The Word: Khloe Kardashian out on ‘X-Factor’

Khloe Kardashian has been booted off Fox’s “The X Factor,” while her co-host Mario Lopez will remain for the third season. “Khloe Kardashian will not be returning to co-host The X Factor,” the show’s producers said in a statement. “We really enjoyed working with her and wish her all the best in her future endeavors.” (Translation: Don’t let the door hit you on the way out, KK!)

Lopez will join  returning judges Simon Cowell and Demi Lovato, with at least one more judge yet to be announced.

“I’m thrilled Mario is back for Season Three of The X Factor,” said Cowell in a statement. “Hosting a live show and keeping the judges – especially Demi – in line, is not an easy job, but Mario is a pro and we are glad he’s coming back.”

Lopez, you sly, well-oiled, muscular fox. Who would have thought the dude who made sitting backwards in a chair popular would be the most successful graduate of “Saved By The Bell”?

Bynes’ behavior explained
So what’s the source of Amanda Bynes’ latest spate of bizarre antics during her stay in New York City? “Amanda’s increasingly disturbing behavior is related to the fact that she smokes
pot,” a source claims to Radar Online. “It makes her more paranoid and instead of mellowing her out, it does the opposite. Amanda begins talking faster and just can’t seem to sit still.” Bynes was most recently photographed walking the NYC streets with a massive scarf obscuring her face and head. Pot? Is that what they’re calling meth these days? I don’t know. I’m old.

More details on Ozzy
Ozzy Osbourne may have come clean about his recent battles with drugs and alcohol, but that doesn’t mean the public gesture was enough to patch things up with wife Sharon Osbourne, according to the Daily Star. “She just wants out at this point,” a source says. “Ozzy seems to think he can win her back, but Sharon isn’t so sure as she’s been living in a private hell.” Exactly what kind of a private hell are we talking about here? “He kept accusing Sharon of trying to kill him. It was heartbreaking for her,” the source says. “He was living in an imaginary world for most of the time and seeing a lot of things that weren’t even there. On occasions, Sharon didn’t even know where he was for hours and sometimes even days. He was running around in the same clothes all the time, not washing.”
Come on. None of this can be new for Sharon, right? She must be used to this by this point.

Reese speaks out on arrest
With the mugshot from her arrest in Atlanta for disorderly conduct making the rounds, Reese Witherspoon is speaking out about the headline-making incident. “Out of respect for the ongoing legal situation, I cannot comment on everything that is being reported right now,” Witherspoon says in a statement. “But I do want to say I clearly had one drink too many and I am deeply embarrassed about the things I said. It was definitely a scary situation and I was frightened for my husband, but that is no excuse. I was disrespectful to the officer who was just doing his job. I have nothing but respect for the police and I’m very sorry for my behavior.” Witherspoon reportedly got into an argument with an officer (she infamously played the “ Don’t you know who I am?” card) after husband Jim Toth was pulled over on suspicion of driving while intoxicated. Both were arrested and briefly jailed.
