Kara DioGuardi's Husband Shows Up in Idol Audience

By February 25, 2010

Follow me on:

Kara Dioguardi and husbandAfter his wife went crazy over American Idol contestant Casey James last night (more about that here), Kara Dioguardi's husband showed up in the audience on Thursday night -- perhaps to keep an eye on the situation.

Mike McCuddy, who is a general contractor who Kara met when he worked on the house next door to hers, was pointed out by Ryan at the start of the show.

He seems to be having fun with the situation, though some viewers thought he would be none too happy with his wife's flirting. "If I was Kara's husband I would be sooo pissed at her right now!," one reader commented after last night's episode.

Kara and Mike have been married since July, 2009.

I just wanted to comment on Kara’s husband being at week 1…Thursday’s elimination. I think her husband SHOULD NOT have been there. To me it looks like he is insecure and maybe jealous. Kara is a very smart women who seems to be very in love with her husband, and so why not make her job as a judge on American Idol be fun. Casey is juicy, and she is a women who knows when she sees a attractive man!! I LOVE YOU KARA, YOU ROCK!!!

I’m sorry Elizabeth but I could not understand your English. Where are you from? Well anyway, I guess Kara’s husband is not really that jealous, he just went there to check things out and show to the world that they should stop pushing Kara towards Casey because she’s got a nice and loving husband.

Oh come on now. Kara and Mike are happily married. Yes Kara has a little crush on Casey but that doesn’t mean she loves him. She’s in love with Mike and as for him being jealous…as if! Idol are just playing on this scenario to get viewers, publicity and ratings and look it’s working.

Kara has become so annoying this season. She exudes this self-righteous aura when critiquing the contestants. I mean c’mon, is she really that great of an artist herself? Can she do what these kids are doing? And what is this thing with Simon? She is trying too hard to hava an alliance with him or prove that she has an alliance with him…sickening!

I think that Kara shouldn’t be flirting as much but you know what? It’s actually cute. And also it’s for PUBLICITY!!! So it doesn’t mean it means anything. Besides her husband can watch american idol on TV. He doesn’t need to be insecure. If he can’t trust Kara then how can she trust him.

I think Kara is like a school girl, and should grow up!
She also protrays that she is afraid to set to close to Ellen, does she not like her? I love Idol but sometimes I just don’t understand Kara’s demurer.

Why is it that Kara does not interact with Ellen at all. Is she a big homophobe? Maybe she’s attracted to Ellen? ha. And the way she is schmoozing up to Simon now that Paula is gone is just plain wierd. If I were Ellen I would be wondering why I’m being dissed.
