[Blind Gossip] This woman – who we are confidently predicting will never be nominated for an Oscar – used to be on a very popular TV show… from which she got the boot.
Frankly, she deserved to be fired. She just wasn’t very good in her role.
She is taking the dismissal hard. Even though she is on another television show, she really thought that her new role was going to be her break into the big time.
In an attempt to drown her sorrows, she drank her way through more than one Oscar party in the past week. Although she is not a small person, she couldn’t handle her alcohol, and she couldn’t keep it together. She tried, unsuccessfully, to muscle her way into conversations with power players in the hopes of landing a new job. Unfortunately, nobody really wanted to talk to her, and she wound up leaving drunk, discouraged, and annoyed.

Khloe Kardashian was officially fired today from her job as co-host of The X Factor. No big surprise there. Mario Lopez was all the host the show needed, and Khloe simply didn’t add any value to the show.
We learned back in February that Khloe already knew at that time that she was going to be getting fired from The X Factor.
She then proceeded to get sloppy and unprofessional at several industry events during Oscar week. Khloe couldn’t hold her liquor or hold in her desperation in as she worked the room.
Now, we don’t know if she got drunk that week because she was depressed about getting fired; or because she is a lightweight; or because she is stressed about the identity of her father (see One of These Things Is Not Like The Other); or because she is having trouble conceiving; or because her husband Lamar is allegedly cheating on her; or because being a Kardashian is simply enough to drive anyone to drink. Yes, there are a lot of possible reasons why she drank that week.
And we also don’t know if the power players dissed her because the party was focused on people in the movie industry; or because Khloe was drunk; or because she has no employable talent; or because real actors and directors and producers despise reality stars; or because interest in the Kardashian brand is waning. Perhaps it is a combination of all of the above.
Whatever the case, that week was a disaster for her, and she was a hot, drunk mess.
Now on to the details of her firing. From Deadline:
The Extra co-host Mario Lopez is coming back for another season hosting Fox’s The X Factor, but Khloe Kardashian is not. “Khloe Kardashian will not be returning to co-host The X Factor. We really enjoyed working with her and wish her all the best in her future endeavors,” X Factor producers said today.
Both Lopez and the E! reality star were named as the new hosts of the competition series’ second season in October 2012.
A seasoned hosting pro, Lopez easily fronted the show but Kardashian struggled, earning the mockery of many viewers.
In today’s announcement about Lopez’s return, X Factor’s main man made no mention of Kardashian’s departure. “I’m thrilled Mario is back for Season Three of The X Factor. Hosting a live show and keeping the judges — especially Demi — in line, is not an easy job, but Mario is a pro and we are glad he’s coming back,” Simon Cowell said in statement.
Lopez joins Cowell and fellow judge Demi Lovato as the only regulars coming back for the third season. Lovato’s return was announced in March. After one season, Britney Spears exited officially in January. Veteran judge LA Reid said last year that he was out too. Cowell is now the only remaining judge from the show’s first season. No replacements have been announced for either Reid or Spears.
