Let the scandals begin. It happens every audition season, inevitably
one of the auditioners who American Idol
chose to focus on has an
unknown arrest record, naked pictures, or a previous recording contract
that managed to sneak past Idol
's crack background check.
It's not even
Hollywood week and season 9 is shaping up to have it's own scandals.
Not only is there Matt Lawrence
, who we already know robbed a bank with
a bebe gun, Toddrick Hall
's possibly shady past, and Angela Martin's
, now there is also the shirtless wonder's arrest record and
a Denver auditioner exposed as a habitual reality TV contestant.
Let's start with the shirtless wonder (birth name: Casey James), he of
easy smiled, handsome face, exposed pecs, and just exposed jail time.
Turns out the guy that got the ladies swooning has spent some time in
jail for driving while intoxicated, driving with an invalid license and
reckless driving. Radar.com
broke the story this morning, with all the
detail about Casey's two stints in jail in 2001 and 2002. Of course,
that was seven years ago and people can change nasty habits in that
time and hopefully learn valuable life lessons, like don't drive drunk, moron. However, part of me thinks there's a
swath of America who's a lot less understanding about drinking and
driving than say, Frenchie Davis' sexy pics that got her kicked off of
. Plus, wasn't this guy introduced with a sad story about a nasty
motorcycle accident? That's a lot less sob and sympathetic of a story if his arrest record had come into play...the plot thickens.
Next to join the season 9 scandal sheet is the helium voiced, supremely
annoying, supposedly named Nicci Nix. If Nicci looked a little
familiar, her 14 hour flight from Florence seemed fishy, and her voice
just seemed a little too high and affected to be believable, you would
be right. Nicci Nix, once known as Nicole Palmeri, is something of a
reality TV veteran. Zap2It
broke the story this morning,
exposing Nicci/Nicole as a repeat reality TV offender. She's previously
appeared on Fear Factor, Making the Band, Next
, and Date My Mom
then, her voice didn't sound like a smurf on helium and she said she
was from California. I knew
there was something off about this girl
from moment one, and I was right. I hope she gets called out on her
fame seeking past during Hollywood, I'll grab the popcorn.
Nicci's even recorded a few music videos, which make Paris Hilton seem
like a song writing virtuoso. Stars are blind y'all...but reality TV
watchers aren't. Here's Nicci's masterpiece "Sexcessful Virgin," listen
at your ears' peril.
Who do you think will be the next season 9 auditioner to be struck with a scandal? Hollywood Week always provides some doozies.(Images Courtesy of FOX)
