I couldn’t pay attention to the performances on last night’s American Idol. Why? Because I was too busy trying to get a glimpse of contestant Carly Smithson’s stomach to see if she looked pregnant. Rumor is that the 24-year-old Idol finalist is expecting a child.
Smithson is married so it wouldn’t be a big scandal, except that there’s never been a pregnant contestant in the top ten. I’m not sure if there’s ever been a pregnant contestant, period.
Which brings me to my next question: Are they even allowed to have sex once they’ve passed the sacred doors of the American Idol enclave? I mean, with anyone besides Paula, that is.
