'X Factor'

Mario Jacked Khloe's Lines

Because of On Set Chaos

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 my opinon someone needs to dress Ms. Kardashion if she is on next season. The clothes she wore made her look very heavy and were far too short for her size. She is a very attractive woman and it did her a great injustice to see her in skin tight clothes that made her look that way. And what was up with the last night, those girls standing around Mario and Kloie looking st them like star stuck silly statues. It was stupid. Who dreamed up that idea?

Without being just plain mean, I think the show would be much better off with Mario as the sole host. He does a good job, and he's easy on the eyes, too. Khloe makes a lot of awkward comments that make me cringe, especially when she's fawning over Simon. The second thing that would improve the show, in my opinion, would be to replace Demi as a judge. She is way too immature to be in that spot, as is evident when she has her little spats with Simon and L.A. It's really embarrassing to watch.

Okay. I like khloe. She's the most likable Kardashian but she was absolutely useless in this show. She was awkward and weird. She held on to everyone when she was nervous

I was wishing there was an opportunity for us to vote on getting rid of one of the hosts. I think she was terrible as a host, I didnt find anything natural about her. One of the contestants, a few weeks ago, was voted off and was crying and she asked "how are you feeling right now?". How in Gods name did she think the person was feeling.
