Much of the chatter about Khloe Kardashian’s debut Wednesday as host of Fox’s “The X Factor” has focused on her wardrobe situation, with Kardashian’s sheer blouse and lack of a bra provoking Simon Cowell to offer a quip about the air conditioning during the show, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Kardashian talked about the “nipply” incident after Thursday’s show, saying Hurricane Sandy played a role, the piece reports. She also said she was OK with Cowell’s wisecrack.
“I don’t mind that he talked about it because it was there,” Kardashian said. “What happened was … everything got moved up because of the hurricane and my stuff got stuck on the East Coast, so the top I wanted to wear came in that day and I was like ‘Oh, perfect!’”
But the piece notes that the top didn’t arrive in time for the dress rehearsal. That meant the first time Kardashian appeared on stage in the nude-lined blouse was when the show was shooting.
“After stepping out into the lights, Kardashian reveals that while Cowell was pointing to his own chest, producers were yelling ‘areolas!’ in her ear,” the story reports.
Adds Kardashian: “I was like, covering it with my hair and I thought, from my angle, maybe it was just … nipply.”
