American Idol: Kara DioGuardi Found Out She Was Fired Through Newspaper

August 15, 2010 11:00 AM by Nancy Floyd


It seems that American Idol producers are remaining so quiet about the recent staff changes that they haven’t even talked to the stars of the show! Kara DioGuardi reportedly learned that she had been fired by reading it in the newspaper! Her dad, senate hopeful Joe DioGuardi, talks about his daughter’s disappointment and what she’ll do next…

There are so many shake-ups happening at American Idol that the stars themselves can’t even keep up. Kara DioGuardi has reportedly been fired from the judging panel although no one bothered to tell her. “She read it the way you did and I did,” her dad, Joe DioGuardi says. ”Would you believe she did not hear — and still has not heard — anything?”

Fox executives haven’t confirmed the news about Kara DioGuardi’s departure, but she seems to believe it’s the truth. According to her dad, Kara DioGuardi is frustrated and upset about the way the whole situation was handled. ”Her disappointment is that that’s the way she’s being treated and she feels that’s not proper,” Joe DioGuardi says. “I think they’re trying to create a lot of buzz… they’re trying to reformat the thing.”

Regardless of whether or not Kara DioGuardi returns to American Idol for season 10, her father is confident that her career won’t be hindered and she’ll be ok in the end. ”Kara has a very deep career in music. She’ll be fine,” Joe DioGuardi says. “Would she want to do it another year? I think so… I think at some point [she] will confront them on that.”
