Posted Wednesday September 19, 2012 3:08 PM GMT

Stepping out of her “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” realm, Khloe Kardashian is looking to beef up her resume as host of “The X Factor.”

According to an insider, the “Khloe and Lamar” babe is close to finalizing her contract with the talent show, and the announcement is forthcoming.

“Khloe has been offered the role but the deal is still being finalized. Simon wants her to have it. Now they’re trying to finalize the deal,” declared the source.

Simon Cowell previously told Ellen DeGeneres, “We have to find people who have a great chemistry, but Khloe is definitely up there in the running.”

Furthermore, Ms. Kardashian will likely get to work alongside “Extra” hunk Mario Lopez, as he’s been offered the gig as a co-host.
