Kara DioGuardi is confirming her time is up as a judge on American Idol after this season. The reason being that Kara only signed on to do one season.
Kara tells TV Guide “I’m only here for one season,” she says. “That’s what we’ve discussed. So we’ll see what happens. Hopefully they’ll keep me on.”
Simon Cowell was also asked on whether or not Kara would be back next season, he said, “I would imagine so, but the only say I have is about Ryan, Randy and Paula. I’ve always made it clear that I wouldn’t like to do the show without them. So that’s all I’m really concerned about.” Interesting comment by Simon, it might be safe to say Kara won’t be coming back next season.

Singer Jewel has some choice advice for Dancing With The Stars’ Melissa Rycroft. Jewel believes the injured dancer should go home if she is too injured to dance.
Jewel wrote on her husband Ty Murray’sblog - “If you’re too hurt to compete, then you can’t compete.” Jewel continues, “I think the rule about ‘judging a rehearsal if the person is too injured to perform’ was weird both times they have used it.”
The rule states that a contestant who is too injured to compete on the live show will be judged based on their rehearsal footage. It was put into practice when Steve-O hurt his back and on Monday when Melissa suffered a rib injury.
Jewel however does sympathize with Melissa adding, “As bad as I felt for Melissa, who I hope feels better and comes back, I’m used to our cowboy athletes that live by the rule: ‘Ride hurt or don’t get a score. It may seem harsh, but it seems like the only way to keep things honest.”
The cattiness and nastiness is never ending with Bravo’s Real Housewives of New York. The latest involves Jill Zarin taking a swipe at KellyBensimon in a new interview. Evidently, Jill who is on Team Bethenny believes Kelly has no business being on the show and should take a hike!
“I don’t think it’s working for her,” says Jill. “I don’t think she should be on the show. It’s not that I think we should throw anybody off, it’s just that I think if I were her, I would not do the show again. I would go back to anonymity and spend the next year trying to repair my reputation. What’s more important to her: her reputation or fame?”
How old are these women again? Not that Jill isn’t right but is it really necessary to continue to throw Kelly under the bus? Kelly’s behavior on the show speaks for itself. Why not take the high road? Kelly had no comment but her rep says, “Jill is entitled to her opinion. Kelly had a wonderful time on the show.”
According to the same article, Bravo will be expanding this year’s reunion show to two hours over two nights after things got very heated apparently. “There were a lot of liars at the table,” Jill said. “Ramona—liar! Kelly—liar! LuAnn—baby liar.”
In what could be the biggest spoiler in the history of American Idol, an Apple glitch occured this week that revealed which contestants are selling the most “Idol” downloads on Itunes.
The Producers for AI never wanted anyone to know which contestants are selling the most downloads on iTunes, believing it might spoil the results of the show or favor one contestant over another. They had always requested secrecy of the Idol sales from Itunes.
So who is the favorite to win it all according to ITUNES?
The NYPost reports Adam Lambert is in the lead, taking six of the top 10 spots on the Idol list. His rendition of “Mad World,” which earned him a standing ovation from Simon Cowell, and is No. 1 spot on the secret chart.
The big shock in all of this is the fact that the favorite to win it all Danny Gokey is coming in 3rd with only 1 of his songs being in the top 10. Kris Allen is actually in 2nd place, having 3 of his songs in the top 10.
Only time will tell if these Itunes sales will reflect the winner of the show.
The cheating allegations are not going away anytime soon for Jon Gosselin as the father of 8 was caught leaving a club at 2:00 am with another woman, not wearing his wedding ring. All this while his wife Kate was 2,000 miles away, promoting her book Eight Little Faces in Bellevue, Washington.
USWeekly reports that Jon arrived at the club at 11:20 p.m. and by 2 a.m. “could barely walk” as he exited the less-public back entrance of Legends Lounge — near the family’s $1.3-million home in Wernersville, Pennsylvania — on April 18.
Jon was alledgedly overheard yelling, “Hey, babe! Babe! Give me my jacket!” before climbing into his Nissan Nismo. As cameras began snapping, he panicked, urging his female friend to “get in the car!” before speeding off hastily — without even turning on the headlights.
Jon has however denied this cheating allegation in his statement to USWeekly stating, “I went to Legends to speak to the owner. A friend of mine wanted to check out my car, so I let her drive it to her car. Yes, I have female friends — but that is all she is. I’m not going to end my friendships just because I’m on TV.”
We can be sure to expect some more berating of Jon by Kate in the next season of the show.

Another day, another injury for Dancing With The Stars as Melissa Rycroft is the latest star to suffer an injury. The 26-year-old former Bachelor star sat out of last night’s show. Her partner, Tony Dovolani, performed with professional dancer Lacey Schwimmer instead.
The doctors believe Melissa is suffering from a hairline fracture of the ribs. Melissa says, “I hurt my ribs last week doing a difficult move. It was feeling better and then I hurt myself again. I felt a blinding pain shoot down my side, so we decided it would be best to go actually have a doctor check it out.”
Melissa has been touted has one of the front runners to win it all. She was able to rehearse yesterday morning but did not feel well enough to perform for the show. She is expected to make a full recovery soon.
Melissa thanked her fans saying -
“I was doing alright but went to the doc before dress rehearsal for some last minute treatment and ended up having a bad reaction that’s affecting my breathing,” she wrote. “Hopefully (fingers crossed) I’ll be good tomorrow. But thank you for all the love, support and votes! We need it!”
