Khloe Kardashian

'X Factor' Deal Fell Apart

Mom Saved the Day

Kris Jenner single-handedly SEALED THE DEAL to make Khloe Kardashian the new co-host on "X Factor" ... right when negotiations were on the verge of imploding ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected to the deal tell us ... negotiations had come to a grinding halt because E! and FOX couldn't seem to work out a deal that would allow Khloe to appear on both networks.

We're told "X Factor" was getting ready to pull the plug on talks with Khloe ... when Kris Jenner got word of the hold up and decided to take the bull by the horns.

Sources say Kris "stepped in over the agents ... over everyone" and forced both networks to sit down with her and hash out a deal ... which they eventually did.

As one source puts it, "She just knows how to make sh*t happen."

We broke the story ... Khloe and Mario Lopez have both signed on as co-hosts ... and are expected to make their debut on the show in November.

Do people even watch X-Factor? That show is so obviously fake and badly scripted. I guess Khloe Kardashian will be used to that though since their crappy "reality" shows are just as badly scripted.

While this is nice "spin" for the KKlan, the fact is, NO ONE can tell ANY network what to do. In the grand scheme of things, NO ONE is THAT important. And to make the point, it didn't take long for Charlie Sheen to be tossed off his money making show.

I've never watched the show, but aren't the judges supposed to have some sort of talent?

High school drop out, and currently reigning American Bimbo, Khloe Kardashian as a co-host? ROFL!

In my opinion, the network could have saved itself some money, achieved the same result, and perhaps generated better interest, by hiring some random employee from the local California Department of Motor Vehicles.
