Behind the scenes on American Idol, a “secret plot” was hatched to remove judge Mariah Carey and bring back fan favorite Jennifer Lopez. As soon as Mariah got wind of the coup, her team threatened legal action. People closely connected to the show are calling this "just another ridiculous Idol judge rumor."
The Hollywood Reporter has the juicy details, from several sources, of what could have been a mid-season shake-up in a desperate effort to stanch the hemorrhaging viewership. There’s “panic” inside the Idol offices, they say, due to the show's lowest ratings since the debut season. Before next season, the entire judging panel may be given their pink slips.
Interestingly, producers are reportedly negotiating even today with J-Lo to appear on the season finale in May.

Sharon Osbourne opened up about her split from husband Ozzy on Tuesday's episode of The Talk.
Last week, reports surfaced that the two were separating after 31 years of marriage. Ozzy posted a note on Facebook saying that for the last 18 months he's been "drinking and taking drugs." But he insisted that he was working on his sobriety and that he and Sharon are "not divorcing."
Today Sharon said, "Everything that was printed...has been distorted. The only thing that was true was the Facebook posting that my husband did."
She continued, "He's been using alcohol and prescription drugs for the past year and a half. That's true. That's very true. Everybody knows he's been struggling with this his entire life." She also reiterated that they are not getting divorced.
Sharon ended by saying, "We're dealing with it. We've dealt with worse... This, too, shall pass. Otherwise, my husband will be taken to hospital to get my foot removed from his (rear)."
