Courtney Love To Be The New “Wasted” Female Judge On American Idol?

I kid. I know, Courtney’s busting her ass to clean up her act and I totally appreciate that. Apparently, I’m not the only one. is reporting that executive producer of “American Idol,” Nigel Lythgoe, has contacted Courtney in the hopes of convincing her to take a spot on the panel.

“He called,” Love tells “He was wondering if I was interested. I thought it was kind of weird but brilliant.”

Of course, the question on everyone’s minds is whether or not Love will be replacing Paula “Barely Lucid” Abdul, or will they simply throw her into the mix like a wet cat to watch the fur fly? In any case, Simon better hire his ass some security, if he wants to keep his nipples intact.
