Another Paula Rumor

MSNBC’s Courtney Hazlett is floating another theory about why Kara DioGuardi is joining “Idol”…

She wrote that a source told “OK!” that “they want another female in case Paula misses a taping.”

Hazlett quotes another source as saying that there were many times they had to cover for Paula during the live show. “She wouldn’t just totally disappear. She’d come back—just maybe not in time for live television.”

Paula’s tardiness getting to her seat is well documented, but I’ve never heard of her actually missing any part of a show.

And from what I’ve read, she’s not the only judge show who cuts it close during the live tapings…

So, I’ll just file this one strictly in the rumor category…
