Rumor has it this morning that American Idol judge nominee Kara DioGuardi is joining Ellen DeGeneres in departing judges’ table.
This is all real pitchy, dawg.
Also, auf wiedersehen Kara.
I know, I’m getting my shows confused. But in just over an hour of consciousness and half a cup of coffee, I have already seen a dizzying list of suggested replacements for the definitely departing Ellen and Simon Cowell and the potentially canned Kara. This includes Justin Timberlake, Elton John, Usher, Jessica Simpson, Jennifer Lopez, Harry Connick, Jr., and my personal favorite, Steven Tyler of Aerosmith.
I also hope the Kara news is true although it hasn’t been confirmed, because something about her really bothers me. She’s like all of the annoyance with five percent of the entertainment factor of Paula Abdul, and that is just not acceptable.
I actually think this would be an opportune time to mesh American Idol and the Real World, with a dash of some other messed up celebrity reality show. How about we just take all of these jokers and have them live in a house with Ryan Seacrest and have their lives taped, while concurrently judging mostly average vocalists and a couple three talented people who will go on to mid-range celebrity?
The only people who are not rumored to be leaving and who clearly have nowhere else to go are your favorite dawg and mine, dawg, Randy Jackson and the loathsome Ryan Seacrest. If I were betting Monopoly money I’d go ahead and call JLo and Steve Tyler, with a fantasy pick of Elton as a guest judge for the final four.
And yeah, I just said I had an American Idol judge fantasy pick. Let’s move on, shall we?

Laurie watches American Idol because my mother makes me. Not even kidding.
