After seeing its ratings taken over by Dancing with the Stars, the producers of the hit show American Idol had an epiphany. "Kate Gosselin should so be the next Simon Cowell."
Since Simon Cowell isn't making enough people angry anymore, the show needs to find someone who can effectively top Cowell in the hate department, both as a hater and as a hated judge. And, since Cowell has said that this is his last season on Idol, the producers have been having a problem finding the right match for Simon's seat, or the "hot seat" as they jokingly like to refer to it.
However, after seeing the spike in ratings that Dancing with the Stars got last week, they are sure that the only person who could fill the bill even better than Cowell would be Kate Gosselin and are now in talks to have her audition for the part.
"My money's on Gosselin," said an unidentified source. "Simon was great in the beginning, but since the media has shown his softer side of giving money to various charities and what not, everyone now knows he has a heart, and that is fatal to the position of being a grumpy judge who gives the singers a really hard time. But Kate Gosselin? She has shown that she can maintain a bad mood throughout an entire season and not be called a push over."
The producers are reportedly going to do whatever they can to get Kate for the spot. "Can't you just picture Kate and DioGuardi sitting next to each other? Classic!"
