Khloe Kardashian

'X Factor' Deal Fell Apart

Mom Saved the Day

10/17/2012 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

Is she amazing or what?? I mean really not only can she get jobs for her talentless girls, she can save a delicate negotiation why isn't everyone in Hwood using this genius? . Money is all that matters, and just because it's on TV it looks like they have it all. Even that face-lifted husband of hers has lost any drive, saying his girls don't need to go to college, they already work! Nice low expectations there from a former olympic athlete.

Never watched it and knowing that nasty pimp momma made it happen makes it a sure fire miss, too many "talent" shows, all of them equal burnout.

What talent does she have that would qualify her to judge anyone? Phuckin hate the Kardashians!!!!!!!!

The timing works out just fine. I don't find any of the Xfactor "talent" interesting. So just when Khloe arrives it'll be time to switch to The Voice anyway.

Wow, the Karsdashian's have a lot of hate...
I actually like them and I think Khloe will make a great host (not judge). She has a big personality and says it like it is. She seems very sweet with Lamar. As for Kris she is a money grubbing fame loving woman so I have no doubt she stepped in.

Of course Kris Jenner worked out the deal. That's what a pimp does to its hoes.

I dont blame Kris Jenner at all- She needs her 10% commission off the deal, to pay for more plastic surgery & keep fix her aging face....

And we don't have to think long to figure out why most of her kids are fkd...unreal!

Oh I bet she "single handedly sealed the deal".....right under the table during the meeting.

Not like it is out of the ordinary for that family....
