Kara DioGuardi: Hopefully They’ll Keep Me On ‘American Idol’
May 1, 2009 – Kara DioGuardi tells TV Guide she doesn’t know if she’ll be back next season on ‘American Idol’. “I’m only here for one season,” DioGuardi said while at the Phoenix House’s 6th Annual Triumph for Teens Gala. “That’s what we’ve discussed. So we’ll see what happens. Hopefully, they’ll keep me on.”
Simon Cowell meanwhile wasn’t exactly offering a ringing endorsement for Kara’s return. “I would imagine so, but the only say I have is about Ryan, Randy and Paula,” he said. “I’ve always made it clear that I wouldn’t like to do the show without them. So that’s all I’m really concerned about.”
