AMERICAN IDOL Defends Itself Against ROSIE Allegations

Love her or hate her, ROSIE O’DONNELL sure knows how to stir up controversy. In response to her recent tirade on THE VIEW, AMERICAN IDOL sent this press release:

“Without wishing to add to the obvious self-promotion of Ms. O’Donnell, I feel as though I must refute her absurd and ridiculous claims that AMERICAN IDOL is racist and/or weightist.

“Ms. O’Donnell has, once again, spoken without thought or knowledge. Viewers need only look at the show tonight to realize that AMERICAN IDOL constantly confirms to America that talent has nothing to do with weight or color.”
Nigel Lythgoe, Executive Producer, AMERICAN IDOL

Seriously, did you ever think you’d be this interested in THE VIEW?

    Wow, Rosie from the View is making allegations about American Idol and the Exec Prod is defending the show. All I can say is who cares, who cares, and who cares; they all suck. Yawn!!!

    With Rosie’s opinions, who knows what will happen when she appears with Susan Lucci on SOAPnet this Saturday at 6 pm ET/PT?
