Bit** fight titillates Fox viewers!
This morning disc jockeys were all over the Ellen DeGeneres controversy like flies on sh** on the heels of this remark bypop icon Patti LaBelle:
"Someone shouldn't be on American Idol."
"Wonder who that could be?" they chortled in jest on one popular morning show.
"Well, three of the judges have been on Idol for years and nothing was said before. So, you figure it out," quipped one perky female jock.
All music pointers appeared to be jabbing at the podium in the direction of Ellen.
"The problem is she's a type "A" personality," one seasoned broadaster wailed.
"Simon too," a gossip reporter retorted in an astute uptake.
"She used to sit next to Simon - but when she complained that he was fondling her leg - they moved her," he snidely uttered in an aside.
Yeah, some men find the idea of bedding a lesbian a kinky erotic sexual turn-on, for sure.
"So, now you've got these two bookends on either side anchoring down the panel," they conceded unhappily.
The scuttlebutt actually bordered on nasty.
"Oh, there's a definite chill in the air on Idol now" they accused.
The general consensus was that Ellen - in the final anaylsis - managed to destroy the chemistry of the show.
Simon and Paula used to be the mom & dad on American Idol. Then, they brought in the uptight (bitchy) new wife, they argued somewhat convincingly.
They wondered aloud about the politicking, too.
"Simon used to have the last word. Ellen gets it now, did you notice?"
Must be a humilating castrating experience, eh?
In sum, the disc jockeys giggled with a tinge of incredulity in their voices that the high-profile Karaoke-style ratings-getter had become the Ellen DeGeneres American Idol show.
Come on, dudes (and dudette).
Maybe it was just that time of the month last night.
What would acccount for her dismal performance last week?
A bad run of the unfunnies, I guess.
Elsewhere, backstage staffers at American Idol have been tittering that Ellen and Simon can't stand each other.
"He does things just to annoy her," one whispered in confidence.
Guess everyone loves a good bit** fight, though.
Ratings on Ellen soared last week and Wednesday night American Idol beat out the Olympics to land in the No. 1 spot.
Will producers take advantage of the Ellen-Cowell power-struggle?
