Kara DioGuardi recently told TV Guide the following:
“I’m only here for one season,”!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That’s sucks! I bet she’ll change her mind. (I personally think she’s going to replace Paula Abdul …Paula is about 2 pills away from knocking herself out of the show despite her claims on Nightline!! I think she brings a balance of “songwriting” and making hits)
While the pull-no-punches pundit admits that she’s enjoyed her tenure on Idol so far, she’s not sure if she’ll be back next season.
“That’s what we’ve discussed. So we’ll see what happens. Hopefully they’ll keep me on.”
“I feel grateful to America that they let me grow and they let me find my groove on the show and that they were patient,” she adds. “And hopefully I haven’t disappointed them. It’s been a scary experience at times.”
