HOLLYWOOD - American Idol Judge Jennifer Lopez has apologized to the producers of American Idol, it's sponsors, her AI fellow judges, host Ryan Seacrest, and the 30 million viewers who saw her 'meltdown' on the number one reality show in America.
Jennifer admitted that it was very embarrassing for her to have to admit but she blamed it all totally on the fact that she was PMSing.
Lopez said that being on her period only amplified her sadness at the fact that she had to cut contestant #75, Christopher Mendelbaum, since she had really been touched by his background story.
Back in December, Mendelbaum, an auto mechanic rushed into The Sisters of The Dangling Participle Convent in Boston and singled handedly rescued seven nuns from the building that had been totally engulfed in flames.
According to the supermarket tabloid Grapevine Yakking, the fire had started when one of the sisters, identified as Sister Mary Daisy, 93, had apparently fallen asleep while smoking in bed.
"La Tush" Lopez as she is known said that the story really touched her even more than the story about the 16-year-old singer, Carina Greenglass, 15, from Milwaukee who was living in the hay bin at Milwaukee's Hunk of Cheese Petting Zoo.
J.Lo did say that she wanted to thank Steven Tyler for immediately sensing that something was wrong and instantly giving her CPR. Tyler grinned from ear-to-ear and remarked that it was his pleasure.
Meanwhile Randy "The Black Dawg" Jackson was overheard telling Ryan Seacrest that he was going to look into taking some CPR classes at La Brea Junior College as soon as possible.
Lopez did assure the producer of AI Simon Shindlebocker that she would not be quitting after all and that she was looking forward to having a very successful year on the top rated show.
J.Lo grinned and whispered to Steven that the producers will also let her plug any songs she records, any movies she makes, or any cosmetics she introduces.
Next week Jennifer is scheduled to use the American Idol stage to debut her latest hit single titled, "Gettin' It On, On The Floor, Uh Huh."
