Kiss and Tell, The Fall of Paul Abdul
Tonight at 10 p.m., ABCs Primetime Live will air Fallen Idol, the story of 2003 American Idol contestant, Corey Clark. Clark alleges he engaged in an intimate relationship with Abdul that included his being coached and groomed by her to succeed in the show. Clark was ousted from the show for withholding information regarding a 2002 arrest record. In 2003 Ruben Studdard was named American Idol, but ABC questioned other 2003 contestants who felt the allegations would mean Clark had an unfair advantage over other contestants. Clark’s story is corroborated by a voice mail left by Abdul asking him not to speak to reporters should they call him. In addition, Clark’s parents recall their son mentioning the affair and fielding phone calls from Abdul to Clark at their home.
Remember When We Were Young and You Were Mine…
My Boo, Marcia R., turns 28 today. I met the charming DC beauty in 2002 and we’ve been fast friends ever since. Marcia plans to spend her birthday evening at home tonight, but special plans may change her idea of curling up to the boob-tube.

Cat Got Your Tongue?
The new Blog style format for the Morning Edition was created to give each of you a voice. That is, we can now stay in touch, hear everyone’s take on our Morning Edition – and other issues – and keep our e-mail accounts clear of clutter. At the end of each Blog posting there is a small envelope with the word “Comment(s)” by it. By clicking on the envelope icon you will be allowed to post your comments, opinions, shout-outs, etc. On your first attempt to post comments you will be asked to develop a screen name – any name you’d like – and a password. This will maintain the integrity of your posts and prevent anyone from making comments using your name. Simply ask the site to remember your name and password OR just write it down somewhere…. It’s as easy as that. Also, this Friday we will announce the majority vote for our July gathering date based on your responses to the 4/26 Special Edition on our Blog. If you haven’t done so already, please get set-up and respond to the Special Edition invitation today.
Keep passin’ the open windows…
