When the folks at The Young and the Restless needed a really lousy singer, they went out and found themselves a great one. American Idol Season 3 runner up Diana DeGarmo joins the CBS soap October 31 as Angelina, the Jersey girl daughter of mob boss Angelo Veneziano (Mike Starr). She comes to Genoa City with dreams of being a chart-topping vocalist. And what Angelina wants, Angelina gets! TV Guide Magazine spoke with DeGarmo about her trash-tastic new role.
TV Guide Magazine: Sounds like Y&R is getting some comic relief! Give us the deets on this chick.
DeGarmo: Well, she's an over-the-top, gum-smacking, tone-deaf princess whose hair is as large as her attitude. [Laughs] And I'm having a blast! Angelina believes she's Barbra Streisand mixed with Celine Dion and her father — who thinks his spoiled-brat daughter sings like a choir of angels — really puts the pressure on Devon [the young music producer played by Bryton James] to show her the ropes and make her a success. It's fantastically hilarious because it puts the poor kid in a horrible predicament!
TV Guide Magazine: Word is, she'll develop a mad crush on Kevin Fisher [Greg Rikaart].
DeGarmo: Ooh, she wants him bad! Angie has her eyes, her heart and her body set on landing Kevin — and it scares him to death! He's just so sweet ...

I have never seen any show transcend the boundaries of age, race, religion, weight and politics as beautifully as American Idol has in the past six years. I can discuss it with my husband's 70-year-old uncle (who thinks Sanjaya should be shot), my cabdriver (who cries when he hears Kat McPhee), my gynecologist (who thinks Paula's hysterical... in a bad way), and my 6- and 4-year-old cousins, who think the sun rises and sets with Simon Cowell. That's right, you heard me, they like Simon (not to mention all the cute boys on the show). So I asked some of my peeps what they thought were some of the best moments from American Idol, and this is what we came up with.

CMT in January will premiere Gone Country, a reality competition in which the likes of Bobby Brown, Carnie Wilson, Twisted Sister's Dee Snider, Idol finalist Diana DeGarmo, Julio Iglesias Jr., Maureen McCormick and R&B artist Sisqo are tutored by Big & Rich's John Rich in the ways of country crooning. According to the Reporter, the celebs will cohabitate in a Nashville manse for two weeks as they compete in challenges involving the on- and off-stage country-music lifestyle. At the end, Rich will dub one a winner, and he/she will release a song about, I am guessing, a great love gone wrong.
