Britney Spears, Demi Lovato and Simon Cowell have a new addition to their "X Factor" family--and it's someone from the E! family:
Khloe Kardashian Odom!
Khloe has long been rumored as a front-runner for half of the planned male-female hosting tag team, and E! News confirms that, beginning in November, the "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star will share onscreen duties with a yet-to-be-named partner.
(While the season kicked off Sept. 12, the first batch of episodes have been, as always, comprised of pretaped auditions, giving producers leeway in the timing of hiring their hosts.)
Mario Lopez is all but locked down as the other lead emcee, but there's been no official word on a done deal for the former Saved by the Bell beefcake.
Khloe and her partner will replace last season's outgoing host Steve Jones, and while we have a feeling she's going to be pretty great in her new role, we know just the man Khloe can turn to for some valuable pointers should the need arise.
Right, Ryan Seacrest?
