Kandi Burruss Taking Paula Abdul's "Idol" Seat?+Method Man Shot A Fan?+Other Ish

Now that Paula Abdul announced via Twitter last night that she won't be returning as a judge on "American Idol", folks are starting to whisper about who's going to take her place.  And word has it that "ATL Housewife" and singer/songwriter Kandi Burruss may be hitting the judges' panel with Randy, Simon, and Kara. The new season begins taping  in January and producers have not confirmed if they will continue with a judging panel of three or add Burruss.

Here's Paula's Twitstatement:
With sadness in my heart, I’ve decided not to return to #IDOL. I’ll miss nurturing all the new talent, but most of all.. I’ll miss nurturing all the new talent,but most of all being a part of a show that I helped from day1become an international phenomenon. What I want to say most, is how much I appreciate the undying support and enormous love that you have showered upon me It truly has been breathtaking, especially over the past month I do without any doubt have the BEST fans in the entire world and I love you all
I just want to know if she was sipping out her mystery red cup while she was typing this....

And in other news, a fan claims Method Man shot her up back in '08.  Like, with a gun.  According to TMZ: According to a lawsuit filed last week, Mary Anderson tried to get an autograph from Method Man after the show by handing him her ticket stub. Anderson claims that's when Method "pulled out an air gun and ... began firing pellets." Anderson says she was struck at least six times. She is suing for unspecified damages. WTF?

And Serena Williams was spotted heading to dinner in Hollywood last night:

Here's a thought...Why not

Here's a thought...Why not find a judge that can really freakin sing! Kandi nor Paula are true vocalists. Kara can't sing either. Randy at least produces and Simon is well simon so at least one person on the panel should have real vocals. I will not be watching until they hire a panel judge that can damn sing for real. F american idol

1st: I agree wwith whoever

1st: I agree wwith whoever mentioned the big booty trick on the little side panel. I come to this site because it is classy and I dont need that popping up while I am at work. Anyway, I will have to write Tasha about that. 2nd: Kandi is a little hood, but if her say ahs anything to do with who they pick as contestants, I think we will finally get some real singers on the show. I am so tired of thes "cookie cutter" wanna-be's.

Meth seems grimey enough to

Meth seems grimey enough to shoot someone with a pellet gun, and he probably laughed when he did it thinking it was funny. Most of the folks in Wu Tang, him included, are crazy IMO. Just like Ann said above--the way he talked ish about women in that interview a few weeks back---it's not that hard to believe. As far as Kandi's concerned, I don't think they're seriously considering her. Once the American Idol's ratings completely tank-then they might give her a chance. That's how they usu do our celebs--wait 'til ratings go down to give us a shot.

I wonder if Paula decided to not come back to Idol or did they not renew her contract...

They could take some money

They could take some money from Simon, Randy and Ryan and give that chic a raise. Come on….I work for EEOC and that chit ain’t fair for them to give the men all that money and she gets next to nuthin. Although I’d take that nuthin (side eye)…. for real though. That’s discrimination ~~~~~~~~~~~~ The only person on that show from day one who was a household name was Paula. I did not know any of the others. I can't belive she only gets a little over $2 mill a year. Look how long the show has been on. I think I read that Simon could make $144 mill this year alone. They need Paula. With or without her the show has run it's course, may as well keep the same players. I give it two yrs before they pull the plug.

(insert witticism here) aka Chloe aka Bedrested Broad: I am truly sick of seeing this big booty trick on the side of the screen…Could we at least PRETEND like this is a classy website?!? Me too! If my boss catches me with the YBF screen up "without" this big booty lady, it's ok, because I can play it off. It's really not a good look if I get caught reading comments with this half-naked batty lady just prominent on the screen....LOLOL!

I don't really watch AI

I don't really watch AI anymore, but when I did Paula was very instrumental to the chemistry of that show. Paying Ryan all that money and giving Paula what they offered shame on them.

Kandi is not taking Paula's

Kandi is not taking Paula's seat. Think about it, taping for AI starts TOMORROW in Denver for the new season that begins airing in January. The new team would already be in place. Plus, everyone knew that by adding another female last season, it was an attempt to make transition without Paula easier.

I agree with you, but I think Kandi would make a great judge. She has more knowledge of the business than that new broad.

I like the dress the girl is

I like the dress the girl is wearing behind Serena. Kandi s face may not be mainstream, but her song writing abilities are. lawsuits don't happen overnight. evidence has to be collected, papers filed, interviews, etc. If this story is true, no one knows if she seeking compensation, or just payment for medical bills. pellet guns can be pumped, vary in power, and can fire pellets simultaneously. Given MM resent hate speech on Black women, is this story that unbelievable???

Why is Serena carrying a purse if her belongings are in her hand? Last season watching Idol was not much fun, (they cleaned Paula up). The two prior years I watched because I too wanted to know what was in Paul's Coke a Cola cup. LOL.

I do agree that Kandi is not

I do agree that Kandi is not main stream enough but I do believe she is very qualified to judge talent. I mean if Kara can do it why not Kandi, plus she seems like such a sweet soul. She would probably be the nurturer of the group.
