Jason Merritt/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — While Britney Spears reportedly mulls over filling one of the slots that followed the bloodletting on The X-Factor that left Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger off the reality show, rumor is another famous face could take the place of fired host Steve Jones.

The New York Post reports George Clooney’s current squeeze Stacy Keibler is in talks to join the show.

Says a source of the former wrestling star and Dancing with the Stars contestant, “her lack of experience in the music business may make her more appropriate as a host.  She looks fantastic and has bags of charisma.”

The unnamed source also weighed in on Spears’ negotiations, saying, “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.”
