Could X-Factor get a Kardashian host?

America, the Kardashians are here to stay. And if the latest rumor is true, you're going to be seeing a whole lot more of them.

Rumors are swirling that the new host of the X Factor is going to be Khloe Kardashian, who is considered the "funny" Kardashian. 


TMZ reported on Friday that Kardashian is the frontrunner to get the gig, after she nailed her screen test. Apparently Simon Cowell considers her a magnet for young viewers and that is the demo he is really going after. 

If hired, Khloe (who is married to NBA player Lamar Odom) would have to start right away, as the new season begins September 12 and 13.

Fox and a Kardashian publicist each had no comment.

Earlier today we reported that Cowell is "pissed off" that NBC's The Voice, a rival of X-Factor, is going head-to-head with his show next week, when both begin their new seasons. Poor Simon.

"It's very simple: They don't want people to see this first episode," he said. "I think it's mean-spirited and I hope and I pray that it backfires on them because this is one of the best shows we've ever made."

The X Factor has already signed Britney Spears and Demi Lovato to join Simon at the judges' table.

I think , or at least I was convinced that most people felt the same way. I love Simon but this call is way off in my book. I'm not a Voice fan, but if a Kardashian came on X, I may have to take another look at it. Similar to the Hilton girl's place in the spotlight...I just don't get it.

UGH. The Kardashians are on the top of my "people that need to go away" list.
