Of course, when one celebrity judge leaves, it opens the floodgates for all of the speculation as to who should be passing out the compliments and critiques when the show returns for another season. If the newest rumors are true, Simon is going to be the sole dude with some very talented ladies at the judge's table.
You knew it was coming…we all did. Now that Kim Kardashian has finalized her divorce with Kris Humphries, she needs to find something else to boo-hoo about in the media. This go-round, she picks her second favorite topic…just how horrible hard and icky her pregnancy is. No wonder her baby daddy Kanye West is holed up at Paris Fashion Week, far, FAR away from this kraziness! You'd think she was the first woman ever to be uncomfortable during her pregnancy. Sympathy? I got nothin'!
Page Six reports on Kim's sit down with E!'s Ryan Seacrest as she pouts–yet again–about her pregnancy. On the Kardashianfamily special, Kim komplains, “I was waiting for this amazing experience where I could just do whatever I want, eat whatever I want, feel great, and it just hasn’t been that way.”
I have to admit that this one caught me off guard! According to RumorFix, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is itching to try reality TV hosting, and she has her immediate sights set on the X Factor. The site claims that Snooki has openly discussed the pros and cons of standing next to Mario Lopez on the X Factor stage with her friends.
It's official! Demi Lovato has confirmed that she is coming back to the X Factor for season three. As of right now, I'm pretty sure that Demi, Simon Cowell, and I will be the only people returning to the X Factor, but I can live with that.
"I am so excited to return as a judge and mentor on the X Factor," Demisaid. "Last season was an unbelievable experience and I really enjoyed developing personal relationships with the contestants and the panel."
Remember how just the other day I was writing about a source saying Khloe Kardashian Odom was getting axed from the X Factor (even after a professional hosting expert called her "awkward")? If so, do you also recall yesterday when Kim Kardashian promised to be more private going forward? Well, guess what? Apparently neither of those things are happening!
Of course, with "sources" and "insiders" you can never be too sure which side of the story is true. However, Kim flat out told a magazine that she wanted to keep more things to herself…perhaps she was only referring to things that pertain to herself. Obviously, she's more than happy to talk all about her family members' business!
Serious question…did any of you watch the X Factor? I kept up with some of gossip, but I prefer The Voice. It seems that the talent show just can't seem to get it together as far as judges are concerned (see you later, Britney Spears!), and now there are rumors that one of the hosts is on the chopping block.
Since brief stint on the show, Khloe Kardashian has been criticized for being awkward and orchestrating nip slips. There was even a rumor that was being paid by The Voice to do such a horrible job. That's bad! Of course, I highly doubt that Khloe was getting cash for her craptastic hosting (it would almost be better if she were…), but the poor girl has no experience other than ridiculous reality shows. Now, sources are alleging that she may not be back next season.
X Factor season two winner Tate Stevens has officially signed a record deal.
Tate beat out Carly Rose Sonenclar, one of Britney's Teens, for the $5 million prize after dominating the leaderboard most of the season. Following his X Factor win, Tate said of his first album, "It's gonna be country, and it's gonna be a lot of fun. I'm excited."
According to TMZ, Britney is leaving The X Factor to focus on her music. Britney is currently working on a new album with Will.i.am, Jay-Z, and Kanye West's producer Hit-Boy. It sounds like she hopes to go on tour, as well, once the album is finished.
