'X Factor'

Mario Jacked Khloe's Lines

Because of On Set Chaos

EXCLUSIVE

1102-xfactor-khloe-kardashian-mario-lopezMario Lopez couldn't get enough of that teleprompter on "X Factor" this week, because he was reading Khloe Kardashian's lines and screwing her up in the process ... but sources tell us it wasn't his fault.

Sources connected with the show tell us Khloe got "really upset" because Mario jacked her lines several times, reading his lines and then reading some of hers ... and screwing up her timing in the process.

Khloe forced the issue with producers after Thursday's show, wondering aloud if he was doing it on purpose.  After a short discussion, it became clear to Khloe that Mario was on the up and up -- there were glitches in the production that confused everyone and things got a little out of control during the live broadcast.

Now here's what's really interesting.  Khloe has heard what we've been saying -- that producers were insane to make her read a teleprompter, because it robs her of her personality.  Fact is ... it's hard for a novice to read a prompter.

We're told Khloe is open to leaving the hosting duties to Mario, and taking on the personality-driven interviews without a teleprompter.

Sounds like a good idea to us.

How about this. Send the stupid, talentless tramp and her pimp mother and slutty sibling packing. Fire her and possibly save the show. Otherwise all of the KRAPTRashinas are talentless whores who will pimp any product, show or service for a paycheck and publicity..

Of course it sounds like a good idea to you TMZ ... you're so far up Kardashian butt you can't see daylight! At least it looks like she didn't go for the cheap wardrobe malfunction this week ... Mario - keep up the hosting duties. You've always been so good at that :)

I think a better idea is to dump her. She's awful. She looks like a sl*t and she can't communicate to save her life. She is absolutely not "host" material. Mario is fine and can handle it alone. He's probably wondering why he got himself involved with such a mess of a show.

Dude is a known a-hole and a seasoned host who knows how to read a teleprompter.

Pimp that show, TMZ.

The Kardashians and Lindsey Lohan must be related. The blame is on everyone except themselves. Don't they rehearse before the show. If she stop acting like a WHORE she could keep up. Still when you have No Talent it doesn't matter.

How on earth Mario Lopez still gets opportunities to be on television in any fashion is beyond me. He has nothing to offer in today's media. He's boring, extremely flat and not entertaining in the least. He has zero personality and brings no life to anything he does.
