The former ‘American Idol’ judge is now a mom! After years of heartbreak and failed pregnancy attempts, Kara and her husband Mike McCuddy finally welcomed a son via a surrogate on Jan. 31 — congrats!
Kara DioGuardi and her husband Mike McCuddy are now proud parents! After years of pregnancy struggles, including failed IVF treatments and miscarriages, the couple finally welcomed their first child, a son named Greyson James Carroll McCuddy.
The former ‘American Idol’ judge has announced that her first child will be welcomed through gestational surrogacy in the next few weeks! What great news!
Kara DioGuardi may not be involved with American Idol anymore, but the former judge made an exciting announcement of her own on the day of the show’s 12th season premiere! Kara has confirmed on Jan. 16 that she and husband Mike McCuddy are expecting a baby boy through a gestational surrogate within the next few weeks!
Kara tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that sometimes she just needs a break from music, but she also offers up advice for Simon and other reality show judges!
Kara DioGuardi judged American Idol alongside Simon Cowell for seasons eight and nine, but when they parted ways, it didn’t mean the end of their relationship. Kara, who’s now the head judge of Bravo’s Platinum Hit, still makes time to support Simon on his new show, The X Factor. She tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that she will be tuning in to watch the season premiere of The X Factor on Sept. 21, but doesn’t plan to watch the show “religiously” given her own hectic career.
The former ‘American Idol’ judge reveals in a heartbreaking new book that she suffered sex abuse as an 11-year-old and was harrassed even as her songwriting career took off.
Kara DioGuardi tells some dark secrets in her new book A Helluva High Note, describing the horror of being molested as a young girl — and facing date-rape as an adult.

Kara will be judging and award-winning singer/songwriter Jewel will be hosting a new Bravo show, Going Platinum — will YOU watch?
Goodbye to the old, hello to the new! Just like Paula Abdul is getting a new dance show, another former American Idol judge, Kara DioGuardi, is launching her solo TV career as well. The 39-year-old award-winning songwriter is going to host a new song-writing competition show on Bravo called Going Platinum.
It was confirmed today that J. Lo, Steven and Randy Jackson would make up the judging panel on Idol, but I don’t think this motley crew is going to gel! Do you?
What oh what will become of my beloved American Idol now that Simon Cowell, Ellen DeGeneres and Kara DioGuardi have been replaced by Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler? I think I have an idea — and the outcome is NOT going to be pretty. Read more & VOTE!
A new report says that Steven Tyler is joining Jennifer Lopez as the newest judge on American Idol – and I’m bummed. Elton John would have been so much better!
Dim the lights, because you’re about to meet your next American Idol…judge. Rather anticlimactic, no? This is exactly how I felt upon learning that Steven Tyler had finally inked a deal to become one of Idol‘s replacement judges. Read more & VOTE!
For all of you that thought American Idol’s ninth season contestant Casey would turn to rock, you’ve been mistaken — he’s releasing an album on Sony Nashville!
Yee-haw! American Idol‘s resident hottie (otherwise known as Kara DioGuardi’s cougar prey), Casey James, has announced that he’s finally releasing his first album – and it isn’t what you’re expecting him to sing!
Even though new reports say that Jennifer’s future as an American Idol judge ain’t gonna happen — many are saying it’s simply not true and we WILL see her on Fox! Do you really think they’re going to get rid of J.Lo?
And the shakeup continues … Last week Jennifer Lopez was a lock to fill Kara DioGuardi’s shoes (she still hasn’t heard whether or not she’s fired, PS), but reports suggest J.Lo’s diva demands were too much for American Idol producers!< Click to read more & VOTE!
Apparently Ryan Seacrest is the only Idol personality guaranteed a spot next season!
Oh no! Randy Jackson might be joining Kara DioGuardi and Ellen DeGeneres in the American Idol unemployment line, according to the Dawg himself. “The only thing that’s for sure is Ryan [Seacrest],” Randy tells E! News. “Nothing has been decided.” If Randy gets the boot, that means the judges’ panel would look completely different when the show returns this January. Jennifer Lopez is expected (but not confirmed) to be joining the table, as well as Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler, who said “I’m doing it” after a July 31 concert in Las Vegas. And with auditions for season 10 already underway — Ryan tweeted about a “hudge crowd for idol auds” while he was “rolling up to jersey” on Aug. 3 — time is running out for a final decision to be made!
Sure, Steven has been in the industry forever, but his presence is NOT going to boost ratings, Fox!
When Steven Tyler confirmed he was to be the newest judge on American Idol at a recent concert, I was beyond disappointed. Beyond his cool cat persona, what can he really offer America? Don’t get me wrong, I like his band, Aerosmith. However, I don’t find Steven appealing in the slightest, especially when there are so many better options.Read more
