American Idol contracts prohibit judges and contestants from ever hooking up!
Even if Kara DioGuardi, 39, wasn’t happily married to general contractor Mike McCuddy, there still wouldn’t be a happily-ever-after with Casey James, 27, in her future. When American Idol contestants first join the show, they must agree not to mix business with pleasure, according to contracts obtained by TMZ. The document states: “Neither I nor any members of my family or my friends will enter into any personal, social, business, and or financial relationships with any of the judges, host(s), guest stars…” BUT there is a catch!
The rule only lasts for six months after the show. So if things end up not working out between Kara and her hubby (not that we wish them anything other than the best) Casey might still have a shot!
