‘Idol’ contestant busted in club fight

asiah-epperson

Sure, you might barely remember her from season seven but’”Idol” semi-finalist Asia’h Epperson has been arrested for fighting with another gal at a Hollywood nightclub.

TMZ has the photos.

Epperson looks oddly happy as she’s getting arrested. TMZ said she had been hanging with rapper Too Short.

I barely remember her. I think she just missed the top 12.

TMZ has a video of her explaining her situation after getting out of prison today. She said the altercation happened in the bathroom. And she showed off her prison cuff marks on her wrists.

Here she is singing a shaky version of “All By Myself” from 2008:

- Fantasia is out of the hospital after her medical overdose Monday, her manager Brian Dickens said. “She has been lifted up by the outpouring of love and support from her fans,” Dickens wrote in a new statement. “She is more committed than ever to her daughter and her work because they are her heart, her soul and inspiration.”

Oh I remember her, she was one of my favorites (because I’m shallow). Club fight… classy!

And the new judge is.....

Ha. Yes. She was in the Top 24 with Alaina Whitaker and Kady Malloy. There was also the GA girl, Alex Lushington. Kady made it the furthest out of them with her Britney impersonations. Alaina was good, but she looked too much like Carrie’s little sister… :shock: Not a bad thing in general, but not so good on Idol.

This week feels like an episode of “Cops: American Idol!”

LOL, Rodney!

Re Brian Dickens statement about Fantasia: She is more committed than ever to her daughter and her work because they are her heart, her soul and inspiration.” Maybe she should have been more committed to her daughter and her work BEFORE all this crap!

I do remember the girl – at first thought she was the girl from GA, but thanks to K&Cfan, I now also remember Alex Lushington, who I remember really liking. Thought she went home too soon.

Listening to Grooveshark today – got “Boh Rhapsody” by both Michael J and Constantine (and have to say Con’s really rocks, even though I love MJ), a number of Kelly’s performances from the show (”Some of…”, “Raining Men”, “Natural Woman”, + a bunch from her albums, Cook’s “Music…Night” + “First Time…”; Crystal’s “Midnight train….” (really good!) as well as a bunch of 60’s Brit invasion (Sandy Shaw, Lulu, Zombies, Kinks and OF COURSE the Beatles), some Tams, Drifters, Otis Redding, Ben E King, Roy Orbison, 3 Dog Night – Man this is a really great collection – hard to keep my mind on work!

“shaky” – Roho, you’re too kind. Mercifully, the video cut off at 1:58, but that was ample time to hear her pre/singing rambles about Idol being “just like cheerleading, with hair, make-up and outfits”.

I wonder if they’re going to change the Idol theme from its current one to the “Bad Boys” theme from “Cops?”

I always check comments on last thread when new one is up.
Thanks, Deirdre, animals are OK,just scared. Miss Kitty (her real name) was sitting on the kitchen island growling, her tail 3 inches thick. Pretty good for American shorthair.

Good guesses on Worst Movie. Will see one of your choices tonight…

As for the Idol stars with bad luck, how about Idol “stars” with bad judgement. Chikezie stealing cologne from Neiman-Marcus? The girl with a hunting show? The F-”lady”? Forgoten… oh, what was his name… the guy who claimed he had an affair with Paula and was booted off.Anybody?

This is why our generation is going Alzheimerish. Too much useless info stored.

Bad judgment former Idols…The girl who is in rehab all the time…can’t remember here name either, Stephanie Edwards just got in trouble for something or other. Chikezie definitely has a problem.
But I’m not sure why the girl with the hunting show(aka Kristie Lee Cook) is showing bad judgment. She’s not doing anything illegal or sleazy or even out of the box.

Jessica Sierra is the one in and out of rehab.

I have to agree with Deirdre regarding KLC. Nothing bad about having a hunting show, except for the fact that is showcases how your music career is a big dud.

Stephanie Edwards was also arrested for a fight in a nightclub. Didn’t it used to be that it was guys who got arrested for fighting?

Dierdre, saying “She is more committed than ever to her daughter and her work because they are her heart, her soul and inspiration” isn’t saying much when the bar is set so low.

That’s like taking the first step on a cross-country hike and saying, “I’m closer than ever before!”

Rickster

Now-a-day, guys don’t fight in clubs. They go out to the parking lot, grab a gun, and pop a cap at the guy that ‘dissed ‘em.

Of course! Corey! Who wasn’t all that bad, considering. Another bad decision maker, though. Veering off the subject a bit, biut not much. there ARE skankier women that the F-lady… Larry Fishburne’s daughter who is actively pursuing a “career” in the porn business because it will make her famous. Most be some iussues there between father and daughter.

Rickster- evidently our folks jumped to this entry and didn’t read the troubled AI alum link you posted. The names that are being thrown out (Jessica Sierra, Corey Clark, etc) are all in that article.

Imagine thinking that the porn industry will make you famous!

Thanks for reminding me, ‘pizza, but even after reading the article, I’m still going to have trouble remembering those names.

D, I think women like Jenna Jameson, Traci Lords, Ginger Lynn, etc. would argue that porn can indeed make you famous. Maybe a different kind of famous, but famous nonetheless.

I know this isn’t a sports blog but I’d like to say thank you and an early goodbye to our beloved Chipper Jones. An MRI shows that he has extensive damage to his knee and will require surgery. Rough way to go out(and yes, he might come back)

Well, I just heard about Ginger from some guy at work. You know, it’s not like I’ve ever seen any of THOSE kind of films (wink, wink). But apparently Ginger Lynn was the “it” girl in porn and then ruined it by trying to go into mainstream films.

JTesla

The problem with Fishburne’s daughter going after a career in porn is that she looks just like her old man. Seeing that mans face on a naked woman’s body just doesn’t do anything for me. It’s like something out of Event Horizon (great movie btw)

Ginger Lynn… I have a friend, who shall remain nameless, a college prof. who teaches film history, who told me about GL when she was going to go legit. He tried to “help” her, but I guess it didn’t work out. Have never seen a GL movie, legit or not, so can’t “critique” her work.

Rickster, I have to disagree, just because a skank puts on a bikini that doesn’t mean that she is hot. Why just look at Skanktasia. I never cared for Bikini Girl, pre or post op.

Wait a minute Heather… “I won’t be watching that porn, for sure!!” BUT you will be watching other porn? You go girl!

If there’s a mentor that week, let them be the judge and give feedback as to how well the contestant listened to their advice. Otherwise (and during the auditions) pick any well-know currently working artist.

Rickster–I think Sarah McLachlan would be an inspired choice for several reasons. 1) They need someone on there who is going to push girl power. 2) From her experience organizing Lilith Fair, she has worked with newer musicians and helped them get established. 3) She might be in a place to actually consider it, since the Lilith Fair redux didn’t take off as hoped. 4) Woman can *sing*. I wouldn’t mind Sheryl Crow, either–she spent quite a long time working in the music industry before she “made it.”

How cutely naive of me to want to consider what might be best for nurturing the contestants into actual music careers. Ha ha ha ha ha!

Some people just doesn’t learn the correct way to conduct themselves in private or public.

Who would want to become famous for porn films, fighting, stealing, adultery, or whatever the wrong may be. I guess to some, to become famous they will try anything to have accomplished the notoriety they set out to achieve.

Rickster

August 12th, 2010

What’s weird about Montana Fishburne is that – in interviews I’ve seen – she says “I want to do that. That interests me.”

If that’s what makes her happy… who am I to judge?

But I sure wouldn’t want my daughter to aspire to that for a career.
