After 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.
