Stacy Keibler is “in talks” to join ‘The X-Factor’ as a host because “she looks fantastic”

Poor Stacy Keibler. I’ve been worried about poor Oscar-Date Barbie ever since George Clooney lost Best Actor at the Oscars. Do you think he blames her? Do you think he blamed Elisabetta Canalis when he lost? Or Sarah Larsen? At some point, it’s like George has to admit it to himself: the problem isn’t with the girls. It’s with him. Anyway, my guess is that Stacy is probably on the way out. George went to Sudan right after the Oscars, and then flew directly to Washington. He didn’t bring Stacy to either DC or Sudan and then last week, he went stag to the big State Dinner. Michelle Obama put Clooney next to her! And Stacy wasn’t even there as Clooney got arrested. Poor Stacy.

But Stacy has hustle. She was in Barcelona over the weekend for “work” – or so says her Twitter. She was hired to “model” something. We’ll see. In the meantime, Stacy’s publicist managed to get this “rumor” as the lead item in today’s Page Six – Stacy might join The X-Factor?

George Clooney’s girlfriend Stacy Keibler is in talks to join “The X Factor” as negotiations continue with Britney Spears to be a judge on the upcoming season. We are told that actress, model and former professional wrestler Keibler is in secret talks to join Simon Cowell’s Fox show. The move comes after Paula Abdul and Nicole Sherzinger were fired, along with host Steve Jones, in January.

A source close to the show told us, “Talks are still ongoing with Britney, and she is asking for a lot more money, than was originally offered. But producers are confident Britney will realize this is a great opportunity for her to reinvent herself and accept their deal.”

Another source added, “Stacy Keibler is also in talks to join the show, but her lack of experience in the music business may make her more appropriate as a host. She looks fantastic and has bags of charisma.”

Producers are still searching for two stars to fill the two vacant seats next to LA Reid and Cowell. Spears was reportedly offered around $10 million to join the judging panel for “The X Factor USA,” but talks reached a deadlock when she demanded as much as $20 million.

Cowell said last week about Britney, “You’ll have to wait and see. I can’t confirm or deny anything right now. The truth is, we are talking to a number of people.”

Cowell added, “We are looking at a very famous singer and one very famous actress.”

And in a move that may help Keibler land a hosting role, he continued, “I always wanted a boy and a girl to host the show. And I like hosts who don’t kind of have a hosting background . . . it’s a different kind of dynamic.”

“Glee” star Darren Criss was reportedly offered but declined the hosting job because of his busy schedule.

Auditions are already under way for Season 2, but the start date has not been announced. An “X Factor” spokeswoman refused to confirm or comment on any speculation.

Stacy as a co-host of a failing reality singing competition? It kind of fits. I bet she would be nice to contestants, so she would have to be put with a bitchy cohost, just so there would be some drama. I honestly don’t hate this idea – it doesn’t offend me. Stacy (and all of Clooney’s girls) are made for reality programming. I’d rather Stacy find her niche on The X-Factor then see her try to make it as an “actress” or something.

And “She has bags of charisma”? Is that a thing? Is that a saying? Or is that Hollywood-speak for “She’s packing her bags from George’s house”?

    i think her and george have been over for a little while now.

    it will be a painful, embarrassing move back down the ladder for her. like elisabetta, she will probably be opening pizza joints in florida soon.

  2. Anne says:

    She has got the most amazing figure. I could spend the next 20 years at the gym and never come close. For that Stacy, I salute you.

    • Bwwana says:

      I agree, Stacey is the hottest girl george has ever had, great figure, great face. His looks are fading but his ego isn’t.

  3. brin says:

    LOL at “bags of charisma”.
    Is anyone not in talks for X Factor?
    She and Simon both have hustle and are great at self-promotion.

  4. Marjalane says:

    I’m not sure how old it was, but I saw her on Jimmy Fallon’s show last week, (or it might have been Conan’s- but no matter) Stacy Keibler is an idiot. Not smart, not engaging. She seemed like a big, eager, golden retreiver puppy- but not in a cute way. It pretty much made me think, “Yeah, she’s got to be a beard for George, because she is an empty vessel of knowledge.”

    If she’s a judge or host on Xfactor, we will look back longingly at Paula Abdul’s brilliance.

  5. PAgirl says:

    I bet this is Clooney’s parting gift to her before he dumps her..

    • bluhare says:

      With you on this one. She’s on her way out and he’s giving her a hand.

    • Eleonor says:

      Agreed, none of George’s girls ever worked while staying with him.
      And somewhere Elisabetta Canalis is laughing.

  6. Floridaseaturtle says:

    Has to planted. I actually like the singing reality shows, including X Factor. The saying goes, that a new business takes at least a year to get off the ground. I imagine that could include TV. That being said, like him or not, Simon Cowell is a VERY sucessful businessman. So is L.A. From what I understand, Simon did not want to see Paula go, but he relented during talks with the producers. Paula was exeptional last year, IMO. She was very lovable, diplomatic, and talented…and didn’t seem to be on Rx so much. Stacy? No offense at all, but seriously not in a ‘replacement’ category…of judges none-the-less. How absurd.

  7. Abigail says:

    This will never work. She is fairly famous right now thanks to her George connection, not bad to look at, and would be the “good guy.” However, a very big problem is that she would be required to talk. “Big, eager golden retriever” is the perfect description of her – her voice would deter people from watching. I’ve never watched X-Factor and would definitely not watch it with her. I would watch it to see Britney, but if Stacy was also on there, not so sure.

  8. brin says:

    No….that’s his competition, along with American Idol.

  9. mandy says:

    ahahahahahahahahahaha lol the americans !!!A light girl in this show oh not ca and to say that while george is in prison and fights for Sudan madam is in Barcelona is made the fete (to go to tha party …)!!What image of america!Go out with george and make photos nudes..

  10. Cody says:

    If it is true, that is what she wanted from walking the red carpet with George, a new job. I wonder if Simon is friends with George, so she had an in. I saw the hallmark movie that she was in and an actress she is not. She could be the next Vanna White. The only problem is, did you ever listen to her voice ,it is quite annoying, but she does have a nice figure.

  11. Monkey Jim says:

    The day one of Clooney’s escorts becomes the host of a prime time TV show is the day I flounce life (not really, just being dramatic). It’s like Pretty Woman for reals.

    But why oh why did they sack Steve Jones – I’m from UK and we don’t want him back, we’ve suffered enough. Fuck you Simon Cowell, fuck you!

  12. Nanea says:

    Wow, it’s all about the looks of anyone now, not about experience, charisma, or some other professional trait?

    If I were the girlfriend of someone, and he had the good grace to get himself arrested, no matter how premeditated, I’d make sure I’d be there in a heartbeat, lest people thought we’re done.

  13. FOREVER says:

    Nice purple dress, she is hot

  14. Guest says:

    After reading her deep thoughts on twitter, reading her advise on how to properly cleanse in magazines , brag about her great legs and back in interviews, seeing her fake smile and her silly talk on the red carpet, she will make the perfect host. Stacy is somebody I can’t wait to watch-not.

  15. Leikyn says:

    This show is already on it’s way out the door. Why shouldn’t she make a few bucks off of it?

  16. TheFactsR says:

    Simon has lost his flipping mind, Brittany with all her problems and immaturity and now Stacy with her lack of class and respect call girl escort…. that show is going down the toilet quick!

    Simon I thought you were smarter than you are coming off as with those two consideration.

    YOU could always draw the WWE group with Stacy and the immature ACTING out shave your ballbanging head group with Brittany.

    Just like your engagment Simon wrong on so many levels.

    • shawn says:

      Maybe a deal was cut with whatever network this show is on that if they give Keibler this payoff as part of her publicity contract, then George will give the network an interview in the future. Just speculating, but I’m sure there is some sort of deal other than just hiring Keibler on her own merits if she does in fact get hired for this job.

  17. Fyofeelings says:

    This just smells of a parting gift from Gorgy. Everybody is “in talks” with x factor what else is new.

  18. Dibba says:

    The perks of dating clooney. I bet if he took me out a few times I’d get a show!

  19. TheFactsR says:

    George Clooney brought his paid escort into the public for his demise! He went to the dog! Really!

  20. TheFactsR says:

    George Clooney won’t get a dime from this person! Sorry George I don’t give my money to Paid “Call girl escorts” BYE BYE

  21. Maritza says:

    I’d rather see her host DWTS instead but good for her anyway. She is kind and pretty, I’m sure she’ll do a great job.

  22. Ravensdaughter says:

    But she’s so vacuous!

  23. skuddles says:

    Ah yes, this is the part where George helps his piece find a job… Bet he’s already short listing applicants in search of that next special piece.

  24. samira677 says:

    Sudan and a State Dinner is not as much fun as Mexico and the Oscars for a person like Stacy. If she was asked to go I’m sure she turned him down.

  25. Guest says:

    I read in an interview that Stacy says, she works out 2 hours a day, between that and escorting George around how will she have time to host a tv show.

  26. crtb says:

    Bring Paula back to X Factor!
    She and simon are great together.
    I could care less about the host.

  27. Nico says:

    Producers have been quoted as saying “she’s got that ‘it’ factor, as in, we don’t know what ‘it’ is she does”.

  28. xploxite says:

    They should cause she looks fanstastic to look at,not to mention has a beautiful smile.

  29. angelacostumes says:

    She just needs to go back to the W.W.E. Her “talents” will much better appreciated there.

  30. shawn says:

    I don’t watch that show, and if this is the final payoff of her publicity contract with George which means I won’t have to see or hear as much from or about her if she gets this job, then I’m okay with it. I’m sure she’ll suck at it, but I won’t be watching it.
