DRAMA On American Idol Set

sp32-20081215-111119

GUESS WHAT!  There’s going to be all kinds of dramatic and awkward and uncomfortable tension on the AI set this season, starting now.  You know why? Because Paula Abdul apparently told OK Magazine that she thinks having a fourth judge blows. She said, “Kara and I have known each other for years and we get along great.  But we tried four judges before and it doesn’t work.” 

I would beg to differ, seeing as how Kara has been pretty cool so far this season, and balances out Paula’s drunken stupor quite effectively.

Anyway, Paula went on to say, “It takes so much time for each of us to give our opinion that it slows down the pace of the show.”  You know what slows down the pace of the show?  When Paula starts rambling incoherently about moths and lemon trees or whatever it is that she’s daydreaming about during the performances.

As you might expect, Kara was none too pleased to hear all of this.  She told Access Hollywood,  “Paula has a right to her opinions, but I was disappointed by her comments, and hurt that she did not address them to me in person.  I am proud of my contributions to the show and remain excited about the rest of the season.”

Kara: 1
Paula: -20

So? What Say You?

For those of you watching American Idol right now, what is the vote on Kara DioGuardi – the new judge?

I think I like her.  Mr. Mock and I haven’t yet decided if we think she’s attractive.  At some angles she is very pretty, and at others she’s kind of like Katharine McPhee’s not-as-attractive sister.  Mr. Mock is going to cringe when he reads this, because he wouldn’t necessarily appreciate anyone knowing that he’s paying any attention to this show.  In his defense, it’s kind of against his will.  He’s in our favorite room of the house, trying to concentrate on a book, and yet Simon will throw out some of his famous insults and it’s impossible to ignore.  You can’t really blame him for being distracted.

Anyway, I thought I’d gotten over my obsession with this show.  In fact, I haven’t even really been looking forward to it all that much.  I even thought, “I’ll just play some Wii tennis and then if I feel like tuning in, I will.”  So I wii’d, and then tuned in, and you guys, I am officially once again OBSESSED with this show.  I love it so much.

Let’s watch it together this season, mockers.  Join me, won’t you?

UPDATE:  I am not ashamed to admit I got a little weepy at the blind dude.  He was SO PRECIOUS and so good.  I hope he does well.

Important American Idol News Update

See this chick? Yeah, I didn’t know who she was either, but US Weekly is reporting that she is going to be the FOURTH judge on American Idol next season. As in a fourth REGULAR judge.  As in there all the time, alongside Randy and Paula and Simon.

Her name’s Kara DioGuardi and she’s apparently a songwriter.  I am hoping she’s also totally psychotic, because that would add a nice element to the show.  In fact, I want to see her catfighting with Paula.  I want hair pulling, and drink stealing, and eye scratching.  And lots of tears. 

Can. Not. Wait.
