YAY Jonny! I can’t wait, miss you guys!!!
How many times will Randy say the word dog this season.
Checking in here...
That said, I doubt I’ll be posting much early on. I’ve been very disappointed in the “audition” episodes the last couple of years — they spend too much time making fun of the bad auditions, and not enough time showing us the potential contenders. By the time you get to Hollywood, you don’t care who gets cut because you’d never seen them before (for more than 5 seconds, if that).
So, I’ll likely be skipping or glossing over the episodes until the final 32 unless the focus changes.
Since we all last met in this forum..Jessica Sierrra is in jail, and Katherine McPhee has been dropped by her record label, along with Reuben Sierra..Life is sweet...
The best part is the tryouts.
Thank you, jonny, for graciously hosting another season of AI on FR. You are the best!
...and..Sanjaya and his sister are going to have a new variety show. They are hoping to be the next “Donny and Marie”.
Could you add me to the ping list, please? Thank you!
Looking forward to it. Both the show and the thread.
I hope so. Almost anything would be better than last season. I bet they learned their lesson.
but so has Tay-Tay.....hopefully he’ll bounce back - and get some good song writers.....however, Carrie, the Pickle, Bucky and Josh are all doing great in Nashville.....
I bought several of the albums of the previous contestants - Taylor, Kelly, Bucky, Chris, Elliot. I will not buy the one from Blake ------ or Jordan (I heard it did not do well).
Looked her up on Wikipedia as I could not remember her. She has had an interesting two months:
On November 19, 2007, Sierra was sentenced to 12 months probation after she pleaded "no contest" in a Tampa courtroom to charges of battery and possession of cocaine. Both charges stemmed from an April 29, 2007 arrest at South Tampa's Hyde Park Cafe in which Sierra was arrested after she threw a cocktail glass at a male patron, causing a cut above his eye. She claimed the man had spat on her, but later said she may have mistaken the victim for another person. After she was placed in the squad car that night, officers had to threaten her with leg restraints, a police spokesperson said, because Sierra was kicking at the car windows so hard the officers thought they would break. When Sierra was being booked into Orient Road Jail on the assault charge, police found a small amount of cocaine (less than 1 gram) in her purse. Represented by prominent Tampa attorney John Fitzgibbons, Sierra initially entered "not guilty" pleas to both charges and missed a scheduled court appearance on August 29 because she was in a rehab facility in California. Fitzgibbons stated that she had been at the facility since July. It was later revealed that Sierra was participating in a VH1 rehab reality show being run by Dr. Drew Pinsky of Loveline. The show will debut on VH1 on January 10, 2008. A civil suit is still pending in Hillsborough County in which Wisam Hadad, represented by Dennis Hernandez & Associates, PA, is seeking unspecified damages for his injuries.
On December 1, 2007, shortly before she was to return to California for continued rehab treatment, Sierra was arrested again at a Tampa bar, this time for disorderly intoxication (misdemeanor), resisting arrest without violence (misdemeanor), and violation of the conditions of her parole on the earlier felony charges. Due to the parole violation charge, Sierra is being held without bond and has been in jail since December 1. The police report of the bar incident alleges that she shouted obscenities and slurs at the authorities also offering a sexual deed if they would release her. After that offer was apparently declined, Sierra said, "F*** you, n****r" several times, according to the police report.
On December 6, 2007, Fitz Gibbons entered a "not guilty" plea on Sierra's behalf to all charges, but indicated to the court that he ultimately did not anticipate protesting the violation of parole charge but rather needed time to consult with doctors and come up with some sentencing options for the court's consideration. She will remain in jail at least until her next court appearance, scheduled on December 20.
In December 2007, Vivid Entertainment announced it was releasing a 72-minute sex tape titled "Jessica Sierra Hardcore" involving Sierra and a past boyfriend.
On December 20, 2007, it was announced that Sierra was pregnant. The father is said to be a rapper and Sierra is very happy. The news came while she was still in jail.
On January 8, 2008, Sierra released her first EP on iTunes, as well as Amazon.com and Napster.
On January 9, 2008, Jessica Sierra was released from a jail in Tampa, Florida with the intent of flying directly to California to begin her court-ordered one year treatment at the Pasadena Recovery Center; however, California refused to allow her to transfer into the state. A scheduled meeting was planned for Thursday, January 10, 2008 with a Hillsborough County judge to discuss the situation.
Dang. About as big a train wreck as Brittney without all the cash....
I loved that clip from Family Guy. They nailed that “character” of the black girl who thinks she’s the next Mariah Carey when she gets rejected.
Here we go again!!
Every time Randy says “Dawg,” you “take a drink.”
Come to think of it, that’s what Paula’s been doing.
Now I can plug my TV back in!
LOL!! The American Idol clip, that was funny! I’m so glad to have the #1 thread on FR back jonny. Thanks for the ping. :)
Agreed. We're making do with 3 seasons of Lost and The Office and 10 years of Stargate SG-1.
AI is just bonus.
