I received a very disturbing email from my dear friend Robin “Tussy” Abramson today. Please read on:
“I get this email from a friend every day with celeb gossip and this bullet was in today’s:
An “American Idol” staffer is running around telling people that the judges and producers have handpicked the final four contestants, despite the fact that 11 hopefuls are still battling for the top spot.

Or like learning that Bonds and McGwire were on the ‘roids. Just totally unfathomable. I’m just not sure that if I was going to fix the most popular show on TV that those would be my top 4. I would be thinking more along the lines of Jorge Nunez….
