! Say it isn't so...

Frufra said...

Wow, this church angle takes them from my I Don't Give A Shit list to my actual Shit List. Disgusting.

Frufra said...

If y'all have any more poop on this church angle (links, articles), I'm all ears. Wow.

SusanB said...

Why isn't the IRS looking into this "church"?

califblondy said...

I confess, I stood outside with the adoring crowd at Kardashian Khaos in Vegas when she made an appearance recently. $160 to get inside for a picture with her and no, I didn't do that. There was a big scene with the paps following a fake Kim who tried to get through the crowd, which I'm sure was a total set-up to create buzz.

I blame the bff, she loves the show.

trudi said...

It's good to see the cocky Cowell replaced by the nervous insecure Cowell.

auntliddy said...

Simon has to power the f diwn, and realize its a show that is going to be *shudder* -sucessful. Not a phenom, nit a smash, not a life changing event, not a mondter hit. Simon, remember, its a f*cking tv show. Cant raise the dead or heal the lepers.

djphob said...

Did y'all see the pic of Kimmie w her white contouring makeup on? Girl must wear a year's worth of makeup every day.

auntliddy said...

And kloe, while stunningly unqualified to host the show, fits in with the rest of the no talents on tv.

EmEyeKay said...

YES PLEASE: links about church. I didn't know (tho someone mentioned it earlier this week, I think).

All about Eve said...

Please go away Kardashians!!!! ALL of you!!!

parissucksliterally said...

I won't watch either of those shit shows.

christopher said...

of all the K's i think she coolest,

but,

she has no experience. at all.

why not a male judge? why not someone who knows talent.
simon is not thinking clearly-he needs to focus on long-term viewers and the actual performers,not the celebrity judges!

why not some behind the scenes expert- who can get the respect of the audience and actually help with the reputation/integrity of the acts

personally with KK i think the whole direction of the show is straight to cancellation

hollywood dime said...

I'm sorry, but the writing is so shitty in this post that I'm confused as to whether khloe got the gig or if there's a rumor about her maybe getting the job.

smashbash said...

What they are doing is federal tax evasion and they shit should be investigated. It boils my blood they are getting away with this.

DewieTheBear said...

As much as is possible to have any positive feeling towards a member of that family, I kind of like Khloe. She come across like the only one who actually says what she's thinking or feeling, and not what Mama Kris' script demands she say.

I was flipping around last night and came upon an episode where Kim was insisting that she was the only child who was working in Robert Kardahsian's law office in the time leading up to his death. Khloe interjected to remind her that she (Khloe) was there as well, and the absolutely bitch-face that came over Kim's face as she continued to deny that Khloe was there was priceless. Kim was positively pissed that her selective memory was being called out on the record.

None of this is to say that Khloe is qualified (or "kwalified) to be on X-Factor, but if we could rid the world of all but one Kardashian, Khloe would be in my keeper league.

Rick Wrinklebottom said...

So, Khloe was born a man, right?

Agent**It said...

EmEyeKay

For starters:

I'm thinking of opening my own church in 2012 Dec 1st. Something along the lines of :
The Church of Fred Mertz (that's for you, Robert) or The Church of What's Happenin' Now (Flip Wilson, RIP) :)

Note: Dec 1st because y'all need to will your money to my church in case the Mayans were right, and I'm left behind:)

jaariel said...

Simon is delusional at this point. The market is way over saturated with talent shows. AI, AGT, SYTYCD, DWTS, the Voice, Duets, something on E to be opening acts, and that's just off the top of my head. Simon's X Factor is doomed to fail... It's also easily confused with AGT due to the large X buzzers & judges. And they're all based on UK shows anyway.

car54 said...

I think Khloe will do ok on this show. She's had a radio show, all she has to do is stand and talk---the host last season was not very good (to the point it was pretty funny) so I don't see why she couldn't handle it.

I think the Voice will kick Simon's ass. I will dvr it til i know if everyone on it is 14 again--I am tired of the crying children on talent shows that Simon does.

KY Redhead Grrrl said...

I have to watch X-factor to see how Sophie Tweed Simmons did with her audition...seriously check out the youtube of her singing "Take Me Away."

Have to confess have never really watched Idol, Voice, AGT or X Factor...but I have the most awesome suggestions to fill the Idol judge slots.

1-Keith Urban, yes. Make him more relevant, Nicole freaks out.

2-LEANN RIMES....

3-Honey Boo Boo's mama June (my answer for all of life's problems this evening.) Well that and a glass of wine....

Seriously, could you IMAGINE????

Jazzy said...

I agree with Jaariel, its waaay over saturated. The Voice is the only show doing well right now. Besides, when has stunt casting saved a show over the long run ( Ellen, J-Lo)? The talent show format is dying fast. I think even with Mariah, Idol will be going off after the contracts are up.

I wasn't planning on watching X Factor, but if Chewbacca is on it I KNOW I won't.
