Crash and Burn
Yesterday, I went from a Washington Post high to an American Idol crash!
I’m crushed that Tatiana Del Toro was booted from the show! (How’d you like to cut up that dress for an art quilt?)
OK, I know she’s a freak. I know she’s not the best singer. I know she’s overly emotional and overly dramatic. However, like a man who finds himself marrying an ax-murdering inmate from the female ward — ” but I love her.”
Now, I love Tatiana almostas much as I love naughty girl, J’amie King (who just happens to be Tatiana’s separated-at-birth twin as you can see).
I don’t think I’ll watch Idol again this season — what’s the point? It’s all become so milk-toast and bland and Daddy needs some stimulation. What were the producers thinking? I’ll tell you what I’m thinking: It’s time for new producers.
Now I’m hooked on Hell’s Kitchen!
