Khloe Kardashian

E! Is Stumbling Block

For Hosting 'X Factor'

0919_khloe_kardashian_xfactor_e_logo_articleKhloe Kardashian may actually be a little too popular for her own good ... because we've learned E! is throwing up roadblocks in the negotiations for Khloe to host "X Factor."

Multiple sources connected to the negotiations tell TMZ ... "X Factor" producers cannot sign Khloe to the show unless E! gives permission  -- exclusivity is part of the Kardashian's contract with the network.

We're told the problem isn't so much that E! doesn't want Khloe to do Simon Cowell's show ... it's that Khloe would have to promote the program by spending a lot of time doing interviews, social media and making appearances, and E! is worried it might dilute Khloe's impact on their reality shows and also create time conflicts.

One source directly connected with the negotiations tells TMZ ... it looks like both sides will reach an agreement and Khloe will be able to host "X Factor," but the source added, "I wouldn't bet my house on it."

We are told, in the event that Khloe's deal falls apart, they would probably pick Mario Lopez as the second choice, but "X Factor" has its sights set on Khloe as a single host.

I think Khloe would make a fun judge. I may actually tune in.

I don't like the Kardashians but I think Khloe would make a good host. However if I had to choose between Khloe and Mario then it would be Mario all the way baby.

hmmm....that's rather interesting. I have always been a big fan of Britney's and she seems to be cleaning up her act and personal life recently. She's been through a lot and she got into the music and entertainment industry at such a young age. I was really shocked to hear how much she hates Demi Lovato! I wonder how the X Factor is going to get by this season.
