Khloe Kardashian is moving on with her life, both personally and professionally, in the wake of her impending divorce from Lamar Odom, so it comes as a surprise that she may be returning to some of her old blunders — like hosting The X Factor.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, who served as co-host of the show’s stateside edition with Mario Lopez for one disastrous season with back in 2012, is reportedly looking to get back on the horse again, but this time, she’s looking across the pond.
According to UK tabloid Heat (via TV3), Khloe’s pal Cheryl Cole is trying to convince Simon Cowell to give Khloe work as a judge on the UK edition of The X Factor, hoping she’ll fare better outside of America.
“[Cheryl] thinks she'd be really witty and funny and is really popular in the UK. She says having a good friend on the panel she can laugh with would be good for the show,” says an X Factor insider.
The source claims that Khloe is totally on board with the idea, hoping that it will help her ditch the drama she’s become used to in the states.
“Khloé's told Cheryl that working in the UK is exactly what she needs. She's been desperately trying to find an escape from LA and all the drama she's had there."
While we’re sure Khloe could pull it together as a judge on her second go round, it seems unlikely that she’d ditch her life in California, where she could likely rake in even bigger bucks, for the temporary gig. However, while it may seem shocking that Simon would ever give Khloe a second chance, it seems he has far more forgiveness in him as a boss than he did as an American Idol judge — he hired Cheryl back after firing her, after all.
Do you think Khloe should give The X Factor UK a shot, or should she put her hosting dreams on hold?
