Simon Cowell is engaged. The lucky gal? Mezhgan Hussainy, a makeup artist he’s been dating for nearly a year.
-Ellen DeGeneres made jokes today on her show about “Idol.” A sampling here.
“The mix is different in the studio so everyone sounds one way in the studio and then I go home and I listen to it….even the judges. You know, in the studio Simon has a Texas accent and he’s the sweetest guy. He’s totally hairless,” she joked.
- Alex Lambert was bleeped after Ryan Seacrest declared him safe. I’m not sure what he said but it was obviously not FCC friendly.
-Thursday night ratings were the lowest in many years: 17.8 million viewers. Of course, the show normally does worse on Thursdays but this is bad. “Idol” can chalk it up to the Olympics, which drew about 19.2 million. This was the second time “Idol” has lost to the Olympics in five tries.
