'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.

Khloe is obviously trying, but visibly struggling. I find that when I discuss the show everyone points out how horrible Khloe is. I agree with another commenter that the show did not prep Khloe well. It was a risky move to use someone (a Kardashian, which Kris Jenner who is the only one with talent c

They need to dump one or both of them, and just have one host. It's just not working with the two of them.

I quit watching this show because
I can't stomach anything Kartrashian. They are all pig whores and Simon blew it big time by putting this foul mouthed sow on the show.

She should not use a teleprompter. She lost her personality and just seemed awkward reading the lines. It was painful to watch.....

Hey, look. The fact is Mario has experience and Chloe is famous for what? I really like her but this is not her cup of tea. Mario tried to save her from herself and had to save that monsterous show. I get it. She does what she does best and put blame on others for her shortfalls. Sorry, but not for Chloe Boo Boo.

Oh, that's why she sucked? I thought it was because she didn't know how to read. If their family valued education as much as they do posing for "fingers (and more) up the butt shots for the paps" and spreading their legs, and getting peed on during their sex tapes...they would have a family of doctors.

It was obvious to everyone that Lopez was reading Khloe's lines and trying for more face time. He's got experience, he knew what he was doing. Me Me Lopez...Shameless.
