'X Factor'

Mario Jacked Khloe's Lines

Because of On Set Chaos

11/5/2012 4:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
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.

In all fairness, Mario Lopez has NEVER been one to share a stage with someone....far too arrogant and not enough talent,....BUT Khloe (of all the girls) 'actually' shows a personality and a sense of humor. Poor thing, she, for all these years has been run over by Kim's presence, and given a fair chance,....and now, deal with Mario Lopez?...Really? Maybe there's a chance we just might give her a fair shot. For cryin' out loud, Mario is a gossip reporter, how much talent does that take?,...AGT was live, and that's a tough gig,....and she did pretty good, let's just see if she can stay there,......step over Mario, Khloe,....show your best stuff,......and send your family back to Calabasas.

all about the money    

Ah yes I can see it now. Mario takes over the MC side of show and Khloe will be the personality LOL.

Khloe: So that was your song this week?
X-Singer: Yes
Khloe: You know your make up looks horrible but my sisters and I have a new makeup line maybe that could help you.
X-Singer: This isn't about makeup
Khloe: Ah so right you are, how about I get my sister Kim to help you with your singing...you know shes dating a music star now and she can make you a star!
X-Singer: Who are you again?
Khloe: I am the personality of the show my sisters and I are going to save the show and remain it to the K-Factor next year.
X-Singer: (Looks pleadingly into camera) Can I just get eliminated already?

She does have a BIG personality.Loud, aggressive, overbearing and more often than not, her mind is focused on gutter thoughts and vulgarity.(judging by the way she talks and behaves on their show). Most people don't like her vulgarity,whicjh seems to be their way of life. Pretty is as pretty does.

She should be dumped from the show. Just like the rest of the family she has no talent or personality. What she needs is her mother to stand next to her and read the Telepompter for her

Why does the entertainment industry insist on shoving Mario Lopez down our throats? Still? It's been 20 years and that creepy jackhole looks exactly the same. Should be clue #1. I'm convinced he's not even a person, just a carefully constructed plastic host-bot. He sucks. The end.

khloe is the only girl Kardashian i really like. shes much more down to earth than the others. I can relate more to her in regards to prego issues. i think people need to give her more credit and give her a chance. **** happens and anyone in her shoes at the moment would also feel upset! love ya khloe remember you do have people on your side!!

And the idiot mother wants to introduce the rest of the idiots in the same role of host.


Makes it easy to change the channel.
