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.

Two questions: why would anyone care what Khloe K's opinioin is? What makes her qualified to judge others? If I was a contestant, I don't think I would put much weight on her opinion, whether it was good or bad. Seems the Powers-That-Be are desperate.

KHLOE CAN BE ON WHATEVER SHE WANTS TO BE ON. HER MOTHER OF COURSE IS PISSED AS SHE DOESN'T GET HER PERCENTAGE OF KHLOES EARNINGS WHILE SHE'S ON THE NEW SHOW.

There is only one thing that I am glad about.......that it is Khloe and NOT Kim. I am so sick of hearing that b's name. At least Khloe isn't an idiot like her sister. If I never heard the word Kardashian again, it would be amazing.

All the KRAPDSHIANS are low life, ugly, talentless TRAMPS and I woudl not watch anything they are in. They are all just ghetto tramps that will do anything to stay in the public eye.
