The Courtney Love “American Idol” Rumor is a Pile of Horse Manure

(WENN)

I knew it had to be too good to true. The story we relayed to you about Courtney Love possibly joining the “American Idol” judge panel is nothing more than wishful thinking. Sigh. Apparently, Usmagazine.com had falsely reported that she’d received a phone call from the Executive Producer of the show offering her a spot. And Courtney responded via her website, according to Star:

“Court said on 30 Jan 2007 at 7:47 pm This kerfuffle is NONSENSE, i said to a friend who obviously passed igt on the wrong way that it was awierdly brilliant PRANK CALL, if it was NOT a prank call i woul dnever ever do that, ive never watche dthat show except once with my daughter i went to the final night, I couldnt even get ON that show nor would i wantt o and no offense to anyone who has been on that show and wantsto be on that show- i have no interest at this point in my life…”

I’d continue to quote the rambling, except that it’s really more of the same. And with that, my dreams of a Simon, Courtney and Paula violent on-camera three-way are disappearing before my very eyes.
