Whomp whomp for Khloe Kardashian! She has been AXED from The X Factor. Fox announced yesterday that Mario Lopez is returning this fall as host but that Khloe Kardashian will not be joining him. Simon Cowell is in the middle of a turnover with his judging panel, too. While Demi Lovato is returning, Britney Spears and L.A. Reid will not. The network wished Khloe Kardashian well, stating: “Khloe Kardashian will not be returning to co-host The X Factor. We really enjoyed working with her and wish her all the best in her future endeavors.” Judge Simon Cowell stated, “I’m thrilled Mario is back for Season Three of ‘The X Factor.’ Hosting a live show and keeping the judges – especially Demi [Lovato] – in line, is not an easy job, but Mario is a pro and we are glad he’s coming back.”
If you missed it, we reported that Reese Witherspoon was arrested over the weekend and publicly apologized for her behavior after her husband, Jim Toth, was pulled over on suspicion of driving while intoxicated. But looks like she isn’t the only person with regrets. Apparently Reese Witherspoon’s husband Jim Toth feels awful that he involved her in the situation because he made a bad decision and it certainly made things worse that he dragged her into it. Plus, Jim Toth is embarrassed, blowing a .139 on his sobriety test; the legal limit in Georgia is .08. The arrest is going to make the couple stop and think about how much Jim Toth’s drinking plays a part in their lives, because apparently he’s a very big social drinker.
Talk about bad ways to find out that you are getting a divorce. When Real Housewife of Atlanta costar Porsha Stewart says she was blindsided by her husband Kordell Stewart filing for divorce, she meant it. She opened up to Andy Cohen and let him and the world know that just one week after Stewart defended her husband on the Housewives reunion special, she was totally blindsided and found out on TWITTER that the divorce was happening. She then went and confronted her husband, who was in the next room. Even worse now, Porsha and her estranged husband are still living in the same house and not speaking. AWKWARD!
Taylor Swift may think about getting back together with her ex-boyfriends but here’s one that she will NEVER get back together with: John Mayer. She was apparently furious at the Academy of Country Music Awards when she found out John Mayer was going to take the stage with her and demanded to go on earlier than him. Taylor Swift reportedly had a fit and just his presence irked her and made her bitter. Sourpuss! Move on!
Another big shocker this week has been the reports that Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are back together! Not only did Justin Bieber post a picture of the two getting cozy and then delete it, but they were also spotted holding hands, hugging and kissing. Well now, Selena Gomez’s friends are speaking up and are apparently furious that Selena Gomez is giving Justin Bieber another chance. They’ve been trying to warn her that he’s no good for her and that she should stay away from him. The issue, Selena Gomez loves the attention he gives her. Plus, Justin Bieber’s camp argues that Selena Gomez is great for him, making him be on much better behavior.
It took 20 years but it has finally happened! The Backstreet Boys have left their mark among the stars and were honored yesterday afternoon with their own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame! A.J.

This comes as some interesting news. Seth MacFarlane was a controversial Oscars host, some people loved him while others hated him. But guess what? He was asked to come back and host again next year! All that matters is ratings right? Plus, even though Seth MacFarlane said he’d never do it again, he’s apparently considering it! The problem is he's producing, co-writing, directing, and starring in another movie this year and might not have the time to do it.
Oh Miley Cyrus. We can’t keep up! One day her engagement with Liam Hemsworth is just fine and the next day, not so much.
