Khloe & Mario Lopez
As Co-Hosts?

The stars are about to shine a whole lot brighter on The X Factor, now that Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez are expected to join as co-hosts.

Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez rumored for The X FActor

Are you tired of seeing Khloe Kardashian on television? Too bad, 'cause you're about to see her on another network. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star is reportedly close to closing a deal to co-host The X Factor with Mario Lopez.

You read that right — the show wants not one, but two hosts to emcee the reality singing competition, according to TMZ.

"We're told the final, tiny finishing touches are being put on their deals, but the announcement will be made this week," the website reported Tuesday afternoon. "We're told their salaries will add millions more to an already enormous talent budget... with Britney Spears in the lead at $15 mil."

CNN also confirmed the casting.

"Those two want to do it, and the show is keen to have them," a source told the network.

The big question: Will Khloe have the chops to make it as a host? We all know Lopez can command the camera, since he does it every day on EXTRA! Mrs. Lamar Odom, on the other hand, mainly sticks to reality shows, save for a guest spot on Law & Order: SVU in 2011.

Then again, the outspoken Kardashian has hosted her own radio show sporadically over the past few years. Live television is a lot different from radio, though.

So far, Lopez and Kardashian aren't saying anything about the rumors, but we expect to hear something before the end of the week. Look for the pair to make their debut in November, when The X Factor transitions to live shows.

Khole Kardashian is a horrible host. Let Mario do it on his own, he is a natural. Did you notice she copied everything he did. She is ruining the program, get her off the stage!
