Someone should really tell Khloe Kardashian that sheer tops and live television go together like oil and water.
The reality star took the stage alongside Mario Lopez on Wednesday as one-half of the new X Factor hosting duo. And oh boy, what a first impression!
Kardashian’s left nipple inadvertently poked through her sheer purple blouse as she gabbed it up with contestants on the Fox talent series.
“I think I had a little nip action earlier LOL,” the reality star tweeted midway through the show in response to judge Simon Cowell’s joke tweet, “I think the air conditioning is on high tonight looking at Khloe.”
Khloe’s used to such slip-ups.
In June 2011, Khloe appeared on the Fox News AM gabfest Fox and Friends for more than six minutes with her right nipple in full view through her sheer black top. The wardrobe malfunction of Janet Jackson proportions went undetected the entire time Mrs. Lamar Odom and her sister Kourtney were on set promoting the sixth season of E!’s Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
Of course, the Twitterverse wasn’t nearly as kind. Khloe’s overexposure was a social networking sensation, with several web surfers hit the Interwebs to tweet up the incident.
Critics delivered an even more scathing critique of Kardashian’s hosting talents — ahem…or lack thereof.

“Odom came across like the novice she is, shouting her lines despite the mic clutched in her hand and making awkward small talk with contestants and judge and executive producer Simon Cowell…Odom sounded like an oddly flirtatious schoolgirl as she introduced Cowell as “Mr. Sexy.'”
