The X Factor USA and Britney Spears closing in on deal
The X Factor USA and Britney Spears closing in on deal

There has been a lot of discussion about who the two new female judges are likely to be on the new season of The X Factor USA. One of the names that keeps on popping up is Britney Spears but a few weeks ago it seemed as though Britney had priced herself out of the running.

However, a source who is said to be close to the involvement of the negotiations has told Deadline that Britney Spears and Simon Cowell have come ever close to an agreement. It is believed that Britney will earn $15m to be the new judge on The X Factor USA, which surpasses the $12m earned by Jennifer Lopez on American Idol.
 
While there is still another judge to be signed on for the second season of The X Factor USA, it is believed that Simon Cowell and his team have focussed all of their efforts on getting Britney Spears to sign up for the show.
 
Some of the other names linked to The X Factor USA judging panel are Black Eyed Peas star Fergie, who has denied being interested in the role, and LeAnn Rimes, who is believed to have had preliminary talks with the producers of the show.
 
The X Factor USA season two is set to air on Fox in September.

Singer LeAnn Rimes has revealed that she has not and will not be writing a tell all book. It had been claimed that LeAnn was going to pen a book that would tell everything about her divorce, her marriage and would give her side of everything.

Rimes took to her official Twitter account to inform her fans and anybody else who was interested, that she has no intention of writing a tell all book. She tweeted. “So you all know, I’m blonde & there’s no ‘tell all’ book about divorce, marriage and ‘my side.’ I just laugh at [all] of this!”
 
LeAnn also recently informed her Twitter followers of her extremely busy schedule that she seems to have at the moment. She wrote, “LOVE my hair cut from Mr McMillian as always. Great date lunch w/ hot hubby, now onto meetings & doctor. Super fun :)”
 
It was claimed earlier this year, that LeAnn Rimes was approached by The X Factor bosses, who were hoping that the singer would join the judging panel on The X Factor USA. However, as of yet, no new judges have been officially announced.

It appears that The X Factor USA could be getting close to finalising a deal for one of the empty judges seats, while the other is also getting closer to being filled. The first seat looks almost certain to go to singer Britney Spears, who is believed to be in the final negotiations for the seat.

It has been claimed by Deadline, that Britney Spears has been offered a staggering $10m to be the new judge on The X Factor USA and it is believed that she is close to signing up for the show. It is believed that things are going so well that an announcement will be made next week, revealing Britney Spears as the new judge on The X Factor USA.
 
The second person who is looking ever more likely to being signed up, is singer LeAnn Rimes, who has been linked to the job for quite some time now. It is believed that LeAnn spent several hours in meetings with X Factor chief Nigel Lythgoe and talks are thought to have gone very well.
 
If Britney Spears and LeAnn Rimes are named as the new judges on The X Factor USA, it will certainly make for a strong and experienced line up. Then Simon Cowell will need to turn his attention to The X Factor UK and get those judges all in place for the new season.

There has been a lot of talk about the two empty seats on the judging panel of The X Factor USA since it was revealed that Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul would not be returning for the second season. Many names have been linked to the vacant roles as The X Factor USA judges and it has already been confirmed that Fox will replace the two outgoing women with two incoming women.

The latest person to have been mentioned as a possible judge on season two of The X Factor USA is LeAnn Rimes, who is reportedly very interested in the idea. It is claimed that LeAnn recently met up with The X Factor USA co-producer FremantleMedia North America, to discuss the terms of her joining the reality singing competition.
 
However, there has been talk of many people before Leann Rimes and none have yet to be confirmed. Some of the names mentioned so far include Mariah Carey, Katy Perry and most recently Britney Spears was said to be interested in joining The X Factor USA for season two. So far though, nobody has been confirmed, so we will just have to wait and see.

Singer LeAnn Rimes skinny frame has gone to war against all of the people who are constantly criticising her weight, claiming that she does not have a problem and that she has a healthy balanced diet and works out. LeAnn aimed a particular attack at E! host Guiliana Rancic after Rancic criticised the star.
 
Guiliana said of LeAnn, “She lost a lot of weight from all the stress in her life,’ she said. ‘She seems a little thin right now, and I think she looks great when she’s a bit curvier.” This infuriated Rimes, who took to her official Twitter account to respond to the comments.
 
She tweeted, “@GiulianaRancic hey, we should go to dinner sometime. You get criticized all the time for how small you are. You can see just HOW much I eat and maybe put a stop to this crazy “shrinking” once and for all…..oh, & then we should workout together! Good luck with your restaurant!!!!”
 
LeAnn also said in a recent interview, “For someone like me who is healthy, who works hard for my body, it’s very frustrating. I work out and take care of myself, and not in an over-obsessive way. People are calling me bulimic or anorexic and these are real issues and diseases that I don’t have.” It is not the first time that skinny LeAnn Rimes has had to defend her weight loss and it will not be the last.
