Rosie O'Donnell Hearts Constantine

So...everyone's favorite celebrity blogger had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Constantine Maroulis earlier today.

Here are some excerpts for Rosie's wonderous blog entry:

he is tall and sexy
and he smelled good

2 idols in one trip
what’s the chances of that?

paula was a wreck last night
maybe i’ll e mail her the photo
cheer her up


Is it wrong that I think it's cute that Rosie gets star struck by Idol rejects?

Only FOUR more days until Rosie's return to television! I can't wait!

Bo the Cokehead

BREAKING NEWS

In June of 2001, Idol 4 finalist Bo Bice was busted for cocaine!

AND his first name isn't Bogart...it's HAROLD!

For the full story, click here.


UPDATE: "The information disclosed on various salacious gossip websites regarding Bo Bice's past was already well-known to Fox and the producers of American Idol," the network said in a statement released Wednesday. "From the beginning, Bo was honest and forthcoming in revealing his previous indiscretions and their outcome."

YET ANOTHER UPDATE: The big sister just made a good point: "Harold has officially broken my heart...I know that Coke is one of the Idol's official sponsors, but this takes endorsement to a whole new level."

Scott Savol is the NEW Jasmine Trias?

Can THIS be the reason why Scott Savol is still around?

Paula is the NEW Looney

So Kristin over at E! Online has an interesting bit o' Idol gossip for y'all.

FIRST, she posts the following bit in her column:

I Know Something You Don't Know (aka...the Blind Riddle): You know what this column needs? A whole lotta estrogen. And I have just the girl for the job--we'll call her Looney Lolita, who happens to be the one constant many of you cannot stand on a certain well-known, widely watched show. Turns out, producers actually tried to fire her in the third season, but this crazy girl would not take no for an answer. She broke down and wept and begged for her job back for days on end, offering to work without the perks she had in the first season--including her own hair and makeup team. They agreed, and, sadly, the mess continues...

AND THEN, she posts this in her weekly chat transcript:

From ex: The ice queen isn't Paula Abdul?

Kristin: No, she's not. But she might be another Blind Riddle. (Whoopsie, did I say that out loud?)

From tivoteacher : That last Blind Riddle about the chick who wouldn't take being fired as an answer sounds like a crazy '80s pop star--and I ain't thinkin' it's Tiffany or Debbie Gibson.

Kristin: Straight up now tell me. Who do you think it is?


Hmmm...I wonder WHO Kristin is talking about?

A Pleasant Surprise

THE RESULTS SHOW FOR THE TOP 6 OF THE IDOL 4

Why won't Scott Savol GO AWAY??? I know that I hate the Constantine, but I can admit that "Connie" has oodles more talent than the baby mama beater.

I mean...did you hear Scott during the "Emotions" group sing-along? Ugh. He is the worst!

But you know who isn't the worst? The Fedorov! That Ford commercial bit where he wore various getups to blend into the wallpaper, the refrigerator, the lamp, and the house plant was genius! It was very Master of Disguise...only funny!

And what was up with Clay showing up in the audience a SECOND day in row? Me thinks that the Gayiken has a bit of a crush on 'Anatoliy.'


Enough with the small talk, on to the results...

THE ACTUAL BOTTOM THREE
  • Anthony "the Earnest European" Fedorov
  • Constantine "Smarmy" Maroulis
  • Vonzell "Don't Call Me the Postman" Solomon

In the end...we said goodbye to the undeniably creepy Constantine Maroulis.



Bye Constantine! We won't miss you! Hope your band refuses to take you back!

And one more thing...



Can someone please try to get Paula to stop leaking?

Probing Paula (and other stories)

Paula's getting probed!

Clay is getting plastic and making "dreams" come true with Oprah!



And...the one and only Simon Cowell has managed to outdo himself...by creating the world's lamest boyband.

Heather Locklear! Mia Tyler! Clay Aiken! Method Man! Oh My!

THE TOP 6 OF THE IDOL 4
THEME: The Millennium (Songs of the '00s)

1) Carrie Underwood ("When God-Fearin' Women Get The Blues" by Martina McBride) - Carrie's performance was a little too desperately-trying-to-be-rootsy country for me...and frankly, I've seen better on "Nashville Star."

2) Bo Bice ("I Don't Want To Be" by Gavin DeGraw) - Loved Bo's performance. Didn't love Bo's ensemble. Who wears a hippie poncho AND Yoko Ono sunglasses TOGETHER??? That's like MC Hammer coming out wearing "Hammer" pants and a flannel shirt from L.L. Bean.

(PS: who knew that Bo's Mom was such MILF?)

3) Vonzell Solomon ("I Turn To You" by Christina Aguilera) - Week in and week out...the Vonzell continues to be the cutest Idol contestant ever. And her vocals aren't bad either! Your voice teacher, Mrs. Billups, taught you well, girlfriend!

(And since I love Vonzell so much, I'll ignore the fact that "I Turn To You" was actually released on Xtina's album in 1999...NOT the '00s!)

4) Anthony Fedorov ("I Surrender" by Celine Dion) - Kelly KILLED with this song when she performed it on the Idol way back when. So when I heard Anthony break out into that bombastic chorus, I thought the boy with the "miracle" voice was going to falter and flounder...yet somehow Anthony managed to pull off a respectable performance.

5) Constantine Maroulis ("How You Remind Me" by Nickelback) - I hate to admit it, but I'm kinda partial to Nickelback. It's one of the few songs that I hear regularly on the radio that is written within my limited range...it's a shame it wasn't written in Constantine's.

6) Scott Savol ("Dance With My Father," by Luther Vandross) - I'm struggling to come up with an accurate critique of Scott's horrendous performance tonight....so I'm going to have to crib a line from Matthew Gilbert's review of Lifetime's I Married a Princess: "it's just a big bunch of who cares."

FOX LEGAL THREAT OVER ABCNEWS 'AMERICAN IDOL' EXPOSÉ

ABC has been warned in writing it could face legal fallout for airing its scathing behind-the-scenes look at FOX's AMERICAN IDOL, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned. FOX owner Rupert Murdoch has informed executives that it appears ABC is attempting to maliciously "destroy" the nation's most-watched series as it heads into the final weeks.

FOX believes ABC has interviewed a half a dozen losing contestants -- contestants who will claim AMERICAN IDOL producers and judges somehow manipulate the show's outcome!

ABCNEWS is planning to air the PRIMETIME LIVE exposé next Wednesday. A May Sweeps mauling. "We got all these ridiculous questions yesterday from an ABC producer," a top IDOL source tells the DRUDGE REPORT. "ABC can not beat us with programming, so they are attempting to bring us down with lies and false charges."At the center of the questions, the IDOL source claims, is the actions of show judge Paula Abdul."[ABC] is trying to say Paula somehow cheats and picks favorite singers to nurture, in violation of some sort of network standards," the IDOL source, who demanded anonymity, explains.

That Girl that "Suffered From Exhaustion"

Remember Christina Christian?



That beautiful, quietly confident African-American Florida girl from the first season of the Idol?

The one that performed a killer rendition of "Ain't No Sunshine"?

Well...it turns out that although she is STILL managed by 19 Entertainment (the Simon Fuller/Idol related management company), Christina is living in Florida...finishing up her B.A., getting married to her college sweetheart, and writing over 40 songs that she hopes to turn into the world's first double CD debut by a former Idol contestant.


OK...that bit about the double CD isn't true, but the rest is! For the full story on what that wacky Christina has been up to, click here.

Come Back to the Feud, Louie Anderson!

TIVO ALERT

Ten former "American Idol" contestants are going to appear on an upcoming episode of "Family Feud" that is scheduled to air in syndication the week of May 2.

A men's team of A.J. Gill, George Huff, Jon Peter Lewis, Matt Rogers, and Rickey Smith face off against a women's team of Amy Adams, Vanessa Olivarez, Diana DeGarmo, Julia DeMato, and Kimberley Locke.

Richard "That Bearded Guy from Home Improvement" Karn hosts.


I don't know about you...but I'm rooting for Diana DeNoNo's team.

Kelly Clarkson Has No Idea How To Save Social Security

I was a very bad Kelly Clarkson fan this weekend. I got so caught up in throwing a birthday BBQ for the big sister that I totally forget to blog a shout out to Kelly on her birthday (April 24th).

So...in tribute to Miss Clarkson, I will now complete this blog entry like an obsessive Claymate:


HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY KELLY!

I hope you will find room in your heart to forgive me for missing your birthday...BUT if you are still angry about it...maybe you should write how you feel down on paper...and then, maybe one day...you can turn that little freewrite into a song. Perhaps you can call the song, "Since U Been Blogged" or "Blogaway" or "A Moment Like judge jru?"

Just a thought...

Love, hugs, and kisses,
judge jru

PS: I'm really not one of those crazy obsessive fans. I'm actually quite laid back...so when you get back to LA...I would love to take you out and buy you a bottle of water...and then, I could sell your backwash on eBay.

PPS: It'll be super-fun.

PPPS: Promise!

Pray for the Soul of Koch Records

The Verraros has a new labelmate: Pray for the Soul of Betty (a.k.a.: Constantine's Pre-Idol Band).

It turns out that before Constantine staged a walk out for the Idol cameras, he recorded an album with his bandmates. And now...Koch Records is going to sick Constantine's brand of "rock" on the unsuspecting masses on May 10th. For the full story, click here.

G-d help America.

Hi...my name is Josh Gracin. I used to be an Idol contestant, but recently...I have blossomed into a lame country singer.


Just how lame am I?

I'm lamer than that rapping cowboy known as "Cowboy Troy."



For those of you that are not familiar with Cowboy Troy (I wasn't until ten minutes ago), please click here to check out his official website.



Still don't believe me?

Check out the video for his song, "I Play Chicken With The Train."



I'm all for racial diversity in country music...but a rapping cowboy? REALLY?

Coo, coo, ca-choo, Mrs. Robinson

THE RESULTS SHOW FOR THE TOP 7 OF THE IDOL 4

How about that Seacrest blooper/tribute reel?

It was HILARIOUS!
(And by hilarious...I mean...not at all.)

And what about that group sing along where Carrie, Bo, and Anwar played their very own instruments...while Constantine, Anthony, Vonzell, and Scoot stood around looking like idiots?

It was AMAZING!
(in a very kitschy, Partridge Family kind of way)

OK, enough with the snarkiness...on to the only bit of information anyone really cares about:


THE ACTUAL BOTTOM THREE
  • Anthony "One Wild and Krazy Guy" Fedorov
  • Anwar "Don't Call Me Mrs." Robinson
  • Scott "How Am I Still Here" Savol

And in the end, we said bye bye bye to the one and only Anwar Robinson.


Goodbye Anwar! See you in the classroom...and on BlackPlanet.com!

Club Idol

THE TOP 7 OF THE IDOL 4
THEME: "SEVENTIES DANCE CLASSICS"

1) Constantine Maroulis ("Nights on Broadway" by the Bee Gees from 1975) - Just like female celebrities' fascination with Ugg Boots, Constantine's Idol appeal continues to remain a total mystery to me.

2) Carrie Underwood ("MacArthur Park" by Donna Summer from 1978) - Big Hair. Big Voice. Big Final Note. Although I enjoyed the Underwood's performance for the first time in weeks, I still feel like Carrie is holding back...waiting for that moment when Ryan announces that it's FINALLY Country and Western night.

3) Scott Savol ("Everlasting Love" by Carl Carlton from 1974) - How is this baby mama beater STILL in the competition? He's not cute. He's not talented. AND he's about as charming as Brian Dunkleman on a BAD day.

4) Anthony Fedorov ("Don't Take Away the Music" by Tavares from 1976) - Anthony is like that guy that your friend has been dating for a couple of months that you really want to like, but for some reason you just can't muster up any enthusiasm for him. He's more of a cute pet than a REAL boyfriend. OR if you want to take it back to the real topic at hand, he is the guy that sticks around the Idol for weeks after you know that he is NEVER going to make it to the Final Two (this phenomenon is also known as "the RJ Helton factor").

5) Vonzell Solomon ("I'm Every Woman" by Chaka Khan from 1978) - Not my favorite Vonzell performance, but I'm still loving the Vonzell....although I really wish Vonzell would lay off the Whitney songs.

6) Anwar Robinson ("September" by Earth Wind and Fire from 1978) - Somehow...Anwar managed to make one of my favorite 70s songs into the lamest song I've ever heard.

7) Bo Bice ("Vehicle" by the Ides of March from 1970) - Bo's performance sounded like one of those mash-ups that are always circulating around various hipster blogs, where vocals from one song are pulled out and put up against a totally different tune (por ejemplo: "Smells Like Teen Booty," which takes us to a magical fantasy land where Kurt, Dave, Kelly, and Beyonce are all members of the SAME band).

Cold-Hearted Paula

BREAKING NEWS

Paula is suing her manicurist for mental anguish.


Below is a snarky excerpt from the story on the Celebrity Justice website:

"Though she's known as "American Idol's" "nice" judge, offering the contestants words of praise, Paula Abdul has nothing good to say about a swanky Los Angeles nail salon she claims caused her excruciating pain and mental anguish. But we've learned Paula may have a hard time proving it in a court of law -- because she's apparently having a little trouble finding a lawyer."

Undercover Savol



This picture is just one in a series of shots taken during the Idol's trip to Universal Studios in Hollywood.

The idea that the Savol has to hide his identity from the public by using a $2 plasic nose/glasses combo is SO ridiculous that I can think of nothing snarky to say...

CLAY AIKEN TIVO ALERT!

Tomorrow (Tuesday, April 19th) on Dr. Phil, Clay Aiken will talk about his trouble with bullys. Apparently, the singer was teased for the way he dressed, his coke-bottle glasses, and his hairstyle.

Thank G-d someone stepped in and introduced the Aiken to the wonderful world of flat ironing.

There's Something About Paula

According to this posting, we can all blame "pain pills" for Paula's strange behavior this season on the Idol.

Report: Abdul hooked on Pain Pills, Intervention next?

PAULA ABDUL'S REPORTED ADDICTION TO PAIN PILLS IS SO SEVERE, HER FRIENDS MAY HAVE TO STAGE AN INTERVENTION -- SUPPOSEDLY, PAULA TAKES THEM FOR A CHEERLEADING INJURY SHE SUFFERED IN HIGH SCHOOL (MUST'VE BEEN PRETTY SEVERE: SHE GRADUATED IN '79) -- TWO YEARS AGO, SHE DID AN INTERVIEW WITH "DATELINE NBC" AND SAID "THEY GAVE ME PILLS THAT WOULD PUT A 300-POUND MAN FLAT ON HIS BACK"-- A SOURCE ON THE SHOW SAYS "I STRONGLY BELIEVE THAT HER RELIANCE ON PAIN BILLS HAS TURNED INTO A FULL-BLOWN ADDICTION. SHE'S GETTING WORSE EVERY DAY. DURING A RECENT APPEARANCE WITH JAY LENO, SHE WAS SLURRING HER WORDS SO BADLY, JAY WAS LOOKING AT HIS PRODUCER, LIKE 'SHOULD WE CUT TO COMMERCIAL?'" -- MEANWHILE, THE PRODUCERS OF "AMERICAN IDOL" HAVE ASKED HER TO STAY SEATED: THEY'RE AFRAID IF SHE STANDS, SHE'LL WOBBLE LIKE A BOWLING PIN, AND FALL FLAT ON HER FACE -- ANOTHER SOURCE SAYS "SHE GOBBLES DOWN PAIN PILLS LIKE THERE'S NO TOMORROW, BUT SHE'S NOT USING THEM FOR PAIN, SHE USES THEM TO SETTLE HER JANGLED NERVES. PAULA SEEMS OUT OF IT MORE & MORE THESE DAYS-AND EVERYONE NOTICES IT, EVERYONE EXCEPT HER"...

Bye Bye Nadia!

That Desmond Child-produced charity single is truly craptacular...eh?

What about that Carrie Underwood? She actually has personality...eh? Who knew? The producers are clearly trying to groom her into the new Kelly Clarkson (aka: the fun, quirky totally relatable girl next door). If only Carrie would do an interview with absolutely no makeup on like Kelly used to...

Enough babbling...on to the results:


THE ACTUAL BOTTOM THREE

  • Bo "The Rich Man's Constantine" Bice
  • Nadia "I'm Suddenly Religious" Turner
  • Scott "I Look Like A Prison Guard" Savol

And in the end...we said bub-bye to Nadia.


Bye Nadia! Good luck with that "rock soul Christian band" that I didn't know you were in!

Ryan Seacrest is not a Toy

THE TOP 8 OF THE IDOL 4
THEME: "SONGS FROM THE YEAR YOU WERE BORN"

1) Nadia Turner ("When I Dream" by Mac Davis/Crystal Gayle from 1977) - Nadia's hair manages to get bigger and bigger every week...she's like the Afro-centric version of Cousin It.

2) Bo Bice ("Free Bird" by Lynyrd Skynyrd from 1975) - Bo's performance of Free Bird = Not So Hot. Finding out that Bo's real name is Bogart = Priceless.

3) Anwar Robinson ("I'll Never Love This Way Again" by Dionne Warwick from 1979) - Anwar seems super nice...but that also makes him super-boring.

4) Anthony Fedorov ("Everytime You Go Away" by Paul Young/Hall & Oates from 1985) - I don't know what was worse Hall & Oates' bad plastic surgery or Anthony's Euro-oke performance. [Eurotrash x Karaoke = Euro-oke]

5) Vonzell Solomon ("Let's Hear It For The Boy" by Denise Williams from 1984) - I am continuing to LOVE the Vonzell. I'm loving everything about the Vonzell...especially the fact that she wore an acid washed jean skirt to perform a song from "Footloose."

6) Scott Savol ("She's Gone" by Hall & Oates from 1976) - Well...at least he shaved off the child molester mustache.

7) Carrie Underwood ("Love is a Battlefield" by Pat Benatar from 1983) - Carrie Underwood is many things: A talented country singer. A cute and charming blonde. And an adorable American Idol 4 front-runner. However, Carrie Underwood is not and never will be a rocker (even the American Idol version of a rocker). So...despite her valiant attempt to showcase her killer pipes, Carrie's wannabe rock bit felt about as authentic as that time that Britney Spears attempted to "rock out" to the Rolling Stones.

8) Constantine Maroulis ("Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen from 1975) - Hey Constantine...I'm sorry to bother you, but I have to ask...do you really think you have the pipes and presence to pull off "Bohemian Rhapsody"? Really Constantine? REALLY? REALLY????

Verraros + the Aiken = "Gross"

Just last week, the Verraros was interviewed by the Windy City Times about his new movie and CD. The in-depth interview features many juicy soundbites from the Idol 1 contestant, including "Everyone thinks I’m a bitch," "I love Mikalah," and "I want to play a crack whore!"


But my favorite bit of banter between the Verraros and his intrepid interviewer has to be:

LF: Would you do a duet with Clay?

JV: Never.

LF: But you could help him come out.

JV: No. I wouldn’t. Uch. I couldn’t. I’d rather duet with Kelly or George Michael. Oh no. Gross.

At least it's not "America"



It's really very nice that this is a "charity" single...but does anyone really NEED the Idol 4 version of "He Ain't Heavy...He's My Brother"???

The New York Times HEARTS the Verraros

The reviews for "Eating Out" are in...and for the most part, they aren't too snazzy.

However, Dana Stevens of the New York Times has some kind words to say about the Idol's very own Jim Verraros:

"The one surprise in the cast is Mr. Verraros, a former contestant on "American Idol," in his first acting role, as the queeny, scheming Kyle. Despite the limitations of the role as written, he has a scrappy energy that sets him apart from the bland and vulgar proceedings."

Congrats Jim! You're scrappy!

Where's my Baby Mama Drama?

I'm so pissed! Fantasia ended up singing some b.s. medley of "Truth Is" & "I Believe" on tonight's episode of the Idol. I was promised "Baby Mama"!!!

WHY NO BABY MAMA?

I know this is a family show, but if they can show Nikki McKibbin's bastard child crying his eyes out during Idol 1...then they can definitely have Fantasia perform her tribute to all of the baby mama's in the audience during Idol 4!

Idol producers be damned...I will see Fantasia perform "Baby Mama" someday soon. You best BELIEVE that!


Anyways, on to this week's results:

THE ACTUAL BOTTOM THREE
  • Nikko "Don't Call me OJ" Smith
  • Scott "I Beat My Wife" Savol
  • Vonzell "Quietly Confident" Solomon

And in the end, we said goodbye to Nikko.

Bye Nikko! Have fun chillin' with Charles Grigsby and Rickey Smith!


FANTASIA UPDATE: Fantasia has a book deal...just like the Aiken! The title of her inspirational autobiography? "Life is Not a Fairy Tale," of course.

Oh my God, your a freak! What are you twelve? Lol. It only goes to show that any nim-witt w/o a brain can set up a site thats spews non-truths, while verbally slaying people they don't even know. At the most, it's only your personal opinion. I think you should do yourself and your readers (if you have any.) a favor and listen to it again. It's on http://www.idolmedia.tv/ I doubt that you will though. You obviously have no integrity. And I would like to see any evidence that Constantine said he sang grudge. The only thing I've ever heard him say anything regarding grunge, was right before he sang "I Can't Make You Love Me" by Bonnie Raitt. When he said that he loved the 90's because of grunge. Oh, before you label me a teeny-bopper fan for Constantine, I'm a 46 yr, old married woman...one of many.

Gayest. Episode. Ever.

THE TOP 9 OF IDOL 4
THEME: CLASSIC MUSICALS

1) Scott Savol ("The Impossible Dream" from Man of La Mancha) - I never thought I'd say this, but where's Robert Goulet when you need him?

2) Constantine Maroulis ("My Funny Valentine" from Babes in Arms) - This week...the worst Idol contestant ever attempted to seduce the camera and the audience with his rendition of a Frank Sinatra standard. The judges loved it, but the only thing Constantine's performance did for me was give me a massive case of indigestion.

3) Carrie Underwood ("Hello, Young Lovers" from The King and I) - Carrie is super cute...but she's kind of like the boring version of Kelly Clarkson.

4) Vonzell Solomon ("People" from Funny Girl) - Again...totally loving the Vonzell.

5) Anthony Fedorov ("Climb Ev'ry Mountain" from The Sound of Music) - To use my little sister's words: "gayest Idol performance ever."

6) Nikko Smith ("One Hand, One Heart" from West Side Story) - Week after week, I'm still amazed that Nikko is still around.

7) Anwar Robinson ("If Ever I would Leave You" from Camelot) - For the second time tonight, I'm feeling nostalgic for Mr. Robert Goulet. What's become of me? And more importantly, what's become of the Idol?

8) Bo Bice ("Corner of the Sky" from Pippin) - What's wrong with Bo? Why didn't he perform something 'rockin' from Rent? Or Tommy? Or HAIR? But...Pippin? REALLY??? Bo...I know Ben Vereen. I used to watch Mr. Vereen on "Zoobilee Zoo." And you sir, are no Ben Vereen.

9) Nadia Turner ("As Long as He Needs Me" from Oliver!) - Remember when I used to like Nadia? Remember when her performances didn't remind me of some bad drag queen version of Jessye Norman? Yeah...that was a while ago.
