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.

They should have hired Honey Boo Boo. Her ratings are higher. People are done with the Kardashian's. Sad to see the network exec's bullied by Mama K.

Did anyone notice how Robert Kardashians ex-wives,(who were spilling the beans) were mysteriously silenced (paid off?) . One of them said he hated K.J.
K.J cuckolded him repeatedly! If only ex-wives could talk!!

I wonder how Mario feels about being cast with "Miss FOUL mouth"? He will never say, because he wants the job.

Unflattering photos of her , on DailyMail, wearing garish red lipstick and slinky black gown. Looks like a fat Rikki Lake.Someone needs to teach her how to dress for her body type and the proper makeup to wear.

Odd how only the GIRLS in that family seem to get lucky in this business. Poor Rob Kardashian..if only he had a va'gine - then Mommy could make him a big ole superstar.
