Kara DioGuardi is still int he dark when it comes to the status of her employment with American Idol…its kinda of sad and mean to to not directly tell people on the show if they are fired! Harsh!!
According to MTV this is what Kara’s Dad Joe ( Former Congressman) had to say…
Two weeks after she was rumored to have been fired from “American Idol,” Kara DioGuardi has still not spoken to anyone involved with the show, and feels that she has been mistreated by producers. At least, according to her dad, anyway.
In an interview earlier this week with Albany, New York, TV show “Capital Tonight,” Joe DioGuardi â€” a former congressman now seeking the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate â€” said that his daughter is disappointed by the way “Idol” has treated her, and that she remains in the dark about her future on the show.
“Would you believe that she did not hear â€” and still has not heard â€” anything?” DioGuardi said. “She read [about her supposed firing] the way you and I did. Her disappointment is that that’s the way she’s being treated, and she feels that’s not proper.”
Joe DioGuardi chalks all that maneuvering up to “Idol” trying to generate some buzz for the fading show, and added that, despite her bitterness over the way she’s been handled, his daughter would still return to the judges’ table if she were asked. Maybe.
“I think what they’re trying to do is create a lot of buzz, like they did with Paula Abdul. They’re trying to reformat the thing, but Kara has a very deep career in music … so she’ll be fine,” he said. “Would she want to do it another year? I think so, but she just got married, and she’d like to have a family, so maybe this is a good opening for her too. She has plenty of options. I think she will, at some point, confront them on that.”
