It’s no secret that the one person in Hollywood that seems to catch our ire is Kara DioGuardi. On American Idol, she’s full of half-hearted “Sweetie”s and “Aw, honey, no”s and there’s something self-serving about her presence that rubs us the wrong way. Which is why we barfed a little when we saw her bikini photo spread in Maxim this week and realized she was genuinely serious about trying to one-up Bikini Girl last season and this is how she managed to do it.
In addition to her photo spread, her interview includes lines like “They were looking for a fourth judge, and they wanted to add someone who was in the industry. Plus, I’m known to be ballsy and outspoken,” and “I wouldn’t say I have the maternal instinct that [Paula] had, though. I’m a little bit more New York, a little more hard-edge.” Oooh, so tough, DioGuardi! (Harsh? Maybe. It’s just that she is just so annoying.) She may be built Ford tough (sponsor plug!), but that doesn’t change the fact that she wrote “No Boundaries”, the worst song in the history of crappy pop. [Photo: Maxim]
