New American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi is getting married. DioGuardi and Mike McCuddy were engaged December 8 while on vacation in Mexico. No wedding date has been planned. McCuddy is a former school teacher-turned-general-contractor. And, he's also a dad, according to a New York Times bio of DioGuardi, meaning she won't just be a new wife, she'll also be a new step-mom.
Just hours before the premiere of American Idol's eighth season, a Fox head hancho scoffed at the suggestion that judge Paula Abdul might be ready to make her exit after this season. The chief said, "We want to have her as long as the show goes."
This is GREAT from the L.A. TIMES
THE REAL RULES OF AMERICAN IDOL AUDITIONS
Contestants must have logged at least 45,000 hours singing in front of the mirror, at family dinners and in church.
Contestants must know with metaphysical certitude that they are destined the be the next American Idol.
Contestants must arrive at the audition looking approximately 75% to 82% worse than they plan to look three months hence. Extra points for stringy hair, skin conditions and slouching posture that can be corrected during the middle rounds.
Contestants must arrive with a very close family, preferably including one grandparent who played a critical role in their upbringing.
Contestants are encouraged to arrive in the midst of heartbreaking family tragedy.
If auditioning in the "Painfully Bad" category, contestants will register shock and disbelief at their failure to earn a ticket to Hollywood. When leaving the studio, they will be certain to curse the judges for their blindness to true talent.
Contestants should at all times exhibit deep religious beliefs but be careful not to name the religion that they feel deeply about.
Contestants with a modeling past may use their appearance to earn a ticket to Hollywood via flirting with Judge Cowell. However, such contestants will exit the season at 18th place and never be heard from again.
Likewise, brawny male contestants singing romantically to Judge Abdul will be granted a ticket to Hollywood, where they will be quickly eliminated from the competition.
The "No Goths" regulations remain in effect.
If planning to win the competition, do not come intending to audition but merely to support a sibling or friend.
In pre-interviews, it is important to emphasize that you are grounded, family-oriented and a down-to-earth wholesome young American.

If you have no connection to the outside world here is what's going on in the world, and if you let me I must comment on everyone, here goes:
Sony will likely suffer an annual operating loss of about $1.1 billion. [But it's cool -- they'll just ask for some bailout money from the United States.]
American Idol is returning for its eighth season. [This year contestants can win a million dollar recording contract and the opportunity to stalk Paula Abdul.]
One in every two hundred kids is a vegetarian. [And 199 of every 200 kids is a Twinkitarian.]
Police have arrested a California man for allegedly arranging to sell his 14-year-old daughter into marriage in exchange for $16,000, 100 cases of beer and several cases of meat. [I won't know how to judge the man's actions until I know what kind of beer he was trading.]
Police have arrested a California man for allegedly arranging to sell his 14-year-old daughter into marriage in exchange for $16,000, 100 cases of beer and several cases of meat. [Which should make the father/daughter dance this year a little weird.]
Only days after Prince Harry was in the hot seat for using a racist term his father, Prince Charles, now finds himself in the same predicament after reports surfaced of him using a similar insulting phrase. [Well, I can pretty much guess who won’t be invited to the presidential inauguration.]
A man wanted on financial fraud charges tried to fake his own death by parachuting out of a plane. [Number seven on the Bernie Madoff Things To Do List.]
Howie Mandel was treated at a hospital with an irregular heartbeat. [The worst part was having every doctor and nurse make the say corny joke -- "Bill or no bill?"]
A new report says that by 2012 the U.S. will overtake Italy as the world’s largest consumer of wine. [Yeah, we’ll all be drinking to try forget that we can’t make our mortgage payments.]
How many of us are going to miss the Gee Dubya? I know there are many of you who are, including my dad but when i found and read this little piece I DIED LAUGHING Scan below:
