Khloe Kardashian’s hope for a respectable entertainment job with a big paycheck to boot on Fox music show “X Factor” apparently has been dashed. A new report claims she’s been fired, although the show says no personality decisions have been made yet.

Kardashian, 28, was a wild card the moment she was offered the job. She had no hosting experience and was forced to do live television right off the bat, which is tough for even experienced presenters.

Insiders say she didn’t help her own cause when she walked out on stage for her first show without a bra. Between the television Klieg lights and the cool studio temperature, let’s just say her little men were at full attention and quite visible.

Judge Simon Cowell, who owns the show, sat red-faced in his chair, obviously surprised by her outfit. He tried to make light of her exposure, but the incident proved awkward and embarrassing.

“I think the air conditioning is on high tonight looking at Khloe,” he tweeted afterward.

Khloe later apologized and tried to explain away the mishap.

“In my room with the dressing room light you cannot see a thing. We were rushed getting on stage… and then I hear in my ear like, ‘You’ve got to fix your shirt,’ and I was like, ‘It’s double sided tape, what are you talking about?’ and they were like, ‘No, your whole areola is out.'”

To make matters worse, the show airs during family viewing hours. Khloe also appeared nervous at times and unsure about what to say. And when she tried to be spontaneous, her remarks were often awkward or off-color.

Then, there was the time she plopped on Simon’s lap and asked him if he felt excited, an obvious reference to his male member.

Plus, she had the regular Kardashian baggage to deal with. Sister Kim Kardashian is one of the most polarizing personalities on the planet. While she has a huge following, she also has a huge number of detractors.

Some where irked by the sneaky suspicion that the Kardashians were trying to use the show to promote their own brand. Kim and Kourtney suddenly became regulars in the audience and became a distraction. Even Kim’s boyfriend Kanye West showed up. It seemed like they were trying to take over the show.

Finally, Khloe and Mario Lopez were mismatched as co-hosts. She towered over him in heels, which had to make him feel conspicuous.

At least Khloe won’t suffer the indignity alone. Judges Britney Spears and L.A. Reid are also exiting. For now, it’s back to “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.”
