Didi might be done-done


R&B night proved to be a rough one for the Idol contestants. Didi seems to be the one that will go home this week. Tonight's elimination show will be an interesting one. Idol

the book closes on Paige


As I predicted, Paige went home tonight. They didn't even let her sing for redemption. In all honesty, she should've been gone a long time ago. Paige

Turn the Paige

Wow--Paige just sang on American Idol--only the second singer of the night and I'm ready to send her home. I doubt that anyone will do worse than she did. I will be very surprised if she sticks around after tomorrow night's show.

Idol sees a slump in viewers

Experts are not sure why Idol is losing viewers but some speculate that it could be because of Paula's departure from the show. Or possibly the performers are not as spectacular as previous seasons. They're not the only reality tv show that is struggling. reality tv

Precious

I have not seen the movie yet but plan to. There's all kinds of talk about the star and her size. Why must everyone be so narrow minded? I love her quotes in this story. An acquaintance of mine from Vegas is on the board of NAAFA and she is quoted in this article about TMZ. Gabourey Sidibe seems to be an excellent actress and will go far. She has just been cast in Showtime's "The Big C."

There's a new Rockford in town.

I always enjoyed watching the Rockford files with James Garner. The show is coming back with Dermot Mulroney in the lead role. He's got some big shoes to fill. http://tv.yahoo.com/dermot-mulroney/contributor/34755/news/tv-news.en.reuters.com/tv-news.en.reuters.com-20100301-us_rockford

changes for Idol

The men performed on Tuesday instead of the women because of an illness. Crystal Bowersox was in the hospital and expected to be able to perform on Wednesday. But that's not the only change. The men, with one less day to practice, really stepped it up. I am finally hearing some great singing and if last night is any indication of what's to come from the women; I'm really looking forward to Wednesday's show. http://new.music.yahoo.com/blogs/realityrocks/321651/the-american-idol-top-20-night-part-1-crystal-falls-ill-but-the-boys-recover/
