Ouch! The cuts of X-Factor staff might just be worse than the eliminations of contestants on the show!
Rumor has it that Season Two X-Factor co-host Khloe Kardashian will be the next to get the boot. It looks like the build-up to Season Three is gearing up to be very similar to that of last season, where Simon Cowell made several changes to the show's hosts and judging panel.
"They're asking Mario [Lopez] to come back, but not Khloe," a source tells the New York Post, although the news is not quite that shocking, considering Khloe faced major criticism for her lack of hosting experience throughout the season.

However, whereas last season Simon let most of his staff go, this time around L.A. Reid and Britney Spears both made their own decisions to part with the show and focus on their careers (although it was rumored that Britney would be cut from the panel anwyay).
There is still no word on where Demi Lovato stands, and an X-Factor spokesperson says, "The producers have not yet made the talent decisions for this year." However, even if Khloe and Demi do not have to be replaced, there is still great anticipation regarding who will step in for L.A. and Brit!
